O'Gara Excited About Opportunity Following Trade to Rangers

Georgiev to Start Vs. Habs; Kreider Getting Close

A lot went through defenseman Rob O'Gara's mind when he was told on Tuesday he'd been dealt to the New York Rangers as part of a package for Nick Holden. But there was one emotion that stood out above all else.

"A little bit of shock at first but then a lot of excitement," he said after his first practice with the team. "Talking to family and friends and just getting a ton of texts yesterday. It's very cool. It's a good opportunity and I'm really excited. That's the word. There were 1,000 emotions going through me yesterday, but I'd say excited was the No. 1."

The other thing that came to mind for the 24-year-old was the chance to show the Rangers what he can bring to the lineup. With the Rangers' goal of getting younger heading into Monday's trade deadline, coupled with a string of injuries on the back end, the opportunity is there for O'Gara.

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Mike Richter said while he understood the magnitude of getting his No. 35 retired by the Rangers, the honor of that night back in February 2004 has only increased over the last 14 years.

"It's an incredible night and nobody puts on a better show and show of respect than the Rangers in this regard," Richter said. "I didn't know how special it was at the time and it's now years later that you recognize how important that moment was.

Rangers Start Strong But Fall to the Flyers

Mats Zuccarello said the Rangers made it too easy for the Flyers to have their way offensively in a 7-4 loss to Philadelphia Sunday afternoon at The Garden.

"We're playing dumb defensively," he said after the team dropped its fourth straight. "People beat us to the puck. We're letting people beat us in front of the net, tips. We're getting beat up the ice. They get some easy goals today."
