Game 35: Rangers at Flyers

Well, the changes worked. At least for one game. Benching Wade Redden and Ales Kotalik has, at least for one game, provided a spark to this team. Will it last? We’ll find out, today at 1

STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: Looking up. Granted, it was one game. But, with stellar play from Hank, and Ryan Callahan breaking out, the Rangers are beginning to look a little bit better. I do think that benching Redden and Kotalik helped. It sent a message to the team. It made everyone a little uneasy. I think putting Drury, the captain, on the 4th line was another strong message. Guys like Rosival are aware of what might happen. But again, it was one game. We would like to see this effort sustained over a stretch of games, not just one or two. But, a step in the right direction.

CRAZY THOUGHT: Rosival scores 

ON THE iPOD: Nothing. Watching MSNBC in hopes to get an update on this (nothing so far) snow storm. 

FINAL PREDICTION: Rangers 3, Flyers 2

So, watch, discuss, have fun. Can I get a LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!!
