Rangers 0, Tampa Bay 2

The New York Rangers season came to an end Friday night at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 2-0. For a box score, click here. Well, that sucked. So much left on the table. Hard to see the season come to an end that way. I’m going to keep this recap short and concise, considering that there really isn’t much to pick at from this game. Not much ice available out...

New York Rangers: Failure is an understatement

As close as the New York Rangers came to completing the puzzle. There are really no other words to describe this New York Rangers season any better than failure and disappointment. In spite of, in the last four years, three conference finals, a President’s Trophy, a Prince of Wales Trophy, and a division title, this season still ends in failure and disappointment. The common person...

Rangers 4, Washington 2

The New York Rangers (53-22-7) defeated the Washington Capitals (45-26-11) by a score of 4-2. For a box score, click here. Historical regular season campaign for NYR. Most points and wins in a single season since the 93-94 Rangers. Although it means nil if this team can’t accomplish what that did.

No Callups Expected In MSL’s absence; NYR Lineup

Yesterday, Larry Brooks at the NY Post reported that the Rangers were not expected to call up additional forwards from the Hartford Wolf Pack. Primarily this is due to the Rangers having virtually no cap space (rip capgeek) with Henrik Lundqvist coming off LTIR any day now. If the Rangers sustain anymore injuries they can make an emergency callup under terms of the CBA, but we...

Rangers 2, Florida 1

The New York Rangers (44-17-7) defeated the Florida Panthers (31-24-14) by a score of 2-1. For a box score, click here. Better to be lucky, than to be good. Let’s get one thing straight. The Rangers pulled that one out of their asses. And if it wasn’t for a Tanner Glass-less fourth line, we’re talking about a sobering loss to a desperate Florida Panthers team than a win that...

Open Thread 3/7: Four Thoughts Post Deadline

1. In light of the Keith Yandle acquisition, much has been made of the Rangers “championship window” that seems to be always just at the precipice of closing. Viewing at their overall contract situations, the Rangers are pretty well set up this year and next year for quality shots at a championship. The only real question mark is Martin St.Louis’ expiring contract and how much...

How does James Sheppard influence Oscar Lindberg’s Rangers future?

James Sheppard makes his Rangers debut against the Detroit Red Wings tonight so from a Rangers perspective we know very little about Sheppard.
