RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - February 10th

Bob Mackenzie was on the intermission tonight in the Bruins - Rangers game and said that there are still teams interested in Tony DeAngelo, but that maybe it'll take a little distance from his recent incident for a deal to get made.

Part of the reported hesitation has been over potential backlash from the fanbase and local media to an acquisition from prospective teams, and with time, any heat would be mitigated a little.

No doubt things will mellow a little over time, but if you're a team/GM willing to make the move, then you're probably going to have to deal with a certain level of backlash, should you make the acquisition...as well as risk

Rangers Continue To Bedevil New Jersey
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - December 9, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The Devils came to MSG riding a nine game winning streak, the Rangers by contrast were coming off three straight defeats, including perhaps their two worst performances of the season against the Hurricanes (0-4) and Maple Leafs (2-6). Henrik Lundqvist, who had been pulled in his last start, and sat against the Thrashers, made an emphatic return to the line-up, and stopped all 17 shots thrown his way.

But while Lundqvist was keeping the Rangers in a "scary game" (his words), it was up to the veteran Brendan Shanahan to convert a play in overtime which saw all four players on the ice touch the puck on the way to the game winning goal.

Turning Point
Ten seconds into the game, and a Rangers turnover, coupled with blown coverage allowed the Devils to shoot from deep in the slot with no one within cooee of the shooter. Lundqvist made the stop, preventing the Rangers for going down early in the game.

Offense
The question on everyone's minds is when will Jaromir Jagr break out of his funk? Well in part his game did improve tonight, and on more than one occasion he elected to shoot the puck quickly without thinking to much about his play. Brandon Dubinsky is not showing the same confidence he did earlier in the season, and one wonders whether he might be still thinking about the Carolina game when he directly contributed to or was on the ice for all four goals against. The third player on the line, Martin Straka continues to battle, but it's clear that Jagr and Dubinsky need to get pucks on the net if Straka is to get his scoring going.

The Hossa-Gomez-Shanahan line, arguably had the best chances for the Rangers during the game, and it was the Gomez-Shanahan pairing that scored the game winner in OT. Shanahan continues to shoot the puck, and Gomez's confidence with the puck continues to be there...though some might question his decisions sometimes when he tries to beat multiple defenders by himself. Even Marcel Hossa appears to have more energy and is starting to shoot the puck more quickly than he has previous this season.

The third line was probably the Rangers hardest working line on the night, with Prucha, Callahan and Durry often beating their opponents to loose pucks, or forcing the play. Petr Prucha had an impressive scoring chance in the second period spinning around and chopping the puck on the net, only to see Martin Brodeur rob him with the glove.

The fourth line saw most of their action against the Devils fourth line and seldom gave up shots let alone scoring chances in their limited ice time.

Defense
Dan Girardi's game appears to have plateaued on the defensive side, though he continues to find himself in offensive positions, including a solid post tonight down low on a 4 on 4. Fedor Tyutin however appears to be stepping up his game, though his turnover in the first period to John Madden was anything but perfection.

Michal Rozsival appears to be more comfortable playing now with Marc Staal than he did with veteran Marek Malik. The pending free agent has put up some solid performances as Staal's partner, while the rookie continues to do well despite a few mistakes here and there.

The Mara - Strudwick pairing was solid if not spectacular, with Paul Mara continuing to have difficulty getting his shots on net. With Marek Malik a healthy scratch, the d-men are all under pressure to perform.

The forwards did for the most part a credible job coming back to clog up the middle. They were certainly not as effective as they have been in some games this year, but the Devils seemed unlikely to penetrate the defense as a whole, registering just 17 shots in 60:30 of game time.

Goaltending
After two substandard performances, and a effort against the Maple Leafs that saw the young Swede get yanked after letting in four goals on ten shots, Lundqvist returned to his season form. The third year goalie got quickly into the action, stopping a point blank chance just ten seconds into the game, and dealing with three or four other major scoring opportunities.

Lundqvist's stop of John Madden on the breakaway was a confidence builder for a team that has struggled in recent games in their own end.

Special Teams
The Rangers power play continues to struggle, and in a game where they needed to score, they came up short once again. The Jagr unit continues to struggle to develop shots, let alone scoring chances, while the Gomez unit fared a little better, but is often second choice to start the man advantage.

The penalty kill had little to deal with tonight, and made sure the Devils wouldn't profit from the Rangers' indiscretions. The PK was highlighted by shifts by Martin Straka, who bravely blocked two shots after breaking his stick, and an extended Brendan Shanahan shift which saw the veteran forward cover for Chris Drury who had broken his stick on the faceoff.

Milestones and Notes
Henrik Lundqvist played in his 150th NHL game and registered his 12th shutout of his career and 5th of the season. The shutout breaks a tie with Andy Aitkenhead for 10th all time amongst Rangers goalies. He's just one behind 9th placed Gilles Villemure's total of 13.

His 5th shutout of the season equals his career high set last season, and he is one away from becoming the first Ranger goalie to record six in a season since Eddie Giacomin got 8 back in the 1970-71 season.

In was the first time that the Devils and Rangers had failed to at least score one goal in regulation in 25 years of matchups between the two teams. The Rangers have now won four games against the Devils this season, which is the most in a season since the 1993-94 season when they were a perfect 6-0 against their rivals.

Brendan Shanahan scored his first Overtime Goal as a Ranger, and becomes just the fourth player on the current roster to have an OT goal. The other three are Jaromir Jagr (3), Martin Straka (1) and Jason Strudwick, who registered his OT goal earlier in the season.

Injury Notes
Sean Avery is hoping to come back sooner than expected from hand surgery, and is expected to start skating again this week.
