RUMOR MILL

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.

Dawes Bedevils New Jersey
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - October 26, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The Rangers came into last night's game looking to break a 126 minute scoreless streak and take two valuable points away from their dvision rivals. At the end of the game, you could have perhaps been forgiven for thinking that the teams had switched jerseys, with the Rangers coming out on the back of team defensive effort that earned them a 2-0 victory.

Nigel Dawes made short work of the shutout streak, depositing a wrist shot into the back of the net just 57 seconds into the game and then securing the victory late in the third on the power play.

Turning Point
57 seconds into the first period Nigel Dawes rifled a shot past Martin Brodeur to break a shutout streak that extended back to the 59th minute of the game against Atlanta. The Rangers never really looked back once they had the lead, and looked confident despite the 1-0 lead.

Offense
The top line of Hossa-Gomez-Jagr continued to play together last night, and once again neither Gomez nor Jagr really threatened to score at any point in the game. The best chances came on the man advantage, but they will need to pick up their games if the Rangers have any hope going forward. Marcel Hossa had a more active game with several plays on the defensive end and a number of shots on goal, though none particularly troubling to Brodeur.

Nigel Dawes joined Shanahan and Drury on the second line, and the move paid dividends on the first shift of the game. Dawes continues to be the Ranger who looks the most threatening offensively, and his two goals were just reward for his play that extends back to his call-up. Brendan Shanahan picked up an assist on the first goal, and continues to fire shots at the net Chris Drury for his part continues to play at a high level and was close to scoring on two occasions, including a second rebound shot that Brodeur snagged out of the air.

In the initial going, it appeared that Ryan Hollweg was happy to get a chance to play on the Rangers' third line, skating all over the ice to challenge the Devils physically. He slowed down as the game went on however. Petr Prucha and Brandon Dubinsky combined with Dawes for the second goal, with Dubinsky retrieving the puck which Prucha ultimately fed to Dawes for the shot. Aside from that play, Prucha was largely quiet in the game, though Dubinsky again showed offensive presence on a couple of shifts.

Jason Strudwick joined Blair Betts and Colton Orr on the fourth line for what turned out to be a relatively quiet night. Renney used the fourth line a little more, including late in the third with a 1-0 lead and the unit got the job done for the most part.

Defense
As a six man unit, the defense were hardly challenged all night, and were well supported by the backchecking forwards on most occasions. The Girardi-Tyutin pairing once again lead the way for the Rangers, while Rozsival and Malik were steady as per Paul Mara and Marc Staal.

Goaltending
Lundqvist picked up his second shutout of the year, and now has allowed just one goal in his last three games. He faced just 22 shots on the night, and was once again largely untested.

Special Teams
The one goal of the game was a power play goal to the Penguins, and it was a beautiful pass and quick finish by Evgeni Malkin that gave the PKers little chance to stop it. Overall the penalty kill was once again a strength for the Rangers, but unfortunately they really needed to be perfect on the night.

The power play continued to struggle, and the experiment with loading all the topline players onto the first unit appears to be continuing. By contrast the second unit was really just a collection of whomever was left over.

Milestones and Notes
Nigel Dawes scored his first, and second goals of the season in the process registering his first career power play and game winning goals. Brandon Dubinsky picked up his first career point, an assist on Dubinsky's second goal.

Dawes' power play marker, was the third game in which the Rangers have registered a power play goal so far this season. The previous two times the Rangers registered three power play goals against Atlanta and Washington.

Henrik Lundqvist registered his second shutout of the season, and his first against the Devils. It was the first time that the Rangers had shut the Devils out since January 12th, 1997.

The Rangers are now 3-1-0 at MSG and have a 3-0-0 record when scoring the first goal of the game.
