It's Brad Richards Time

Free agent acquisition Brad Richards hasn't exactly had the season most of us expected him to. Do not translate that to mean he hasn't played well, though, because that hasn't been the case. After all, Richards has 21 goals and 50 points in 68 games played so far with the Rangers. I've always said that any player who can reach the 20-goal mark has a skill set in...

Video: Richards, Gaborik, Lundqvist Talk About OT Win Over Isles

… if Brad Richards is starting to heat up, wow, what a great time for it to happen. As I said before, he looked possessed tonight.  The Richards/Gaborik/Hagelin line could be something special if they start clicking now. Against the Isles they looked AMAZING. 

Torts Finally Listens to Me

For the regular readers of the blog, you know that I've been begging John Tortorella to put Brian Boyle's big body in front of the net on the power play for over a year now. Well last night he finally listened and here was the result... ...Torts has used Boyle on the crease during the power play in the past but has never stayed with it even when it was working...

Jan Levine: Game 68: NYR 4 NYI 3, OT, Richards Leads, Gabby Snipes, Carolina Tuesday

The Rangers (43-18-7) eked out a 4-3 OT win over the Islanders due to several factors, one of which not so surprising, and the other, probably shocking. The win enabled the Rangers to match their point total of last year. The not so surprising one was the play and production of Brad Richards. Yes, the two PPG were nice (more on that later) as well as the chemistry shown with Marian...

Callahan and Del Zotto Remain Out, Torts on Richards-Gaborik Chemistry

The New York Rangers held practice earlier today at their practice facility following last night's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders, and according to Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants, neither captain Ryan Callahan (bruised foot) nor defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated.

Rangers Enjoying Home Stand

Dave Lozo at NHL.com reports that the Rangers players are excited about their unusual seven game homestand.Brad Richards..."To be honest, we don't usually like playing that many in a row at home because sometimes it'll get monotonous. But I think the way the schedule worked out with the amount of travel at the start of the year and the three games we lost, it's...

Practice Notes: No Cally, Del Zotto; Zuccarello In Tomorrow; Richards/Gabby Chemistry

The Rangers report that neither Ryan Callahan (foot) nor Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated in this morning's practice....well that's not good.

Rangers Top Line Talks Rangers Top Line

Blueshirts United has these quotes from the Rangers new top line on their play last night...Brad Richards...We found each other tonight.
