Game 30: Rangers At Blackhawks

After two straight impressive games in a row, the Rangers are back at it again, looking to get back on the winning track.

OPPONENT: Blackhawks

RECORD: 18-7-3

LEADING SCORER: Patrick Kane, with 27 points

GOALIE: Cristobal Huet, with a 2.24 GAA and a .910 save percentage

RANGERS LINES:

Avery-Prospal-Gaborik

Higgins-Drury-Callahan

Boyle-Anisimov-Kotalik

Brashear-Christensen-Parenteau.

D-pairs:

Marc Staal-Michal Rozsival

Michael Del Zotto-Dan Girard

Matt Gilroy-Wade Redden

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!
