Rangers Battle Original Six Foe in Historic Night

After the 1975-1976 season, the New York Rangers decided they wanted to rebuild. They did so by dealing star player, Jean Ratelle, among others to the Boston Bruins, in an effort to build for the future. Ironically, the Rangers did the same thing this morning.¬†Following the trades of Michael Grabner and Nick Holden earlier this week, the Rangers have continued their trade-deadline-fire-sale, as they have now dealt alternate captain, Rick Nash, to the Boston Bruins, and received quite the haul in return, which included roster players, a draft pick, and…

Staal and Granlund Lead Minnesota Past Vulnerable Rangers

It’s very simple, the New York Rangers are not a good hockey team right now. Maybe it’s been the trade-deadline-chaos surrounding the organization that has distracted the players from their on-ice duties, but nonetheless their recent play has been substandard. When speaking with John Giannone prior to puck-drop, Jeff Gorton reiterated the fact that there are no untouchables, and that every Ranger is available, which has led to the feelings of uneasiness, uncertainty, and nervousness for not only the guys on the ice, but also the men behind the bench.…

Rangers Getting Wild On the Ice, In Trades As Sale Continues

With Michael Grabner headed off to rival New Jersey, the New York Rangers’ deadline strategy has gotten downright wild.

Georgiev Shines in Uninspiring Defeat

After the USA women’s ice hockey team’s ‘Redemption On Ice’ a night ago, the Rangers were looking to follow it up with a miracle of their own, but unlike Jocelyne Lamoureux, they were unsuccessful. Tonight the Blueshirts traveled to the Bell Centre, where the Montreal Canadiens handed them their 5th straight loss, and their 12th in their last 15 games. Calling Alain Vigneault’s team undermanned in this game, may even be an understatement, but it’s not as if the Rangers were matched up against a quality opponent either. With tonight’s…

Rangers Meet Habs In Battle of Potential Sellers

The biggest win in this dying era of New York Rangers hockey was perhaps their 2014 Eastern Conference Finals triumph over the Montreal Canadians. It’s appropriate, them, that the era could end with a showdown with Montreal, going down tonight at Bell Centre (7:30 PM, MSG2). The Rangers (27-28-5), who made the first of what’s expected to be several trade deadline deals earlier this week by trading Nick Holden to Boston, have had three days to stew over their latest defeat, a 7-4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday…
