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.

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.

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...
