    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

    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)

    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 […]

    OT Goal Wakes Up Sleeping Caps Fan (Video)

    Wake Up Kid!  Your Caps Won! Perhaps the only thing better than getting to attend to a playoff hockey game as a child and staying out way past your bedtime, is falling asleep at the game and being woken up immediately following a game-winning overtime goal by your team. This kid was probably dreaming about […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Washington Post WTF?

    Picture Of The Day: Washington Post WTF?

    Those who watched last night’s opening game of the first round series between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals know that the Caps won in overtime following a rocket of a one-timer off the stick of Caps forward Alexander Semin, in what was an otherwise fairly PG-rated game. As for those who got […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/4/11 — Vinny Prospal

    Sitting only two points ahead of the ninth-place Hurricanes, the New York Rangers were in need of a win on Monday night if they hoped to remain in control of their own playoff destiny.  It didn’t look like they would be getting that win after the Boston Bruins jumped out to a 3-0 lead, but […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Coburn vs. Boyle — 4/3/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Coburn vs. Boyle — 4/3/11

    The New York Rangers continued their push for the playoffs yesterday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers, and once again they came out fighting, both literally and figuratively.  Brian Boyle was the one doing the real fighting, as he challenged the Flyers’ Braydon Coburn following a questionable hit on Ruslan Fedotenko. Boyle would go on to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/30/11 — Jhonas Enroth

    Wednesday night turned out to be quite the interesting night for Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth.  With his team in the midst of a tight playoff race in the Eastern Conference, all-star netminder Ryan Miller has been receiving most of the workload.  However, Enroth was forced into action for last night’s game against the New […]
