Thanks Rangers for waiting until the final 10 games to play a good game (even though it was basically against an AHL team)

I've heard this mentioned a couple of times but I must have missed this. What happened with the two of them?

I will almost guarantee it was that.
Thanks for the info, I never caught that quote from Michael. I think you're right. Stupid of me to forget what a nice rest like that can do for a young guy playing his first 82 game season.

Really nice to see what I consider a resurgence.

Me, too.

This kid is going to be a 45-50 point d-man in the future for us who will learn to throw that nasty hip check more and more.

His defense has improved since the break, as well, which lends credence to the exhaustion aspect.

Rangers were pretty good...Islanders were absolutely horrific. that might be the worst game an opponent has played against us all year. Henrik didnt have to make a single tough save all night.

Lundqvist deserved a little stat padding after a season where he's been consistently hung out to dry. One more win till he has 5 straight 30 win seasons.

NEW YORK – It took them 73 games, but the Rangers have finally figured out how to crash the net. Unfortunately, with nine games to go and now five points out of a playoff spot, it may turn out to be too little, too late.

In the first 8:30 of the opening period against the rival Islanders, the Rangers got three goals and cruised to a 5-0 victory from there, outshooting the Isles 32-12 in the first two periods and 44-27 over the full 60 minutes.

“Sometimes it depends on who you’re playing, what type of defense they have, it’s tough to get in front of the net,” Henrik Lundqvist said after his third shutout of the season and 23rd of his career. “When you play Boston, they’re really good at boxing guys out. Tonight we had a lot of opportunities right out in front. It’s not always up to us. Sometimes it depends on who you’re playing.”

“We had the puck more. When you have the puck more, in practice we were just talking about our power play trying to find ways to manufacture goals,” Rangers coach John Tortorella said. “But that’s the biggest thing for us tonight is that we had the puck.”

As futile as this late effort may end up being...a good Icelander trouncing always feels good. Following that up with a solid win over Marty and the Debbies would make my week.

I agree, you can see the tools there every single night. It still literally amazes me that hes 19 years old.

He should develop into a poor man's Brian Leetch and thats no slight at all. In fact, its a very, very good thing.

Side note. I was at the theatre at the 3d viewing party. I gotta say it was pretty sweet. The overhead view was nothing special, but the on ice cameras were pretty sick. Charles Wang was there. I made sure to tell him the Islanders suck.

I don't really see Leetch in MDZ. More Zubov actually. I don't see MDZ with the end-to-end rush ability that Leetch had. And I think he'l develop a bigger shot than Leetch had.

Agreed. I had a conversation at the game last night with someone in our section about how he reminded us of Zubov. I'd happy if him and staal emulate Zubov and Beuk (bit of a stretch, but I think Staal can still develop into a really physical Dman).

Anyone see the fight up in my section in 411? It happened with 7 mins to go in the game just as the scrum broke out on the ice. Well here's what happened: I had 2 "Jersey Shore" crooked hat guys next to me and an Isle fan was leaving so they started chanting "*******" at him for no reason the guy was leaving quietly not saying anything. So as the guys walking out he yells back at them so then these 2 clowns run out of my row and up the stairs to the walkway area. The Islander fan had a friend who was a Rangers fan it turned out. Well it was a 2 on 2 for quite a while because security was nowhere to be found. One of the crooked hat guys said he was a cop and his dad was a sergeant. Finally security came but by that time the fighting stopped and and just threw out the Islander fan and his friend. I had so many idiots in my row last night, the guy next to me asked what number Zherdev is , and I tried explaining to him it would be better for the team to lose and get a lottery pick and he said well what's the difference between the 14th and 15th pick. I'm like hello idiot they're 3 points out of the 3rd worst record.

Obviously it depends on how he progresses, but I think he has more than 50 point potential. Some of that is going to depend on the team being better at offense (as a passer he needs someone to bury those chances he creates) but he has 32 points as a 19 year old rookie, I'd bet he finishes with 35 or so. Assuming he gets stronger, more confident, more used to the game, and generally just better, I could see his totals jumping a lot.

Can a moderator please tell me why the short thread from last night about the 3D viewing party has disappeared? I'm seeking feedback from people who attended the 3D viewing party and don't want to start a new thread if it's going to be deleted or closed.

Thanks.
