...not used to seeing an effort like that from this team. The Rangers have been playing well without Callahan, but you have to wonder if he could have sparked the team tonight. Just throw this one out Rangers fans. It's going to happen during the course of an 82-game schedule.
...hate to waste a great effort from Biron. Need to come up with more offense when your backup is on.
...guess last night's goal didn't spark Gaborik. Only one shot tonight.
...hate to put pressure on the youngster, but we're going to need to start seeing some goals from MZA soon. We also need his linemates to start burying some of his great passes.
...guess the extra padding on the gloves didn't help Fedotenko tonight.
...not much from Del Zotto in his return. Got caught going down too early on the Higgins goals.
...i know Weise wants to get in good with the team, but he can't take that penalty that led to the first goal.
...another terrible showing at the faceoff dot.
...under 10 minutes of ice time again for Avery in a game screaming for his energy.
...puzzling to see the Rangers run and gun a bit in the third, which ended up costing them.
...off the next two days and the Hurricanes blow into town on Wednesday.
