The New York Rangers are once again searching for answers to solve their power play woes.  According to the team's official twitter Anton Stralman got a chance to show what he can do on special teams today practicing with a first unit that included Brad Richards, Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky and Eric Christensen.  Interesting to see Christensen and Dubinsky on the top unit, but no Marian Gaborik. 

There was no reporting on the second unit but Stepan, Gaborik, Del Zotto and possibly Girardi seem like safe bets to be on the other unit.  I have no problem with shaking up the groupings as it is clearly not working.  Hopefully Stralman can use his shot to create chances down low for Dubinsky and Callahan based on these groups.

Rangers Drop Second Straight With 2-1 Loss To Panthers

The New York Rangers didn’t find the sense of urgency they needed following their 4-0 loss Saturday and it cost them again as they fell 2-1 in Florida Wednesday night.  The lack of offense was obvious, but the Rangers are back to the utter lack of energy and effort that was plaguing them to start the season as well.  If that does not change quickly, then the positive...
