The Rise and Fall of Marian Gaborik

On July 1st 2009 Marian Gaborik signed for the New York Rangers after spending his entire NHL career with the Minnesota Wild. Gaborik a talented skater and a devastating finisher was plagued with injuries whilst with the Wild. Gaborik during the 2009-2010 season repaid the Rangers organisation by scoring 42 points and 86 over 76 [...]

Around the Farm: Thursday/Friday roundup

I had eye surgery on Friday, so I was unable to get the ATF yesterday. This post will cover all games played by the Rangers prospects on Thursday night and Friday night. Today’s (Saturday’s) games will be covered tomorrow, as per usual. The playoffs –or playoff type scenarios– have begun for almost all of the Rangers prospects. Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth have begun their...

Goal Breakdown: Rangers stink it up in Pittsburgh

Well, the Rangers got dominated in Pittsburgh today. We can’t even say it was unexpected. The Rangers were absolutely dominated in the first period to the tune of a -24 Corsi (33 shot attempts for Pittsburgh, 9 for the Rangers). It was a miracle that the Rangers were only down a goal in the first, mostly due to the play of Henrik Lundqvist. That said, the entire team –including...

Torts Has Not Lost the Room

One comment I have seen in excess this past weekend is that the Rangers players have tuned John Tortorella out. That his brash style has worn thin on the Blueshirts and he's lost the room. Well, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record, who is with the team and in the locker room on an almost daily basis, disagrees... "I still do not see or believe that Tortorella...

Rangers Talked Gaborik Trade With Vancouver; Interested in Perry?

During a segment on Hockey Night In Canada's "Hot Stove Tonight," Elliotte Friedman says that the Rangers might have discussed a potential trade for Marian Gaborik with the Vancouver Canucks, but it wasn't a good match. Friedman adds that as part of his limited no trade clause Gaborik has given the Rangers 10 teams he cannot be traded to. Here's the...

Rangers’ Struggle Continues As Penguins Cruise To Eighth Straight Win

After dropping the first two meetings on home ice, the New York Rangers tried their luck on the road in Pittsburgh for a matinee affair with the division leading Penguins.  Pittsburgh is currently riding a seven game winning streak and is tied with the Montreal Canadiens for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with 40 [...]

It’s about execution, not coaching

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images The Rangers succeeded last year because they executed. They followed the system, they executed and they won. Many are looking at the coaching staff for the three game slide, but in reality it’s about execution from the players. It’s been widely known that coach Tortorella uses a 2-1-2 forecheck, which is not a defensive system. It’s a bit of a misnomer...

Game Preview: New York Rangers vs Carolina Hurricanes

TONIGHT’S GAME The Rangers will face-off against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight at Madison Square Garden (7:00 p.m. — TV: MSG Network; Radio: ESPN 98.7), in the first game of a back-to-back set. The Blueshirts currently rank fourth in the Atlantic Division standings, and rank 10th in the Eastern Conference, with a record of 13-12-2 (28 [...]

Something Doesn’t Add Up

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It doesn’t compute that Marian Gaborik can’t thrive playing under Tortorella’s defense-oriented, hard-on-the-puck philosophy; not when the winger scored 40 or more goals in two of his first three seasons playing for this coach. But it also does not compute that Tortorella would have shifted Gaborik, who had spent his entire career...

Connecticut Whale 3, Springfield Falcons 2

By Wil Goldsholl Hartford, CT, March 17, 2013 - In the Connecticut Whale locker room on Saturday night, Jason Missiaen’s goaltending partner, Cam Talbot, gave a shout in passing, “There ya go, Mish! Big as a house!” The mild-mannered, six-foot-eight goaltender gave pause to flash a grin before continuing to praise his defense for help with rebounds and screens. The Chatham...

Rangers 0, Penguins 3

The Rangers fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins today by the score of 3-0. For a box score, click here. Observations: Little to no positives to take away from today's game... looked like a typical Rangers-Pens game to me.  If not for Hank, the Rangers are probably looking at a 4-0 deficit after one and possibly Glen Sather working the phones in a room somewhere, if...

Hurricanes-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers aren't pointing fingers anywhere but at themselves for their slump, which has dropped them out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. They'll attempt to get back on track Monday night by earning a sixth straight victory over a Carolina Hurricanes team trying to end its own skid that has it fighting to reclaim the Southeast Division's top spot...

Connecticut Whale 3, Manchester Monarchs 0

By Wil Goldsholl Hartford, CT, March 16, 2013 - Six days’ rest proved key for the Connecticut Whale, as they picked up a critical 3-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs on Saturday night in Hartford. Manchester, sitting in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference prior to the game, has not bested the Whale, who moved into a tie for seventh with the win, at the XL Center this...
