The New York Rangers had a
number of questions that needed to be answered coming into the season, but few
if any wondered about Ryan Callahan. Callahan
was named the 26th captain of the franchise because of his leadership, but also
in part because his play epitomizes the identity the team strives to have. The Rangers have failed to establish that
same identity as last season or the same style of play and to see why you have
to look no further than the play of Callahan himself.
In the Rangers opener against
the Kings Callahan played his type of game and had a huge impact recording an
important goal to help spark a lifeless team and recording a tremendous 11
shots on goal. Since then his game has
seemingly declined and his impact has been non-existent in the outcome of
games, which is not what the Rangers need from his both as their captain and as
a player who was given a new contract based on last year’s production. The questio...

Looking for their third straight win the New York Rangers are tinkering with their lineup inserting Brendan Bell on defense and scratching Jeff Woywitka. Replacing Woywitka is not a big surprise as he struggled against Calgary, especially in the third period giving up multiple chances and taking a penalty with just 2:44 left in regulation.
One change the Rangers are not making...
According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, New York Rangers defensemen Marc Staal was to being skating this week and it was leaked out by a few members of the media and Joe Micheletti during a Rangers broadcast that the team would update and announce this news. Unfortunately, a day later came and [...]
One win is nothing to get excited about, especially when it took four games to get, but finally earning a tally in the "W" column was certainly a major relief for the New York Rangers on Tuesday. And not only was it a win, but it was a 4-0 shutout of the defending Western Conference Champion Vancouver Canucks. The Rangers, in any way possible, needed some sort of encouragement...

Well 2-1-2 looks a whole lot better than 0-1-2, doesn't it? With tonight's 3-2 overtime win over the Calgary Flames, the Rangers have now won back-to-back games and are undefeated midway through their western Canada road trip. After a shaky start, the Blueshirts are on their way to erasing what was a not-so-great effort in the first three games of the season with continuous...

The Rangers ended their power-play scoring drought Thursday night and got an improbable last second victory, when Ryan McDonagh scored with 1.8 seconds left in overtime to lift the Blueshirts, 3-2, over the Flames. Brandon Dubinsky dropped the puck to Dan Girardi at the right point, who hit a slap shot into the boards behind the net and McDonagh slid into the left circle and buried...
Ryan McDonagh's putback after a Dan Girardi prayer caromed behind the net gave the Rangers a 3-2 win in overtime. Dany Heatley's bad-angle flick off of Nikolai Khabibulin's chest at the end of regulation salvaged a point for Minnesota, and eventually a second one with a shootout win. Both goals went in with half a second left on the...
When I was a kid, the New York Rangers were strictly the "B" list. Despite being an original 6 team, when my family tuned in HNIC if the Rangers were on things would eventually end up at the kitchen table (beer, smokes, cards, laughter). The television--a black and white--would be shoved over in the corner when I'd watch with my aunt Shannon and my brother (or by myself...
