Metro Division Semis Game Three: Rangers at Penguins

The Rangers and Penguins are back at it tonight for Game Three of their series. The Penguins evened the series on Saturday night, and the story of that game was the Rangers inefficient powerplay. They went just one-for-seven in that game, and it presumably has cost them the series already. In all seriousness, the powerplay Read more → The post Metro Division Semis Game Three: Rangers...

Crosby re-emerges to defeat the New York Rangers

Though they entered their playoff series with the New York Rangers as serious underdogs, the Pittsburgh Penguins showed their star-power and resilience Saturday night, downing the Blueshirts 4-3 and evening the series at one. How did they accomplish this impressive feat? Well, for one thing, a disastrous second period doomed the Rangers, who allowed three […] The post Crosby re...

Don’t worry about the Rangers’ Kevin Hayes

Kevin Hayes has not hit the college rookie wall. Let’s clear that up straight away. To suggest that’s happened to Hayes – after just two subpar performances – would be a combination of lazy journalism and a kneejerk reaction. It’s just two games. Hayes has struggled in the opening round thus far, not producing offensively Read more → The post Don’t worry about the Rangers’...

Musings: Thoughts before the Rangers head to Pittsburgh

The Rangers debut their 2015 playoff selves in Pittsburgh tonight, in front of what should be an energized crowd. It’s well noted that the Rangers are horrendous in Game 2’s, and for some reason, it’s accepted as fact. I don’t know when any type of failure became acceptable, but I digress… The Rangers need to Read more → The post Musings: Thoughts before the Rangers head...

The New York Rangers remain consistently inconsistent

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two. In game one, the Rangers played with a lot more urgency and desperation, consistently outracing the Penguins to the puck, had a tighter forecheck, and a faster jump to secure the 2-1 victory. However, in game...

PLAYOFF GAMEDAY: Round 1, Game 2. Pens looking to even up the series.

Pittsburgh Penguins at New York Rangers 8:00 PM – NBC Madison Square Garden, New York, New York It’s kind of unheralded for there to be optimism surrounding the Penguins after a playoff loss, but hanging with the Rangers the way they did in Game 1 wasn’t expected either. Outside of a start that couldn’t have been worse and the parade of dumb penalties, the Pens actually...

Rangers skate past Penguins 2-1 in series opener

The New York Rangers couldn’t have asked for a better start to their quest for the Stanley Cup.

RECAP: Game One. Rangers lead series 1-0.

Dark cloud: The Pens are three losses away from the season being over. Silver lining of the dark cloud: The Penguins played their strongest game in about a month. It has been a weird season, so when we say we feel some positive things about a playoff loss, it doesn’t feel that strange. The Penguins had some fight in them, the Rangers interfered with the rest. But the Rangers...

Full Season Grades – Offense

Rick Nash (79 GP; 42G, 27A, 69 PTS; Midseason Grade: A+) Predictably cooled off, likely due to his unsustainable shooting percentage that hovered around 19-20% for awhile before finishing at 13.8%. Team would love for Nash to repeat that in the playoffs since that number is a head scratchingly low 3.6%. Needs a big postseason to silence his haters once and for all. Final Grade...
