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.

Kids Night
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ - November 14, 2007

by Toby Ivey

There haven't been many nights like this in recent Rangers' memory. Not only did the Rangers pick up the win on the Devils' home ice, but they also saw three different rookies (and Rangers' draft picks) score for the team.

Jaromir Jagr ultimately got the game winner, but it was goals by Nigel Dawes, Brandon Dubinsky and Marc Staal which made the night a sweet one for many both within and outside the organization.

Long criticized for their lack of focus on developing youth, the Rangers started tonight with seven draft picks in the line-up, an eighth who was an undrafted free agent and two more who had played less than a season before joining the Rangers.

Turning Point
With a 4-2 lead and a late power play, the Rangers looked to have the game wrapped up. Brian Gionta picked off a Paul Mara pass and went in alone against Henrik Lundqvist. The Ranger netminder immediately came out on the play and made an arm save to preserve his team's two goal lead.

Offense
Jaromir Jagr and Brandon Dubinsky both had games where they were noticeable on offense, with each picking up goals in the win. Dubinsky's was a backhander off a Jagr rebound that revolved around a give and go on the cycle in the Devils' zone and then Jagr's willingness to skate to the slot for the shot. Dubinsky setup Fedor Tyutin in the second on a nifty pass while skating backwards towards the goal, and only a smart save by Brodeur prevented the defenseman from scoring.

Jagr scored his first power play goal in uncharacteristic fashion, jamming home a puck from in close, after reaching around from behind the net on the initial shot. Jagr had another goal stopped on the line by Brodeur earlier in the second, a chance that had to be reviewed (and blown up) before it was clear that not all of the puck had crossed the line.

Marcel Hossa continues to struggle to find his offense, and is quickly becoming the odd man out when Martin Straka and Ryan Callahan make their returns from injury.

The Gomez line was relatively quiet after the theatrics in Toronto. Scott Gomez got two assists to extend his point scoring streak, but Sean Avery was notably quiet after having being fined by the league earlier in the week. Brendan Shanahan picked up an assist on Marc Staal's goal, but did not trouble Brodeur too much on the night.

The third line too has still yet to really get going. Nigel Dawes scored his first goal since he potted two against Martin Brodeur to start this run of success, while Chris Drury continues to look like Petr Prucha in terms of missing the puck in spectacular fashion as he goes for the big wind up. Prucha could well be feeling the pressure soon, and it would not surprise to see the third year forward under pressure too from the return of Callahan unless he gets something going in the next couple of weeks.

Tom Renney's confidence in the fourth line continues to be demonstrated, and they certainly did not disappoint tonight. The trio of Blair Betts, Colton Orr and Ryan Hollweg were sent out for the second to last shift in the game, and came close to scoring into the open net with their forecheck.

Defense
The top pairing of Dan Girardi and Fedor Tyutin got caught out of position on the first goal, with Tyutin following his man along the boards, and Girardi getting caught between two Devils. Perhaps Scott Gomez could've come down to help on the goal. It wasn't a stellar night for Tyutin, who continues to play quietly after a string of games earlier in the season where he was much for involved in both offense and defense.

The second pairing of Marc Staal and Michal Rozsival had a great night two, with each defender picking up a point offensively. Staal notably picked up two penalties, the first sent Devils blueliner Paul Martin out of the game with an injury on a seemingly harmless check that drew an interference penalty in the first period, while the second was retribution for a Vitaly Vishnevski hit on Petr Prucha.

Staal's offense continues to develop, and he appears to be the most willing defenseman to shoot the puck from the point, and seldom seems to get his shot blocked. The young blueliner's shooting paid off in the third with his first goal, and the fourth for the Rangers on the night...beating Brodeur cleanly without traffic in front.

Paul Mara's up and down season continues, with a give-away in the third while on the power play, when he tried to force a puck through three Devils to Chris Drury. Drury got caught in no-man's land and the Devils got a breakaway. Jason Strudwick could easily have been credited with an assist on the Rangers' first goal as he caused the turnover with his boot that lead to the rush the other way. Strudwick continued to play steadily.

Goaltending
Henrik Lundqvist returned to the net after sitting out the game in Toronto. He looked a little rusty in the early going, but showed there was no rust later when he stopped Brian Gionta on a breakaway. On the first goal, a rebound of a long shot went straight to Jamie Langenbrunner for the roof shot, while the second goal came from a scramble in front that ultimately saw the puck deflect the puck to Langenbrunner for his second of the night.

Special Teams
Both teams had five power plays on the night, but it was the Rangers that got the upper hand, particularly on the penalty kill. The fourth ranked PK unit stopped all five penalties they faced, and were particularly effective early in the game.

The Rangers did manage to tally a power play goal, but for the most part the man advantage was not effective at all, and even gave up a prime short handed chance to Brian Gionta late in the third that Henrik Lundqvist stopped.

Milestones and Notes
The Rangers made their first visit to the new Newark arena a successful one, ending a string of three straight losses to the Devils on their home ice. Jaromir Jagr appreciated the visit too, making it the 53rd arena in which he had scored an NHL goal...a record he now holds alone.

The goal was also Jagr's first power play goal of the season, and it took him eighteen games to get it.

Martin Brodeur was denied his 500th NHL win for the second time, with Nigel Dawes picking up his third goal of the year (out of four) against the veteran netminder.

Marc Staal picked up his first NHL goal, the fourth goal scored by the Rangers on a sharp wrist shot that deflected in off the top of the far post.

It was the first time three Ranger rookies had scored in a game since March of 1990.

Scott Gomez registered two assists to stretch his point scoring streak to seven games now.

The Rangers failed to score the first goal of the game for the first time in the last ten outings. They did however break their jinx of not having won this year when they failed to score first.

The team is now on a three game winning streak, and have won seven of their last eight games, and eight of their last ten to go 8-2-0.
