John Tortorella is a pretty intense guy. On Sunday, during a game against the Bruins, the Rangers head coach channeled his inner Rob Gronkowski and unleashed an emphatic spike on the bench. Tortorella's Rangers were assessed a delay of game penalty in the third period after the puck was cleared out of play by New York. The puck landed in the Rangers' bench area, which typically...

The current roster is littered with Rangers...

Postgame: Rangers' Effort Pathetic in Loss to Devils

The New York Rangers have not disappointed often this season, but what we saw on this night against a rival in the New Jersey Devils was more than just disappointing.

Barry Schwartz, the former chairman of the New York Racing Association and a lifelong Rangers fan, owns or has owned horses named Henrik...
