NY Rangers Game 24 Open Thread: Black Friday Tradition in Boston

Another Black Friday date with the Bruins

After barely holding on to a 3-2 win against Carolina on Wednesday, the Rangers travel to Boston for another Black Friday matinee against the Bruins. The Bruins boast the best top line in the league right now, and the way the Rangers play, they will have their hands full. This will be a track meet.

The Rangers are bad defensively, but they might actually have the high end skill to keep up with the Bruins. The depth, though, might not be there. We should, at the very least, be entertained for this one. Good way to deal with your Thanksgiving hangovers.

  • WOW!!

    Howden is going to be real tired by the 3rd period, if he’s centering 2 lines today!!

    Something isn’t right in the “lines “up there.

  • This is going to be a tough game for the Rangers. Hank will have to be at his best

    Pasternak is unreal, even with Bergeron out.

  • Know people who HATE this day……(They live in Paramus NJ ) ……..ME I at home watching the Rangers ! ……………..Lets Go Rangers !!!!!

    • Just saw live traffic map ………..Where Route 4 and Route 17 meet in Paramus is a parking lot stretching at least a mile or so in all directions (Local roads looked bad also )

  • I am expecting to see Fast on the 4th line with Bo and Smitty, they will also be on the PK unit. So far Chytil playing with Strome and Bread looks like a major ungrade. It will be interesting to see if the reunited Zib, Kreider and Buch line can produce like they did last season.

  • Can not do anything but look in the mirror here Rangers …………. Fate gave you opportunities in this game ……and you let them slip by .
