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…

Rangers dominate Senators, clinch playoff berth

The New York Rangers crushed the red hot Ottawa Senators last night, clinching a playoff berth in the process with the Boston Bruins loss to Anaheim.

The Kings completely shut down the Rangers, clogging skating lanes and neutralizing the Rangers best weapon –speed– and forced the Blueshirts to play a slower, more methodical game.

Rangers sneak past Hurricanes in shootout

The New York Rangers made us sweat last night, escaping Carolina with a 3-2 shootout win over the Hurricanes. It was the third time that the Rangers had gone to the shootout with the Canes in the five game regular season series, and last night’s win gave the Rangers a season series sweep of the woeful Canes. But this game…

Richards, Darling hand Rangers first regulation loss in March

Scott Darling stopped 25 shots for his first career shutout and Brad Richards scored the game’s only goal as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the New York Rangers 1-0. Cam Talbot made 30 saves, many of them difficult, in the loss, but it wasn’t enough as the Rangers failed to solve Darling throughout the game. The Rangers had one goal called…

Talbot steals one over Florida as Hunwick, Sheppard net first goals as Rangers

The New York Rangers didn’t play their best game last night. They didn’t play their prettiest game last night. They looked like a team that was on the second of a back-to-back after a tough run against five playoff teams. But yet, they still found a way to beat the Florida Panthers in regulation by a score of 2-1. Cam…

Skapski gets first shutout, Rangers blank Sabres

There is no goal breakdown or recap from last night, sorry folks. I’m in Disney, and everyone else had weddings, birthdays, and work related activities that prevented them from watching the game. Mackenzie Skapski stopped all 20 shots he faced en route to his first shutout of his career. Keith Yandle scored his first goal as a Ranger as well….
