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…

Rangers Seek Black Friday Deal Against Detroit

The New York Rangers are hoping to knock around opponents on the ice on Black Friday, rather than the irrational retail store crowds. The Blueshirts immediately return to work on Black Friday, as they welcome in the Detroit Red Wings for an Original Six showdown at Madison Square Garden (7:00, MSG+). New York (11-9-2) is looking for their third win a row, as well as their ninth win in their past 11, as they’re coming off a commanding 6-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night.
