Rangers beat Devils 1-0 in overtime

Full story: Newsday

During their nine-game winning streak, the Devils had allowed only 14 goals. Yesterday, all it took was one from Brendan Shanahan to end the Devils' surge and snap the Rangers' three-game skid as well.

Will the defense still be there when the offense arrives?

At what point do scoring problems of the New York Rangers' move from annoying anomaly to full-blown crisis? The Rangers defeated the New Jersey Devils 1-0 in overtime Sunday, which is pretty much the only way they can win games these days. The Rangers are the lowest-scoring team in the NHL, averaging 2.17 goals per game

The Devils scored ZERO goals, and still they got 1 point in the standings.

Lets go back to the old point system. 2 points for a win, zero for a loss.... if you win in the shootout, it should only be worth 1 point. So says Effigy of the Forgotten

Agreed, never liked the system they have in place now.

Get rewarded for losing.

So go into defensive mode and ride the tie score into OT and grab a point.

Scoring is down throughout the league, although the Rangers seem to be suffering more than most.

Listening to some of the players, they point out that most teams are now more determined to reduce opponents' scoring chances - tighter checking, less pinching, more blocking of shots, getting in the shooting lanes. Not sure what the league can do to counteract this (they'll probably try something since they're desperate for exposure and less end-to-end action isn't helping). Shrinking goalie equipment, eliminating the red line, expanding the ice surface? The new focus on holding and interference hasn't helped.

I agree with the other comments about the Standings Point System. Two Points for a win, Zero for a loss, One for Overtime or Shootout Win. The Rangers core players really need to step up, or coaching needs to change the lines. We need to create more offensive opportunities. I like the way the lines are, but i would like to place Drury at Center for Line One with Straka and Jagr, Move Dubinsky to Line Three with Prucha and Callahan. Then when Avery comes back, either place Avery on Line Two or Three. If on line three, put Prucha with Gomez and Shanny for Line 3. The rangers need Drury and Prucha to be close r to the net, and provide a body in front. Straka is too small to make a huge impact in front, but he will help open up ice for Jagr. Duby has been great, but I think moving up Drury and Prucha would be the offensive Spark the team needs.

Line 1 - Straka Drury Jagr.
Line 2 - Shanny Gomez Prucha or Avery
Line 3 - Callahan Dubinsky Prucha or Avery.
Line 4 - Hollweg Betts Orr

D Line 1 - Roszy Staal
D Line 2 - Giraridi Tyutin
D Line 3 - Mara Strudwick.

Trade Malik for Cap Space to help for a possible trade. Have Thomas Pock, who has shown flashes of Offensive Potential, or another young D as the 7th Defensemen.
