Game 53: Continue with the good process

The post-Cody McLeod era in New York begins tonight, as the Rangers take on the Bruins. The Blueshirts have put together a good string of performances lately, controlling play and, for the most part, limiting scoring chances against. What doomed they against the Kings was lack of talent, which is what happens in a rebuild. The good process is certainly a welcome change from the December and January train wrecks.

The Bruins are trying to hold on to relevancy in the Atlantic, as Tampa has run away with the top spot and Toronto has made waves with deadline moves. The Bs train the Habs by a point in the standings, but they do have Tuukka Rask back after the unfortunate incident where Charlie McAvoy shoved Filip Chytil into him. He’s not starting tonight, but he is back.

      Like the B*’s back on Georgi , butterfly looks way cleaner vs the CCM set he was using!

    Yep Georgi looking good, DeAngelo looks mature and Zucc and Zib combine for the opening goal.

    Shitty , tired or not he quit skating when he got beat in the first !

    Rangers are playing too far apart as a result the Bruins are stepping in and picking off passes. Puck support boys kept skating.

    Shatty being lazy on the 2nd goal

    Delangelo with the staredown at the Bruins bench after scoring the shootout winner….priceless

      I think you spelled lameness wrong. Good game/win otherwise. Wish DeAngelo could stop being a jerk, he’s a good player.

    Damn, now that was a hockey game!

    That was really fun! A comeback. Yippee kayeeee! Really happy for Georgi who finally gets rewarded for playing well. He looked like he just won the Cup on that last miss! ?
