Too close a Call Against Ottawa

It has been an average season for the Atlantic Division: all squads are in the playoff picture and the much improved Islanders are situated in last place in the Division (seventh seed).

With this in mind, the Rangers must step up their game in the next few weeks. As mentioned in the previous blog, the Devils steamrolled right past the Blueshirts and the Flyers are gaining ground. Even though the result was positive against Ottawa, there was not much positive coming from that contest moving forward.

The Rangers were unable to launch an assault on the Senators as they had to fight through seven shootout rounds before earning the victory. Lundqvist was excellent in shutting down Ottawa but the Rangers missed several scoring chances in a flurry of opportunities in the third period. The second set of twenty minutes was not promising either until the Rangers put the puck in the net on a shorthanded chance.

Ottawa took New York out of it’s game through the power play. The Rangers suffered more penalties than a monopolistic corporation, cited by the Securities Exchange Commission, that uses measures to stop competitors from earning a living. Four penalties within a sixteen minute stretch is not going to cut it! Michal Roszival and Daniel Girardi have been inadequate, and although the team performed better than as of late, it still begs to question whether this squad will have enough energy to take out the Capitals tonight.
