Adam Rotter:

  • Well, it seemed like the road trip was going to end with a bit of a dud, but in the span of about five minutes, the Rangers cashed in, picked up the two points, and swept the road trip.
  • Things started trending in the right direction for the Rangers with the penalty to Kelly. Kreider scores, his knee hit Matt Murray’s head, the Sens had an ice-cold goalie, Stuetzle was called for embellishment, Lindgren scored on the four on four and then Goodrow got the winner. The Rangers took what was given late in the third and took the game.
  • Four wins is four wins, but they were all games where they, or Igor Shesterkin, found ways to win. That is an extremely good skill to have as a team, and it never really means you are out of a game, but the Rangers have a long way to go. They haven’t come close to a 60-minute effort and haven’t had a game where they can win going away. The season isn’t two weeks old, but you hope that a blowout of sorts or a game where they can carry a lead from the first to the third will be nice.
  • Artemi Panarin seems off. Maybe it’s because Ryan Strome has been out, but he just seems to be forcing plays that result in turnovers. When he’s at his best things look effortless in a way and he hasn’t had a lot of that to start the season.
  • So four wins in a row and points in five straight. Standings-wise it has been a good start to the season and I hope that as Ryan Strome and Kaapo Kakko get back that the scoring, chances, and shots will grow and their overall play will more closely resemble the result.
