Video: The Mac Truck

It’s only been a month since the Rangers crushing Game 5 loss to the Kings in the Stanley Cup Final and I’m already jonesing some hockey. This awesome Ryan McDonagh highlight video from @JCGraphicDesign definitely helps… …McDonagh only being paid $4.7 million per year for the next five years is an absolute coup by Sather. Not a better bargain in all of the NHL.

Retain or Release: Anton Stralman

Sorry for the short hiatus. I’d give you reasons for it but nobody actually cares, so we’ll just skip that. Instead, let’s move on to the defensemen, now that we’ve covered all of the forwards up for new contracts. We’ll start with by far the most pressing situation for the Rangers, and that’s the status of Anton Stralman.   Vitals Age: Turns 28 in August Previous Contract...

Why Ryan McDonagh Should Be the Rangers Captain

#450452594 / gettyimages.com June 30th, 2009 will be a day many Rangers fans will remember as the day we traded Scott Gomez to the Montreal Canadians. Included in the trade, the Rangers received, Christopher Higgins, Doug Janik, Pavel Valentenko, and Ryan McDonagh. At the time, no body really thought that the McDonagh kid was going to do much good, I was one of those people. McDonagh’s...

New York Rangers Lose Stanley Cup, Still Plenty To Look Forward To

Well, it’s over. It’s just about 36 hours since double overtime ended with Alec Martinez putting home an essentially empty-net rebound after another save by Henrik Lundqvist. The heartbreak started to set in yesterday morning after waking up, realizing that not only is hockey season over, but the New York Rangers were close, but not close enough, to winning their first Stanley...

Tyler Toffoli And Ryan McDonagh Hit Posts In Overtime

During one of the best overtimes in recent memory, Ryan McDonagh rang one off the bar and Tyler Toffoli ripped one of the crossbar. Both came excruciatingly close to winning the game for their team, but it’s a game of inches. Craziest part of it all is neither shot even counts as a shot on […] The post Tyler Toffoli And Ryan McDonagh Hit Posts In Overtime appeared first on Diehardsport.

Referees Crease: Lundqvist and goalie interference in the Stanley Cup Final

I’m a referee, which means you probably hate me. But it also means I know what the right or wrong call is. Whenever there is a controversial call, I will weigh in with impunity. At 1:58 of the 3rd period, Matt Greene took a shot from the point that found its way into the net as Dwight King tipped it and fell on top of Henrik Lundqvist. Referee Dan O’Halloran immediately signaled...

Henrik Lundqvist: Officials have to be consistent

The New York Rangers are down 2-0 to the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Final and are hoping to even the series when they return home for Games 3 and 4. The Rangers fell 2-0 after Dustin Brown redirected Willie Mitchell’s shot 10:26 into the second overtime to give the Kings a 5-4 win on Saturday night. “I don’t think we’re devastated,” Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi...

Stanley Cup Finals Game 2

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals had the same start like game one.   The Rangers took it to the Kings and got the first goal when Ryan McDonagh fired the puck by Jonathan Quick to give them a 1-0 lead.  The goal was set up by a hit by Dominic Moore.    McDonagh took a bad penalty late in the 1st period.  However, the Rangers killed the it and continued their strong penalty...

McDonagh Positioning Himself for Captaincy

Make no mistake about it, Brad Richards has become the de facto captain of the Rangers this postseason, but it’s Ryan McDonagh who is setting himself up for a permanent captaincy position. He’s become a leader on and off the ice and is making a huge impression on his teammates… “His attitude is like a captain,” Derick Brassard said of McDonagh recently. And if you don...

Biggest Rangers Standouts During the Playoffs

We all know how well players like Ryan McDonagh, Martin St. Louis, the de facto first line of Mats Zuccarello, Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard have played throughout the postseason. Some have elevated their game; others have just played consistent to get the Rangers here. Some (namely Rick Nash) have played well, but have yet to hit that next gear. Oh, and that Henrik Lundqvist...

NHL’s Online Store Sells Rangers Jerseys For $63 By Mistake

Rangers fans buying customized 2014 Stanley Cup Final jerseys from the NHL.com shop on May 31 were in luck. Because of a system glitch, the site mistakenly discounted the jerseys by 70 percent. The jerseys cost $184.95, but were sold for $63.33. With the New York Rangers making the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994, there’s no doubt that the NHL store has been receiving...

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of Yahoo, The Rangers will be decided underdogs whomever they face in the final – the Los Angeles Kings or the Chicago Blackhawks, the last two Stanley Cup champions. They have to hope that series goes seven and the winner is worn out. But this is a team with a goaltender who can do amazing things – like the OMG-at-MSG blocker save on a deflection...

Do You Consider Ryan McDonagh An Elite Defenseman?

McDonagh Back to Being McDonagh

On April 1st in Vancouver, Rangers fans watched the season flash before their eyes as Ryan McDonagh lay on the ice writhing in pain while clutching his left shoulder after absorbing a hit from behind from Alex Burrows. Fortunately, our worst fears did not come to fruition as McDonagh was able to return for the start of the playoffs. But from Game 1 against the Flyers, it was obvious...

Briere punches McDonagh, will always be a rat (GIF)

Danny Briere is a diminutive forward who has made a lot of money in the NHL by being really good at hockey. He’s also a rat, which is probably why he has survived for so long considering he’s 5’8 (on a good day) and played a good chunk of his career prior to the ‘small guy friendly’ rule changes from the ’03-’04 lockout. Here, he straight up punches Ryan McDonagh in...

NHL Playoff Observations -- Eastern Conference Game 1

Just a few things that caught my eye: Do you think the Habs regret that Ryan McDonagh trade? Where are Scott Gomez, Tom Pyatt and Michael Busto any way? Saturday night is for hockey. Saturday afternoon is for mountain biking, at least in my world. NBC ratings have sucked for years -- why does the league sacrifice -- or should I say, take for granted -- Canadian audiences...

Rangers defeat Penguins 5-1 in Game 5 – Knee-Jerk Reactions

McDonagh had 23 zone starts (tied with Dan Girardi for the most of any Ranger tonight), and 19 of them were either in the defensive or neutral zone. Alain Vigneault appears to recognize...

NHL takeaways: Good news, Rangers fans -- it's almost over

To say New York hasn’t gotten the bang for its buck from its big-name stars would be an understatement. But the final boom will come soon, and the Penguins will be lowering it.
