The Rangers dropped their second straight losing 5-0 to Owen Sound Thursday.
It was the usual suspects doing the damage. Forward Kevin Hancock had two points (and now has 14 vs. Kitchener) while goalie Michael McNiven posted his second shutout - and sixth win - against the Rangers this season.
The inconsistent play is beginning to frustrate some fans.
Here are a few comments from my inbox/blog comments section:
"There has been no effort these last few games. That is unfair to the two young goalies we have playing right now."
"The Rangers could have/should have been an elite OHL team and perennial contender in the same way as the Knights. Sadly, there is no reason to believe this possibility is on the distant horizon. We are now nine seasons removed from a Championship."
"I am also at my wit's end regarding the preparedness of the Rangers being ready to play and maintaining an effort for the entire game. This season, I can likely count the number of games on one hand where the team played hard for 60 minutes."
