Special Start to Preseason for the Rangers

Among the myriad of issues that derailed the New York Rangers season a year ago, perhaps none was more destructive than the one-two punch of poor special teams plays on both the power play and penalty killing units.

Can Chris Kreider be a Consistent Force for the New York Rangers?

This fall, New York Rangers’ left wing Chris Kreider will certainly have high expectations placed on him. But this is nothing new for the 25-year-old Massachusetts native. Last season, Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault stated that Kreider should be a 30 goal scorer.
