There are still details to be finalized regarding the NHL's return to finish the 2019-20 season amid the coronavirus pandemic, but the format has been agreed upon. And it includes the Rangers.

If the NHL hammers everything out, the Rangers will return to the ice against the Carolina Hurricanes in a best-of-five opening round playoff series with a chance to advance from the round of 24 to the round of 16 -- where the top four seeds in each conference will be waiting.

Under the plan, the Rangers would be the No. 11 seed and the Hurricanes would be the No. 6 seed.

The Rangers franchise-record nine game road winning streak came to an end on Friday night in Philadelphia, as New York fell to the Flyers 5-2.

Not only did the Rangers come away with no points to help their playoff chase, but they also lost Chris Kreider to a fractured foot in the first quarter.

The loss of Kreider, whom the team held on to at the trade deadline and signed to a seven-year extension, seemed to impact the team, as Philadelphia scored five straight goals after trailing 1-0 in the game's first few minutes.

Rangers left wing Chris Kreider suffered a fractured foot in the first period of Friday night's game against the Philadelphia Flyers and will not return, the team announced.

Kreider had just signed a seven-year deal worth $6.5 million per year on Monday, Feb. 24.

Trade rumors had been going on with Kreider for weeks, as the Rangers and his team couldn't find an agreement on an extension. Before he and the Rangers agreed to a deal, teams like the Bruins, Blues, Golden Knights, and Avalanche were among the reported eight teams interested in acquiring him.

Chris Kreider is staying in New York.

Ahead of the NHL trade deadline on Monday, Rangers team president John Davidson announced a seven-year extension has been reached between both sides. According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the deal is worth $6.5 million per year. 

Trade rumors have been swirling around Kreider for weeks now, as the Rangers and his team couldn't find an agreement on an extension with the 28-year-old set to be a free agent after the season.

After a report Friday afternoon said that the Rangers made Chris Kreider their "priority" to extend ahead of Monday's 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline, they are now "likely" trading the 28-year-old left wing.

In what has been an eventful month between the Rangers and Kreider throughout the past few weeks leading up to the deadline, the two sides appear primed for a split.

The Rangers and Kreider's representatives were unable to agree on a contract extension as of Sunday evening, making the two sides head for a split, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported.

The Rangers have made it their "priority" to sign Chris Kreider to an extension rather than trade him, according to a Friday afternoon report from Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

They have work to do before Monday's 3 p.m. deadline -- Brooks notes that the two sides still have to "bridge the gap" -- but the Blueshirts appear to have a clear preference in mind.

Kreider, 28, is set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The left wing has spent his entire career with the Rangers after he became the 2009 NHL Entry Draft's No. 19 overall pick in the first round.

Only a few days remain before the 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline passes this coming Monday, and the Rangers' mindset regarding their current roster is a little foggy. In recent seasons, players like Mats Zuccarello and Kevin Hayes were moved, but the same can't be said now for New York.

One player in particular that has garnered tons of trade interest is Chris Kreider. The 28-year-old is a free agent after this season, and TSN's Pierre LeBrun has reported that eight teams had Kreider on their trade list. But, unlike the players mentioned before, the Rangers are open to contract extension talks with the veteran winger. 

And, according to The Athletic's Rick Carpiniello, the team is still discussing a new contract with Kreider's agent, Matt Keator. To what extent those talks have gone is still unknown.

Much of the talk about the Rangers as the team heads towards the NHL trade deadline has been about the team looking to trade away one of their goaltenders.

But the team did just the opposite on Wednesday night, acquiring goaltender J-F Berube from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for future considerations.

The Rangers currently have Igor Shesterkin, Henrik Lundqvist, and Alexandar Georgiev on the roster, meaning the move to acquire Berube is likely more just about organizational depth at the position.

Berube, 28, did not appear with the Flyers this season, spending all of his time in the minors. Overall, he's played just 34 NHL games over three seasons with the Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks, posting a 3.39 GAA and a .898 save percentage.

As the NHL trade deadline approaches, the Rangers have a number of questions to answer.

On of those questions revolves around their goalie situation, which has become overcrowded with Alexandar Georgiev, Henrik Lundqvist, and Igor Shesterkin all as viable options. 

Will the Rangers make a move with one of their goalies?

With the NHL trade deadline just over two weeks away and Chris Kreider's future in question, the Rangers are expected to open contract negotiations with Kreider's representatives within the next few days, reports Pierre LeBrun of TSN.

While LeBrun believes it's going to be "difficult" for the Rangers and Kreider to come to terms, New York GM Jeff Gorton will make the effort.

Kreider, who is in the final year of a four-year deal worth just over $18 million and is set to hit unrestricted free agency on July 1, will almost certainly be dealt by the Rangers before the deadline if an extension can't be reached.

As the NHL trade deadline on Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. looms, questions continue to surface regarding what the Rangers plan to do with left wing Chris Kreider.

After missing Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars at Madison Square Garden with an upper-body injury that he suffered during Saturday's 1-0 road win over the Red Wings, Kreider is close to a return, Rangers head coach David Quinn said. But other teams are calling.

With Kreider set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, eight teams are interested in the eighth-year pro, The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun reported Monday. In fact, those eight teams, according to LeBrun, have Kreider at the top of their wish list as they contact the Rangers.

After Artemi Panarin was scratched from Tuesday night's 4-2 loss to the Islanders due to an upper-body injury, he'll now miss this weekend's All-Star Game in St. Louis as well.

Panarin will be replaced by Rangers teammate Chris Kreider, who will represent the Blueshirts among the NHL's best.

Panarin has missed two Rangers' practices recently with what's being described as an upper-body injury.

Playing without superstar Artemi Panarin in the lineup, the Rangers fell to the Islanders 4-2 on Tuesday night at Madison Garden.

Panarin has missed two Rangers' practices recently with what's being described as an upper-body injury, and he was announced as a scratch shortly before Tuesday's game.

Playing in his first season with the Blueshirts, Panarin ranks fifth in the NHL with 68 points, including 26 goals.

With the loss, the Rangers will take a 23-21-4 record into the All-Star break, while the Islanders finish the first half with a record of 29-15-5.

Tony DeAngelo recorded a hat trick, Igor Shesterkin made 46 saves, and the Rangers doubled up the Devils 6-3 at the Garden on Thursday night.

The first period saw five goals scored, with Artemi Panarin, who has been nothing short of fantastic in his first season with the Rangers, scoring his 24th goal of the season to get the action started. DeAngelo and Chris Kreider then lit the lamp to put the Rangers up 3-1, but Blake Coleman scored for the Devils with under two minutes to play in the period to bring New Jersey back within a goal at 3-2.

Coleman scored again in the second, his 15th goal of the season, to tie the game at 3-3, when DeAngelo took over. The 24-year-old recorded his 10th and 11th goals of the year in the second period, giving him a hat trick and giving the Rangers a two-goal lead.

As the Rangers welcomed the Colorado Avalanche to the Garden on Tuesday, Igor Shesterkin made his first career NHL start between the pipes for the home team. 

Despite facing an early 2-0 deficit, the Rangers fought back to come away with a 5-3 win.

Less than five minutes into the game, the Avs struck first, after a shot from the point was deflected past Shesterkin by JT Compher, as Colorado scored on their very first shot on goal of the game.

Artemi Panarin notched his 21st goal of the season, Mika Zibanejad scored two of his own, and the Rangers held on to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 at the Garden on Friday night. 

Lucas Wallmark got the Hurricanes on board first with his seventh goal of the season, but the Rangers answered back, as Zibanejad scored his first of the game to even things up at 1-1 after the first period. 

The second period belonged to the Rangers, as the Blueshirts scored the first three goals of the middle 20 minutes. After Chris Kreider gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead just 87 seconds into the period, Panarin lit the lamp for the 21st time this season, marking his eighth goal in his last nine games. Zibanejad then made it 4-1 with his 14th goal of the season and second of the game, giving him 12 points in his last seven games.

Adam Fox will always remember his first NHL goal.

With the Rangers leading the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1 with under three minutes to play in Tuesday night's game, the Rangers found them self in an odd-man rush.

After Lighting goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped the initial shot from Chris Krieder, he allowed a long rebound out into the slot, where Fox wristed in his first NHL goal to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead.

No New York Ranger has more goals over the past three seasons than Chris Kreider's 72. However, that doesn't mean that the Rangers' longest-tenured forward is safe heading into what would be his eighth season as a Blueshirt. 

Given the Rangers' salary cap troubles, it's been speculated that the team may have to part with an expensive piece like Kreider to make room for young talent. The team only has slightly more than $1 million in cap space, and still must re-sign forward Brandon Lemieux and defenseman Tony DeAngelo, who are restricted free agents. Kreider, a free agent in one year, carries a $4.625 million cap hit.

From a financial perspective, it makes sense to trade Kreider. However, members of the Rangers' front office reiterated on Thursday that as of now, the expectation is that Kreider will remain a member of the Rangers for the 2019-20 season.

The New York Rangers enter the NHL offseason in one of the best positions: They have money to spend, and are a prime free agent destination.

Some of the game's biggest names, like Erik Karlsson and Artemi Panarin, have already been linked to the Rangers before free agency begins on July 1. The team also scored a major victory in the draft lottery and will get to select a franchise player with the second overall pick.

While the Rangers are expected to be finalists for either Panarin or Karlsson this summer, that doesn't mean they should be done shopping. They have many prospects gunning for spots, but it is a little bit of proven veteran goal scoring that has a way of coming up clutch in the Stanley Cup playoffs-just look at Justin Williams and Patrick Maroon in this year's postseason.

Glen Sather was already a Hall of Famer before he arrived in New York as a 56-year-old on June 1, 2000, building and coaching the Oilers dynasty of the 1980s to four Stanley Cups and adding one more solely as an executive in 1989-90, two years after ownership forced the trade of Wayne Gretzky to Los Angeles.

The cigar-chomping Sather is an iconic figure in NHL history, an undisputed giant of the game. His Rangers legacy is complicated.

For there is an unmistakable void in Sather's 19-year run with the Blueshirts, the first 15 of which were spent as both president and general manager before he ceded the GM title to Jeff Gorton, with a 90-game stint as coach across the 2002-03 and 2003-04 seasons sprinkled in.

Though he orchestrated one of the most memorable runs in franchise history during which the Rangers went to the playoffs 11 out of 12 years, the 75-year-old will step down as president and into an advisory role, as the club announced Thursday, without a Stanley Cup.

Goals by youngsters Brendan Lemieux and Vinni Lettieri gave the Rangers a 2-0 lead late in the first period against the Penguins. However, New York managed 19 shots on goal over the next two periods after recording 16 in the first.

The Rangers (28-32-13), who are out of playoff contention, are coming off a 3-2 home loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

They have had three days to prepare for Toronto. The teams have split their first two meetings this season.

Defenseman John Gilmour and forward Vinni Lettieri were called up from Hartford of the American Hockey League for the game Tuesday. Lettieri played in his 19th game for the Rangers this season. Gilmour played in the Rangers' final 28 games last season but was playing his first NHL game this season.

It's been nearly a month-long scoring drought for Chris Kreider

But the Rangers assistant captain has a reason behind his production issues. On Monday, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported Kreider has been has been hampered by a balky hamstring since Feb. 27, when the injury occurred during the Blueshirts' game against Tampa Bay. 

"You're going to have dips in your game," Kreider told the Post. "The season is just so long. But you have to learn how to approach them, deal with them, separate the good from the bad and put everything in perspective. And you learn as you go along. I know I learned from watching and talking to Rick Nash when he went through lulls, and his message was to simplify things and get back to the basics."

New York heads to Minnesota on a three-game losing streak and has been blown out in its last two losses, getting outscored 9-2 in defeats at Vancouver and Calgary, the latter by a 5-1 margin on Friday.

The Rangers were tied 1-1 after the opening 20 minutes against the Flames but gave up two goals in 70 seconds in the second period.

"We just weren't real dialed in defensively tonight, not only the goals that they scored, but how many times did you look up and all of a sudden, there's a 1-on-3 in front of our net," New York coach David Quinn told reporters. "We cheated the game too often tonight, very loose defensively, didn't hit anybody, didn't want to get hit and we played very slow.

When the New York Islanders and New York Rangers split a pair of high-scoring games in November, it appeared both teams might stay in contention for postseason spots in the Eastern Conference.

Nearly two months later, the Islanders are ascending while the Rangers are dealing with a significant tailspin and falling way behind in the playoff race.

On Saturday afternoon, the teams will get together for the last time this season and for the last time at Brooklyn's Barclays Center when then Rangers visit the Islanders in the back end of a home-and-home set. >> Read more

NASHVILLE -- New York (15-14-7) has managed to pick up a point in seven of its last nine games. But the Rangers have just two wins to show for the stretch following a 4-3 overtime loss Thursday night in Madison Square Garden to Columbus.

Chris Kreider's goal at 12:06 of the third period gave New York a late edge, but the Blue Jackets equalized via Zach Werenski at 17:40 and then skated off 31 seconds into overtime on Pierre-Luc Dubois' 14th marker of the year.

"We can't let this get in the way of moving on and getting ready for Nashville," said first-year coach David Quinn. "There were situations where we had a chance to get the puck out and didn't do what we were supposed to. It's about learning how to win."

Three months ago almost every NHL preview did not have the Rangers and Islanders as two teams that would be fighting for the lead in the Metropolitan Division, but as we approach their first matchup Thursday night, it appears that neither team read, watched or listened those predictions -- the Isles and Rangers are tied for second place with 20 points, trailing only the Columbus Blue Jackets by two points for the division lead. 

Both teams have taken very different paths to get to this point. 

Let's start with the Islanders, who appear to have moved on from losing former captain John Tavares. The stability that Lou Lamoriello and Barry Trotz have brought to the organization cannot be quantified. While this team is not the most talented, it does not get outworked, plays a much better defensive structure and is keeping the puck out of its own net. Thomas Greiss and Robin Lehner have provided stability between the pipes and the duo of Josh Bailey and Anders Lee have proven that they are not a product of their former captain...

The Rangers came dangerously close to letting two points slip through the cracks Tuesday night, but managed to escape with a 4-3 shootout win over the Sharks. 

Chris Kreider scored two goals in the third period, each giving the Rangers the lead, but Sharks' Tomas Hertl tied the game with 1.3 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. The Rangers managed to salvage the game in the shootout, 1-0, courtesy of Kevin Shattenkirk. >> Box score

The Rangers' 'A' list has grown extra long for the 2018-19 NHL season.

The Blueshirts announced Wednesday that Chris Kreider, Jesper Fast, Mika Zibanejad, Mats Zuccarello and Marc Staal will serve as alternate captains for the upcoming campaign.

The new leadership quintet figures to be a collective substitute for the primary captain role. The Rangers' 'C' remains ownerless since last season's trade of ex-captain Ryan McDonagh to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

In 381 career regular season games, Chris Kreider has played a total of 5 minutes and 37 seconds of time on the penalty Kill.

In last Monday's preseason game against the Devils, Kreider played a total of 19:57 with 3:28 coming on the PK.

David Quinn said this past week that the Rangers are trying to figure out if Kreider can be used in shorthanded situations because with his speed, he makes a PP "uncomfortable." (NYR)

Chris Kreider, Vitali Kravtsov and Nils Lundkvist joined Bruce Beck on WNBC's Sports final on Sunday and said:

  • Nils Lundkvist on being drafted, "It feels unbelievable to be part of the Rangers. When they said my name at the draft I couldn't believe that it happened, I'm really excited to see what happens and looking forward to prospect camp and next season. I'm really glad."
  • Vitali Kravtsov on being drafted, I'm really excited to be in New York, great city, great fans, great team. This is my dream."
  • Chris Kreider on what he remembers about the draft, "It's definitely a whirlwind, a fun few weeks where you can look back on and smile. Work comes right after the draft, prospect camp this week and it's kind of trial by fire because they haven't been on the ice and have been focusing on the draft and combine and get thrown right into it. It's a fun experience and something they should try to enjoy and soak up as much as they can."
