How do you think Zucca will fit with Avery and E.C?

I think he'll do fine..

From some tweets I read yesterday, they tried the line in practice and zucca and a few others stayed after the practice to train with Lundqvist..

That's determination..

Ooh, a 7pm game for us, nice. As has been said before, I subscribe to the early game + Montreal = bad. This team blows chunks in that building.

IF MDZ can find his offensive game, he's a huge boon to us right now. Yes, other guys have been better all season, but Del Zotto at his best would be huge for us and I think thats what Torts is hoping for right now. He knows what he has with the other guys.

I'm probably the only person to think this, but I'm glad EC is back. He's the only decent playmaker we have on this team. And he can somewhat set up a PP. He should help our passing game.

You're right , you shouldn't generalize ; I wear my Ranger jersey at the Bell Centre & I've never had a problem with anyone. I think every fanbase has their a-holes some more than others (like PhillY). Anyways feeling confident with Biron in nets.

granted it is a fourth line, but im excited to see what avery-ec-zucc can do together, the more i think about it, ec and zuccs passing and avery's passing for that and avery's constant pressure on the forecheck...zucc's speed, ec's creativity...if they find chemistry on the first few shifts, i could see that being a 1st line fast...at least for this game...

HUGE GAME!!! need to win to show we still are a playoff team.

Not the only one, I'm glad he's back.

Would rather Eminger to MDZ though.

our fans can be just as annoying. i actually left the game early on thursday night for the first time ever - i was sat next to some rangers fan punk who every time clarkson got the puck would stand up and shout "f-ing f**got" or "f-ing h*mo". the ushers did nothing. there was a bunch of other stuff he was doing too. i couldnt take it any more and my wife was getting upset by it. in canadian areans they are generally a lot more welcoming of opposing fans - even in montreal.

anyway - let's go rangers

Wow, Drury out?! This could spell the end for him. Maybe torts has been using Jedi mind trick?

Torts: "Drury, your knee hurts"
Drury: "Yes, yes it does"

You're missing a step.






Torts: "Drury, your knee hurts"







Drury: "Yes, yes it does"

Anybody see Tonya Harding around MSG in the last 36 hours...that could well explain Drury's sudden knee issue...

80% of the fans here don't really know much about the league. They only know about the schcabs. Most of the poeple in the arena wouldn't even be able to tell you chicago won the cup last year. You guys may think i am crazy, but i live here, trust me, these are not sports fans. Montreal is about as big a sports town as edmonton or winnipeg but with a much larger population, And thats pretty sad.

I'm with you on that one. I like E.C a lot. I think he's a solid, under-rated guy who does a lot of things right... Let alone his shoot out abilities. I got a good feeling about that 4th line tonight. He's clever with the puck.

I'm very open to the idea of keeping Christensen in the roster over Drury right now. So this "knee injury" probably came at the best time, so we can get a look at what Christensen has in his tank.

Don't have a good feeling about this game...never do when we play Montreal. Nevertheless, Let's Go Rangers. Can't say I'm too excited though.

Our odds in the shootout just went up with EC in the line up.

EC-Zucc-Wolski. I like our chances there.

As for the game. Must score on the PP!!

Okay I'm not talking about the Isles and Leafs. The guy said Montreal is not a very good team, meanwhile they beat us twice, are in playoff contention, and get extremely good goaltending.

It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever for someone to say that Montreal is not a very good team, but I most definitely think the Rangers can beat them.

Biron was great for the latter part of the Devils game i hope he saved some of that for today cause its going to be a whole different animal with the habs.
