This season, the Rangers are 2-0 when they score the first goal of a game and 2-5 when they fall behind at least 1-0.
After the loss to the Devils, Henrik Lundqvist said “It’s tough when we have to chase and that has been the case in a lot of games.”
Ryan McDonagh talked about how the Rangers need to build from shift to shift and capitalize that way.
John Tortorella said Wednesday after practice, that while things may not look great, they are slowly turning in the right direction, ”I think we are beginning to get our forecheck together consistently. For a good portion of the game against NJ we had the puck. We just need to get some confidence. We have been chasing games this year…a lot. We are hoping we can jump out and gain some confidence that way.”
