Moore made himself the focus of another one of these dangerous hits Monday night, delivering a high hit to Erik Haula that knocked the Wild forward out of the game,...

UPDATED: John Moore to face disciplinary hearing

Rangers defenseman John Moore will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL regarding supplemental discipline for his high hit on the Wild’s Erik Haula in Monday night’s wild 5-4 comeback win at Madison Square Garden.

Expectations, Opportunities, and John Moore

Is this the season where we see John Moore become something special? This season is a big one for John Moore. The Rangers gave him a one-year deal at the eleventh hour of the offseason, which means that, once again, Moore is in a contract year (and will again be an RFA). The Rangers' lack of hurry to sign him did have a lot to do with the fact that he was a restricted free agent, but that doesn't change the fact that re-signing Moore was not high on the Rangers' list of offseason priorities. However, the Rangers did seem comfortable in having John Moore in the mix this season as their...

John Moore: “It’s time to get going”

Defenseman John Moore said after this morning’s optional skate that coach Alain Vigneault’s critical comments regarding the play of the Rangers’ defensemen the previous day were wholly warranted. To review, here’s today’s article in the Record detailing how Vigneault called out his defensemen, specifically his top three of Marc Staal, Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi, to play up to their standards. “We know what we need to do and we’re far below our level right now,” Moore said. “We’re aware of it. It’s certainly not for a lack of effort. But it’s time to get going...
