The 2011–12 New York Rangers season was the National Hockey League franchise's 85th season of play and their 86th season overall.[1] The Rangers finished the regular season in first place in the Eastern Conference, winning the Atlantic Division title, the franchise's seventh division title, and their first since the 1993–94 championship season. In the playoffs, the Rangers reached the Conference Finals for the first time since 1997, losing to the New Jersey Devils in six games.

Off-seasonEdit

On April 11, 2011, it was announced that the Rangers will open the 2011–12 NHL season in Stockholm, Sweden, on October 7, 2011, against the Los Angeles Kings, and on October 8 against the Anaheim Ducks as part of the 2011 NHL Premiere.[2]

On May 13, Rangers forward Derek Boogaard was found dead in his apartment. Boogaard had played in 22 games for the Rangers during the 2010–11 season after signing a four-year deal with the Rangers in the previous off-season.[3]

On June 29, Rangers captain Chris Drury's contract was bought out.[4][5]

On July 2, free agent Brad Richards signed a nine-year contract worth almost $60 million with the Rangers. Richards had been considered to be the top free agent of 2011.[6][7]

On August 4, Sean Avery was arrested at his home in Hollywood Hills for battery on a police officer after pushing an officer that was trying to break up a party at Avery's home.[8]

On September 12, the Rangers announced that Ryan Callahan would be the 26th captain in New York Rangers history.[9] Brad Richards and Marc Staal were named as alternate captains.

On September 26, the NHL officially announced that the Rangers would face the Philadelphia Flyers on January 2, 2012, in the 2012 NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies.[10] As part of the Winter Classic festivities, the Rangers were featured in HBO's 24/7 series.[11] The throwback jerseys the Rangers wore for the Winter Classic were unveiled at an event on November 28.[12]

Regular seasonEdit

On December 10, the Rangers won their 2,500th game in franchise history at the Buffalo Sabres, 4–1.[13]

On December 17, in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes in Phoenix, Brad Richards scored the game-winning goal with 0.01 left in the third period to win the game for the Rangers 3–2 at the last possible moment in regulation.

On January 2, 2012, the Rangers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3–2 in the 2012 NHL Winter Classic, moving into first place overall in the NHL for the first time at this point in the season since the 1995–96 season.[14]

On January 6, thanks to the Rangers 1st place standing in the Eastern Conference, head coach John Tortorella was named as one of the coaches for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.[15]

The Rangers set an NHL record by not allowing more than 4 goals in regulation in a game through the first 69 games of the season. The Rangers, with back-up goaltender Martin Biron playing, lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 15 by a score of 5–2 to break the streak.[16]

From March 11 to March 23, the Rangers had a seven-game homestand (playing every other day during that span), tying a franchise record for most consecutive games played at MSG.[17] The other time this occurred was between December 10 and December 23 of the 2001–02 season.[18]

The Rangers became the first Eastern Conference team to clinch a playoff spot with a 4–2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on March 20.[19]

With a victory on March 24 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Rangers reached the 100 point plateau for the seventh time in franchise history, and the first time since the 2005–06 season.[20]

On March 28, Henrik Lundqvist notched his 250th career win as the Broadway Blueshirts netminder, thus becoming the 45th goalie in NHL history to reach this plateau, in a 4–2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets at the MTS Centre.[21]

With a 5–3 win at the Philadelphia Flyers on April 3, the Rangers clinched the Atlantic Division title and first place in the Eastern Conference with their 51st win in their 80th game of the season. The Rangers had been in first place in the Conference since December 30, 2011.[22] It was the first of either kind for the Rangers since winning the 1994 Stanley Cup.

PostseasonEdit

On May 2, 2012, Marian Gaborik scored 14:41 into the third overtime of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals to defeat the Washington Capitals 2–1 at the Verizon Center. This was longest playoff game for the Rangers since April 29, 1971, when Pete Stemkowski scored in the third overtime for a 3–2 win in Game 6 of the 1971 Semifinals over the Chicago Blackhawks at Madison Square Garden.[23] Later in the series with Washington, on May 7, 2012, Brad Richards tied Game 5 with 7.6 seconds to go, the latest the Rangers have ever tied a playoff game. Marc Staal then scored to win the game at 1:35 of overtime.[24]
