Rangers’ GM Glen Sather has the pieces required to land either Rick Nash or Bobby Ryan but must resist the urge to overpay to acquire either star forward.
Last week Monzo talked about New York’s needs, and what could happen through free agency. This week, he looks at two trade possibilities.
Sather is still having a tough time dealing with his top-seeded club’s elimination in the Eastern Conference finals.
The Los Angeles Kings have plenty of respect for the New Jersey Devils, as the two Stanley Cup Finalists share many qualities.
The Rangers are not in need of a dramatic shake-up. But when free agency comes around, you never know how things will unfold.
For the third straight series, the Eastern Conference’s top-seeded team is all even through four games, and each time New York has headed into Game 5 off the disappointment of a loss that would have given the Rangers a commanding 3-1 edge.
The young Rangers have proven that poise and composure is equally important as ten years of playoff experience.
David Clarkson’s deflected goal 2:31 into the third period snapped a tie and lifted the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers that evened the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece on Wednesday night.
There were three things that stood out to me more than anything last night, and they were the play of Michael Del Zotto, Ryan McDonagh and Carl Hagelin.
Coach John Tortorella’s postgame news conference was so short you might think that just like the rest of the Rangers, he was trying to conserve energy.
After 14 games and two nail-biting playoff series wins, the New York Rangers insist they have plenty left to make a run at the Stanley Cup. If any proof was needed, Henrik Lundqvist provided it with a shutout victory over the well-rested New Jersey Devils on Monday.
John Tortorella is leaning on rookie Chris Kreider to be a difference maker in Game 7.
Based on what I’ve seen, as long as the Rangers can find a way to consistently score (the $50,000 question), there seems to be no way they lose this series to the Capitals.
To John Tortorella, there’s the wrong way — and then there’s his way.
The Rangers were good enough in Game 1 and they should be better in Game 2. If they can hold on to home ice tonight, they have a chance to find their playoff legs and great teams don’t let those opportunities slip away.
