Isles Wash The Rags At The Garden

As the “Lets Go Islanders” chants rained down from the Madison Square Garden rafters, while the horn sounded on an entertaining game, the Rangers’ Ryan Malone showed the only fight the Rangers could muster in the 3rd period by giving a couple of cheap shots to Brian Strait. Too little too late, as the Islanders took the first matchup of the season against their rivals in an impressive 6-3 victory.

It's a Long Season, "Challenge Accepted"

2 Down, 80 more to go, and another 16 W's after that! This past weekend has seen a whirlwind of emotions carry from Raleigh to Long Island, like... well, a hurricane. The Isles have gotten themselves off to a 2-0 start, their best in a decade, but now the real challenge begins. Can the team carry the momentum from the final home opener into the next few weeks?

Rangers win in OT 3-2 to take 3-1 series lead

Some things just seem destined to happen and that was certainly the case on Sunday night. It was only fitting that Marty St. Louis would be the Ranger that got the game winning goal in overtime to propel his team to within one game of the Stanley Cup Final.

Anyone that has been following the Eastern Conference Final knows that the Rangers are just on a surreal trip powered by the emotional engine of their right winger.

Going into this series most people would have thought that the Canadiens came flying into the series off of emotions after beating their dreaded rival Bruins. The problem is they have run into a team that is riding a wave that simply won’t subside. The Hab...

Canadiens look to even series

Now that the Montreal Canadiens have gotten a win under their belt, will it be enough to turn the tide in favor of the Habs? In a series that so far has not indicated that home ice means anything le hockey club de Montreal could very well get a win in Madison Square Garden on Sunday night and make a series out of this.

Both teams will be without key players. The Rangers have lost Derek Stepan who had surgery for a broken jaw and will not play in Sunday night’s game. This is a huge loss for the Rangers as Stepan is third on their team in points. They are getting back center Derek Brassard to replenish the forwards.

The Canadiens, meantime have lost chief agitator Brandon ...

What You Need To Know, Round 2: Pittsburgh Penguins Vs. New York Rangers

Team Breakdown

Pittsburgh: The Penguins managed to secure victory against the Columbus Blue Jackets by using their depth, their defense, and strong play on the puck. The Penguins had a tough time getting everything going against the very tight checking Blue Jackets, but still managed to control the puck at a 60% corsi and shake up the lines enough to avoid the preferred match ups of Columbus.

All of this plays in well against the Rangers. Pittsburgh will not have to focus exclusively on the forward match ups, mostly because New York’s shut down play Boyle has not had great success against Crosby. Pittsburgh has been able to use five different lines, comprised mostly of t...

Blackhawks drop game vs Rangers in regulation, 3-2

Early in the season, the Blackhawks picked up several wins where their best game wasn't there for the full sixty minutes, but they still managed to win the game. It might have hinted of a Cup hangover, but as the season rolled on, it was clear that the team didn't have any such thing - just their ongoing tendency to play some very sloppy periods within otherwise solid games.

Tonight versus the Rangers was one of those nights. The Blackhawks let themselves get outplayed in the first, and found themselves down 2-0 less than ten minutes into the game. Brad Richards opened the scoring with an even-strength goal; Mats Zuccarello put in a power play goal next off a pair of od...
