Game 61: Keep rolling against Philly

The New York Rangers are going to look to keep rolling tonight in Philadelphia, taking on a Flyers team that has found their way into the playoff race. Philly isn’t in the race by virtue of being good (26-25-11), but by virtue of the Bruins and Panthers being unable to actually win games regularly. The Flyers are still six points…

Kreider, Stempniak lead comeback over Arizona

The New York Rangers scared everyone a bit, but managed to score three unanswered goals in the final two periods en route to a 4-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes. The Rangers surrendered two powerplay goals to Sam Gagner late in the first period, which gave the Yotes a 3-1 lead heading into the break. After that, Lee Stempniak scored…

Game 60: Beat a bad Arizona team

The New York Rangers, winners of their last three, 7-1-2 in their last ten, and 26-6-2 in their last 34, take on a pretty terrible Arizona Coyotes team that is entering full scale fire sale mode. The Yotes haven’t made any trades yet, but they will. GM Don Maloney said no one on the team is untouchable, except for Shane…

Musings: Trades, trades, and more trades! Hooray!

Chris is still out gallivanting around this glorious country of ours, so I’m covering his musings today. I don’t like to dawdle with long intros, so let’s get right to it. It’s the final musings before the trade deadline. There has been a lot of action the past two days, and it looks like all of the solid potential targets…

McKenzie: New York Rangers have interest in Tyler Bozak

In the “oh FFS please don’t do this” department, Bob McKenzie has reported that the Rangers are very interested in Toronto Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak. Before I go into why this is makes absolutely zero logical sense, let’s look at Bozak the player, independent of his fit in New York. And let me tell you, it’s not pretty. Everyone…

Rangers return Oscar Lindberg to AHL

Oscar Lindberg’s stay with the Rangers was brief, subbing in for the injured Rick Nash for last night’s 1-0 win over the Calgary Flames. Lindberg was immediately returned to the Hartford Wolf Pack following the game. This is likely due to the fact that cap space is very tight, and since cap space is calculated on a daily basis, Lindberg’s…

Game 59: Keep it going against Calgary

The New York Rangers are back in action tonight, taking on the surprising Calgary Flames who, and I can’t believe these words are coming out of my mouth this late in the season, are still in the playoff hunt. With 68 points through 59 games, the Flames are tied with the Kings for fourth in the Pacific Division, but LA…

Rangers call up Oscar Lindberg

The New York Rangers have called up forward Oscar Lindberg for tonight’s game against the Calgary Flames, per Swedish media. There have been reports of multiple Rangers battling the flu, and this call up is a sign that at least one forward is out for tonight’s game. Earlier this month, we speculated that it might be time to give Lindberg…

Jesper Fast injury: what options do the Rangers have upon return?

In case you missed it, Jesper Fast is currently skating in a non-contact jersey at practice. While there is no timetable for his return, it is always promising to see someone with a knee injury skating again. Eventually he will return to the lineup, and at that point, the Rangers will have a bunch of lineup questions that will need…

Revisiting that bursting bubble for the Rangers

Earlier this month, I wrote a post about the New York Rangers and how their underlying numbers weren’t those of a team that can win a Stanley Cup. While that post may have been a bit doomsday/worst case scenario, the numbers didn’t lie. It’s a position that I still take: I don’t believe this team has been playing a dominant…
