When I sat down to do this piece on the New York Rangers and New Jersey game as part of the NHL’s outdoor stadium series, I was going to do so in a “running diary” type of blog about the game itself. I got through the first period and decided to change it up a […]
BEST OF MAXIM
As the Rangers help the NHL's business boom in the Bronx, they're simultaneously focused on how best to spend their slice of the league's growing revenue pie.
Sunday's 7-3 Rangers win over the Devils at Yankee Stadium posted a 5.1 rating on NBC - the highest ever in New York for an NHL game on the network. Their Wednesday night showdown with the Islanders on NBC...
Despite the fine play of the team of late, both Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi could be in their final five weeks as New York Rangers. This was reported by Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie on Insider Trading on TSN as well as by Pierre LeBrun on ESPN.com on Tuesday.
"The Rangers are gauging interest in Ryan Callahan and I know that will be a big surprise to New...
After re-signing Henrik Lundqvist to a massive, seven-year extension earlier this season, finding common ground on a new deal with Captain Ryan Callahan jumped to the forefront of GM Glen Sather’s list of priorities. The two sides may not be close to a deal but Cally’s agent, Steven Bartlett of Sports Consulting Group, remains “optimistic” […]
It is fitting that the first hockey game ever to be played at Yankee Stadium ended with a dominating New York Rangers win. The Rangers got off to a slow start, with defensive miscues, sloppy play, and mediocre goaltending putting the Rangers into a 3-1 hole early. But after that, the Blueshirts rattled off six straight goals, including four in the second period that...

One player whose name I would have never predicted to be even possibly in the mix before the season is that of New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan.
But he’s a pending UFA July 1 and so far contract talks have not gone well at all, a source told ESPN.com Tuesday.
All of which led to some rumblings that the Rangers are exploring the trade...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
So there is another one of these coming up on Wednesday night, another chance for the Rangers to turn Yankee Stadium into the Bronx Blue against the Islanders the way they did against the Devils on Sunday afternoon.
And when Derek Stepan, who put the cherry on top of the Blueshirts’ 7-3 victory by converting a third-period penalty...
After sun reflecting off the ice delayed the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium, the New York Rangers and pinstriped goalie Henrik Lundqvist beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in snow and cold Sunday.
Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the New York Rangers used a four-goal second period to take the lead for good.
The Devils led 1-0 and 3-1 in the first, but New York...

After trading Michael Del Zotto to the Predators for Kevin Klein, many assumed the scouting of some teams would end. This included the Colorado Avalanche, who the Rangers have been scouting for quite some time. Adrian Dater noted that as recently as yesterday, the Rangers were still scouting the Avs. But with Klein on board, the Rangers...

When the clock strikes 3pm on Wednesday, March 5th signaling the time which any player acquired by a team can be eligible to participate in the postseason (also known as the trade deadline), it is all but certain Ryan Callahan will still be Captain of the New York Rangers Hockey Club. However, what happens between March 5th and July 1st is still anyone’s guess...

Former New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was honored by seemingly every MLB team during his final campaign this past year. But it may actually be an NHL event that houses the best Rivera tribute we’ve seen to date. Check out this ice sculpture, made by the world-famous Shintaro Okamoto, that was on display at Sunday’s NHL Stadium Classic matchup between the Rangers and Devils...
from Pierre LeBurn of ESPN,
One of the concerns the NHL privately had about holding a record six outdoor games is just how stretched its staff would be, logistically, in trying to pull it all off, most notably with back-to-back games this weekend in Los Angeles and New York, which is similar to the final two outdoor games in Chicago and Vancouver in early March.
The start of the Stadium Series game between the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Sunday has been delayed.
All it took was one look at the ice this morning at Yankee Stadium to see that the sun and ensuing glare was going to be a major factor in the game. The glare is so strong that in the name of safety, the NHL announced the game will have a delayed...
