I’m not going to bicker about the calls. We’re in the (penalty) box too much. Simple as that. I’m not going to sit here and gripe. We have to be more disciplined. No excuses. (The Islanders) were the better hockey team, and the more disciplined team. - John Tortorella on loss to Islanders … yes, [...]

Coach John Tortorella met with the media following tonight's 4-2 loss to the Islanders and while he took some of the blame for the loss on himself he was not having any of the blame game on the officials or the schedule. While some of the calls were lousy against the Rangers tonight, Tortorella is right that it is a discipline problem from his own team that has had them behind...
After being a non factor for the New York Rangers opening three games this season, only playing 7:55 tonight, Mats Zuccarello has been sent down to the Connecticut Whale according to Andrew Gross. The early performance is disappointing for Zuccarello as he had an excellent camp/preseason to secure the spot to start the year.

… they are just excited about today’s game than the fans are. The countdown is on for 7:00pm when the Rangers and Islanders get to faceoff and the Rangers WILL walk away with their first win of the season.

The opening game in the North American leg of the 2011-12 New York Rangers season opened last night on Long Island. There is a tendency for most fans to exaggerate the outcome of a Ranger-Islanders game. Depending on the result, it’s either “we’re gonna win the Cup!” or “good Lord, we are the worst team [...]
You want to blame the refs. But you can’t blame the refs. You need to blame the refs. But you can’t blame the refs. Every fiber of your being is telling you that the refs are to blame for this loss. But you can’t blame the refs. Why? Because only 1 of the calls against the Rangers was not legit. That was the Brian Boyle call. So while that may have been a bad call...

The number one question New York Ranger fans ask is why in the world do we also cover of all teams the New York Islander? One it was a natural desire to expand Prospect Park but a second perhaps even more important reason; a good solider wants to know as much about his enemy before battle as possible.
Like it or not, the Islanders and Rangers are rivals so knowing as much as possible...
