Derek Stepan (leg) is expected to resume skating soon.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wasn't sure exactly when that would be, but he added that he hasn't been asking for daily updates on Stepan's condition. The Rangers put Stepan on the long-term injured reserve list, which means that he can't return until Nov. 3 at the earliest.

Chris Mueller scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday.

It was also Mueller's first goal in a Rangers uniform. The 28-year-old forward has 10 points in 48 career NHL games.
Oct 22 - 10:33 AM

Rick Nash has a commanding lead in the NHL's goal scoring race.

Nash scored his eighth goal of the season on Tuesday, putting him three markers ahead of the nine players that are tied for second place. Nash has played in just seven games this season. Obviously, we expect him to cool down at some point, but it seems fair to believe that this won't be a repeat of his disappointing 39-point 2013-14 campaign.
Oct 22 - 10:30 AM

Kevin Klein (face) was able to play on Tuesday.

Klein's status was in doubt after he was struck in the face by the puck in the final seconds of Sunday's game. He went on to score the overtime winner in the Rangers' 4-3 victory over New Jersey.
Oct 22 - 1:47 AM

Chris Kreider picked up a pair of points for the Rangers in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory in New Jersey.

Kreider opened the scoring with a power play marker in the first period and drew an assist on Kevin Klein's overtime winner, bringing his season total to six points in seven outings. Rick Nash and Chris Mueller also scored for the Blueshirts while Ryan McDonagh earned two helpers.
Oct 21 - 10:07 PM

Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers went into New Jersey Tuesday night and upended the Devils in overtime by a score of 4-3.

King Henrik turned aside 28 of 31 shots in the victory and has shaken off a poor stretch to post three straight wins. His record now stands at 4-2-0 while his GAA is 3.15 and his save percentage checks in at .894.
Oct 21 - 10:04 PM

Daniel Girardi (leg) will be in the Rangers' lineup on Tuesday.

Girardi was questionable after blocking a shot on Sunday. He's a big part of the Rangers' defense, but he isn't a top blueliner from an offensive standpoint.
Oct 21 - 12:46 PM

Daniel Girardi (leg) wasn't on the ice with the Rangers on Monday.

Girardi is questionable for Tuesday's game against the New Jersey Devils. He has an assist in six contests in 2014-15.
Oct 21 - 9:56 AM

Kevin Klein was hit in the face by the puck in the dying seconds of Sunday's game.

Klein needed stitches as a result. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault regards his status as day-to-day.
Oct 20 - 8:53 AM

Daniel Girardi needed stitches on his leg after blocking a shot on Sunday.

Girardi's night ended early due to the incident. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault called him day-to-day.
Oct 20 - 8:50 AM

Dan Girardi left Sunday’s game against the Sharks after blocking a shot.

Girardi left the game early in the third period and did not return. There is no word on how serious the injury is. He is considered day-to-day right now.
Oct 19 - 7:43 PM

Rick Nash scored his league-leading seventh goal of the season in New York’s 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

Nash scored late in the second period to make it 3-0 for the Rangers. It’s nice to see that his concussion issues are behind him. The 30-year-old was limited to 65 games last season. Nash now has eight points in six games. He’s back to being one of the better snipers in the league. Carl Hagelin, Martin St. Louis and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Rangers.
Oct 19 - 7:42 PM

Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 33 shots he faced in New York’s 4-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

After allowing six goals in back-to-back games, Lundqvist has now allowed just one goal in his last two starts. Despite the slow start, the Rangers goaltender should still be considered an elite goalie in the NHL.
Oct 19 - 7:42 PM

The New York Rangers have put defenseman Dan Boyle (broken hand) on the injured reserve list.

The defenseman was injured opening night and the move is retroactive. He is expected to return from the broken hand in mid-November.
Oct 19 - 8:21 AM

Kevin Hayes is enjoying his time on the first line with Rick Nash and Chris Kreider.

The move was made in the third period against Carolina on Thursday and the trio will at least start Sunday's game together. "Playing with two guys like this is pretty unbelievable," Hayes said. "With their speed and their size, we should be able to control down low and hold onto the puck and get some good scoring opportunities." Hayes will lose the spot when Derek Stepan returns from injury which could be as early as November 3 but he will learn a lot in the meantime. He is pointless in three games with a minus-three rating.
