Don't think fighting has a place in the game? That was the best start the Rangers have had in a looooong time. The entire team came out fired up and ready to lay the body, but call outs to Dubi, Hagelin, Cally.

Shout out to the unsung heroes, that often get a lot of HF guff. Stu Bickel for a heck of a fight and strong game at D. Brian Boyle I'm sure is catching flack from people on here about not converting on Zucc's pass or the partial breakaway. But he played a great game defensively, and won some big draws tonight.

It may not have been pretty, but that is playoff hockey. Gritty effort, the type they need to build on.

POTG was Hagelin for me, with Dubi a close #2.
Boyle just doesn't have the hands. He tries his ass off.
Frankly when Arty comes back, I'd love to see this:

Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Stepan-Callahan
Mitchell-Anisimov-Zuccarello
Prust-Boyle-Rupp

Fedotenko deserves some rest.
Also if we sign Kreider, I'd like to see Prust get a few days off before the playoffs...
