“It’s a power-play goal!!” makes me happy the way the opening notes of a Rush song on the radio do. Let’s Go Rangers!! Cup or bust, baby!
The Islanders were simply a different team in Game 1 than the one that went just 6-8-5 over the season’s final quarter. They imposed their will against the Capitals.
In honor of their first-round playoff series with Washington, here are the previous six Islanders-Capitals series.
With the series opener upon us, here are the keys to what should be a highly charged, emotional series.
Brock Nelson, Josh Bailey, Ryan Strome and the Islanders showed that experience is not required for playoff success.
When the Rangers were eliminated in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final last spring there were serious concerns about whether they could realistically take the next step this season. Yet they appear to be even better.
Since the first of training camp, Rangers center Kevin Hayes never acted like an ordinary 22-year-old.
Look for Rick Nash, Derick Brassard, Derek Stepan, Marty St. Louis and Mats Zuccarello to torch Fleury repeatedly.
If we get the team that blew multiple leads and played poor defense against Columbus (twice) and Philadelphia, this is going to be a very short series.
Henrik Lundqvist told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday afternoon that he’s in a good place physically as the Rangers ready for their opening round playoff series against Pittsburgh.
Compared to other teams, the Islanders are short on playoff experience. But Johnny Boychuk sure sounds like he can make up the difference.
The Presidents’ Trophy-winning Rangers were kings of the regular season, but will this finally be the year that King Henrik raises Lord Stanley?
The 24-year-old Tavares enters his second career playoff series after finishing fourth to Ovechkin with 38 goals and second in the league — two spots ahead of Ovechkin — with 86 points.
The New Jersey Devils have developed a new trend when it comes to the playoffs.
The New Jersey Devils ended the 2014-15 season on a sour note, going just 1-7-3 over their last 11 games to finish with 78 points, their fewest in a season of 80-or-more games since 1988-89, when they had just 66.
