Lines remain unchanged for tonight

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers will not change up their lines after a strong season opener in Chicago. Emerson Etem, Tanner Glass, and Dylan McIlrath will be the healthy scratches. Rick Nash–Derick Brassard–Mats Zuccarello Chris Kreider–Derek Stepan–Kevin Hayes Viktor Stalberg–Oscar Lindberg–J.T. Miller Dominic Moore–Jarret Stoll–Jesper Fast Ryan McDonagh–Dan Girardi...

New York Rangers: Five Bold Predictions for 2015-16

With the regular season beginning tonight as the New York Rangers face off against the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, I figured I’d share some bold predictions for the upcoming season. These predictions will (for the most part) be specifically focused on the Rangers should not be things that are expected. At the end I’ll also include some other predictions...

Hakstol's Happenings: Strong showings in preseason

Over the past few years, the Flyers haven't been the strongest preseason team -- after all, the preseason's a time to work out the offseason kinks and let younger players shine on a pro stage. But under Dave Hakstol, the Flyers (yes, despite Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers, in which the Flyers blew a 2-0 third-period lead) have looked like a strong team. Just...

Rangers erase two goal deficit, beat Flyers in overtime

The Rangers showed some moxy last night, erasing a 2-0 lead in the third period on goals from Dan Girardi and Chris Kreider to force overtime. Then it was the Keith Yandle show, as he forced a turnover, turned that into a penalty shot, then scored on the penalty shot to give the Rangers a […]

Kreider: I’d love to play for Torts at World Cup

Last week, when John Tortorella was named as Team USA’s coach for the World Cup, it immediately raised eyebrows across the NHL and especially here in New York. Given that Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh were the Ranger representatives for the Americans in the Olympics last season, it should be expected that the pair will return for the World Cup next year. But one Ranger, Chris...

Rangers' forward Chris Kreider is apparently very famous in the K-pop world

If New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider is not already a fan of K-pop, perhaps now is the time for him to expand his music horizons. K-pop group DIA recently published a video of a performance at the Gyeongju Hallyu Dream Concert on Sept. 20, and the seven-piece girl group all wore replica New York Rangers home jerseys for the performance. Six of the singers selected Kreider jerseys...

Four Thoughts: 9/19

1. There’s an obvious lack of trepidation with the retirement of Martin St.Louis, but that doesn’t mean his 52 points from last season doesn’t need to be replaced. The Rangers had the third most goals in the NHL season, but only three 20 goal scorers. Rick Nash, St.Louis and Chris Kreider. The Ranger young guns will be heavily expected to make up what they lost in St.Louis’...

Four Thoughts: 9/2

What’s turned from ‘likely 2015′ to ‘almost definitely 2016′ to now what he says “only time will tell,” according to a recent interview out of Russia. It also seems like his grasp of the...

Mailbag: Chris Kreider’s next contract

Just one question this week, but it’s an important one. As always, you can submit questions for the mailbag by using the form on the right. Tyler asks: Do you think Kreider’s next contract will be close to Gustav Nyquist deal? I’d say those two are pretty close comparables. That’s a difficult question to answer at the moment, […]
