In case you missed it the other day, Dominic Moore –out with an oblique injury– has stated he expects to return to the lineup on Saturday. Moore has been out since October 29, missing seven games in that time. Without him, the Rangers have used a combination of J.T. Miller and Brandon Mashinter to fill the hole in the lineup.
When Moore returns the Rangers will need to sit a player, and there are really only three candidates to sit right now: Miller, Mashinter, and Benoit Pouliot. Miller barely played in the Rangers 3-2 loss to New Jersey (5 minutes), but still managed to play more than Mashinter (3 minutes). Pouliot has been the topic of debate lately due to inconsistent play. A case can be made for any of the three to sit or be demoted.
But it’s not just Moore whose return is imminent. Rick Nash has been skating at practice –albeit with a yellow non-contact jersey– and he is no longer an unknown. He should be returning with...

Per Pat Leonard, Rick Nash is wearing a full contact jersey today in practice. This is nothing short of great news, as his time table for return –which had been as long as week-to-week earlier this week– is now day-to-day. The Rangers are that much closer to their best player returning to the lineup.
Also per Leonard, Michael Del Zotto appears to be a healthy scratch, as he is...
Quietly having a strong season: Brian Boyle
A strong, prolonged period of results was slightly tarnished with the sloppy, unnecessary loss to the Devils earlier this week. Sloppy goals, defensive lapses and a lack of finish had many reminding us of the early season edition of the Rangers. With games against the Canadiens and Kings on the weekend it’s a big couple of days for the...
Rumors of Brad Richards’ demise were greatly exaggerated. That old cliché is thrown around a lot, but it’s especially holding true this year for Brad Richards and his New York Rangers career, which looked to be all but dead and buried following the team’s playoff elimination last spring. After a tumultuous 2012-2013 season, Richards is […]
Former New York Rangers forward Sean Avery is reportedly off the market. According to the NY Post’s Page Six, Avery and fashion model Hilary Rhoda recently got engaged. Avery and Rhoda have supposedly had an on-and-off relationship for years, having most recently reconciled this past May. Rhoda’s mother and manager Marianne told the NY Post’s […]
Sean Avery was one of the most hated hockey players, but he is loved by beautiful Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Hilary Rhoda and that’s a good thing. The former NHL enforcer got engaged to the lovely Rhoda whom he was dating for three years as reported by People Magazine.

After an hour-long spin on the Madison Square Garden ice, New York Rangers forward Rick Nash is ready to practice with his teammates and could rejoin the lineup soon.
Nash skated for the fourth straight day on Tuesday and remained symptom-free from a concussion sustained Oct. 8 at San Jose.
He still needs work on his conditioning before he can play in a game, but Rangers coach...
It’s not fair that Derek Dorsett will always be compared with Brandon Prust, but he’s done a pretty good impersonation
That’s not really a fair title to Derek Dorsett, who could surely care less what Brandon Prust did in New York before Dorsett’s arrival. But fair or not, “Brandon Prust 2.0″ is how Dorsett was billed when he arrived in the Marian Gaborik blockbuster...
Rick Nash rejoined his Rangers’ teammates for today’s practice, his first time on the ice with the complete group since suffering a concussion on Oct. 8. Nash wore a yellow non-contact jersey and will ease himself back into full practices before resuming battle drills.
Nash said he expects to travel to Montreal with the team on Friday for Saturday’s game against the Canadiens...

New Jersey's Martin Brodeur outdueled Rangers counterpart Henrik Lundqvist, and that wasn't lost on New York coach Alain Vigneault.
Brodeur, the winningest goalie in NHL history, gutted out a 3-2 Devils victory over Lundqvist and the Rangers on Tuesday night. New Jersey took three one-goal leads and made the last one stick after Dainius Zubrus scored with 2:55 remaining...

We are now more than a quarter of the way through the 2013-14 season and I think it’s an appropriate time to do a bit of myth busting with regards to John Tortorella. Fans, media and players all seem generally impressed by what Tortorella has done thus far, which is a far cry from the nervousness that existed when it was first rumoured that Torts would...

November 14th, 1993: Madison Square Garden, NY: With the 25th running of the New York City Marathon taking place earlier in the day, the Rangers came racing home riding high with a seven game winning streak. They looked to extend that and their nine game unbeaten streak (8-0-1) against a struggling San Jose Sharks team with just five […]
