Found November 26, 2011 on Sox and Dawgs:
By Brian Ring Springfield, MA, November 26, 2011 - The Connecticut Whale rallied from two goals down to defeat the Springfield Falcons, 3-2, at the MassMutual Center Saturday night. Andreas Thuresson had two goals, including the late game-winning score, to help make the Whale a perfect 3-0 against the Falcons this season. “It was a pretty gutty win, I think,” said Whale head coach Ken Gernander. “They’ve been doing that a lot, persevering in the third period. It’s a big win on the road for them.” Connecticut native Cam Atkinson had put the Falcons on the board first, turning in the slot and firing a wrist shot past Whale goaltender Chad Johnson (26 saves) 4:11 into the first period. Alexandre Giroux and Nick Drazenovic assisted on the goal, the only scoring of the period, during which the Falcons outshot the Whale 9-4. Springfield increased their lead to 2-0 at 9:46 of the second, as Drazenovic scored off a deflection from a Whale defender. Johnson had made several stops on in-...

Brian Boyle Needs To Be Better

Jeff Woywitka had the same amount of points as Brian Boyle prior to last night’s game. While Boyle isn’t (or at least should not be) judged purely on offensive statistics that first comment is quite a damning statement given Woywitka is a throw-in and plays minimal minutes on the bottom defensive pair. Simply put Brian Boyle, even with his goal yesterday, hasn’t been good enough...

Time To Ease the Burden

Despite the quality of opposition increasing in the coming two weeks, new signing Anton Stralman still not completely ready (despite playing in his first game the other day), and the continuing absence of Marc Staal the Rangers need to spread the ice time around a little more among the blue line. It’s absurd that two Rangers blue liners (McDonagh and Girardi) average more than...

Rangers Discover Identity in Past Two Wins

In their past two wins against the Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers, the New York Rangers arguably played their best hockey of the season; better than they did during their seven-game winning streak two weeks ago. Don't get me wrong, there were times when they looked very sharp throughout that streak, but they weren't playing to their potential.  In a very well...

Video: Watch The Derek Boogaard Tribute At Wild/Flames Game (11/27)

… amazing.  I really hope the New York Rangers have a tribute for Derek Boogaard, Alexander Karpovtsev and Karel Rachunek soon. I really am disappointed with the organization when it comes to paying their respects to 3 former teammates who all died tragically and WAY TOO SOON.

After a scoreless first period Friday, New York turned up its play in the second 20 minutes, scoring four times before finishing with a season high for goals in a 6-3 win over the erratic Washington Capitals. ''Nothing was said. We've had enough meetings the past couple of days about...

Vote for Girardi 90 Times

Similar to last Tuesday, I'm asking everyone to vote at least 90 times for Dan Girardi today. The second results of All Star voting will be released tomorrow.The best way to get around the 30 vote limit using the online ballot is to create numerous NHL profiles using multiple e-mail accounts. The easiest way to do this is by using disposable e-mail accounts. The way to...

Rangers’ in Need of Some New Blood and a Quick Turnaround?
