Bleeding All Blue:
The New York Rangers were stymied by the St. Louis
Blues defense for almost the entire 60 minutes giving them little ability to
generate anything offensively in a 4-1 defeat Thursday night. The Rangers went long stretches unable to
even generate a shot on goal and that just will not get it done against quality
Against a team that plays the defensive game that St.
Louis does the last thing you can afford to do is fall behind early and the
Rangers were down 2-0 just 11 minutes in.
Patrik Berglund got the Blues going 7:06 in when the Rangers allowed him
to walk off the wall and into the faceoff circle beating Lundqvist with a
wrister. St. Louis added to in when David
Perron was left alone in the slot for a beautiful tip goal 3:57 later. The Fedotenko, Richards, Callahan line was on
for both goals against and it resulted in both Richards and Fedotenko being
benched for the rest of the period.
The Rangers showed life late in the second period and

Carl Hagelin continues to impress, night in and night out. Described by Coach John Tortorella as the fastest player he’s ever coached, Hagelin is the physical manifestation of the blueprint that General Manager Glen Sather laid out several years ago when he shifted gears away from a focus on free agent acquisitions and began to concentrate instead on drafting and trading for...

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Steve Eminger said there was one reason for his bump to the Rangers’ third defensive pair in Thursday night’s 4-1 loss to the Blues, and it had nothing to do with his sore right arm.
Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers are no strangers to posting shutouts, but they saw the tables turned on them last time out.
Brian Elliott made 25 saves, and Alex Steen had a goal and an assist in the St. Louis Blues' 4-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night.
A pair of teams shooting for their fifth consecutive wins will meet tonight in the Music City, as the Nashville Predators host the St. Louis Blues in a Central Division clash at Bridgestone Arena.
