Heritage Jersey Highlights Rangers' Rich Tradition

NEW YORK -- Before the puck drops every night at Madison Square Garden, the fans hear a phrase so simple and yet so important to the men on the ice wearing blue.

"I am a Ranger."

As the franchise kicked off a week of celebrations for its 85th anniversary Friday night, players past and present reflected on what that statement meant to them as they gathered at the NHL Powered by Reebok Store on New York's Sixth Avenue and at the ice rink in Rockefeller Center a few blocks north to get the organization's birthday party underway. The highlight of Friday night's event was the unveiling and release of the Rangers' new Heritage Jersey, which will be worn for the first time when Original Six rival Boston comes to Madison Square Garden on Nov. 17.

As crowds bedecked in blueshirts packed both events, Rangers memorabilia on loan from the Hockey Hall of Fame, as well as game-used jerseys dating back more than six decades lined the walls, and the impact was not lost on the players who currently call the Garden home.

Coyptes send rookie Ekman-Larsson to minors

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Fifteen games into the season, the Coyotes still haven't found a way to string two wins together.

Now, they will have a new look on the blue line as they face their latest opportunity to get moving in the right direction -- against the Calgary Flames Friday night in the first of back-to-back home games this weekend.

Before Friday's game, the Coyotes sent rookie defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson down to San Antonio of the American Hockey League after his impressive early play tailed off. The No. 6 pick in 2009, Ekman-Larsson has 3 assists in 14 games, but has struggled mightily in the past three games -- taking overtime penalties in losses to Pittsburgh and Detroit and he was also beaten for the winning goal by Henrik Zetterberg of the Red Wings.

Capitals Winning Despite Poor Starts

The Washington Capitals lead the NHL with 12 wins -- not surprising for a team that won the Presidents' Trophy last season. Unlike a year ago, however, they're doing it the hard way.

Over the course of the season, teams that score first win about 65 percent of the time. But the Caps are doing it backwards -- they've got 12 victories despite being scored on first 12 times in their 16 games, including Thursday's 6-3 victory against Tampa Bay. Washington is 9-3-0 when allowing the first goal, a pace that history says will be impossible to sustain.

It's a big contrast from last season, when the Capitals were second in the NHL with 52 first goals (Chicago was tops with 56) and had a 38-7-7 record in those games. They won 16 of the 30 games in which they allowed the first goal -- the only team in the NHL with a winning percentage of .500 or better when doing so.
