Again! Rangers fall 4-1, this time to Ottawa

We're not pushing the panic button yet.

But - we are looking around to make sure we know where that button is just in case we need it.

The Rangers dropped their second straight - again by a 4-1 score. Earluy in the year I said this was a streaky team - and that's good when your winning. But now we've got a losing streak and we're got to ride it out.

This time the Rangers did out shoot (26-22) and out hit (37-35) Ottawa - by small margins. And this kind of game is set up for Henrik Lundqvist to take the victory by being the better goalie.

But last night it was Marty Biron - who has been mired is sub-par play for a while now. Marty saved 18 and let 3 ring the buzzer for a .857 save percentage. That's not good enough to win most games and it wasn't enough here.

On offense - Captain Callahan took a step forward from his foot injury - scoring the Lone Ranger goal in the losing effort. Assists for Richards and Stralman and ...

And that's it.

We're sill up 6 points on the Penquins. No need to panic yet...

...but you may want to check back after tonight's game...
