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…

Game 57: Rebound in Buffalo

The New York Rangers are in Buffalo tonight to take on the woeful Sabres. This game is actually a makeup game from November 21, when Buffalo became Siberia for a few weeks.

The New York Rangers overcame three separate two-goal leads and scored three straight goals in the third period to beat the New York Islanders for the first time this season by a score of 6-5. Both Cam Talbot and Jaroslav Halak put on a clinic of how not to goalie, allowing a couple…
