McIlrath, Hrivik, Lindberg, Haggerty cut

Per Andrew Gross, Dylan McIlrath, Marek Hrivik, Ryan Haggerty, and Oscar Lindberg did not survive training camp, and have been assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack. All of them had strong camps, but it became a numbers game after a while. All four will get big minutes in Hartford instead of sitting in the press box with the Rangers. It’s…

Miller. Hayes is…

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…

Preseason Game 5: Blackhawks at Rangers

The roster is beginning to take shape, and the competition for those final roster spots is heating up. It feels like there are ten players fighting for a handful of spots, and each performance in the preseason will determine who makes the club and who “dies and gets sent to the minors” (thanks good ole Jake Taylor of the Cleveland…

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…

Preseason Game 4: Rangers at Flyers

The Rangers are in Philadelphia on the back-end of this home-and-home with the Flyers.  Last night the Rangers tore through the Flyers, who dressed an AHL lineup for the most part. This time around the roles are reversed, as the Rangers are dressing the AHL squad. Should be interesting to see how the kids do without NHL talent flanking them. The…

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…
