- The Red Wings have scored just three goals during their current three game losing streak.
- Henrik Zetterberg hasn't scored in his last four games after getting six goals in his first seven.
- Daniel Alfredsson and Johan Franzen have combined for only three goals this year, though Alfredsson does lead the team with eight assists.
- The Red Wings are 12-1-1 in their last 14 games against the Rangers.
- Pavel Datsyuk is pointless in his last two games after a five game point scoring streak (4g, 5a).
- Stephen Weiss, who signed a five-year, $24.5 million contract with the Red Wings this past offseason, has just two goals and is a -4 this season.
- When most people think of Rangers/Red Wings they think history and Original Six. Me? I think Domi vs. Probert...

Nightmare on Helm Street
You think that trading Hank is becoming a real possibilty? I can see it happening if they dont get a deal done soon, in the end i think a deal get done but we could get something real nice back for him
amazing... with the Pens loss tonight, with our two games in hand we could be only 4 points out of first :O
Nice, some confidence coming back to the garden. Good win boys. Cant ask for anything more from Talbot
Kreider looked good. Pouliot looked good. I don't care if they don't score. Just get to the puck first, or take the body and get the puck. If you have enough size, speed and snarl the pucks will eventually go into the net. This team has sorely missed Dubinski and Prust in this respect. They help tilt the ice and THAT wins games. Talbot looks good. No he is not Hank, but he doesn't have to be. He just has to be good enough so that you can trade Hank. That way the Rangers not only avoid a huge and lengthy contract that Hank will not fulfill at the end, but they could get a real talent in return,
BRASSARD! HUGE WIN! I wish this team showed up every night... 3-6 not great but with the current state of our division ill take it... back to the garden... Great game from Talbot and Kreider.... Pouliot and Zuccs came on after early mistakes...
One point.... this second point would be a HUGE boost for the Rangers on their way back home.... LGR!!!
Haven't watched Talbot much. How is he with stick handling the puck? (Not that anyone could be worse than Hank.)
Rangers look very good tonight, with their current roster.. I am beyond impressed and I am enjoying this... lets get a W.... LGR!!!
Pyatt takes that penalty and starts for the third period... it just baffles me....
Pyatt just killed all our momentum... Why the fuck is this guy still on our team. AV should be fired for this alone
You can't help but be excited about Kreider's play tonight. I would say he has been dominating tonight, in every aspect... d-zone, o-zone... just needs to put one in
it doesn't get any more blatant than this... the Rangers are dominating this team, but because their roster has 0 finishing ability they are losing
@johnnyb3910 Even with Zucc in the lineup?
@Paulie Gualtieri its still only two games, I don't think you can expect talbot to be a starter in the NHL right now... If the Rangers aren't .500 by 25-30 games in than it becomes a possibility... but right now no.
@Say my Name "So that you can trade Hank." Really? Is that what we really want? That should, literally, be the last case scenario. The only way we trade Hank is if we don't turn it around and if we absolutely can't get a deal done. Hank will still give us the best chance to get a shot at the cup. Talbot may end up being a solid goaltender, but the difference between Talbot and Hank is that Hank is proven.
@Say my Name looks pretty above average at it, at least compared to Hank he looks like a pro
@Iron Mike he holds av pack of gum
@Iron Mike because he has soft lips....
@jvr you can thank Pyatt... he spoon fed it to them
@NYR44 TRADE EVERYONE ! one, and it was ruined by DZ
@shoot_the_goalie @Say my Name @JoshKaye Well the option is to either pay him an amount that will extremely hinder the ability to improve the team in other areas, or lose him for nothing. If you do the former you will end up with a great, but aging and eventually declining goalie in front of a mediocre team year after year - hardly the recipe for success.
