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.

When will they sit Henrik Lundqvist? Perhaps tomorrow night against the Islanders, but boy it's tough to sit a guy who now has allowed just two goals in the last 245 minutes of play, and pitched two shutouts.

For the fourth time this year, Lundqvist kept the opposition off the board, stopping all thirty shots he faced to cap off a six game home stand that saw the Rangers go 5-1-0.

Jaromir Jagr was the offensive story, picking up the game winner and the primary assist on Brendan Shanahan's insurance goal in the third. His tally in the first, was a thing of beauty. The captain flying down the left hand side of the ice and scoring a roof shot off the rush, a relative rarity in his now 102 goals as a Ranger.

Even with a 1-0 lead going into the third, and the Flyers pressing, the Rangers did not let up. Of the Flyers' 30 shots, only five were registered in the final twenty minutes...and the home team had it relatively easy with three penalties called on Philadelphia in the final minutes of the game.

Offense
Tom Renney went with the same lines as he did against the Devils, and the chemistry appeared to continue to flow, though not enough apparently to score at full strenghth. The two goals came from a 4 on 4 and a power play, neither of which featured the regular lines.

The Jagr line had a handful of scoring chances, but was probably just as noticed for keeping the puck in the Flyers zone for good shift. In acutality, the Rangers did a pretty good job with the forecheck and controlling puck in the offensive zone. The Flyers got most of their chances on the rush, but did not have a lot of sustained pressure outside a few minutes early in the third.

Brandon Dubinsky once again threatened to score, and had a sweet series of stickhandling moves leading up to his only shot on goal, while Marcel Hossa's biggest contributions continue to be on the defensive side of the puck...including a big hit on Flyer d-man Kimmo Timonen as he pursued a loose puck in the neutral zone.

The Drury, Shanahan, Dawes line had another quiet performance, and Chris Drury in particular appeared to be struggling with the puck all night. Drury perhaps had the best chance of the night that didn't go in, redirecting a cross ice pass into Martin Biron, but that was about if for the veteran center.

Nigel Dawes appears to have quieted down after a promising start, and he will need to pick it up again if he hopes to hold his space once players start coming back from injury.

Sean Avery, playing just his second game, got into the swing of things early, taking on Mike Richards in a bout that didn't so much end in a decision as take out one of the hottest Flyers and get Avery's game going. The recently returned agitator looked much more comfortable tonight, and once again it was that he (along with Scott Gomez and Petr Prucha) that looked the most dangerous.

The fourth line also got in a few good shifts and they appear to have steadied themselves in recent games, after perhaps not performing as well earlier in the year.

Defense
Marc Staal continues to quickly grow into his position, and remains the only defenseman who really seems comfortable with the puck at all times. Staal continues to be able to beat opposing players while carrying the puck, and has settled in pretty nicely with Michal Rozsival as a pair. His ability to knock the puck away with his stick has made up more than once for a defensive mistake, but perhaps the most noticeable aspect of his game, his in unwillingness to give up on a play.

Dan Girardi bounced back from a couple of average games with some key plays once again, and even picked up an assist on the first goal. Fedor Tyutin also scored an assist, keeping the puck in smartly on the power play and feeding Jaromir Jagr. Tyutin perhaps still could tighten up his positioning a little, but with Girardi back there and then Lundqvist in net, it hasn't yet been a problem.

The third pair of Paul Mara and Jason Strudwick combined for five shots on goal and a fight. Mara had four of the shots (and three wide), as he continues to take more of a role in the offense. Strudwick added a shot, but also took on Riley Cote in the first period, after he took the young Flyer to task after play blew dead in front of the Rangers goal.

As a whole the Rangers started a little slow, but gave the Flyers few second chances. A lull to start the third, was overcome after about five minutes, and the Rangers really didn't give the Flyers another look for the rest of the game.

Goaltending
It's getting difficult to come up with new words to describe the performance of Henrik Lundqvist. The third year man stopped all thirty shots he faced, including perhaps five or six quality chances during the game.

The most memorable stop was a short handed chance by Scottie Upshall breakaway, but the Swede got just enough on it as Upshall tried to shoot it against the grain.

Special Teams
The man advantage finished 1 for 7 on the night courtesy of Brendan Shanahan's late third period goal. The Rangers were given a two minute five on three in the final three minutes, but appeared to be content to play things safe rather than add to their lead.

With only three penalties against, the penalty kill had little to deal with, but they did the job all the same. The Flyers never really got a chance on the power play, and the PK unit drew a penalty late in the first that ultimately allowed Jagr to score 4 on 4.

Milestones and Notes
The Rangers have now allowed the fewest goals in their first fourteen games, since they won the cup in the 1939-40 season when they gave up just 22 goals. That year they went on to win the Stanley Cup.

The Rangers' 4th shutout of the season in game #14 is the earliest they've reached that milestone since the 1937-38 season when they shutout the opposition five times in the same fourteen games.

Dan Girardi registered his first assist of the season, and second point of the year. Scott Gomez registed a point in his third straight game, Tyutin now has assists in the past two games.

Lundqvist is now tied with Andy Aitkenhead for 10th overall with his 10th shutout as a Ranger.

Greg Moore was called up in case Jagr couldn't go, but did not dress.

Injury Update
Jaromir Jagr played despite being a game time decision with a groin strain. Jagr did not finish the second period as he sought medical attention, but he returned for the final twenty minutes.
