Poll: Will AV really scratch Tanner Glass?

Now that Derek Stepan’s contract situation is all settled, the Rangers roster for the 2015-2016 season is more or less set. There is always a possibility for a Ryan Malone-style PTO, but as of now, this is our group. Currently, there are fourteen (thirteen if you don’t actually count Glass) viable NHL forwards fighting for […]

What went right/wrong: Alain Vigneault’s coaching

The coaching of Alain Vigneault has come under fire in past months, as he appeared to be routinely outcoached by Barry Trotz and Jon Cooper in the playoffs. Compounding this was his decision to play Tanner Glass regularly, a decision which left most fans baffled. But Vigneault is a Jack Adams finalist, so it’s not […]

Obligatory Rick Nash trade rumors post

I love the offseason. It’s a chance to go through available players and play armchair-GM to make your favorite team a Cup contender next season. But with the offseason comes a season of lunacy.

The Rangers Tanner Glass Throat Speared Caps G Braden Holtby

New York Ranger Tanner Glass speared Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby last night. Holtby? Went down like he was shot.Epic. Perhaps if Chris Kreider would stop crashing nets, we wouldn't see this as often...The NYR only scored once on Holtby...and it was as lucky as it gets.Follow us on Twitter for exclusive stories, Subscribe by Email, or Return home for Top sports news.

Rangers 4, New Jersey 2

The New York Rangers (52-21-7) defeated the New Jersey Devils (32-35-13) by a score of 4-2. For a box score, click here. Presidents Trophy. Home ice throughout 4 rounds of the playoffs. Damn it feels good to be a Rangers fan right now. Again, the trophy itself means nothing. What’s important to me is getting every Game 7 to be played at MSG this postseason. You know it’s going...

Dominic Moore providing the Rangers with championship calibre depth

Despite being lumbered with Tanner Glass as a linemate, Dominic Moore has once again provided the Rangers with a quality depth player, the kind of player who makes a difference in the playoffs.
