The Rangers are now at six in a row. That’s a very impressive streak. You get a short bullet point list because it’s 6am.
- Sean Avery’s goal was superb. What a great individual effort to get the goal.
- There was a bit of a defensive breakdown that led to the Canes goal. It happens.
- The pass from Brad Richards to Dan Girardi on his goal was an amazing pass.
- Good for Dubi to get his first goal. He did it by crashing the net, like he’s been doing all year. He got a lucky bounce. This will be a first of many.
- Right before the Canes goal, Del Zotto made a made pass on the power play when he should have shot.
- Six in a row is a great streak. Seven in a row against the Islanders is even better.
Short review because I want to go to bed. Good night.
BEST OF MAXIM
Last night Sean Avery showed just how effective he can be
for the New York Rangers. In the end he
was not the star of the show as Brandon Dubinsky scoring his first goal of the
year took away much of the spotlight, but Avery was the Rangers best forward
for two periods. Avery provided energy
when much of the lineup was lacking it, scored a beautiful goal top shelf over...
The Rangers’ Sean Avery opened the scoring with his first goal of the season, after averaging five minutes of playing time in his first three games.
Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants has this quote from John Tortorella after Sean Avery's break out performance last night..."Sean played better," Tortorella said. "You could see right away his legs were going. He was pressuring the puck."...he played better?!?!?!? The guy had a sick goal, was a +2 and drew two penalties. I'm pretty sure that's a lot more...
When the All Star ballots for this year were released, there were four Rangers on the ballot: Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, and Marc Staal. Lundqvist, Richards, and Gaborik were expected to be on the ballot, but Staal hasn’t played a single game this year. It is just another flaw in the All Star balloting, as the Rangers best defenseman thus far, Dan Girardi...
Last year we were somehow able to get the most hated player in the NHL the 15th most votes for a forward with half of Rangers nation not supporting the Sean Avery All Star write-in campaign.This year, I thought I'd make it easier on ourselves by picking Dan Girardi as our target.When the NHL announced the All Star ballot this afternoon, somehow the heart and soul of the Rangers...
Head coach John Tortorella let it all come out after Friday's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes when he was asked about defenseman Dan Girardi being left off the All-Star ballot and not being recognized as a top player in the National Hockey League. Below are his comments on the matter courtesy of Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants...
"Oh, this league," said Tortorella, waving...

NEW YORK (AP) Dan Girardi and Brandon Dubinsky scored 9 seconds apart midway through the third period and the New York Rangers
went on to rout the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
Dan Girardi and Brandon Dubinsky scored 9 seconds apart midway through the third period and the New York Rangers went on to rout the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
The Rangers seem to be doing more right than they are doing wrong these days and for the first time this season, the majority of fans are starting to see the bigger picture.
From day one we’ve been preaching patience, defending Sather and Tortorella till we were blue in the face over roster decisions, line permutations, tactics, etc. Lucky for us, the team is progressing just as...
The combination of newcomer Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik didn't produce like New York Rangers coach John Tortorella had hoped, but now the team is getting plenty of contributions from its top line.
The Rangers look to win six straight for the first time in two years Friday night when they host a slumping Carolina Hurricanes team trying to get its offense in gear.
Friday night at the Garden, Eric Staal's high-sticking penalty on Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi cut a third-period Carolina power play short, and the Blueshirts responded with three goals in three minutes on the way to a 5-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
Even looking at tape, John Tortorella can find something new that impresses him about Dan Girardi. On Saturday after practice in Greenburgh, it wasn’t the defenseman’s game-winning goal in Friday night’s win that had caught Tortorella’s eye.
The New York Rangers (9-3-3) defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (5-8-3) by the score of 5-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....most fun I've had watching this team in a long time. Everything is clicking right now. Heck they even scored a power play goal tonight....Avery proved tonight he can still be an effective player in this league if he uses his speed...
