Photos of the Year

The Rangers played a total of 102 regular-season and playoff games in 2011-12, and there was a "Photo of the Game" for each one. Throughout June and for part of July, we will count down from the 102nd-best of those photos all the way to No. 1, revealing three photos per day here on There will be a countdown of the three new ones each day, followed by a ranking in order of all the photos that preceded the latest selections. Photos are ranked based on a combination of their uniqueness, overall composition, and the significance of the moment depicted. Bookmark this page and check back each afternoon for three additional photos in this gallery.
