Game 42: 7-2, 6-1, 5-0….what’s next?

The Rangers are in action tonight in Vegas after losing their previous three games by a combined score of 18-3. Based off how this is going, the Rangers are going to give up four to Vegas and find a way to score negative-one goals. Anything is possible.

Tony DeAngelo is back in, but Adam McQuaid is still dressing despite better options being available. Brendan Smith comes back out, and boy could anyone have predicted just how bad that signing would have been? Sure there were detractors, but even they couldn’t have predicted this.

Maybe this will work?

    Dispite the bonehead elbowing penalty during the Coyote game…skinny Smith was not the Rangers worse dman. Nonetheless it’s good to see Delangelo back in the lineup. I think we will see a better effort by the Rangers tonight. They still won’t win but the loss would be as ugly.

    Heading ro the game Leather? I filled all my prescriptions!

    Looks like Delangelo might be out of the game after taking a vicious hit on the numbers into boards. I guess he should of rolled around the ice like he is paralysed like a AV player and drew a major.

    Shattenpants missed his check…Vegas up one nil.

    Mcquaid lowers the boom on Patch… retribution…ole time hockey..I am not sure where Staals partner was when he missed the net with the shot but that’s a bad breakaway to give up. I like the Rangers effort in this one they just can’t catch a break

    Well that was at least better. Decent 3rd. Shrug…

      If ADA could ever keep his head on straight, him and Skjei have some chemistry as a pair.

        The kid took a dumb penalty there, no doubt. He has to keep those emotions under control.

        When he was in there at the end of the game he was making things happen offensively.
