N.Y. Rangers: Isles Trample King Henrik's Garden


Tuesday Final:
Islanders   6
Rangers     3

NEW YORK RANGERS: Islanders and Blueshirts headed in opposite directions.

The Islanders haven't moved into Brooklyn yet, but have already started throwing rocks through MSGs windows.

Long Island took 27 shots on net, and 6 of them made it passed Henrik Lundqvist en route to a 6-3 drubbing at the Garden.

That's a total of 12 goals Lundqvist has surrendered in the last two games.  He endured a disastrous 2nd period against Toronto in the home opener before getting pulled.  On Tuesday night, things went awry for Lunqvist in the 3rd period, when he allowed 4 goals.

Making his 2nd start, Jaroslav Halak faced 43 Rangers shots on net, and allowed 3 goals.

The Islanders power play continues to click, but the Rangers unit remained scoreless.  They are now 0 for 11 this season.

The sinking Rangers have now allowed 17 goals over 3 straight (pathetic) losses.

But hey, Rick Nash scored 2 more goals to bring his total up to 6 in only 4 games.

The Isles on the other hand, remain undefeated (3-0) and moved into an early 1st place tie with New Jersey.
