I’ve not posted updates lately due to the extenuating circumstances of my dad’s death. On Tuesday, the Rangers beat the Maple Leafs 5-4, and last night they snatched a tie from victory, knotting it up in Buffalo, 4-4. What’s irritating about this is that the Rangers led 2-0 at the end of the first period, only to allow four goals in the second.
If the Rangers plan on going far this season, they need to play defense. They’ve scored 14 goals and have allowed 19 goals in five games, which is slightly less than 3 goals a game, offensively and slightly less than 4 goals a game, defensively. The Rangers currently sit at .500, having 5 points out of a total of 10 possible points.
Next up: Nashville, on Saturday. The Rangers should win this one, but you never know . . .
