Is This The Year?

Last season exceeded our expectations by some margin.  52 wins, career years for a number of Rangers – including 52 goals by Chris Kreider, along with the Vezina winning performance in net from Igor Shesterkin, were all components of a very enjoyable campaign last season.  Then a post season run that saw them ultimately exit in the […]

Day 2 – Team C Wins Scrimmage

The second day of training camp is in the books, and the Rangers continue to conduct a scrimmage in the morning, followed by on-ice work later in the day.  Today’s fixture featured Team A, with the Zibanejad line, against Team C and the Kid Line. As with yesterday’s match-up with Team A and B, today’s […]

It Makes Some Sort Of Cents

How would you feel if the Rangers traded 22 year old Filip Chytil?  What about if former second overall pick Kaapo Kakko was traded?  What if they both get traded?  Because that could be very well where we’re heading this Summer as the Rangers look to compete for the Cup now, and do so with little Salary Cap […]

Experience v Youth

Experience, depth, defense, goaltending, physical play…there’s a lot of things that pundits attribute success in the playoffs to.  The Stanley Cup can be won in as few as 16 games, or as many as 28.  It’s a grind, a war of attrition to see who will have the opportunity to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup at […]

Chytil Back. Kravtsov to Come Over In Summer

After missing the last two games with an undisclosed upper body injury, Filip Chytil is set to return to the line-up.  Who comes out, remains to be seen, but Barclay Goodrow perhaps gets the night off after taking a stick to the face, or perhaps one of Dryden Hunt or Ryan Reaves. Alexandar Georgiev¬†will be back in net, and currently has a […]

Strome Misses Practice

Center Ryan Strome missed today’s morning practice, raising speculation that he will not play tonight in Pittsburgh.  Strome left Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres after the first periiod, with an undisclosed lower body injury.  Asked after the game, Head Coach Gerard Gallant said he didn’t see anything serious. No further updates have been provided on Strome’s […]

Rangers Pass A Test

Three minutes and fifty seconds into last night’s matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ryan Reaves took a holding penalty.  It was the second penalty they’d taken, and the Rangers were already down 2-0, thanks to a converted turnover from the stick of Ryan Lindgren, and a conversion of an offensive zone penalty to Chris Kreider. To say the […]

Rooney and Lindgren Return

The Rangers returned from the Holiday break with a number of players in COVID protocol, and they are finally starting to get some of those back.  Alexandar Georgiev returned to back up Igor Shesterkin in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Tampa, and now Ryan Lindgren and Kevin Rooney are set to rejoin the line-up. Lindgren is expected to slot back in with Adam Fox, while […]

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 […]
