Another Day - Another PK failure - Another Loss

The Rangers extended their streak last night. They haven't won since Blair Betts was injured by Don Brashear in last year's Capitals series. Detroit beat us 4-3 and again - failure on special teams was the difference

Okay - Bright Side - Dark Side recap;

The Bright side

- Lundqvist looked very good. His new pads must be working. I'm expecting a big bounce back year from him this year - not that he wasn't great last year - he just wasn't Lundqvist-great.

- Sanguinetti finally got on the ice and looked good - as a defenseman - though we didn't see the offensive skills he is reported to have.

- we scored 3 goals for the first time in a long time.

The Dark Side

- we lost. Again.

- the Power Play? Nothing.

- the Penalty Kill? Killing us. 2 more goals against - again specials were the difference in a loss.

- Potter was no wizard out there.

- Zaba looks like our 4th best goalie. Maybe 5th.

- Redden. Enough said.

And there you have it. There's good and bad. When, exactly are we going to win a hockey game?
