Rangers defense fails again, lose third straight

The Rangers defense failed them again last night, as they fell to the Islanders 6-3. This was the second straight game that the Rangers allowed six goals, and have allowed a whopping 17(!) in the past three games. The Rangers, for most of the game, controlled the Islanders, but the Mike Kostka turnovers turned the entire game around. It’s unfair…

Rangers blown out in home opener loss to Leafs

Well that was a short-lived fun experience. With all the hype of the home opener on us, the Rangers laid an egg at home, falling to the Leafs by a score of 6-3. Five second period goals were the death of the Rangers after an even first period. The Blueshirts couldn’t climb out of a 4-1 hole, and trailed 6-2…

Rangers outplayed by shorthanded Blue Jackets, drop first of season

The Rangers followed up their strong effort in St. Louis with a relatively poor showing in Columbus, falling to the Blue Jackets by a score of 5-2. The Blue Jackets were able to take advantage of a lot of Ranger defensive zone breakdowns, and dominated the play for the most part. It’s worth noting that some were upset that the…

Top line makes a statement in win over St. Louis

How about that win by your New York Rangers? This was a hard fought game against one of the top teams in the West, and the Rangers found a way to answer back twice after tying goals from St. Louis. Lee Stempniak had a very strong debut game, but the big line had a big game. Rick Nash had a…

Rangers Drop Final Preseason Match to Devils

The Rangers squared off against the Devils for their final preseason game before the 2014-15 season. Unfortunately, this was a 3-0 loss. Even more unfortunately, Dave had a wedding so I had to watch this game. Before you read the important game notes I jotted down during the loss, keep in mind that there are still some roster spots to…

Ryan Malone’s redemption continues in shootout win

Boy that was a fun game to watch, wasn’t it? Ryan Malone is impressing a lot of people, myself included. We all know he was a solid 20 goal scorer, but after 11 goals over the past two seasons, he looked to be cooked. It’s still early, as Malone is still playing against some guys that will be in the…

Ranger-Pack gives Flyers a run for their money in loss

It’s amazing how the roles were reversed this game. On Monday the Flyers dressed an AHL squad and looked outmatched by the Rangers. Last night, the Rangers dressed an AHL squad but didn’t look outmatched. That’s a testament to the strong undrafted UFA signings and solid development of the kids. They had a bad second period, but were always in…

Kids dominate skeleton crew Flyers

The kids were at it again, taking it to a Flyers team that didn’t dress many starters. The Flyers are also in the middle of three games in three nights and four games in five nights, so there’s a fatigue and –since this is the preseason– lack of skill factor here as well. But it was still fun to watch…

More kids with strong games as Rangers down Hawks

Another game, another strong showing for the kids. J.T. Miller pretty much assured himself a spot on the opening night roster with another strong game. Anthony Duclair looked unreal. Marek Hrivik had a strong game. Oscar Lindberg scored a goal. Cedrick Desjardins played really well in the second half of the game. Conor Allen and Dylan McIlrath, while not exactly…

Kids impress in preseason loss to Devils

Well, the Rangers and Devils put on a show last night in a rare exciting preseason game. The Rangers lost on a pretty bad goal by Adam Henrique in the final minute, but wins and losses don’t really matter as much in the early going. I only got home in time for the third period, so my reaction points are…
