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...

Penguins-Rangers Preview

The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins have conflicting views on how Game 1 went. What isn't in question is that the Rangers' version translated to the scoreboard. If it does again Saturday night at Madison Square Garden, the best road team in hockey will be heading to Pittsburgh with a 2-0 series lead. In Thursday's 2-1 win, Derick Brassard struck 28 seconds in and the 2013...

Rangers-Penguins Game One Recap

Note: I apologize for the late post here, somebody (raises hand) fell asleep right after the game and had to write this in the morning.

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...
