Rangers Fall 2-1 In First Preseason Contest
Cuts to Come

Bad penalties and inconsistency.

Sounds a lot like last season. Well, those bugaboos carried into MSG last night for the start of the preseason as the Rangers fell 2 - 1 to the Boston Bruins.

However, as with most preseason games, you aren't looking for team play so much as individuals that can compete at the highest level. Some players exemplified that. 

"As the game went on there were some good things," said Head Coach John Tortorella. "I don’t want to name names because I may forget someone but as the game went on I thought we played well. We switched the lines around a little and I think everyone contributed.”

Chris Higgins got his first goal, the lone score for the Rangers, assisted by tryout defenseman Alexei Semenov. 

"I thought he was one of our strongest players on the puck, especially in the second half of the game," said Tortorella of Higgins. "If we’re going to be a good team and a competitive team, he needs to be a goal-scorer for us, he needs to be a penalty killer for us, he needs to be a top six forward for us and he needs to accept responsibility for that. Tonight was a good sign.”

Matt Gilroy, who was interviewed by BB at camp, was a standout.He controlled the puck well, showed some deceptive speed, and never looked out of place.

"I definitely got chills, and to hear that first ‘goal’ song go off was pretty cool too," said Gilroy of his first game. "It was my first taste of this and I want a lot more."

Tonight the Rangers faceoff in New Jersey against the rival Devils. After the game, the team expects to make upwards of 20 cuts.

Who's on your list?
