Powe and Staal skating at this AMs #NYR optional at MSG — Pat Leonard (@NYDNRangers) May 21, 2013 The two also did bag skates with the taxi players after practice, but neither will play in Game 3 tonight. Ryane Clowe did not skate, so the line-up will remain the same as Game 2. Here's Powe on his recovery from his second concussion this season (via Bergen Record)... “I feel good. It’s good to back on the ice and skating with the guys.It’s a few days of skating and I felt pretty good, so I’m just trying to keep skating, working out and trying to get back in the lineup." ...until I hear that Staal is feeling more comfortable with his vision, his skating on a daily basis means nothing. ...Rangers will continue to miss both Staal and Clowe in this series and will have a very difficult time climbing back into this series without them. I feel like a broken record with those two. As far as the Bruins go, it looks like they're going to stick with the...

Lineup changes: Girardi and McDonagh back together

Per Andrew Gross, Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh are back together as a pairing on defense. After an abysmal Game Two with Michael Del Zotto, Girardi will be reunited with McDonagh to form that top shutdown pair the Rangers split up after the Washington series. Del Zotto will be with Anton Stralman, and the John Moore-Steve Eminger pair remains the same. The change is likely two-fold...

The Rangers are closer to the Cup than you think

Big picture outlook > lockout shortened season. After the Rangers loss against Boston Sunday night, much of the Rangers fan base went into panic mode. The usual suspects came out and called for Tortorella’s head, Michael Del Zotto’s and to some extent Brad Richards, as if the loss was solely on them. We’ve been down this road before, and quite frankly, I wasn’t surprised...

Henrik Lundqvist Admits to Having Sore Left Shoulder, Says ‘Everybody Is Sore’ in Playoffs

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had just given up five goals to the Bruins in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series, as he quietly removed his goalie equipment in the New York dressing room. The goalie gingerly slid his Rangers jacket on, with a painful grimace on his face as he did so before answering questions from the media. As he answered the questions, he grabbed...

There’s Lundqvist Then Everyone Else

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, It was hardly earth-shattering stuff, nothing like saying a player “stinks” on the power play, for instance, but John Tortorella sure had it right before the playoffs started when the Rangers’ coach talked about legacies being made in the postseason and not in the regular-season. Ten games into the playoffs following last night’s...

Boyle Doesn't Think Rangers Are Done

After last night'sdemoralizing 2-1 loss to the Bruins, which put the Rangers in the inenviable position to come back from a 3-0 series hole, Brian Boyle tried to remain positive (via ESPN.com)... "We’ve got more hockey to play. We’re not done by any means." ...ummm Brian, yes you are. ...the most frustrating part about last night is that I can take...

NHL playoffs: Best of Tuesday

Nothing like a Rangers goal to shut up Pierre McGuire. The NBC Sports analyst was going on and on in the second period about how awful the New York power play breakout was, how it was "free-lancing." Shortly after his tirade, Ryan McDonagh scored to basically zip McGuire's lips. The goal gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead, but they went on to lose Game 3 to the visiting...

Rangers Lose Game 3; On Brink Of Elimination

Coming home to MSG after dropping the first two games in Boston, the Rangers knew they would have to win at least one of the next two games to have any chance of progressing in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. But the Rangers failed to take that essential first step Tuesday night as the Boston [...]

Henrik Lundqvist Living Up to Vezina Trophy Billing, Giving Rangers Chance to Steal Game 3 (Video)

Henrik Lundqvist and Tuukka Rask are widely regarded as two of the best goalies in the NHL. Lundqvist is making his case as the best here in Game 3, however. He’s made 23 saves through the first two periods of the Bruins-Rangers clash and is looking poised to steal this game for the Blueshirts. Of course, the B’s still have 20 minutes to see if there’s anything they can do...

Tortorella on Hagelin: “He Stinks”; Hagelin: “I don’t stink”

Rangers coach John Tortorella (courtesy of meetthematts.com) When I was a kid, one of my favorite movies to watch with my dad was “A Few Good Men” with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson. In the movie, Nicholson spouts off many classic lines, but one in particular fits the situation going on between John Tortorella and whoever else he decides to put in the news; “What...

One shift at a time

Can the Rangers duplicate what the Flyers did to the Bruins in 2010? Only three teams in Stanley Cup Playoff history have climbed back from a 3-0 deficit to win their series.  That’s the tall task that now faces the Rangers after they fell to the Bruins on home ice in Game Three, the team’s first loss at Madison Square Garden since March 24th.  Things are looking awfully bleak...

Lack of Depth the Rangers' Achilles Heel

I'd like to take you back to last June for a moment. In an interview with Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Mark Messier divulged his thoughts on a what he believed the Rangers needed to do that offseason in order to win a Stanley Cup.  "...teams that win the Stanley Cup get stronger as series move on, so for us this year the big thing is to add depth so we don’t...

Lundqvist to Get Shoulder Looked At

Dan Rosen at NHL.com reports that Henrik Lundqvist said he experienced some discomfort in his left shoulder after making a save on Daniel Paille with 4:52 remaining in the third period during yesterday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 2. "It's my shoulder, we'll see. We'll take a look at it." ...well that's not exactly what I wanted to hear this...

Torts Gone If Rangers Eliminated By Bruins?

Darren Dreger at TSN made some waves on the radio today when he said this about John Tortorella's future with the Rangers should his team be eliminated quickly by the Bruins... "If the New York Rangers were to be eliminated in short order by the Boston Bruins, is there a chance John Tortorella is replaced? Yes there is a chance, absolutely. No question about it. Glen...

Bruins battle back with two third period goals to beat Rangers 2-1; lead 3-0

Despite a terrific effort from Henrik Lundqvist the Bruins were able to come back with third period goals to beat the Rangers 2-1 and to take a 3-0 series lead.  Daniel Paille got the game-winning goal and Johnny Boychuk scored his fourth playoff goal as the Bruins fourth line was the difference in a very tight game.  Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves, many of them sparkling early...
