2011 Compuware NHL Premiere

Tortorella pushing Rangers on the bubble

Tuesday, 09.27.2011 / 2:31 PM / 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PRAGUE -- John Tortorella's booming voice echoed from the ice through the stands at Tesla Arena. He yelled with purpose.

Tortorella first barked at rookie defenseman Dylan McIlrath for not being crisp enough with his passes during a 2-on-0 drill. Roughly 60 seconds later, he stopped practice so he could scold his entire club. He emphatically told the players they better start concentrating and focusing on everything they're doing, because the real stuff is coming soon and they're not good enough to coast once the regular season begins.

Before letting the players head to the showers, Tortorella gave one more impassioned speech about the need to be better, and about how being a good team stuck in seventh, eighth or ninth place in the Eastern Conference all season is not nearly good enough.

Lundqvist nervous, excited to play in home country

Tuesday, 09.27.2011 / 12:25 PM / 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Staff Writer

There's no place like home.

During the regular season, Henrik Lundqvist calls Madison Square Garden his home, but on Sept. 30, "King Henrik" will return to his actual homeland in Sweden, where he'll be greeted with an ovation similar , if not louder, than the one he receives from the Garden denizens.

From playing against his former team Frolunda HC -- which includes Henrik's identical twin brother Joel and several of his close friends -- to playing in front of tons of family and friends, it will certainly be an emotional experience for Lundqvist.

"(There will be) a lot of family and friends going to the game," Lundqvist told NHL.com. "I'm going to be a little nervous, but it's also going be pretty emotional I think. A lot of good years back in Gothenburg, a lot of great memories. It will be a very special night for me. I look forward to it a lot."

Rangers embrace daunting season-opening trip

Monday, 09.26.2011 / 5:30 PM / 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The challenges in front of the New York Rangers are like hurdles on a track that only get higher with each one you clear.
 
And the finish line is nowhere in sight.
 
First, the Rangers have this two-week European excursion, which is taking them to five cities in four countries to play a total of six games. When they return home, the Rangers get a week in New York and one game on Long Island before they get back on the plane and head west for a four-game road trip to Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
 
They won't play a home game until the Toronto Maple Leafs come to the partially renovated Madison Square Garden on Oct. 27.
