Recap

THREE STARS OF THE GAME

1. S. HORCOFF -- VAN
2. J. JAGR -- NYR
3. S. GAGNER -- VAN

NOTES

* Alternate Captain Brendan Shanahan returned to the lineup after a one game absence due to a sore neck. He led the Rangers with four shots on goal, but suffered a left leg injury after a third period collision with Edmonton’s Dustin Penner. The exact nature and extent of the injury is not yet known.

* Edmonton native Jason Strudwick was in the starting lineup after being scratched in five straight games. To make room for Strudwick in the lineup, defenseman Marek Malik was scratched.

* Scott Gomez earned an assist on Chris Drury's goal late in the third period, and has now recorded points in 14 of the last 15 games.

* Jaromir Jagr also picked up an assist on Drury's goal, giving him points in 8 of the last nine contests.

* Defenseman Paul Mara played a strong all-around game. He had three shots on goal to go along with a team-high three blocked shots.

* Defenseman Michal Rozsival logged a team-high 26:42 worth of ice time.

* The Rangers remained winless this season (0-5-2) against teams from the Western Conference.
