Damn they sure have a lot of injuries...

Again the Rangers face a team who got blown out in their last game.

Last time these two teams met the Caps pretty much ran over Henrik all night and no one made them pay for it.

Lets see some toughness and some of that urgency we saw in the third period of the San Jose game.

I predict a shootout victory.

A little more injuries then the original post had listed.

Defenseman Jeff Schultz is out.
Defenseman John Erskine is out.
Right wing Chris Clark is out.
Right wing Eric Fehr is day-to-day.
Defenseman Tyler Sloan is day-to-day.
Center Sergei Fedorov is day-to-day.
Goaltender Jose Theodore is day-to-day.
Defenseman Mike Green is questionable.
Defenseman Tom Poti is day-to-day.
Left wing Alexander Semin is day-to-day.
Right wing Donald Brashear is questionable.
Center David Steckel is questionable.

Either injured or not 100%.

It'll be my first time back to my seats in over a month... I can't wait... Just have to put in a shift at work till 3, come home, get my stuff together and drive to the train station. It'll be a long day, but it'll be well worth it.... especially if the Rangers can win it in regulation. Play hard, play smart boys, but mostly, play for the full 60 minutes. oh, and hit Ovechkin every chance you get.

If they run Lundqvist as much as they did last game, and no one wearing a blue sweater does anything about it, I'll get off my couch, go to the garden and storm the ice to take out some Capitals myself.

I'm coming for you Brashear

Didn't Ovechkin and Staal really go at it last time we played Washington? I also remember Ovie was in somewhat of a cold streak when we played him last but he was dishing out hits all over the ice.

Stop predicting shutouts

Lets hope Semin and Green don't play.

Any kind of win will do. I'll be there in 215, second game this year, hoping for the first win.
