The New York Rangers (23-17-4) defeated the Buffalo Sabres (19-20-6) by the score of 8-4, tonight. For a box score, go to Yahoo! Sports.
…only the Rangers could score 14 goals in two games and not look good doing it. Sort of a strange game with all the deflected goals and terrible goaltending. But as I said yesterday, two points are two points and watch out because not only are the Rangers gaining some confidence, they're finally getting some bounces. And those are two things, along with great goaltending, a team needs to make a long run in the playoffs
…i must have missed it in Page Six the other day. When did Richards get back together with Olivia Munn? Could be the ugliest four goals in a two game span in NHL history. But they all count the same and should give Richards a huge jolt of confidence going into the final week.
…i guess Torts blew it by not going with Biron in goal tonight. Hell, I could have played goal for the Rangers tonight and won.
…three points in two games for Clowe since I called him out. Who says these guys don't read the blog? lol
…when Stepan hits 50%, you know the Rangers opponent is awful in the face-off circle.
…2g, 3a in the last two games for Nash. Not a bad time to take his game to another level.
…what? No fight for Moore tonight. He really needs to take Del Zotto's spot on the second defensive pair.
…wonder if Stralman took Miller out for drinks after the game for basically handing him his first goal in 27 games.
…blow out win and Torts still plays McD and Girardi 25 minutes each.
…did the Rangers send Kreider back to the Whale before the game?
…you know the Sabres had an off night when even Pyatt shows up on the score sheet.
…Callahan proving once again he deserved the Steven McDonald award with a great effort at a big time to stop the Sabres run.
…the Rangers win eliminated the Sabres and Flyers from playoff contention and they could add one more team to their hit list as they can end the Devils hopes of getting back to the Stanley Cup Finals with a win again their cross river rivals on Sunday.
