PLAYERS: Stu Bickel
TEAMS: New York Rangers
No, I’m not talking about the Rangers and their first place standing. I’m talking about Stu Bickel. You must be thinking, “huh? Surely Chelley has fallen off her rocker and spilled her coffee…”. I can assure you, I am still in my rocker with my coffee mug firmly in hand. In the Rangers’ loss in [...]

Jaromir Jagr Served as Rangers Captain Between Mark Messier and Chris Drury

Ryan Callahan serves as the Rangers' captain nowadays, and by donning the "C," he joins a very elite group. Prior to Callahan, it was Chris Drury who held the role, starting in 2008. Drury decided to hang up the skates, though, which paved the way for the 26-year-old Callahan to take over. Perhaps the most recognizable captain in Rangers history is Mark Messier, who...

Rangers C Richards misses practice

Brad Richards did not practice on Friday, but New York Rangers coach John Tortorella insisted that the center will "be fine" for Saturday's tilt against the Boston Bruins. Richards was leveled by Pittsburgh Penguins agitator Matt Cooke during Thursday's 4-1 loss and appeared to land on his back. While no tripping penalty was called, the play was reviewed by the...

Video: Rangers React To James Dolan’s Comments

… It’s always nice when the owner has faith in you. And it seems this year James Dolan has that faith. I don’t believe in “being jinxed” like most fans do. I believe the Rangers will keep playing the way they have been and Tortorella will do anything he possibly can to keep the ship [...]

Costly Mistakes – Penguins @ Rangers Post Game Thoughts…

I don’t think the score was a far characterization of how this game was played. To be totally frank, I thought for the bulk of this game the Rangers played the Pens fairly evenly. I don’t think this was the case of 1 team blowing the doors off the other. The score was, after all, tied going into the 3rd period. The difference in this game, to me, was the Rangers were unable...

Musings – Why The Hate On Dolan?

It’s been a while since I’ve penned one of the musings posts. Generally these are done by Chris, and Suit fills in when he can’t. But today it’s my turn. Enjoy. I don’t get all this hate of James Dolan saying the Rangers are nearly contenders for the Cup. It’s not like he guaranteed anything, he just said what we all know: The Rangers are a very good team, and appear...

A Night For Bad News

Friday night was more about bad news than it was about outstanding performances for both New York Ranger and New York Islanders prospects. The first bit of bad news was announced before anybody even stepped on the ice as each team had bad news about first-round pick. The New York Rangers saw their 2010 first-round pick Dylan McIlrath be suspended for eight games as a result of...

Jan Levine: Game 44: NYR 3 NAS 0, Response Given, Dolan, Really, C'mon Man

Tuesday's contest was expected to be a contest between a pair of mirror images in the Rangers and Predators. While that was true, the Rangers mixed some timely offense and luck with stifling defense and stellar goaltending by Henrik Lundqvist, who earned his fourth shutout of the season and 20th in his career, to beat Nashville 3-0. Every time the Blueshirts have had to respond...

Gaborik's second lifts Rangers by Bs

Marian Gaborik scored twice, the second on a third-try backhander with 3.6 seconds left in overtime, and the New York Rangers beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Saturday in a matchup of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference.

Rangers strike first; B’s answer

Just after the Rangers killed off their third power-play of the game, they scored the first goal of the game. Brandon Prust broke out on fed Ryan Callahan and then supported the captain on a 2-on-1. From the left wing, Callahan kept it himself and beat ...

Andrew Ference of Bruins ejected after charging Rangers’ Ryan McDonagh in OT (Video)

The New York Rangers won their Eastern Conference showdown Saturday with the Boston Bruins on a Marian Gaborik power-play goal with 3.6 seconds remaining in overtime. Why did they have a power play? Because Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference put a forearm into the numbers of Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh's sweater, sending him face-first into the end boards and sending Ference...

Gaborik lifts Blueshirts to OT win in Beantown

The Rangers stole two points from the Stanley Cup champion Bruins Saturday afternoon, and simultaneously exorcised their power play demons when Marian Gaborik scored with 3.6 seconds remaining for a 3-2 overtime win.
