Western Conference playoffs Chicago Blackhawks vs St. Louis Blues

Hot or Not: Around the NHL

With All-Star weekend upon us, it’s about that time again to evaluate who’s hot, who’s not, and exactly what has been going on while we’ve been in our Blueshirt bubble. It’s been a season filled with surprisingly good teams, surprising struggles and a strange new tradition up north of throwing jerseys onto the ice. The Good New York Islanders –…

Perfect for a Post-Game Rave!

All Star Game team thoughts

The All-Star selections came out yesterday, making it a huge topic of conversation since it’s been three years since the last All-Star game. Some basic facts to know about the game are that it’ll take place in Columbus this year, it takes place on Sunday, January 25 (two weeks!), and that each team has to have at least one representative…

Game 31: Carolina still isn’t good, make it six in a row

The New York Rangers are back home tonight, taking on the Carolina Hurricanes in the second game of their home-and-home. The Rangers eked out a shootout win last night in Raleigh, extending their winning streak to five games. Before their 4-1 win over Toronto the other day, Carolina had lost six in a row. They are a bottom-feeder in the Metro Division,…

Rangers Holiday Wish List

If you live anywhere near New York City, you know the holidays are in full swing. Traffic is at an all time high, the sidewalks are especially difficult to navigate and Rangers tickets are astronomically high for teams that aren’t very good. Also, there are pretty awesome displays, lights and huge trees everywhere. It’s a lovely time to be around…

Around the League: Trouble in Edmonton

I was watching some hockey game last week – Lord knows it wasn’t the Rangers, since they had basically all week off – when the standings flashed on my screen and I nearly choked on my hot chocolate. The FLORIDA PANTHERS have more points than the Rangers!? Surely I must’ve been drunk, but no, I wasn’t. I wondered what the…

Rangers blank Flyers to start the back-to-back series

The Rangers played the Thanksgiving Classic on a national broadcast yesterday as the first of their back-to-back afternoon home and home games against the Flyers. The national broadcast was on NBC, so we got the opportunity to listen to some fine pre- and postgame analysis from the Milbury-Jones outstanding duo. How lucky. From 1pm unti the puck dropped around 1:20,…

Around the League: Maple Leafs, Stars and Oilers, oh my

With the Rangers playing so many games in such a little amount of time, it’s easy to forget that there’s a whole league out there that’s been happening without us. Luckily, you don’t need Center Ice or NHL.com when you’ve got a Sunday BSB update. A lot of really amusing things have been happening lately, so let’s go through them….

Ryan Callahan returns to the Garden tonight

Tonight is just another game in the Rangers action-packed, though sometimes exhausting November, right? Sure, they’re up against the best offensive team in hockey, a team tied for second in points in the entire National Hockey League, so it’ll be a tough one, but otherwise, nothing crazy happening tonight at the Garden. The talent here at BSB later today will…

Rangers drop a brutal one to the Oilers

Going in to last night, there was good news and bad news. The bad news: the Rangers returned late last night with barely any time to rest up and prepare for their 6pm start. The good news: the 6pm start was against the Edmonton Oilers, known for not playing up to their talent level. Nothing like a quick victory to…

Rangers edge past Wings in an Original Six nailbiter

The Rangers hosted the Red Wings on a slow night in hockey in what was a pretty riveting Original Six matchup. I’m still wrapping my head around what the term “rivalry” means to NBCSN, but so far I mostly think it means “the game that’ll generate the most viewership.” I also think it means an 8pm start, which means this…
