The New York Rangers (1-2-1) lost to the Colorado Avalanche (4-2-0) by the score of 3-1, tonight. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports and newyorkrangers.com.
...like I said the other day, things are going to get worse before they get better. In a game where you were looking for someone to step up in the absence of the Rangers best player and their captain, no one did.
...i was at the game and was thoroughly bored. I actually wasn't paying attention during large chunks of the game.
...the only positive I saw tonight was Del Zotto jumping Galiardi after he boarded Girardi. Don't remember the last time I saw a Ranger stick up for a teammate.
...the Rangers are now 2-17 on the power play to start the season. When did they re-hire Perry Pearn?
...best part of the night was getting to meet numerous TheNYRBlog readers. I really appreciated all the kind words.
...worst part of the night was passing out on the train and missing my stop on the way home. They need alarm clocks on the LIRR.
...why is Boogaard even in the lineup at this point? $1.6 million per for 2 minutes a game? Sending Kennedy down could be the worst move of the preseason.
...it's funny how Torts' camp is always so tough, meanwhile the Rangers seem to be outworked and outskated every game.
...Messier's faceoff practices continue to be no help as they were again below .500 (40% to be exact).
...not that anyone is looking forward to it but the Rangers next game is Thursday night in Toronto.
