New York Rangers
Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game, and the New York Rangers used a four-goal second period to beat the New Jersey Devils, 7-3, on a cold and snowy Sunday outside at Yankee Stadium.
New York Rangers legend Rod Gilbert joined Boomer and Craig at M&M’s World to discuss the Rangers’ big win over Devils yesterday at Yankee Stadium.
History was made again at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, but it had nothing to do with the Bronx Bombers.
The Rangers, the second-place team in the Metropolitan Division, come in having lost two straight at home after a 9-2-1 surge. The Devils, 5-1-3 in their past nine, are tied for fifth but are only two points behind.
Even though Cory Schneider has been on quite a roll, DeBoer is turning to Brodeur, the face of the Devils to start against the Rangers in the Stadium Series.
Heading to the Stadium Series, Rick Nash is carrying a four-game goal streak with six goals scored during the streak. Nash has registered 10 goals in his last 10 games.
St. Louis defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk scored the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period, and the Blues got the best of the New York Rangers again in a 2-1 victory on Thursday night.
Make no mistake about it. The Rangers are a win-now team and Kevin Klein will provide the consistency that Michael Del Zotto clearly lacked.
Del Zotto, only 23, was the 20th overall pick of the Rangers in the 2008 NHL Draft and made his Rangers debut in 2009. He has two goals and nine assists in 42 games for New York this season.
It’s taken some growing pains, but the Rangers have finally figured out Vigneault’s possession-based uptempo system, which requires intensive skating, crisp, intricate passing and defensemen understanding when to join the attack.
It might be snowing and freezing outside, but the atmosphere will almost certainly be heated Tuesday night inside Madison Square Garden.
Rick Nash scored two of New York’s three first-period goals, and Henrik Lundqvist won for the fifth time in six outings as the surging Rangers beat the sliding Washington Capitals 4-1 on Sunday night.
The Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames engaged in a wild first-period brawl Saturday night which later carried over to Canucks coach John Tortorella being involved in an alternation in the hallway outside of the Flames’ dressing room.
Derek Stepan broke a 13-game goal drought and Cam Talbot made 27 saves for his 10th win of the season as the Rangers won 4-1.
Lundqvist has recorded sparkling statistics in his past five games. “King Henrik” is 4-1-0 with a 1.40 goals-against average and .957 save percentage over the Rangers’ recent stretch that began with a belief-inspiring victory over the Blackhawks.
