This series is going to be won in the corners and the dirty areas of the ice. It will be a grind-it-out kind of series that will have John Tortorella’s men licking their chops.
Here’s a look at the very best of the Boston-New York rivalries in football, basketball, baseball and hockey. Enjoy the history lesson.
The Rangers have put All-Star winger Rick Nash on injured reserve retroactive to Sunday, Feb. 10, according to a report.
It wasn’t a memorable debut for Rich Nash and the new-look Rangers who were defeated in their season opener by the Bruins 3-1.
Stephane Matteau’s son will soon play for the Devils. He appears to be the kind of prospect that will have a chance to advance up the ranks quickly.
The Rangers weren’t able to add a big name at the NHL Trade Deadline but did acquire one of the league’s toughest fighters in John Scott.
It was an old school third period in Game 1. It was physical, it was eventful, and there were so many chances to score goals that you could not blink or else you missed something. Look for more of the same in Game 2.
I believe this series is going to be a classic, and I rarely get that feeling about any championship series.
Tuukka Rask stopped 34 shots and six Bruins scored as Boston snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory against the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
Milan Lucic scored two goals and Tuukka Rask made 33 saves to lift the Boston Bruins to a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
After improving by 18 points last season, the New York Islanders hoped to continue that upward trend in 2010-11. Instead, they may have played themselves out of playoff contention before Christmas.
Tim Thomas made 15 of his 34 saves in the third period, turning away three shots when Boston was down two men in the third and lifting the Bruins to a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.
