  It’s all about recovery. After a Game 1 loss that bordered on embarrassment, the Flyers looked to rebound and tie their first round series against the host New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon. Mission accomplished. Making sure this time that they didn’t allow Ray Emery to get ragdolled (too much) while he fills in for injured starting goaltender Steve Mason, the Flyers bounced...

Vigneault Succeeding Where Tortorella Erred

One of the most frustrating aspects of John Tortorella’s tenure as head coach of the Rangers was his absolute refusal to roll four lines and six defensemen in the playoffs. He attempted to ride his horses to victory, but ultimately just rode them into the ground while the Rangers postseason opponents took advantage of Tortorella’s overuse of key players as the fourth line of...

The Rangers’ ‘big three’ coming to the fore at the right time?

The signs were there at the end of the regular season as Martin St. Louis began to look like the player the Rangers hoped they had acquired. It continued on Thursday night. St. Louis, while not registering a shot, was engaged, around the puck and around the net all night long and came up with […]

Reflecting On The Coach Trade

Last summer the Vancouver Canucks and New York Rangers effectively traded coaches.  Alain Vigneault left Vancouver to coach the Rangers and John Tortorella left New York to coach the Canucks.  This would be a pretty good opportunity to compare the two coaches with each other's teams.  A season has been played.  The New York Rangers had a solid playoff season.  They posted...

The National Anthem Before Rangers-Flyers Game 1 Was A Hot Mess

I don’t know too much about John Amirante, but a quick Google search reveals that he has been singing National Anthems before New York Rangers games at Madison Square Garden for a couple of decades now. He returned to MSG to kick off the Rangers opening round series against the Flyers on Thursday night, and his rendition was pretty much a mess. Awesome jacket though. [CNBC] Article...

The Flyers May be Putting A Target On Ryan McDonagh’s Back

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Question: Do you know the difference between Bobby Orr and Ryan McDonagh?

Rangers Haven’t Spoken With Richards About Buyout

The only certainties in life are death, taxes and that Brad Richards will be bought out this summer. Despite a renaissance this season, which saw the 33-year old hit the 20 goal mark for the ninth time in his career, his contract, which still has six years, $6.67M per left, remains an albatross around the Rangers neck. But if the Rangers do intend on amnestying Richards, they’ve...
