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.

Shanahan Works Overtime
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - December 31, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The Rangers have closed out 2007 with three straight wins and will now head out to Western Canada with some much needed confidence. Not that the result in tonight's game was ever certain. The Rangers started well and held a 2-1 advantage after one period courtesy of goals to Dan Girardi and Jaromir Jagr. Jagr's coming just 17 seconds after the Canadiens leveled the score at 1-1.

But things didn't go as planned in the second, with the home team managing to muster just a single shot on goal for the middle period, while at the same time giving up two goals in less than three minutes.

But just as they did against the Hurriances on Wednesday, the Rangers found away to respond in the third and Chris Drury's clucth goal to tie the game up set the stage for Shanahan's OT game winner.

Turning Point
After falling behind 3-2 in the second, and struggling to get anything going against a defensive minded Canadiens' team in the third, it looked as if the Rangers were going to be heading into the New Year with a loss. With so little going on, Fedor Tyutin simply skated down the boards and let loose a shot from a bad angle that the referee signalled immediately to be a goal.

On review the goal was overturned, but the Rangers suddenly seemed to have life, and it wasn't long after that they scored for certain.

Through the first twenty minutes of play, it was the Rangers' first and third lines who generated most of the Rangers' offense. The top line clicked twice for the Rangers' first two goals, and were a threat to score once more, with all three forwards getting their chances.

The Rangers' third line struggled to get shots (onlg Callahan managed to get any on net - 3 shots), but with Hossa back in the line-up, the line looked better on the cycle and was able to maintain posession of the puck in the offensive zone.

During the second period none of the Rangers forward lines could do so much as get a shot on goal, the only one coming from a Ryan Hollweg blast from about 20 feet out.

Slowly though the Rangers found their feet in the third, and it was the Shanahan line who would close things out for the Rangers. The trio were on the ice when Fedor Tyutin was awarded a goal, only to have it waved off on review. The line returned to the ice, and smart work by Chris Drury and Sean Avery tied the game up at 3-3. The line again clicked in OT, with Shanahan taking Chris Drury's pass to break in alone for the game winner.

On the blueline, Dan Girardi had another big night with the first goal of the game and a key assist on the game winner.

The Rangers' defense got off to a slow start, allowing the Canadiens to get the first four shots of the game, but it's always a good night when you can keep your opposition to one even strength goal (on a delayed penalty), and to just 21 shots for the game including over time.

Two of the Rangers' penalties were the result of partial breaks by the Canadiens (Tyutin and Malik), but the speedy Canadiens had fewer chances than you'd expect to get odd man rushes. Dan Girardi took care of another two on one, while Straka helped challenge a shorthanded 2 on 1 chance.

Of the Rangers blueliners, Paul Mara had a moderately good game as did Dan Girardi, while the rest of the Rangers defense was largely workmanlike if not spectacular.

The forwards perhaps could have backchecked a little harder, especially in the first period when things were more open, and in the second they seemed to make it more difficult for their defense by not coming down low enough to provide outlet options.

Henrik Lundqvist was solid if not spectacular tonight. While none of the three goals were easily stoppable, the Rangers' netminder would no doubt have liked a second chance at Kastsitsyn's second goal, which trickled through his five hole. The first goal of the game was a wrist shot high to Lundqvist's glove side, while the third goal was a back door one-time shot that the Swede had little to no chance of stopping.

Special Teams
Each team received just three power play opportunities on the night, but there was a clear difference between the two teams. The Canadiens came in with the league's best road power play, scoring over 26% of the time and they made little mistake in converting two of their three opportunities.

On the first play, Dan Girardi took a questionable hit behind the Rangers boards and Chris Drury got trapped with both defensemen, allowing the Canadiens to score from in front. The Rangers killed off the second power play, but when Marc Staal's clearing attempt was gloved down by Alexei Kovalev, the Canadiens ended up having an odd-man advantage on the doorstep allowing Kastsitsyn to score his second of the night.

The Canadiens' third goal was also on a delayed penalty where the Rangers failed to gain control of the puck.

The Rangers power play started off well, with their first opportunity generating several shots, but the Canadiens pressured the puck carrier and their latter two chances were not nearly so good.

Power Play: 0 for 3
Penalty Kill: 1 for 3

Injury Notes
Petr Prucha was a game time decision scratch after he told the coaching staff he couldn't go. Prucha was slashed by Nik Antropov in yesterday's win over the Maple Leafs and his left wrist was still sore today. Marcel Hossa dressed in his spot.

Milestones and Notes
Brendan Shanahan added his 641st career goal to move ahead of Dave Andreychuk for sole possession of 11th place all time on the NHL goal scorers chart. He is now 27 behind Luc Robitaille for 10th all time.

What a difference a week makes. Prior to the past three games, the Rangers were 2-6-2 in their last ten games, with tonight's win they are now 5-3-2 in their last ten.

The Rangers are just one point behind the Devils for 1st in the Atlantic, but have played one more game. They're also just two points clear of Pittsburgh (1 game in hand) and Philadelphia (2 games in hand), and have a four point cushion on the Islanders (2 games in hand)

Brendan Shanahan's OT winner was the second he's scored this year and improved the Rangers' OT record to 3-2 this season.

The one shot registered by the Rangers in the second period is their lowest shot total in a period this season.
