Optional morning skate for #NYR...same lineup tonight, Lundqvist in goal
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) April 16, 2013
...if it's not broke...
Meanwhile, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that both Derek Brassard and Marc Staal skated after the optional practice.
Dorsett told Gross that he does not have a timetable on when he might return or even when he'll resume contact.
As far as Staal goes, he informed Gross that his vision still blurry and is still trying to adjust to receiving passes.
...doesn't sound like either one of them will be back before the end of the season, especially when we hear that Staal's vision is still so compromised that he's not 100% confident receiving passes.

Oscar Lindberg and his heavily favored Skelleftea AIK squad jumped out to a 2-0 series lead over Lulea in the SEL Finals this weekend. Skelleftea won the games by scores of 1-0 (in OT) and 4-2. Lindberg has been held off the score sheet in both contests, but finished yesterday’s 4-2 win with a +1 rating (0 PIMs in both contests).
Lindberg is one of three non-AHL prospects...
We New Yorkers normally don't root for Bostonians, but after yesterday's horrific events at the Boston Marathon, I think it's safe to say that we're all praying for Bean Town right now.
In what could have been another tragedy for the New York Rangers organization, Dylan McIlrath was in Boston to checkout the race...
Wow scary moment. Was walking towards...
During last night's 4-2 loss in Philadelphia, John Moore, once again, displayed a smooth skating game that included a sweet pass through the neutral zone to spring Mats Zuccarello for the Rangers first goal. He even showed a little of that snarl he's been working on with Schoenfeld coming to the defense of Ryan Callahan.
On the other end of the spectrum, Michael Del...
Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that the one guy from the Marian Gaborik trade we haven't seen, Derek Dorsett, will begin skating this week.
Zipay adds that x-rays on Dorsett's broken clavicle indicate that it's healing well.
"I've got all this built-up energy and not being able to make an impact here is tough. I missed a few...
When looking at the New York Rangers since the 1997-98 season, it is easy to see that for close to decade, there were some rough seasons.
The team went seven straight years without making the postseason, had a lot of failed free-agent signings and ended up losing the likes of Brian Leetch, Mark Messier, Mike Richter, and Adam Graves to retirement or trade. For Blueshirt fans, it...

I had a prior engagement which kept me from watching the New York Rangers/Philadelphia Flyer's game live on Tuesday night so I set up the DVR and even turned off the cell phone to make sure that the outcome wasn't spoiled. Still in the time it took for the Flyers to dust off the Kate Smith recording of "God Bless America", I knew...
NEW YORK, April 17, 2013 –New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has recalled forward Chris Kreider from the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Kreider, 21, has registered one goal and three assists in six games since being assigned to Connecticut on April 3. He has recorded 12 goals and 11 assists for 23...
New York Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto was struck in the face by a puck that deflected off his own stick late in the 3rd period in a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center.
As he received treatment on the ice for a cut on his face that left him bleeding, some Flyers fans in attendance could be heard jeering, the injured Del Zotto, chanting...

The Rangers winger Carl Hagelin obviously doesn’t have much respect for Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. Tuesday night, Hagelin gave Schenn a little “who’s your daddy?” slash to a region no man wants to get hit.
Game officials either share Hagelin’s lack of respect for Schenn or were skating with their eyes closed because there was no penalty called on the play.
Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that while former Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke keeps surfacing as a possible replacement with the Dallas Stars, he's also been linked to the Rangers if Glen Sather steps aside.
...not a big fan of this at all. While Burke had success in Vancouver and Anaheim, his time in Toronto was a disaster.

Henrik Lundqvist is looking every bit like the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, and that may eventually be enough to get the New York Rangers back to the playoffs.
For now, they'll settle with him continuing his dominance of the Philadelphia Flyers.
With the Rangers trying to create a cushion for the final playoff position, Lundqvist is expected to remain in net in an effort...

With a 4-2 loss to the Flyers, last night became a worst case scenario for the New York Rangers. Not only did they lose, but the Senators, Islanders, and Jets all won with each gaining 2 points in the standings. With only 6 games remaining the Rangers are clinging to the 8th seed in the East, tied with the Jets, by virtue of having 1 game in hand.
A sloppy first period saw the...
