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.

Jagr Takes Bite Out Of Tampa
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - October 29, 2007

by Toby Ivey

Nigel Dawes got the Rangers off to the 1-0 start, but it was Jaromir Jagr, minus a couple of teeth, who took the game by the teeth and scored the game winner. Apologies for the dental puns, but the sight of a wounded Jagr laughing about having to "suffer" before succeeding, and drawing his own personal parallel, was simply too much.

The Rangers' captain seemed to be motivated by his personal pain, and ultimately finished the game as the first star. Brendan Shanahan also registered a goal and an assist, while Nigel Dawes got his third goal in the last three games to take the team lead in goals before Jagr ultimately tied him in the final period with his third of the season.

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 best line was undoubtedly the Dawes-Drury-Shanahan combination, with the two wingers in particular not shy about shooting the puck. Dawes' goal was a sweet deflection, while Shanahan earned his by driving to the net for a perfect cross ice pass from Drury.

Jaromir Jagr seemed motivated after losing a couple of teeth courtesy of a puck to the face seconds before the Rangers gave up the penalty shot to Vincent Lecavalier. Jagr came back and scored the game winner on the power play before getting the secondary assist on the insurance goal.

Scott Gomez continues to struggle to find the back of the net, missing out on an open net on the power play, and then literally missing an open net with Holmqvist pulled at the end of the game for an extra attacker. Marcel Hossa toiled away on the defensive side of the puck, but continues to be slow in the offensive zone.

The third line of Prucha, Dubinsky and Hollweg had their moments, perhaps capped by Hollweg beating the defender on the outside to get a shot on net during the second and a play later in the same period that ended up with a shot off the cross bar from Paul Mara.

The fourth line saw little action during the game, and once again was not much of a factor.

Defense
Paul Mara perhaps had his best game so far this year, featuring on the first goal with the primary assist, and hitting the cross bar in the second. Marc Staal continues to be a steady influence as well, and looks very calm with the puck and perhaps more importantly, doesn't panic when he makes a mistake, often covering up for himself when he does.

The biggest hit of the game came from Fedor Tyutin, who cleaned up Craig MacDonald with a big open ice hit in the defensive zone. On the whole Tyutin had an up and down game, but he and his partner Girardi were steady if not impressive.

Goaltending
If not for a penalty shot goal to Vincent Lecavalier, Lundqvist would've had his third shutout of the season. As it turned out Lundqvist had to work harder than you would expect for his 21 saves on 22 shots, dealing with several close in chances, particularly in the second period when Tampa attempted to build on their goal.

Special Teams
The Rangers had a perfect game in terms of special teams, going 4 for 4 on the penalty and 2 for 7 on the power play. Before the game Jagr and Shanahan talked about going to the net on the power play, and on Shanahan's goal it was particularly true with the veteran tipping home a perfect Chris Drury pass.

Not so impressive was a lengthy 5 on 3 that the Rangers failed to capitalize on during the second period. The Blueshirts got two shots off, but didn't really force Holmqvist to make a big save.

Milestones and Notes
Nigel Dawes scored his third goal of the season, and now has scored the first goal of the game on three of his four goals.

The Rangers extended their unbeaten streak when scoring a power play goal, making it a perfect four for four on the season. In fact the Rangers have scored eight power play goals against the Southeast Division teams alone, capping off three goal outputs against the Panthers and Capitals, with a two goal total tonight.

Marcel Hossa brought up his 200th shot as a Ranger since joining the tea three seasons ago.
