NEW YORK (AP) -- Dan Girardi and Brandon Dubinsky scored 9 seconds apart midway through the third period and the New York Rangers went on to rout the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
Girardi snapped a wrist shot from the top of the right circle past goalie Cam Ward, off a perfect cross-ice pass from Brad Richards at 10:47 The power-play goal, with Eric Staal in the penalty box for high-sticking Girardi, snapped a 1-1 tie.
Dubinsky scored off the ensuing faceoff after Rangers captain Ryan Callahan slid the puck in front of Ward from the right boards. Dubinsky, who scored 24 goals last season, celebrated his first of this season with a skyward scream of relief before he was mobbed by teammates. Callahan and Brad Richards scored late in the third to cement the win.
Sean Avery also scored his first goal of the season for the Rangers (9-3-3), who haven't lost since they squandered a three-goal, third- period lead against Ottawa on Oct. 29. The ...

It is just another flaw in the All Star balloting, as the Rangers best defenseman thus far, Dan Girardi...

It took a lot longer than anyone expected, but New
York Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky has finally tallied his first goal of the
season. The level of relief on the face
of Dubinsky immediately following the puck hitting the back of the net showed
just how much the drought was weighing on the 25-year-old forward. As he said postgame...
The New York Rangers are still waiting for center Brandon Dubinsky to break out.
Signed to a four-year, $16.8 million extension in the offseason, Dubinsky has yet to score a goal this campaign.
"I’m only human. It’s been tough mentally a little bit not getting those points and to not contribute offensively on a consistent basis," the 25-year-old Dubinsky told the...
Up until last night I had been praising Brandon Dubinsky for continuing to work hard despite not finding the back of the net this season.And while he has taken an unusually high amount of penalties for him this early season, I never felt any of them were due to frustrationBut that change last night as after a give away in the Senators zone he took an undisciplined interference penalty...

Dan Girardi and Brandon Dubinsky scored 9 seconds apart midway through the third period and the New York Rangers went on to rout the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
Head coach John Tortorella let it all come out after Friday's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes when he was asked about defenseman Dan Girardi being left off the All-Star ballot and not being recognized as a top player in the National Hockey League. Below are his comments on the matter courtesy of Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants...
"Oh, this league," said Tortorella, waving...
Brandon Dubinsky buried a rebound for his long-awaited first goal of the season in the Blueshirts’ sixth straight win, 5-1, over the Carolina Hurricanes. To celebrate, he raised both arms, tilted his head back and let out the scream of a player who had finally broken through
No one has to tell Brandon Dubinsky the numbers. Zero is an easy one to remember. Dubinsky, who signed a $16.8 million contract after leading the Rangers in scoring last season, still is searching for his first goal.
The New York Rangers (9-3-3) defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (5-8-3) by the score of 5-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....most fun I've had watching this team in a long time. Everything is clicking right now. Heck they even scored a power play goal tonight....Avery proved tonight he can still be an effective player in this league if he uses his speed...
Friday night at the Garden, Eric Staal's high-sticking penalty on Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi cut a third-period Carolina power play short, and the Blueshirts responded with three goals in three minutes on the way to a 5-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
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.
