• Philadelphia 5 Rangers 2: There are few things more demoralizing in hockey than giving up a shorthanded goal. When you have an extra attacker you are supposed to score and when you fail at that and give up a goal it is devastating. So, when you have a two-man advantage and you give up a goal, what can you call that? Pathetic, atrocious, abominable are all words that come to mind, perhaps we should simply ask the Rangers since they accomplished that feat Sunday.


    Down 1-0, Chris Drury got caught flatfooted at the point on a two-man advantage and the Flyers converted. They scored three more goals, to open an insurmountable lead and the Rangers are now staring into the abyss. They face two of the worst teams in the league next, but can they really be expected to pull out of this tailspin?

  • Devils 6 San Jose 5: Meanwhile, the New Jersey Devils are doing what they normally do: winning quietly. Sunday it was a shootout, but six different Devils found the back of the net and Scott Clemmensen made just enough saves in net to preserve the win.
