Capitals at Rangers

Game 32: Divisional showdown against Washington

After winning six in a row against some bad teams, the New York Rangers will host the Washington Capitals tonight in what will likely be a divisional showdown throughout the remainder of the season. With the Pens and Isles seemingly comfortable with their 1-2 positions in the division, it’s the Rangers and Caps who will fight for that final non-wildcard…

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,…

Game 30: Carolina isn’t good, make it five in a row

The New York Rangers are back on the east coast tonight, taking on the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh. The Rangers swept their three-game trip out west, extending their winning streak to four 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, and this is…

Game 29: Build on the winning streak in Calgary

The Rangers are in Calgary tonight to take on the Flames and potentially expand their winning streak to four in a row, including a three game sweep against the Western Canadian teams. After a hot start, with equally hot goaltending from Jonas Hiller, the Flames have crashed back down to Earth, losers of six in a row. That said, the…

Game 28: Build momentum in Edmonton

After a convincing 5-1 win last night in Vancouver, the Rangers are in Edmonton to take on the woeful Oilers. The Oilers are 1-8-1 in their last ten, but somehow managed to beat our Rangers at MSG last month. So despite their terrible record and the fact that they hemorrhage goals, they have enough talent to put together good games….

Game 27: Lines shaken up in Vancouver

The New York Rangers have shaken up their lines for tonight’s late night extravaganza against the Vancouver Canucks. Tanner Glass is out, Chris Kreider is on the fourth line, and J.T. Miller will be on the second line with Martin St. Louis and Derek Stepan. We’ve been calling for Glass to sit for a while, so let’s hope it pays…

Game 26: Home whites against depleted Penguins

The New York Rangers will be wearing their home whites tonight when the Pittsburgh Penguins come to town, and it will be a heavily depleted Penguins team that comes to town. The Pens will be without three of their top five scorers (Hornqvist, Kunitz, Letang), another top-four defenseman (Maata), and another top-six winger (Dupuis). If there was ever a time…

Game 25: Talbot looks for third straight in Detroit

Cam Talbot will be in net tonight, looking for his third straight win and third straight shutout in Detroit, as the New York Rangers take on the Red Wings. The Rangers are fresh off a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay, their third in a month, but are 6-0-1 in games where they haven’t played the Lightning, so that’s always a…

Game 24: Stop treating Cally like royalty, show you can beat Tampa Bay

It seems like the New York Rangers have only played two teams over the past two weeks: the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tonight those Lightning are in town, and are 2-0 against the good guys. The second effort was much better than the tire fire that was the first game, and this will be the first time the…

Game 23: Aim for the home-and-home sweep

After their 3-0 blanking of the Flyers yesterday afternoon, the Rangers are back home hosting those same Flyers on the back-end of a home-and-home. It’s been a while since the Rangers have played a home-and-home on back-to-back nights (usually there’s a day off between), and the Rangers could really help themselves out with another win over a division opponent. The…
