The one word separating this Lundqvist from the great Lundqvist

For the last 11 seasons, the Rangers have gone where Henrik Lundqvist has taken them. It will be no different this year.

Game 27: More of the same

The Rangers lost a sloppy game in Buffalo the other night. Very few players even showed up, but one that did was Adam Clendening, notching an assist and playing a pretty solid game, although he did take a late penalty. But they lost, so it’s back to Kevin Klein and the status quo. But let’s […] The post Game 27: More of the same appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

Being honest about Alain Vigneault

The Rangers are slipping. It’s no secret to anyone who’s watched the team these past couple of weeks.

New York Rangers should not count on comeback victories

By the end of a hockey game, the goal is to have one more goal than the other team. It doesn’t matter when you score them or how you score them as long as you have the most at the end of 60 minutes or at the end of overtime.

New York Rangers fans can hang their hats on an Eastern Conference Title

The disappointment that has followed the New York Rangers for much of the past 75 years has increased the burden on its current batch of players. Its rabid fan base has only seen one Stanley Cup title during that span and that one took place 22 years ago. With the Rangers having gotten off to a hot start at 14-5-1 this season, thoughts of raising Lord Stanley again have inevitably...

Can the New York Rangers continue scoring at this pace?

The New York Rangers’ confidence level is at an all-time high as they’re the highest scoring team (72 goals in 17 games) in the NHL. Pucks are going into the net at a record pace. The Rangers are playing winning hockey because they have four lines that can skate and score goals. No question, the Blueshirts are going to continue this alarming rate because head coach Alain Vigneault...

Antti Raanta pulled by concussion spotters; Rangers take loss as result

The new wrinkle in the NHL this season is the presence of concussion spotters, who can call down to the ice if they think a player is playing with concussion symptoms. It’s happened a small handful of times this season, and on Tuesday it created an odd situation, as it was a goaltender – Antti Raanta of the Rangers -- who was pulled after getting run over in the third period...
