RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

Powerless To Score
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - October 10, 2007

by Toby Ivey

The story of the night was special teams, and a Rangers offense that continues to struggle to get on track, including a man advantage that has now failed for three straight games.

Unlike Saturday, the Rangers managed to generate scoring opportunities, but failed to convert them when they came their way. Particlarly frustrating were a flubbed shot by Scott Gomez in the third period, and a shot high and wide by Brendan Shanahan moments later, both with DiPietro out of the play.

The loss is perhaps most disappointing given the Rangers' control of play for much of the game. Some would argue that several referee decisions were questionable during the game, particularly to the two that lead to the Islanders goals.

The big guns were once again silent, Scott Gomez, Jaromir Jagr and Brendan Shanahan all now goalless after three regular season games, and Chris Drury having only scored in the first game.

Surprisingly there were no fights in the game, though there were a couple of pushing matches including one initiated by Ryan Callahan early in the first period, and a get together after Michal Rozsival checked Ruslan Fedotenko into the boards to give the Islanders a lengthy two man advantage early in the third.

Henrik Lundqvist did not look quite as sharp as he did in the first two games, but he could not really be held to account for the two goals scored, and now has an identical two goals against in each of his first three games.

Turning Point
The Rangers had 38 seconds of five on three power play time to work with in the third period, but looked disorganized as they attempted to even the score at 2-2.

Offense
While the offense looked somewhat better than Saturday's 2-0 loss in Ottawa, The Rangers still were unable to convert their chances, particularly on the power play. The team failed to get much flow going once again, and when they did generally shot the puck straight into an awaiting Rick DiPietro.

Defense
For the most part, the Rangers blueline had little to contend with on the night. The team played steadily as a defensive unit and gave up goals only in 3 on 3 and 3 on 5 situations. Marek Malik regressed somewhat in terms of his play, giving up the puck on several occasions. Fedor Tyutin by contrast built on his strong play Saturday to come up with one of his best games of his career, including a great goal from the blueline to make the score 1-1.

Jason Strudwick continued to play steadily, if not spectacularly while his partner Marc Staal continued to show improvement in his play. The most noticeable play of his game was a crease clearing check after Mike Comrie had a chance in close.

Special Teams
The Penalty Kill gave up their first goal of the season, but it took a two man disadvantage for the Islanders to break the streak. Not so stellar was the play of the Rangers man advantage. The Rangers earned six power plays in the game, though only saw 7:13 of power play time.

Milestones
Henrik Lundqvist registered his first penalty minutes of his career, playing a puck outside the trapezoid. The two minutes came after 125 regular seasons and 13 post season games without a single minute.

Petr Prucha played his 150th of his Ranger and NHL career, while Jaromir Jagr made it 800 shots on goal since joining the Rangers.

Paul Mara was a healthy scratch for the second straight game, while Marcel Hossa replaced the injured Sean Avery for his first game of the year.
