rangers finish weekend 1-1-0

The New York Rangers finished the weekend with one win over the Buffalo Sabres and one loss to the Detroit Red Wings. The Ranger’s Brain Boyle scored the only goal in the first period and the only goal of the game for the Blueshirts. From there, it was all Detroit as they scored three unanswered goals (Datsyuk, Cleary, Draper).

James Howard was solid in net for the Red Wings, he allowed just one goal on 29 shots. Henrik Lundqvist played solid as well allowing two goals on 30 shots.

The biggest issue for the Rangers continues to be their lack of offense. I mentioned last week that the Rangers had to have more of a well balanced attack to be successful. They have had three different scores over the last two games, however Marian Gaborik was held to just one assist.

The Rangers have only two games next week and they are spread out nicely. They will travel to Chicago on Wednesday (another original six match-up) and then back home Saturday to face the Sabres.

I would not be surprised if the Rangers make some more moves this week, either by changing lines again or by making a trade or two. They have to turn their season around quickly…

well rested rangers pull out a win

I will keep this short because a) I don’t have the time and b) I will not have a complete opionon until I watch tomorrow’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Rangers won tonight on four days rest, beating the Buffalo Sabres 2-1. The game was close, but the well rested Rangers were able to piece together a full 60 minute contest.  Chris Higgins and Ryan Callahan scored the two goals for the Blueshirts while Jason Pominville scored the lone goal for the Sabres (with less than a minute to go).

Henrik Lundqvist and Ryan Mille both looked sharp. They may face each other in the Olympics next year. Lundqvist allowed one goal on 37 shots, while Miller gave up two goals on 32 shots.

The Rangers defeated a very solid team tonight in the Buffalo Sabres (first in the Northeast), but the Rangers have had plenty of rest. It will be interesting to see if they can keep this level of play going tomorrow as they face the Detroit Red Wings (7:00 PM – Madison Square Garden).

Rangers lose…again

Instead of recapping the home-and-home series between the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins (Rangers lost 13-5 if you add both game’s final scores together), I am just going to list a bunch of facts and opinions of how I currently feel about my favorite team in the NHL.

1. The Rangers are now .500 with a 13-13-1 record.

2. The Rangers are now tied with the Islanders. That’s right, the Islanders!

3. The Rangers have lost three in a row and are now 3-7-0 in their last ten games.

4. If the Rangers finish the season at .500 (#1), finish tied with the Islanders (#2), and finish their last ten games of the season with a 3-7-0 record (#3), they will not make the play-offs.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, we’re back….

Alright, I know… it has been awhile. A long while. I apologize, but there has been a lot going on outside the Loge. So, here is my promise to you Logers, I will have at least one post a day, every day, during the week. It might not be specifically Bruins related, but we’ll have some NHL stuff up here for you. So, needless to say we’ve missed a lot over the last month, so lets start fresh.

First things first, I’ve been receiving emails about some cool stuff going on in the show.

1. The Vancouver Canucks new locker room. Pretty sweet set up if you ask me:

Quennevilles cursed: good news for the wings

joel_quenneville1

Here is a little trivia for all you Loger’s this morning, and this doesn’t have anything to do with the Kiiid’s t-shirt giveaway, but I find this very interesting regardless. How many times have the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley cup after beating a Joel Quenneville team in the playoffs?

Hawks and Pens Go Ahead

So, I’ve had some salvation from Boston going down 3-1 in the Carolina series. Tonight, Chicago has pushed Vancouver to the brink of elimination with a 3-2 win tonight. If anything can cure a Bruins loss, it’s a Blackhawk win. If you were able to watch the game, you were in for a treat. There was a lot of back and forth, some rough stuff, and some great goals. Either way, Chicago put Vancouver in a tough spot. 

On the other side of the bracket Pittsburgh put Washington on the notification of elimination list. Pitt, up 3-2, beat Washington in OT on the night where Ovi was able to score 2-goals. Gino was able to beat Varlimov in OT to bring the series back to Pittsburgh, giving the Pens a chance to seal it at home.

At this point you may or may not know, Boston will play Carolina in a must win tomorrow night in Boston. Personally, I’m hoping it’s not the last time I see the Bruins this season. I have faith that the B’s will pull it out, based on one reason alone: the Bruins have nothing to lose at this point. Really, there is no pressure. If Boston loses, they were down 3-1 and the season is over. If they win, they still have a hill to climb. Therefore, the Bruins will go to the Gahden tomorrow, and play hockey, like it’s meant to be played, and like they have played it all season long. Care free and for the love of playing with your buddies. Nothing tops being on top of the league, and everyone has written the Bruins off, so why not go out tomorrow night and play the game as if it’s your last. I do not want to be cliche, but I want the B’s to go out and play loose, as if it’s November and it does not matter. As far as the NHL is concerned, Carolina needs to make travel plans to DC or Pitt, how about they have to make travel plans for one more night in Carolina.

OK, enough until tomorrow. I doubt we’ll have a B’s pregame, but there is one point I want to make in the Chicago/Vancouver series that is really incredible. It shows how the role of hockey has such an importance on an athlete’s lives. I’ll make that point on Sunday afternoon or Monday, I’m tired now and want to present this to the viewers on Monday, where we have most of our hits.
