NHL schedule will be stuck in the matrix for foreseeable future
The Rangers have yet to play the Penguins. The Islanders have not visited the Garden. The Blueshirts and Devils have met once, on Broadway, the second week of the season. Such anomalies are a byproduct of the NHL scheduling matrix, adopted in 2013-14 for a three-year trial under an agreement between the league and the...

Devastating KO (and ensuing shrug) show hockey fights must end
The most frightening aspect about the AHL fight on Tuesday — in which San Antonio’s Daniel Maggio’s straight right to the face literally knocked out San Diego’s Brian McGrattan — is that the incident caused barely a ripple in the industry, as if this sort of thing should be accepted as a cost of doing...
Inside how Brendan Shanahan poached Lamoriello for Devils stunner
OTTAWA, Ontario — Lou Lamoriello didn’t say yes right away, but Brendan Shanahan saw hope in one word. “He did add that the idea was intriguing,” Shanahan told The Post over the phone Saturday. “And to me, that was the little sliver of an opening that I wanted to cultivate.” What Shanahan cultivated was an unprecedented...

The Devils’ reclamation is a success, and it’s only just begun
It was this past September, training camp for the Devils, and before they could even get on the ice, they were buried under predictions picking them to finish last. First-year general manager Ray Shero walked in, shoulder-to-shoulder with first-year coach John Hynes. They didn’t hide the press clippings, but put them in the face of...

Devils using disrespect card for playoff motivation
Cory Schneider and the Devils are aware that analysts didn’t think much of their chances to qualify for the postseason.

Lundqvist’s All-Star rejection sets up Ryan McDonagh bid
The surprise isn’t that Henrik Lundqvist was not selected to represent the Rangers at the All-Star extravaganza in Nashville at the end of the month — no surprise at all to the goaltender, in fact — but rather that Ryan McDonagh rather than leading scorer Mats Zuccarello received the call to report to Music City....

Lundqvist has star power, but Schneider has All-Star numbers

But it may not necessarily follow that the King will be part of the NHL’s All-Star festivities in Nashville later this month,...
