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 Rangers lost in a shootout last night to the Vancouver Canucks in their second straight poor defensive showing. In fact, the Rangers have allowed three or more…

Game 56: Continue the winning streak against Vancouver

The New York Rangers are back at MSG tonight to take on the Vancouver Canucks, looking to extend their winning streak to five games in a row. The Rangers have really stepped it up a notch without Henrik Lundqvist, putting up at least five goals in their last four games, and going 5-1-1 with Talbot in net (6-1-1 in February)….

Rangers rally for three straight goals, sink Isles

Well this sure was an entertaining game. 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…

Game 54: Finish the western road trip with a win against the Coyotes

The New York Rangers tonight are in Glendale to take on the Arizona Coyotes, as they look to make it three in a row against pretty bad teams. The issue though, is that the Rangers, while still putting up W’s, aren’t really playing that well. Yea, they beat Colorado, and they beat Toronto, but both of those wins were ugly,…

Game 53: Continue beating bad teams in Colorado

After barely squeaking out a win in Toronto, the Rangers are in Denver tonight to take on the Colorado Avalanche. The Avs┬ásit in last place in the Central Division after making the playoffs last season. This isn’t that surprising, as most #fancystats folks predicted a monumental fall from grace, which was followed up by multiple humorous attempts to grab their…

Toronto Maple Leafs took on the New York Rangers at the Air Canada Centre

Game 52: Easy stretch starts in Toronto

The New York Rangers have a stretch of three games against pretty easy opponents, and the first of them is the Toronto Maple Leafs. Of course, it’s funny because the Rangers have lost twice to Toronto, but it’s all about when you play your opponent. The Leafs were off to a ridiculously hot start and the Rangers were off to…

Game 51: Rebound against Dallas

The New York Rangers played very well yesterday afternoon against one of the best teams in the entire league, but came away with a loss. Today, they will take on a Dallas Stars team that was the offseason winner, but it hasn’t translated on the ice. Poor goaltending has done them in, as they’ve allowed a whopping 170 goals this…

Game 50: Life without Hank starts in Nashville

The New York Rangers are officially without All World goalie Henrik Lundqvist for at least a month, after taking a puck to the throat last weekend against Carolina. Technically their first game without Hank was Wednesday against the Bruins, but today against the Nashville Predators marks the first game since the announcement. Cam Talbot will start against the Preds, who…

Game 49: Gotta find a way to beat the Bruins

The New York Rangers have won two in a row in games they probably didn’t deserve to win against mediocre opponents. Tonight they face one of their fellow playoff teams in the Boston Bruins, a team that has given them fits for a while now. Some blame it on the Bs size, I blame it on their stifling defense and…
