NY Rangers Game 32 Open Thread: Alternating wins and losses?

The Rangers seem to like alternating wins and losses

The Rangers wrap up their west coast road trip today in Anaheim, seemingly trading wins and losses over the past few games. That of course does not bode well for this afternoon’s game, but it’s only a recent trend. The Ducks are not good though, so maybe that bucks the trend. Of course the Rangers have a habit of losing to bad teams, so…it’s still a toss up.

The Blueshirts’ lineup is not something set yet, as there are potential injuries to Brendan Lemieux and Marc Staal that make them both game time decisions. The Ducks don’t really score much, but they still have John Gibson in net, and he’s capable of carrying this awful team to wins they shouldn’t get. Sound familiar?

  • When I watched MSG’s replay of the last game I heard Sam Rosen say ” The Rangers need to put some wins together ” he later said in a slightly unhappy voice ” Lately they have been in a win-one-lose-one streak “. He is correct GOTTA put wins together and build a nice winning streak …………. LET GO RANGERS !!!!!
