Emergence of Derek Stepan Could Be Key for Rangers

Prior to Monday's Game 6 in Ottawa, Rangers forward Derek Stepan had zero points in five playoff games this season.

Quickly he saw a decrease in ice time from head coach John Tortorella, which is obviously going to be the consequence when you...

Kreider Not Easily Fazed

During his conference call yesterday, John Tortorella gave this comment on his impressions of Chris Kreider's performance up until this point (via Bergen Record)..."The thing that impressed me the most about him right now in just a couple of days being with him is forget what's on the ice, it's how he's handled the situation. I'm sure there's a letdown...

Surprise, Henrik Lundqvist Named Vezina Finalist

To the surprise of no one (hence the sarcastic title), the National Hockey League has announced that New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has been named a finalist for the 2011-12 Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the League's best goaltender during the regular season.

Bourque Takes it to a New Level

By Bob Crawford That the Connecticut Whale swept division-champion Bridgeport, a team that had played better than .700 hockey since the turn of the New Year, was surprising enough.  That they did it without their regular-season scoring leader, Kris Newbury, registering a point, and with second-leading scorer Jonathan Audy-Marchessault being held to one goal, borders on amazing...

Morning Skate Notes: No Boyle or Eminger; Zucc Update; Another Sens Debut

We don't want this season to end. If we play...

Video- Lundqvist’s Remarks Post-Game

Henrik Lundqvist was upset with the controversial late goal by the Senators last night and spoke about it post-game. I don’t know about you, but my feelings are the Rangers won the game, brush the goal off and move on. Instead, Lundqvist went in the opposite direction.

When you are hot then you are Edmonton

Got to give credit where credit is due in the battle of New York Ranger prospects as while Edmonton was good; I don't think anyone expected them to be good. I know I had Moose Jaw winning in 7 games and never dreamed that the Oil Kings in their first conference final would play this well. Michael St. Croix (NYR 2011 4th) had a goal as well as an assist to help lead his...

Believe

It's the slogan the New York Rangers have used throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs. It's on the t-shirts, it's on Twitter, it's plastered on the walls of Madison Square Garden and it's printed on the rally towels.  "Believe" One word with such a vast meaning. One word that contains an unlimited amount of power. But one word that defines the 2011...

About fifteen minutes into Game 6 between the New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators, it became more of a WWE match than a hockey game. Somehow, in the middle of his tussle with Rangers’ forward Brandon Prust, Chris Neil of the Senators signals the crowd to “get loud” while still trying to fight Prust. Check it out:

New Wrinkle Added to the Senators vs Rangers Rivalry

For their next installment in their popular gaming franchise, EA Sports has opted to let fans ultimately decide which NHL player they want to adorn the cover of NHL 13.
