Rangers Could Use Goals From Gaborik

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers are the fourth-highest scoring team in the conference as they head into today’s showdown with the Eastern leading Flyers, the Blueshirts’ production of 3.0 goals per game (discounting shootout winners) exceeded by only Philadelphia (3.39), Pittsburgh (3.09) and Tampa Bay (3.06).

That’s surprising enough on its face, but it’s almost a shock given the relatively quiet start of the face of the offense, Marian Gaborik, who does have nine goals in his 21 games, but has scored in just five of those matches, with hat tricks in two.

Some of that, as coach John Tortorella has taken to reminding the press on an almost daily basis, is on Gaborik, who doesn’t seem to be finding holes and open ice to the same degree he did last year. Last season, he scored in 28 of his first 57 games and 34 of 76 overall en route to 42 goals, fifth in the NHL.
