I'm making this game, too. Hopefully the good mojo I brought to the Garden on Monday carries over.

My girlfriend probably won't be picked to be in the pedal cart race this time, though....

Let's just not blow any 5 goal leads.

I love the GDTs Karan, but may I suggest including the team's records and place in the standings?

Or get a canadian beat down like last month

I wont be at this game unfortunately, other obligations elsewhere but I'll be there in spirit through my car radio. I haven't heard a hockey game on 1050 or any station for that matter in almost 2 years now.

LETS GO RANGERS!

Hopefully they can build on the positives that came from the Pittsburgh game. Although I'm still pissed that Voros is getting playing time over Korpikoski, I know with Renney's system he's not going to change the lines for this game.

LETS GO RANGERS.

I'll be there tonight.

I've read some legends on HF about Montreal's fans invading opposing arenas. Anyone think they'll be out in force at the Garden tonight?

This Blueshirts really need to show some killer instinct & put away an injured Habs team. No excuses but get the job done with simple hockey for 60 minutes.

LGR!!!

Haha, I might make that line my signature. That could be the motto for the HF moderators too: "You troll, you get laughed at, we kick you out."

About the injury free roster... I have to say, apart from obviously being lucky, or perhaps I should say not being unlucky, one reason for Rangers having so few injuries is this team has such high standards when it comes to physical fitness. From all the reports we've read, Rangers have a higher standard than most teams.

I like these 7:30 starts...reminds me of the old days.

Anyway, for those going tonight, ignore those dumbass Habs fans. They bring huge Canadiens flags, speak French and boo our National Anthem....they're losers who should just stay home.

Habs

Be there, lets see another effort like Monday. Looks like a coaching (player?) adjustment with improved coverage in the defensive zone. Go Rangers!!

I think that when you have higher standards for physical fitness, it obviously helps, but sometimes its just plain dumb luck. The Habs had almost no injuries last year, this year we have them left and right. Nothing has changed in the way the players work out in the off season, sometimes all it takes is the smallest wrong turn or getting hit just at the wrong place. Tanguay's seperated shoulder is proof of that..players take hits all the time but it just takes one time to be hit just at the right spot on the shoulder to pop it out.
