Well that was interesting. The Rangers keep finding ways to lose games. First they couldn’t muster any offense, now they can’t hold leads and through all of it, they have still to play a complete game this season, something they were nowhere near to doing this afternoon. With the 5-4 shootout victory for the Senators in the books, let’s get to some thoughts on the game.
Apparently not everyone hates Sean Avery. Rangers fans, upset that the club sent the forward down to the Connecticut Whale this preseason, chanted "we want Avery!" during the team's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday night. The home opener also featured a banner that read "16 Avery, Send Torts to the Whale" -- a reference to head coach John Tortorella...
Fans of the NHL are very aware of how a superstar player is performing throughout the year, whether it’s good or bad. Fantasy hockey is becoming more and more popular with each season and social media even allows fans to follow their teams with up-to-the-minute information. What you don’t often hear about is their off-ice activities – unless it is something negative.

The New York Rangers are known for their consistently inconsistent
offense. One thing you can always count
on when the team fails to score is that coach John Tortorella will put the
lines in the blender and start over again, which he did today at practice. Katie
Strang of ESPN New York tweeted the lines:
John Tortorella yesterday continued to express the utmost confidence that his wobbly 3-3-2 Rangers will gain solid footing on the season that continues with this afternoon's Garden contest against the Senators.
The coach quickly said, "We will . . . we will," interrupting a question about whether the Rangers would be able...
Josh Harding made 36 saves and Dany Heatley scored to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 1-0 victory over the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Jimmy Howard made 19 saves for the Red Wings, who have lost four games in a row after a 5-0 start. Heatley's goal was his third of the season for the Wild, who overcame a 36-20 deficit in shots thanks to Harding's steady play in net.
IT's Halloween, and if you're like me, you constantly forget that Halloween falls during the NHL season. It doesn't seem like it fits, does it? I think winter and spring wihen I think hockey, not autumn Of course, the Wild offense IS ghastly, so perhaps I should be reminded of that fact every time Mikko Koivu opts to pass instead of shooting at a wide open net.But I digress...
John Tortorella may be impatient over Brad Richards’ lack of chemistry with Marian Gaborik, but as Saturday’s 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators demonstrated, the Rangers have bigger problems.
