Another chance to gain points another wasted opportunity. The Rangers were supposed to go 3-0 on this current home stand but instead went 1-2. The four extra points would of made them an eight seeded team but instead dropped them down to tenth place over all in the conference.
Times a wasting as the exit to this season could be decided for sure on Sunday in Boston, the eight seeded team who the Rangers currently trail by three points. Not mathematically, but trailing by five points with only 11 games to go will be tuff.
The Bruins aren't making things easier on themselves either, they have also just dropped two of their last three games. A 3-0 stretch would of put their trailers away for good. So their is still a race as the Atlanta Thrashers have also got back into the mix taking over the ninth seed in a tie breaker of the Rangers. Both teams trail the Boston Bruins by three points.
The Rangers but up a good effort last night but would fall a goal short in a 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues. The effort was there for the Rangers last night, but goalie Hendrik Lundqvist had an unusual off night.
The case was just the opposite in their pervious game against the Montreal Canadians where Lundqvist was on his game but the Rangers were not. So a winning formula isn't rocket science to figure out.
Last night Marian Gaborik would get his scoring touch back having something to do with all the Rangers points posting a goal and two assists on the night earning number two star of the game.
But the game winner would be decided on a milestone goal for Paul Karyia netting his 400th career goal.
Rangers could only muster three more shots on goal trailing 4-3 with over eleven minutes to go and that would end the night for the Blue Shirts and possibly down the road of a disappointing season.
