Found November 16, 2011 on Kukla's Korner:
That is what the New York Rangers are in after defeating the New York Islanders last night by a score of 4-2. With excellent goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist, great penalty killing and timely goal scoring, the Blueshirts were able to pick up their seventh straight victory to improve to 10-3-3 on the season. It certainly was not an easy victory by any means for the Rangers. The Rangers were undisciplined last night and gave the Islanders power play chance after chance to get the lead but thanks to the stellar play of Lundqvist, the Islanders were not able to cash in. Lundqvist (31 saves) and his never say die athleticism helped the Rangers steal two points last night on Long Island. It was also great to see Rangers’ 9-year man Brad Richards come through in the clutch with the go ahead goal with just less than five minutes to go in the hockey game. This is why the team got him and right now, at least, he is delivering. Continue reading "Seventh Heaven for the Blueshirts"

J.T. Miller Proving Rangers Right For Selecting Him At 15

When the New York Rangers selected J.T. Miller 15th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, many, including myself, were unsure of the quality of that selection.  Players with bigger name recognition and reportedly higher upside were still on the board when the Rangers took Miller.  Thus far Miller is doing everything he can to quell the doubters and reward the Rangers for...

Pregame: Rangers Want Lucky 7 Against Rival Islanders

Exactly one month ago, when the Rangers and Islanders met for the first time this season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Blueshirts were just returning to the U.S. after their lengthy European road trip that opened the season. New York (City) ended up losing that game by a score of 4-2 as they did not capitalize on prime opportunities to put the puck in the net. This time around, however...

Girardi All Star Write-in Campaign in Full Swing

Lots of excitement as the Dan Girardi All Star write-in campaign began yesterday with numerous tweets, Facebook messages and e-mails encouraging others to vote for the Rangers underappreciated defenseman or just letting other Blueshirts fans know that they had voted. Here's a pic reader John D. sends me of him doing his part...The campaign also received a nice plug from Greg...

The Fan Blog: All Thanks to Avery by: Rags2Riches

[i] Author's note: Hit the "Discuss" link to comment on any individual topic in a regular Hockeybuzz forum [/i] The Rangers have not lost a game since recalling Sean Avery from the Connecticut Whale on October 31. Contrast the 4-0 record with him in the lineup against the 5-3-3 record with him off the ice, and it looks pretty good for the agitator. This continues...

Torts: You Become a Good Organization By Keeping Your Kids

Pat Leonard at the Daily News has this quote from John Tortorella on the Rangers building a winner from within..."Well that's how you build. That's how you become, I think, a good organization," John Tortorella said Tuesday morning at the Coliseum. "You keep your kids, you keep developing your kids, you add some pieces along the way, but you just don't...

Lucky Seven: Rangers Keep Rolling

Brad Richards is taking to life as a big star in New York quite well. He's showing up in Page Six for squiring starlets around town on his nights off and leading the Rangers to wins when he's working, something that's known as Jetering around these parts. Well, it's not really known as Jetering, but it should be especially when the Rangers are as hot as they are right...

Dee Karl: Nino In - Who is Out? Isles vs Rangers

I wasn't going to start a new entry, but it looks like I should. Nino Niederreiter is definitely IN, but Jack Capuano will not release the name of the one who sits until closer to game time. Evgeni Nabokov will be back in goal tonight. According to Art Staple, his only win this season was against the Rangers. We need another one tonight.

Dee Karl: Isles vs Habs

Isles vs. Habs with Okposo out of the line up again along with Mark Eaton and Nabokov back between the pipes. There is a large contingency of Habs fans who may have taken advantag of the $30 discounted tickets. The first period has seen the Isles taking a few penalties. Just a little undisciplined if you ask me. I put in for a Nielsen goal in the first. It would be nice if...
