The Rangers are in Montreal tonight, looking to make it four wins in a row after dropping three straight.

The need for the top-three to be better

Through the first seven games of the season, the Rangers have tread water with a 4-3 record. Considering the injuries to Derek Stepan and Dan Boyle, that’s what most had hoped for. These are two significant injuries that compound the issue of significant roster turnover from last year. Those that have been with the club […] The post The need for the top-three to be better appeared...

The Resurgence of Rick Nash

No one wants to say it out loud because it’s still so early, but through the first two weeks of the season at least, it’s true. Rick Nash is back. One of the premier snipers in the league since he entered it as the first overall pick in 2002, Nash’s stock had fallen somewhat since […] The post The Resurgence of Rick Nash appeared first on Two Pad Stack.

Alain Vigneault: Master Motivator

After the Rangers mutiny against Führer Tortorella back in the Spring of 2013, conventional wisdom was that the Rangers would replace him with a players coach. And that thought process was confirmed with the hiring of Alain Vigneault, who had the reputation of using a hands-off approach which allowed his players to police themselves While that coaching strategy was initially perceived as...

Since the Rangers Are Resting So Am I

Inspired by this quote from Alain Vigneault yesterday regarding the Rangers three day break in between games… “It’s good for us, in a sense. Rest and recovery-wise, it’s excellent. And next week, obviously, we’ll have a lot of practice time…which you don’t get a chance for often in the regular season.” …I decided to take a little break today after pretty much going...

St. Louis playing an all-around game, but one thing’s missing

Martin St. Louis is doing just about everything for the Rangers this season. He has a team-leading five assists and is tied with Rick Nash with a plus-6 to lead the Blueshirts. Still, through seven games, St. Louis has only one goal. But if the inability to find the back of the net through the Rangers’ first seven games is bothering the 39-year-old, he’s not showing it. ...

How Rick Nash went from playoff bust to NHL's leading scorer

As a goal scorer, Rick Nash has always dabbled in the extremes. “I usually find myself a pretty streaky player. If they’re going in, they’re going in,” he said Tuesday night, after the New York Rangers rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils. “If they’re not … they’re definitely not.” They definitely weren’t last postseason.

Although the New York Rangers’ lines are in a state of flux due to injuries, we have seen enough games thus far to get a fair barometer on how Alain Vigneault will deploy his lines throughout the season.

Rangers’ depth shining in the early going

Forget Mike Kostka. The one-game experiment with the 28-year-old defender notwithstanding, the Rangers’ depth has been extremely impressive so far this season. Derek Stepan and Dan Boyle are two enormous losses that most teams wouldn’t be able to withstand, but New York has weathered the storm remarkably well through seven games. It hasn’t been easy.

It’s not that the Martin St. Louis was bad at center for the Rangers, it’s that he’s so much better at right wing.

A Kevin Klein overtime winner against the Devils? Yep
