Our Blueshirts are looking to right the ship after that disastrous third period against the Penguins on Wednesday. They are really going to have to work for it, as they are facing probably the best team in the East this afternoon. They still only have single digit losses (35-8-6) and just got Phil Kessel back from his bout with
the kissing disease mono.
The last time the Rangers faced the Bruins, we were treated to a very exciting 3-2 shootout win where two All Star goalies stole the show. You have the two possible Vezina finalists squaring off again today, and there’s no reason to think that this won’t be another exciting game.
IF, and I repeat, IF the Rangers can find a way to keep the fast paced Bruins from controlling the puck and the game, then this could end up as another win for the Rangers. That’s a big IF though, and Hank will need to be stellar tonight.
Update 1:00pm:Tuuka Rask in net for Boston tonight. He’s supposed to be the future in net for the Bruins.
