The red-hot New York Rangers saw their five-game winning streak come to an end against the suddenly upstart Calgary Flames on Friday.

The Rangers, beginning a three-game trip through Western Canada that will end in Vancouver, lost to the Flames by a final score of 4-3. They fell behind in the first period by a pair of goals, but came back in the second to take the lead, including two goals in 39 seconds, before promptly surrendering it back to Calgary.

As far as the Eastern Conference standings go, the Rangers are still second in the Metropolitan Division. However, the Philadelphia Flyers, with their victory over the faltering Toronto Maple Leafs, moved to within a point of the Rangers.

“I don’t know what the scores are around the League, but guys should be frustrated with the way we played,” Rangers’ defenseman Ryan McDonagh told NHL.com afterward.

“I’m disappointed in the outcome for sure. I’m disappointed in the way we played, but it was the way we went about the game, just not taking care of our own end and not having guys back positionally and keeping pucks in front of us.”

    “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” … Corinthians 13:11

    Friends, I’ve been to Corinth in Greece ‘many’ years ago and I’ve walked within the hallowed ruins where these ‘revered’ words were first offered … and though I didn’t know it at the time then in my early 20′s, today I can fully appreciate the ‘true’ meaning of those prophetic words which I ‘thought’ were emanating from those aged walls …

    GO KINGS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    ps: the Jets are gonna ‘help us’ tomorrow night, whether they like it or not !

      No, I don’t remember that ? … because when I originally signed on with the Kings back in ’73, I believe that our team colors were ‘pink and black’ if memory serves me correct ? … do let me know if that wasn’t the case eh ? … thanks rat breath ! :)
