The New York Rangers (31-12-5) lost to the New Jersey Devils (27-19-3) by the score of 4-3 in a shootout, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.
…and tonight’s #1 star goes to the Prudential Center stanchion guy. Embarrassing that’s allowed to happen in an NHL rink.
…to the actual game, after a dreadfully slow start by both teams, I thought it was a very entertaining contest. Big goals, big hits and big saves. Couldn’t ask for more, you know, except a Rangers win. Which I thought they played well enough to get.
…not sure how many times I have to say it, but when Gaborik deke’s in the shootout he doesn’t score.
…where’s EC, Wolski and Zucc when you need them?
…Biron deserved better than to lose because of a bad bounce like that.
…got to feel good for Stralman getting one against the team that cut him in camp.
…a power play goal would have helped tonight.
…back up to a +24 on the season for Del Zotto who was a +2 to go along with his 6th goal of the season.
…boy Hagelin is fun to watch out there.
…after getting abused by Parise on the Devils first goal it was nice to see Bickel respond with a great play leading to Boyle’s tally.
…speaking of Boyle let’s hope tonight’s goal is the first step towards him re-gaining his scoring touch from last year.
…never like to criticize Callahan, but he’s got to get that one deep on the pk. Bad turnouver leads to Kovalchuk score.
…not the best return from the break for Richards who was pointless, missed his shootout attempt and was just 3-of-12 on faceoffs. Wonder if Munn cleaned out her stuff from his apartment over the weekend.
…not really sure what Fedotenko is bringing to the table at this point.
…right back at it tomorrow night in Buffalo.
