Two games in and Rick Nash has been good against the Capitals. Whether good is enough to win a Cup is another debate but the best part about Nash so far is that he appears to be getting better as the series develops. Nash’s lack of goals in the postseason is an issue, of course

The Rangers are headed to Washington with the series tied at one a piece, the same way the Rangers headed to Pittsburgh last round. However, there was a lot more confidence heading to Pittsburgh than D.C., and I have to admit it’s not hard to see why. The Caps have found ways to take it

New York Ranger Tanner Glass speared Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby last night. Holtby? Went down like he was shot.Epic. Perhaps if Chris Kreider would stop crashing nets, we wouldn't see this as often...The NYR only scored once on Holtby...and it was as lucky as it gets.Follow us on Twitter for exclusive stories, Subscribe by Email, or Return home for Top sports news.
Joe Ward scored with 1.3 seconds left in the game to lift the Washington Capitals to a 2-1 win and a 1-0 series lead over the New York Rangers. Alex Ovechkin fed Ward from behind the net and Ward put the puck past Henrik Lundqvist for the win. A thrilling win for Game One sets up what should be a terrific second round series. Ward’s game winning tally was his second goal...
The New York Rangers got excellent news heading into game one of the second round against the Washington Capitals, in that they will finally get Kevin Klein back in the lineup after missing the last 7 weeks (including the first round of the playoffs) with a broken arm sustained after blocking a shot against, coincidentally, Alex Ovechkin. This means that Matt Hunwick, who played...
After dispatching the Pittsburgh Penguins in just five games, the New York Rangers have had an opportunity to gain some additional rest. That rest could prove pivotal for them in their second round series with Washington, who comes to town fresh off a seven game marathon against the Islanders. If goaltender Henrik Lundqvist continues playing in top form, and the Rangers' core group...

You may have noticed something a little strange if you follow the New York Rangers on Twitter. As they prepare for a playoff matchup against the Washington Capitals in the second round, the account suddenly stopped using capital letters in their Tweets. From quotes to news announcements, the social media team has made a concentrated, though unannounced effort against capital letters...
Late last week the New York Rangers earned some much needed rest after closing out the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of a tightly fought series. The 4-1 series win was the first time the Blueshirts closed out a series in less than six games in what feels like forever. In reality though, it was […]

It only took five games for the New York Rangers to knock off the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the series felt a lot tougher than that, because it was. In spite of the fact that Pittsburgh was playing without three key men in their roster, they made the Rangers grind it out every single night. It was certainly not a cakewalk. All four of the Rangers’ wins were by a score of 2-1, two...
NEW YORK — The New York Rangers used Carl Hagelin’s overtime goal and spectacular goaltending by Henrik Lundqvist for a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night to advance in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Hagelin skated out from behind the net and put a wrist shot on the short side behind Marc-Andre Fleury, who was equally as brilliant as Lundqvist. Hagelin’s teammates...

After a dominant game one against the Pittsburgh Penguins in which the New York Rangers won 2-1, the Rangers went back to an incredibly lackluster style of play in game two. In game one, the Rangers played with a lot more urgency and desperation, consistently outracing the Penguins to the puck, had a tighter forecheck, and a faster jump to secure the 2-1 victory. However, in game...
