NY Rangers Fall Again

17 02 2009

The struggling New York Rangers lost again last night. This time it was to the 14th ranked St. Louis Blues of the NHL’s Western Division. The final score 2-1 is a reflection as to how the Rangers are struggling as of late to score points. They lost Sunday afternoon to their rival Philadelphia Flyers 5-2, scoring their two goals in meaningless play after they had already been down 5-0.

During that game at home, Rangers fans started chanting ‘Fire Renney’ the Rangers head coach. They desperately need to do something to find a way to score. It’s over half the season and they don’t even have a 20 goal scorer. However, they only trail Philadelphia by 3 points for third place, but if they keep playing this poorly they could miss the playoffs.

The Rangers are considering bringing back LW Sean Avery in an attempt to possibly spark the team. Avery signed with the Dallas Stars in the off-season to a huge contract, but due to controversy the Stars want to release him. He was on the team last year and was a productive goal scorer and also was a gnat to other teams. People say he’s the most hated player in the league. 

The Rangers face off against another rival in the New York Islanders, who happen to be the worst team in the NHL. Hopefully they can muster up a win.
