It’s games like tonight’s 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at CONSOL Energy Center that the Rangers could really use another scoring threat in their lineup. For half of the tilt the scoring chances were not even there, and when they finally did begin to present themselves, the Blueshirts struggled to put one behind Marc-Andre Fleury. The Penguins didn’t put on a spectacular performance tonight; it was more of what the Rangers did and didn’t do that decided this game, and this is the second time in three games in which that’s been the case.

The fifth round pick doesn’t matter much when acquiring a...

Bauer Equipment posted this pic of Henrik Lundqvist's new mask on their Facebook page which he debuted Tuesday night in Pittsburgh......i thought he looked different. With the way the team played in front of him in Pittsburgh maybe he should stick with the old mask.
