There’s no worse feeling for a team in the NHL than losing in overtime or a shootout just as the Rangers did last night against their rivals, the New York Islanders. But there is no better feeling than to come out the very next night and win in overtime or a shootout just as the Rangers did this evening against the Buffalo Sabres in front of their home crowd. In my opinion, it was the perfect bounce-back response that the Blueshirts needed following the loss to the Isles, especially since it prevented a three-game losing streak to develop.
The Rangers had their legs from the start tonight for a change, and they quickly applied pressure on Ryan Miller and the Sabres. Miller, playing in the second of a back-to-back, had an answer for all 14 shots the Blueshirts sent his way in that opening stanza, though. New York even had a partial powerplay to end the first, in which they bombarded Miller’s crease with all sorts of commotion, but Ryan stood strong to weather the storm.

On Friday, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported the Rangers were going to put Sean Avery on re-entry waivers before 3pm yesterday.

A little bit of a different approach tonight; breaking the game down by period. The Rangers dropped a decision to the Isles, 4-3 at the Coliseum having trailed by two twice in the game.
Simply put, the Rangers stunk out the Coliseum in the first period and were lucky to be just the odd goal down heading in to the first intermission. Some first period thoughts for your...
The New York Rangers are discussing the possibility of putting forward Sean Avery on re-entry waivers so he could possibly play in the NHL this season, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post. If Avery is claimed on re-entry, the Rangers would be hit with a $209,460 salary cap charge for the remainder [...]
Via Mark Spector, talks between the Rangers and Blue Jackets regarding Rick Nash have “advanced.” The reported package includes one of Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto, a prospect (apparently Tim Erixon), and a first round pick. The Rangers believe this offer gives them the edge over the Maple Leafs, and I would sure hope it would. That’s a serious haul.
As Dave said on Twitter...
The Sabres just can’t decide on whether or not they want to be bad and bottom out, or good and make a run to the playoffs. After being 15th in the conference and ten points back just one week ago, Buffalo has climbed four spots and have come within five points of the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.

Derek Roy scored the decisive shootout goal in lifting the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Friday night.
Ryan Miller made 35 saves through regulation and stopped three of four shootout attempts in helping the Sabres improve to 3-0-1 in their past four games. Andrej Sekera scored for the Sabres, who are 8-3-2 in their past 13 games.
Zdeno Chara scored the tying...
Good Gravy. That about sums up my feelings on last night’s game. It made me loathe the shootout even more. Now, I’m not saying that the Rangers played well enough last night to be worthy of 2 points. But I was baffled at the line up that the coaching staff decided to go with. The [...]
