Nash downgraded to week-to-week; McDonagh skates in full gear

Some news out of practice today from Rick Carpiniello, some of it good, some not good. Rick Nash, out for a few weeks with a bone bruise, has been downgraded from day-to-day to week-to-week. That’s obviously not good, as Nash is the Rangers’ best forward. They’ve been surviving on the recent hot streak for JT […] The post Nash downgraded to week-to-week; McDonagh skates in...

McDonagh Practices; Unlikely For Tomorrow

The man in red at #NYR practice is team captain @rmcdonagh27!! pic.twitter.com/8Jv2IsaeTp — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 13, 2016 Looks like McDonagh will have to wait until next season, barring a miraculous run to the playoffs by Philly for the Ranger captain to re-acquaint himself for Wayne Simmonds. For now Simmonds will have to answer to Tanner Glass tomorrow. Try...

Rangers 4, Los Angeles 5 (OT)

The New York Rangers (31-18-6) dropped a tough 5-4 OT decision to the LA Kings (33-18-3). For a box score, click here. Because just what I needed tonight was another flashback to June 2014. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Eventually the coin will flip the Rangers way. It’s uncanny how this team cannot catch one friggin’ break against the Kings. But first...

The New York Rangers blow yet another one late

That one really hurt, for obvious reasons. The New York Rangers had a 4-3 lead with 30 seconds left in the game against the Los Angeles Kings. Yes, those Kings who beat the Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2014. After going down 2-0 early on in the game, the Rangers scored three straight, gave up another to tie, scored again, and then gave up the fourth one with the Kings’...

Game 55: Can they make it five in a row?

The Rangers are on a roll at the moment, winning five in a row. They are showing tremendous resiliency, as they are doing this without their two best players, Ryan McDonagh and Rick Nash. Others have stepped up, and the process has been much better. They had a slight blip on Wednesday, but Henrik Lundqvist […] The post Game 55: Can they make it five in a row? appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Rangers pass on Christian Ehrhoff

Despite rumors that the Rangers would put in a claim for waived Kings defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, he cleared waivers this afternoon. Ehrhoff is on a one-year deal worth $1.5 million, and has a line of 2-9-11 in 40 games this season. As a cheap and effective defenseman for an injury riddled club, Ehrhoff seemed like […] The post Rangers pass on Christian Ehrhoff appeared first...

Henrik Lundqvist is ageless

Yesterday we discussed the long career of Martin Brodeur and all he did for the New Jersey Devils. Henrik Lundqvist is past the age that goalies typically start to decline, but he still keeps churning out good games (like last night when he shut out the Penguins), which turn into good seasons. He hasn’t been able to etch his name in the Cup like Brodeur has three times, but Lundqvist...

Shorthanded Rangers shut down depleted Penguins

The Rangers came into Pittsburgh without arguably their two best skaters, yet on a three game win streak. The Penguins were without Evgeni Malkin, but on a six game win streak. Something had to give for these two hot teams. The depleted blue line held the depleted offense in check, in the sense that Henrik […] The post Shorthanded Rangers shut down depleted Penguins appeared first...

Lundqvist stops 34 shots, Rangers blank Penguins 3-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots for his third shutout of the season and 58th of his career, leading the New York Rangers past the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-0 on Wednesday night. Lundqvist, who recorded his 27th win of the season, passed Martin Brodeur for most wins by a goaltender in his first 11 NHL seasons. He has won nine of his last 12 starts and allowed two goals...

Period number two is underway..it's 1-0 #NYR — New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 11, 2016 Obviously, this is an extra boring tweet. In that regard, it is unfathomable to me that there are 24 retweets. This must have something to do with the new algorithm.

Yandle Now Top Dman On Trade Market

A pair moves that shook the NHL on Monday and Tuesday has cast a spotlight on the Rangers and specifically Keith Yandle as the days towards the February 29th trade deadline begin wind down. On Monday, Dustin Byfuglien signed a five year, $38 million extension with the Winnipeg Jets. On one hand, that contract could set a benchmark with Yandle’s next contract, but you also may have...

Rising Rangers still missing spark plugs

The Rangers’ defensive lapses and disappointing individual performances have been discussed again and again, but one surprising issue this season has been the frequency with which the team hits the ice with very little energy. We saw so few of those pure stinker games in recent years under first John Tortorella and then Alain Vigneault, but […] The post Rising Rangers still...

Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach with Keith Yandle?

Through the end of January, it seemed to be a sure bet that the Rangers were going to trade Keith Yandle. The club has Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal locked into long-term deals and have Brady Skjei –their 2012 1st round pick– knocking at the door. That’s a pretty crowded left side. Getting the most […] The post Should the Dustin Byfuglien deal change the Rangers’ approach...

Rangers 2, New Jersey 1

The New York Rangers (30-18-5) defeated the New Jersey Devils (26-21-7) by the score of 2-1. For a box score, click here. For a game that was pretty well in control for 60 minutes and they STILL find a way to make it adventurous late.  I was in attendance at MSG for the first time this year. A lot more Devils fans than I expected with the threat of weather moving in. Still the...

NEW YORK (AP) Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh has been ruled out for New York's game with the New Jersey Devils with a possible concussion.

The New York Rangers must retain Keith Yandle

After Saturday’s epic comeback win down 12 seconds in the third, it’s even more clear that the New York Rangers need to do everything they can to get Keith Yandle re-signed. The guy has been the Rangers’ best offensive defenseman and it’s not even close. He’s leading the entire team in assists, is fifth on the team in points, and is first on the team in points by defensemen...

Practice notes: No McDonagh or Nash

Per Sean Hartnett, neither Rick Nash (leg) nor Ryan McDonagh (head) are on the ice for this morning’s skate. It is likely that both will be out tonight against the Devils. No call up has been made, so Dylan McIlrath will probably get in the lineup tonight. Right now, it is unclear which right-handed defenseman […] The post Practice notes: No McDonagh or Nash appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.
