The New York Rangers have been a part of the NHL ever since 1926 when they were first
formed. They are part of the "original six" teams in the NHL and they have featured in every
season of the competition. New York Rangers tickets always sell well, with fans flocking to
the MSG to see their team in action. As the Rangers are located in the heart of Manhattan,
there are always many takers for New York Rangers tickets. Games are sold out on a regular
The New York Rangers fans have seen quite a bit of success. The team has won seven
division titles, two presidents' trophies, one conference championship, and four Stanley
Cups. However, success has not come in recent times, with the most recent Stanley Cup
coming in 1993-1994.
The past five seasons have been hard for New York Rangers tickets holders. The team has
been close but not good enough to reach the Stanley Cup finals. The team lost in the semis
in 2007-08, the QFs in 2008-09, the QFs in 2010-11, and the Conference finals in 2011-12 to
the Devils. In 2009-10 the team did not even make the playoffs. New York Rangers tickets
holders will be hoping that the team can reach the Stanley Cup final in 2012-2013.
The team has had plenty of star players in the past. The likes of Phil Esposito, Mike Gartner,
Brad Park, Buddy O'Connor, and Harry Lumley are fan favorites and have had some great
times playing for the New York Rangers.
The New York Rangers play their home games at Madison Square Garden, in New York, NY.
The team has been there ever since 1968 and the arena can hold 18,200 for hockey games.
The arena also hosts basketball games, lacrosse games, concerts, boxing events, and theater
productions. The hockey games sell very well, as New York Rangers tickets are always sold
out for home games. Even random regular season games will see New York Rangers tickets
being sold out very quickly.
The thing about New York Rangers fans is that they were very accustomed to success,
particularly because of the great history that their team has. However, recent times have
not been easy. There have been some poor years and there have been plenty of near
misses. The New York Rangers tickets holders have seen their side come within a few odd
results from appearing in the Stanley Cup finals. However, it has all been to no avail. Yet,
fans still keep coming back for more.
New York Rangers tickets holders will be hoping that the team's management can sort out
the side and ensure that they are even closer to the Stanley Cup next year. the team has
acquired seven new players through trades and the draft, and fans will hope these
individuals have a positive impact. Anyone who plays for the Rangers has a huge
responsibility, as the fans will demand the best.
New York Rangers home matches at the Madison Square Garden are always a spectacle.
There is always a lot of cheering and a lot of noise throughout the game, no matter how the
result is going.
12-2-13: The Rangers went 2-2-0 in the last seven days, winning and losing to good and poor teams alike. Their 5-2 victory over John Tortorella’s Vancouver Canucks to close out the week was a nice touch. Their 5-0 loss to the Stamkos-less Lightning, however, wasn’t pleasant. New York’s defensemen have struggled this season with the exception of Ryan McDonagh. McDonagh, who has 15 points in 27 games, has triple the production of any of his fellow Ranger defenseman and is on pace for a career-best season.
11-25-13: Hard to believe but the Rangers are in a playoff spot. After their brutal start to the year, the Rangers have turned things around going 6-4 over their last 10 games played. They went 2-1 this past week with wins over Nashville and Dallas. Their lone loss came against the Bruins. The Rangers can seek revenge over the Bruins as they travel to Boston this week for a Black Friday matinee game. John Tortorella returns New York for the first time Saturday, since being fired in the offseason.
11-18-13: The Rangers continue to struggle to find their offensive groove. In three games last week, New York managed only three goals. In fairness, the Rangers ran into some pretty hot goalies. Marty Brodeur turned aside 33 or 35 shots his saw. Carey Price stopped 33 of 34 shots thrown his way and Ben Scrivens posted a shutout. The Rangers are 9-1-0 when they score they first goal this season. That’s good for first in the NHL.
11-12-13: The Rangers won three of four games this past week with their lone loss coming to the hands of the NHL’s best team in the Anaheim Ducks. The Rangers have now won six of their last eight games. Henrik Lundqvist seems to have turned around his early season struggles. King Henrik has two shutouts and has only allowed more than three goals twice since he gave up six goals back on October 10th. Now only if Rick Nash can get healthy.
11-5-13: Have the Rangers turned the corner? They had a strong week with wins Carolina, Buffalo, and the Islanders and outscored them by a 10-3 margin. How about a nice applause for Brad Richards? After being a candidate for a compliance buyout last season, Richards has 5 goals and 10 points through 14 games. His 53.8% Corsi rating leads all Ranger forwards. I guess John Tortorella’s departure is a reason why Richards is thriving. Things could be looking up for the boys of Broadway.
10-29-13: The Rangers are struggling mightily. They started off the week with a 2-1 loss to the lowly Flyers and did beat a good Red Wings squad. The Rangers went 3-6-0 on their epic nine game road trip to start the season. Five of those nine games came against the more competitive Western Conference. They play their next nine of 12 games at MSG, with only two of those games coming against the Western Conference. For the Rangers, it’s good to be home.
10-21-13: They followed up a big victory against Washington last week with a clunker of game against the Devils last Saturday in Newark. The Rangers have given up a total of 29 goals on the year and Henrik Lundqvist has been poor. New York has started their first nine games on the road and will return to MSG next Monday for the home opener versus Montreal. Injuries to Carl Hagelin, Rick Nash, and Ryan Callahan have decimated this team early on.
The Rangers have been outscored 25-9 through their first five games. With brutal losses to San Jose and Anaheim 9-2 and 6-0 respectively the players, not head coach Alain Vigneault are to blame for their early struggles. Henrik Lundqvist has not been the issue. He can blame his teammates with their sloppy puck management and shoddy defense. The Rangers desperately need left winger Carl Hagelin to return from injury. GM Glen Sather is never afraid to make a splash personnel wise.
10-7-13: With the way the Rangers schedule plays out they have only played one game so far. They looked awful in their opening-night loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. The Rangers played poor in the pre-season and there could be some early warning signs for the Broadway Blueshirts.
8-22-13: There is new coach in NYC as John Tortorella was fired and Alain Vigneault was hired in his place. The Rangers should still be considered a cup contender because of the talent and depth they have, plus they still have Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes. Tortorella makes his return to Broadway on Nov. 30 as the Rangers host the Canucks. Fired Canucks coach Alain Vigneault will visit Vancouver on Apr. 1. The Rangers play the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26 and then the New York Islanders on Jan. 29 at Yankee Stadium as part of the Coors Light Stadium Series.
8-3-13: The NY Rangers have agreed to terms with undrafted free agent 19-year-old defenseman Troy Donnay.
8-1-13: The Rangers has agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Mats Zuccarello on a new deal. The 25-year-old
scored three goals and five assists in 15 games last season with the Blueshirts.
