    New York out of Range

    They were on a nice 3-game winning streak until the Vancouver Canucks came in and gave everything a good hosin' up. The New York Rangers (now 14-6) need to rebound from the decisive loss they experienced the other night when the Canucks' offense proved simply too dominating and scored 6 total goals with 5 different players. The total score of the game, 6-3, does not even capture the full sense of how the game went down. Perhaps they were asleep on their feet or simply just overconfident, but the Rangers fell into a 4-0 deficit within the first 23 minutes of play. The combined efforts of Chris Drury, Aaron Voros and Ryan Callahan (each with a goal for New York) was too little too late. The offense could not get it together. Nor could the defense…they looked sloppy. But maybe most disappointing was the poor performance of Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes for the Rangers. Coming into the game he held the third lowest goals-against ratio in the league (1.92). In this game, however, he didn't even make it through two periods of play, replaced by Stephen Valiquette after letting up his fifth goal. Overall, it was a total letdown on the part of the Rangers. Fortunately for New York, they still maintain a 3 point lead over second place Pittsburgh Penguins and will look to build on that when they play in Ottawa against the Senators this Saturday.
