    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Janssen vs. Rupp — 12/20/11

    When Cam Janssen wasn’t busy chasing down members of the opposition and landing head-over-heels in his own bench during last night’s game between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers, he was using his face to catch the fists of Rangers enforcer Michael Rupp. There were multiple enforcers from both teams on the […]

  • Tempers Flare Following Artem Anisimov’s Goal Celebration (Video)

    Tempers Flare Following Artem Anisimov’s Goal Celebration (Video)

    New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov was guilty of letting his emotions get the better of him following a short-handed goal last night, and the Tampa Bay players were guilty of much of the same following Anisimov’s ensuing celebration. After handing the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period, Anisimov turned towards Lightning goaltender […]

    Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Devastating Check On Mike Sauer (Video)

    Many NHLers will probably tell you that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf is one of the hardest hitters in the game.  After being on the receiving end of one of Phaneuf’s monstrous checks, I’m almost certain that Mike Sauer would agree. With time running out in the third period of last night’s game between […]

    Torts Fires Back at Sharks Captain Thornton (Video)

    San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton didn’t think much of his team’s performance in New York last night during a 5-2 loss, as he referred to the Rangers as “the softest team we played against” during the Sharks’ recent road trip.  For his part, Rangers head coach John Tortorella wasn’t impressed with Jumbo Joe’s comments.  […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/31/11 — Ryan Callahan

    The New York Rangers were in tough at home against the red-hot San Jose Sharks, but like any good captain, Ryan Callahan was there to lead his team to a big victory. The newly anointed captain of the Rangers entered the game with only three points – all goals – in his first nine games […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Glass — 10/24/11

    There was only one fight in the NHL last night, but it was a good one.  It came only a few minutes into a game between the New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets, as Brandon Prust and Tanner Glass exchanged punches for an action-packed 50 seconds of fisticuffs.  The Rangers and the Jets aren’t exactly […]

    John Tortorella Is Master Of The Post-Game Press Conference (Video)

    Following a 2-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night, New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella was not in the mood to discuss his team’s poor play.  So rather than stand around and answer question from the media regarding what went wrong and what needs to be fixed, he had the following to […]

    Brandon Dubinsky Tells The Canucks’ Bench To “Suck It” (Video)

    His team had just scored three goals in the third period to take a 3-0 lead, and moments later he was on the receiving end of a questionable hit from a frustrated Kevin Bieksa.  That left Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky with only one message for the Vancouver Canucks’ bench after being ejected following his ensuing […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 10/18/11 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/18/11 — Henrik Lundqvist

    With the Vancouver Canucks in search of their first home victory of the season and Ryan Kessler back in their line-up, the fans inside Rogers Arena were looking for an excuse to blow the lid off the place.  They wouldn’t get that excuse throughout the entire 60 minutes of last night’s game against the New […]

    9 Best 3rd Jerseys In The NHL

    For NHL teams, third jerseys are huge cash cows. That’s because gullible hockey fans (like myself) will go out and buy the third jersey replicas the day they are released, even though they already own their teams’ “regular” jerseys. On top of that, historic franchises (like the Rangers or Maple Leafs) can change up these […]

    Here Is A Look At The 2012 Winter Classic Promo (Video)

    The Winter Classic has become a staple on the NHL’s regular season calendar, and that notion has only been furthered by HBO’s  24/7 documentary, which was introduced prior to last year’s meeting between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals. This season the cameras will be following the players and coaches of the New York […]

    Listen To Sean Avery Threaten Claude Giroux’s Life (Video)

    Sean Avery wasn’t happy about something during last night’s game between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.  Perhaps it had something to do with Flyers’ forward Wayne Simmonds directing a homophobic slur at him.  Or maybe it was because he had just watched two of his teammates get victimized by hits-from-behind from the […]

  • This Day In Sports History (July 21st) – Wayne Gretzky

    This Day In Sports History (July 21st) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1996 that Wayne Gretzky signed a two-year contract with the New York Rangers.  The signing reunited Gretzky with long-time Edmonton Oiler teammate Mark Messier. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier spent nine very successful years together in Edmonton winning four Stanley Cups.  However, their reunion in New York was short-lived, […]

    Rangers Fans Ask Bruce Boudreau, “Can You Hear Us?” (Video)

    Following a Game 3 loss to the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals’ head coach Bruce Boudreau said that the fans at Madison Square Garden weren’t very loud, claiming that the fans at the Verizon Center were much louder. It was almost as if he was working with Verizon on their next commercial, because with the […]

  • John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks, Part ??? (Video)

    John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks, Part ??? (Video)

    Most hockey fans will tell you that some of the greatest rivalries in the game include the Boston Bruins vs. the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings vs. the Chicago Blackhawks.  I would argue that we should add John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks to that list. The New York Rangers’ head coach and the […]
