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.

Ryan Lindgren scores with 0.7 seconds remaining


Give Me A Second
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 1:58:42 PM - November 22, 2021

The first match up of the season between the Rangers and Sabres had plenty of drama, including the finish.  The two teams combined for nine goals in the game, with four of them coming in a 1:22 span during the second period that saw the lead change twice, as both teams added two goals to take the score to 4-4.

As remarkable as that period of the game was, it would be the finish that would put a seal on the Rangers' 11th win of the year.  Having switched in Igor Shesterkin for the final twenty minutes, the Rangers kept their opponents to just 4 shots in the period, but were unable to get a fifth puck past Sabres netminder Aaron Dell.

With time winding down, Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad trapped the puck against the back boards, and the game seemingly was heading to overtime.  As it happens, the extra time would not be needed, with the puck coming loose with less than 5 seconds remaining and finding it's way out to Mika Zibanejad to setup a pinching Ryan Lindgren for the game winning goal.

Twenty thoughts:

  1. Kaapo Kakko took his first penalty of the season not far outside the Rangers crease, called for holding with less than five minutes to go in the first.  The Sabres, on their second power play of the night, scored off the stick of Rasmus Asplund, who found a loose puck just outside the blue paint, and batted it home

  2. It was the 9th time the Rangers have given up the first goal of the game, and they are now 4-4-1 on the season in games where they trail first.  They're 7-0-2 when the score first

  3. In the final minute of the first, Sabres defenseman Jacob Bryson stuck his rear out to impede Filip Chytil as the puck went behind the Buffalo net, Chytil went to the ice, and the Rangers got their frist power play of the game. Despite having just 49 seconds remaining in the period, Chris Kreider made it count, getting his 13th of the season, and 8th on the power play.  He currently ranks 4th overall and 2nd overall in the NHL in each of those respective categories

  4. The power play tally by Kreider, was his 362nd point overall, tying him with Bill Fairbairn for 23rd all time.  Additionally, it was his 66th power play goal, and 100th point on the power play, which tied him with Mike Gartner in both categories, for 10th and 27th respectively

  5. Fox (40th PP assist) and Panarin (38th) on the Kreider goal, also saw them move up on the all time list.  Fox is now tied with Ron Duguay and Don Raleigh for 49th all time, while Panarin is now tied with Marian Gaborik, Pierre LaRouche and Mike McEwen for 53rd all time
     
  6. FAKING IT:  Just over two minutes into the second period, Jarred Tinordi retrieved the puck in the defensive zone, and attempted to fake a forechecking Vinnie Hinostroza.  The Sabres forward didn't bite, easily stripping the puck and breaking in on Georgiev where he beat him up high to give Buffalo a 2-1 lead.  A minute or two later, and Adam Fox was guilty of turning it over, seeing his pass intercepted by Kyle Oposo, who quickly shot on net, only for Georgiev to tmake the save

  7. NO TROUBA AT ALL: The Rangers tied it up again at 8:03, when Jacob Trouba converted on his second goal of the season.  Trouba is starting to get his offense going, and now has  2 goals and 3 assists in his last six games

  8. THE BEST DEFENSE IS A GOOD OFFENSE: The Rangers got their first lead of the night when Kaapo Kakko found some room, and froze the netminder before slotting it home for a 3-2 Rangers lead.  Just 50 seconds later, and the game was tied again thanks to Tage Thompson, who saw his shot beat everyone through traffic.  15 seconds later, and it was 4-3 Sabres, as defenseman Rasmus Dahlin got one past Georgiev from long range, the Ranger netminder having apparently not clear sighted on the puck.  Not to be outdone, K'Andre Miiller evened it up again at 13:29, again from long range, to make if four goals between the two teams, in a span of 1:22

  9. Ryan Reaves got his first point as a Ranger, picking up an secondary assist on Miller's goal.  It was Reaves' 700th NHL game, and he became the 815th player to register an assist as a Ranger, and the 864th to record a point

  10. It was just the second goal of the season for Ryan Lindgren, but it also set a new career high for the well-liked defenseman, who has scored once already this season.  It was also his first career game winning goal, in his fourth season in the league

  11. Lindgren become just the fourth Ranger to score the game winner in the final second for the Rangers, joining Brad Richards, Grant Warwick and Dean Prentice

  12. THREE'S COMPANY: Artemi Panarin registed assists on three of the Rangers' five goals, and moved past Adam Fox, into the team lead with 19 points in 18 games.  It was the fiftieth time in his career that Panarin has recorded 3+ points in a game

  13. THE BEST OFFENSE IS A GOOD DEFENSE: It was the first time this season that three Ranger blueliners have scored a goal in the same game.  Prior to last night, the Rangers had gotten seven goals in seventeen games from their defense, they now have ten in eighteen, four of them by Adam Fox, with a pair each to Lindren, Miller and Trouba

  14. Igor Shesterkin was inserted in the third period, and stopped all four shots he faced in the final twenty.  He also picked up the win, his 9th of the season, which ranks him 3rd in the NHL.  It was the 34th win of Shesterkin's career, and ties him with Wayne THomas for 21st all time

  15. Not so much fun for Alexandar Georgiev, who has now seen his career Goals Against Average drop to 3.00, after having given up 20 goals in just under 294 minutes of ice time.  His Save Percentage has now dropped in five consecutive seasons, from a high of .918 in his rookie season of 2017-18, to a disappointing .858 this season

  16. Snce going pointless in his first ten games of the season, Kakko has put together a four game point streak with three goals, and two assists in that time period.  The four game streak matches a career high

  17. Ryan Strome also has it going, and now has a five game streak.  He now has a goal and six assists in the last five games
     
  18. ONLY TWO MORE YEARS: Patrik Nemeth continues to struggle, and was on for three of the Sabres' four goals last night, including the PP goal.  He has been on the ice for a team high 25 of the Rangers' 51 goals allowed this season, 16 of which have been at Even Strength. He's also a team leading -8 plus/minus

  19. ONLY ONE MORE YEAR: Jarred Tinordi is now -5 plus/minus after five games, having been on for five even strength goals this season in 63:15 of total ice time.  The Rangers are yet to score a goal when he's on the ice

  20. HOME COOKING: The Rangers have now won five in a row at MSG, and 9 of 10 between these two teams in New York City
