Bruins Shutout Rangers On Rainy Night

The New York Rangers opened their preseason tonight with a 3-0 loss in Boston.

Three Ways Hajek Starts The Season

Here’s a question for you:  What if Libor Hajek ends up as the sixth defenseman on opening night, beating out both Zac Jones and Matthew Robertson.  What if the guy who had poorer advanced stats than Patrik Nemeth and Jack Johnson, ends up being the one they go to first? I mean it kind of happened last year right?  They dressed Jarred […]
