Unpopular decisions needs to be made

Sometimes the best decision is the unpopular decision. The Rangers have begun to play some sloppy hockey this past few games, getting away with one in Tampa then losing against the one line Leafs before allowing Tampa to gain revenge Thursday. When the team trails in games, coach Tortorella often (as many coaches do) shortens his bench and rides his top guys as he presses to get...

Tampa Responds to Anisimov Celebration

Dave Lozo at NHL.com has Tampa Bay's response to Artem Anisimov's rifle celebration last night...Steve Stamkos..."It's just classless. I think I've seen him do that once or twice before, so no surprise there. We got the win. He'll know it's in the back of our minds the next time we see him. But we're not going to break focus because of that. We wanted...

Pregame: Rangers Seek Bounce-Back Effort Against Lightning

The reason behind Monday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs to break a five-game winning streak at the time was quite simple: the Rangers only showed up for half of the game. Well, I guess that isn't necessarily the proper way to put it. What I should say is that it took the Blueshirts 30 minutes to get going against Toronto, therefore leaving them with a shortage of time...

Coming off a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maplle Leafs, the New York Rangers will look to get back on track tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately, the team will be without Rangers’ defenseman Michael Sauer as he suffered a concussion when Leafs’ defenseman Dion Phaneuf flattened him on Monday night. With the team already missing Marc Staal...

Claude Giroux scored 2:27 into overtime for the Philadelphia Flyers, who overcame a three-goal, first-period deficit and beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Inconsistent - Flyers 3, Penguins 2

So what happened? Crosby or no Crosby - the Pens have had two good indications over the past two games that they have some work to do if they want to be considered one of the top teams in the East. The Pens started out well for the first few shifts, and then the wheels fell off of the wagon.  By the time the wagon was repaired, the Pens were down 3-0 and had a hole to...

Rangers-Sabres Preview

One of the keys to the New York Rangers' success this season has been their ability to avoid losing streaks. They'll have an opportunity to do that again Saturday night when they visit the Buffalo Sabres looking to prevent their first three-game skid since the opening week of the season. Since starting 0-1-2 - with two of those games in Europe - the Rangers (15-6-4) have...
