Game 15: Aiming for four in a row

The Rangers are back at it tonight, taking on a woeful Montreal team that, like the Rangers, is fighting for a top pick. Well, that’s what we thought we would be saying, but Montreal is 8-4-2 and surprising a lot of people thus far. The roster isn’t that talented, but they are winning.

As for the Blueshirts, they are winners of three in a row and going for their fourth tonight. Brett Howden is out, but Lias Andersson has been recalled to take his spot tonight. It’s like missing out on the Lexus but getting the Audi, at least in terms of prospects. Between those two and Filip Chytil, the future down the middle looks bright.

    What a goal by Pionk…Loved Vesey in this game

    Best thing about this game is they finally won without Hank or Georgi having to be the best player on the ice. Great 3rd period and holy smokes what a goal by Pionk…

      Good stuff …. I like Chytil’s game but he certainly is skating around waiting on a hit …. maybe the first couple he got this season with his head down has him thinking a little too much.

    Even the most negative Ranger fans will have to admit that was an impressive comeback. Not just the 4 unanswered goals, but the type of goals/plays — saw some truly elite plays from Pionk and Mika, plus Tony D’s goal was a subtle crafty little move. Despite the first 30+ minutes that was one of the more enjoyable games I’ve watched in a while.

    I don’t know if this all sticks, but the last 4 games evidence the type of mental toughness we saw in the 1st half of this decade.
