The New York Rangers (17-8-2) lost to the Florida Panthers (9-11-3) by the score of 4-0 today. For a recap and box score go to newyorkrangers.com.
...the blame for the loss goes squarely on my shoulders as the Rangers worst performance of the year, of course, comes in the first game I attend this season.
...now to the game. After not being able to cash in on some early opportunities (yeah I'm talking to you Dubinsky) or bang home any rebounds it seemed like they just gave up. That's not the way a first place team should be reacting to adversity. Especially against a basement dweller like the Panthers.
...after two straight games of solid play Rozsival came crashing down to earth today. Not sure the booing by the home crowd is helping either.
...is there anyway someone can tell Redden the Rangers brought him in here to add offense to the blueline. He's now gone 24 straight games without a goal. His last goal was during the home opener.
...0-5 on the power play for the second straight game including one of the worst 5 on 3s I've ever witnessed. And some how Perry Pearn still has a job tonight.
...no need dwelling on this one, Renney should just throw out the film and focus on our next two games against the Penguins and Canadiens because if we show this same effort against those two teams it could get real ugly.
