Rangers fall once again

December 12, 2009

Rangers have lost six out of their last seven

Associated Press

NEW YORK — Tough guy Patrick Kaleta scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal in the second period, and the Buffalo Sabres shook off an uncharacteristic rough beginning by Ryan Miller in a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Kaleta, known more for his fists than offensive touch, scored from in-close in the first and then converted a short-handed breakaway in the second to give the Sabres a 3-2 lead. He entered with 10 goals in 124 NHL games, but pushed his season total to a career-best five with his first two-goal game.

Too much turkey- Rangers look slow, lose big

Not the return to Tampa Coach Tortorella envisioned

The Rangers traveled to the St. Pete Times Forum on Saturday night to play the Tampa Bay Lightning where the Lightning have played exceptionally well this year holding a record of 5-1-4.  If we break this down, this means that when the Lightning play at home, in 90 percent of their games, they have emerged with at least one point.   In order for the Rangers to win tonight it was obvious they needed to  play at an extremely high level for the entire game.

Revenge is a dish sometimes best served warm

Marian Gaborik redirects for his league leading 19th goal

After a disappointing loss on Saturday at the Garden against the Florida Panthers in a game where the Rangers undoubtedly deserved the win, the Rangers were able to get redemption a few days later beating the Florida Panthers in a very strong all around performance by the Blueshirts.

It was good to see Chris Drury back on the ice after suffering a concussion on November 7th.  The team has been in disarray since he went down and they certainly missed his presence.

Making it rain; Rangers squash Jackets with 7-goal outburst

November 24, 2009

Gaborik had two goals and two assists

NEW YORK — Fiery coach John Tortorella had a calm, reassuring tone and message after the New York Rangers fell into an early two-goal hole.

He called timeout and told his club to relax. It was only two goals and there were still nearly 50 minutes remaining for a comeback against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Marian Gaborik got the offense going, the Rangers took the lead before the first period was over and they rolled to a 7-4 victory Monday night.

Home, not so sweet home-Rangers drop 3 in a row at the Garden

November 22, 2009

Rangers are 4-9-1 in their last 14 games

The Rangers entered last nights game against the Florida Panthers with a 4-8-1 record in their last 13 games.  With Florida playing 3 games in 4 nights, one would think that this is the perfect time to rout the ship, but the truth of the matter is that the Rangers just are not very good.

From the drop of the puck, the first 10 minutes belonged to the Panthers as the Rangers were getting out skated and outplayed from the get go.  Truthfully, they looked like a team who had a few days between games because they were a step behind the quicker and younger Panther squad.
