I said before the game that if the New York Rangers found a way to somehow beat the San Jose Sharks and snap their five-game winning streak tonight, it would be a tremendous confidence booster for a hockey club that's struggled in their first nine games. Looking at tonight's 5-2 winning performance as a whole, it was absolutely the Blueshirts' most complete game of the season to date, so maybe a little more than just a confidence booster it turned out to be. The Rangers finally have a game to look back on and say "this is how we need to play", because before tonight, I don't think they even came close to having one of those.
Captain Ryan Callahan wore the cape for the Rangers tonight, tallying two goals and an assist to lead the team to victory with a heroic effort. Cally got it all started at 4:46 of the first period when he fed Ryan McDonagh a perfect pass for a one-timer, which McD buried for his third of the season to give the Rangers an early lead. ...

… how much sweeter is life when the Rangers win and we get to see pictures of them rocking The Broadway Hat and smiling? More of this please Rangers. Thanks. With that being said, Ryan Callahan totally deserved the hat after last night’s win and being the #1 star of the game. Captain Ryan Callahannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
… Ryan Callahan started the season out slow but is now coming around. It also helps that he has a playmaker like Brad Richards centering his line now as well. Photo courtesy of our friends at Photoshop The Rangers
Ryan Callahan rightfully was the player everyone gushed about tonight. He had an outstanding game, borderline spectacular, scoring 2 goals, nabbing a helper, and leading the Rangers to victory. But the player my eyes seemed glued to tonight was Wojtek Wolski. No, not because of how he cost us the game against the Sens. The reason I kept my eyes on him was because of the way he...

Ryan Callahan is only 10 games into his tenure as captain of the New York Rangers, and nothing spells leadership more than two goals and an assist in the long-awaited first home win. Doing it against the NHL's hottest team makes it even better.

The New York Rangers 3-3-3 record to start the season
leaves much to be desired. Worse yet is
that the level of play on the ice isn’t even worthy of that mediocre record. The Rangers are lacking a lot of things on
both ends of the ice to open the season, but beyond the offensive and defensive
problems they seem to be lacking any sense...

The Rangers gave themselves a blueprint for how to hold a lead in their first home victory of the young season: Get everyone involved. Four Blueshirts registered at least two points, led by captain Ryan Callahan (two goals, one assist), as the Rangers (4-3-3) snapped a two-game skid with a 5-2 win over San Jose (6-4-0) at the Garden. In the process, they ended a five-game winning...
No. 1 Star: Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks
Kane scored in the first and third period and helped set up Nick Leddy's tally in the second as the Blackhawks got past the Nashville Predators 5-4 in overtime. Marian Hossa assisted on three goals and in overtime it was Viktor Stalberg making Jack Hillen look silly:

I had some expectations for this Rangers team this season. It’s a team that made the playoffs last year and essentially replaced the aging injury riddled former captain Chris Drury with superstar center Brad Richards. Henrik Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world, our young home-grown guys like Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky were [...]
