Rangers losing streak shuffles off its mortal coil (to Buffalo)

You can feel Rick Nash and the trade rumors hanging over the Ranger's collective head. I have no doubt that it has been a primary cause of our struggles lately. Nash or no Nash - we'll feel better when it's all over.

Anyway -a losing streak is dead - at least for the moment. And you know - we are a streaky team. Sure enough after struggling recently the New York Rangers once again could not win in regulation.

But we did win in OT.

A good outing where our guys showed their toughness - twice fighting back to tie from one goal deficits.

And then - in OT - Captain Ryan Callahan scored on Ryan Miller to win the game. It was Cally's 100th NHL goal and he was mobbed by happy teammates in a spontaneous celebration that please the Garden faithful and coach John Tortorella.

The come-back goals were by rookie Hagelin and Marian Gaborik. And there were assists by Richards, Staal, Del Zotto, McDonaugh, and Hagelin (again).

We again outshot and out hit our opponents.

But the big test is Monday night against the Red Hot Devils. And with the trade deadline looming - the stakes are higher.

Let's Go Rangers.
