New York Rangers

The New York Rangers entered Sunday's contest versus the Los Angeles Kings feeling a little down in the dumps. Just two days earlier, they squared off against the Buffalo Sabres and had pretty high expectations to win that game and creep up the standings. Unfortunately, they underestimated their opponents and the Sabres ended up defeating the Blueshirts 3-2 in regulation. It put a serious dent in their already fading playoff hopes with a little under two months to go in the regular season. The Kings were another weak opponent for the Rangers, so they knew they could not fall into the same trap as they had a couple of days earlier. Let's quickly dip our toes in and get a feel for what exactly transpired during Sunday night's action at Madison Square Garden. Shesterkin Shines Again There was quite a lot of buzz around Igor Shesterkin's abilities even before he made it to the NHL level. The Rangers drafted Shesterkin back in 2014 with the hopes he would one day be the heir to...

Rangers Goaltending

Monday night’s National Hockey League schedule gave us some intriguing matchups and made things even tighter in already ready close playoff race. We had a successful return in Philadelphia and a grudge match in Columbus. Also, we will look back at a big milestone for one of the all-time greats. Hart Honors Emery in Return Carter Hart returned to the crease on Monday night after missing the last nine games due to an abdominal strain he suffered in practice on Jan. 15. He made 30 saves in a huge 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers, pushing the Philadelphia Flyers into the second Eastern Conference wild card spot. "It was nice to get back out there,” Hart said from a victorious locker room. “It's not fun when you're just watching from the side, so it felt really good to get back out there with the boys and get a huge two points. "Maybe a couple shots and I was good to go. I kind of did all the work in practice with our coaches and our staff to make sure we did any...

Rangers History

From the GAG-line of the electric 1970s to the Stanley Cup-winning core of the 1990s, the company of 100-point seasons remains to be among the most elite players in New York Rangers history. Mark Messier is just one of the six Rangers to have 100-point seasons. (Photo by Bruce Bennett Studios/Getty Images) Let's dive into all six of the legendary Rangers that have accomplished such a feat in the team's 93-year history. Vic Hadfield and Jean Ratelle Form the GAG Line The Rangers of the 70s were driven by the combined performances of what is perhaps the greatest line that will ever don the diagonally crested Rangers logo. Vic Hadfield, Rod Gilbert, and Jean Ratelle spent the 1971-72 season scoring at a goal-a-game pace, thus dubbing them the GAG line and solidifying their place in Rangers history. The GAG line defined Rangers hockey of the 1970s, but none compared to the 1971-72 season. (THW Archives) A trip to the Stanley Cup Final nearly ended a 31-year Stanley...

Rangers Goaltending

In a day without any shutouts, one young goalie still managed to stand out, and it's a sign of terrific things to come in the Big Apple. Plus, today, we'll also take a look at the week in review. Shesterkin On Fire There's no question that Igor Shesterkin is the future for the New York Rangers, ready to take the reins from the all-time great, Henrik Lundqvist. But the more opportunities Shesterkin gets to start, the more he makes it clear that the future is now. The 24-year-old goalkeeper is ready to take command of the NHL, and he showed it again on Sunday. New York Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin (Sarah Stier-USA TODAY Sports) A great goaltender can make an even game look like a lopsided victory for his team, and Shesterkin managed that against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. According to Natural Stat Trick, the Kings controlled the game with 56.21 percent of the Corsi for percentage (CF%). They had 43 to the Rangers' 41, and 16 high danger chances for (HDCF) to the...

Missing Ryan Callahan

When Ryan Callahan departed from the New York Rangers in 2014, he took certain skills with him that the Rangers desperately need back. Don’t get me wrong, trading him at the time and not signing him to a massive contract that overpaid him was the right move but looking back on this past season,... May 19th, 2017
