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...
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...

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...
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.
It has been a long time since a Rangers-Islanders game had a large bearing on the playoff race for both teams this late in the season. Rangers-Islanders games are always intense and Saturday night’s game at Nassau Coliseum did not disappoint. Evgeni Nabokov and Henrik Lundqvist were the stars of the show for over sixty minutes, neither [...]
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.

As the shortened regular season heads towards its conclusion, playoff hopefuls need every point they can get. Tonight, in Philadelphia, the Rangers suffered a costly 4-2 loss at the hands of the Flyers. For a full box score of the game, check out Yahoo! Sports.
- Disappointing would be the best way to describe this loss. The Rangers just were not good enough to win this hockey...
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...
