Game 23: Detroit ain’t what they used to be

Credit: AP / Paul Sancya)

actonel 150 mg 0800 After the 6-1 demolition of the Canes on Wednesday, the Rangers are back home tonight to take on the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings aren’t built very well, but they are certainly outperforming their roster at the moment, albeit at barely above hockey-.500. The Rangers are more talented up and down the lineup. So after the strong win on Wednesday, this has all the makings of a trap game.

zyrtec price in philippines The Blueshirts are going to be without Ryan McDonagh again, but that didn’t necessarily hurt them against Carolina. They will look to keep their scoring touch going against a Red Wings team that have allowed 64 goals in 22 games. This is the time for the Rangers to bank points. Avoiding the trap game is critical.

diclofenac sodium 50mg price The Wings run a 1-2-2 forecheck, which is fairly standard. But Blashill is very aggressive, and encourages the first defenseman to get involved at the blue line, instead of the red line. That means more pressure on the Rangers blue liners to make proper decisions with the puck. The Rangers deploy a similar forecheck, but are less aggressive with their defensemen, preferring to pressure at the red line, instead of the blue line. The risk of Blashill’s scheme is that quick passing can lead to odd-man rushes with that aggressive defenseman.

buy copegus cena In the defensive zone, the Wings play a hybrid overload/low zone collapse. They overload the strong side, much like the Rangers. When the puck gets below the goal line, the forwards collapse into low zone coverage. That’s where the Rangers differ, as they switch to man coverage when the puck gets below the goal line. Although it was admittedly hard to see what kind of scheme the Rangers ran early in the year, they’ve been significantly better at their switches lately.

bactrim ds 160 800 mg The Wings run a variety of breakouts, all detailed here. This is common for a lot of teams, and the way Prashanth breaks it down is very relevant, as the Rangers play a 1-2-2 forecheck. The Rangers have had a strong forecheck the last few games, so expect them to pressure those first two passes on the breakouts. For more breakout plays, see this post from Suit.

source link On special teams, the Wings run a 1-3-1 powerplay. This has been standard for multiple teams since the Bolts started using it a few years ago. The Wings don’t have that one sniper they try to feed, so they rely on quick passes to breakdown the penalty kill. Considering how amazing the Rangers’ PK has been, the best bet is to stay out of the box. On the PK, the Wings are one of the few teams that don’t run some form of hybrid system.They run a straight wedge+1, which is similar to the diamond force the Rangers use. Both have a “roamer” designed to force the play, while the remaining three defenders take out the high percentage shots. The difference is that the Wings will only use their forwards as the “+1” whereas the Rangers will rotate out based on puck location, including defensemen. The wedge is simpler to execute and more conservative, but the diamond force creates more turnovers.

    Paul Carey is playing again, with DD sitting. Lineup the same as in Carolina.

    • Nov 24, 2017 at 5:31 pm

      Detroit has been deploying 11 forwards and 7 defense men recently. Clearly the mark of a moron coach.

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 5:34 pm

        Ha! Good one!

        • Nov 24, 2017 at 5:38 pm

          Almost as good as last games proclomation of “see AV does change the lineup after a win”. Wait, he didn’t.

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 5:37 pm

        LMAO, that’s a great comment

      • Nov 25, 2017 at 12:11 am

        Was that meant as a crack at AV? If so I don’t get it. The joke I get, the wise crack not so much.

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 6:29 pm

    Rangers 8-2-0 in their last 10…..Keep it rolling…….LETS GO RANGERS !!!!!

    C’mon defensemen, centers and forwards HELP YOUR GOALTENDER !!!!!!!!!

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 7:51 pm

    I’ll give credit when it’s due….It was all Leaky in the 1st period….the star of the period by a long mile

    • Nov 24, 2017 at 8:49 pm

      Goaltending clinic on both sides tonight. Being a former goalie I appreciate the display

    • Nov 25, 2017 at 7:48 am

      Thank you. Thumbs up.

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 8:51 pm

    On another note.. can anyone on this team grow a stache that resembles they’ve hit puberty?

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 8:53 pm

    Both goalies just outstanding. Helluva duel. Let’s hope the Blueshirts can elevate a couple of pucks in the 3rd.

    Hank definitely deserved the #1 star… Great play by Skjei on the winner.. and a Zucc snipe to finish. Maybe that gets Zuccy lighting the lamp more… LGR!!!!!!!

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    The Rangers had trouble with the Red Wings team speed tonight (too much turkey dinner perhaps). They got beaten to a lot of pucks. Henk was a standout and kept them in the game. But it the end, the sneaky hobbit got himself all alone in front of Jimmy Howard and went top shelf for the winner.

    • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:10 pm

      Zuc just agreed with you on the post-game. Turkey hangover in the first period. 🙂

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:15 pm

        Darn I missed the post game interview.What a fun game to watch, Lundqvist has definitely found a fountain of youth he played awesome.Just needs a bit of stickum on his goal stick.

        • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:46 pm

          Ha! I was thinking of you the two times he lost his stick! Pretty funny.

          Yep, Hank is on quite a roll. He hasn’t given up an even strength goal in the last 10 periods of play.

  • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    Rough first, great second, even third.

    Hank was the difference.

    We needed that win badly. All around the Metro teams picking up points. To lose on such a stellar Hank performance would have been cruel.

    Hats off to Howard, too.

    • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      The Rangers had to win 9 out of their last 11 just to move into the second wild card position. I have never seen a division and a conference this tight. Every game is huge right now….and it’s not even December!

      Going to be a nail biter of a season. This upcoming week is huge. Need at least 5 points, if not all 6.

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:50 pm

        Competition these past 11 games hasn’t been top tier, though, for the most part.

        Will be interesting see if the Rangers can keep this up.

        • Nov 24, 2017 at 11:02 pm

          Well, they did beat TB and Columbus, two teams that certainly could meet in the ECF. They beat an Ottawa team that as we all know went to Game 7 of the ECF last year. We beat a Bruins team that’s been playing real well as of late. So I’d say a mixed bag there. In this parity-laden league, you win 9 of 11 regardless of who you play, that is saying something.

          Win these next three, then be competitive in the division games the following week, and we should be in reasonable shape.

    • Nov 24, 2017 at 10:51 pm

      Howard was fantastic.. and props to Hank with a 1.02 GAA and .971 save % over his last 4 games.. alot of that because of his positioning lately. He looks alot more comfortable. I also thought Kampfer had another good game… One final point.. with Nieves going down early… Do we see a Lettieri call up coming?

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 11:06 pm

        Probably only if Nieves is going to be out for awhile. AV said in the post game they don’t think it’s anything significant. So at this point probably not.

      • Nov 24, 2017 at 11:13 pm

        It’s easy enough to slot DD back in for Nieves.

        But Carey was never really supposed to be a permanent fixture, so I’d really prefer to see Lettieri called up.

  • Nov 25, 2017 at 12:23 am

    Gotta love the goaltending battle ! Great stuff , Hank controlling rebounds the whole nite , Howard making unreal point blank cross ice blasts ! Zuc sighting , game finally coming round …. Got no choice , everybody else is winning close to us ( even the Devils – Dummies )

    • Nov 25, 2017 at 12:50 am

      Damn those Devils.. but good to see Boyler pot one tonight

    • Nov 25, 2017 at 7:14 am

      And here I thought you’d be down to one “Sieveqvist” after that game…?

      • Nov 25, 2017 at 9:03 am

        Haha … Good stuff Sittoo … I’m halfway alright for a Devils fan ??

  • Nov 25, 2017 at 8:07 am

    Other than the stops and starts in the first period, which seemed to go on forever, lol, a very entertaining, low scoring game.

    But let me say this, and yes I am biased, I had a birds eye view of that Grabner “trip” that led to the Wings’ PP goal and that was a horrific call. I screamed in disapproval (I never scream at the games) right when it happened and more so after seeing the replay on the MSG board to show that Grabner was merely playing the puck. That could have been the game winner which would have been injustice. Thank God the Rangers tied it and negated the Wings’ goal.

    As much as I disagree with Fast being on the top 6, he is a marvelous player. If the Rangers are going to make any noise this year then they will need 4 productive lines. Putting Fast with Boo will help Boo tremendously and I would love to see Lettieri join them, for a nice up tempo 4th line, with Fast as the “digger” for the 2 young players. I bet they do well together.

    I was at a friend’s house for the 2012 draft. The Rangers were picking 28th. When it got to the 20th pick we both started looking at who was left for the Rangers to pick. We both independently chose Skjei. I got to see him play for Minnesota on TV and loved his skating and his game.

    There aren’t too many players I would trade Brady for, but Trouba is one of them. I keep hearing that Trouba is on the Rangers’ wish list but Jacob will cost a ton. Does McD go in a deal like that? Maybe. I’m not sure if McD has a NTC but the Jets are one of the few very “righty” teams and would probably want a top pair left handed D man. I almost believe that Brady is more untouchable for trade than McD is at this point.

    Raise your hand if you thought that Zuc was going to try and pass it back to Brady instead of shooting in the OT last night (my hand is raised, lol). Zuc has a great shot, wish he used it more often. Very good, and hard fought win.

    • Nov 25, 2017 at 9:20 am

      Great analysis my friend!

      As for McD, he has a Limited NTC, so he could be moved to certain teams that he presumably would have designated. I’m sure the Wild would be on that list. If they continue to struggle, would they be willing to part with some goodies, and maybe bring a hometown boy back? As for the Jets…would McD be willing to go there in a deal? Unknown.

      I’ve been a Skjei fan from the beggining, just like you. During the raging debates two years ago when discussing McIlrath vs Skjei, and who would be more effective, I was shocked so many out here thought McIlrath would be the better NHL player, when the scouts were all saying the former was a marginal NHLer at best, and the latter was the next Ryan McDonagh. Seemed pretty clear to me.

      First step of course is McDonagh needs to be healthy in order to get a decent return. Second thing is, it will all depend where the Rangers are at the trade deadline, and of course what the return would be. But certainly by next summer, I could see the logic in dealing the captain for the guys.
