The Rangers are 8-6-1 and Brooks writes that the Rangers have not been inspiring a lot of confidence with their play, “There’s a step forward, a step back. They’ve surrendered leads. They’ve been impotent on the power play. They have not generated a consistent forecheck. There is no cause to leap off a building, but there’s no call for anyone to place an order for confetti, either.”
The Rangers, currently in ninth place in a tie with Tampa Bay, are 6-3-1 in their last 10.
