They're gonna try and make a statement against us for sure, losing all 3 so far and the Mike Smith fiasco last game, don't assume 2 points tonight.

No more Melrose? I'm looking forward to seeing Stamkos get 45 minutes of ice time.

I want to see them come out against Tampa like they did in Prague. Would also love to see Zherdev pot a couple of goals for his efforts tonight, and of course The King remain atop his throne.

Lets Go Rangers!

Mike Smith is day-to-day with a leg injury, expect Ollie or Ramo.

Smith was rested vs the Devils so he could play the Rangers, and he is going to have to play, as Kolzig is playing like **** and Ramo has been sent back down.

A team that has scored less goals than us and has an even worse PP? How is that even possible?

But of course we will struggle against them. Please prove me wrong.

Sweep?

Mike Smith is out. Yatzi! Should be a win, but you'll never know, maybe Kolzig will stand on his head again.



LGR!

I hate these Florida trips.

There's always a ton of optimism going in only to come out disappointed and pissed off.

I hope they get off on the right foot tonight, because not only is it 2 games in the sunshine state but they play the Panthers home and home. The results seem to be contagious with these two teams.

The Rangers should get at least 4 points out of the next 3 games, anything less than that for me is a disappointment.

With that said -

Tonight is a big test for Gomez, to see if hes got it back for real. The second game is the toughest. I want to see Drury be a little more patient and look for some open space instead rushing passes that usually turn into giveaways or busted plays. I also would love to see the Zherdev - Nazy - Dubi line raise it up another notch, specifically the relationship between Naslund and Zherdev. I felt they started to get something going against Phoenix but were a hair off as far as converting. Protect Lundqvist and be in front of whoever is between the the Lightning pipes tonight.

And last but certainly not least: KEEP SKATING.

Let's stay on the right track.

kolzig has always played well against us (especially at MSG)...i' wouldnt expect anything different. Even though the score indicated a pretty fair beating the last game the vinny line went berzerk every other shift. Ordinarily most coaches would try and match lines and use the home ice advantage, not ours, therefore we saw vinny just murdering rosi and kalinen all night long...id expect much of the same tonight, lets just pray Hank keeps us in it.

I've been working for Jim Martin down in GA for the past two weeks, and I haven't been able to catch any games. I'm psyched to be back home tonight watching the game!
