Adam Rotter:

  • Not the result they were hoping for in the last game of this road trip. 2-1-1 on the trip isn’t that bad and heading into it I thought that four points, a split, would be the minimum and the Rangers picked up one more point than that, but certainly could have won in Seattle and could have won tonight with a strong performance from John Gibson.
  • The Rangers blitzed John Gibson in the third, but he great in making 41 saves. Tonight was probably the easiest two points of the road trip, based upon how their season has gone so far, but they came away with zero.
  • The shots were 17-2 in the third, but Gibson stopped them al.
  • Jaro Halak was not that great tonight in letting in those two in the second period. Halak had been going alright in his past few starts, but he needs to make those saves for the Rangers to put some trust in him.
  • Now the Rangers return home to face the Oilers on Saturday and what should be a big game against the Devils on Monday. Overall I think the Rangers come away from this road trip with a better understanding of the effort and consistency they need to bring night to night. They are 21 games into the season and they have found their footing a little bit. There are still issues, 5-on-5 scoring needs to improve, the PP needs to be a little bit more consistent and Artemi Panarin needs to break out of this slump. Igor Shesterkin has found his game, Adam Fox is at a Norris level and Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad seem like they are back on track. They are surviving a bit with Artemi Panarin’s struggles, like they did in the playoffs last year, but they will reach another level if he can get back on track.
