Im hoping that Torts didnt bog them down too much with system stuff. Let them just play again and slowly work it in. Its a tough opponent on the road and its easy to get caught up in the whole line matching crap. I've always felt that when you focus too much on that it can prevent a team psychologically. Play a hard road game, continue the good pace. Leave it at that.

I'm also looking for the leaders to step up in this one, including Clowe. The Rangers need to get a little nasty in this game and really start to hammer into people. I think the room has gotten the shot in the arm it needs, now they just need to take another step on the road.

I'm going to be watching a few guys tonight, obviously the new additions but I'll also be watching Hagelin, whos game has been a bit off and Pyatt who I think needs to start asserting himself more, especially on the road and in a lineup thats tougher after the moves.
Other teams need to know that playing the Rangers will no longer be easy. Assert their dominance like they did last season. Don't get pushed around.

I am really excited for tonight. A great win or deflating loss is ahead.
