The Rangers must have left whatever it was of hockey in Chicago, because there was nothing of hockey played by them today in Pittsburgh. Looking at it reminded me of watching an exhibition game. There was no there there. Three game winning streak gone. The three goals against them was the most in five games but that wasn't the problem. There was no offense. There wasn't even a serious threat. The Rangers drew two power plays, I don't know how and did nada. Pittsburgh was 1-5 on the PP but that wasn't the killer. The killer was that on a big game on the Nobody But Crosby television network the Rangers were an embarrassment. The Rangers took seven out of ten points on this trip by scoring 6 goals in 5 games. How long do you think that will last? Now may be the time to start looking at guys who may be available like Vinnie Lecavalier and Ilya Kovalcuk, who both seem to out worn their welcomes in their cities. Pull the trigger on some trades to get these guys. Forget the nonsense of the wonderful chemistry that exists on this team. If not we will get the fool's gold of the 2-1 wins against the dregs and collapse against the rest of the NHL. What a wasteful Sunday afternoon.
