STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: Looking up. A good win against Buffalo. Higgins scored. Callahan scored. Hank was terrific. Avery played well. They played a pretty flawless game against a pretty good team. Now, they will try to build upon this against a struggling, or underachieving, Red Wings team. Without Marian Hossa, this team is different. The injury to Johan Franzen hurts them, and my fantasy team. They aren’t the same team as last year, but they are still pretty good. The Rangers will need to play a similar type game against the Red Wings as they did against Buffalo. Solid defensively, strong in net, timely scoring.
CRAZY THOUGHT: Ilkka Heikkinen scores
ON THE iPOD: September, by Kalai
FINAL PREDICTION: Rangers 3, Red Wings 1
Watch, discuss, have fun. Most of all LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!
