from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
If the Rangers had lost a 1-0 game like this two years ago in which they owned a huge territorial edge and blasted 41 shots on net as they did Sunday at the Garden against the Sharks, the cry would have gone out for the front office to go get a big-time goal-scorer who would produce when it really mattered.
Someone, maybe, like Rick Nash.
If not Nash, maybe a Marty St. Louis.
The thing is, the Rangers and general manager Glen Sather already acquired those players, Nash about two years ago and St. Louis about two weeks ago in sending away three Bluebloods to get them. Yet, here are the Blueshirts, still struggling like mad to put the puck in the net as the season drip, drip, drips through the hourglass and the race — or is that the noose? — tightens.
