Multiple Changes Tonight?

The Rangers go into tonight’s Game 4 with Boston looking a little different than they have in the previous three games.  Anton Stralman will be out with an injury suffered in a Milan Lucic hit during Game 3, and will likely be replaced by veteran Roman Hamrlik, who will be playing in his team leading 112th NHL […]

Marc Staal Back – Kind Of

After playing in Game 3, Marc Staal was a surprising scratch in Game 4.  The only news we had was Ryan McDonagh saying that he felt Staal’s decision to take himself out of the line-up for the good of the team was a brave one. Staal further missed the optional skate yesterday, but did return to the ice today, […]

Game 4 – By The Stats

How important is game 4 in deciding a series? The answer is, it depends on your point of reference. Since the 2004-05 lockout season, the team that has won game four of a seven game series in the NHL, has gone on to win 55 of the 74 series, just over 71 percent of the […]

Game 5 Is Alive

An independent observer of the Rangers-Penguins Eastern Conference Semifinal series could easily jump to the conclusion that the Rangers have been thoroughly outclassed in this series, and that a win for Pittsburgh on Sunday is all but a foregone conclusion. After all, the Rangers lost an almost unlosable game in Game 1 when they gave […]

Still Alive

With their backs to the wall, it was a case of win or go home for the Rangers last night. The mantra in the lockerroom before the game…just avoid the sweep and earn the right to play one more game. Jaromir Jagr and Henrik Lundqvist were instrumental in leading the Rangers to a 3-0 win, keeping alive their season, for at least one more game. Jagr turned back the clock and scored two […]

Rangers Win 3-1 – Go Up 3-1

Two days after seeing the puck deflect into his own net off his skate, Marc Staal gained redemption, scoring the game winner to put the Rangers in a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Devils. Staal appeared to carry no baggage from the Sunday loss, leading Jagr to joke after the game that the rookie defenseman didn’t know he scored Sunday, and probably didn’t know he […]

Looking To Rebound In Game 4

Game four is tonight (7:00pm – MSG, VS) which means once again that most of you living outside the NY metro region will once again have to put up with the Versus broadcast. If you wondering why the Devils won in Game 3? Well apparently it’s because former Ranger draft pick and current Devils defenseman shaved his […]
