Kukla's Korner Hockey

Reason For Concern

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
There's reason for concern. Not only because the Rangers have lost three straight, the last two of which to the Islanders and Penguins were worse and worser. And not only because the Rangers have been able to win just nine of 22 (9-9-4) since the Olympics, after having won 10 of 12 (10-1-1) preceding the break. There's reason for concern because the Rangers have appeared so lackadaisical about capturing the division title. From the moment they clinched a playoff spot with an April 4 shootout victory at the Garden over the Flyers, the team refused to establish finishing first as its objective. Even if a few have said the goal was to finish first - notably Tom Renney and Jaromir Jagr - words haven't carried over into action. The Rangers haven't appeared prepared to play 60 minutes of winning hockey.
