Bingo! Thanks for posting that information. We have been very fortunate as it relates to man games lost and people here tend to overstate the loss of a Staal and Sauer like it's the same as the loss the Pens have suffered without Crosby, Letang, J.Staal and Malkin(early on) and the ridiculous number of injuries the Flyers have had to deal with. This season for the Rangers is becoming strangely similar to our first season out of the lockout in 05/06. Let's hope we don't go into the tank after the all star break and then get knocked out in the 1st round.
