Rangers 2, New Jersey 1

The New York Rangers (30-18-5) defeated the New Jersey Devils (26-21-7) by the score of 2-1. For a box score, click here. For a game that was pretty well in control for 60 minutes and they STILL find a way to make it adventurous late.  I was in attendance at MSG for the first time this year. A lot more Devils fans than I expected with the threat of weather moving in. Still the...

Four Thoughts: 2/8

1. The trade deadline is exactly 3 weeks away and we’re no closer to getting any thing close to a sniff as to what the Rangers plans are moving forward. Quite frankly, the 10 games the Rangers still have to play before the 29th should not be a barometer for Jeff Gorton as it should by now, very clear to the front office that they have a major issue with some of their defensemen...

New York Rangers: A bruise for the ages

The New York Rangers will return from the All-Star break without Rick Nash, again. He’s been out since sustaining an injury in the game against Carolina in which he went awkwardly into the boards, left the ice, and came back. Then, he was put on the penalty kill for some reason, where he blocked a shot and hurt himself even more. It’s apparently just a bad bone bruise and a CT...

Midseason Grades: Defense Part 2

We’re just past the halfway point in the NHL season and it’s time once again to get mad at my meaningless letter grades and go over the team’s performance this season piece by piece. Today, we’ll continue on with the defensemen. You can find Part 1 here. Dan Boyle – (5G, 9A, 14 PTS) Admitted earlier this year that this season might be his last. Super streaky. 9 of his 14...

Rangers 4, Carolina 1

The New York Rangers (26-16-5) defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (21-20-8) by a score of 4-1. For a box score, click here. The Rangers have found themselves behind in recent games comning out of the gate, so it was good that they were able to get the first tally. Nice play by the Captain to pick off an ill-advised pass by Jaccob Slavin, who the Rangers picked on a bit, and beat Lack...

It is time to rotate Boyle, Girardi, and McIlrath

The Rangers have a right-defense problem. Kevin Klein is solid and by far the best defenseman on that side. Aside from him, the Rangers aren’t really sure what they are getting on a nightly basis from Dan Boyle, Dan Girardi, and Dylan McIlrath. The cause of inconsistency varies by player, but inconsistency is still inconsistency. […] The post It is time to rotate Boyle, Girardi...

Girardi not on. — Larry Brooks (@NYP_Brooksie) December 16, 2015 And now we know why the Rangers went out of their way to avoid placing Stepan on LTIR which would’ve forced him to miss another week. Now we could see him back on the ice as early as tomorrow.  Hopefully the team isn’t rushing him back with...

Vancouver Canucks: WEAR A MOUTHGUARD!

Here is a little tip for kids these days. If you are going to play hockey, or any high contact sport, please wear a mouthguard! We would hate for you have an incident as bad as the one Dan Hamhuis had Wednesday. The Canucks beat the New York Rangers, 2-1, in Vancouver, but it came at a devastating price. Hamhuis was knocked down on a hard slap shot from Dan Boyle. Replays showed...

Why you should hope Dan Boyle gets better

There are many reasons to hope Dan Boyle can get his game to the point where he sticks in the Rangers line-up in what appears to be his final season as an NHL defenseman. First of all, if Boyle improves it would surely bring with it a ripple effect on the Rangers blueline – his […]

Dan Boyle Likely To Retire After 2015-16 Season

According to a report from this morning’s Bergen Record, Andrew Gross writes that, while not official, this year will be Dan Boyle’s last rodeo in the NHL. In Gross’ column, Boyle cites “family concerns” as he has two young daughters, that Boyle says ” You miss a lot of things. At a certain point, you don’t want to miss it anymore.” In 14 games, Boyle has yet to find...

Nine straight wins for the New York Rangers. A back and forth game all night, Mats Zuccarello comes through with his third point of the game to give the Rangers the lead over Toronto with less than a minute to go. What’s more impressive than the Rangers’ win streak is how they’re able to go about it. They continue to find all these new and exciting ways to win while getting...

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Ottawa native Dan Boyle scored the shootout winner Saturday afternoon as the New York Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators 2-1.

The benefits of a Dan Boyle/Dylan McIlrath rotation

Over the weekend, Alain Vigneault spoke with Dan Boyle, and said that he would be getting more time off as a healthy scratch throughout the season. The reasoning is that the Rangers have a fairly condensed schedule, with 17 back-to-backs and about ten (I think) three-in-fours. While Boyle is better defensively than he receives credit, […]

Despite Age, Dan Boyle Still Has Something Left

Let’s get one thing clear from the top, Dan Boyle’s time as a Ranger in the last year has been anything but linear. It hasn’t been an easy tenure for the Rangers eldest statesman that was marred by injury and illness a season ago. This season, questions over how much he has left in the tank is the burning question surrounding the Rangers defense corps.

Questioning Dan Boyle as a healthy scratch

The Rangers beat the Washington Capitals on Tuesday in a game that featured some pretty goals but some ugly defensive play on the part of the home team. Despite their victory they were badly outpossessed in the second and third periods, finding themselves frequently pinned in their own defensive end. The game drew into high […]
