The New Jersey Devils Come Out On The Winning End Against The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

A word to the wise and all of our other readers, too: Measuring sticks this time of year come in the shape of candy canes.

But my goodness, did the Devils’ riveting 4-3 shootout victory over the Rangers at the Rock on Thursday ever come in the form of an exclamation point.

This was no Christmas fable, Virginia. Brian Boyle did score both the third-period tying goal and the skills-competition decider against an otherwise spectacular Henrik Lundqvist in this Battle of the Hudson that harkened back to days of yore.

“This was something else … and in a Game 34 in December,” said Boyle, the proud 33-year-old who went to back-to-back Cup finals with the Rangers in 2014 and the Lightning in 2015 and, therefore, knows of what he speaks when it comes to placing things in perspective.

The State Of The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Regarding the Rangers, who with 16 wins in 31 games entering Friday’s Garden match against the Kings, are precisely the ordinary team their record indicates:

1. Stretches such as this one, in which the Blueshirts have played well in one of their past six matches (good versus the Devils while poor against the Panthers, Penguins, Capitals, Stars and Senators) should create clarity for Jeff Gorton as the general manager weighs his options with the Feb. 26 trade deadline coming into view.

Because no matter the paucity of formidable teams in not only the Eastern Conference, but also in the NHL, it is unrealistic to reach the conclusion the Rangers are legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, or even an affordable piece away from becoming one. Hence, it is incumbent upon Gorton to cash in on the expiring assets under his control and accelerate the team’s remodeling, whether it costs ownership a couple of playoff dates or not.

A Much More Confident Pavel Buchnevich

from Alex Prewitt of Sports Illustrate,

Brushing aside some shin guards from the adjacent stall at the New York Rangers’ training facility, Pavel Buchnevich waves a visitor over. 

Welcome. Sit downAn interview? With pleasure.

He hadn’t always felt so comfortable. Seventeen months ago, Buchnevich leapt into an unknown land knowing only his agents, lugging just a small bag of skates and workout clothes, carrying no command of the local tongue. “Zero English, zero understand,” he says. “When I’m kid, at school, parents tell me you need English. I think, ‘What the f---? I never go U.S.”

But look at him now. For the next 15 minutes following a recent practice, Buchnevich winds through subjects ranging from European soccer to Russian saunas, superhero movies to video games. He pauses every so often, recalling certain words, but plows through without apology, adapting on the fly like always. Moving to the Big Apple at 21 years old? “Little scary.” Spending half of his rookie season shelved with an injured back? “Big problem.” Addressing fellow Rangers at the start? “Tough communication.” Talking to teammates today? “More confidence. Very easy.”

Afternoon Line- Rick Nash

“Staying here is my first choice. Definitely, if they come to me with an offer, or indicate they’d like to talk about it at some point during the season, I’d be good with it. I’d certainly be willing to talk and sign a new deal if both sides were happy with it.

“Typically, you like to take care of the business side of it over the summer. You don’t want to get into extended negotiations during the season. And I don’t think I’d go to them, I don’t think it’s really my place. But this is where I want to be. This is home.”

-Rick Nash of the New York Rangers.  Nash will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2018.  Larry Brooks of the New York Post has more.

Brendan Smith In The Headlines For The Wrong Reasons

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Smith’s turnover rate has been alarming. His lack of physical play has been unexpected, given the fact that his nastiness in the first round against Montreal was not only a key to the Blueshirts’ six-game victory, but a major reason why general manager Jeff Gorton went to 17.4 million lengths to keep Smith from becoming a free agent....

It is worth wondering whether, this soon into the union, there is buyer’s/seller’s remorse on Smith’s part. The answer came from Smith’s agent, Anton Thun.

“I’m not sure who’s the buyer and who’s the seller in this case, but there are no regrets at all from Smitty,” Thun told The Post prior to Wednesday’s match. “And while I don’t want to speak for the Rangers, I talk to Jeff pretty regularly and I’ve never gotten that impression from him.

“Smitty’s no dummy. He knows this is a performance-based industry and his hasn’t been where he would like it to be or where it needs to be. He’s just working hard to get back in the lineup.”
