I hate to make excuses because the Rangers didn't deserve to win last night after an atrocious start and going 0-for-7 on the power play, but the refs didn't make life easy for the Rangers.First, similar to the bogus Winter Classic closing the hand on the puck penalty, last night's call on Dan Girardi in the first period was just as egregious. At no point does he close his hand on the puck. See for yourself...
John Tortorella, who made sure everyone knew he wasn't criticizing the refs, said this about the call..."I saw the replay and I saw Danny just brush the puck away." For the Rangers thoughts and video on the refs quick whistle on Corey Corawford's skate save in second period, click the "Read More" tab below.
Next the quick whistle by the ref with the puck just sitting in plain view under Corey Crawford's skate after making a save on Marian Gaborik cancels a sure goal by Ryan Callahan in the second period...

Gross adds that Ruslan Fedotenko was working with the training staff...

During their two-week conditioning periods with Connecticut, Wolski scored three goals, including two game-winners, and had two assists for five...
When the Blackhawks put their third goal in the first four minutes past backup goalie Martin Biron last night, the chants for Henrik Lundqvist came raining down from the Garden faithful.
But Rangers coach John Tortorella stuck with Biron, even after he gave up a fourth goal 9:38 into...
Contrary to popular belief last night, the world has not ended. While losses are sometimes hard to stomach, I’d much rather have this kind of loss now than in the playoffs. Last night, the Rangers got outplayed. Plain and simple. The ‘Hawks had the Rangers number from the get go. On the power plays, it [...]
New York Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky has heard his name involved in recent trade rumors but knows there is nothing he can do leading up to Monday's trade deadline besides focus on his play.
