Rangers Surrender Late Lead, Lose to Pittsburgh in OT

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Marc Staal said right now, the Rangers are having a difficult time "finding wins."

It was there for them. After erasing an early two-goal deficit, the Blueshirts eventually overtook Pittsburgh in the third. But a goal with 55.3 seconds left in regulation evened the score for the Penguins, who would cash in on a Ryan McDonagh turnover 58 seconds into the extra period to top the Rangers, 5-4, at Madison Square Garden.

Third Period Does Rangers in Against Blue Jackets

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The Rangers' offensive struggles continued Friday night when the Blueshirts managed just one goal in a 3-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Kevin Hayes scored and Henrik Lundqvist was superb, but a third period goal by Artemi Panarin 7:25 into the contest spoiled the effort and dropped the Rangers to 1-4 on the season.

New York have scored just four goals in its last four games, and has fewer than two in four of its five contests overall.

Slow Start Leads to Loss Against Blues

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

For the third time in four games this season, the Rangers surrendered the first goal of the game in the opening period.

All three of those games resulted in a loss, including Tuesday's 3-1 defeat against the St. Louis Blues at Madison Square Garden.

Carl Gunnarsson scored just 15 seconds into the contest and the Blues never trailed in the game. Mika Zibanejad scored his team-leading fifth goal of the season, but that was all goaltender Carter Hutton would allow as he stopped 32 of the 33 shots he faced.
