STAT OF THE GAME
After dominating on the power play against New Jersey, the Rangers were 0-for-3 with the man-advantage at Detroit. On the other hand, their penalty killing was a perfect 4-for-4. That included a long 5-on-3 late in the middle period.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

The value of having Martin Biron as a backup goaltender was evident for the Rangers in Detroit, as he made some Henrik Lundqvist-like saves in the second period, stopping 14 of 15 shots over his final 20 minutes of action.

THREE-STAR SELECTIONS BY NEWYORKRANGERS.COM
No. 1 star 1. Sean Avery
Got the Rangers on the board with even strength goal at 8:35 of the first period. Avery led the team with four shots and logged 13:25 of ice time.

2. Ryan McDonagh
The former University of Wisconsin star certainly didn't look like a rookie as he led the Rangers with 24:43 of ice time and also blocked three shots.

3. Martin Biron
Turned aside 19 of 22 shots and made the kind of saves that most teams don't get from No. 2 goalies.
