Good test tomorrow for the Rangers. Blues are a damn good team. Only 1 regulation loss on the season. We better be ready to play the same way we did on Friday. Clog up the slot, only allow perimeter shots, get the opportunistic goals. Now that we have Callahan back, we can get back our forechecking game. As always, LGR!!!!
Haha I like your guys' reactions about Conklin starting. Yeah Halak went tonight and has started 10 of our first 11 games so we gotta let him rest and get Conklin in there. He's a very good backup goalie but he's not Halak.
lol good luck to you guys tomorrow (well, today now but you know what I mean!)
Honestly, they are dodging a bullet getting Conklin, but that doesn't mean it will be easy. Half the reason Halak has been so good is because the Blues as a team are good. They are the Rangers playing their A-game, on crack. This could be a really good game.
Love watching the Blues. Halak has played like Halak did in the playoffs. Thankfully Conklin is scheduled to play tonight. Davis Payne hinted Conklin was getting a game this weekend. Halak played last night.
Three injuries on D with Jackman(knee injury-out 3-6 weeks),Roman Polak(a skate cut his hand/arm)and Coliacovo(concussion from Tootoo hit). They played 7 D last night. Brewer is healthy and playing well in the last season of his contract. Johnson is two years removed from his ACL. Peitrangelo is young. Like MDZ. Ian Cole from Notre Dame played last night. He's like McD. A Russian kid Nikitin from the KHL played last night. Like Pasnin. I heard JD on the radio talking about the Russian kid. He likes him. Tyson Strachan looks like Rozsival wearing #33 and being a righty shot. Then there Oysterick the former Thrasher.
They made two good depth moves picking up Sobotka from Boston this summer and D'Agostini from Montreal late last night. 8 good forwards with Boyes(struggling),McDonald,Perron(headaches),Backe s,Oshie,Berglund,Steen and McClement.
Rangers have zero excuses tonight. Blues 3rd game in 4 nights. Back to back road games for the Blues. 3 of their top 6 D are injured. Halak is not playing. Perron is hurt.
