The Season Is Dead, Long Live The Season

With just three wins in their last thirteen, and just three weeks or so to the trade deadline, it looks as if the Rangers are about to embark on something they’ve never really done in modern times: cash in now in order to help rebuild for the future. A slow start to the season, followed […]

Opening Night

Overall the Rangers are 38-38-13-1 in opening night games dating back to their NHL debut back in 1926-27.  They currently sit on a three game winning streak, having beaten the Islanders 5-3 last season, Chicago 3-2 the previous year, and the Blues by a similar 3-2 margin back in 2014-15. The three game streak is the third longest in franchise history […]

Four More Cut

Four more players were cut today, bringing the Rangers training camp roster down to 34, with a minimum of 10 cuts still to be made – assuming Jesper Fast goes on LTIR.  The team will likely see more cuts tomorrow after tonight’s game against the Flyers – MSG 7:30pm, ahead of their final preseason game on Tuesday. […]

Day Sent Down

The Rangers announced three more cuts to the training camp roster today, leaving 46 players remaining heading into tonight’s game against the Islanders.  Perhaps a modest surprise is the inclusion of defenseman Sean Day as one of the three.   Day was yet to be rostered to play a preseason game, and has plenty of competition for […]

Bereglazov To Make Debut

Russian free agent signing, Alexei Bereglazov will make his Rangers debut tonight against the New York Islanders.  He, gotaltender Chris Nell and forward Malte Stromwall will see their first action of the preseason ahead of tomorrow’s anticipated second round of roster cuts. Signed out of the KHL, where he’s spent the past four years with the Magnitogorsk team, Bereglazov was initially […]

Projected Line-up Against Devils

Both of the Rangers’ 2017 first round picks will be in the line-up for Game 2 tonight against the Devils.  Filip Chytil – pronounced HEE-tal – looks to have earned a chance to show his offensive prowess, centering veterans Mats Zuccarello and Chris Kreider. Having just turned 18, Chytil will be thrust into the forefront in his first professional […]

Lineup Set For Preseason Opener

The Rangers go into tomorrow’s preseason opener against the Islanders with a very inexperienced line-up.  Only 14 of the 20 players have NHL experience including try-outs Andrew Desjardins and Bobby Farnham.  Of the 14, only 6 were regulars with the Rangers last year including Pavel Buchnevich, Michael Grabner, Nick Holden, Ryan McDonagh, J.T. Miller and Rick Nash.  Veteran AHLers Cole Schneider and Paul Carey will get […]
