LOL at the main boards... "Rangers will miss Gomez, he was their best forward against the Caps in 2009." It isn't 2009 anymore! This team has changed a lot since that playoff matchup.
I'm eager to see how Gabby and the kids perform in the playoffs. Staal and Girardi were a mess against the Caps in '09 but they played well against Ovechkin this year. They haven't been playing great lately but I think they will be super-motivated against Ovechkin.
Fedotenko scored some big goals under Torts with Tampa, maybe he can recreate some of that playoff magic. Drury looked like his old self today and I'm hoping he can come up with another clutch performance.
All in all, I'm just thrilled the Rangers are in playoffs. The rollercoaster of emotions for Rangers fans this week would put Charlie Sheen to shame.
