Rangers sneak past Hurricanes in shootout

The New York Rangers made us sweat last night, escaping Carolina with a 3-2 shootout win over the Hurricanes. It was the third time that the Rangers had gone to the shootout with the Canes in the five game regular season series, and last night’s win gave the Rangers a season series sweep of the woeful Canes. But this game…

The Canes are not a good team this season, but they should be better than their record. This is a club that has been dealing with a number of injuries all…

Scott Darling stopped 25 shots for his first career shutout and Brad Richards scored the game’s only goal as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the New York Rangers 1-0.

Henrik Lundqvist cleared to practice

In some very good news, goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been cleared to practice by team doctors. Lundqvist, who has been out for the past six weeks with a vascular injury suffered after taking a puck to the throat, will likely need some practice time before getting back into a game. The Rangers will also be in no rush to get…

Managing the Martin St. Louis injury

With Martin St. Louis out 10-14 days with a knee injury, the New York Rangers find themselves needing to weather the storm while he heals. We can debate the argument over whether St. Louis needed the rest or not, but the point remains that the Rangers will need to find a way to deal with a top-six forward out of…

The importance of four line depth

Last night, the fourth line accounted for all of the scoring for the New York Rangers in their 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers. While the Rangers probably didn’t deserve to win that game (Florida doubled up on them in shot attempts and scoring chances), the game illustrated just how important four line depth is to team success. The ability…
