19 Rangers rise by shutting it down

NEW YORK — Say this for the Rangers: No matter how well or how poorly they’ve played at times in this young season, they don’t give up much. The stingy Rangers had allowed one goal or fewer in seven of their last nine games (going 8-0-1 in those games) with…

Click here for the boxscore with links to the game summary, etc. Thoughts: 1) That was a pretty spirited match for a non-conference game, you know, since we’ve seen so many passionless inter-conference games.
