Thoughts on a lazy Friday morning

Good morning, BSB faithful. I scrapped my whole intro because it was terrible and I haven’t had enough caffeine, yet. So, here are some Ranger-related thoughts to kick off your Friday… The whole “goalie controversy” thing is already getting old. Dave touched on it already, so I don’t have much too much to add. Basically, no one is saying that…

Musing the Rangers: when things go cold

The Rangers are in a scoring funk. It’s probably is a mere statistical regression and no long term concern but it’s certainly noteworthy. On the back of a shutout loss to the Blackhawks Wednesday there’s plenty to talk about. So let us muse. How ridiculous is it to begin this post with a complaint? The Rangers have a ridiculously good…

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…

Tonight, the New York Rangers look to extend their winning streak to six games –and sweep the season series against the Chicago Blackhawks– tonight at MSG when the Hawks come to town. The Rangers defeated the Hawks 1-0 just five games ago, in overtime, thanks largely to Cam Talbot’s 29 saves. The Hawks are the first game in a run…

There is no goalie controversy for the Rangers

When the New York Rangers announced that goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been cleared to return to practice, most of the Ranger Twitter-verse united in cheers of “WOOHOO!” But a few people stated that the Rangers now have a goalie controversy.

Scouting potential wild card opponents

With a five-point lead and four games in hand on the second-place Islanders as well as a seven-point lead and two games in hand on the banged up Penguins, it’s looking more and more likely that the Rangers will win the Metro Division. If the Blueshirts do manage to hang on to their lead, they could face one of four Atlantic Division…

Henrik Lundqvist cleared to practice

In some very good news, goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been cleared to practice by team doctors. Lundqvist, who has been out for the past six weeks with a vascular injury suffered after taking a puck to the throat, will likely need some practice time before getting back into a game. The Rangers will also be in no rush to get…

Assessing JT Miller’s latest Rangers opportunity

The next two weeks may tell us a lot more about JT Miller’s future. With Marty St Louis out injured for up to eight games the opportunity for JT Miller to really show his worth to Alain Vigneault has never been greater. Whether Miller gets moved up to the second line or Kevin Hayes goes from third line center to…

Managing the Martin St. Louis injury

With Martin St. Louis out 10-14 days with a knee injury, the New York Rangers find themselves needing to weather the storm while he heals. We can debate the argument over whether St. Louis needed the rest or not, but the point remains that the Rangers will need to find a way to deal with a top-six forward out of…
