- It would be really nice if the Rangers could bring that third period style of play and aggressiveness with them for 60 minutes.
- It's a game where they probably played a total of 30-35 good minutes. They were dreadful for a large part of the second period before things started to tick up. A strong third period, some puck luck and turnovers actually going their way put the Rangers in a position to win....but they didn't.
- Rick Nash continues to get opportunities, almost all B+ to A+ type of opportunities, but can't find the net. He's beating the goalie a lot of the time, but he hasn't been able to beat the post. He's in a stretch right now where things are going for him like they were expected to go for Michael Grabner last year; a million quality chances and barely any goals. It's frustrating to watch and it must by beyond frustrating for Nash to deal with.
- Chris Kreider seems like he fighting it and needs to stop taking bad penalties. The Vesey, Hayes, Fast line was pretty solid and hopefully that is the start of a nice consistent line for the Rangers.
- In terms of the disallowed goal, upon seeing the first replay I thought that it wouldn't count. I don't think it was a distinct kicking motion either, but based upon how the NHL makes these rulings, once I saw that it went from one skate of Smith's to the other and in, that they would disallow it.
- This was a game that featured two teams that, at least to start the year, can't help but get out of their own way.
- Henrik Lundqvist did not look particularly comfortable at times tonight, understandable with the flat/sloppy play in front of him, but he need make some enormous saves to keep this game close, especially on Barzal, and then that crazy sequence in the final seconds with Josh Bailey.
- It's another game where the Rangers can take some positives out and think that with how they played in the third and OT that they deserved to win, but the biggest takeaway continues to be why they keep starting off games, and in tonight's case the second period, extremely flat. I guess losing in OT and a shootout is a step up from losing in regulation, at least you get a point, but there is still a lot the Rangers need to improve on to start winning.
