Obviously, the Rangers played a bad game. They've played badly in 3 of 4 games this season. It sucks, and while I'm not happy with it, I'm not ready to declare this a bad team 4 games into the season. Granted, it's a 48 game season, but 4 games is still VERY early. Anyone remember the Wild starting out 20-7-1 and not making the playoffs? One hot streak, and this will be forgotten.

That said, for that hot streak to happen, there's still a lot of work that needs to be done. I think they've made a couple of improvements over the past two games. Defense looks better, and Lundqvist just played a fantasic game. Offense looked good against the Bruins, but tonight, it was pretty bad. Nash-Richards-Gaborik was invisible and broken up by the end of the night. Gaborik was actually one of the only players that was decent tonight aside from Lundqvist, but Nash and Richards weren't noticeable. I think the Flyers actually played a very good defensive game, but Nash and Richards have to be better.

All in all, the team looks to be improving in a couple areas...but they still need to improve in a LOT more of their game before they're winning games like they should be.
