RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 2nd

Frank Seravalli The Daily Faceoff put together a list of the top 15 trade targets as we close out the second month. Amongst the list is former Ranger J.T. Miller, whom is among several Canucks players that might become available given their start to the season.

There's a lot working against this one though, especially with the Rangers now talking to Strome about an extension. While Miller can also play wing as well as center, the challenge will likely be trying to fit the $5.25M salary into the roster for next year, not to mention what they would do after next season when he becomes a UFA.

The 28 year old forward (29 in March), certainly has done well in Vancouver, putting up nearly a point a game (141 points in 146 games), and could well want out if the Canucks decide to rebuild. Alternatively, the Canucks might want to keep much of their current team, and certainly someone who has been such a good fit there.

Igor Shesterkin stole his third victory of the season


Igor Answers The Bell
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 1:51:50 PM - November 9, 2021

Cruising at 4-1 with less than two minutes remaining, it looked like the Rangers would cruise to a victory against the league's lone remaining team without a regulation loss.  Not that much comes easy for this team, as they ended up giving up two more goals, and were forced to cling to a 4-3 victory.

Igor Shesterkin's body language after the game wasn't one of elation or celebration, but rather one of frustrationa at what had transpired in a mad scramble last 90 seconds.  Normally a win over the streaking Panthers would have been cause to be positive, but the Rangers once again posed more questions than they answered.

Twenty Thoughts:

  1. The Rangers have now been outshot in 10 of their 13 games this season, their -8.2 average shot differential is the worst in the league

  2. ROARING FORTIES: Shesterkin has now won all eight games in which he's faced 40+ shots.  Last night he made 42 saves on 45 shots, both season highs, and became just the fourth NHL netminder since they started keeping the statistic in 1955-56, to win his first four starts in which he faced 40+ shots.  It was the third stolen win of the season

  3. Adam Fox scored his second career short handed goal.  He's now tied with 37 other players for 73rd all time on the Rangers in that category

  4. The goal was the 13th point of the year for Fox, who is now tied for the Rangers lead with Artemi Panarin, who picked up two points last night

  5. Mika Zibanejad did the work to setup the goal initially, and picked up an assist that was the 6th since joining the Rangers, tying him with eleven other players for 20th all time.  It was also his 13th shorthanded point as a Ranger, which ties him with four others for 10th all time.  The other four players with 13 shorthanded point in New York include: Neil Colville, Kevin Hayes, Petr Nedved and Phil Watson.  Finally, it was the 295th point as a Ranger for Zibanejad, who tied original Ranger Bun Cook and Dave Maloney for 43rd all time

  6. The primary assist on the shorthander went to Barclay Goodrow, and was the first short handed assist and point as a Ranger.  Goodrow now has six points since joining New York.  He has a career high of 18 points set in 2019-20 when he split time between the Sharks and Lightning

  7. WAITING FOR GODOT: It looked like Kaapo Kakko had picked up his first point of the season, feeding Artemi Panarin for an open net goal.  Turned out the open net was helped along by Ryan Strome in the crease and the goal was waved off.  Kakko also had a deflection and then the rebound shot denied in the third period

  8. Julien Gauthier was back in the line-up, on the third line in the absence of the injured Filip Chytil.  He did get a breakaway, and he again failed to beat the netminder, this time through the five hole

  9. MILLER TIME!: K'Andre Miller scored his first goal of the season, going the length of the ice before roofing the puck over Spencer Knight for what was a great individual effort.  Perhaps he could give Gauthier some pointers

  10. Kreider scored his team leading ninth goal, again on the PP, putting home a loose puck in front.  Kreider now has six on the Power Play, which puts him two ahead of everyone else in the league.  It also was the 186th goal of his career, tying him with Dean Prentice for 14th all time.  He also picked up an assist on Miller's goal, which was his 172nd, to tie Edgar Laprade for 50th all time

  11. DIVISIONAL RIVALRY: The Rangers now have 17 points in 13 games, good enough for second in the Metropolitan.  When you ratio it to points per game, they drop down to fifth in the Metropolitan, though they remain 10th in the league

  12. Not one of the Rangers goals was scored 5v5, instead they had a power play goal, a shorthanded goal and two while 4v4

  13. The second of those two 4v4 goals went to Ryan Strome, his second goal of the season and 52nd as a Ranger.  Both of his goals this year have been game winners, although this one ended up being so courtesy of two late goals to Florida

  14. Panarin took his Ranger assist total to 115 - tying Marian Gaborik for 81st all time, and his point total to 166 which passed Mike Allison and tied Danny Liewicki for 97th all time

  15. The Rangers had lost the previous two games against the Panthers, back in 2019, losing 6-5 in a shootout and then 4-3 in regulation six days later.  It's now been four straight games that the Rangers have given up 3+ goals to the Panther

  16. WHAT ABOUT BOB?: The Rangers caught a break in some sense, getting Spencer Knight in net.  The Panthers have split the goaltending evenly between their two netminders, with Sergei Bobrovsky having played just 40 minutes more on the season.  The difference in performance though has been noticeable with Bobrovsky sporting a .948 save percentage and 1.72 goals against average.  Knight by contrast, came into last night's game with .918 and 2.52...needless to say both are worse today

  17. It'll be a season high five days before the Rangers next play, heading back on the road to Columbus for a rematch with a team that has certainly exceeded expectations with a 7-3-0 record in their first ten.  The Rangers had perhaps their best game of the year against Columbus in October, winning 4-0

  18. That game marks the start of a stretch of ten games against Eastern Conference teams, including five against Metropolitan Division rivals

  19. THREESOMES: Last night marked the 3rd straight game the Rangers have given up 3 goals in the 3rd period.  They're 1-1-1 in that stretch.  They also gave up two in the preceding game to the Canucks. Prior to those 11 goals, the Rangers have given up 7 third period goals in their previous 9 games.  They now are tied for worst in the league with 18 goals allowed in the third period

  20. The win last night was their first in the month of November.  They are now 1-1-2 on the month, after starting the year 6-2-1 in October
