The Rangers played pretty well against an equally bad Flyers team last night, but could not solve Anthony Stolarz, falling 1-0 in possibly the worst game I’ve seen all year. This game was just bad all around. Sloppy, uninspired, lazy hockey. By both teams. But hey, #TheVision is still intact with the regulation loss. So there’s that.
Alex Georgiev played brilliantly as well, and was only beat on one goal in which he had no chance. Brett Howden left the game in the first period with a knee sprain. Still almost beat out Cody McLeod in ice time. In a game where they dressed 11 forwards. And Howden’s injury knocked them to ten. Unreal.

Four Rangers down low in a frenzy, leaving Oskar Lindblom alone to circle around and roof the loose puck. There’s not much else to this.
Oh hey a game were the Ranger controlled the action. That’s a novel concept. I guess with the Flyers being just as bad, it was bound to happen sooner or later. But hey, I’ll take it.
The Rangers are back in action Thursday against the also bad Devils in another #TheVision game. This is game two in the Hayes watch, Zuccarello watch, Kreider watch, and well basically everyone watch.
