    Forever Blue Shirts: Rangers overmatched, Lose to Capitals 5-2

    After a disappointing loss against New Jersey, the Rangers were right back at it in Washington to take on the Capitals. Unfortunately, the effort was slightly better but was still not enough as the Rangers fell to the Capitals 5-2. Here is our recap.

    Before the game, there were a few changes made to the lineup. Gregg McKegg was scratched and Brendan Lemieux made his return to the lineup. Pavel Buchnevich was placed on left wing on the second line, while Kreider was bumped up to the first line with Zibanejad and Panarin.

    There really wasn't much difference from the game versus New Jersey and tonight against Washington.

    NY Post: Why Rangers could be closer to solving biggest issue

    David Quinn, cartographer.

    Like so many before him, the Rangers coach used the well-worn map analogy to better explain how he wants his team to play -- how he needs his team to play if they want to end their three-game losing streak and find some traction, starting with a Garden matinee on Sunday against the Canucks.

    "The only way you can go East-West is if you go North," Quinn said before his team suffered back-to-back 5-2 losses, the second leg coming to the Capitals down in Washington on Friday night, dropping his team to 2-3-0 on the season.

    Fansided: Canucks vs. New York Rangers: Betting odds, injuries, weather, more

    Coming off another loss on Friday to the Washington Capitals, the New York Rangers (2-3-0) get a much-needed day off on Saturday to get some insight on changes that need to happen. As of now, their defense leaves much to be desired as things aren't aligned as envisioned at the start of the regular season.

    The truth of the matter is, the Rangers defense needs to work better together when it comes to their overall execution as a team. With so many new players on the roster, it'll take some time for everyone to gel cohesively, which is likely the problem at this point in time in defending against the opposition.

    Newsday: Rangers coach David Quinn bemoans poor defense in loss to Capitals

    Rangers coach David Quinn made it clear after Friday's 5-2 road loss to the Washington Capitals that he didn't think much of his team's defensive effort in that game.

    "We've got to play defense,'' Quinn said after the Rangers lost for the third straight time and the second time in as many nights. "I mean you have to play defense. And it's frustrating, because I thought we were making some strides in that area, but when the game starts, it's got to be a big piece of you, and when the game is over, are you evaluating yourself and asking yourself, 'did I play good defense tonight, and was I committed to playing good defense tonight?

    Fansided: Why a reunion with old faces is the right decision

    After winning their opening two games of the year, the New York Rangers have dropped their last three including back-to-back 5-2 hammerings at the hands of the New Jersey Devils and the Washington Capitals this week.

    We all knew that this roster as it is currently constituted was going to endure some harsh growing pains in 2019-20, and those have already started just over two weeks into the season.

    Now, you could argue that some of the Rangers' struggles have been because of the bizarre scheduling that they have had to deal with to start the year, although there are clear flaws on this team that are beginning to rear their ugly head.

    Forever Blue Shirts: Rangers Roundup: Lineup needs work, Kravtsov and Chytil updates

    The Rangers will be back at it tomorrow against the Vancouver Canucks who are taking on the NJ Devils today. Questions about tomorrow's lineup will swirl all day and up until game time for sure.

    Chytil Time?

    Filip Chytil continues to play well down in Hartford as the team's #1 center, registering an assist on the Pack's lone goal in a 1-0 win. The team plays again tonight at 7PM in Binghamton. What Rangers fans should be keeping an eye out on is if he will be a scratch tonight. If so, that could signal a call up in time for tomorrow's game against the Canucks.

    Blue Seat Blogs: It's still a rebuild, but the process needs to improve

    Note: No reviews from last night. One of those games that none of us could watch. Sorry.

    As the Rangers lost last night, the reactions on social media were the same. The Rangers have lost three in a row, and really only looked good in two of their five games to start the season, and one was against Ottawa. Suffice it to say, there were questions about David Quinn, the lineup, and a myriad of other complaints.

    The focus was on Tony DeAngelo's benching, who only had one shift (a powerplay shift) in the second and third periods.

    Fansided: Time to break up Mika Zibanejad and Artemi Panarin

    So far, when the Zibanejad-Panarin-Buchnevich line is clicking it is magic, but when it isn't the New York Rangers have been virtually impotent on offense. There is an argument to be made for splitting up their two best players and that it could have a positive effect on the rest of the lineup.

    First off, let's make this clear. This is not a discussion about moving Kaapo Kakko up to the first line. The Rangers could do that and face the same issues that they are having already this season. It is also not swapping Kreider and Buchnevich which is what David Quinn did against the Capitals.

    Blueshirt Banter: Rangers vs Capitals: Rangers Drop Third Straight Game in Washington

    The New York Rangers dropped their third straight game this evening as they were handed a 5-2 loss by the Washington Capitals. New York played catchup the entire night, and just never found the tying goal when they pulled back within one. Henrik Lundqvist played out of mind as well, and turned away 31 of the 35 shots he faced on the night.

    Here is tonight's goal breakdown.

    <strong>1-0 Capitals</strong>

    T.J. Oshie (5) PPG - Unassisted - 2:24 1st Period

    It didn't take the Capitals very long to jump out to an early lead in this game, and they picked up an early power play goal.

    NY Post: Dan Quinn quickly benches Tony DeAngelo in Rangers line shake-up

    WASHINGTON -- The personnel juggling and the experimenting continues as Rangers coach David Quinn tries to find some traction in this strange schedule to start the season.

    Quinn broke up his top line before the game, switched two defensive pairs, inserted Brendan Lemieux after a healthy scratch, demoted "tired" rookie Kaapo Kakko during the game and benched defenseman Tony DeAngelo for all but two shifts after the first period.

    All this as his team lost their third straight game, a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Capitals here on Friday night.

    Having played just three games in the first 13 days since opening night, Quinn's team was jarred by this back-to-back that started with a 5-2 loss to the Devils in Newark on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON -- Early in the week, when the Rangers were still in the midst of their one-game-in-11-days stretch, coach David Quinn had said he didn't want to be hasty in making too many changes within his lineup, given the fact the Rangers had only played three games and didn't have much of a sample size on which to base any judgments.

    WASHINGTON -- David Quinn was not happy with his team's defensive effort in the 5-2 loss to the Washington Capitals Friday and he wasn't shy about saying that in his postgame media briefing.

    "Guys just going on a man-to-man mode, chasing people around, we just weren't mentally sharp at all,'' Quinn said. "We lost our way, you know, and no matter what structure we're supposed to be in, we just -- it was a lot of purposeless hockey tonight.

    Blue Seat Blogs: Game 5: Getting those sea legs in DC

    The Rangers are back at it tonight in DC, fresh off their loss to the Devils. I know you may think this game thread is premature, but believe it or not the Rangers are allowed to play twice in the same week. I know, I'm just as surprised as you are. As for their opponent, the Caps have actually played a few games, twice as many as the Rangers.

    The standings are still a jumbled mess, but the Caps are expected to be in the thick of things once March rolls around. The Rangers...not so much.

    Blueshirt Banter: Game #5: New York Rangers vs Washington Capitals Open Thread

    After handing the New Jersey Devils their first win of the season last night, the Rangers are back in action 24 hours later. The Blueshirts will head into Capital One Arena tonight and clash with the Washington Capitals. The Capitals have been busy over the first two weeks of the season, having played eight games and compiled a respectable 4-2-2 record to open the 2019-20 season.

    Although Washington swept last year's season series with a 4-0-0 record, the Rangers forced three of the four games beyond regulation, and were only outscored 17-13. With hopes of competing for a playoff spot, the back-to-back-to-back-to-back Metropolitan Division champions serve as an early season measuring stick for New York.
