Rangers Dominate Puck Possession in Game One

It was pretty obvious from watching Thursday night’s Game 1 that the Rangers were in possession of the puck far more often than their counter-parts the Flyers. But actually how dominant were they? How about these stats… The Rangers outshot the Flyers 35 to 15, including 13 to 1 in the third period. Yes, the Flyers had four times as many penalties (4) than shots in the final frame...

New York Rangers Fan Gets Haircut That Kinda, Sorta Looks Like Rick Nash’s Face

When it comes time to support your favorite NHL player in the playoffs, most normal fans generally choose to wear some sort of apparel to show their support – a jersey, a t-shirt, maybe even some face paint. This New York Rangers fan, however, is not one of those normal fans. Instead of the jersey route, this guy elected to shave a photo of his favorite player – forward Rick...

Special Teams Will Be Key To Rangers/Flyers Series

Last season, the power play was the Rangers undoing in the playoffs. They went an unconscionable 4-for-44 combined in their two series against the Capitals and Bruins. If the Rangers plan on sticking around in the postseason a little longer this year, they’re obviously going to need to improve on those numbers, especially when you consider that the Flyers were the most penalized...

Penalty Minutes: Anaheim, Montreal favored for Stanley Cup runs

Unpredictability. It's what makes the Stanley Cup Playoffs maybe the most exciting of all of the North America pro sports leagues' postseason tournaments. In the NBA, upsets are rare and it's often easy to pick the favorite from the outset. The same holds true in the NFL. Denver making the Super Bowl was no shocker, nor was Seattle. If anything, it was the size of the...

so many forbidden feelings: series preview: Pens vs Blue Jackets

This is our sum of all fears as Penguins fans who fell in love with the Blue Jackets in their halcyon days, when they made the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, captained by Rick Nash and (wait for it) Steve Mason in his Calder year.  Sounds like a ******* fever dream these days but according to the Internet this did, in fact, actually happen.  This is the second...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay

One: After a scoreless first period, a quick succession of penalties in the second swung the momentum in the Lightning's favor. This wore out the team somewhat. Limiting the penalties taken has to be paramount as they move into the post-season. Two: Columbus got back to their physical game in the third period with two monstrous hits by Jack Johnson and Corey Tropp, respectively...

Rangers nip Sabres, gain home ice for 1st round of playoffs

So the Rangers have wrapped up home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs, everyone in the locker room was speaking of confidence as if it abounds, and, boy, isn’t life jolly? The reality is that Thursday night at the Garden should have been a wake-up call, a 2-1 win over the league-worst Sabres that was less than two minutes from being an utter embarrassment. With...

A look at Jesper Fast’s call up and the Rangers line combinations

On Monday, Jesper Fast was called up by the New York Rangers. The move followed the demotion of JT Miller (and Vigneault’s pointy comments about said player). Once he recovered from a high-ankle sprain, Fast became one of the Hartford Wolf Pack’s most consistent players. His call up was warranted, but the move made sense for a number of other reasons. I’ve argued that Miller...

Assessing the Rangers wingers, long term

While everyone who watches the Rangers with any regularity would agree that the Rangers need to address the center position in the near future, the Rangers have got a lot more talent on the wing than many will lead you to believe. It starts but certainly doesn’t end with the current roster. With Rick Nash […]

Shea Weber: “Something’s got to change”

After the Nashville Predators were officially eliminated from the playoff picture last night, captain Shea Weber — usually a man of very few words — vented to Josh Cooper of The Tennessean. “Nobody likes losing,” Weber said. “It’s frustrating. I don’t know what to say. It sucks. I hate it. Everyone in here hates it and it’s not a good feeling. Something’s got to...

Three takeaways from the Blue Jackets 4-3 OT win over the Coyotes

One: Although they won, they looked tentative toward the end of the first and into the beginning of the second period. With the playoffs looming, a full 60-minute game is needed each and every night. There can be no hesitation or tentativeness if they hope to advance past the first round. Two: Ryan Johansen has emerged as not only a very good player this season, but also as a "...

Do The Columbus Blue Jackets Need A ‘Face Of The Franchise’?

from Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch, The Blue Jackets have no captain and no superstar. Not a single player on the roster has played in an NHL All-Star Game. Rick Nash, the former captain, All-Star and Olympian whose name was synonymous with the team for nearly a decade, has been gone for almost two years. So which face goes on the billboard, in the promotional...

Rangers 5, Oilers 0

Let’s make this much clear. The Edmonton Oilers are a bad hockey team. Not just a bad hockey team, but a bad hockey team with absolutely no confidence. Even a team like Buffalo, who have less talent than many KHL teams, at least have some life and play with some purpose. The Oilers have no redeeming qualities and it showed tonight. Of course, the Rangers didn’t pick their schedule...
