Gorton: DeAngelo has played his last game with Rangers

"This isn't about one incident, it's not about one thing", Rangers coach David Quinn told reporters Sunday. DeAngelo posted 53 points - 19 on the power play - over 68 games last season, so perhaps another team will be willing to offer the blueliner a fresh start.

Igor Shesterkin made 25 saves as the Rangers snapped a three-game losing streak against Pittsburgh. Rooney has played a pivotal role in that penalty kill's success, stabilizing the unit and working hand-in-hand with Brett Howden.

On Saturday, the Penguins picked up their fourth win beyond regulation and second over the Rangers when Sidney Crosby scored 2:27 into overtime.

Chris Kreider scored the tiebreaking power-play goal with 8:50 remaining in the third period and the host New York Rangers edged the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1 Monday night at Madison Square Garden. "They were smarter and looked like a little hungrier team than we were in the third period". He continually wins puck battles on the forecheck, pestering defensemen and using his physicality to separate man from the puck.

But DeAngelo committed a bad penalty in the 2021 home opener and was benched for two games after that.

DeAngelo, whom the Rangers signed to a two-year, $9.6 million contract in October to avoid arbitration, had opened training camp shifting to his off-side on the left to play with Jacob Trouba as the Rangers' top defensive pair.

If the decision to release Omar Sheikh is not suspended, it will have serious consequences, he said. The attorney-general said that a notice must be given of the SC decision to the federation.

DeAngelo has one point in six games.

DeAngelo has been a mainstay of the power play offense for the past several years, first with the Arizona Coyotes for one season and then for the next three with the Rangers.

Despite the incredible fortitude displayed by the Rangers" roster during their third victory of 2020-21, the question of "can they pile wins together?' remains.

Rooney and Lemieux need to continue their stellar play, holding the fort down against what will surely be a hungry Washington Capitals team on Wednesday night. Defensively, the Blueshirts will have to be stout, with their forwards helping out in their own end every shift.

The news is just the latest blow to a Penguins blue line that is already battered by injuries.
