Multiple reports indicate that Neil will not have a hearing with Shanahan...

Replacing Boyle in the lineup

When Chris Neil took out Brian Boyle with a questionable hit on Saturday night, he took out the Rangers most effective forward. He took out their leading scorer, top defensive forward, and top penalty killer in this series. He took out the only player that has managed to get under the skin of the Senators. It’s a big blow to the Rangers, and not a player easily replaced. The best...

Chris Neil Not Suspended and Alfie Set to Return?

Much to the chagrin of the insufferable John Tortorella, Chris Neil will not face any supplementary discipline for his hit to New York Rangers forward Brian Boyle. In his post-game press conference last night, Torts drew parallels between Neil's hit and the Raffi Torres hit on Marian Hossa; even going so far as to say that Boyle had sustained a concussion and that the NHL has...

Even strength play needs to get better

The Rangers made it through the regular season by dominating teams at even strength.

But now, four games into the series with Ottawa, the Senators have managed to expose the Rangers at even strength. The last even strength goal: Brian Boyle’s goal in the third period...

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:
