Ottawa has won 4 straight. They will be in the WC hunt. That pick of theirs belonging to Anaheim isn't going to be as high as it was looking a few weeks ago. Anderson has won five straight. When that guy is healthy and playing well,Ottawa is a good team. They were a playoff team last season. The Rangers have 1 regulation win at home in their last 11 home games. They blew a great opportunity in December to rack up the points at home. On Monday night,they got off on the wrong foot on another long stretch of home games. The Rangers were lucky to get a point. The Flyers had a 6 game road trip after Christmas. 5-1. Colorado was their only loss. Skinner has taken off in Carolina. The Rangers top guys are hit or miss. Nash perked up his play playing in his hometown Toronto and against his former team. Richards has 1 goal in 11 or 12 games. Stepan hasn't scored in how many games. Callahan is just returning from the knee injury. Zuccarello and Kreider shouldn't be your best players. Lundqvist seems to give up 1 bad per game which leaves the Rangers with no margin of error. Even when Lundqvist is playing at the top of his game,the team is a borderline playoff team. They receive great goaltending but are battling for the last two playoff spots. The team has scored the 2nd fewest even strength goals in the NHL. Their PP is much improved. If that PP goes cold,the Rangers will struggle to score goals. Its the same problem every year. We need to score more goals. Sather brings in Nash but they don't have space or a spot on the right side to keep Gaborik so it becomes a wash. The Rangers need more transition from their D.

Rinse. Spit. Repeat.
