Four Thoughts: 12/22

1. There’s one really odd thing about comparing this season to last and that is the mirror image of how this year’s team and last year’s team has panned out so far. It’s safe to say that this slide really began on Black Friday (pun intended) in Boston when the Rangers gave up two quick […]

The Force Did Not Awaken The Rangers Last Night

So last night instead of doing my usual… get home from work, watch the Rangers game, write 400-500 words about it and go to bed around 2 AM, I chose to see Star Wars, because hell, I could’ve made an open thread about the freakin’ movie and it would’ve generated way more interest than the Rangers’ […]
