New York Rangers
While this was an extremely frustrating game to endure as a fan of the New York Rangers, the Blueshirts again found a way to come out with two points for their fifth straight victory and tenth in their last eleven games. This game shouldn't have entered overtime or a shootout for that matter, as the Blueshirts had multiple chances to win it and gain a substantial lead within regulation time. However, they ran into a hot goaltender that appeared to be unstoppable and needed the extra time (and rounds) to get the job done. They eventually did and that's all that counts as far as the standings are concerned.
The Rangers dominated the first two periods of the game, outshooting the Coyotes, 21-10, through the first 40 minutes. Despite the domination, though, the Rangers weren't playing smart hockey. Their passes were careless, they were holding onto the puck for too long, there were some bad turnovers defensively - New York was just playing very sloppy in the first two peri...

As the Coyotes threw shot after shot at New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist to no avail in Tuesdays 2-1 shootout loss at Madison Square Garden, you couldnt help thinking: Gosh, if they only had a little more offense.
Yeah. Don Maloney gets that a lot.

I was getting ready to write an article about how, sometimes, you play a really great game and lose. The Rangers have certainly been on the reverse end of that scenario many, many times during Henrik Lundqvists reign as king of NY. But, turns out I need not do that. Instead, the Rangers showed patience (get it, it’s a virtue…get it? I’m here all night folks) and poise...

That is what the New York Rangers will be looking to do tonight against the hot Ottawa Senators.

The Rangers were bound to lose sooner or later. After all, there was no way they were going to finish the season with just nine regulation losses. The Senators are a good team, and they play the Rangers well. With the Rangers loss tonight, the teams are 1-1-1 in three games with one left to go. This was going to be a troublesome game, as we predicted,

1) This is one of my favorite of many stats so far through 40 games, with the mid-point of the season coming Thursday: Henrik Lundqvist, who has won seven in a row, has limited opponents to two goals or fewer 21 times in 29 starts. Holy shishkebob. Yet he was surprisingly 1-3 in shootouts before last night. “It was our turn to win this one and we deserved it, too...

Usually, you find that teams winning 10 of their last 11 games are operating at a very high level as they polish off opponent after opponent without breaking much sweat.
That hasn't been the case for the Rangers. They've had a few nights where they have simply overwhelmed the opposition, but they've also had nights where they came back to find a way to victory and they...
