Yandle’s blunder leads to ‘hockey conversation’ by Vigneault

WASHINGTON — He’s trying to leave it in the past, just like the rest of the team. But that wasn’t so much the case on Monday night, when Keith Yandle...

Rangers notebook: Klein, Yandle ready; Gorton in demand, O’Connor close to decision

GREENBURGH – Keith Yandle on Wednesday declared himself fit and ready to go for Game 1 of the Rangers’ second-round series against Washington at the Garden Thursday. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said that Kevin Klein is also ready, and that barring something unforeseen between practice Wednesday and gametime, Klein would be in the lineup, too. [...] The post Rangers notebook: Klein, Yandle ready; Gorton in demand, O’Connor close to decision appeared first on Rangers Report.

Practice notes: Yandle skates with team; No call-up yet from Hartford; BU’s O’Connor visits

Defenseman Keith Yandle was back on the ice today with his teammates at the Rangers’ noon practice at the Madison Square Garden Training Center for the first time since Game 2 of the first round series against the Penguins. Yandle played in all five games but missed a chunk of the first period in Game 2 after taking a hard hit into the boards from Blake Comeau. Yandle has not participated in a morning skate or team practice since and the team’s explanations have gone from illness to full body soreness to the “sniffles.” Coach Alain Vigneault was asked after today’s practice...

Practice notes: Yandle’s “sniffles,” St. Louis’ hope

Alain Vigneault smiled when asked this afternoon about defenseman Keith Yandle’s latest absence from practice. “Sniffles,” Vigneault said. “He’ll be out there tomorrow.” If so, it would be the first time Yandle, who has played in every playoff game, has practiced with his teammates or participated in a morning skate since Game 2 of the first round series. Yandle missed most of the first period of the Rangers’ 4-3 loss after Blake Comeau ran him into the backboards. ******* Right wing Marty St. Louis,  who had one assist in the Rangers’  five-game win over the Penguins,...

Yandle still not practicing

The Rangers,  now knowing they’ll face the Capitals in the first round, are practicing here at the Madison Square Garden Training Center in Greenburgh, N.Y. Other than Mats Zuccarello, out indefinitely with a suspected concussion, defenseman Keith Yandle is the lone Ranger not on the ice today. Marc Staal, who missed Monday’s practice for maintenance, is back on the ice. Yandle has not practiced or participated in a morning skate since Game 2 of the first period.  In that game, Yandle missed some time in the first period after being slammed into the backboards by Blake Comeau. The...

Klein, Yandle, Zuccarello not participating in Rangers’ practice; Klein skated on own

By Tom Gulitti The Rangers are holding a full practice at Madison Square Garden this afternoon as they prepare for Friday’s Game 5 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Defensemen Kevin Klein and Keith Yandle and right wing Mats Zuccarello are the only players not participating. Klein, who is working his way back from a fractured left arm that’s sidelined him since March 11, skated on his own before practice, but it appears he is not ready to play, yet. The Rangers say Yandle and Zuccarello are taking “maintenance” days. Yandle skipped the morning skates before Game 3 and 4 in...

Rangers-Pens Game 4 Morning skate report: Yandle still ill and Klein nears return but same lineup

The Rangers will have the same lineup for tonight’s Game 4 of their first-round series against the Penguins at Consol Energy Center here in Pittsburgh and it appears as if the Penguins will as well. The Penguins, trailing 2-1 in the series and facing Game 5 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night, are rightfully treating this game as essentially a must-win (though the Rangers proved last year in their second-round series against the Penguins that necessarily isn’t the case, as they advanced after trailing in that series, 3-1). “We know exactly what it is,” Penguins center Maxim...

Rangers vs. Penguins Game 3: Keith Yandle Misses Morning Skate, But Will Play Tonight

Keith Yandle missed today's morning skate in Pittsburgh, but Alain Vigneault confirmed that he will be in the lineup tonight for Game 3. There was yet another scare this morning as Keith Yandle was absent from the New York Rangers morning skate in Pittsburgh prior to Game 3. Yandle left early in the first period of Game 2 after taking a heavy hit from Blake Comeau along the boards, and remained out for a majority of the period before returning. Obviously there was some concern that Yandle's absence today was a result of Saturday's hit, and that there was some lingering issues hanging...

Rangers-Pens Game 3 morning skate report: Yandle sick but will play; Klein skates with team

Both the Rangers and Penguins conducted full morning skates here at Consol Energy Center prior to tonight’s Game 3 of their first-round series, which is tied at a game apiece. For the Rangers, defenseman Keith Yandle was not on the ice but coach Alain Vigneault said he would play tonight despite feeling under the weather. Vigneault, when asked whether Yandle’s illness is akin to what Rick Nash went through recently, said he wasn’t sure,  just that Yandle was ill but would play. Vigneault did say that Yandle was receiving fluids to speed his recovery. Meanwhile,  defenseman Kevin...

Keith Yandle Is Living Up To Expectations

Despite some criticism from the masses, Keith Yandle has played well and is bringing offense from the blue line that the Rangers have not seen since the days of Brian Leetch. Keith Yandle has played 17 games with the Rangers since he was acquired from the Arizona Coyotes prior to the trading deadline. That's not a great sample size to reach a verdict on an acquisition - those who prematurely lamented the Martin St. Louis trade last season learned that the hard way - but it should be enough of a sample to get a good feel for a player's strengths and weaknesses. Though not to the radical...
