MANHATTAN -- It hasn't been the greatest of seasons for New York's two HFNHL hockey clubs this season, certainly not like it has been for the Devils across the Hudson. But when the Rangers and Islanders play, records get thrown out the window. The Isles had the Rangers' number earlier in the year, putting them in a hole to start the season that they never really recovered from. Tuesday night, however, the Rangers handily beat their crosstown rivals, 5-1. With this being an Isles-Rangers game, there was of course bad blood between the two struggling teams. Rangers GM Sean Gaffney vented after the game, "Boogaard was out there running around trying to take some heads off. That just shows how classless of a player, and I use the term player loosely, that he is." Derek Boogaard played only 7 minutes, but had 18 minutes in penalties out of the team's 20 total penalty minutes. Included were four minor penalties (including a double minor) and a 10 minute misconduct. Just after Cory Stillman scored to make it 3-0 in the first minute of the 2nd period, Boogaard took a run at defenseman John-Michael Liles only to be met with a high stick to the helmet. No one was injured on the play, but Liles was sent to the penalty box. Ethan Moreau made a run at Islanders goaltender Nolan Schaefer just after starting goalie Martin Biron gave up the fifth Ranger goal and was pulled from the game. A lengthy scrum followed, but only Moreau was penalized for interfering with Schaefer. "I don't care who you are, you don't go into a game determined to seriously injure somebody, but that's exactly how Boogaard came out from the opening faceoff. Its obvious Hasnain [Jessa, Islanders GM] and the "Fishstix" coaches sent him out there with a purpose," continued Gaffney in his post game rant. "If that's the way Hasnain wants to do this, we can play that game too." These teams meet two more times before the end of the season in what should be interesting games, even if these teams are toward the bottom of the standings. Both games at Madison Square Garden.
