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. Discipline was the issue for the Sabres, as they took three penalties in a 1:20 span, and the Rangers scored on all three opportunities. The fourth goal, this one…

Rangers end year on high note with win in Florida

Chris Kreider, Ryan McDonagh, and Martin St. Louis contributed a goal and an assist apiece while Derek Stepan had three assists.

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…

Ok I’m going to level with you guys. By now you’ve noticed the new design, and I really hope you guys like it. As I write this, it is 2am.

Rangers come from behind in Carolina, make it five in a row

I wasn’t able to watch last night’s game, but the Rangers came from behind twice in the third period before beating Carolina in the shootout. The win gave the Rangers five in a row. I did watch the highlights, and the first Carolina goal came off a bad pass from Kevin Hayes. The first Ranger goal was a beautiful powerplay…

Rangers steamroll Flames, extend winning streak to four

The New York Rangers took everything the Calgary Flames gave them, which was odd-man rushes, turnovers, and facepalm moments that turned into goals. The Rangers jumped out to a 4-0 lead, scoring twice at even strength, once on the powerplay, and once shorthanded, en route to a 5-2 win. The Rangers weren’t perfect, surrendering a lot of shots and exchanging…

Rangers win snooze-fest in Edmonton

Last night’s game was an absolute snooze-fest. The Rangers came in knowing they were playing a bad team, and the Oilers came in just like the bad team they are. The teams combined for just 38 shots on goal, which was probably less than the number of icings we saw in this game. Neither team came prepared to play, there…

Rangers roll through Canucks with offensive outburst

The New York Rangers started off their western road trip with an incredibly convincing 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks last night.  The Rangers blitzed the Canucks for five straight goals, including the first three of the game in a four-minute span. The Canucks gave the Rangers way too much room int he neutral zone, and the Rangers took every…

Rangers blow another two goal lead, come out with victory in OT (Goal breakdown now with GIFs!)

The New York Rangers sure are a weird team. They put up a giant oh-fer against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but in three games against the Pittsburgh Penguins, they are 2-0-1 and were almost 3-0. This is a team that blew another two goal lead, but didn’t let it get to them as Kevin Klein –again– was able win it in…
