The New York Rangers may be atop the Eastern Conference despite some streaky play over the last two months, but there is no disguising their recent offensive struggles. A prime example was last night's 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, in which it was a grind to generate much of anything in the offensive zone for the Blueshirts, and they were unable to convert on the very few legitimate scoring chances that did arise. The concern here is with the team's secondary scoring, which has been absent beyond the top three - Marian Gaborik, Ryan Callahan and Brad Richards - and is in need of a change.

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...
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.

The New York Rangers have an ample cushion atop the Eastern Conference, but coach John Tortorella's focus is on turning around a sluggish stretch and not on where his team sits in the standings.
The Rangers look to re-establish their success on the road by beating the rival New York Islanders again Friday night.
The Rangers (38-15-5) are on top of the East by seven points over...
