The New York Rangers rode a four goal third period to win their sixth straight win, 5-1 over the Carolina Hurricanes. Dan Girardi scored on the power play at 10:47 to break a 1-1 tie. Just nine seconds later Brandon Dubinsky scored his first of the season. The look of relief on his face was great and to see how happy all his teammates were tells what he means in the room. Callahan sealed the deal with a goal off a scramble in front. The goal might be credited to Callahan, but Dubinsky's work along the boards created the goal. Brad Richards finished the four-goal period when Cam Ward botched handling the puck leaving an empty .net with 1:34 left. Sean Avery scored a beautiful goal in the first and played an excellent overall game. Alexei Ponikarovsky had the lone goal for the Hurricanes following a bad defensive play by Michael Del Zotto. More later.

Girardi Not On All Star Ballot; Time For A Write-In Campaign

When the All Star ballots for this year were released, there were four Rangers on the ballot: Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, and Marc Staal. Lundqvist, Richards, and Gaborik were expected to be on the ballot, but Staal hasn’t played a single game this year.

Dan’s the man for Blueshirts 

Even looking at tape, John Tortorella can find something new that impresses him about Dan Girardi. On Saturday after practice in Greenburgh, it wasn’t the defenseman’s game-winning goal in Friday night’s win that had caught Tortorella’s eye.
