Henrik Lundqvist has been making saves with his head for years, but tonight he took it to another level combining the header with an unbelievable sprawling save. After making the header on Mark Streit, John Tavares found P.A. Parenteau with a seemingly open net to shoot at, but Henrik Lundqvist battled across without his stick and robbed him for a save of the year candidate.
When Michael Del Zotto entered the New York Rangers scene in 2009, he entered with a vengeance. Del Zotto had 12 points (4-8-12) in the first month of the season, of which eight of those points (3-5-8) came with the man advantage. Finally, the Rangers had a successor to Brian Leetch. Tom Poti tried and failed, Michal Rozsival tried and failed, and countless others tried and failed...
When the New York Rangers selected J.T. Miller 15th overall
in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, many, including myself, were unsure of the quality
of that selection. Players with bigger
name recognition and reportedly higher upside were still on the board when the
Rangers took Miller. Thus far Miller is
doing everything he can to quell the doubters and reward the Rangers for...
There has been very little news on Marc Staal over the past few months, and even less that was good, but today is a glimmer of hope for the New York Rangers All-Star defenseman. Larry Brooks at the New York Post
reports that concussion specialist Dr. Robert
Cantu cleared Staal for light physical activity following his Tuesday examination. This is a positive step after Cantu...

The New York Rangers’ current six-game winning streak is the longest streak they’ve had since the 2009-2010 season, when they won seven in a row. And according to Larry Brooks, this is only the sixth time in the past 17 seasons that the Rangers have put together a six-game winning streak. It feels good. It [...]
Exactly one month ago, when the Rangers and Islanders met for the first time this season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Blueshirts were just returning to the U.S. after their lengthy European road trip that opened the season. New York (City) ended up losing that game by a score of 4-2 as they did not capitalize on prime opportunities to put the puck in the net. This time around, however...
Lots of excitement as the Dan Girardi All Star write-in campaign began yesterday with numerous tweets, Facebook messages and e-mails encouraging others to vote for the Rangers underappreciated defenseman or just letting other Blueshirts fans know that they had voted. Here's a pic reader John D. sends me of him doing his part...The campaign also received a nice plug from Greg...

The Rangers have not lost a game since recalling Sean Avery from the Connecticut Whale on October 31. Contrast the 4-0 record with him in the lineup against the 5-3-3 record with him off the ice, and it looks pretty good for the agitator. This continues...
Brad Richards is taking to life as a big star in New York quite well.
He's showing up in Page Six for squiring starlets around town on his nights off and leading the Rangers to wins when he's working, something that's known as Jetering around these parts. Well, it's not really known as Jetering, but it should be especially when the Rangers are as hot as they are right...

UPDATE (Nov. 15): Craig Custance of ESPN Insider has this quote from former New York Rangers goalie Mike Richter: “I’m a huge fan of this outdoor game. It gets back to the roots of our game. I’ll participate in whatever I can,” he said. “I grew up idolizing the Flyers. We had a couple wars [...]
Brad Richards scores go-ahead goal late in game for New York, on its longest winning streak since 2009.Brad Richards scores go-ahead goal late in game for New York, on its longest winning streak since 2009.
That is exactly what tonight is for the New York Rangers as they take on the New York Islanders in Long Island.
The Blueshirts are riding a 6-game winning streak while the New York Islanders are one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League. With that said, however, it is more than likely that the Islanders will be up for tonight’s tilt in front of their fans.
