Rangers Woes Continue...

Ummm 10-2? Really? I am sorry but how do you manage to lose a hockey game 10-2? The Rangers after an embarrassing loss in Dallas have now lost 4 games in a row. Lundqvist has a bit of a Flu which is why Valiquette played in Dallas.

But overall, the entire Rangers team has been just incredibly pathetic. Awful display of hockey. They are not scoring goals. The Rangers have scored just 5 goals in the 4 losses and in the last 8 games have scored 15 goals. In those 8 games, they were shutout twice.

On February 4th, I can't remember if I blogged about it but this is from Rotoworld:

New York Rangers head coach Tom Renney was not at all happy with the way the New York Rangers practiced on Wednesday.

The Rangers practiced for 30 minutes before Renney had had enough. He got rid of the pucks and had the players spend the last 30 minutes of practice doing sprints, crossover skating drills and rink-width laps. The punishment practice hopefully hit home for the Rangers. "It's not the first time I've been a part of that, but I guess that's what the coach felt was necessary to get his point across," Markus Naslund said. "We know we have to play better, we know we have to score. If Tom thinks we're not scoring because of a lack of effort, I guess that's why he asked us to skate." It should be interesting to see how the Rangers will respond to this. Their next game is Friday in Dallas.

Awful job Rangers. Time to step up.
