STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: Once again, not good. Dave wrote earlier today about not panicking, and that we have the pieces for a successful team, we’re not just putting it together. No secondary scoring. Lundqvist isn’t as consistent as we’re used. If these parts come together, like they did in the beginning of the season, then you have a good team. Clearly, the Redden injury has hurt, as both games he’s been out have been disasters. We need a D-man to step up. Also, some secondary scoring would be nice. Okay, Rangers? Thanks

CRAZY THOUGHT: Ryan Callahan gets into another fight.

FINAL PREDICTION: Have a good feeling about this one. Not sure why. Rangers 4, Penguins 3

So, watch, discuss, have fun. But most of all, LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!!
