- Penalties and bad changes hurt the Rangers in this game, but those issues will be figured out in the coming games. Working out those kinks is why they have preseason games.
- I thought tonight was a good showing of what Rick Nash can bring to the lineup. He didn’t score, and they didn’t dominate offensively, but he went to the net, used his heavy shot and protected the puck well. He looked engaged and was more than willing to attempt to block shots when he was out on the PK.
- It’s tough to read into tonight because it’s the first game and they are coming off a six-day training camp with no preseason games.
