RUMOR MILL

Wednesday - June 26th

Elliot Friedmman of Sportsnet, reports that the Avalanche weren't willing to include the 16th overall pick to the Rangers in exchange for Chris Kreider.

Wonder who else wasn't willing to include a first rounder for him. Part of the problem of course is his UFA status next year, and then the expansion draft after that.

A turnover by Marc Staal in Overtime lead to the game winner

Not Working Overtime
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 10:36:20 PM - April 13, 2011

The Rangers competed, but ultimately fell short in their Game 1 matchup with the Capitals, dropping a 2-1 decision with less than two minutes to go in the first overtime period.

It was a frustrating way to lose in a game that was there for the Rangers' taking late in the third period when they held a 1-0 lead on the back of Matt Gilroy's first career playoff goal.

The Rangers got off to a solid start in the game, getting much of the early puck possession and taking advantage of a seemingly nervous Capitals team. The Caps had lost their first round match-up to the eighth seeded Montreal Canadiens last year, and perhaps were a little overly respectful to begin the game.

A couple of penalties to Mats Zuccarello, including a too many men call where he failed to come off the ice gave the Capitals a chance to settle their nerves and get into the game. Neither side were willing to open up the game, and when Washington did manage to get chances, Henrik Lundqvist was there to stop them.

At the other end of the ice, rookie playoff goaltender Michael Neuvirth saw few challenging shots and was well positioned to make the first save on almost every occasion.

It wasn't until the start of the third period that either team managed to break the 0-0 deadlock. An aggressive forecheck by Brandon Prust forced a turnover to Wojtek Wolski behind the Washington net, who in turn picked up a pinching Gilroy for the first goal of the game.

With under seven minutes remaining, the Rangers appeared to have a good chance at closing the game out, but it wasn't to be.

A moderate collision between Dan Girardi and Marc Staal in the neutral zone, helped Alexander Ovechkin and Semin get in behind the Rangers defense. Semin's shot was trapped by Lundqvist against the post, but the Blueshirts couldn't prevent Ovechkin from pushing the puck and Lundqvist into the net. The play was reviewed - to see if the net came off the moorings - but ultimately it was ruled a goal.

While the Rangers had a handful of chances to regain the lead, it was the Capitals who would ultimately take advantage of a tiring Rangers unit.

With his forwards giving him few passing options, the blueshirt blueliner attempted to lift the puck out of the zone, only to see it kept in by Jason Arnott, who spotted a wide open Semin in the slot. The talented Russian then shot across the grain and beat Lundqvist for the game winner.

The Rangers and Capitals will meet again Friday in Game 2, and the Rangers will certainly have to be concerned about their ability to generate offense.
