Two games in and Rick Nash has been good against the Capitals.

Thoughts following Games One and Two

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 Read more → The post Thoughts following Games One and Two appeared first on Blue Seat Blogs.

New York Ranger Tanner Glass speared Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby last night. Holtby? Went down like he was shot.Epic.

Ward scores with one second left to lift the Caps a 1-0 series lead over Rangers

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...

Rangers head into the second round without Mats Zuccarello

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...

Goaltending and extra rest could give Rangers the edge

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...

Rangers aren’t using capital letters for series against Caps

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.

New York Rangers first round report card

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.

The New York Rangers advance, who would they want to play next?

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 Rangers have their eyes set on the Cup

I would venture to say that you’re far too pessimistic if you’re not already feeling good about a team that won the Presidents’ Trophy, finished the last three or four months on a torrid pace and is up 3-1 in their first round series. That’s not to say the New York Rangers’ play so far […] The post New York Rangers have their eyes set on the Cup appeared first on Along the Boards.

The New York Rangers remain consistently inconsistent

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...
