News: Kreider (hand) did not practice Saturday and remains out indefinitely, The Record reports.
Impact: Kreider underwent surgery on his hand in late-March and has not taken the ice since Mar. 24. A date for his return has not been established, but the fact that he did not skate Saturday isn't a strong indication that he's close to coming back.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | STATS
News: Richards had a goal and two assists as the New York Rangers beat Philadelphia 4-1 in the playoff opener on Thursday night to stretch their home-winning streak over the rival Flyers to nine games.
Impact: Richards had one goal in 10 postseason games for New York in 2013. He has 29 goals and 52 assists in 94 career playoff contests.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Miller served as a healthy scratch in the team's 4-1, Game 1 victory over Philadelphia on Thursday.
Impact: Although he was recalled from AHL Hartford prior to the start of the series, there's no guarantee the gritty winger with offensive upside will actually dress in the first round. For now, it appears the organization's other highly touted young winger, Jesper Fast, has the inside track on the team's 12th forward spot and with Fast getting an assist in his playoff debut, Miller will be on the outside looking in for now.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hagelin found the back of the net for a goal on three shots in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia on Thursday.
Impact: More important than the goal, Hagelin drew a critical double-minor penalty on Jason Akeson for high-sticking. The Rangers' power play would end up scoring on both man advantages, completely changing the momentum of the contest. The 25-year-old winger now has 10 points (four goals) through 30 career playoff games.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stepan netted a power-play goal in Thursday's 4-1 playoff-opening win over Philadelphia.
Impact: The goal came on the back end of a four-minute power play and ended up as padding to the Rangers' third-period lead, serving almost as a nail in the coffin. Stepan, who ended the season second (57 points in 82 games) in team scoring, has six goals and nine assists through 38 career playoff games.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis nabbed two assists in Thursday's 4-1, Game 1 win over Philadelphia.
Impact: From fantasy owners to organizational brass, you could almost hear a collective sigh when St. Louis dished the puck to Brad Richards for the eventual game-winning goal. With the team finishing off a four-minute power play, St. Louis added his second assist of the night less than a minute later on Derek Stepan's goal. After collecting just eight points in 19 games since being acquired from Tampa Bay at the deadline, the 38-year-old winger is off to a healthy start in his first playoff run with the blue shirts.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Staal collected an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.
Impact: What a difference a year can make for the veteran defenseman. It was a little over a year ago that Staal had to leave after taking a puck to the eye against the Flyers, then quickly exited his one and only playoff game against the Capitals last season due to a recurrence of symptoms from the injury. The 27-year-old defenseman has five goals and seven assists through 44 career playoff games.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fast notched an assist and four hits in Thursday's 4-1 Game 1 win over Philadelphia.
Impact: Not bad for a guy who logged less than 12 minutes of ice time in his postseason debut. Despite posting eggs and a minus-5 rating through the first 11 NHL games of his career, the highly touted winger picked a perfect time to log his first NHL point. Dynasty owners have got to feel good about his chances to make next season's roster if the 22-year-old Swede can continue his timely production.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Falk served as a healthy scratch in Thursday's game one win over Philadelphia.
Impact: Not a big surprise here, as Falk has been the odd man out for most of the season. With the recently acquired Raphael Diaz ahead of him on the depth chart, unless multiple defensemen fall prey to an injury it seems very likely Falk will have to watch his team's playoff run from the press box.
Fri. Apr 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Klein registered four hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.
Impact: As the new guy on New York's point, Klein logged just over 16 minutes in his Blueshirts' playoff debut. Considering he's not likely to serve on the team's power play, Klein is doing well flying under the radar and solidifying the defense. While he'll never bring home the bacon offensively, prior to being traded Klein had registered nine points (three goals) in 28 career playoff games for Nashville.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Richards scored a power-play goal and chipped in two assists in Thursday's Game 1 win over the Flyers.
Impact: Playoff poolers have to be happy about that, although Richards probably wasn't the trendiest pick after recording just a single point in 10 playoff games for the Rangers last year. It'll be huge for the Blueshirts if he can keep this up as the playoffs continue.
Thu. Apr 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist faced just 15 shots, stopping 14, in Thursday's Game 1 win over the Flyers.
Impact: The Rangers outplayed Philadelphia quite thoroughly in this one, and as a result, Lundqvist surprisingly didn't have a lot of work to do. Of course, the Rangers will surely have to lean on him heavily as the playoffs continue.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (shoulder) is ready to go for Thursday's Game 1 against the Flyers, the Bergen Record reports.
Impact: McDonagh said he has full range of motion in his recently injured shoulder, and is back to 100 percent. Whether or not that's true remains to be seen, but he added that he's excited to play Thursday, so fantasy owners can count on him being in the lineup for their playoff pools.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brassard (back) will play in Game 1 on Thursday against the Flyers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Impact: The center left practice Tuesday with a back issue, but claims he could have kept playing if it were a game. He said he feels 100 percent now, so his back should be a non-factor moving forward.
Wed. Apr 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brassard (back) practiced with the team Wednesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Impact: Brassard left Tuesday's practice after hurting his back, but head coach Alain Vigneault said he expected the center to be available for Thursday's Game 1 against the Flyers. The fact that he was back on the ice Wednesday makes him look like a pretty safe bet to play at this point.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) took part in practice Tuesday and is expected to play in Thursday's playoff opener against the Flyers, Blueshirts United reports.
Impact: McDonagh missed the last five games of the regular season with an injured arm, but he'll resume his role on the Rangers' top defensive pairing in the postseason.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kreider, who is bouncing back from surgery on his left hand, remains out indefinitely, The Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Impact: Given his uncertain status at this stage, Kreider -- who last played on March 24 -- makes for a risky roll for those in playoff formats, with the Rangers opening their postseason slate Thursday against the Flyers.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brassard left Tuesday's practice holding his lower back, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Impact: Brassard is thus day-to-day as Thursday's playoff opener against the Flyers approaches.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Rangers recalled Miller from AHL Hartford on Monday.
Impact: The center will join the roster in advance of Thursday's Game 1 against the Flyers. Miller split time between the AHL and NHL this season, but was able to collect three goals and three assists in 30 games with the Rangers.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Talbot was the hard luck loser Saturday in a 1-0 overtime loss to Montreal on Saturday. The winning goal was scored on a penalty shot.
Impact: He made 26 saves. He had shut out the Habs the first time he faced them back in November.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Girardi will not suit up for Saturday's game against the Canadiens.
Impact: Girardi is healthy but will likely take a seat for a rest before the Rangers' playoff run. He should be in the lineup for the Rangers' first playoff game.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis is in line to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Montreal.
Impact: The report adds that the same applies to Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi, with the Rangers electing to rest some key cogs in their regular season finale.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) is apparently healthy enough to go but will sit on Saturday.
Impact: McDonagh skated with the team in morning skate on Saturday but will be out. Although he won't play in the season finale, McDonagh will likely be in the lineup for the Rangers' first playoff game.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis will be out of Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Impact: St. Louis is likely just taking a rest before the playoff run for the Rangers. He will take a seat for the regular season finale, but will likely be back for the Rangers' first playoff game.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Talbot will be in goal for the Rangers on Saturday.
Impact: Talbot will start in place of Henrik Lundqvist on Saturday for the regular season finale. It will be the backup netminder's first start since March 30.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) skated with the team on Saturday morning.
Impact: McDonagh skated on his own on Friday, so the fact that he joined the team on Saturday is encouraging for his status on Saturday night.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist stopped 23 of 24 shots in Thursday's 2-1 victory over Buffalo.
Impact: With head coach Alain Vigneault reportedly considering giving Cam Talbot the start against Montreal in the Rangers' regular-season finale on Saturday, this was a good final tuneup for King Henrik as he prepares for the playoffs to begin next week. If he does end up sitting Saturday, the 32-year-old netminder will end the season with a 33-25-5 record in 64 games played this season.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Zuccarello collected a helper in Thursday's 2-1 win over Buffalo.
Impact: Fantasy owners have got to be pleased with the production out of this mid-rounder. In addition to his current six-game point (nine points) streak, Zuccarello has had fantastic production throughout the year and as a result shattered his career-high in goals, assists and points. Through 75 games, The Norwegian Hobbit is plus-11 with 19 goals and 40 assists.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stepan registered an assist in Thursday's 2-1 victory over Buffalo.
Impact: Stepan also won 14 of 20 faceoffs in the win while skating for just under 17 minutes of ice time. The fourth-year center will look increase his career-high 57 points when the Rangers travel to Montreal for the regular-season finale on Saturday.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis had an assist on Rick Nash's game-winner in Thursday's 2-1 win over Buffalo.
Impact: The pass was crisp and left goalie Matt Hackett with virtually no chance of stopping the slapper. The helper gives St. Louis four points (all assists) in his last two games and marks his first point streak (two games) since joining the Blueshirts at the trade deadline.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pouliot scored one of the team's two goals in a 2-1 win over Buffalo on Thursday.
Impact: The production has been very consistent recently for former the first round pick. Pouliot, who has a career-high 35 points through 78 games, has especially come on since March, posting seven points (three goals) in as many games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nash scored the game-winning goal with under two minutes remaining in the third period of Thursday's 2-1 win over Buffalo.
Impact: Nash's 26th goal of the season couldn't have come at a better time and even snaps a personal three-game scoring drought. Despite one of the nost pedestrian offensive seasons in quite some time, by finding the back of the net, he sets a new career high with his ninth game-winning goal of the season.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) will skate on his own Friday.
Impact: McDonagh, who has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Sabres, will perform off-ice workouts while the team takes part in morning skate before taking to the ice Friday. He'll then take part in morning skate Saturday, at which point it will be decided whether he'll be able to play in the Rangers' regular-season finale against the Canadiens.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: St. Louis finished with three assists in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.
Impact: St. Louis' three points matched his total from the previous 15 games.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Lundqvist made 27 saves in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.
Impact: Lundqvist has posted a 1.99 GAA since Jan. 8 while racking up 20 wins, the second-most in the NHL during that time.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | STATS
News: Richards scored twice in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.
Impact: Richards' two goals matched his total from the previous 17 games. He has 20 to go with 31 assists on the season.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Kreider skated before practice Wednesday, reports Andrew Gross of The Bergen Record.
Impact: It's the second consecutive day the talented young winger has skated prior to the team's official practice. Although he was observed wearing just a black brace and no glove, it certainly appears he's making quick progress for someone who just had surgery less than two weeks ago. However, with just two games remaining in the regular season, this news should only impact dynasty league owners. In his first full season in the NHL, Kreider registered an outstanding plus-14 rating with 17 goals (six power-play tallies), 20 assists and 72 penalty minutes in 66 games played.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Alain Vigneault ruled McDonagh (arm) out for Thursday's game against the Sabres and said it was "50/50" whether or not the defenseman would play in the regular season finale against the Canadiens on Saturday, Jim Cerny of BlueshirtsUnited.com reports.
Impact: After injuring his shoulder more than a week ago, McDonagh was able to skate for a second straight day Tuesday, but is still not quite 100 percent healthy. McDonagh will likely have to get in some contact work in practice before being cleared for a return.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Girardi collected an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.
Impact: That's two points (both assists) in his last three games. We're not saying it will last, but the regular season is nearing completion and anything goes at this time of the year, especially with Ryan McDonagh missing from the lineup. Girardi is a plus-5 with five goals and 19 assists through 80 games played.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist will start in net Thursday against the Sabres.
Impact: Lundqvist is 32-24-5 on the season, and ranks second in the whole league with 62 games played. He's been playing well lately, too, stopping 27 of 28 shots last time out in a 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday.
Impact: It was McDonagh's second straight practice on the ice, although he's clearly not ready to draw back into the lineup just yet. Keep an eye out for the blueliner to be cleared for contact, at which point his return should be imminent.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Pouliot scored a goal on his only shot in Tuesday's win over Carolina, pushing his point streak to six games.
Impact: He's recorded exactly one point in each of those games, so let's not get overly excited, but nonetheless, Pouliot has been pleasantly productive recently, powering him to a career-high 35 points.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Zuccarello picked up an assist Tuesday against Carolina, pushing his point streak to five games.
Impact: He's totaled eight points -- evenly split between goals and assists -- in that span, adding a plus-2 rating and two PIM to boot. This has been a big breakout year for Zucc, , and it's perhaps worth noting that Zucc is following a career path not dissimilar to that of his now-teammate Martin St. Louis, another super-talented, but undersized guy who didn't start putting up big point totals until his late 20s.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stralman picked up a pair of assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's win over the Hurricanes.
Impact: Nice to see, but these are rare points for Stralman -- he's got just 13 in 79 games this season. Though he does have some offensive skill, that's not really his role on this Rangers team.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Stepan scored a goal, added an assist and went plus-1 in Tuesday's win over Carolina.
Impact: With six points in his last five games, Stepan just keeps on producing. With 56 points on the year, he's got a shot at his first 60-point season if he can stay hot over the last two games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Richards scored a pair of power-play goals in Tuesday's victory over Carolina, giving him 20 on the season.
Impact: Richards has now reached 20 goals for the 10th time since entering the league in 2000-01. He also cleared 50 points with this fine night, the 11th time that's happened in his career. Nonetheless, this has been by far the worst full season of his career.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis dished out three assists -- two of them on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
Impact: Incredibly, that's Marty's first multi-point game in 18 contests since joining the Rangers. He worked well with linemates Rick Nash and Derek Stepan in this one, and the Rangers have to be hoping that trio can carry this chemistry forward as the playoffs approach.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist stopped 27 of 28 shots in Tuesday's victory over Carolina.
Impact: King Henrik had dropped three of his last four, but he got back on track in this one, helping to propel the Rangers toward home-ice advantage in the playoffs.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Boyle will return to his fourth-line duties against Carolina on Tuesday, reports The Record's Andrew Gross.
Impact: After producing minimally (one assist) on the second line, Boyle will once again play alongside Dominic Moore and Daniel Carcillo. While the reduced ice time will likely end any experimental waiver claims made by owners in deep leagues, the veteran forward could surprise us by producing in his return to a line that has shown tremendous chemistry at times. Boyle is plus-1 with six goals, 12 assists and 54 penalty minutes through 79 games played this season.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fast will dress for Tuesday's tilt against Carolina, reports The Record's Andrew Gross.
Impact: More intriguing is the fact that Fast will play on the second line with center Brad Richards and winger Carl Hagelin. Fast, who had 17 goals (34 points) in 48 games with Hartford of the AHL, is considered one of the organization's most promising prospects.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: St. Louis will skate on the first line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash versus Carolina on Tuesday, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Impact: With prospect Jesper Fast getting a chance to skate with Brad Richards and Carl Hagelin, St. Louis will look to dig out of his slump with the team's most talented forwards. Although this combination didn't seem to work the last time head coach Alain Vigneault pieced it together, any change is most assuredly welcomed by fantasy owners. The 2003-04 Hart Trophy winner has just one goal and three assists since coming over for Ryan Callahan at the trade deadline.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) took light wrist shots on net in Tuesday's team practice and isn't likely to play against Carolina, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Impact: The defenseman was also observed feeding winger Marty St. Louis one-timers. While it appears McDonagh is getting back in the saddle, with the team having already punched their ticket to the playoffs, it's not likely the organization will risk McDoangh's long-term health for a chance at home-ice advantage. However, here's a chance the offensively potent blueliner comes back to regain his timing in one of the team's two remaining regular-season games.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Moore is minus-1 during his current four-game scoreless drought.
Impact: No, it's not surprising to see a fourth-line center go four games without registering a point, but the veteran center's game log suggests that may come to an end in Tuesday's tilt with Carolina. Since mid-December, Moore has consistently found the scorer's sheet at least once every four to five games. While that won't help out fantasy owners, it could certainly bode well for a team trying to lock up home-ice advantage in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Staal was given The John Halligan Good Guy Award by the Metro NY/NJ media, reports reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Impact: Ironically enough, the award comes on the heels of Staal uncharacteristically leaving the locker room before reporters could question him about a latehit from Chris Neil in Saturday's loss to Ottawa. Obviously, this type of recognition has little impact on Staal's declining offensive production. The veteran, who has been logging more time with stay-at-home defenseman Anton Stralman of late, is minus-3 with three goals and 11 assists in 69 games played this season.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes, the New York Daily News reports.
Impact: Lundqvist, who will be making his 61st start of the season and fourth in a row for the Rangers on Tuesday, last gave way to backup Cam Talbot on March 30.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Rangers have recalled Fast from AHL Hartford.
Impact: Fast has notched 34 points in 48 AHL games to date, but has yet to record a point in eight outings with the big club thus far. He'll bolster the Rangers' depth up front.
Apr 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist made 31 saves in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.
Impact: Although his mates won the shots-on-goal battle by a 43-34 count, Lundqvist was unable to keep pace with opposing goalie Robin Lehner. After posting a five-game winning streak from March 18-26, Lundqvist has now lost three of his last four starts.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Zuccarello scored both Rangers' goals in Saturday's loss to the Senators. The points extended his current point streak to four games and seven points (four goals, three assists).
Impact: The Norwegian Hobbit has exploded this season and now has 19 goals and 38 assists (57 points) in 74 games. He also lays hits (113 overall). The little guy is a valuable fantasy asset. Use him well.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lundqvist will start in goal Saturday against the Senators, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Impact: The Rangers will stick with the same lineup from Thursday, meaning it will be Lundqvist minding the net for the 11th time in 12 games. Lundqvist has followed up a strong month of March (2.44 GAA, .917 save percentage) by stopping 69 of 72 shots in two games to begin April.
Sat. Apr 5, 2014 | RotoWire
News: McDonagh (arm) will not play Saturday against the Senators, ESPN's Katie Strang reports.
Impact: McDonagh's set to miss a second straight game with the arm injury, but coach Alain Vigneault indicated Thursday that he doesn't expect the 24-year-old to be out for long. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against Carolina until there's indication otherwise.
Wed. Apr 2, 2014 | STATS
News: St. Louis scored his first goal with the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist made 34 saves as New York defeated the Vancouver Canucks 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Impact: St. Louis, who has 30 goals this season, had not scored in his first 14 games since joining the Rangers. His first with New York was the club's third short-handed goal in the past two games.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with McCarthy, who played college hockey at Vermont. The deal was announced on Monday while the Rangers were in Vancouver, preparing for Tuesday night's game against the Canucks.
Impact: The 22-year-old McCarthy, who sat out his junior season because of injury, had 18 goals and 24 assists in 38 games with Vermont this season.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Talbot needed 26 saves to record his third shutout of the season in a 5-0 win over Edmonton on Sunday.
Impact: Talbot is 12-6-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average in 20 appearances this season.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Zuccarello fired home a pair of scores and added an assist in a 5-0 win over Edmonton on Sunday.
Impact: Zuccarello hadn't scored in his previous 17 contests. He has 17 goals and 36 assists on the season.
Mon. Mar 31, 2014 | STATS
News: Nash finished with two goals in a 5-0 win at Edmonton on Sunday.
Impact: Nash has five goals over his last five road games.
