Matt Read should be suspended for his hit on Carcillo, but he won’t be

Amidst all the god awful officiating in last night’s 4-1 Rangers victory against the Flyers, was this clear head shot by Matt Read on Daniel Carcillo that went uncalled. “As the video shows”, Read stuck his frickin’ elbow out intentionally to pop Carcillo in the dome. It’s a hit worthy of at least a game as the video is pretty damning. Read did it on purpose. He targeted...

The Rangers took Game One in relatively dominating fashion on Thursday night, but followed that up by blowing a two goal lead and giving up four straight goals to the Flyers.

Campbell: Lady Byng finalist Martin St. Louis’ trade demands weren’t ‘gentlemanly’

The NHL announced that Martin St. Louis is one of the finalists for the Lady Byng Trophy as the league's most gentlemanly player today, but the Hockey News's Ken Campbell summarizes at least the Twitter-using media's reaction to said news: Martin St-Louis did not get my vote for the Lady Byng, basically because he didn’t deserve it. St-Louis may have had only 10...

Martin St. Louis nominated for Lady Byng, not sure if this is a prank?

Okay, we get it Professional Hockey Writers Association. You really think Martin St. Louis is gentlemanly. Usually, he is, which is why he has won the Lady Byng in three of the past four seasons. He has become the default recipient of the most peculiar award in hockey. So yet again, St. Louis has been nominated for the Lady Byng. But why this season? The Lady Byng – or the not...

Embellishments & Pulling the Goaltender Gaffes Highlight Tough Afternoon for Rangers

It was an all around tough day for the Rangers yesterday, as the Flyers tied the best of seven series at 1-1 with a 4-2 victory. But there were three plays that highlighted the forgettable afternoon. The first was a disgraceful “diving” penalty assessed to Mats Zuccarello after he was taken down by Andy McDonald…   …wow. Just wow. McDonald was issued an obvious interference...

Vigneault Succeeding Where Tortorella Erred

One of the most frustrating aspects of John Tortorella’s tenure as head coach of the Rangers was his absolute refusal to roll four lines and six defensemen in the playoffs. He attempted to ride his horses to victory, but ultimately just rode them into the ground while the Rangers postseason opponents took advantage of Tortorella’s overuse of key players as the fourth line of...

New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault may not have meant for his comments regarding JT Miller to be “pointy”, but they sure sounded like it at the time. Yesterday, Vigneault clarified his previous comments. Via Katie Strang: “I would say those comments might have been interpreted by you as pointed.
