Here's to Orr workin Goddard again and to a good road win. It won't be easy despite Pitt's depleted lineup. Expect more of what happened in Chicago and hope that the Rangers deal with it even better.

Keep the momentum going boys!

bad feeling about this game. They played great against Anaheim with pretty much the same lineup. The rangers are known for throwing games away when they are expected to win. Please stay out of the box.

4 penalites or more = 5-4 SOL
3 penalties or less = 3-2 win

The Rangers have a young lineup, kinda sick of hearing how the Rangers are big bad and old... while everyone else is young and innocent...

Staal - 22
Korpikoski - 22
Dubinsky - 22
Callahan - 23
Dawes - 23
Zherdev - 24
Girardi - 24
Sjostrom - 25
Prucha - 26
Lundqvist - 26
Orr - 26

That's 11 of our 20 regulars. 26 or younger.

Youngest team in the Atlantic Division... 6th youngest in the NHL.

And we also don't have the highest payroll either, that's another misconception... 14th (middle of the pack).

I hope Crosby plays. Beating a Cindy-less Pens team doesn't sound like it will give me that same warm feeling inside.

I'll be there in my Tyutin jersey, first game since Game 2 of the conference semifinals last year. Hopefully I'll have more to cheer about.

Now add Anisimov, Sanguinetti, Del Zotto and Grachev to that group...not too shabby.

I am thinking Potter makes it next yr or even at the tail end of this year. Anisimov will be ready too. I dont think DelZotto makes teh jump without going to Hartford and lets hope Sanguinetti does

they really have to cut salary so having some young bodies make the lineup is essential

Man the Voros and Rissmiller signings were dumb.I know they add size but their is depth in the system

any hope for Greg Moore or should they just package the guy in a deal?

Malkins good, but not the best in the world.

Favorite Jagr quote....“I want to thank Glen and Tom and the Rangers. I want to thank all the people who supported me. Being in New York was special.

“And I also want to say to the people like Mike Milbury who made their living by criticizing me all the time, that they can kiss my [butt].”

haha loved it!!!!!

Last year the 'Guins were 8-0-0 on NBC at one point.

Pens have a history of winning games on NBC due to usually questionable penalties in their favor. Some would say it's a conspiracy on the part of the NHL to get attention for the game by making Sidney Crosby a national celebrity. I'd say it's a coincidence and the refs are usually blind no matter what channel the game's on.

So the whole Chris Drury is bleeding everywhere but we're not going to call a penalty because we're all blind thing?

The run he went on last year when Crosby was out was unreal though. For whatever reason, he really steps up when Crosby is out of the lineup.
