With an 0-for-4 effort Tuesday night, the Rangers' power-play problems continued. Since defenseman Keith Yandle arrived from Arizona at the trade deadline, the Rangers' power play is 1-for-10, with fellow defenseman Dan Girardi scoring the only goal in Detroit.

"We haven't had a lot of power plays since he's been here," coach Alain Vigneault said before the game. "We're working on it in practice, and we haven't had a lot of practice time, either, but I'm confident with him coming into our group, we're going to be all right."

In the five games against the Islanders, the Rangers were 0-for-13 with the man advantage. The other half of the special teams was superb, however: The penalty-kill was 4-for-4 and has allowed just one goal in the past 16 opportunities.
