Rangers could rest Lundqvist with home ice locked up

By the Rangers locking up home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs with Thursday night’s 2-1 squeaker of a win over the Sabres at the Garden, their lineup for Saturday’s regular-season finale in Montreal is up in the air.

The home-ice disadvantage for the New York Rangers

It wasn’t long ago that Madison Square Garden was the “extra attacker” for the Broadway Blueshirts.

The reasons for keeping Cam Talbot beyond this year are adding up

Talbot’s cap hit is just $565,500 next season When Henrik Lundqvist re-signed with the Rangers for seven years, $59.5 million on December 4, one of the possible dominoes was the team trading backup goalie Cam Talbot this summer. Talbot has produced at probably an unsustainable level. With just one season separating the 26-year-old from unrestricted free agency, you have to assume...
