RYAN MCDONAGH RUMORS

The McDonagh versus Giroux battle continues through game 3

Home ice advantage certainly has its perks. Craig Berube did a masterful job of getting the Flyers the match-ups he wanted in game 3 at the Wells Fargo Center. Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi played 45% of Claude Giroux‘s even strength minutes last night. This was the first time Giroux has seen McDonagh for less than 50% of his ice time in three games. Anton Stralman and Dan Girardi...

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Question: Do you know the difference between Bobby Orr and Ryan McDonagh?

Injury notes: Kreider, McDonagh skating

Per Andrew Gross, both Ryan McDonagh and Chris Kreider were skating today at the Rangers optional skate. Neither did intensive work, with McDonagh doing some light skating and Kreider gripping his stick with one hand, but it’s a good sign to see them skating.

New York Rangers must protect Ryan McDonagh from himself

When Ryan McDonagh crumbled to the ice late Tuesday night in Vancouver, his mouth agape, his face warped in pain, Rangers fans held their breath. They crossed their fingers. They averted their eyes then immediately looked back. They waited for him to rise to his feet. The seconds rung like a gong. They dragged on relentlessly, their timbre low, their tenor dark. As McDonagh lay sprawled...
