Senators 3, Rangers 0

The New York Rangers (16-14-3) lost to the Ottawa Senators (19-9-6) by the score of 3-0, tonight. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports.

…if we learned anything tonight, it's that the Flyers are eff'n awful.

…disgraceful display by the entire Rangers team to play that way with just 16 games remaining and the season hanging in the balance. Absolutely no effort or fight tonight.

…the Senators could have played man down the entire game and I seriously doubt the Rangers would have scored.

…smart move sitting Zuccarello tonight. Couldn't have used him on the power play.

…i know Torts likes to show his team film, hope he forces them to watch Chris Neil causing havoc in front of the Rangers net on Benoit's power play goal.

…my ears are still ringing from the guy playing that damn horn.

…guess Richards performance against Philly was more of a mirage than him turning the corner.

…starting to rethink my stance to hold onto Gaborik. I'd take a bag of pucks for him right now. Althought I'm not sure the Rangers could even get that for him.

…what the hell happened to Stralman? He's been brutal lately, especially when the opponent is in transition.

…and don't even get me started on Hamrlik.

…didn't the Rangers bring Asham in to replace Prust's toughness? Way to spark the team tonight big guy.

…with all the head shots Lundqvist has been taking lately, the last thing I wanted to witness tonight was him constantly getting run over. I almost had a heart attack when he dove out to stop that breakaway.

…on the positive side, I really liked Kreider's game again. He was looking to shoot and even dumped a Senator player standing in Lundqvist's crease.

…Miller reminded us all tonight that he's still a rookie.

…at least the Rangers next game is in Montreal. They play well there, right?

Senators 3, Rangers 0

The New York Rangers (27-10-4) lost to the Ottawa Senators (24-15-6) by the score of 3-0, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

…as I said earlier today, I didn’t have a good feeling about this one. Ottawa has lots of team speed which seems to give the Rangers problems (see Toronto). Didn’t think the Rangers played all that bad, but Anderson was tremendous for the Senators. Not concerned, Rangers have been able to bounce back after a stinker all year, so I expect nothing but a solid effort Saturday night in Toronto.

…Hagelin-Boyle-Fedotenko was the Rangers best offensive line for he second game in a row. Probably why they only have one regulation goal combined in those games.

…with how inept the Rangers power play has been lately, it’s amazing it took this long before it burned them.

…looks like the tub did Wolski some good as he had some jump in his step tonight. Would like to see him back in the line-up Saturday whether Dubinsky comes back or not.

…Rangers could have used Avery tonight. Just sayin’.

…second straight game with zero shots on goal for AA. Add in a terrible turnover that leads to Ottawa’s first goal and you have all the makings of a benching. Wonder how Wolski would look on a line with Gabby & Stepan.

…man Boyle can’t buy a goal.

…Richards has zero points in the two games since being dumped by Olivia Munn.

…off tomorrow, then a tough road back-to-back this weekend in Toronto and Montreal.
