    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 […]

    Travis Zajac Gets Locked Out Of The Penalty Box At MSG (Video)

    The New Jersey Devils’ penalty-kill has struggled mightily during the post-season.  They have killed only 72.2% of their penalties, giving them the worst penalty-kill among the eight playoff teams that advanced to the second-round of the playoffs.  As a result, you’d expect them to do everything in their power to stay out of the box […]

    DJ Porter Remixes John Tortorella’s Post-Game Press Conferences (Video)

    New York Rangers coach John Tortorella isn’t known for being a particularly floral speaker. His terse, straightforward answers may not give reporters much to work with in terms of insight or context, but the simplistic nature of his responses lend themselves very well to the remix treatment courtesy of DJ Steve Porter. DJ Steve Porter […]

    Dancin’ Larry Was Bustin’ A Move At MSG Last Night (Video)

    I’ve always wondered where NHL arenas came up with the rule that prohibits the sale of alcohol following the start of the third period.  Apparently, former Rangers goaltender and current CBC ice-level commentator Glenn Healy has found the answer to that question, and his name is Dancin’ Larry. Dancin’ Larry was all revved up for […]

    Brandon Dubinsky Takes His Anger Out On A Gatorade Cooler (Video)

    During Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series between the New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators, Brandon Dubinsky was incensed by the sight of teammate Brian Boyle taking a face full of punches from the Sens’ Matt Carkner.  That caused the Rangers’ forward to unleashed his anger on the face of Carkner with […]

    Fights And Cheap Shots Mar This Weekend’s NHL Playoff Action (Videos)

    For the past two years I have chosen to discontinue the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” segment during the NHL playoffs because as many of us already know, fights rarely, if ever, take place during the post-season.  However, that has been far from the case during the 2012 NHL playoffs.  In fact, all of […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Heading into Sunday’s game between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, Michael Haley and Stu Bickel had dropped the gloves with one another twice during their hockey careers (once in the AHL and once in the NHL during an earlier meeting this season).  They wasted little time completing the trilogy, as the […]

    A Donald Trump Sighting At MSG For Rangers-Devils (Video)

    I’m not quite sure if Donald Trump actually enjoys the game of hockey, or if he simply thought Jeremy Lin and the Knicks were in town, but somehow he ended up at Madison Square Gardens last night to watch the New York Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils.  Thankfully, he was treated to a […]
