Rangers-5, Penguins-6

‘Morning all! Always a tough loss when you score five goals and don’t come away with 2 points. Pittsburgh has lost a step but they’re still stacked with elite talent and can make any team pay when they don’t stay out of the box. (And you can’t stay out of the box when you’re the visiting team in Pittsburgh.)

The loss doesn’t bother me as much as the struggles of guys like Chytil and Pionk who really got exposed in this one. You’d like to see some of these younger guys start to make some progress as we head into the home stretch here. I have my concerns about them both.

I’ll link Carp’s review as soon as it’s up and I can get to it. That is of course unless ILB is back this morning and beats me to it.

Rangers 6, Sabres 2

Good morning and happy Saturday, ‘heads.

So despite the Jeff Skinner show, the Rangers come out of Buffalo with a win thanks to six goals from some guys who haven’t produced much and another impressive performance from Georgiev.

Here’s a link to Carp’s review:
