- It's another loss and one that still had some glaring mistakes, but the Rangers were far better tonight than they were in either of the past two games. They kept fighting and getting within a goal, and the compete level issues that were around after the SJ game seem to have been fixed.
- Marty Biron wasn't close to being at his best and he needs to be a lot better for Alain Vigneault to feel comfortable giving him any amount of games
- The power play looked quite nice in scoring two goals and creating a few other chances. Along with the PP, another strong game for Brad Richards who is looking more and more like the player the Rangers thought they were getting in the summer of 2011.
- Three minor penalties should equal a night in the press box for Derek Dorsett. His energy is nice, he did some good things on the forecheck, but he has to stay out of the box to be effective for the Rangers and not for the other team.
- The team finally gets to return to New York and actually get to practice in their building with only one game, Washington on Wednesday, in the next seven days. They have time to build off of what they did tonight and work on what needs to be corrected. I wouldn't be surprised to see them call up either Chris Kreider or JT Miller, especially after only going with 11 forwards tonight.
