Notes from the Rangers loss to the Canadiens. I have a minor rant to go on, so please give me the next few paragraphs to release the poison. What's that, you don't mind at all? Thanks! - When you don't dress your best lineup on a given night (assuming everyone is healthy, which was the case yesterday) you open up the door for countless questions about what could have been. In a game where the Rangers managed to score as many goals as you or I did sitting from our couches, don't you think it's a regretful decision to sit a guy like J.T. Miller who can actually provide offense to the team?...

The 4-1 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday illuminated several of the issues the Rangers have when playing against playoff-bound teams in the NHL: Depth at center, finishing checks and getting to the net on rushes.
After the Rangers began their second half with a dud against the Islanders, changes in depth alignment appear to be in store.

My story from lohud.com: By Rick Carpiniello GREENBURGH – It was wound-licking day for the Rangers Wednesday, a day of trying to fix some of what went wrong in a lopsided 4-1 loss to the Islanders Tuesday.

Seems like it’s been a while since I did one of these. Thoughts: 1) Ryan McDonagh said the Rangers got “owned.” That could be the end of my review right there. But I’ll continue anyway. 2) The Islanders are real and they’re spectacular. I’m still not ready to say they’re better than the other top [...] The post Rangers-Islanders in review appeared first on Rangers Report.

OK, OK, I know I said after the last missed road game I was all in on the season. And I was. Right up until the moment I hurt my ankle over the All-Star break. So I’m on temporary IR, back on the couch, watching the games. Hopefully, I will be back in the press box quickly. Just need the doc’s OK to get going again. Anyway… After six days off for the All-Star break, the Rangers stumbled in their Metropolitan Division showdown against the first-place Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, losing 4-1, Tuesday night. So now the Rangers have lost all three of their games to the Islanders this...

Proximity always has been the key ingredient in Rangers-Islanders games. Closeness between the teams and their fans is what provides the spice and vinegar. This time, the Rangers grew closer to figuring out why their games against the Islanders this year haven't been all that close.
