The Rangers’ storybook 2005-06 season gained another exciting chapter on Wednesday night, as the Blueshirts crushed the Islanders 5-1 in Uniondale, setting or tying three team records in the process.
No record was bigger than the one broken by Jaromir Jagr, who needed almost no time at all to leave Jean Ratelle’s 34-year-old Rangers single-season points mark in his wake. In the course of the first two periods, Jagr notched four assists to stretch the Rangers’ scoring record from 109 points to 113 … and counting.
University of Minnesota center Ryan Potulny has decided to skip his senior season after signing a contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Grand Forks, N.D., native led the Gophers with a career-high and national-best 63 points – 38 goals and 25 assists. He had at least one point in 30 of 41 games for Minnesota, which was upset by Holy Cross in the first round of the NCAA tournament last weekend.
