Insight: The rookie has outplayed starter Henrik Lundqvist this season and is 12-6-0 with a 1.67 GAA, a .940 SV% and three shutouts. Lundqvist gave up four goals Friday but has otherwise played pretty well lately, so we probably won't see Talbot start more than one of New York's last six games.

Description: Rangers right wing Ryan Callahan played a huge role in Tuesday's win against the Avalanche.
Insight: Callahan took six shots on goal and scored on two of them. He assisted on another goal and finished the night with a +3 rating. Callahan has been angling for a contract extension and performances like this will certainly help his cause.

Insight: Klein is not an offensive threat like the man he was traded for, Michael Del Zotto, but is a solid defender. Klein has three points in 48 games with just 21 PIM and 50 SOG. That won't help fantasy owners.
Henrik Lundqvist, GHot1/22/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist practiced Wednesday after missing Tuesday's game due to illness. SOURCE: Pat Leonard, New York Daily News.
Insight: Lundqvist's stats -- 17-17-3, 2.54 GAA, .915 SV% -- are disappointing but he has played better this month, going 5-1 with a 1.34 GAA and a .958 SV% his last six starts. He should be able to play Thursday against the Blues.

Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot will start Tuesday against the Islanders.
Insight: The 26-year-old Talbot is 10-3-0 with a 1.62 GAA and a .940 SV%, so this is an opportunity to steal a win if he's still available in your league.
Henrik Lundqvist, G1/21/2014 12:19:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will sit on Tuesday, due to illness, in favor of Cameron Talbot.

Description: New York center Dominic Moore made his presence felt by potting two goals Saturday in a 7-1 win over Toronto.

Description: Rangers goalie Cam Talbot blocked 25 pucks in 65 minutes and two of three in the shootout to win Monday's game against Toronto.

Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has given up at least three goals in each of his last seven starts.
Insight: He gave up four on just 19 shots Friday against the Islanders and clearly isn't playing his best hockey right now. Fantasy owners should put him on the bench for the time being.
Derick Brassard, C12/15/2013 10:31:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Derick Brassard is questionable for Sunday's game against Calgary with a lower body injury.
Insight: Brassard has five goals and nine assists in 32 games, but a -9 rating should send fantasy owners running in the opposite direction. Much more was expected out of him after he totaled 11 points in 13 games for the Rangers following a trade last season.

Description: Rangers defenseman Mark Staal is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington with head/chin injuries.
Insight: He scored two goals and three points in 30 games so his health, or lack of it, won't change any fantasy lineups.
Mats Zuccarello, LWHot12/5/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Rangers left winger Mats Zuccarello has three goals and eight points over his last seven games, including two (1 G, 1 A) Thursday at Buffalo.

Henrik Lundqvist, G12/4/2013 10:21:00 AM
Description: The Rangers inked goaltender Henrik Lundqvist to a seven-year, $59.5 million contract extension on Wednesday. SOURCE: NESN
Insight: Lundqvist was going to be a free agent after the season. You could argue he's been the best goaltender in hockey over the last half-decade. Lundqvist will be 39 by the time his contract expires.
Rick Nash, LWHot11/30/2013 9:05:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash has scored a goal in three straight games.
Insight: He had a goal, two assists, five SOG and a +3 Saturday against the Canucks in what was by far his best game of the season for fantasy purposes. The winger appears to be rounding back into form after missing six weeks due to a concussion.
Chris Kreider, LW11/30/2013 9:02:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Chris Kreider's first career hat trick Saturday against the Canucks gave him six goals and 16 points in 20 games this season.
Insight: The 22-year-old former first-rounder has attempted 51 SOG. He finished with 13 points in 15 November games.
Derek Dorsett, RW11/29/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Rangers winger Derek Dorsett is questionable for Friday's game against Boston due to a sore wrist.
Insight: He missed Wednesday's game because of the injury. Dorsett hasn't scored a point in his last seven games and has just three points in 24 games this season, but if you need penalty minutes he's your man.
Cam Talbot, GHot11/24/2013 10:47:00 AM
Description: Rangers goalie Cam Talbot earned his second straight shutout Saturday against Nashville.
Insight: He stopped all 17 shots that came his way. It's too bad that Talbot plays for New York, a team that already employs Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist as its starting goaltender. Talbot could be a top fantasy netminder if he played almost anywhere else.
Cam Talbot, GHot11/23/2013 2:48:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot will start at Nashville Saturday.
Insight: Talbot, a 26-year-old rookie, has been excellent since taking over for Martin Biron as Henrik Lundqvist's backup. He's won four straight games and is 4-1-0 with a 1.58 GAA and a .943 SV%. He has a strong matchup Saturday and is a safe streaming option.
Michael Del Zotto, D11/20/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto will play Wednesday, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Del Zotto has been a healthy scratch in three straight games and could soon be traded. He won't be worth owning if he remains on the Rangers; he was replaced by Ryan McDonagh on the top power-play line.
Rick Nash, LW11/19/2013 1:43:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (concussion) was activated from the injured reserve and is probable for Tuesday's game against Boston.
Insight: Nash is a big time scorer and fantasy owners need to get him back in the lineup tonight. He scored 42 points in 44 games last season and had three points in three games before the concussion.
Cam Talbot, G11/16/2013 10:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot went into Montreal and picked up his first career shutout Saturday night.
Insight: It was New York's first shutout in Montreal since 1967. The Rangers also had been shut out four straight times at the Bell Centre. Talbot, a 26-year-old rookie, has been excellent since taking over for Martin Biron as Henrik Lundqvist's backup. He's won four straight games and is 4-1-0 with a 1.58 GAA and a .943 SV%.
Ryan Callahan, RWHot11/16/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Ryan Callahan scored his sixth goal of the season Saturday against Montreal.
Insight: The Rangers captain has eight points in 11 games this season, a level of production he should continue to provide.
Cam Talbot, G11/16/2013 5:29:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot will start Saturday at Montreal.
Insight: Talbot has been excellent since getting the callup from the AHL. He's 3-1-0 with a 1.97 GAA and a .933 SV%, but he'll only have fantasy value if Henrik Lundqvist suffers an injury.
Rick Nash, LW11/16/2013 5:16:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (concussion) is aiming to return to the lineup Tuesday or Thursday, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Nash will miss his 16th straight game Saturday after suffering a concussion on Oct. 8. He's been on the ice for eight straight days and practiced with contact the last two.
Mats Zuccarello, LWHot11/13/2013 9:53:00 AM
Description: Rangers left winger Mats Zuccarello has one goal and nine points over his last eight games.
Insight: The line of Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan and Zuccarello has been highly successful as of late, and Zuccarello also has been playing with the top power-play unit.
Chris Kreider, LW11/12/2013 9:54:00 PM
Description: New York left wing Chris Kreider contributed two assists Tuesday in a loss to New Jersey.
Insight: That gives him seven assists in his last six contests. Kreider is averaging roughly a point per game this season (10 points in 11 appearances).
Rick Nash, LW11/12/2013 5:47:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (concussion) will return to practice Wednesday.
Insight: Nash resumed skating four days ago and should be nearing a return to the lineup after missing the past six weeks.
Rick Nash, LW11/9/2013 2:50:00 PM
Description: The Rangers tweeted that Rick Nash skated with the goalies Saturday morning but did not participate in regular practice.
Insight: Nash has played since Oct. 8 due to a concussion and is still without a timetable for his return.
Ryan Callahan, RWHot11/7/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Ryan Callahan scored a goal for the second straight game and the third time in the last four games Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: The Rangers captain also had one assist, giving him four points in three games since returning from a broken thumb.
Ryan McDonagh, D11/7/2013 9:44:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh's empty-net goal Thursday gave him four on the season, tying his total from all of last year.
Insight: McDonagh has scored a goal in two straight games and has nine points in 16 games after tallying two points Thursday. McDonagh is playing frequently on the top power-play unit for the first time in his career and already has three power-play points after entering the season with three total PPP in his first three seasons.
Carl Hagelin, LWHot11/7/2013 9:40:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Carl Hagelin has four goals and seven points in six games since making his season debut.
Insight: Hagelin scored two goals Thursday for the second time in his last four games. He had 24 goals and 62 points in 112 games his first two seasons in the NHL, but he's worth adding while he's this hot.
Cam Talbot, G11/7/2013 5:59:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot will start Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: Talbot is 2-1-0 with a 1.96 GAA and a .929 SV% since making his NHL debut on Oct. 29. He doesn't get enough starts to be a fantasy factor.
Dominic Moore, C11/7/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Dominic Moore was skating on Wednesday, but is still expected to be sidelined for another week.
Insight: Centers with one point in 11 games aren't in demand by fantasy owners. He career best is a 13-goal, 32-assist season in 2008 with Buffalo.
Ryan McDonagh, D11/6/2013 10:24:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh has two goals and five points over his last seven games.
Insight: He scored one of New York's five goals in a win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday. The 24-year-old's career high in points is 32 in 2011-12, but he could exceed that this season because he's getting more power-play time. In the past, he would be the third blueliner used on the power play after Michael Del Zotto and Dan Girardi, but he has skated with the top power-play unit this season.
Ryan Callahan, RW11/6/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Ryan Callahan has two points in two games since returning from a broken thumb.
Insight: Callahan has played just seven games this season but has four goals and five points.
Derek Stepan, C11/6/2013 10:19:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan had one of New York's five goals Wednesday against the Penguins.
Insight: Stepan scored his first three goals of the season Saturday against Carolina and now has 11 points in 15 games.
Rick Nash, LW11/5/2013 10:02:00 PM
Description: Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports that Rick Nash's lingering concussion issues are causing "growing concern" around the NHL.
Insight: However, Daren Millard, also of Sportsnet, hears "good things" regarding Nash, who skated Tuesday and is week-to-week.
Derek Stepan, C11/2/2013 10:07:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Derek Stepan notched his second-career hat trick Saturday in a win over the Hurricanes.
Insight: He hadn't scored all season before tonight. All three of his goals were assisted by Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello.
Carl Hagelin, LW11/2/2013 9:57:00 PM
Description: New York left wing Carl Hagelin netted a pair of goals Saturday in a win over Carolina.
Insight: Saturday was only Hagelin's third game of the season. Hagelin's last two-goal game before tonight was February 10th against the Lightning.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/31/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 29 shots Thursday for his second shutout of the season.
Insight: Lundqvist had lost in each of his previous two outings. He'll be between the pipes again Saturday against Carolina.
Dominic Moore, C10/31/2013 11:44:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Dominic Moore is doubtful for Thursday's game against Buffalo with an upper body injury.
Insight: Moore suffered the injury Tuesday. Centers with one point in 11 games aren't in demand by fantasy owners.
Michael Del Zotto, D10/29/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto logged his first point of the season Tuesday against the Islanders.
Insight: He assisted a Benoit Pouliot goal in the third period. Del Zotto had 37 points in 2009-10, 41 points in 2011-12 and 21 points in 46 games last season, but he went the first eight games without a point this season.
Chris Kreider, LW10/29/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Chris Kreider notched his first goal of the season Tuesday against the Islanders. It came on the power play and was assisted by Brad Richards and Derek Stepan.
Insight: The 22-year-old former first-round pick has two points in four games since being recalled. He's currently skating with the top power-play unit, which gives him fantasy value in most leagues.
Cam Talbot, G10/29/2013 6:06:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Cam Talbot will make the start in net Tuesday against the Islanders.
Insight: Henrik Lundqvist returned to the ice from his undisclosed injury Monday but the team isn't ready to let him play a back-to-back yet. The 26-year-old Talbot has gone 1-1-0 with a 1.94 GAA and a .934 SV% in his first two NHL starts.
Rick Nash, LW10/29/2013 12:04:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (concussion) has apparently not improved as there is still no timetable for his return. He last played on Oct. 8.
Insight: As it is Nash's second concussion in two seasons the situation isn't going to turn around quickly. Although the Rangers badly need offense, they aren't going to get it from Nash.
Carl Hagelin, LW10/29/2013 12:01:00 PM
Description: Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin (shoulder) will play Tuesday when he'll be eligible after sitting out 10 games on long-term injured list, according to a Bergen Record report.
Insight: The team has already sent winger Jesper Fast to Hartford. Hagelin had 10 goals and 24 points in 48 games last season and the team with an NHL-low 15 goals through 10 games needs all the offense it can muster.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/28/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (undisclosed) returned to action Monday against the Canadiens and allowed two goals on 27 shots.
Insight: The Rangers were shut out by Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj, dropping Lundqvist to 2-5-0 and New York to 3-7-0. The Rangers have scored just 1.5 goals per game this season and been shut out three times, so be sure to start your goalies against them. They play at the Islanders Tuesday, versus Buffalo Thursday and versus Carolina Saturday.
Carl Hagelin, LW10/28/2013 1:57:00 PM
Description: Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin (shoulder) should be ready to play Tuesday when he'll be eligible after sitting out 10 games on long-term injured list.
Insight: The winger had 10 goals and 24 points in 48 games last season.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/28/2013 1:55:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is probable for Monday's game against Montreal.
Insight: Lundqvist's undisclosed injury isn't believed to be serious, but Saturday was his second straight absence. He hasn't played well this season (2-4-0, 3.45 GAA, .890 SV%), but he's too good to continue playing at this level.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/26/2013 4:18:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is targeting Monday for his return from an undisclosed injury, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Lundqvist's undisclosed injury isn't believed to be serious, but Saturday will be his second straight absence.
Cam Talbot, G10/26/2013 12:21:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Cam Talbot will start Saturday at Detroit.
Insight: Henrik Lundqvist is still sidelined by an undisclosed injury. The 26-year-old Talbot allowed two goals on 27 shots in his NHL debut Thursday against the Flyers, but the Red Wings present a tougher matchup.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/25/2013 4:50:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Red Wings, according to Steve Zipay of Newsday.
Insight: Lundqvist's undisclosed injury isn't believed to be serious, but Saturday will be his second straight absence.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/23/2013 1:33:00 PM
Description: New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist won't play Thursday at Philadelphia. SOURCE: Andrew Gross, The Bergen Record
Insight: It's unclear what Lundqvist's exact injury is but it seems to be of the minor variety. Backup Cam Talbot will start, with Jason Missiaen backing him up.
Chris Kreider, LW10/22/2013 5:24:00 PM
Description: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault confirmed that Chris Kreider will get every opportunity to work on the top line with Brad Richards and Derek Stepan, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Kreider will also skate with the top power-play unit. The 22-year-old is worth monitoring.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/22/2013 2:58:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist missed a second straight practice and is questionable for Thursday's game.
Insight: Lundqvist has struggled to open the season going 2-4-0 with a 3.45 GAA and an .890 SV%. He'll have to turn it around soon or risk being a fantasy bust this season as he's always near the top of any goaltender list.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/19/2013 10:10:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist had an ugly night Saturday at New Jersey, allowing four goals on just 19 shots.
Insight: Lundqvist was coming off a 22-save shutout of the Capitals, but he's now 2-4-0 with a 3.45 GAA and an .880 SV%.
Michael Del Zotto, D10/19/2013 3:45:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is out for Saturday's game against New Jersey. SOURCE: The Bergen Record
Insight: It looks like he'll be a healthy scratch. Head coach Alain Vigneault liked the defensive pairings New York used Wednesday in Del Zotto's absence and he's going to stick with them for at least one more game. Del Zotto hasn't posted a point yet in five games this season.
Ryan Callahan, RW10/17/2013 8:10:00 PM
Description: New York right wing Ryan Callahan broke this thumb in Wednesday's win against the Capitals. SOURCE: Katie Strang, ESPN
Insight: He could be on the shelf for up to four weeks. Callahan had scored three goals in a two-game span before the injury.
Rick Nash, LW10/17/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (concussion), who was placed on the injured reserve list Tuesday, still doesn't have a timetable for return.
Insight: A hit to the head from Brad Stuart Tuesday night ended with Nash suffering a concussion. Ryan Callahan is expected to play on New York's top line with Derick Brassard and Brad Richards.
Ryan Callahan, RW10/16/2013 11:04:00 PM
Description: Rangers right winger Ryan Callahan scored another goal Wednesday at Washington.
Insight: Callahan had a pair of goals Saturday at St. Louis for his first points of the season. He took six SOG Wednesday, giving him 14 in his first five games.
Henrik Lundqvist, G10/16/2013 10:58:00 PM
Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist returned to form with a 22-save shutout of the high-powered Capitals Wednesday night.
Insight: Lundqvist entered play 1-3-0 with a 4.21 GAA and an .887 SV% in his first five games, but Wednesday's start should encourage fantasy owners. The star netminder started off 3-4 with a 2.79 GAA and a .904 SV% in the first month last season but ended up 24-16-3 with a 2.05 GAA and a .926 SV% on the year.
Carl Hagelin, LW10/16/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin (shoulder) has been cleared for contact beginning with Friday's practice, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.
Insight: Hagelin is on target for a return on Oct. 29 against the Islanders. The winger had 10 goals and 24 points in 48 games last season.
Michael Del Zotto, D10/16/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto (flu) will miss Wednesday's game.
Insight: He didn't make the trip to Washington with the team. John Moore will take Del Zotto's place on the Rangers' top power-play line, reports the Bergen Record.
Michael Del Zotto, D10/15/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto didn't travel with the team to Washington due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: He could still make it, but given his slow start (zero points, -6 rating), fantasy owners should probably sit him out for a while.
Ryan Callahan, RW10/13/2013 10:31:00 AM
Description: Ryan Callahan gave the Rangers a lift with two goals Saturday against St. Louis.
Insight: Despite the two goals, Callahan still finished the night with a negative plus/minus rating. Over his last three games, all Rangers losses, the star wing has compiled a -6 rating while averaging a little over 18 minutes of ice time per game.
Martin Biron, G10/12/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup goaltender Martin Biron will start Saturday at St. Louis.
Insight: Starter Henrik Lundqvist has allowed 10 goals in 89 minutes his last two starts and is 1-3-0 with a 4.30 GAA and an .879 SV% this season. He's obviously in no danger of losing his job, but he'll get a night off Saturday to clear his head.
Henrik Lundqvist, GCold10/11/2013 11:04:00 AM
Description: One of the league's premier goaltenders, Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist is off to a slow start (1-3, 4.31 GAA, .879 SV%).
Insight: No need to panic after just four contests, Lundqvist has won at least 35 games in each of his last six full seasons (he won 24 in 43 games last year).
Rick Nash, LW10/10/2013 4:48:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash (head) won't play Thursday or Saturday, according to John Giannone of MSG Network.
Insight: A hit to the head from Brad Stuart Tuesday night likely gave Nash a concussion. He's back in New York, presumably for testing. Ryan Callahan is expected to play on New York's top line with Benoit Pouliot and Brad Richards Thursday night.
Rick Nash, LW10/9/2013 12:25:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Rick Nash took a hit from Brad Stuart in Tuesday's game and may have suffered a concussion.
Insight: He missed time last season with concussion problems, so his headache won't be taken lightly.
Ryan Callahan, RW10/7/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Rangers winger Ryan Callahan (shoulder) is expected to be activated from injured reserve for Monday's game against Los Angeles.
Insight: Callahan had shoulder surgery this offseason but he's ready to return after missing the season opener. He'll likely play on a line with Brian Boyle and Taylor Pyatt.
Ryan Callahan, RW10/4/2013 9:10:00 PM
Description: Rangers winger Ryan Callahan (shoulder) will play Monday barring any setbacks, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Callahan had shoulder surgery this offseason but he's ready to return after missing the season opener. We project the 28-year-old to have 25 goals, 23 assists and 253 SOG this season.
Derek Stepan, C9/26/2013 1:31:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have agreed to a two-year deal worth roughly $3 million per season with center Derek Stepan, according to tsn.ca.

Carl Hagelin, LW9/13/2013 2:21:00 PM
Description: Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin recently had surgery to repair a torn labrum and out for 1-2 months.
Insight: Hagelin netted 10 goals and posted 14 assists in 48 games in 2013, but the two-way player has posted excellent plus-minus numbers each year to boost his fantasy value.
Ryan Callahan, RW9/13/2013 2:17:00 PM
Description: New York right wing Ryan Callahan had surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to miss 1-2 months.
Insight: Callahan is a solid fantasy contributor when on the ice. In 2012-13 he posted 31 points (16G, 15A) in 45 games and the previous season he totaled 54 points.
Johan Hedberg, G9/13/2013 11:48:00 AM
Description: Former Devils backup goaltender Johan Hedberg has been brought in by the New York Rangers and will be given a chance to unseat Marty Biron for the backup role to Henrik Lundqvist.
Insight: After a solid 2011-12 (17-7, 2.23 GAA, .918 SV%), Hedberg's production dropped significantly last season and his contract was bought out. He's a long shot to take Biron spot on the roster.
Marc Staal, D9/13/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Rangers defenseman Mark Staal says his vision is much improved as the teams heads to camp, according to a New York Post report.
Insight: He scored two goals and 11 points in 21 regular season games after getting hurt on March 5, but is capable of much more if healthy.
Henrik Lundqvist, G9/6/2013 8:21:00 PM
Description: The Rangers are working on a contract extension with Henrik Lundqvist. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: If the deal doesn't get done, Lundqvist will become a free agent after the 2013-14 season. The All-Star goaltender won the Vezina Trophy in 2012 and was a finalist for the award last season.
Ryan McDonagh, D7/8/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Katie Strang reports that Ryan McDonagh has signed a six-year, $28.2 million deal to stay with the Rangers.

Ryan McDonagh, D7/6/2013 9:02:00 PM
Description: The Bergen Record reports that the Rangers are close to re-signing defenseman Ryan McDonagh.
Insight: McDonagh led all New York defensemen in plus/minus last season (+13 in 47 games). The 24-year-old has accumulated 60 points (12 goals, 48 assists) in 169 career games, all with the Rangers.
Michael Del Zotto, D6/13/2013 10:06:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto underwent hernia surgery on Thursday. SOURCE: The Bergen Record

Ryan Callahan, RW6/2/2013 9:52:00 PM
Description: New York right wing Ryan Callahan had surgery on his left shoulder this past Friday. SOURCE: Rangers on Twitter
Insight: His teammate Carl Hagelin needed the same surgery. Both are questionable for the start of next season.
Carl Hagelin, LW6/2/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin recently had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. SOURCE: Rangers on Twitter
Insight: Hagelin could be sidelined for the start of next season. He netted 10 goals in 48 games in 2013.
Ryane Clowe, RW5/27/2013 8:16:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Katie Strang, Ryane Clowe is hoping to re-sign with the Rangers this offseason.
Insight: Clowe missed New York's final seven games with what is believed to be a concussion. The Blue Shirts acquired Clowe from San Jose at this year's trade deadline.
Brad Richards, C5/27/2013 8:12:00 PM
Description: Brad Richards acknowledged that the Rangers could buy him out over the summer. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: The New York center called his 2013 season "a mess." Richards posted nice stats during the regular season (11 goals, 23 assists, +8) but John Tortorella demoted him to the fourth line during the playoffs. He didn't play at all in the last two games of the Boston series. Maybe a change of scenery will help Richards turn things around.
Marc Staal, D5/25/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: Rangers defenseman Mark Staal is questionable for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Saturday against the Bruins with blurred vision.
Insight: His vision has been improving, but it's still unlikely that he gets on the ice for Saturday's game. He scored two goals and 11 points in 21 regular season games, but hasn't seen the ice since Game 1 of the series with Washington.
Ryane Clowe, RW5/25/2013 9:55:00 AM
Description: New York right wing Ryane Clowe is doubtful for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals Saturday against the Boston Bruins with a concussion.
Insight: During the regular season he posted 19 points in 40 games and added 93 penalty minutes. He hasn't played since Game 2 of the previous series with Washington.
Brad Richards, CCold5/23/2013 12:58:00 PM
Description: New York center Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's Game 4 against Boston. SOURCE: New York Times
Insight: Richards has seen his role diminshed this postseason and now it looks like he doesn't even have a role. This is pretty puzzling, especially considering how well Richards performed during the regular season (11 goals, 23 assists, +8).
Henrik Lundqvist, G5/20/2013 10:27:00 PM
Description: Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist acknowledged that he's been dealing with a shoulder injury but says that he has it "under control." SOURCE: The Bergen Record
Insight: Lundqvist was dominant versus the Capitals in round one but so far he's struggled against the Bruins (eight goals allowed in two games). He'll look to turn things around Tuesday in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden. Lundqvist is undefeated at home this postseason (3-0).
Henrik Lundqvist, G5/19/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals Sunday in a Game 2 loss to Boston.
Insight: That's the most goals Lundqvist (27 saves) has given up in a game since March of 2011. We're guessing he'll be much better Tuesday in Game 3.
Rick Nash, LW5/19/2013 7:13:00 PM
Description: After being shut out in his first eight games of the playoffs, Rangers left wing Rick Nash finally scored Sunday against Boston.
Insight: The goal was Nash's first since April 27th against New Jersey. He led the team with four shots on goal in just over 22 minutes of ice time.
Henrik Lundqvist, GHot5/13/2013 10:45:00 PM
Description: Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist blanked the Capitals for the second game in a row Monday night in Game 7.
Insight: The reigning Vezina Trophy winner was spectacular in round one (.947 save percentage). He'll face the Bruins in the Eastern Conference semis.
