Rangers 4, Maple Leafs 5

The New York Rangers (6-5-2) fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs (7-5-2) by a score of 5-4. For a box score, click here. Annndddd, that’s how you give away two perfectly obtainable points against a team that hasn’t played well in their building so far this season. Bad, bad loss. It seems as though the book on Talbot’s strengths and weaknesses has been written and teams are beginning...

Jets 1, Rangers 0 (Shootout)

There are not many times that the Rangers could lose a home game to a below .500 team, hand a shutout to the statistically worst starting goaltender in the NHL (his first since last November), and leave most people largely satisfied with the performance. It’s hard to fault the Rangers’ performance tonight, though. Already missing Dan Boyle and John Moore, the Rangers lost Kevin...

Happy Halloween TheNYRBlog Style

Happy Halloween Rangers fans.

But in all seriousness, Captain Jack, what are your thoughts on the...

Lineup notes: Hunwick back in, Kostka skating as extra

Can’t really say this was unexpected, but after Mike Kostka’s two turnovers last night, he was skating as the 7D in practice today, per Seth Rothman. Marc Staal was skating with Matt Hunwick, and Kevin Klein was still with John Moore. The forward lines remained unchanged, as Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller were the extras.

Vigneault Shakes Things Up as Malone, Kostka In; Zuccarello Back; Miller, Fast, Hunwick Out

It may not be panic time in Rangerstown but their performance the last two games was apparently concerning enough to force Alain Vigneault to make some line-up changes tonight as Ryan Malone and Michael Kostka will make their Blueshirts debut against the Islanders. To make room for them in the line-up, JT Miller, Jesper Fast and Matt Hunwick will all be spectators from the press...

Rangers recall Mike Kostka

It comes with no surprise that the Rangers have recalled defenseman Mike Kostka from the Hartford Wolf Pack. With Dan Boyle out, the Rangers were short one right-handed defenseman, and Kosta was the only logical choice to fill in at the moment (Dylan McIlrath needs top minutes in the AHL). Matt Hunwick is a left-handed […] The post Rangers recall Mike Kostka appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Kostka Recalled; Lombardi Contract Terminated

As expected, in the wake of the Dan Boyle injury, the Rangers have recalled a defenseman from Hartford in the form of Michael Kostka. Similar to Boyle, Kostka is right-handed which gives him the upper-hand over Matt Hunwick to be inserted in the line-up tomorrow in Columbus. …this move tells you all you need to know about the organization’s confidence in McIlrath, who is also...

New York Rangers 2014-15 Season Thoughts

Getty Images I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about the finish for next season, but the Rangers 2014-2015 year began as soon as we lost in OT to the LA Kings in Game 5.  I still have night mares about it… ugh. So far with this off-season’s pickups, I’m looking forward to next year. I can taste NYR hockey. I can see Stepan skating down the ice, looking for a man, then...

Roy’s defensive strategy helped Avalanche succeed

The entire premise of the game of hockey is to score more goals than the other team. That’s the point and any further analysis only serves to muddy the simplicity of the game. There’s no other way to win. Sure, things like stats—fancy or otherwise—can be useful in painting a picture, but it all ties back to the original objective (winning), which is directly related to who...
