Some post-game stuff. Henrik Lundqvist sounded relieved to finally win a shootout. Marian Gaborik was glad to get the call in the breakaway contest. John Tortorella knew Gaborik’s awful career stats in the skills competition.
Tortorella also talked about the top four Rangers defensemen, and spoke honestly about Jeff Woywitka (who wore the Broadway Hat) fitting in the lockerroom, and needing to be in better shape.
Here we go:
ps, the Rangers still haven’t announced the Anton Stralman signing.

Historically Marian Gaborik has been bad in the shootout, but on Thursday night
he netted the winner in the third round to give the New York Rangers the 2-1
victory over Anaheim. Following Gaborik’s
goal Henrik Lundqvist got a little payback against Bobby Ryan shutting him down
to end the game. The payback for
Lundqvist was both from Ryan’s shootout winner October 8th...
The shootout victory has become routine for the Rangers. Whether they hang on to stay even with opponents or tie the score late, the Rangers enter the shootout for the win (and second standings point) feeling good about their chances. They have Henrik Lundqvist on their side.

New York Rangers coach John Tortorella didn’t take kindly to San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton calling his team “soft” following New York’s 5-2 victory over San Jose on Monday night.

Marian Gaborik made up for a frustrating night by scoring in the last round of a shootout to give the New York Rangers a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.
As I anticipated, head coach John Tortorella has confirmed that he will be going with the same lineup tomorrow versus the Ducks as he did on Monday against the San Jose Sharks. That means Sean Avery, who practiced with the team for the first time today, will not suit up.
Avery told the Daily News that he completely understands why he will not be in the lineup, and agrees with...
Erik Christensen and Marian Gaborik juked and scored on Jonas Hiller in Thursday night’s shootout, giving the Rangers a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.
