Game 68: Pad the lead in Florida

After winning last night in Buffalo, the Rangers have won four in a row and five of their last six, including a 4-0-1 run against five teams that will be in the playoffs come April. All that has led to a three point lead on the Islanders with four games in hand. One of those games in hand is tonight…

Game 67: Keep winning against Buffalo

The Rangers face life without Kevin Klein for the first time tonight, as they are in Buffalo to take on the woeful Sabres. This Sabres team is actually trying to tank, and doing a bang-up job there. As you’ll see in this game preview, I just don’t even know who the Sabres dress anymore. The Rangers, meanwhile, went 4-0-1 against…

Game 66: Reclaim first place in Washington

Fresh off an emotional win last night on Long Island, the New York Rangers are in DC to take on the Washington Capitals. The Caps are the fifth straight playoff team the Rangers will face, and they’ve gone 3-0-1 in that span, which is pretty impressive. With the Rangers on the second of back-to-backs, the first time Talbot has played…

Game 65: Potential Nassau Coliseum finale

The New York Rangers are on Long Island tonight to take on the New York Islanders in what could be the last game played between these two clubs at the Nassau Coliseum. There is no guarantee these two meet in the playoffs, as it appears that both teams will need to win their first round series in order to meet…

The New York Rangers are in Chicago tonight to take on the always tough Blackhawks in a game that will pit Brad Richards against his former team for the first time since the Rangers bought him out this offseason.

Game 63: Tough schedule continues in Detroit

March is a rough month for the New York Rangers, with their first five games of the month coming against teams that will make the playoffs. They got off to a good start, dominating the NHL’s best Predators on Monday, and now look to continue that strong play in Detroit against the Red Wings. Detroit was supposed to be in…

Game 62: Revamped Rangers begin push against Nashville

The stretch run for the New York Rangers begins tonight, as one of the league’s best in the Nashville Predators come to town. The Rangers were the biggest players at the trade deadline, acquiring Keith YandleĀ and James Sheppard, while shipping out Lee Stempniak. Both Yandle and Sheppard will have a positive effect on the Rangers lineup. The Preds were busy…

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 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…

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…
