Metro Division Finals Game Three: Best of five

A strong first period, complete with stretch passes and a competent forecheck, helped the Rangers even the series on Saturday afternoon. Now the series shifts to Washington for Games Three and Four, and the Blueshirts find themselves in a familiar situation. Heading away from home with the series tied. This happened last round, and the Rangers won three in a row…

Metro Division Finals Game Two: Rebound quickly in matinee

A questionable hit, a massive brain fart, and Joel Ward all combined to give the Washington Capitals the 1-0 series lead on Thursday night. The Caps and Rangers are at it again this afternoon in a 12:30 matinee at MSG, looking to avoid going down 2-0 before headed to D.C. The Rangers played the Caps’ game in the first two…

Metro Division Finals Game One: Start off strong at home

After easily dispatching of the Pittsburgh Penguins in five games, the New York Rangers open up the second round of the playoffs at home against a familiar opponent in the Washington Capitals. But these aren’t the same old Caps teams of the past, focused on offense only with no defense. This is a physically brutal team that will try to…

Metro Division Semis Game Five: Close it out at home

The Rangers and Penguins are at it again tonight, with the Rangers looking to close out the series at home. Kevin Hayes gave the Rangers a 3-1 series lead on Wednesday with his overtime winner, and with the Penguins finally starting to get healthy, it would behoove the Rangers to just end this now. The Pens still have to go…

Metro Division Semis Game Four: Rangers at Penguins

The Rangers and Penguins are back at it tonight for Game Four of their series. The Rangers took a 2-1 series lead with a 2-1 win on Monday night, and will hopefully take a commanding lead in the series tonight. The Pens still have to go without Kris Letang, Olli Maata, Derick Pouliot, Christian Ehrhoff, and Pascal Dupuis, all give have…

Metro Division Semis Game Three: Rangers at Penguins

The Rangers and Penguins are back at it tonight for Game Three of their series. The Penguins evened the series on Saturday night, and the story of that game was the Rangers inefficient powerplay. They went just one-for-seven in that game, and it presumably has cost them the series already. In all seriousness, the powerplay is a concern, but this…

Metro Division Semis Game Two: Penguins at Rangers

The Rangers and Penguins are back at it tonight for Game Two of their series. The Rangers took Game One by a score of 2-1 in a surprisingly undisciplined game by the Penguins. In typical Ranger fashion, the Blueshirts ignored the shenanigans, played their game, and took Game One. The Rangers seem to play better when their opponent plays foolishly…

This series is a rematch of last year’s Metro Division Finals, when the Rangers won three straight to beat the Pens in seven. The Pens are dealing with some major injuries to Kris…

Game 82: Two good teams in a meaningless game

The New York Rangers have clinched the President’s Trophy and home ice advantage throughout the playoffs. The Washington Capitals have a date with the New York Islanders in the first round. Home ice in that round isn’t clinched for the Caps, a win of any form would clinch, but I don’t think that’s on their minds at the moment. The…

Game 81: Meaningless game #1 against Ottawa

Well, the New York Rangers are playing host to the Ottawa Senators in what is essentially a meaningless game for the Rangers. Home ice is clinched, so now the priority shifts to getting guys healthy while ensuring bad habits don’t develop. Ryan Bourque and Chris Summers have been called up, and Rick Nash and Marc Staal will be sitting tonight….
