The New York Rangers Didn’t Have A Chance Against The Chicago Blackhawks

from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,

In the aftermath of their dramatic performance in the outdoor Winter Classic on New Year’s Day at Citi Field, the Blueshirts returned to playing hockey indoors with a dud of a performance, an empty-net abetted 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks on Wednesday night at the Garden.

It was a very quick reminder of how good feelings can be so fleeting in this league, especially when fueled by mistakes.

“I saw one team playing hockey and the other chasing the whole night,” captain Ryan McDonagh said. “It’s really disappointing. We know we are coming off a big emotional win and a big stage, but we’re almost at the halfway point of the season where we need to start playing with some consistency. We didn’t give ourselves a chance.”

Winter Classic Still A Success

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Even before the numbers are recorded for the game Monday at Citi Field, this unlikely matchup between the Rangers and Sabres was the least-hyped Winter Classic yet. There was no alumni event, no preceding indoor matchup to serve as an appetizer. It would have been a reach even for NBC to cast these two New York state reps for Wednesday Night Rivalry Night.

But that made no difference at all while they played the Granddaddy of Them All in frigid Queens. If it is a given that all politics are local, it is equally true that these outdoor games are spectacles that are savored in their respective local markets and by the athletes who participate in them. The NHL hit it out of the park again.

“I could easily play one every year and not get tired of it,” Henrik Lundqvist said after improving his and his team’s all-time outdoor record to 4-0 with their 3-2 overtime victory in which J.T. Miller got the walk-off. “It doesn’t get old to me.”

The New Jersey Devils Come Out On The Winning End Against The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

A word to the wise and all of our other readers, too: Measuring sticks this time of year come in the shape of candy canes.

But my goodness, did the Devils’ riveting 4-3 shootout victory over the Rangers at the Rock on Thursday ever come in the form of an exclamation point.

This was no Christmas fable, Virginia. Brian Boyle did score both the third-period tying goal and the skills-competition decider against an otherwise spectacular Henrik Lundqvist in this Battle of the Hudson that harkened back to days of yore.

“This was something else … and in a Game 34 in December,” said Boyle, the proud 33-year-old who went to back-to-back Cup finals with the Rangers in 2014 and the Lightning in 2015 and, therefore, knows of what he speaks when it comes to placing things in perspective.

The State Of The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Regarding the Rangers, who with 16 wins in 31 games entering Friday’s Garden match against the Kings, are precisely the ordinary team their record indicates:

1. Stretches such as this one, in which the Blueshirts have played well in one of their past six matches (good versus the Devils while poor against the Panthers, Penguins, Capitals, Stars and Senators) should create clarity for Jeff Gorton as the general manager weighs his options with the Feb. 26 trade deadline coming into view.

Because no matter the paucity of formidable teams in not only the Eastern Conference, but also in the NHL, it is unrealistic to reach the conclusion the Rangers are legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, or even an affordable piece away from becoming one. Hence, it is incumbent upon Gorton to cash in on the expiring assets under his control and accelerate the team’s remodeling, whether it costs ownership a couple of playoff dates or not.
