Although no New York-area teams made it to the Stanley Cup Final this year, the Empire State will still have a large impact on hockey's grandest stage. Twelve players from the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues have connections with the New York metro area in some way, so local fans still have plenty of reasons to tune in.

Boston Bruins

The Bruins have one of the largest collections of American-born hockey players of any team in the NHL. Not surprisingly, several of them have called New York home for at least part of their careers.

On Paul Carey, Vigneault said on 12/28, "Paul came in and you could tell right away, good skater and that speed enabled him to get in on the forecheck, he was good in his puck battles one on one. He got an opportunity to play and in that opportunity he has found a way to contribute. He's gotta continue, depending on the game he is getting pretty good minutes and we need him just like we need the rest of our crew to find ways to contribute, whether that be on the score sheet, blocking shots, on the forecheck, getting pucks out. Paul is no different and getting a good and more consistent opportunity than he probably has had on other teams and we need him to step up."

12/26 | Paul Carey made the Rangers out of training camp after Jeff Gorton said that Carey played well in the last week of training camp.

Gorton said that Carey is a versatile player that can play all forward positions and kill penalties while Alain Vigneault said that there were a few players in the mix but that "Paul was just a little bit better."

12/20/17 | 11:21AM: Alain Vigneault spoke of Carey following the game last night and said, ""early on he didn't get a chance to play much but I would say that in the last little while he has been called upon and played well, he has played some good minutes, dependable at both ends and he has been able to find ways to contribute on the scoresheet which is a real positive thing." (MSG)

12/19/17 | 9:57PM: Paul Carey was on MSG following the Rangers win over the Ducks and said: 

  • "it's nice to be rewarded. Our line is playing really well and working hard and it's nice to see pucks go in."
  • On playing with Desharnais, "Davey is a great player, sees the ice really well. He makes everyone around him a better player. He wins draws and you just gotta keep your puck on the ice when you are playing with him."
  • On the mentality of the 4th line, "we know our role and are supposed to bring energy, keep pucks out, eat up some tougher minutes but that doesn't change the fact that we all want to score and want to make plays."
  • On his goals, "I did make eye contact with Davey, he had his head up the whole time. When I came into the zone I saw him and he was able to get that sauce over and I put it in the back of the net."
  • On the second goal, "I think it might have been Staal center driving there, it opened up the late guy and I just tried to get it off as quick as I could."
  • On getting that much space, "it's nice, hard to find that much time and space but when you do get that it's an opportunity to take advantage of it."

On Tuesday, Larry Brooks of the NY Post tweeted that Paul Carey shouldn't be overlooked in regards to gaining a roster spot with the Rangers.

Brooks said that Carey has been "engaged, skates well" and been "very impressive."

Prior to last night's game, Alain Vigneault was asked about Carey and said that he was someone who had caught his eye.
