Game 70: Rebound in Carolina

The New York Rangers are in Raleigh tonight to take on the Carolina Hurricanes in an attempt to rebound following their first regulation loss in the month of March. 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…

Game 69: Another rough road starts against Chicago

Tonight, the New York Rangers look to extend their winning streak to six games –and sweep the season series against the Chicago Blackhawks– tonight at MSG when the Hawks come to town. The Rangers defeated the Hawks 1-0 just five games ago, in overtime, thanks largely to Cam Talbot’s 29 saves. The Hawks are the first game in a run…

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.

Game 63: Tough schedule continues in Detroit

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 Yandle¬†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…
