Brad Richards has enjoyed a solid start to what could be considered a comeback year. He struggled during the lockout shortened season, and in the playoffs, which led to many fans calling for the Rangers to amnesty him, voiding the rest of his contract. I was one of the people vowing for Richards, left and […]
BEST OF MAXIM
After a run that saw the Rangers score just nine goals in seven games, Alain Vigneault has shaken up his lines (per Pat Leonard). The only line that remains intact is the Kreider-Stepan-Zuccarello line:
Carl Hagelin-Brad Richards-Rick Nash
Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello
Benoit Pouliot-Derick Brassard-Ryan Callahan
Brian Boyle-Dominic Moore-Derek Dorsett
In reality this...
At 5’7, you might not notice Mats Zuccarello walking down Broadway. But on the ice, the diminutive forward sticks out like a dinghy at a Yacht Club.
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...
November 24th, 1993: Ottawa Civic Centre, Ottawa, Ontario: On the day before Thanksgiving the Rangers took their 13 game unbeaten streak (11-0-2) to the capital of Canada looking for an early feast against a struggling Senators team. Ottawa came in with a record of 5-12-2 having dropped six of their last seven, including four […]
The Islanders are in trouble on defense -- bigger trouble now that Thomas Hickey, one of the few remaining reliable defensemen, is likely out.
The Rangers need to make a change and want Michael Del Zotto to be the one moving out.
Here is a not-so-modest, but sensible, proposal: A real trade between the Isles and Rangers.
Garth Snow has been working the phones to find a defenseman...
The Hartford Wolf Pack made a move today to hopefully address some of their goaltending isues, recalled Jeff Malcolm from the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors and demoting Scott Stajcer to the ECHL. Malcolm has been one of the top goalies in the ECHL, posting a 1.96 GAA and a .940 SV%. Meanwhile, Stajcer has been struggling with Hartford, putting up a 2.27 GAA and a .904 SV%.
Marty St. Louis appreciation night saw St. Louis squarely in the spotlight.
Like so many times before, with so many eyes watching him, he found a way to deliver.
After brushing aside an emotional pregame ceremony to honor St. Louis for appearing in 1,000 career games, the captain promptly went out and scored a pair of goals and added an assist to help lift the Tampa Bay Lightning...
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...
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...
In a game that was originally supposed to feature two of the league’s best featured two of the league’s newest.
Instead of Pekka Rinne and Henrik Lundqvist, Saturday night’s contest at Bridgestone Arena saw rookie goaltenders Marek Mazanec and Cam Talbot between the pipes for the Nashville Predators and New York Rangers, respectively.
Mazanec stopped an impressive 32 of 34...
Hey, remember those rumours that Ottawa was kicking the tires on New York Rangers defenceman Michael Del Zotto?
No match between Sens and NYR on Del Zotto. Told Ott made Gryba, Greening and Condra available. Fit wasn't right for NYR.

And hey, why wouldn't the Rangers want to move Del Zotto for a package...
