This week’s combines the last two, since I completely forgot last week’s. I have a reminder in my phone now. Back to weekly confidence polls now.
Record Last Two Weeks (Monday to Sunday): 5-3-0 (26 GF, 20 GA)
Season Record: 30-24-4 (188 GF, 179 GA)
Schedule This Week: @ CHI, @ CAR, vs SJ
Top stories from the last two weeks:
- The Rangers went 5-3-0 in the past two weeks, including an impressive four game win streak.
- Trade Rumors: There are still a lot of trade rumblings on Chris Kreider, Jesper Fast, and Alex Georgiev. Too many posts to list, so you can see them all here.
- Buyout Rumors: There has been a lot of chatter about a potential Henrik Lundqvist buyout. I think it is relatively irresponsible to do so. But guest poster Brandon Cohen thinks it is a good idea.
- Ryan Lindgren has quietly become one of the more steady presences on the blue line.
- It is very hard to ignore the improving Rangers, especially as the goaltending is coming back and they are starting to get wins.
- The Rangers may be forced to choose between Tony DeAngelo and Jacob Trouba, who has a NMC kicking in this summer.
- Injury Updates: Tony DeAngelo remains out with “a banged up.” It’s expected he will be ready to go on Wednesday.
- Hartford Wolf Pack Update: The Pack went 3-1 in the last two weeks, closing out January with three strong wins. Becky and Rob made the trek to Hartford to watch them in person. The Pack are now 26-11-4-5 and are still atop the Atlantic Division, with two games in hand on the Hershey Bears. They are second in the conference, one point behind Belleville (with a game in hand) and third in the AHL. No one is catching Milwaukee.
- Site Updates: We are going to try to channel Hunter S. Thompson a little more around here. Plus we launched a new commenting system.
