Found February 02, 2012 on Ranger Nation:
On back-to-back nights I have watched my New York Rangers take part in the worst thing to happen to the NHL overtime format in the history of the league. I’m talking of course about the shootout.

Getting Shots On Net On The Powerplay

Addressing The Real Needs

It never seems to fail; that the moment either the New York Rangers lose a game or somebody's name makes it to the rumor mill that Ranger fans start screaming for a move to be made.
