RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Skjei Here to Stay

After a red-hot start to the season, the New York Rangers have had somewhat of a tumultuous ride over the past few weeks. Their possession numbers and overall quality of play have taken a stark downturn, but the team has still managed to avoid any prolonged losing streaks. While many of the Rangers’ struggles can be attributed to an inconsistent defense corps that has trouble...

Special teams a major strength for the Rangers so far

The Rangers have had an interesting start to the season, one that feels similar to last year. The Rangers are getting ridiculously hot shooting and relying on getting at least three goals per game to get their wins. They haven’t won a single game where they scored fewer than three times, and the goaltending is […] The post Special teams a major strength for the Rangers so far...

Rangers need lines to step up in wake of injuries to stars

It has become clear over the past two weeks the Rangers are not the same four-line offensive juggernaut since Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich left their top-six with injuries. The broken fibula Zibanejad suffered Nov. 20 is going to keep him out another month or so, while Buchnevich’s back ailment that became too dire after...

Why Rangers turned 2 terrible periods into an electric 3rd

After 20 minutes, the Rangers had been outshot 15-3 overall and out-attempted 25-9 at five-on-five. Through 28:34, the shots were 23-4 for Carolina in what was a 1-1 match at the Garden.

The one word separating this Lundqvist from the great Lundqvist

For the last 11 seasons, the Rangers have gone where Henrik Lundqvist has taken them. It will be no different this year. But here we are, almost one-third into 2016-17 following a 4-2 victory over the Hurricanes at the Garden on Saturday afternoon in which the Blueshirts spent the first 29 minutes committing felonies against...

Being honest about Alain Vigneault

The Rangers are slipping. It’s no secret to anyone who’s watched the team these past couple of weeks. Poor defensive play and a lack of execution on the rush –and some teams figuring out how to stymie the Rangers’ game plan– mean that the team has either barely squeaked by when they’ve won games (Philly) […] The post Being honest about Alain Vigneault appeared first...

New York Rangers should not count on comeback victories

By the end of a hockey game, the goal is to have one more goal than the other team. It doesn’t matter when you score them or how you score them as long as you have the most at the end of 60 minutes or at the end of overtime. However, the Rangers have made a habit of scoring goals late after being behind most of the game. Is this a reliable way to win games for the rest of the season...

Kevin Klein’s form a growing problem for the Rangers

The Rangers can probably tolerate one blueliner playing poorly until they finally decide to amend their blueline closer to the trade deadline, a time when cap space is likely to be plentiful and when the typical NYC obsession with acquiring a big name will take over Jeff Gorton. What they cannot afford is to have […] The post Kevin Klein’s form a growing problem for the Rangers...

New York Rangers fans can hang their hats on an Eastern Conference Title

The disappointment that has followed the New York Rangers for much of the past 75 years has increased the burden on its current batch of players. Its rabid fan base has only seen one Stanley Cup title during that span and that one took place 22 years ago. With the Rangers having gotten off to a hot start at 14-5-1 this season, thoughts of raising Lord Stanley again have inevitably...

Blue Jackets' Matt Calvert scores game-winning goal after 30 stitches

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert made a nice block on a shot attempt during Friday’s game against the New York Rangers, but his face paid the price. The shot by Ryan McDonagh rose up and drilled Calvert, who went to the floor with blood pooling up on the ice in front of him. Matt Calvert takes a slap shot to the eye, skates off like it's no big deal. #HockeyTough...

Can the New York Rangers continue scoring at this pace?

The New York Rangers’ confidence level is at an all-time high as they’re the highest scoring team (72 goals in 17 games) in the NHL. Pucks are going into the net at a record pace. The Rangers are playing winning hockey because they have four lines that can skate and score goals. No question, the Blueshirts are going to continue this alarming rate because head coach Alain Vigneault...

Antti Raanta pulled by concussion spotters; Rangers take loss as result

The new wrinkle in the NHL this season is the presence of concussion spotters, who can call down to the ice if they think a player is playing with concussion symptoms. It’s happened a small handful of times this season, and on Tuesday it created an odd situation, as it was a goaltender – Antti Raanta of the Rangers -- who was pulled after getting run over in the third period...
