Game Recap: Rangers Vs. Penguins 1/18/2009

Today, the Rangers and Penguins played at Melon Arena. This game did not end well for the Rangers at all. The Penguins dominated throughout most of the game. This led to them scoring 3 goals on King Henrik. This loss led to an end to the Rangers 3 game winning streak. Chris Minard (14), Tyler Kennedy (48) and Petr Sykora (17) scored the game goals. The Rangers had 33 shots on goal but couldn't get anything passed Marc-Andre Fleury. The Penguins scored their third and final goal of the game on a power play. They are 1 for 6 on the power play. The Rangers had 3 power play opportunities.

The Rangers had many opportunities to make up the difference. Unfortunately, the Rangers had a breakdown in offense and could not do much to get into the other zone. They became desperate and started taking any shot they could. This idea has the potential to score points but nothing beats a good quality shot. Hopefully, the Rangers will do better against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.
