Gotta support the team: Rangers fan shaves Rick Nash’s face into back of head (photo)

Well … that’s certainly something. Face painting? So … played. Hair dyed in team colors? Whatev. How about shaving a team’s logo into one’s head? Not good enough.  A clearly die-hard, dedicated and devoted New York Rangers fan and avid Rick Nash backer showed other hockey fans how a true fanatic pledges his support for […] The post Gotta support the team: Rangers fan...

Five Reasons To Hate The New York Rangers

Photo courtesy of Amy Irvin (38Photography) As we know by now, tonight starts the latest chapter of the Flyers-Rangers rivalry. During the regular season, the two bitter competitors fought each other to a 2-2 tie in their season series. The home team won every time. If the Flyers want any chance to move on in the 2014 playoffs, they must win at Madison Square Garden. Now we could...

Rangers sign Mat Bodie out of Union College

Apologies for the delay on this one. Yesterday was one of those rare days where all of us got dumped on at work, and none of us could post on this. The Rangers signed undrafted free agent defenseman Mat Bodie out of Union College yesterday, just days after leading his team to a National Championship. […]

Vigneault Explains Miller “Commitment” Comment

After yesterday’s practice, Alain Vigneault mentioned that one of the reasons the Rangers recalled JT Miller is that he has the potential and skill set to be able to fill-in if someone in the lineup goes down. In response to that comment, Vigneault was pressed on his past remarks questioning Miller’s commitment… “I would say those comments might have been interpreted by you...

Vigneault backs off JT Miller comments

New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault may not have meant for his comments regarding JT Miller to be “pointy”, but they sure sounded like it at the time. Yesterday, Vigneault clarified his previous comments. Via Katie Strang: “I would say those comments might have been interpreted by you as pointed. I would say to you that 95 percent of young players have to figure it...

More on the Rangers signing of Mat Bodie & the comparison to Torey Krug

Yesterday, the Rangers signed Union College defenseman Mat Bodie. At first glance, I really like the signing. Well, let me clarify. I like the idea of the signing. After all, Bodie was a standout on the best squad in college hockey this season and the Rangers organizationally have woefully few puck moving defensemen. Plus (and I will keep beating this drum) the Rangers really need...

Why the Rangers need to address the center position this summer

Not a single team currently ranked lower than the Rangers in face-off percentage this year will be in the playoffs. The last four Stanley Cup Champions (Chicago (twice), LA and Boston) rank 5th, 3rd and 8th respectively in face-off success. All three of the Rangers centers relied on for their offense – Derick Brassard, Derek […]

New York Rangers: Henrik Lundqvist Needs a Ring to be Called King

New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has established himself as the king of the crease on the grandest stage, the world’s most famous arena. Throughout his career for the blue shirts, Lundqvist has conquered every mountain there is for an NHL goaltender. Most career wins and shutouts for the franchise? check. Being the team’s icon? check. Vezina trophy winner? check...

Rangers Recall JT Miller

The New York Rangers have recalled JT Miller today, just ahead of the first round playoff matchup with the Philadelphia Flyers. The Wolf Pack’s season is practically over and I would expect an influx of ‘black aces’ in the near future. Miller was scolded in the media by Alain Vigneault on April 2nd, following his demotion to Hartford. Jesper Fast has fit nicely in his brief...

Zipay: Kreider may be ready for second round

Per Steve Zipay, injured winger Chris Kreider will likely miss the first round of the playoffs, but should be ready for the second round should the Rangers advance: Chris Kreider (surgery on left hand March 28) is progressing and the 17-goal scorer should be ready if the Rangers advance to the second round. This means […]

McDonagh’s Returning ; Which Defenseman Sits?

The Rangers’ borderline Norris-caliber defenseman Ryan McDonagh is returning to the lineup just in time for the start of the NHL playoffs. That’s good. The Rangers have seven defensemen on the roster who have justified, by some measure, a spot in the Game One lineup on Thursday. That’s also good. Unfortunately, Alain Vigneault can only dress six defensemen, and thus he has...

Guy at Rangers game wonders how many periods are in a game

It’s safe to say that this kid at Madison Square Garden for last night’s Rangers-Hurricanes game was not the biggest hockey fan in attendance. In fact, I think it might be safe to assume that this was his first time attending an NHL game considering the photo above of him searching how many periods there are in a game of hockey. I guess he didn’t really enjoy the Rangers...

Martin St. Louis is killing the New York Rangers

It sealed a 3-1 victory at Vancouver and offered a glimmer of hope for the playoffs ahead.“It’s always nice to score goals, especially in a winning way,” St. Louis told reporters. “I guess the first one is the toughest one to get.”Apparently so, because St. Louis produced just one goal and three assists...
