Rangers on the road; would It matter?

Do the media and Box office have too much influence over the NHL? Led by Rick Carpiniello at his Rangers Report blog, rumours are beginning to circulate that the Rangers are considering (somewhat) giving up home ice advantage due to contractual commitments (concerts) at the Garden, the condensed NBA season schedule and of course, NBC’s television scheduling demands. If true,...

Richards Reason for Chemistry With Gaborik

John Tortorella tells Dave Lozo at NHL.com that Brad Richards deserves most of the credit for his late season chemistry with Marian Gaborik..."I think a lot of it has to do with Brad Richards' game. I think Gabby is getting used to him a little where Gabby needs to give him the puck and not always have the puck. Then you just gain some confidence. I think their puck movement...

Bruins Plan to Make Statement Against New York Rangers on Sunday

The New York Rangers have been the class of the NHL and the Eastern Conference for much of the season, but the Bruins are looking to change that Sunday night when they visit Madison Square Garden for a late-season tilt with their red, white and blue foes. While the Rangers and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist have been gathering the accolades, Boston will let their play do the talking...

Pregame: Rangers Pursue Season Sweep of Bruins

The New York Rangers enter the month of April with a 50-21-7 record on the year and just four games remaining on the regular season schedule. They've clinched a spot in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, they've clinched home ice in those playoffs, and now their only task left on the to-do list is to clinch first overall in the Eastern Conference entering the postseason.

Torts: 50 Wins Doesn't Mean Squat

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record has this quote from John Tortorella on the Rangers reaching 50 wins last night..."It doesn't mean squat. It means absolutely nothing. It's about how we're playing as we go through these next four games. It's about our game going into the playoffs. You get measured as a player, you get measured as a team by what you do in the...

New York Rangers Eye The Prize

New York Rangers’ coach, John Tortorella, has reiterated that he has no interest in the daily on-goings within the Eastern Conference playoff race, and has been prudent in stressing to the media, and, more importantly, to his players, that the Rangers are only concerning themselves with their tasks at hand. As a writer I am [...]

Bruins top Rangers, sweep NY weekend

When you are already the defending Stanley Cup champions, it takes a whole lot more than a division title to really get the party started. Tim Thomas survived a third-period barrage from the New York Rangers, and Boston held on for a 2-1 victory on Sunday night that clinched the Northeast Division for the Bruins. It also kept the Rangers from wrapping up the No. 1 seed in the Eastern...

Gaborik Scores #40

Sunday NYR 1 NYI 1

Got to admit it has been very interesting the last few days watching New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects going head to head in the OHL playoffs. Neither team has been able to get any real advantage and maybe that is a good thing for now. Sunday was JT Miller's (NYR 2011 1st) turn to come up big and he did scoring the series winning goal in overtime to send his...

Rangers-Flyers Preview

Despite a loss in their last game, the New York Rangers need just one point to clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Completing their first season sweep of the archrival Philadelphia Flyers in 40 years would certainly be an impressive way to achieve that goal. The Rangers will try again to secure their first No. 1 seed since 1993-94 on Tuesday night as they face a Flyers...
