Hoping for a win against the Bruins, would really help the Rangers get back to their winning ways.
I disagree. Hagelin has been playing his best hockey thus far. And he fits well with Rick Nash. Hagelin can retrieve pucks very well, which we already know, and so it opens up the ice for Nash a little bit more. Plus I think Pyatt does a similar job playing on Gaborik's line. Pyatt does all the board work for Richards and Gaborik, then can stand in front of the net to screen goalies while a sniper like gaborik picks his spot. And I wouldn't call Gaborik's goal a snipe the other night but you did have Pyatt parked in front of the net for the goal.
The lines complement each other well.
Anyways...we win this game and the next 3 are at home against who have been subpar teams thus far this season (NYI, WSH, MTL). I normally never look ahead but you can just see a streak lining up for this team to really take off if they can take tonight's game.
