Obviously, I had a little extra juice watching last night's Rangers/Sabres game with the insertion of Brandon Mashinter into the line-up. So you can only imagine my excitement when he got into a scuffle with heavyweight Cody McCormick…
…damn, those two were throwing bombs.
…and there's the importance of having a guy like Mashinter in the line-up. Dorsett has had a renaissance since the Blues game, but he cannot handle a guy the size of McCormick.
…not only does that fight give the team a lift, it puts McCormick as well as a guy like Ott on notice that if they try anything funny, the Rangers have someone who is more than capable of handling himself.
…now AV just has to start playing him more than four minutes a game.
