Game 49: Rangers vs. CarolinaJanuary 27, 2009, by
Our beloved Blueshirts are in Carolina tonight in the first of back-to-back games against teams just outside the playoff bubble or just barely in the playoffs,
and first of a three game road trip(They are home tonight, oops). The Hurricanes are a relatively streaky team, they won 4 games in a row to start off January, then lost 5 in a row, and won 2 in a row before the All-Star break. They currently sit in the 8 seed in the East, with 51 points and are actually very similar to the Rangers. They are another team with a winning record and currently in the playoffs with a negative goal differential.
The key for the Rangers in the second half is playing consistently, which they unfortunately struggle to do. With yet another new lineup tonight, let’s hope they can play a solid 60 minutes tonight, instead of the solid 40 we are so used to.
Game time is 7pm tonight on MSG.
