NEW YORK (AP) The New York Rangers honored Hall of Fame center Jean Ratelle by retiring his No. 19.A banner with his name and number was raised to the rafters at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night in a ceremony before the Rangers hosted the Detroit Red WingsRatelle had 336 goals and 481 assists in 861 games over parts of 16 seasons in New York before he was traded to Boston in November 1975 and finished his career with the Bruins in 1981. With the Rangers Mathew Barzal Jersey , he famously centered a line with Vic Hadfield and Rod Gilbert – dubbed the GAG Line for goal a game.Ratelle received a rousing ovation when he was announced and walked out on the red carpet on the ice, and then again when he was called up to the podium by Gilbert.”This is incredible,” the 77-year-old Ratelle said. ”It is an honor and privilege to see my sweater raised up to the rafters here at Madison Square Garden.”Ratelle, inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985, became the ninth player to have his number retired by the Rangers, joining Ed Giacomin (1), Brian Leetch (2), Harry Howell (3), Gilbert (7), Adam Graves (9) http://www.islandersfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-leddy-jersey , Andy Bathgate (9), Mark Messier (11) and Mike Richter (35).Giacomin, Leetch, Graves, Messier and Richer also attended the ceremony, while Howell and Bathgate were represented by family members. Some of Ratelle’s former teammates were also present, including Brad Park, Rod Seiling, Gilles Villemure, Bob Plager and their coach Womens Wayne Simmonds Jersey , 91-year-old Emile Francis.Ratelle still ranks second on the Rangers’ franchise goals list, third for assists and points (817), and sixth in games played. He and Gilbert are the only players in the top three on the team list for goals, assists and points.The GAG Line’s big season was in 1971-72 when they finished third, fourth and fifth in the league in points. Ratelle, who suffered an ankle injury late in the season, and Hadfield became the first two Rangers to reach 100 points. Hadfield was the first Rangers player to score 50 goals that season, with Ratelle’s 109 points setting a franchise record that stood until Jaromir Jagr had 123 in 2005-06.”I had the best seat in the house,” Francis said. ”The GAG Line was the best line in Rangers history, and Jean was one of the greatest players both on and off the ice.”Ratell was presented with a specially inscribed commemorative watch http://www.senatorsshoponline.com/authentic-bobby-ryan-jersey , a framed No. 19 game-worn jersey, and a custom set of golf clubs with a white bag with the Rangers logo on it.At the end of the ceremony, Gilbert announced the Rangers would honor Hadfield next season and raise his No. 11 to the rafters, Hadfield got emotional and the fans gave him a big ovation.When the Rangers skated out for pregame warmups they were all wearing No. 19 jerseys with Ratelle’s name on the back.—Follow Vin Cherwoo at www.twitter.com/VinCherwooAP— PITTSBURGH (AP) Matt Murray doesn’t keep track of the numbers, which makes it easier for the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender to not get caught up in them.His goals-against average? No clue. Save percentage? Nope. Pittsburgh’s record during an occasionally uneven regular season for the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions? Give Murray a phone and he’ll probably be able to look it up but otherwise he’s just guessing.”For a goalie, it’s not based on how many goals you let in or how many goals get past you or don’t or how many saves you make,” Murray said. ”It’s not about that. It’s about how you feel.”And despite a physically and personally draining six months that included multiple extended absences because of injuries and the loss of his father Jim in January, the 23-year-old insists he’ll be ready when the Penguins open the first round of the playoffs against Philadelphia on Wednesday night.”I still pinch myself every day I get to be a part of something like this,” Murray said. ”It’s so exciting. It’s like Christmas.”Even if Murray’s first full season as Pittsburgh’s firmly established No. 1 goalie hardly felt like a holiday at times. He missed two weeks in November with a lower-body injury.A concussion suffered after taking a shot off the mask in practice in February cost him another three weeks. He took a leave to be with his family following his father’s death, but returned eager to get back to the rink that he’s long considered a sanctuary.Murray ended up starting just 45 games and appearing in only 49 Chris Wideman Jersey , the fewest by the Penguins’ top goaltender in a decade. His goals-against average ticked up (2.92) and his save percentage ticked down (.907), both the worst marks of his brief three-year career.Yet the numbers don’t take into account the occasionally iffy play in front of him, particularly a penalty kill that finished a middling 17th in the NHL.Yet it’s not the missed backcheck or the inability to get a clear that people notice. It’s when the puck goes in the net.It’s also, however, why Murray declines to get caught up in his stats. Feel free to point them out. Just don’t be offended when he deletes them immediately. The only shot that matters isn’t the last one, but the next one.”Every single play, every single shift, every single time somebody touches the puck, everything resets,” he said. ”What happened before doesn’t matter unless you allow it to.”Something Murray rarely does Womens Craig Anderson Jersey , part of his preternatural maturity that led the Penguins to make the difficult but necessary decision to leave Marc-Andre Fleury – the winningest goaltender in franchise history and a wildly popular figure both in the dressing room and the city – exposed to Vegas last summer in the expansion draft.Fleury and Murray took a potentially volatile situation in the spring of 2016 and turned it into part of the foundation that helped the Penguins become the first team in nearly 20 years to win back-to-back Cups.Sending Fleury to the Golden Knights meant Murray entered this season without the specter of Fleury waiting in the wings should he falter. At times over the winter Murray flip-flopped between dazzling and dull, kind of like his team.Yet Murray just shrugged his shoulders when asked if he’s worried about his play or staying healthy. He has no control over the latter – there are no guarantees when you make a living willfully putting yourself in front of a piece of rubber hurtling at you at various speeds from various angles – and he’s not concerned about the former.Penguins coach Mike Sullivan has long placed value on Murray’s ability to not get overwhelmed by the stakes.There’s a reason Sullivan turned to Murray at every opportunity in the 2016 playoffs – when the then-21-year-old took over after Fleury was diagnosed with a concussion on the eve of the postseason – and again last spring even though Fleury played brilliantly at times while filling in after Murray sustained a lower-body injury during warmups before Game 1 of Pittsburgh’s first-round series against Columbus.Murray returned and after a wobble in the middle of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final against Nashville, held the Predators scoreless in Games 5 and 6 . In the giddy aftermath, Fleury passed the Cup to Murray, in many ways a literal passing of the torch from one generation to the next.There will be no debating this time around for the Penguins as they chase history. While Casey DeSmith picked up his first career shutout in the regular-season finale against Ottawa last Friday, Pittsburgh’s attempt to become the first team since the New York Islanders of the early 1980s to capture three consecutive Cups will depend largely on Murray.And for all his downplaying of the numbers, Murray is well aware of what having his name on the Cup for a third time in as many years would mean to both himself and the rest of Pittsburgh’s superstar-laden roster.”We know what’s in front of us,” Murray said. ”We know the opportunity is there for the taking. We’re here and now everything resets. For sure obviously we know what’s at stake.”—
