The New York Rangers (7-5-1) loss to the New York Islanders (5-7-1) by the score of 4-3 in a shootout. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports. ... first off, sorry for the late recap. Bad night for the Rangers, even worse for TheNYRBlog. My kids have had the flu all week and it hit me last night, while Adam, who was going to fill-in, lost internet access. Just a complete cluster-F. ...to the game, obviously Brian Boyle's fault the Rangers lost. lol. In all seriousness, I told Torts not to mess with success. I'm not saying the Rangers win with Kreider still in the line-up, but it's too easy to criticize Torts now. ...the change in line-up also muddied the Miller decision. Based on the last few games it looks like it might be better to send him back. But having said that, maybe he would have been better last night if he played with Kreider. Again, another reason Torts should have just left the line-up. ...can someone explain to me why Biron was so deep in the crease all night? Not aggressive at all. If you played at the top of the crease he easily saves two of the three regulation goals. ...officially the worst power play in NHL history. And they scored last night. ...Nash absolutely undresses Rask on a ridiculous deke the other night and then just shoots at Nabakov last night. C'mon Rick, you've got moves use them. ...how many more years in that Richards contract? ...Halpern finally becoming the face-off guy we thought he was with a 11-for-14 effort. ...it really is amazing how Nash has turned around Hagelin and Stepan's games. Hagelin has looked like a legit All Star the last week. ...Capitals visit MSG on Sunday. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
