Devils’ Goaltending Problems a Thing of the Past

Things were looking dire for New Jersey Devils’ goaltenders early this season. Cory Schneider had a five-month layoff after offseason hip surgery and did not look like himself when he returned. Keith Kinkaid played in his absence but struggled with a starter’s workload. The Devils suffered as a result and had a quick plummet to the bottom of the NHL. While the Devils’ place in the standings hasn’t changed, it hasn’t been because of their goaltending. Mackenzie Blackwood has put up numbers ...

Notes Before The Puck Drops Tonight

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website, "I thought (Filip) Zadina played his best game that he has with us and that was with Andreas and Glenny (Luke Glendening) as a line, I like that line, I like the Nielsen, Vanek and Helm, I thought Helm was excellent last game, so I got to decide how I want to do that in terms of putting a center up with Mantha and Bert," Blashill said. "Now, Mantha, Larks and Bert have been our best line on a consistent basis, so I got to figure that part of it. The ...

WASHINGTON — Evgeny Kuznetsov scored at 4:20 of overtime, just beating teammate Alex Ovechkin’s stick to the puck, and the Washington Capitals defeated the New York Rangers 6-5 on Sunday in their return from their longest road trip this season.

Henrik Lundqvist gets emotional, unable to answer question about traded teammate

Following a 6-5 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals on Sunday afternoon, the New York Rangers netminder was asked about his relationship with Mats Zuccarello, who was traded to the Dallas Stars the night before.

Rangers Should Rebuild Around Zibanejad

Players like Mika Zibanejad are a rarity in the NHL. He’s a natural leader; a power forward built too strong to be knocked off the puck, yet with soft hands and a tremendous hockey IQ. The Swede is a dynamic, passionate player who isn’t afraid to be physical. He has blossomed into a star on the New York Rangers. Zibanejad is in such a sweet spot in his hockey career, after eight NHL seasons, over 460 career games (468), split between two teams that each made playoff appearances with him on...

What A Night For Alexandar Georgiev

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, This is becoming a ritual for the Rangers. When Henrik Lundqvist turned 36 last March 2, the King faced 51 shots and stopped 50 of them in the Rangers’ 3-1 victory in Calgary. So naturally, when Alexandar Georgiev turned 23 on Sunday, the Bulgarian faced 56 shots and stopped 55 of them in the Blueshirts’ 4-1 victory over the high-octane Maple Leafs at the Garden.

Rangers’ Future Is Bright Between the Pipes

As with any rebuilding effort, uncertainty and disappointment have been as much a part of the New York Rangers’ early journey back to contention as has excitement over the future. Youngsters on the roster have experienced exhilarating highs only to fall back into bad habits and/or periods of little production later. A Baby Blueshirt looks like a future cornerstone one week and an AHL roster staple the next. Someone will respond to being scratched for lackluster play and effort with a stron...

Stamkos Back to Being Stamkos

With the All-Star break over and many teams buckling down for a playoff push, the Tampa Bay Lightning find themselves in an enviable position. Barring a major disaster, they’re almost guaranteed a postseason spot for the fifth time in the past six years. It’s no secret that depth has played a role, as has outstanding goaltending from the duo of Andrei Vasilevskiy and Louis Domingue. The biggest difference, however, has been the play of captain Steven Stamkos. Related: Stamkos Evolving Into...

Ranking the NHL’s 31 Starting Goalies — Midseason Update

Before the season, we ranked all 31 goalies in the NHL. Pekka Rinne, last season’s Vezina Trophy winner, topped the list, narrowly beating out Marc-Andre Fleury and Sergei Bobrovsky. But half of a season is an eternity in the goaltending world. No players’ performances shift more from season to season than NHL net minders. Some of the goalies that topped the list have had awful 2018-19 seasons, and others have been replaced entirely, either due to injury or due to being surpassed by a better opt...

Rangers Buying Out Their Defense Could Lead to Regret

So far, the New York Rangers have been passing the “patience test” during their rebuild. No impulsive big-name free-agent signings or quick-fix trades. No rushing youngsters in the minors who aren’t ready for the NHL level. Just a steady, gradual approach to the process of properly laying a foundation for the future – one they hope will yield consistent playoff appearances and eventually, Stanley Cup contention. The next hurdle on that path will come this offseason when the front office wi...
