Rangers wins and losses (reason for optimism)

Watching the Leafs lead the Habs 2-0, I thought of starting this thread. Here's the reason for optimism, here are our wins and losses:

Game 1: Bruins (loss): 1 regulation loss, and 1 OT loss. Maybe the best team in the east.

Game 2: Pens (loss): 8-4, has the best 2 players in the NHL. We just seem to matchup poorly with them.

Game 3: Bruins (win): See game 1. Guess who gave them that overtime loss. Oh and that's their only lost point on the road.

Game 4: Flyers (loss): Teams need to know how to play on the back to back, so I won't use that as an excuse. ****** loss. No excuse.

Game 5: Leafs (win): Let's face it they're not that great, but they've been playing some great hockey on the road. 5-1 on the road, including a win against the Pens. Guess who gave them that 1.

Game 6: Flyers (win): Decent win, but they were reeling. A win's a win. Especially in the division, always tough games. Would have been more impressive than 2-1 if Bryz wasn't amazing.

Game 7: Pens (loss): See game 2. Plus we were missing Callahan and Kreider.

Game 8: Bolts (win): Even after losing 3 in a row they have a league best +15 (didn't look at shootouts, which are included). They were 6-1 overall when we played them and undefeated at home. We're their only home loss.

Game 9: Devils (loss): Another candidate for top team in the east, 1 regulation loss. No Cally and Girardi.

Game 10: Isles (win): They're not that great, but they're competitive, started off playing very good hockey. Always a tough game against them.

So in 10 games we had 1 bad loss and all of the wins were impressive in one way or another. Hopefully when our schedule gets easier (not the next 2 games), we can go on a roll.
