Last night, Rangers website beat writer Jim Cerny reported that after speaking with reporters, Brad Richards sat by himself hunched in the corner with his hat pulled low.
Cerny added that Ryan McDonagh went over to console Richards and that tremendous frustration has built up for the Rangers Alternate Captain.
Richards was pointless with no shots on goal and won just nine of 20 faceoffs in the Rangers 4-2 loss to the Flyers last night. He also lost a huge faceoff that led to Kimmo Timonen's goal.
Richards is now pointless in four straight games.
Here's what Richards said after the game...
“I cannot explain it. It’s tough to figure.”
...i really have no idea what to think with Richards. Sure he didn't light it up last year, but he had one of the great all-time clutch seasons for the Rangers. Now, he can't even score on empty nets. Could he have gotten this old, this quick? We saw it with Drury and it might be happening again with Richards.
