Everything's coming up goals for revitalized Rangers power forward Rick Nash posted on 01/22/2015

The first goal showcased Rick Nash’s dominance. He pounced on a turnover and took off on a 2-on-1 rush. A split-second before the defender could deflect the shot with an outstretched stick, he fired from the left circle and beat the goalie cleanly, giving the New York Rangers a 1-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins 26 seconds into the game Sunday.

The second goal showcased something else. The Rangers won a faceoff. Nash backed up with the puck above the left circle. While still backing up, he flicked the puck on net. It went off the stick of a defender in front, fluttered over the right arm of the goalie and fell across the line. It gave the Rangers a 3-1 lead and turned out to be the winning goal in a 5-2 victory.

There are two parts to Nash’s season: good health and good luck. He’s skating the way he used to skate, and he’s getting the bounces, and he’s tied for the NHL lead with 28 goals. He’s on pace for 53 goals, which would shatter his career high, as he heads to the All-Star Game in Columbus, the city where he spent his first nine NHL seasons.

How will the New York Rangers Deal with Dan Boyle’s Injury? posted on 10/16/2014

The biggest blow for the team was the departure of Brad Richards. The 6’ centerman departed to Chicago after $60 million nine year contract. He scored 20 goals and had 51 points in total. Alain Vigneault and manager Glen Sather will have to fill the gap left by Richards’s departure.

Key Acquisitions

Several acquisitions have been made this season. They include Dan Boyle, Matthew Lombardi, Nick Tarnasky, Chris Mueller, Mike Kostka, Tanner Glass and Lee Stempniak. Unfortunately, the rangers will have to do without Dan Boyle who is currently out on an injury. Boyle, one of the key acquisitions this season broke his hand on the first game of the season.


Finding a replacement for Boyle is one of the biggest headaches for Vigneault this season. Kevin Klein who has played his position in some of the games, has failed miserably to defend the team.  Alain Vigneault may have to seek replacements from outside. Unfortunately, this may not be possible as there aren’t many available players to pick. He may have to go back to his draft.
