Found November 14, 2011 on Ranger Nation:
The New York Rangers’ current six-game winning streak is the longest streak they’ve had since the 2009-2010 season, when they won seven in a row.

Is Olivia Munn the NY Rangers' secret weapon?

As you all well know, the New York Rangers are on a recent 6-0 run and there is a specific reason the team is feeling so hot; alternate captain Brad Richards reportedly started dating uber-hottie Olivia Munn over the last few weeks. In his last 7 games, Richards has netted 7 points, so scoring off the ice seems to help his performance ON the ice too. I could care less about the Rangers...

Video: Lundqvist Makes Header Save, Then Sprawls To Rob Parenteau

When Stralman Plays Should Rangers Sit Woywitka or Eminger?

Given the New York Rangers current six game winning streak it is hard to see coach John Tortorella changing anything in terms of the lineup, but shortly there will be a decision to make on defense. Anton Stralman was signed to play and add to the offense from the blue line and while he is still being worked into the system his shot is coming soon. The question is whether...

Lesson Learned - Rangers @ Islanders (Sorta?) Post Game Thoughts…

That’s gotta be the first time i’ve ever seriously thought the Rangers have had more fans than the actual home team. Not just a few more fans, but far and away more fans. It honestly sounded louder than at the Garden in favor of the Rangers, which is just mind boggling to the nth degree. The Rangers should have learned their lesson from the previous time they played...

Rangers – Islanders Post Game Thoughts

Rangers extend win streak

This was a case of the big-time player making the big-time play. This was a case of Page Six Brad Richards stepping up when the Rangers required it. For it was Richards who overpowered Evgeni Nabokov with a left-circle slap shot at 15:05 of the third to break a...

Focus Is Rangers Biggest Obstacle To Maintaining Win Streak Against Islanders

The New York Rangers look to extend their winning streak to seven tonight as they head to Long Island tonight to take on the rival Islanders.  On paper it seems like an easy task as the Rangers are now 9-3-3 while the Islanders are 1-6-3 following their 3-1 start.  As Rangers fans know all too well, games in this rivalry don’t turn out how paper would suggest they should...
