The New York Rangers (19-17-5) lost to the Carolina Hurricanes (11-23-7) by the score of 2-1 in overtime, today. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports and newyorkrangers.com.
...the effort has been great the last two games, but this team needs to start scoring. I don't want to hear about how many posts they hit, if the puck doesn't go in it doesn't matter. The schedule picks up a notch in January and the Rangers one or two goals a game isn't going to get the job done.
...and as usual the #1 culprit is Higgins. I'm not sure Torts can keep this guy in the line-up anymore. Avery isn't that far behind.
...who pissed in Del Zotto's lemonade before the game?
...Eric Staal really brings out the best in Marc. The middle Staal was fabulous during the home and home.
...not sure if the pressure to make the Olympic team was getting to Drury but a day after being named to Team USA he played one of his better games of the season.
...c'mon Torts only two minutes for Voros. Besides Avery he is the only potential momentum changer the Rangers have. Give him some more minutes and see if he can't spark the team.
...Dubinsky looks pretty comfortable on the wing.
...off tomorrow then the Winter Classic winning Bruins in town on Monday.
