Shot Generation Problematic for the Rangers

January 16th, 2015 at 6:00 am by Derek

While the Rangers’ recent streak of 13 wins in 14 games has fans and analysts thinking that this year’s version of the Blueshirts is starting to look a bit like last year’s, I’m not totally convinced.

December 1st, 2014 at 10:20 am by Ross Rhea

As of Monday, the Rangers sat in 3rd place in the Metropolitan Division with 26 points, an 11-8-4 record behind that number. Considering that wouldn’t be good enough for a playoff spot in any other division right now, it shows the Rangers have plenty of work to do now that they are healthy. Ryan McDonagh and Dan
