RUMOR MILL

Friday - January 21st

Elliot Friedman on the NHL Network today, talked a number of teams including the Rangers. He mentioned that Chris Drury is a "stealth guy", someone who goes a bit under the radar.

With respect to who they might be interested in, he reiterated that the team had shown some interest in Jacob Chychrun of the Arizona Coyotes. It's not a new rumor by any means, and we're still 2 months - to the day - from the trade deadline, but he did make the connection.

He also said he expects Drury to make some moves, and possibly a forward would be something they'd look at.

All Good Things Must Come To An End
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 2:29:20 PM - December 9, 2021

A five goal outburst in the second period last night, quickly put an end to the Rangers' seven game winning streak and eight game home winning streak.  The league's best offensive team took advantage of rookie netminder Adam Huska, and a disorganized Rangers line-up that were backing up after a game in Chicago on Tuesday night.

It was a disappointing end to the recent run of wins, but not entirely unexpected given the schedule and some recent loose play that has crept into the Rangers game.  What will be more important, will be whether the Rangers can rebound from the loss tomorrow night in Buffalo.

Twenty thoughts:

  1. Adam Huska became the third netminder the Rangers have used this season, earning his NHL debut courtesy of an injury to Igor Shesterkin, a tight workload, and some incosistency in Alexandar Georgiev's game this season.  He became the 88th netminder to dress for the Rangers in a regular season game, and the first from Slovakia to play in net for New York

  2. Drafted in the seventh round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Huska is the second player from that draft to make it to the NHL, and first to play for the Rangers.  Third round pick Aleksei Saarela also made it to the NHL, getting 9 games with the Florida Panthers in the 2019-20 season

  3. The Avalanche came out early and tested Huska, with Mikko Rantanen scoring under the blocker to give the visitors a 1-0 lead on their third shot on goal

  4. TROUBA SCORE: The Rangers did respond though, with Jacob Trouba scoring his sixth of the year from out near the blueline, converting an Artemi Panarin pass to tie the game.  Trouba now is just four goals away from his career high of 10, set during his 2013-14 rookie season

  5. SEVENTH VS. EIGHTH:  Last night's game featured the 7th best power play team - New York, versus the 8th best power play team - Colorado.  Neither team got off to a great start though, with short handed chances given up by both teams in their respective first power plays

  6. TWO ON NO: The Rangers had an early chance to go up 2-1 when Barclay Goodrow picked off a pass in the neutral zone and went in 2 on 0 with Kevin Rooney.  Unfortunately for the duo, the pass and shot were a little on the slow side, and Darcy Kuemper was able to slide over to deny Rooney's bid for the go ahead goal

  7. GOAL BY LUNDKVIST!: Late in the first, the Rangers got their second power play chance, when Jacob MacDonald was called for holding when he pulled down Dryden Hunt in the Rangers end.  With Paranin and Strome having been on the ice, the second PP unit got the opportunity and Nils Lundkvist made it count, wristing a shot to the far left corner of the net for his first NHL goal.  He's the 735th player to score for the Rangers, and 409th to record a power play goal

  8. JACOB'S ADDER: Jacob Trouba picked up an assist, and the pair of Lundkvist and Trouba now have been involved in both of the two goals scored by the second power play unit, with a goal and an assist each

  9. Huska finished out his first period with 18 saves on 19 shots, though most were not high danger chances, with the Rangers actually outchancing their opposition by the tune of 5-2 in high danger areas

  10. SECOND COMING: While it hadn't been all the Rangers way through the first twenty, they'd done enough to gain a lead and go into the middle period with a chance to get some insurance.  The reality would be anything but that, with the Avalanche exploding for five goals to take the game away.  Nathan MacKinnon slid a puck through the five-hole as Huska attempted to poke check the star forward.  Then a deflection by Nazem Kadri less than 90 seconds later gave the Avalanche their second lead of the night

  11. An offensive zone penalty by Ryan Reaves for tripping, then gave the Avalanche a chance to make it 4-2, and Alex Newhook got a long shot past Huska to do just that.  It ended a stretch of 21 straight kills for the Rangers

  12. JACOB'S MADDER: For the second straight game, Trouba unleashed a thundering hit that sent his opponent to the ice.  This time around, it was MacKinnon who bore the brunt, and he clearly looked disoriented as he struggled to get back to his feet.  As was the case last night, Trouba was forced to stand up for himself after the hit, and got the better of his duel with Gabriel Landeskog.  It was the second "Gordie Howe Hattrick" - a goal, and assist and a fight - in two nights for the Rangers blueliner, which is also as many as Gordie Howe had in his career

  13. The Avalanche didn't appear to miss a step withotu MacKinnon on the ice though, Logan O'Connor capitalizing twice on Ranger misplays to make it 6-2 at the end of two, first of all undressing K'Andre Miller before beating Huska, and then picking off an errant puck that went to no-one on the point, to break in a lone on the rookie netminder.  Huska's body language on both goals was telling, with the 25 year old clearly looking overwhelmed

  14. It took almost half the third period for the Rangers to get a shot on goal, but they finally got a third when Miller pushed a puck forward for Alexis Lafreniere to carry into the offensive zone, where the sophomore found Filip Chytil high in the slot for his third of the year.  It capped a two point night for Chytil, who has struggled to get his offense going this year, despite several very good chances

  15. The Avalanche again answered though, making it 7-3 on Rantanen's second of the game, and Huska would end up with 32 saves on 39 shots and a 7.11 goals against average

  16. The loss prevented the Rangers from moving into outright first in the NHL, and they remain in second, one point behind the Panthers, Capitals and Leafs, all who have 38 points.  Their win percentage also dropped to .740, moving them back below the idle Panthers, and into a tie with Minnesota for second in the league

  17. Adam Fox saw his seven game point streak ended, as did Ryan Strome and his three game streak.  On the other side, Trouba now has points in three straight and goals in two straight, while Reaves also has assists in two straight.

  18. Gerard Gallant missed his chance to tie Larry Popein for 32nd all time with his 18th win, though his current win percentage of .740 leads all coaches in the history of the franchise

  19. The seven goals allowed, was the most for the Rangers this season, and is the first time they've given up seven or more since they lost 7-5 to Edmonton on New Year's eve in 2019 

  20. It also equalled the most goals the Rangers have ever allowed against the franchise since moving to Colorado, equalling a 7-1 loss from February 3rd of 1996
