Rozsival's big night!.jpg
Rangers 3 Kings 2 OT
Michael Rozsival score 2 goals: a penalty shot in the 2nd, and the game-winner in overtime, way to go, Rozy!
Steve Valiquette got the start in goal, obviously, it went very well, (39 of 41!) so there's enough time for one more stirring rendition of the NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song woohoo!
How about another 'yay' in San Jose ...

Conquering California?

Road trip begins w/WIN!.jpg
Rangers 3 Ducks 1
Nigel Dawes broke a 1-1 tie late in the 3rd, stealing a pass, faking a defender (Chris Pronger!) out of his jock, and going 5-hole for the game winner:

Looks like a Glove Save for the King!.jpg
Rangers 3 Hurricanes 2 OT/SO
I'm not sure why the Rangers were wearing white jerseys for a game at MSG, but maybe it changed their luck. After losing so hideously 2 nights ago to New Jersey, the boys played a much tighter game last night against Carolina. King Henrik (29 saves) only allowed the 2 goals in regulation, and then was perfect in the overtime and perfect in the shootout. Just what was needed!
Markus Naslund and Blair Betts put biscuits in the basket, and Captain Chris Drury scored the only goal of the shootout:
Your game-winning goal!.jpeg
And wow, Drury scored on the 5th NYR try, and the Hurricanes missed on all 6 of their attempts. Way to go King Henrik!
Way to go, King Henrik!.jpg
At times like these, only this song will suffice: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
Big trip out west, starting in Anaheim on Tuesday...

I'm not impressed.

Numbing in Newark.jpg
Devils 8 Rangers 5
The Rangers go to Jersey for the big rivalry matchup, and promptly spot the Devils a 5-1 lead. guh. But the boys battle back to tie it up at 5-5!! Yay, right? WRONG. The Devils scored 3 unanswered goals to humiliate NY and leave the Blueshirts wondering what's wrong with their defense. King Henrik gave up all 8 goals, all the while watching his teammates flounder around him in the defensive zone.
Carolina at home tomorrow...
Let's Go Ranguhs!!

18 second solution!

I'm Smiling, Too!!.jpg
Rangers 3 Thrashers 2 OT
The Rangers don't believe in doing anything the easy way; how many wins have come after regulation time? [answer: a LOT] Last night in the ATL, Scott Gomez scored 18 seconds into overtime to snag the 3 points for New York. Steve Valiquette got the victory in goal for the boys, and Colton (no relation to Bobby) Orr scored his first goal of the season! That calls for some music: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
Happiness is scoring the g/w goal in overtime:
Gomez seems very pleased with his OT winner!.jpg
So how about another win tomorrow night against the Devils...

Another Flame-out

Sunday not funday..jpg
Flames 3 Rangers 0
As was the case a week ago, if it were not for my Pittsburgh Steelers, this would have ruined my (sports) Sunday.
Miikka Kiprusoff wouldn't even give the boys a sniff at the goal, stopping 31 shots for his 3rd shutout. Jarome Iginla scored the game-winner, the Rangers have lost 3 of the last 4, and that's about all I can say.
Try, try again in Atlanta tomorrow night...

Oy, Canada.

Oy, Canada.jpg
Canadiens 6 Rangers 2
guh. I got all excited about the match-up of 'Original Six' teams, and my boys go and get their a**es kicked. O, Mon Dieu!
Let's just say that I expect a better effort tonight when the Blueshirts play host to Jarome (don't call me 'Jerry') Iginla and the Calgary Flames...

Shootout Mystery?!

The Word of the Day is YAY!.jpg
Rangers 3 Penguins 2 OT/SO
Guess who finally scored his 1st goal of the season after missing 10 games as a 'healthy scratch': Petr Prucha! (see above). Big goals in big games will keep you in the line-up, Petr Puck, here's a tune you need to hear more often: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
The boys had to come from a 2-0 deficit, with Nikolai Zherdev tipping in a Gomez shot in the 2nd period and the Prucha goal tying it up in the 3rd.
The refs moved in to break up Colton (not relation to Bobby) Orr and Eric Godard as they were beating each other senseless:
Dances with Zebras (Colton Orr & Eric Godard).jpg
Is there any mystery left to the NYR shootout strategy? Just let King Henrik Lundqvist do his thing, and Nikolai will most likely get the job done:
Nikolai loves the shootout!.jpeg
Marcus Naslund and Fred Sjostrom also were successful in the shootout, and the Penguins' (who somehow decided NOT to use Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin!) Letang put 1 past good King Henrik.
The boys are in Montreal to face Les Habitants tonight...

Second Period Collapse. =(

The Immortal Craig Anderson?.jpg
Panthers 4 Rangers 0
Some guy named Craig Anderson held the Blueshirts scoreless on 37 shots, and the boys took 6 and a 1/2 minutes off in the 2nd, allowing 3 goals in that span. King Henrik was deposed to the bench, and if it weren't for my Steelers beating the Patriots, this lame Rangers effort could very well have ruined my Sunday.
The string of games against scrub teams is over. Gotta be much stronger and smarter against Sid the Kid and the Penguins this Wednesday...
