Blueshirts brought back down to Earth.
Sharks 7 Rangers 3
When the Blueshirts opened up a 2-0 lead early, it was looking like a beautiful night for the boys at MSG. But then careless play ensued, and shots started to get past (surprise starting goalie) Steve Valiquette, and period 1 ended 2-2. San Jose did all the scoring in the 2nd, and led 5-2. That was it for poor Steve, and Henrik came in to endure the last 20 minutes.
Lowlights: giving up 6 unanswered goals, taking too many penalties (7, including 2 to Sean Avery, shown above).
The Rangers have a couple of days to think about playing smarter hockey, and will hopefully play a complete game against the Devils for the home fans on Thursday night...
Let's Go Ranguhs!!
