Vancouver 4 Rangers 1: New York’s trip our west started off badly. Against a depleted Vancouver club, the Rangers were outshot and out worked as they gave up three goals in the third period. The game featured two major altercations in the third period, which the league will almost certainly have something to say about. The lone bright spot for New York was Christopher Higgins scoring his first goal of the season. A lot was expected from Higgins this year, so maybe this will get him back on track.
