After two straight impressive games in a row, the Rangers are back at it again, looking to get back on the winning track.
LEADING SCORER: Patrick Kane, with 27 points
GOALIE: Cristobal Huet, with a 2.24 GAA and a .910 save percentage
Marc Staal-Michal Rozsival
Michael Del Zotto-Dan Girard
Lundqvist will be in net.
STATE OF THE RANGERS: Not bad. Sure, they lost in pretty devastating fashion against the Wings, but they played really well, and outplayed the Sabres. Redden is back. Higgins and Callahan are starting to score. Drury has looked pretty good. So has Boyle. They’ve done a really nice job of forechecking. They’re playing sound defensive hockey. Just not getting the right breaks. If they play well enough for a good amount of time, the breaks will start bouncing in their favor.
CRAZY THOUGHT: Gaborik has a hat trick (although, that isn’t that crazy, isn’t it?)
ON THE iPOD: Inaudible Melodies, by Jack Johnson
FINAL PREDICTION: Rangers 4, Blackhawks 3
So watch, discuss, have fun. LET’S GO RANGERS!
