Rangers plan to stick with lines that had a pulse after jumble

It sounds like Alain Vigneault saw enough positives in Tuesday’s strong final period to stick with his lineup changes.

Of course Derick Brassard is spending his All-Star Break in New York

Of course Derick Brassard is spending his All-Star Break in New York

He has friends to see. Trading Derick Brassard for Mika Zibanejad was a very, very good move. It’s a trade you always make if you’re the New York Rangers; after all, not only is Zibanejad six years younger, but he only has eight fewer points than Brassard in almost half of the games played.

And while he doesn’t explicitly name Zuccarello by name, you can kiiiiinda guess who he’s talking about...

The Rangers’ transformation is ahead of schedule

Well, this sure isn’t the way the Rangers want their first half to be remembered, this 2-0 defeat to the Flyers at the Garden on Wednesday in which they were as much lulled into a state of suspended animation as beaten by their opponent. “A sour game to lose before the break,” Mats Zuccarello told...
