One win in six games and a three-game losing streak isn’t how the New York Rangers hoped to start the 2017-18 season.
The Rangers have a lot of things going on early in the season and none of them are good. With losses to St. Louis, Columbus and New Jersey this week the finger-pointing has begun.

|Friday, 10/13/17||@ Columbus||L 3-1|
|Saturday, 10/14/17||vs. New Jersey||L 3-2|
Here are some of the highlights from the past week.

Saturday’s game against the Devils saw another forward erase the zero from the goals scored column as Rick Nash got the Rangers out to an early lead with his first of the year.

It’s A Power Play Goal!
The Rangers’ power play, which was once hot, has cooled off dramatically. This past week saw the team go just 1-for-10 with a man advantage and they’ve failed to convert on their last six chances.
Zibanejad remains the hot hand on a struggling team. He currently leads the Rangers in goals (five), power play goals (four) and is tied with Kevin Shattenkirk and Mats Zuccarello for the lead in points (five).
