Rangers Watch: WSH 0, NYR 2

If you were tuning in tonight to watch Brendan Shanahan score his 1300th career point, you're too late. After a meticulous review, it was determined that Jagr's game-winning goal against Tampa nicked Shanny's skate on the way in. They're still looking at the tape to determine if Brett Hull's skate was in the crease.

So when did the Wild move into MSG? Defense and a couple goals earned the Rangers a 2-0 victory over the Capitals. Not quite the offensive juggernaut Glen Sather thought he cobbled together but two points is two points.

Tough break for Washington. John Erskine and Brian Sutherby take penalties in the same shift and it results in a 5-on-3 insurance goal for New York. Fedor Tyutin takes two penalties and it's a double minor, much easier to kill. Doesn't quite seem fair, but I'm not rooting for the Caps.

The Rangers' first back-to-back wins of the season give fans some hope. If they can beat the Devils on Saturday, New York's back to .500 - a do over of sorts - and hopefully we can pretend like October never happened.
