The New York Rangers (11-8-2) defeated the Philadelphia Flyers (11-12-1) by the score of 4-2, tonight. For a box score go to Yahoo! Sports.
…passion? Emotion? Heart? Who do these guys think they are the 2011-12 New York Rangers? Now this is the team we all expected when the season started. I didn't like that they were pushed around way too much tonight, but Rome wasn't built in a day.
…seriously? Were we really chanting "We Don't Want You!" to Nash last season? Dirty, filthy, Nashty.
…not sure I'd trade Callahan for any other captain in the NHL right now.
…never like to see a guy who has sustained a major concussion take a puck to the forehead/eye like that. Praying that Staal is ok.
…i guess it took a 19-year old rookie to jump start Gaborik, who was looking to shoot all night.
…speaking of that 19-year old rookie, Miller has looked like anything but during this home stand.
…three power play goals in the last two games without Richards. Just sayin'.
…assuming McDonagh was motivated by my post this morning suggesting he was fighting it this season. Your welcome. lol
…Boyle might be struggling to score this season, but inside the face-off circle he surely is not. 11-for-13 tonight.
…i normally don't like to compliment the other team, especially the Flyers, but how good would Simmons look in a Rangers uniform?
…eight points (4g, 4a) in the last ten games for Stepan should put to bed any talk that the Rangers would be better off with Ryan O'Reilly.
…since he wasn't going to see the ice for the rest of the game anyway, I wonder if Bickel threw that punch at Hartnell knowing he'd get tossed just to get a jump on his teammates for the good shower stall.
…until Hartnell punched him in the face on the bench, I had forgotten the Rangers had recalled Haley. Welcome to Tortorella's World, Mike. Where fourth liners go to die.
…i tell you what, if Staal has to miss anytime, I'm more than confident in Stralman's ability to take on the extra minutes.
…back at it Thursday night on Long Island.
