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.

Brandon Dubinsky gave the Rangers life with his game winner

Back In A New York Minute!
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 10:41:34 PM - April 17, 2011

The Rangers - Capitals playoff season is still alive today, after a spirited 3-2 win by the Blueshirts. Brandon Dubinsky's goal with under two minutes remaining in regulation proved to be the game winner, and the Rangers will head into Wednesday night's Game 4 at the Garden looking to even the series at 2-2.

It was an emotional game for fans and players alike. The roller coaster started on a high, with the Rangers picking up their first power play goal of the series, and the first playoff goal for Erik Christensen in fifteen playoff appearances - with the Penguins, Ducks and Rangers.

Then the Rangers hit a bump. With one minute remaining in the second period, Alexander Ovechkin deflected a Jason Arnott shot from the point into the net to tie the game at 1-1. The Rangers appeared to then go ahead 2-1 with time expiring at the end of the period, but a review by the officials in Toronto waved it off when it appeared time expired one tenth of a second before the puck crossed the line.

Vinny Prospal then tallied his first playoff goal since 2008 when he was with the Flyers, slotting home a loose puck off a rebound in front. The Rangers looked finally to be breaking the shackles and taking the game to the Capitals for the first time in the series.

Then with less than seven minutes in regulation remaining, Marian Gaborik went to the box for cross checking Nicklas Backstrom, setting up Mike Knuble's power play tally to tie the game at 2-2.

It was the second in the series that the Rangers had coughed up a lead with less than ten minutes to go, and it appeared for all intents and purposes that the outcome would be the same this time around.

With the clock winding down, Dubinsky worked off the back boards, drove to the net and got a looping shot that deflected up and in off of defenseman Karl Alzner and put the Rangers back in front for good.

The Capitals pulled Michael Neuvirth for an extra attacker with around a minute to go, but the Rangers had few troubles killing off the remainder of regulation time and came away with their first win in the series.

In goal, Henrik Lundqvist came up with a couple of big saves during the game but saw fewer quality chances than in the first two games. Ruslan Fedotenko helped on a late 2 on 1, skating back hard to deflect the pass towards Lundqvist for the easy stop.

The Rangers best line for much of the game was the trio of Sean Avery, Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust. Though they didn't score a goal, the line generated plenty of chances and was paced by Boyle's team high nine shots on goal.

John Tortorella moved Marian Gaborik to a line with Dubinsky and Fedotenko - later replacing Fedotenko with Prospal - and the result was still yet more chances, but with the same fruitless result. Gaborik continues to do plenty of things right, but is still slow to release a shot and appears to lack confidence.

Defensively, Marc Staal and Dan Girardi didn't have to play quite as many minutes, thanks in large part to seven power plays for the Rangers. This allowed Tortorella to work in more time for Bryan McCabe.
