Rangers finally score a few, beat Columbus to right the ship

The New York Rangers righted the ship, beating the Columbus Blue Jackets by a score of 2-1. This was a game that the Rangers really didn’t deserve to win, but Henrik Lundqvist was absolutely outstanding, and stole this game for the good guys. Hank made 35 saves –most of them spectacular, when you look at the shot location chart– to…

GIFs: Rangers beat San Jose, sweep second west coast swing

I’m still sick, so I wasn’t up to watch the game. Luckily Steph (@myregularface) made GIFs for some of the goals, so I can still link to those. The game looked to be a solid defensive effort, with the top-six forwards providing the scoring. This win makes it five in a row, and 13 of their last fourteen. MSL’S Goal:…

Rangers light up Buffalo in laugher

The New York Rangers showed no mercy against the woeful Buffalo Sabres last night, lighting them up for five straight goals –three on the powerplay– en route to their 6-1 win.

Rangers winning streak ends in Dallas

Well the winning streak had to come to an end at some point. I said in the preview that I was worried about this game, and it wound up coming true. Dallas is a very talented team that at least appears to be getting their defense in order. They limited New York’s ability to transition in the neutral zone and…
