Rangers Forget To Score - lose 1-0 to Montreal

On Dave Puck’s birthday no less!  It’s no blowout – but the Rangers managed just 24 shots (and only let up 26.  We looked like we were headed for OT and a point when with 5 minutes left a long shot by Max Pacioretty went through McDonagh’s legs and screened Lundqvist.  The shot hit the King’s glove but somehow bounced in. 

Wasted were missed Nash shots off Price’s head and a missed breakaway attempt.  Also notable was a disallowed goal in the first where Hank got the benefit of the doubt.  Lundqvist slammed his stick on the ice on the way to the locker room. 

Did Special Teams Determine The Outcome Of This Game? No.  Our PK was 3-3 but PP was 0-2.  A wash.

Where Do We Stand?  Caps won so they are in third – one point up but the Rangers have 2 games at hand.  We’re in the first of the two wild card slots.  Still 6 points above the line-of-death.

What Will Happen Next?  At home to Carolina on Saturday.

Non Sequitur of the day:  Thanks for all those birthday cards and letters.  As Groucho Marx said – you’re only as old as (the women) you feel
