Flyers vs. Rangers recap: Late-game struggles continue

The Flyers were unable to hold a 2-1 lead with seconds remaining in the third period, and later fell in a shootout to the hated New York Rangers by a score of 3-2. On the verge of a big regulation victory over the rival New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers let the win slip away with only seconds remaining. Keith Yandle blasted a shot past Steve Mason with only 12.9 seconds left to tie the contest, and the Rangers ended up earning the win via a shootout, taking the game by a score of 3-2. Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored for New York in the skills competition, while both Sam...

The Rangers’ new No. 1 line: Miller-Brassard-Fast

The Rangers’ best forward line, by far, doesn’t have Rick Nash on it. Or Mats Zuccarello. Or Derek Stepan. Or Chris Kreider. Nope, the Rangers’ best line is centered by a resurgent Derick Brassard, flanked by a pair of emerging wingers who had been considered, by many, and at times by Rangers coach Alain Vigneault, [...] The post The Rangers’ new No. 1 line: Miller-Brassard-Fast appeared first on Rangers Report.

First time since Nov. 21-23, which is really not believable. 2) Let’s keep it in perspective.

Rangers 3, Canucks 2 (OT): The final word(s)

WHAT IT MEANS: The Rangers needed to rally to beat the Canucks, 3-2, in overtime on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden despite outshooting the visitors, 49-20, plus hitting the post five times. J.T. Miller, capping a fantastic game, scored the winner at 3:54 of the overtime three-on-three after Mats Zuccarello tied the game at 11:46 of the third period. It marked the third straight home game the Rangers have rallied for at least one point after entering the third period trailing (two goals to beat the Bruins, 2-1 and then, two days later, three goals in the third period of a 4-3 overtime loss...

Rangers Vs. Canucks Recap: Miller Scores In Overtime, Rangers Top Canucks 3-2

The New York Rangers tossed 49 total shots on net tonight, but it took overtime to solve Ryan Miller's spectacular performance. The New York Rangers absolutely dominated the Vancouver Canucks tonight, and defeated them in overtime by a final score of 3-2. This game probably shouldn't have went to overtime, but Ryan Miller's spectacular performance tonight kept the Canucks afloat all night long. Thankfully, a late goal by Mats Zuccarello tied the game up at two, and J.T. Miller eventually ended the game in overtime. If not for Zuccarello's tying goal, this game might have turned into an...

Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello still are not up to par

WASHINGTON -- Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello are struggling. Before Sunday's 5-2 loss, coach Alain Vigneault said both were failing to make good decisions with the puck and hoped they would rebound against the Capitals. It didn't happen.

Flyers vs. Rangers recap: Shootouts will never be cool

The Flyers outplayed the rival New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, but were unable to secure a victory in regulation or overtime. The shootout again proved to be their weakness, as Philadelphia fell 3-2. To outplay the other team and still lose is frustrating. It's particularly frustrating when that loss comes courtesy of a shootout. The Flyers took it to the Rangers through 65 minutes of play on Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, but once the game went into a shootout, the game's outcome seemed predetermined. A goal from Mats Zuccarello proved to be...

Chicken-dancing Glass fires back at Clutterbuck

One of the most interesting moments in the Islanders’ feisty 3-1 win over the Rangers on Thursday night at Barclays Center came at the end of the second period, as Rangers’ fourth-liner Tanner Glass did the wedding-staple Chicken Dance, flapping his arms like wings, at the Islanders’ Cal Clutterbuck. Clutterbuck had been pushing with diminutive Mats Zuccarello when Glass came around. Meanwhile, Dylan McIlrath and Islanders’ enforcer Matt Martin were separated and both were given two-minute minors for unsportsmanlike conduct. The Rangers were also annoyed that Clutterbuck came in...

Bruins Falter In Third, Fall 2-1 To Rangers

Rangers score twice in third period, hand Bruins 7th lost in last 9 games. Jesper Fast's goal with 1:42 remaining in the third period proved to be the decisive blow, handing the Bruins their second straight loss and 7th over their last 9 games. Leading 1-0 heading into the final frame, the Bruins wasted no time letting the Rangers draw even. Derrick Brassard's 15th goal of the year, just 35 seconds into the final frame, matriculated following Ryan McDonagh's undressing of Bruins traffic cone Kevan Miller. Mats Zuccarello picked up the puck from McDonagh, drove to the net and watched as...
