A couple of big-time college hockey players have signed entry-level professional contracts. Both of these are huge losses for their teams. I did enjoy watching Jonny Brodzinski play the last three season. I didn't get to see Brady Skjei play that much, except on TV.FULL STORY: @BradySkjei agrees to terms with #NYR, set to report to @WolfPackAHL: http://t.co/evFIbw23of pic.twitterâ...
With the Stanley Cup Playoffs on the horizon, I have spent a lot of time thinking about potential 1st-round-matchups for the New York Rangers. These musings have led me to realize that there are many teams that I would rather the Rangers not face early â if at all â in the playoffs. Here, in [âŚ]

The New York Rangers enter the month of April as the Eastern Conference Metropolitan Division leaders. Â The Blueshirtsâ record of 47-21-7 sits them currently with 101 points, Â trailing the Eastern Conference leaders, the Montreal Canadiens, by only one point as they battle for control over the top seeding heading into the 2014-5 NHL Playoffs. Â The Rangers have been exceptional...
Winnipegâs Dustin Byfuglien will have a hearing tomorrow for cross-checking NY Rangers forward J.T. Miller.
â NHL Player Safety (@NHLPlayerSafety) April 1, 2015
With the season nearly at an end, expect only 2 games. If anything, not having Byfuglien severely hampers Winnipegâs chances to make the playoffs.Â

Brady Skjei, the New York Rangers first round pick in 2012, has signed an amateur tryout (ATO) with the Hartford Wolfpack. Skeji will join the Pack for the rest of the regular season and playoffs. The Rangers have wanted Skjei to turn pro, and this appears to be the first step in the process.

Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien delivers a brutal cross check to Rangers center J. T.

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien will likely be seeing some supplemental discipline from the NHL after cross-checking New York Rangers center J.T. Miller in the back of the head during Tuesday night's game at the MTS Centre.Miller was trying to play the puck in front of Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec, but fell to the ice. Before Miller could get up, Byfuglien delivered the...
After two very sloppy games over the weekend, the New York Rangers came into Winnipeg and beat a desperate Jets team in regulation to right the ship. Henrik Lundqvist allowed one softie, but stopped 32 of 34 shots for his first win since his injury. He was rusty, and some of his positioning and rebound

Better game tonight out of the Rangers to end a 2 game slide and not let it spiral out of control.
The Rangers however were very badly outshot and outchanced in this one by a very desperate Winnipeg team. Difference was Henrik Lundqvist in net. IâveÂ missed writingÂ that...
Chris Kreider scored with 3:46 left in the third period, and Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers rallied to beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Lundqvist, playing for the second time since missing 25 games with a neck injury, stopped 32 shots and earned his first win in his return.
Kreider beat defensemen Adam Pardy and Dustin Byfuglien near the blue line and sent...

The New York Rangers are in Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets, looking to rebound from two pretty poor performances over the weekend. The Rangers were very sloppy with the puck in those games, and their turnovers and poor defensive zone play led directly to both losses to potential first round opponents. The Blueshirts

The New York Rangers are in the playoffs. But Ryan Lambert of Puck Daddy raised a question that struck a nerve with a lot of fans: Should the Rangers scare anyone?Â The article uses raw SAT%/CF% and SPSV%/PDO to justify that the Rangers are a poor possession team that are riding a great season of luck.

After a 5-1Â win against the Ottawa Senators that secured a playoff spot, the New York Rangersâ level of determination has simply been lackluster. Starting from the game in New York against the Los Angeles Kings on March 24, their remaining schedule consists of a bunchÂ teams that are either in the playoffs and barely holding on, or are bubble teams. Ergo, they have a tough set...
Letâs kick it back two months, shall we? Rangers playing Carolina, some traffic in front of Henrik LundqvistÂ and suddenly the face of the franchise is laying on the ice with an injury.

After playing their way to the top of the NHL and becoming the first team to clinch a playoff birth, the New York Rangers have gone on a recent skid, dropping back-to-back games to the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals. While losing a pair of games to desperate, playoff-hopeful teams like the Bruins and Capitals [âŚ]

The New York Rangers have returned defenseman Chris Summers to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the AHL. Summers was an emergency fill-in for Matt Hunwick, who missed the game yesterday against Washington with an undisclosed injury. Returning Summers to the AHL means that Hunwick is ready to go for the game tomorrow in Winnipeg.

1) Despite the pair of weekend losses, the Rangers are stillÂ the odds on favorite to win the Presidents Trophy. Iâve seen talk about some fans wanting the Rangers to somehow not win it to avoid the stigma it allegedly carries into the playoffs. Since the 1985-86 season when the Presidents Trophy was handed out, 8 teams have gone on to win the Stanley Cup. Â If having the Presidents...
(Hello, this is a feature that will run through the entire season and aims to recap the weekendâs events and boils those events down to one admittedly superficial fact or stupid opinion about each team. Feel free to complain about it.) Henrik Lundqvist returned to the lineup on Saturday for the first time since Feb. 2, meaning he missed more than a month and a half. On Feb...

The New York Rangers played their second straight sloppy game, constantly turning the puck over to a dangerous Washington Capitals team en route to a 4-2 defeat. This was another classic âif you donât protect the puck, you wonât winâ game from the Rangers. New York did a great job of limiting attempts âboth in

Crummy weekend. The Rangers have usually done a good job at responding to bad losses this season, but that wasnât the case in this one. Panic? No. Concerning? Very much.

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Chris Summers from the AHL to fill in for the injured Matt Hunwick this afternoon. Summers was an extra body acquired in the Keith Yandle deal. He has an assist in ten games with the Hartford Wolf Pack. He will likely be a temporary fill in until Hunwick returns.
