Rangers Finally Getting the DeAngelo They Hoped For

Rangers Finally Getting the DeAngelo They Hoped For

December 5th, 2019 In recent years, the New York Rangers became notorious for their strong defensive play. Potent offenses of the time would be silenced as the strong red, white, and blue defensive corps would prevent even the best from having much success. It was quite exciting seeing such a cohesive unit excelling...

Rangers Goaltending

Thursday is Thanksgiving in the United States and it is an important date in the National Hockey League. Many pundits use the holiday as the date for when we are no longer “early in the season” and the playoff races begin for real. Over 75% of the teams who are in a playoff spot on American Thanksgiving end up playing in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs come April. Thanksgiving eve was a busy night with 13 games on the NHL schedule. We had a strange game in Detroit, which included a shutout, and even more history in New York. We also have a birthday for one of this generation’s best goaltenders and we will look back at a pair of historic moments. Maple Leafs Dominate Weird Night in Motown Sheldon Keefe became the first coach in Toronto Maple Leafs history to win the first three games of his NHL career when his team rolled over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. The Maple Leafs had 54 shots on goal in 6-0 whitewash of their Original 6 rivals....

New York Rangers

As I'm sure many of you already know, the New York Rangers are currently in a rebuild session. This process has been ongoing for the last three seasons, with this year finally showing some signs of real growth from the young corps. One such name that comes to mind is Filip Chytil who has been making a case for himself to become an everyday fixture within his team's starting lineup. But that wasn't always the case, especially last season. A Rough Start Chytil began his professional career with the Rangers during the 2017-18 season where he only played in a handful of games. During that season, he had only a goal and a pair of assists with a minus-five rating in nine contests. It was a very small sample of games we saw from the young Czech skater, but he did show promise at just 18 years old. The 2018-19 season would give fans and the coaching staff a better gauge of how productive a player he would be. Unfortunately, he would struggle to take any progressive strides during...

New York Rangers

Brendan Lemieux sat beneath the Broadway Hat after the New York Rangers' stirring comeback victory against the Montreal Canadiens over the weekend, his broad smile in contrast to his blackish-purple left eye. Head coach David Quinn was undoubtedly smiling too. This type of player having this type of impact is what Quinn envisioned when he stated his desire for a "fast, physical and relentless" Rangers team upon signing on before last season. Artemi Panarin is the Blueshirts' star and Henrik Lundqvist the veteran rock in net, but young talent is the raw material from which the Rangers will forge a consistent contender. Lemieux is quickly becoming the Rangers' heartbeat whose evolving leadership is demonstrating his ability to affect the outcome of a game in numerous ways. https://twitter.com/NYRangers/status/1198436558401081346?s=20 The 23-year-old earned the coveted fedora Saturday night with a two-goal performance that powered the Rangers' 6-5 road win, helping his...

Rangers History

The 2010s are coming to a close in a matter of weeks. During these last 10 years, we have seen some pretty exciting playoff series with the New York Rangers. There were a lot of highs and lows as the Rangers became a regular participant in the Spring action. We will be diving into the top five greatest playoff series of the past decade for our beloved Blueshirts. So sit back, relax and let's reminisce about some of the recent postseason moments. 2012: Rangers Finally Get Revenge on Caps The 2011-12 regular season for the Rangers was a very special one for the organization. They possessed the best record in the Eastern Conference with 109 points and the soon to be Vezina Trophy winner in Henrik Lundqvist on their side. New York also had one of the best defenses in the league that year with guys like Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, Marc Staal, and Anton Stralman at the back end. The Blueshirts looked poised to make a deep Cup run that spring and possibly bring home their first...

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
