Game 36: Start a new streak against Buffalo

The New York Rangers had their eight game winning streak snapped in Dallas last week, but rebounded nicely in Sunrise against the Panthers. Tonight they face the woeful Buffalo Sabres, at home, on the tail-end of back-to-backs. That’s a pretty sweet scenario for the Rangers. So naturally, tonight is a trap game. The Sabres don’t possess many offensive weapons, they…

Game 35: End the year right in Florida

The Rangers end the 2014 calendar year tonight in Miami, taking on the surprisingly decent Florida Panthers. The Cats have 41 points in 34 games –one point behind the Rangers– but have done so with nine loser points, tops in the league. Much of this has to do with the brilliance of Roberto Luongo, who seems to have re-discovered his…

Game 34: Stay red hot in Dallas

The New York Rangers are now winners of eight in a row. Tonight they look to make it nine in a row in Dallas, taking on a very talented Stars team. Despite the obvious talent up front, Dallas has been undone by awful goaltending and a porous defense. Only two teams –Edmonton and Buffalo, both lottery teams– have allowed more…

Game 33: Keep rolling against the hydra-coached Devils

The NHL season is back upon us following a three-day hiatus for the holiday. Tonight, the Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils in an attempt to make it eight straight wins and put some distance between them and the Caps. It hasn’t all been pretty during this seven game streak, but the Rangers have found ways to get W’s,…

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…
