The New York Rangers (33-27-4) lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning (37-18-7) by the score of 2-1, this afternoon. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports and newyorkrangers.com.
...i know the officiating was brutal but you've got to stay out of the box when you're playing against a team with that fire power. And how about being ready to play for an afternoon game. Tampa was.
...o-for-4 on the power play. This McCabe guy sucks. ;) Actually despite the O'fer, I really liked what he brought. Nice to have a bomb back there for once.
...can someone remind me to get that Prust jersey? Man I love that guy.
...in a game where the Rangers desperately needed a spark how does Avery only get four minutes of ice time?
...you would think with the Rangers finally dominating in the face-off circle (65%) they would have more opportunities to score.
...you know your offense is struggling when you create more scoring chances on the penalty kill than at even strength.
...hate to criticize Hank when he only gives up two goals but he's got to have that first one.
...you know what this team needs? Brad Richards. Still not sure I want them to empty their coffers for him though.
...and the enigmatic EC strikes again. After one of his best games as a Ranger, no shots on goal this afternoon.
...i know the second one was borderline at best, but Dubi's got to cut down on the stupid penalties.
...huge game on Tuesday with the hard charging Sabres in town. Will Richards be as well?
