Andreas Athanasiou burned the Rangers for two goals, as the Blueshirts fell to the Red Wings 3-2 at MSG. The Rangers have currently won only one game in their last twelve. Ryan Strome and Brendan Smith scored for the Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves. as New York dropped their fifth straight contest. Here is our recap.

Before the game, John Gilmour and Vinni Lettieri were recalled from Hartford and were featured in the starting lineup. New York overall didn’t play a terrible game, but the lack of consistency in the defensive zone along with not having a game breaking scorer is ultimately what led to the loss. It seems as if this is the recurring trend for the last few games. Strong efforts but inconsistent is what the Rangers.

Previous to puck drop, the Rangers paid tribute to Harry Howell, who passed away a few days ago. Madison Square Garden viewed a nice video and featured his many accomplishments during his time as a Blueshirt.

The Rangers next game is Saturday, in Toronto as they take on the Maple Leafs. 7PM start. LETS GO RANGERS.
