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.

Lundqvist Recovers In Shootout With Flyers
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - November 15, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The Flyers had not lost on home ice this season, having given up just seven goals on the way towards a 6-0-0 start at the Wachovia Center. The Rangers had won eight of their last ten, and had won four straight on the Flyers' home ice. Something had to give...

After securing a 4-2 victory last night against the Devils, it's perhaps not surprising that the Rangers started the game slowly once again. What was surprising is the fashion in which they gave up the first goal, a bad angle shot that sneaked between Lundqvist's shoulder and the near post.

Lundqvist did manage to recover however, and kept the Rangers in the game long enough for them to finally figure out their game, and it was the Rangers who then took control for much of the middle portion. The Rangers would get 2-1 and then 3-2 leads, but each time allowed their opposition back into the game.

When the game went to the shootout, Henrik Lundqvist made sure there'd be no more mistakes, securing the Rangers' 11th win of the season.

Turning Point
In many ways, it was heading to the shootout that ultimately proved to be the turning point for this game. Despite outshooting their opponents, the Rangers were never able to capitalize on their chances, and allowed the Flyers the opportunity to get back in the game on two separate occasions. But with eight seconds remaining in overtime, Sean Avery elected to skate the puck back into his zone, rather than take another shot at the Flyers net.

With Henrik Lundqvist in net, who would blame him? Lundqvist made two saves, and forced another wide as he rebounded to ensure that Brendan Shanahan's shootout goal would stand as the game winner.

Offense
The Flyers played Jaromir Jagr pretty well, and the whole line struggled to get much going in the game. Aside from a slick stickhandling move by Brandon Dubinsky that split the two defenders, the line as a whole did not really threaten to score.

It was of course the Gomez line that once again produced, with the line on the ice for each of the first two Rangers goals. Brendan Shanahan continues to be on target after struggling to find the back of the net early, and he now has six goals on the season.

Most promising was the play of the Drury line, which combined for the Rangers third goal, and had other chances to convert on the night. The line as a whole has not been effective since coming together seven games ago, but with the consistency of the line, it now appears they might finally be starting to see some chemistry.

Tom Renney abandoned the idea of using Colton Orr against the speedy Flyers forwards after the heavyweight got caught on the ice for both of Philadelphia's even strength goals. Renney experimented at times with having Jagr play alongside Betts and Hollweg, and then finished regulation with Hossa replacing Jagr on that line.

Defense
Fedor Tyutin awoke from his slumber to not only score a goal, but to show more of an edge on defense. The Russian defender rocketed home a wrist shot for the Rangers' first goal of the game, and was more involved in the play in both ends than he has been for a couple of weeks.

That's not to say it was a flawless night. All six defensemen struggled with the Flyers speed, and the home team had several odd-man rushes on the night. Michal Rozsival was more prominent in his own end, and actually looked more composed than Marc Staal on several defensive plays. It's surprising to say that it was the veteran who looked better, and that that was worth mentioning, but that's how well Staal has been playing.

Jason Strudwick and Paul Mara had their moments, but Mara in particular continues to play below his salary level. While not a liability per se, Mara still has yet to make much of a positive impression.

Goaltending
There's been few nights this year when Henrik Lundqvist wasn't sharp, but two of the goals tonight are ones the Swede would no doubt like to have back. The first goal of the game came from an impossible angle with no pressure and appeared to catch Lundqvist cheating away from the goalpost.

The third of the three goals came from a scramble to his left after the Rangers had been under some sustained pressure. Lundqvist reached down to cover a puck, but rookie Dennis Tolpeko playing in just his fifth NHL game slid the puck underneath him before he could cover.

Lundqvist would not allow another goal however, and it was amusing to see Sean Avery look up at the clock at the end of overtime and elect to carry the puck into his zone with fully 8 seconds remaining. The result was the team went to the shootout where King Henrik made amends for the two goals, by stopping Danierl Briere and Scottie Upshall, and forcing Mike Richards to shoot wide.

Special Teams
The Rangers power play was once again fruitless, coming up short again at a critical juncture in the game. With 2:44 left in regulation, the Blueshirts had a chance to break a 3-3 tie, but failed to register a shot on goal, and never really threatened all night.

The Penalty Kill went 4 for 5 on the night, giving up a goal just three seconds into their third kill to allow the game to be tied 2-2.

It's fair to say the referees were not good on the night. Both teams were victims of dubious calls, with the Flyers in particular benefitting from a series of penalties late in the second period.

Milestones and Notes
The Rangers extended their winning streak to four games. It's the second time that they've reached that mark this season, in fact it would be a nine game winning streak if not for a 3-2 loss to the Islanders in the middle of the last nine games.

Scott Gomez added two assists to extend his point scoring streak to eight games as he contributed to goals by Tyutin and Shanahan.

Colton Orr became the 108th player to register 200 penalty minutes as a New York Ranger. Orr took just 87 games to reach the milestone, adding five minutes tonight in a fight with Riley Cote.

Fedor Tyutin picked up his 50th point in the NHL, scoring the Rangers first goal of the night.

After going 0-5-1 to start the season on the road, the Rangers have now won three straight away from MSG. They also have won back to back games despite not scoring first.

Brendan Shanahan scored the only goal in the shootout by either team, picking up his second shootout game winner of the season. Shanahan now has four in his career for the Rangers, breaking a three-way tie with Petr Prucha and Petr Sykora who both had three.

The win was the first time this year that the Rangers have won on the second night of back to back games. The Rangers had started the season 0-2-0.
