The Bay Cave:
The Lightning capped off their road trip with a 5-1 loss against the New York Rangers. Tampa Bay was virtually eliminated from competing against New York just :30 seconds into the game when Carl Hagelin redirected a shot in net to beat Mathieu Garon. Nearly 15 minutes later, Ryan Callahan put the Rangers up 2-0 in the first period with his wrist shot. After Hagelin scored his second goal of the night to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead, the Lightning finally got on the scoreboard. Vinny Lecavalier squeezed one past Henrik Lundqvist off the rebound to cut the deficit to 3-1. But that’s all the Lightning would get as New York would get two more in the third period, ending the Lightning’s road trip on an extremely low note. Lightning turnovers once again turned into points for the opposition. They also had several scoring chances in the first period but were unable to capitalize. The Bolts went 0-2 on the power play to end their road trip power play woes at 0-10. They’ll hope to improve on that as they The post Lightning go winless during road trip appeared first on The Bay Cave.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Carl Hagelin had two goals and an assist, and Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves in the New York Rangers' 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay that extended the Lightning's losing streak to four games Sunday night.

There was a lot to be excited about after last night's 5-1 victory of the Lightning. Carl Hagelin's two goals, the fourth line's outstanding play and of course Henrik Lundqvist. But for me, the best part of the night was watching Ryan McDonagh do this to Alexander Killorn when the Lightning forward thought he could poke at Lundqvist after the whistle...
The Rangers had plenty to celebrate tonight.
The Rangers rode an offensively strong first period and turned it into a pretty dominant 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Aside from a somewhat defensively suspect first period (which gave Lundqvist some nice practice time…) and a brain fart on the Lightning goal, this was as near to a complete game as you’ll get.
This is the type of play that made the New York Rangers want Rick Nash so badly. He singlehandedly made this goal possible with his display of sheer athleticism and awesome hands. All Carl Hagelin had to do was put the puck in the empty net with all of the Boston Bruins defenseman pre-occupied with Nash. If the Rangers can get their act together in time for the playoffs, they...
This is what the Rangers had in mind when they acquired Rick Nash in the offseason.
The All-Star forward weaved his way through three Bruins defenders, setting up a wide-open net for teammate Carl Hagelin to deposit the first goal of Tuesday night’s game.
Check out Nash’s nifty moves in the video above.

The Bruins are coming off of a win over the Buffalo Sabres. Goliath beat David the second time. Now the Bruins have to go up against the rangers for the third time already this season. The Rangers are also coming off of a win against a mediocre team; the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Rangers so far this season are a mediocre 6-5 and are 8th in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins are second...
Will Miller be back in another jersey this season or not?
JT Miller has been a pleasant surprise in his brief stay with the Rangers this season. His call up has coincided with (perhaps even caused) the re-emergence of the Rangers much anticipated offensive depth, and has caused players such as Brian Boyle to find themselves in the press box or with less prominent roles.
This is the perfect way to describe tonight's New York Rangers' win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
All goals were even strength as the Blueshirts got even two goals from Carl Hagelin (two goals and one assist) a goal from team captain Ryan Callahan, a goal by fourth liner Arron Asham (his first as a Ranger) and power forward Rick Nash (one goal and one assist) to lead the...
