    Stat Line of the Night — 1/16/2014 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Henrik Lundqvist recorded two shutouts in the month of October, but he hasn’t been able to blank an opposing team since…Until last night. Lundqvist stood on his head throughout Thursday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings, stopping all 38 shots he faced during a 1-0 Rangers’ victory. With the win, the Rangers move one point […]

    This Day In Sports History (August 19th) — Guy LaFleur

    It was on this day in 1988 that the New York Rangers signed ex Montreal Canadiens superstar Guy LaFleur.  LaFleur came out of his four year retirement to join the Rangers on a one-year contract. From the 1974-75 season to the 1979-80 season, LaFleur was the NHL’s most productive player, amassing 50 goals and 100 […]

    This Day In Sports History (June 14th) — New York Rangers

    It was on this day in 1994 that the New York Rangers beat the Vancouver Canucks in game 7 to win the franchise’s fourth Stanley Cup.  This was the Rangers’ first championship since 1940, a span of 54 years. The 1993-94 season was a banner season for the New York Rangers.  In addition to winning […]

    According to New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella, Carl Hagelin stinks (on the powerplay, of course).  But on this play during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals at Madison Square Garden last night, Hagelin was only the second-stinkiest player involved. The first-stinkiest player involved would obviously have to be Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka […]

    Rangers’ Marc Staal Takes a Slap Shot to the Face (Video)

    Every player in the NHL knows that the possibility of taking a puck to the face is something that simply comes with the territory of playing the game they love for a living.  But that doesn’t make it any less painful or horrifying when it does happens.  For proof, look no further than last night’s […]

    Rick Nash Delivers ‘Assist of the Year’ Candidate (Video)

    Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks were early candidates for “Assist of the Year” honors when they each delivered their own behind-the-back passes, which set up goals by Jason Pominville and Marian Hossa, respectively, earlier in the season. Unfortunately for both Vanek and Kane, they have since been […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/5/2013 — David Clarkson

    Last night, the New York Rangers faced off against the New Jersey Devils for the first time since being eliminated by their bitter rivals during last year’s Eastern Conference Finals.  And while the Broadway Blueshirts had revenge on their mind, they probably should have also been thinking about a way to shut down David Clarkson. Unfortunately, they […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/23/2013 — Marian Gaborik

    The New York Rangers entered the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season with the highest of expectations after finishing atop the Eastern Conference standings last season and making it all the way to the Conference Finals before losing to the New Jersey Devils.  But despite those expectations, the Rangers kicked off the year with losses to the […]

    Henrik Lundqvist Wins Vezina, Drops The F-Bomb (Video)

    The F-Bombs certainly seem to be flying these days, but whether it is Dustin Brown or Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings experiencing the slight slip-of-the-tongue, or Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat, one thing remains the same in each of these instances; they always take place during moments of celebration. Last night, we […]
