Bantering Points: 10/15/17

(Quick personal note: I’ll be away from today until next Sunday, so there may or may not be Bantering Points for the coming week. When I come back, I hope that this team hasn’t kept losing to the point where they make drastic changes, and I hope I can look at the NFL standings and see everything looking the way it should for the first time this season. See y’all next week.) For the fifth time in six attempts, the Rangers failed to earn a victory this season as they fell to the division leading New Jersey Devils last night. Despite Rick Nash busting out of his slump and finding the...

Finally, some good news came the Rangers’ way. Finally, during this dreadful 1-5-0 start — the worst of the Alain Vigneault era — there was a sliver of a reason for optimism. Reliable forward Jesper Fast returned Saturday night, and the Rangers sure could use more reliable players after falling to the Devils, 3-2, at...

Rangers fall again after quick start fades in loss to Devils

Rangers fall again after quick start fades in loss to Devils

It looked like something finally had clicked. The Rangers were clearly the better team for the opening 25 minutes, the more active, aggressive and in-tune unit. They were more physical, more defensively responsible. They had the game’s first seven shots and 13 of the first 14. They scored first, too, on Rick Nash’s first goal...

Rangers Vs. Devils: Rangers Lose Third Straight Game After 3-2 Loss To Devils

The New York Rangers were unable to stop the downward spiral this evening and have now dropped their third straight game following a 3-2 defeat by the New Jersey Devils. With the Rangers needing something to feel good about regarding their game, they came out absolutely flying during the first period. Despite not scoring a goal, there was plenty to like about the Rangers game in the early going. They were quick on pucks, pressuring the front of the net and out-shot the Devils 14-3 after 20 minutes.. That strong play carried over to the opening minutes of the second period, where the...
