Previous Polls

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

Igor Shesterkin 2/24
Suffered a rib fracture in car accident Sunday night, and will be reevaluated in two weeks.
Tony DeAngelo 2/19

Just A Minute
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - October 14, 2007

Despite being outshout by a two to one ratio and trailing on the power play count, the Rangers appeared to be hanging in with the form team in the Eastern Conference. Within a minute, fifty two second to be precise, the home team once again unraveled on the way to their second loss to the Senators in a week.

The Rangers now head out on the road for a three game stint, after starting 0-2-0 away from MSG.

Turning Point
With the Senators on the power play, Jason Spezza lifted Marek Malik's stick to beat the Blueshirt defender to a puck and sent a pass to a wide open Dany Heatley on the back doorstep. The goal put the Senators up 1-0, and two more goals in quick succession were both the results of Rangers defensive breakdowns.

A day after the Ranger offense dominated the Washington Capitals, they once again fell into bad habits that lead to penalties and little sustained offensive pressure. It's fair to say that the Senators defense certainly contributed to the lack of continuity, but that was certainly not the whole story.

The top line of Jagr, Drury and Hossa was largely ineffective on the evening. On a couple of occasions through the first two periods, the line did manage to generate chances, and late in the third they broke the shutout with what can be best described as a garbage goal. By that time, Chris Drury had been replaced by Scott Gomez on the line, and had seen Petr Prucha skate a couple of shifts in place of Marcel Hossa.

Brendan Shanahan unleashed 13 shots on goal, and saw two premium chances stopped by the acrobatics of Martin Gerber in the third. Shanahan continues to struggle to find the back of the net, and continues to take interference related penalties while the Rangers are on the man advantage. The second line as a whole probably generated the better of the Rangers scoring chances over the night, but struggled again to find the back of the net.

The Rangers third and fourth lines saw limited time during the game and were largely unnoticed in the offensive end of the ice. Brandon Dubinsky was the lone bright-spot, with his best game this year which earned him some time on the third line and on the PP during the game.

Marek Malik and Michal Rozsival were on for two of the three goals against, with Malik involved directly in two of the plays that lead to the scoring chances. Malik had a tough night with the Senators' speed and was even seen skating back slowly on a two on one ultimately broken up by his partner.

The other two pairs had little bearing on the game either in a positive or negative manner. The Senators' second goal may have deflected off of one of either Staal or Mara on it's way to the net.

As a team, the Rangers defense was generally adequate except for the one minute in which they gave up the goals. The forwards continued to help out on the backcheck, which is one of the few positives that can be taken from the game.

Lundqvist was a big contributor in the first half of the game in keeping the Rangers in the game. Of the three goals, the second and third perhaps were perhaps ones that Lundqvist would like to have had another chance on, but neither were what you would term soft goals.

By contrast, the third year pro stopped the Senators on several deflections and difficult shots that might have gone in if he was not up on his game.

Special Teams
The Rangers had their opportunities on the power play, including a lengthy two-man advantage in the third period, but once again were unable to break through. The power play got better as the game went on, but so did the goaltending of Gerber who made perhaps his best save of the night stopping Brendan Shanahan on a shot during the 5 on 3.

Jaromir Jagr registered his 1st goal of the season, and his 100th as a Ranger (the 52nd Ranger to do so). He was also playing in his 200th game for New York, the 143rd player to do so.

Scott Gomez was credited with an assist on the Jagr goal late in the third, his first as a Ranger. Hossa also assisted on the goal, and now has a point in each of his three games this year.

The Rangers broke a string of seven periods without a goal against the Senators.

Starting Lines
Hossa - Drury - Jagr
Straka - Gomez - Shanahan
Prucha - Betts - Callahan
Orr - Dubinsky - Hollweg
