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.

Road Worriers
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - November 7, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The Rangers' road woes continued on the Island last night. The third game in four nights perhaps had something to do with the result, but a minor collapse in the third period saw the Rangers turn a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 loss.

Whether it was tiredness, or simply troubles with playing on the road, it's clear the Rangers still have work to do on their offense and that two goals a game will not always be enough.

Turning Point
With the Rangers leading 2-1 in the third, Petr Prucha drew a power play, only to retaliate in the ensuing scrum and make it a four on four. Soon after Mike Comrie sold a high stick by Dan Girardi that looked like it may not have connected. Michael Bergeron scored on the 4 on 3 power play, and the game was tied at 2-2 with the Islanders gaining the momentum.

Offense
Tom Renney continued with the same lines that he's been using of late, but the Rangers seemed to struggle through the first period, putting just four shots on goal.

Chris Drury finally got the team on the board in the second on the power play, and looked like one of the more dangerous players for the Rangers, particularly on the man advantage, but was not well supported by his line-mates Nigel Dawes and Brendan Shanahan, who continue to be quiet.

Jaromir Jagr backed up after being questionable before Monday's win over Philadelphia, but looked a little slow at times. Brandon Dubinsky registered his usual scoring chance, but remains without a goal now 20 games into his NHL career. Marcel Hossa is also still looking for his first goal of the season, but didn't look like he was going to break that streak.

On the third line Sean Avery was a key contributor to the game's result, but not in a positive way. Avery's confidence with the puck, particularly in his own zone, was not matched by his ability to avoid turnovers, and it was a third period turnover that ultimately cost the Rangers the game.

The fourth line saw plenty of ice time with this, the third game in four nights, and they made sure they kept the opposition off the board.

Defense
Dan Girardi turned out to have a tough night for the Rangers, turning the puck over for the Isles first goal, taking a penalty that lead to the second goal and being on the ice for the final goal as well. At the other end of the spectrum, Paul Mara got his offense going with a goal and an assist on the night.

The defense as a whole gave up far too many offensive chances on the night, and showed difficulty dealing with the Islanders when they rushed the puck. On several occasions, the Rangers had to rely on Lundqvist to bail out their defense.

Goaltending
It was the first time that Lundqvist had given up more than two goals since the Maple Leafs got three past him five games ago. With that said, it's hard to fault him on any of the goals...all three were near unstoppable shots, with two going high over his shoulder, and Bergeron's power play goal coming on a back-door one time shot.

Special Teams
The visiting Blueshirts started the game well, scoring on their first power play opportunity and looking dangerous on their other two opportunities with the man advantage.

The penalty kill finally gave up a goal, albeit on a 4 on 3 midway through the third period. It's hard to fault the team with just three defenders, but the goal proved to be a turning point in the game.

Both teams finished 1 for 3 on the power play at the end of the night.

Milestones and Notes
The Rangers continued their struggles on the road this year, and are now 0-5-1 on the road, their worst start away from MSG since they went 0-2-3 in the 1998-99 season.

For the fourth time in a row, the Rangers scored just two goals in the game. They've now scored 2 or fewer goals in 11 of the 15 games played this year, and only once have they scored more than two on the road.

Gomez now has a four game point scoring streak. Jagr has points in two straight games.

The loss marked the first time this season that the team has given up a third period lead, and just the second time they've lost a game with having any sort of lead during the game.
