Elliotte Friedman at CBC Sports speculates that Wojtek Wolski's time with the Rangers might be over..."Can't help but look at Wojtek Wolski's $3.8 million cap hit and wonder if the Rangers will do some maneuvering there too, should it be necessary. Doesn't look like he's a fit right now."...doubt the Rangers will be able to find a team willing to take on Wolski's cap hit, so a trip to visit former teammates Sean Avery and Erik Christensen down in Hartford may be in the cards for the Rangers winger. Rangers could also work out a re-entry waivers deal with another team similar to what they did with Dallas to bring back Avery....if all else fails, they could just put him back in the tub....in all seriousness, in a year full of successes Wolski has been a huge disappointment. After seeing his commitment to making himself better this past summer I was full expecting an impact season. Man, was I wrong. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or ...

… Ryan Callahan said what I was thinking, this isn’t your typical Rangers from the last few seasons. One loss does not snowball out of control and lead to long losing streaks. They have bounced back very quickly from a loss to take control of the next game. If the Rangers keep playing this way, [...]
… It’s always nice when the owner has faith in you. And it seems this year James Dolan has that faith. I don’t believe in “being jinxed” like most fans do. I believe the Rangers will keep playing the way they have been and Tortorella will do anything he possibly can to keep the ship [...]

Patrick Hoffman of PowerScout Hockey says today “believe it or not, this year’s Rangers’ hockey club might have their best chance to win a Cup since 1994.” And I have to say I totally agree with my good friend. The “King” is 19-9-4 with a 1.95 goals against average, a .935 save percentage and 3 [...]
Tuesday's contest was expected to be a contest between a pair of mirror images in the Rangers and Predators. While that was true, the Rangers mixed some timely offense and luck with stifling defense and stellar goaltending by Henrik Lundqvist, who earned his fourth shutout of the season and 20th in his career, to beat Nashville 3-0. Every time the Blueshirts have had to respond...

This, as expected, was a relatively boring game. The Predators ran their 1-2-2/1-4 trap to perfection, but the Rangers were able to adjust to a dump and chase and generate some goals off board play. In the end, it was a grind it out game that had the Rangers emerge victorious, with another shutout for Henrik Lundqvist. This was a very important win for the Rangers who had lost two...
