RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - February 10th

Bob Mackenzie was on the intermission tonight in the Bruins - Rangers game and said that there are still teams interested in Tony DeAngelo, but that maybe it'll take a little distance from his recent incident for a deal to get made.

Part of the reported hesitation has been over potential backlash from the fanbase and local media to an acquisition from prospective teams, and with time, any heat would be mitigated a little.

No doubt things will mellow a little over time, but if you're a team/GM willing to make the move, then you're probably going to have to deal with a certain level of backlash, should you make the acquisition...as well as risk

Series Is Closer Than It Appears
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 11:15:45 PM - April 18, 2011

After losing games one and two by a combined score of 4-1, you might be forgiven for thinking that this series is a little one-sided. The Capitals of course have a big advantage offensively than the Rangers, but what they showed in the first two games, was the ability to shutdown an offense as well. At least as one as weak as the Rangers.

Even after game three, you may still be forgiven for thinking that this is really just delaying the inevitable, and chances are you're right. But with that said, this is still a series that can change on a call or a bounce, and the Rangers still have a chance to pull off the upset.

This perhaps was never more clear than in the first game, when the Rangers were less than seven minutes away from taking a 1-0 series advantage on the back of Matt Gilroy's goal. A collision by Dan Girardi and Marc Staal, and an extra whack at the puck was all it took to send the game to OT. Even in OT, the Rangers had their chances, but ultimately wore down and gave up the game winner.

A shutout in game two didn't inspire much confidence in the Rangers, but a 13-7 shot advantage in the first period was what the Rangers needed to do to win the game. If not for the McDonagh penalty immediately following Chimera's goal, and the Rangers might not have quite had so much wind knocked out of their sails.

Game three was certainly no gimme, but the Rangers showed that they can find ways to score and win. It no doubt helped the team a lot to have Semin, Ovechkin and Green sitting for a good chunk as the Rangers racked up seven power plays, but two of the three Ranger goals were at even strength.

Henrik Lundqvist and the defense has played well enough in this series, whereas the offense and power play has let them down. It's been a common story much of this season, but the Rangers have shown they're capable of much more, even if they don't yet recognize it.

The key in the first period of game two, and again Sunday in game three was the Rangers bringing their physical game. In the first game of the series, the Capitals came out hitting and helped to wear the Rangers down. To start game two, it was the Rangers who hit and the offensive chances followed, it was true again yesterday when the team put up 33 shots in their best performance in the series to date.

The addition of Sean Avery has certainly helped, and one has to wonder why John Tortorella continues to treat him like a leper even when he's dressed. Avery has added a spark to this team, and has paired well with Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust to form a strong forechecking line that appears to be on the verge of contributing offensively.

For the first time Sunday I saw a classical Marian Gaborik quick release shot, something we've not seen much of this year. If the Rangers can get him going with the pairing of Prospal and Dubinsky - both of whom scored in game three - then they might finally have a chance.

As for Lundqvist, he's got to continue to hold the fort. After facing 33 shots in game one, the Rangers have limited the Caps to just 43 in the last two games. For the Rangers netminder to continue to keep playing his game through what is now going to have to be a long series, the defense has to help keep the chances to a minimum.

There's also the risk of Staal and Girardi being worn down. The pair got a moderate reprieve in game three, and also weathered far fewer hits from the Washington Capital. Both players looked stronger as a result.

While Gilroy has generated a modest amount of offensive chances, his defensive lapses may outweigh his value, and it might be worth a shot to give Steve Eminger his first start, to lend a little bit more physical presence on the blueline.

Game four at MSG remains an important one for the Rangers, and a loss would still put them on the brink. A win however would send the teams back to Washington tied and perhaps put a little more doubt back into the minds of the Capitals.
