Was John Tortorella Right In Benching Marian Gaborik During Game 2?

In Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, John Tortorella benched Marian Gaborik for a majority of the third period after his giveaway led to the Devils’ second goal of the game in the second period. Gaborik, who has struggled to consistently be an offensive threat this postseason, said after the game that he wasn’t [...]

Dubinsky skates; Rupp skates on third line

The big news out of practice today was that Brandon Dubinsky was on the ice in a non-contact jersey. This is great news for the Rangers, who have been missing Dubinsky since he went down with his lower body injury. Dubinsky has been sorely missed on the penalty kill, as evidenced last game when Brian Boyle took a penalty, and Derek Stepan was forced to kill the penalty. Of course...

Brandon Dubinsky Back On the Ice

As the New York Rangers prepare for tomorrow's Game 3 match-up against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center, they received good news this morning as winger Brandon Dubinsky skated for the very first time since injuring his right foot in Game 7 of the quarterfinals against the Ottawa Senators last month. Previously, Dubinsky was seen walking around the training facility...

Girardi & McDonagh Jelling On & Off the Ice

It's no secret that Dan Girardi & Ryan McDonagh are jelling on the ice, but Scott Burnside at ESPN.com takes a look at their relationship off it.Girardi explains it here..."Especially this year, he's (McDonagh) coming over to my house a little bit more, playing with my son and stuff like that. And I think that's kind of part of why we're doing well. We'...

An E-mail Interview with New York Rangers’ Radio Voice Kenny Albert

For someone that listened to New York Rangers’ game on the radio from the 1992-93 (I was 9 years old) season even up until now, the e-mail interview I conducted below was an absolute honor and pleasure for me to do. I was lucky enough to conduct this particular e-mail interview with the voice of the Blueshirts on the radio, Kenny Albert. Kenny was kind enough to take time out...

Clark Reason Rangers Changed Philosophy

Dave Lozo at NHL.com explains that during the 2004-05 work stoppage Gordie Clark, who had been promoted to head amateur scout of the Rangers, sat down with Glen Sather and vice president of personnel Don Maloney to chart a plan for the team's future..."I sat down and talked to Don and talked to Glen, and that was the time they changed their philosophy, and that's the...

Rangers Try to Make Stand on Home Ice

In the previous two playoff series this year, the Rangers have taken the opening game at Madison Square Garden, only to lose Game 2 and shift home ice to their opponent. They will be looking to avoid making it three straight when they take on the Devils in Game 2 tonight at the World's Most Famous Arena (via ESPN NY)...Ryan McDonagh..."It's a huge opportunity. We haven...

It’s a powerplay goal? Yup, it is

Ever since Jaromir Jagr departed the Rangers for greener pastures, the Rangers powerplay has struggled. The complaints were always the same, no matter the personnel. There weren’t enough shots, they were trying to be too fancy, and they weren’t moving their feet. A static powerplay is easy to defend. However, the story appears to be a bit different in the playoffs this season...

Rangers' Game 2 home loss trend continues

The New York Rangers' 1-1 knot through two games for the third consecutive playoff series can be viewed in one of two ways. Either the Blueshirts can be confident that they went on to win each of the first two rounds in seven games, or they can be discouraged by the notion that they simply are not learning from past mistakes. Rangers coach John Tortorella responded with a...

St. Croix, Oil Kings win WHL title, headed to Memorial Cup

When we last checked in on Rangers prospect Michael St. Croix, he was on his way to the WHL Finals. He and his Edmonton Oil Kings were to face the offensive juggernaut Portland Winterhawks in the Finals, and what an epic series it was. Seven games later, St. Croix and the Oil Kings were crowned the WHL champions, following a 4-1 victory over Portland in the final game. St. Croix...

Postgame: Devils Outwork Rangers to Tie Series at Two

It's just never easy.  For the third consecutive playoff round, the New York Rangers failed to win tonight's second game after winning Game 1, 3-0, over the Devils at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. Their lacking work ethic and inability to convert on scoring chances wiped away any momentum they may have earned in that series opening win, and now they will head...

John Tortorella didn’t say a thing in his game 2 press conference except that he’ll ‘keep it in the room’

Well, that isn’t exactly the full truth. He did say “no” a handful of times during his press conference after the Rangers 3-2 loss to the Devils. He also gave a couple contrite answers. And once he decided that he was done answering questions, he leaves the room. Seems like walking out of press conferences is becoming the thing to do during this season’s post season. No matter...

The Double-Edged Sword of John Tortorella

I don’t think anyone can question that John Tortorella is a top-notch coach. He changed the culture of a perennial last place team in Tampa and won the Stanley Cup in 2004. He came to the Rangers mid-season in 2009 and has transformed the Blueshirts into a hardworking blue collar defensive team. The kind of scrappy group that wins on guts and grit. The kind that New York loves...

New Jersey Devils Take Down New York Rangers, Even Eastern Conference Finals Series

NEW YORK -- David Clarkson's deflected goal 2:31 into the third period snapped a tie and lifted the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers that evened the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece on Wednesday night. Clarkson built off the momentum created by Ryan Carter's goal late in the second period that tied the game, 2-2. Ilya Kovalchuk had...
