Mats Zuccarello is playing a key role now for the New York Rangers. The average NHL player is just over 6’1, with legs the size of tree trunks and shoulders you could build a city on. So it’s impossible not to notice – and root...

Benoit Pouliot vs. Taylor Pyatt vs. J.T. Miller

Matt Slocum/AP As the season has progressed the biggest concern has been the play of some of the veterans, specifically Benoit Pouliot and Taylor Pyatt (when healthy), and why a player like J.T. Miller isn’t in the lineup instead. None of the three have been consistent enough to warrant a full time spot on the roster, and it can be argued that some have been bad enough to get Prucha’d...

Pyatt rejoins team, return still undecided

Per Pat Leonard, injured winger Taylor Pyatt has rejoined the team in Tampa Bay. Pyatt, who was concussed after taking a head shot from Columbus Blue Jackets defender Fedor Tyutin, has not played since that game in Columbus on November 7. Pyatt has been the target of a lot of criticism from the fans for his play this season, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that everyone...

Muir: Rangers interested in Vernon Fiddler?

Per Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated, the Rangers may have interested in Dallas Stars center Vernon Fiddler. Now we need to take this with a grain of salt, because despite the fact this is in SI, Muir gets some basic facts wrong. Yes, Connor Allen and Dylan McIlrath are intriguing prospects, but neither are ready to play a role on a team built to win a Cup. Also, he mentions Michael...

It was The Coach in Black who managed to quiet down the Music City on a Saturday night. With Rangers coach Alain Vigneault sporting what he called his “Johnny Cash Suit,” his team went out and absolutely shutdown the Predators, earning a 2-0 win at Bridgestone Arena that was diminished to little more than whispers and echoes. “Our guys were focused and ready right from the...

Brooks: NHL’s new playoff math is advantageous to the middle of the pack

The New York Post's Larry Brooks seems to have something in common with the league's general managers: a bit of sticker shock regarding the NHL's "new" divisional playoff format's quirks: [As] it stood following Friday night’s games, the hybrid divisional format would guarantee either the team with the East’s seventh- or eighth-best record advances...

Preds muster just 17 shots, lose to Rangers
