… it was great to watch Henrik Lundqvist show the world on National Television what an amazing goaltender he is, the best in the NHL this season. That penalty shot was a HORRIBLE call, but the faith the Rangers fan base has in their goalie is amazing. He stoned Briere trying to go 5-hole on [...]
… these two were TREMENDOUS against the Florida Panthers. The Panthers are a very good team but the Rangers came out looking like a ball of energy in the 1st period and really dominated. They started to slow down in the second but luckily for them they have Henrik Lundqvist in goal who one again [...]
PHILADELPHIA – When Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh was whistled for closing his hand on the puck with 19.6 seconds remaining, it almost seemed storybook-esque for Flyers forward Danny Briere to tie the game at 3-3 via a penalty shot. But there was a certain someone in his way – a certain someone that has been in the Flyers’ way all season: Henrik Lundqvist.Lundqvist, who...
From the disrespectful attitude towards the Canadian national anthem, to the putrid Orange Flyers Winter Classic Jersey’s, to the terrible NBC coverage – there was a lot not to like today for Rangers fans. Luckily for Rangers fans there was a lot to like about the final score, the determination they showed in coming back to win and yeah, the moral victory in the jersey stakes...

The penalty shot was called when Ryan McDonagh dove into the crease to prevent a loose puck from...

So there were some fine goaltending performances last night, including Semyon Varlamov's 31 save performance against the Los Angeles Kings or Henrik Lundqvist's 34 save performance that helped the New York Rangers climb out of a 2-0 hole and turn it into a 3-2 win in yesterday's Winter Classic. The strangest thing is every road team but one nabbed...
When it comes to the Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the NHL’s best goaltender after every season, there is one netminder who has been up for it three times and has yet to win.
With the way this particular goaltender is playing right now, fate might have a different answer for him come near the end of June. Of course, I am talking about New York Rangers’ goaltender Henrik...
It was an exciting day in Philadelphia as the stage was set for the NHL’s 5th annual Winter Classic game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers. At stake for both teams were not only bragging rights, but 2 very important points in the standings that could potentially send either team to the top of the Eastern Conference. With all of the hype surrounding the game,...
The New York Rangers just seem to have the Philadelphia Flyers' number this season, and today on the grandest of NHL regular season stages would be no different, as the Broadway Blueshirts overcame a 2-0 late second period deficit to take a 3-2 victory in the fifth incarnation of the NHL Winter Classic. A familiar ending to the original event unfolded in the deciding moments...
