Making my way to the ‘Peg (through Chicago) for Tuesday night’s game against the Jets. So just a quick layover dispatch before the next flight to inform that defenseman Chris Summers, 27, has been re-assigned to Hartford (AHL) this morning after being recalled on an emergency basis for Sunday’s 5-2 loss to the Capitals at Madison Square Garden with Matt Hunwick unavailable because of an upper-body injury suffered in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to the Bruins in Boston. With Summers back to the Wolf Pack, the Rangers again have six defensemen on their roster so, presumably, Hunwick, who was...

NEW YORK — It represents a certain level of respect, this supreme lack of worry the Washington Capitals hold for goaltender Braden Holtby. They had ridden him to a franchise-record 27 straight appearances without concern for stamina, and instead with confidence...

If the Rangers keep playing this way in their race for the Presidents' Trophy, they'll have to craft a concession speech.
NEW YORK — Sunday afternoon, the Washington Capitals (40-25-10, 90 points) bused over to Madison Square Garden, unaware of the opportunity awaiting their hosts. With a victory against their Metropolitan Division rivals and a regulation loss by the Islanders, the juggernaut New York Rangers (47-20-7, 101 points) can become the first Eastern Conference team to clinch home-ice advantage playoffs. The Capitals, meanwhile, haven’t quite reached life-support territory for their postseason hopes, and likely won’t barring a significant collapse, but sitting only four points ahead of...
Game 75. Capitals at Rangers. Rangers can clinch home-ice in the first round with a win today and an Islanders regulation loss (against Detroit at 5 p.m.). The Rangers still could play anybody but Montreal, Tampa Bay and Detroit in the first round. … though mathematically they could play anybody. Alain Vigneault on potential [...] The post Capitals at Rangers … It’s Go Time! appeared first on Rangers Report.

The Rangers are well on their way to clinching the Metropolitan Division title but this is a step-by-step process. First, the Rangers clinched a playoff berth with Thursday’s 5-1 win at Ottawa. Today, against the Capitals here at Madison Square Garden, the Rangers can clinch home home-ice advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs if they get two points (a win in regulation, overtime or a shootout) and the Islanders lose in regulation to the Red Wings later this afternoon. That would guarantee the Rangers finish no lower than second in the division. “It’s something that...

The Rangers’ first period in Boston was particularly disappointing because their start was exactly what they'd discussed prior.
Just in: Matt Hunwick is out today with an upper body injury. Defenseman Chris Summers, obtained in the Keith Yandle deal, was recalled from Hartford (AHL) and will make his Rangers debut. Pre-game notes courtesy of the NYR: NEW YORK RANGERS vs. WASHINGTON CAPITALS Sunday, Mar. 29, 2015, 3:00 p.m. ET Madison Square Garden – [...] The post Capitals at Rangers today (3 p.m.) … pre-game notes appeared first on Rangers Report.

Matt Hunwick scored the last goal in the Rangers’ 4-2 loss to the Bruins at Boston on Saturday, with just 22.8 seconds left in the game, but at some point during that game he suffered an upper-body injury. So the sixth defenseman will not be in the lineup as the Rangers host the Capitals this afternoon at Madison Square Garden. Instead, the Rangers have recalled, on an emergency basis, Chris Summers from Hartford (AHL). “It’s just an upper body injury,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. “We think it’s nothing serious but obviously he can’t play today so we called up...
