The New York Rangers (26-17-3) lost to the Montreal Canadiens (25-17-3) by the score of 3-2, tonight. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports and newyorkrangers.com.
...with the outstanding effort in the third period you have to wonder why it wasn't there in the first two and why they needed their goaltender jumping a Canadiens player to get them going.
...Hank was a man on an island alone tonight. Absolutely no help. Good for him standing up for himself because God knows his teammate won't.
...lack of offense has been masked by Hank and defense lately, but it is very alarming. And the number one culprit is Gaborik. He is just way too invisible.
...bad game for Wolski tonight as he couldn't convert on numerous opportunities.
...not a surprise that the Rangers started playing well once Torts gave Avery more minutes.
...thought Sauer might have had his worst game all season.
...can't believe I'm saying this but Boyle has become more of a go to guy than Gaborik.
...not sure why but when things start rolling downhill for the Rangers in Montreal they can't stop it. The only thing that saved them in the first period was that it ended.
...MZA from Stepan. I love it.
...do you realize Drury has absolutely zero goals this season? Wow.
...i don't blame Dubi for trying to get back at Subban but I think he got too caught up in it and took careless penalties.
...quick turnaround for the Rangers as Flyers are in town tomorrow.
