Our beloved Blueshirts travel to the Southwest, hoping beyond hope to score, and maybe, just maybe, win.
OPPONENT: Southwest Rangers (Coyotes)
LEADING SCORER: Shane Doan, 16-23-39
GOALIE: Ilya Bryzgalov, 2.35 GAA and a .920 save percentage
Brandon Dubinsky-Erik Christensen-Chris Drury
STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: I contemplated writing “State of the Blue-‘shits’, but after realizing that this a family blog, I decided against. (Yes, I know I did actually write out the curse word, so the family blog stuff is not really an excuse. But, I digress). The Rangers suck right now. Really suck. Can’t score. Can’t win. Don’t really feel like competing. Gaborik hasn’t scored in awhile, and you can see how bad this team is when he’s not producing. I’m not sure how they’ll play tonight. Maybe they’ll come out hard, and put some shots in the back of the net. Or maybe they’ll get blown out of the water. Who knows. The problem with this team is consistency. We don’t know what team is going to show up.
CRAZY THOUGHT: Gaborik scores (and you can tell the team is really floundering when your best player scoring a goal is a crazy thought)
ON THE iPOD: Careless, Amos Lee
FINAL PREDICTON: ‘Yotes 4, Rangers 1
So, watch, discuss, have fun. LET’S GO RANGERS!!!!
