The New York Rangers (13-10-2) lost to the Buffalo Sabres (10-14-3) by the score of 3-1, tonight. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports.
...i'd be upset with tonight's results if I didn't see it coming from a mile away. And from the comments on the blog earlier today, I think you guys did also. Backup goaltender who hasn't won a game in his last 17 starts? Talk about a recipe for disaster. The Rangers didn't have a chance.
...not even close to enough offensive pressure on Enroth early in the game allowed him to settle in, so when the Rangers made their third period push he was already comfortable and in the zone.
...it's not very often you can say that penalties lost the Rangers the game when they don't allow a power play goal AND score a short-handed tally. Destroyed any rhythm, while leaving their best player on the bench for long stretches.
...while I never enjoy when the Rangers take too many penalties, I absolutely love watching Callahan on the penalty kill.
