If you are a New York Rangers fan or had been watching the team the past month and a half or so, you knew that the team was going to make a change whether it was with management, acquiring/trading a player or firing the coach.
As it turns out, it was the third option as the team let go of head coach Tom Renney and replaced him with John Tortorella. While many people will feel for Renney and believe that it really wasn’t his fault, this move had to be made and Tortorella will come in, hold players accountable and may be just the guy that the team needs going forward.

What do you folks think?
The New York Rangers have won two of their last four games (had a 2-1 OT loss to the Buffalo Sabres and 6-3 spanking at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens) and look to continue their strong defensive play and timely goal scoring when they take on the New York Islanders tonight at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
After head coach Scott Gordon explained to the media that he wants to play his youngsters more, it’s easy to think that the Rangers may skate all over the Isles tonight and come up with two points. However folks, remember that this is the Blueshirts and that they’ve lost games like this to the Isles before.
As such, Rangers’ head coach Tom Renney is keeping the same lineup he used on Saturday night in the team’s 2-0 shutout victory over the Ottawa Senators. This means that Aaron Voros and Dan Fritsche will once again be scratches.
