- Lots and lots of turnovers as the Rangers didn't build off their win over Nashville nearly as much, if at all, as they would have liked.
- This was the first really frustrating PP game of the season, though Martin Jones definitely deserves some credit for saves he made in the first two periods. The Rangers kept drawing penalties and giving themselves a chance to tie the game or keep it close but they couldn't convert.
- The Sharks spent part of the game pressuring the Rangers in all areas of the ice and then were content to sit back defensively and make the Rangers try beat five players in the neutral zone or just inside the blue line.
- This was a so-so game for Henrik Lundqvist. He should have stopped the second goal and his puck handling mishap on the fourth goal put the game pretty far out of reach for the Rangers.
- All in all the Rangers need to be better from top to bottom. They need to be sharper, execute better, get better goaltending and score on the PP. With Arizona and Montreal coming up, two teams that seem like they are in even more disarray than the Rangers, the Rangers can hopefully start getting things back on track.
What's next: The Rangers host the Arizona Coyotes at Madison Square Garden on Thursday at 7 p.m.
