I hate these Florida trips.
There's always a ton of optimism going in only to come out disappointed and pissed off.
I hope they get off on the right foot tonight, because not only is it 2 games in the sunshine state but they play the Panthers home and home. The results seem to be contagious with these two teams.
The Rangers should get at least 4 points out of the next 3 games, anything less than that for me is a disappointment.
With that said -
Tonight is a big test for Gomez, to see if hes got it back for real. The second game is the toughest. I want to see Drury be a little more patient and look for some open space instead rushing passes that usually turn into giveaways or busted plays. I also would love to see the Zherdev - Nazy - Dubi line raise it up another notch, specifically the relationship between Naslund and Zherdev. I felt they started to get something going against Phoenix but were a hair off as far as converting. Protect Lundqvist and be in front of whoever is between the the Lightning pipes tonight.
And last but certainly not least: KEEP SKATING.
Let's stay on the right track.
