… Ryan Callahan said what I was thinking, this isn’t your typical Rangers from the last few seasons. One loss does not snowball out of control and lead to long losing streaks. They have bounced back very quickly from a loss to take control of the next game. If the Rangers keep playing this way, [...]

Every time the Blueshirts have had to respond...

This, as expected, was a relatively boring game. The Predators ran their 1-2-2/1-4 trap to perfection, but the Rangers were able to adjust to a dump and chase and generate some goals off board play. In the end, it was a grind it out game that had the Rangers emerge victorious, with another shutout for Henrik Lundqvist. This was a very important win for the Rangers who had lost two...
