Rangers-Penguins Game One Recap

Note: I apologize for the late post here, somebody (raises hand) fell asleep right after the game and had to write this in the morning. The Rangers opened the 2015 playoffs in probably the most assuring way possible. 28 seconds into the game, Derick Brassard let one rip through the legs of Marc-Andre Fleury, easing any fear that fans could…

Desperate Senators shutout Rangers

The Ottawa Senators kept their playoff hopes alive, at least temporarily, by shutting out the Rangers at MSG 3-0 last night. The Rangers didn’t just sit back and let Ottawa win, they actually played a good game. Ottawa just had that desperation that the Rangers simply don’t have. It is what it is, and while this game wasn’t painful to…

Rangers clinch President’s Trophy with win over Devils

The New York Rangers are your 2014-2015 President’s Trophy winners. The game against the New Jersey Devils wasn’t pretty, especially in the second when Jordin Tootoo decided he wanted to be in the WWE, but the Ranger persevered, ignored the shenanigans, and came away with the two points. This was pure domination for the Rangers in the first two periods…

Rangers rebound with key win in Winnipeg

After two very sloppy games over the weekend, the New York Rangers came into Winnipeg and beat a desperate Jets team in regulation to right the ship. Henrik Lundqvist allowed one softie, but stopped 32 of 34 shots for his first win since his injury. He was rusty, and some of his positioning and rebound control showed it, but in…

More sloppy play leads to Rangers defeat by Capitals

The New York Rangers played their second straight sloppy game, constantly turning the puck over to a dangerous Washington Capitals team en route to a 4-2 defeat. This was another classic “if you don’t protect the puck, you won’t win” game from the Rangers. New York did a great job of limiting attempts –both in quality and in quantity– by…

Sloppy Rangers get what they deserved in loss to Bruins

The Rangers gave away two points today. The Rangers self destructed in their own zone with countless turnovers, poor coverage and the third line aside, the first period can best be described as sloppy. While Henrik Lundqvist looked rusty to begin, the turnovers and general play in front of him left a lot to be desired all game long. Let’s…
