Ryane Clowe Goes To Rival Devils

It seems the Rangers aren’t the only ones who were willing to overpay for injured wing¬†Ryane Clowe. ¬†The Devils announced today that they have signed the former Rangers to a five year – $24.25M deal pretty right after the 12pm deadline passed. Clowe will get to see his former team plenty of times, providing he […]

The Silly Season Is Upon Us

New York placed veteran forwards Arron Asham and Darroll Powe on waivers yesterday, in the hopes that someone else will pick them up.  Both are in the final years of their respective contracts, with Powe at $1.06M and Asham and $1M in terms of salary cap.  Neither forward has particularly impressed in a Rangers uniform, although Asham did at […]

Disagreements Caused Richards Decision

If you’re wondering what exactly the Rangers were thinking when they decided to keep Richards, then you’re not alone.  The general consensus outside the Rangers was to buy-out the veteran center who has seven more seasons remaining on his nine year contract. Within the Rangers hierarchy, it appears it may not have been quite so […]

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 […]

Injuries Shaping Both Teams

The Rangers go into tonight’s game once again missing the services of Marc Staal, Ryane Clowe and Darroll Powe.  The trio played in just a one, two and three games respectively in the Capitals series, with all three missing the final two wins. For Boston, things are a little more unsettled.  Brad Marchand will play after injuring himself in […]

It’s Okay To Be Optimistic

Rangers fans could be forgiven to be pessimistic.  The franchise has won only one Cup in the past 72 seasons, and has missed the playoffs 13 times in the past 40 years.  They have a losing record in the playoffs – wins/losses – against each of the other original six teams, and didn’t secure a […]

Game 7 Experience

The Rangers go into tonight’s deciding Game 7 in D.C. with a 1-10 record in the last 11 games played in the Capitals’ home building.  That solitary victory was the triple OT game last year, which was finally ended by Marian Gaborik.  If the Blueshirts are to advance, they’re going to have to overcome that record, […]

Could Clowe Be Close To Playing?

There was plenty to highlight in last night’s loss, but it ultimately came down to another sub-par night from special teams, a defensive lapse and a poor goal by Henrik Lundqvist, all in the second period. Back on the ice today, the Rangers will now look towards evening the series tomorrow afternoon, when they face off […]

Rangers vs. Capitals – Your Final Matchup

The Rangers and Capitals finally kickoff their Eastern Conference Quarter Final Series at the Verizon Center, Washington D.C. tonight, 7:30pm Eastern on NBC Sports Network and MSG.  The players on both sides are more than ready, and while the two teams have met three of the last four years in the playoffs, there’s no real […]

Notes From Practice

The Rangers head off to D.C. later today, as they continue their preparation for tomorrow’s Game 1 match-up with the Capitals.  All four injured players will make the trip with the team, although none are expected to be in the line-up tomorrow. Brian Boyle and Ryane Clowe remain off the ice, while Derek Dorsett is still yet to get clearance […]
