I don't think there was just one part of the Rangers game that wasn't there tonight, though. Offensively they never really seemed to click, and a lot of their shots were more desperation shots than good scoring chances. They had moments when they looked pretty solid, but they were short-lived. Carter was the guy I noticed who really seemed to always be putting in a good effort. Dunham let in a couple of softies, I thought. I think he could've dropped his stick to stop Zholtok's breakaway goal.. not much zip on that shot at all. If I were the coach I would blame everyone though, and not point fingers. I certainly don't think the score is indicative of the team. I expect the home opener will look a lot different.
