Rangers Lose Second Straight In 5-2 Loss Against Habs

The Rangers were unable to complete a comeback on Friday night against the Canadiens in what would be an eventual 5-2 loss. Weber and forward Artturi Lehkonen both netted two past the Rangers’ Alex Georgiev. Although the score may tell otherwise, Rangers goalie Alex Georgiev was sharp, stopping 36 out of 41 shots and salvaged multiple mistakes by the New York defense. The Blueshirts were slow and sloppy tonight, with lackluster play on both sides of the spectrum. Their defense was atrocious and their attack was subpar. Although it’s important…

Andersson Records First Of Season In 4-2 Victory Vs Sens

The Rangers snapped their two game losing streak on Monday night by surviving against the struggling Ottawa Senators. The Blueshirts were noticeably propelled by a very special night at the garden. Madison Square Garden hosted the annual Hockey Fights Cancer night which was especially meaningful to the home team because coach David Quinn sadly lost his father to cancer. A beautiful serenade of the national anthem and a special on ice gift to a pediatric cancer patient was very emotional. I would like to give a shout out to all…
