How far will the Rangers get this season?

Game Day: Rangers visit Renney's Oilers
Rangers look to strike oil in game two of their west coast trip.

Rangers @ Edmonton


9:30pm, Rexall Place


Rangers Record: 9-6-1

Oilers Record: 7-7-1


The Rangers are looking to bounce back after a wild third period Tuesday night that started with some grit and quite a few penalties for both teams and ended in a total collapse for the Blueshirts who gave up three unanswered goals.

Tom Renney’s Oilers like the Rangers had a fast start at the beginning of the season but due to some key injuries and the flu which bounced around the locker room has led them to go 1-5-0 in the previous six.

While the Rangers Lisin(foot) and Brashear(undisclosed) are still questionable for tonight’s game the Oilers get a key addition back on the blue line but loose their top-line center. Steve Staios will skate tonight after a concussion sidelined him the last couple of weeks, while Sam Gagner will miss a few games with a shoulder injury.

With some noticeable struggles on defense for the Rangers on Tuesday they will be tested again as Edmonton brings two exciting and potent offensive players to the rink tonight; Hemsky(4-11-15) and Penner (9-10-19). 

The Rangers need to take the body, especially with Hemsky who is great in open ice as well as find a way to get Gaborik some time to make plays. Vancouver’s Willie Mitchell was very effective in shutting down the Ranger Ace, and you can assume Edmonton was taking notes.

The Blueshirts will go up against Nikolai Khabibulin who has been mediocre as of yet going 6-6-1 in his thirteen starts with a 3.12 GAA.
