Who’s On First?

Currently on a career best equaling four game point streak – with four assists – Alexis Lafreniere today practiced on a line with Filip Chytil and Barclay Goodrow, or as it’s more commonly known, the third line. It’s not a configuration that has beenused really this year, and like many of the third lines used this season, feels very much […]

Kreider Could Break Two Franchise Records

We all know that Chris Kreider is having a career year.  Prior to this season, his career high was 28 goals, and 53 points, and he’s already blown past both those marks and still has 21 games remaining.  He’s also threatening to become just the fourth player in Rangers history to reach the 50 goal mark, following […]

NOTES: Are Deadline Calculations Changing?

When Kaapo Kakko dropped out of the line-up last month, an already weak position on the right wing got suddenly moreso.  The thought was, that the Rangers needed another top six winger to make a serious run this year at a Stanley Cup, capitalizing on career form from Igor Shesterkin, as well as Chris Kreider. As everyone knows, the […]

Chytil Looks Set To Return

Former first round pick, Filip Chyti looks set to return to the Rangers line-up as they face the St Louis Blues for the first time this season on Wednesday.  The 22 year old Czech was originally said to be “a little under the weather”, before being an outright scratch for Sunday’s 5-2 loss to the […]

Where There’s Smoke…

Report Card: 20 Games

Twenty games into the 2021-22 season, and the Rangers have started to find their game, improving their overall play as Igor Shesterkin and Adam Fox continue to lead the way.  The loss of Sammy Blais to an injury has lead to more ice time for the likes of Julien Gauthier and Dryden Hunt, and both players have shown some promising improvements. While most of […]

Report Card: After 10

Ten games into the season, 12.2% of the season completed, and the Rangers sit at 6-2-2, amongst the best in the league with 14 points.  On the surface it’s been a dream start for Rangers Head Coach Gerard Gallant, in that his team has put the wins up against teams it should beat, for the most […]

Rangers Not Offensive

So much for opening night fireworks right?  The vaunted toughening of Rangers looked more like the same old same old as we watched the re-tooled line-up get manhandled by Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals.  Well at least Tom Wilson didn’t get up to any mischief I guess. Well at least they’re hitting more right?  The […]

Line up Set For Season Opener

Rangers have forecast their line-up for tonight, with the exception of the goaltender – who will be shared during warm-ups.  With a game tomorrow night, it would seem the expectation currently is to use one guy tonight, and the other tomorrow at the home opener against Dallas. In terms of surprises, there are none from […]

Possible Milestones This Season

With the season opener set for tonight in Washington, several Rangers look to hit new milestones this season, frontlined by the longest tenured Chris Kreider.  With his inclusion in the line-up tonight, Kreider looks to be just the 40th player to appear in 10 different regular season contests.  He is still some ways back of Rod Gilbert‘s […]
