NHL: Rangers Make Wrong Kind of History in Loss to Montreal

Kieran HaweAnalyst IFebruary 20, 2008

Being a die-hard New York Ranger fan I am going to try and keep this post as un-biased as possible. With that being said, the Rangers took a five goal lead last night, then preceded to give up five straight goals, then lost in a shoot-out to the Montreal Canadiens for a final score 6-5.

The comeback by the Habs was the biggest in the team's history.

How do you give up six straight, unanswered goals! Ok, calm down. Breathe...

This is the scoring line for last night's game: Rangers goal by Brandon Dubinsky, Rangers goal by Sean Avery, Rangers goal by Brendan Shanahan, Rangers goal by Brendan Shanahan, Rangers goal by Chris Drury, Canadiens goal by Michael Ryder, Canadiens goal by Michael Ryder, Canadiens goal by Alexei Kovalev, Canadiens goal by Mark Streit, Canadiens shootout goal by Saku Koivu. Did either team have a goalie last night? Or did they both decide to take half of the game off?

In the loss, Rangers Brendan Shanahan scored two goals which gave him 19 straight seasons with at least 20 goals. Only Gordie Howe has more 20 goal seasons in a row with 22.
