The New York Rangers will open the second round at Madison Square Garden against either the New York Islanders or Washington Capitals.
Because they won the Presidents’ Trophy with 113 points, the Rangers are guaranteed to start every playoff series at home.
The Rangers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 2-1 in overtime at home on Friday.
The Rangers could learn...
It only took five games for the New York Rangers to knock off the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the series felt a lot tougher than that, because it was. In spite of the fact that Pittsburgh was playing without three key men in their roster, they made the Rangers grind it out every single night. It was certainly not a cakewalk. All four of the Rangers’ wins were by a score of 2-1, two...
NY Rangers forward Carl Hagelin digs the puck out from the boards and whips a wicked wrister short side by Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to clinch the series in overtime.Followed by the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers shaking hands at the conclusion of their Round 1 series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.Follow us on Twitter for exclusive stories, Subscribe by Email, or...
The New York Rangers made us sweat, but it was Carl Hagelin’s goal in overtime that gave the Rangers the series in just five games. This was a very tight game throughout, with Henrik Lundqvist and Marc-Andre Fleury putting on a clinic in keeping your team in it. This was a much better 60+ minute

I would venture to say that you’re far too pessimistic if you’re not already feeling good about a team that won the Presidents’ Trophy, finished the last three or four months on a torrid pace and is up 3-1 in their first round series. That’s not to say the New York Rangers’ play so far […]

Rangers Game Notes
I was listening to the radio yesterday, and I couldn’t believe my ears. Hockey was being discussed, and it wasn’t Boomer and Carton or Michael Kay and Don La Greca. Once I got over my initial shock of hearing hockey on the radio discussed by a voice in which I could not identify, I started

The New York Rangers headed into action last night holding a 2-1 series lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins, and were looking to grab complete control by locking up yet another win. Things didn’t start off too well for the team, as the Penguins scored the opening goal for the first time this series just a […]

It’s that horrible day, the one between games but the Rangers are heading into Friday with a 3-1 series lead. Life can’t get much sweeter as a Rangers fan right now. Let’s throw up a few random thoughts on Rangers goings on. It appears Rick Nash will always divide opinion. Has Nash been dominant? No

Gonna cut right to the chase. Burn up that game footage. Save the OT tape for Kevin Hayes. But the first 60 minutes, kill it with fire.
The Rangers had ZERO scoring chances in the first period, per war-on-ice.com. You almost have to try to be that bad. Two shots...
In the Rangers segment of episode 16 of the The Shutdown Pair Podcast, hosts Scott Charles (@ScottmCharles) and Christian Arnold (@CA_NYhockey) discuss whether the Rangers should seriously consider benching Dan Boyle and if the Blueshirts can knock out the Penguins without going to seven games.

The Pens may be down, but they certainly are not out. They have a chance to even up the series at home tonight in a pivotal Game 4 matchup. But it’s time to be real. Game 4 is a must-win game for the Penguins. If they head back to New York down...

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two. In game one, the Rangers played with a lot more urgency and desperation, consistently outracing the Penguins to the puck, had a tighter forecheck, and a faster jump to secure the 2-1 victory. However, in game...
Dark cloud: The Pens are three losses away from the season being over.
Silver lining of the dark cloud: The Penguins played their strongest game in about a month.
It has been a weird season, so when we say we feel some positive things about a playoff loss, it doesn’t feel that strange. The Penguins had some fight in them, the Rangers interfered with the rest.
But the Rangers...
Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh grabbed Pittsburgh's leading goal scorer Geno Malkin by the back of the jersey last night and threw him face first into the boards in an obvious attempt to injure the Penguins' center.

The New York Rangers begin their quest for the cup on April 16 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and will be doing so without shutdown defenseman Kevin Klein for an undetermined amount of time. Klein has been out with an injury since blocking a shot taken by Alex Ovechkin on March 11, and, in spite of a recent announcement claiming he’d be ready for game 1, it looks as though he...
