Rangers Go Down Quietly

At least the team’s offense did as they were shutout by Richard Bachman and the Dallas Stars by a score of 1-0 at Madison Square Garden.

The Blueshirts fired 34 shots at Bachman but the 24-year-old rookie netminder did his part and turned them all away for his second straight win. He was especially terrific in the third period when the Blueshirts were going for the equalizer.

Rangers’ netminder Henrik Lundqvist did his part to give his team an opportunity to win a hockey game by stopping 27 of 28 shots. The goal he allowed to Trevor Daley late in the third period was certainly not his fault and instead, was due to a Blueshirts’ turnover.

There is not much else to say about the game except that it was one that the Rangers could have and should have won. It was not a terrible effort by the team but it was one that resulted in no goals for.

The Rangers will be back in action on Thursday night against a streaking St. Louis Blues hockey club.

Rangers Look to Prey on Stars

The New York Rangers have another test tonight at Madison Square Garden as they take on the Dallas Stars.

The Stars are without goaltender Kari Lehtonen and are still third in the Western Conference with 33 points. With that said, they will have Richard Bachman, a 24-year-old rookie, in between the pipes for his second career start.

For the Rangers, it will be their third game in four nights as they look to win their third straight game. In the team’s two victories, the Rangers have outscored their opponents by a score of 10-1 and have been strong in all areas of their game.

With that said, the Rangers have to be aware of the “trap” game. While the Stars may be in third in the West, the Rangers have a lot more depth and are stronger in each position, which sometimes ends up forcing teams to play down to their opponent’s weaker level.
