I had some expectations for this Rangers team this season. It’s a team that made the playoffs last year and essentially replaced the aging injury riddled former captain Chris Drury with superstar center Brad Richards. Henrik Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world, our young home-grown guys like Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky were [...]

Garden Of Dreams Auctions

Got this in my email regarding Garden of Dreams auctions. These are all for a great cause: Meet Brad Richards After Watching Rangers Vs. Phoenix At The Garden •The last time Tortorella and Brad Richards teamed up, they won the 2004 Stanley Cup for Tampa, so there’s no question that their reunion in New York is stirring up some conversation. One lucky fan and a friend will get to...

Balanced scoring huge asset for Stars

When the Dallas Stars let All-Star center Brad Richards leave the team via free agency over the summer, many wondered how the club would replace his point production in this, the first season under new head coach Glen Gulutzan. Almost from the moment Gully was hired to coach this team back in June, the answer was simple-scoring by committee. While there were a number of skeptics...

Pregame: Rangers Hope to End Sens' Streak, Erase Thursday's Disaster

The Rangers' effort in their 2011-12 home opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday was disgraceful. Actually, maybe I am wrong in using the word "effort" to describe what happened that night because there simply was no effort beyond the first period of play. From top to bottom, everything with the Blueshirts' game was ugly, even the goaltending, which...

NHL roundup: Ryan Callahan leads Rangers by Sharks

Ryan Callahan scored twice in New York's three-goal second period, and the Rangers shook off a blown lead and raced past the surging San Jose Sharks, 5-2, on Monday night.

(10-31) 18:40 PDT New York (AP) -- Ryan Callahan scored twice in New York's three-goal second period, and New York shook of a blown lead and raced past the surging San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Monday night. The Rangers (4-3-3)...

Rangers play their game, rout Sharks

NEW YORK (AP) - Ryan Callahan scored twice in New York's three-goal second period, and New York shook of a blown lead and raced past the surging San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Monday night. The Rangers (4-3-3) led 2-0 in the first period but squandered...

Are the Rangers in Trouble?

The answer to that question is a resounding no. At 3-3-3, the New York Rangers certainly have not played their best in this young season and at the same time, have yet to click on all levels. That is the good thing. The bad thing is that the way has played in their last two games against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, both losses at Madison Square Garden. Their play...

Ryan leads the way past San Jose

The Rangers gave themselves a blueprint for how to hold a lead in their first home victory of the young season: Get everyone involved. Four Blueshirts registered at least two points, led by captain Ryan Callahan (two goals, one assist), as the Rangers (4-3-3) snapped a two-game skid with a 5-2 win over San Jose (6-4-0) at the Garden. In the process, they ended a five-game winning...

On ice: Rangers blow it, fall in shootout

John Tortorella may be impatient over Brad Richards’ lack of chemistry with Marian Gaborik, but as Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators demonstrated, the Rangers have bigger problems.

Tortorella pre-game

First, he did not give out his lineup, or his lines, saying he wasn’t sure. (Andrew Gross loves when he says that, LOL). But he said it will probably be the same lineup as the home opener. He did say that Mike Rupp (knee) remains out. I asked him a few questions about the possible breaking-up of Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik—at practice yesterday Gaborik played with Erik...

Rangers yet to play 60 tough minutes

Nine-nine-nine. No, that’s neither endorsement of a campaign platform nor recitation of the Rangers number worn by Andy Bathgate, Adam Graves and Reggie Fleming. Instead it is the amount of games Brandon Dubinsky, Derek Stepan and Artem Anisimov all have gone without scoring. Nine for Dubinsky, nine for Stepan...
