Well that was interesting. The Rangers keep finding ways to lose games. First they couldn’t muster any offense, now they can’t hold leads and through all of it, they have still to play a complete game this season, something they were nowhere near to doing this afternoon. With the 5-4 shootout victory for the Senators in the books, let’s get to some thoughts on the game.
Gaborik and Richards looked good tonight. Gaborik in particular has had a good start to the year and it showed today. He was full of energy and yet again he went to the net and was rewarded. That’s how you score goals and what was missing last year. I’m ready to declare that Gaborik is definitely back.
Seriously, the Rangers have been outshot in every single game? That is an abysmal trend.
The Rangers first period was dire. Their second period was solid and they began the third fine, then they lost complete control. 4 goals scored (to an extent) masks another poor performance
Erik Christensen doesn’t score in shooto...

Sean Avery made his debut for the Connecticut Whale last night, scoring an empty net goal and immediately having a fight as the CT Whale defeated the Adirondack Phantoms 4-2 to take over first place in the division. The news of Avery being back on the ice and scoring, even if an empty-netter, was welcomed by Avery's Army of fans. Glad Sean is back on the ice, but he still...
Following today's 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators the New York Rangers announced some roster moves sending both D Tim Erixon and F Kris Newbury to the Connecticut Whale (AHL). Erixon has been up and down with his play thus far this season, while Newbury has been a non-factor while getting little ice time on the fourth line. It will be interesting to see who, if anyone...
This offseason was a tragic one for the NHL, KHL, and global hockey. The tragic deaths of former Ranger Derek Boogaard, Rick Rypien, Wade Belak, and the entire KHL Locomotiv squad –which included many former NHLers– have been acknowledged league wide with moments of silence and video tributes. However for MSG, the tragedies were only met with a TV timeout montage. This, in short...
In the second period against Toronto, Michael Sauer showed just how the New York Rangers when he missed the previous five games with this spectacular defensive play. Welcome back Sauer, we all missed you.
The pathetic effort from the Rangers in their home opener against the Maple Leafs on Thursday was one thing. Tonight's collapse against the Ottawa Senators? A whole different level of disappointment. The Rangers had this game in the palms of their hands, up 4-1 in the third period with the crowd on their side, but once Jason Spezza scored for the Senators to cut the deficit to...
Last night Larry Brooks at the New York Post reported that the New York Rangers were still waiting on defenseman Anton Stralman to inform them of his decision on their contract offer from last week.
This morning Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet said that Stralman is set to sign with the Rangers shortly.
The decision to send Erixon down last night signals that another move on...

So much for transformation huh?
I don’t want to make this some drawn-out bitter post, which seems to be the Modus Operandi today, so here are a few thoughts about last night’s loss.
What do you make of Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov? Dubi was great controlling the puck down low and working the forecheck early in the game. After the second he was skating into double...
