Canadiens-Rangers Preview

After allowing their highest goal total in nearly two months, the New York Rangers could use another performance like the one they had the last time they faced Montreal. Given the way the Canadiens have been playing, however, they don't appear likely to throw another zero up on the Madison Square Garden scoreboard Thursday night. The Rangers (27-14-4) were on a 16-3-0 tear entering...

Does Rick Nash need to improve to merit Hart Trophy consideration?

Anyone that has seen Rick Nash at any great length this season knows he’s playing at a Hart Trophy level. Despite his play however, he’s ‘only’ 16th in total points. Everyone knows the major award decision makers usually –heavily– favour the point producers; it’s how Erik Karlsson has a Norris trophy in his cabinet after Read more → The post Does Rick Nash need to...

Rangers manage to score, but lose to Isles again

I was all set to write the goal breakdown last night. I DVR’d the right channel (finally). But then the full day of shoveling got to me, and I passed out instead. So, here we are the next morning, and I have no time to do a proper goal breakdown. Nor did I watch the Read more → The post Rangers manage to score, but lose to Isles again appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers 1, Islanders 4

The New York Rangers (27-14-4) fell to the New York Islanders (32-14-1) by a score of 4-1. For a box score, click here. AV made this one really easy on me tonight by saying tonight’s game “looked almost the same” as the other two losses at MSG already this season, so we’ll just skip the traditional recap. The Isles have outscored the Rangers 13-4 in three games. 122 minutes...

Nash’s aggressiveness on penalty kill a double-edged sword

Rick Nash has always been a solid penalty killer, a legitimate threat to provide offense even while down a man. Over his career, Nash has 20 shorthanded goals, with three already coming this season. Nash is so efficient on the PK because he has that rare combination of hockey IQ and skill. He uses these Read more → The post Nash’s aggressiveness on penalty kill a double-edged...

New look powerplay a breath of fresh air for the Rangers

If you’ve been a Ranger fan for a while, then you know that once Jaromir Jagr, Michal Nylander, and Martin Straka departed New York, the powerplay has been atrocious. It got to the comical point where fans were screaming to just pass on the powerplay and play 5v5 hockey instead. It’s something that really hampered Read more → The post New look powerplay a breath of fresh air...

Why the Rangers should stay quiet at the deadline

The Rangers, barring more trade robbery from Glen Sather, should stay quiet as the NHL trade deadline approaches. Several rumours are beginning to circulate around the Rangers and usually there’s no smoke without fire. Indeed, a lot of these rumours come from good sources (McKenzie, Dreger etc) but despite the rumours this Rangers team is Read more → The post Why the Rangers...

Why keeping Mats Zuccarello is a must for the New York Rangers

Yesterday I wrote how Marc Staal’s contract extension, combined with all other contracts on the books for next season, may mean that Carl Hagelin is the odd-man out for next year’s plans. Saying that people were divided on the issue would be an understatement. The loudest folks against dealing Hagelin were wondering why the Rangers Read more → The post Why keeping Mats Zuccarello...

Are the Rangers stable of centers among the league’s best?

What was meant to be an organisational weakness has become a strength for the New York Rangers. Understandably, there is instant angst when Derek Stepan misses any game time because of injury and his absence certainly creates a hole in the line-up but the Rangers have to be delighted with the way the center position Read more → The post Are the Rangers stable of centers among the...

Midseason Grades: Goaltending

Henrik Lundqvist: (35 GP; 23-9-3, 2.25 GA, ,921 SV%, 5 SO) Henrik got his season off the mat much faster than he did a season ago when he was sat multiple consecutive games in favor of Cam Talbot for the first time since his rookie season. The Rangers giving Lundqvist run support could be enough for Hank to challenge for his first 40 win campaign of his career. Grade: A- Cam...
