Man that's some schedule over the next 3 games. 2 very hot teams and then the beast of the east. Hope they didn't blow all their luck on casino night cause they're going need it.

Read somewhere (Could be at twitter) that Zuccarello is going to be playing more on power play in this game, if we get it, with Gaborik...

Quote:
Mats Zuccarello will take Wolski’s spot at the point on the first power-play unit, and it appears that Michael Del Zotto -- who returns to the lineup tonight in the place of Steve Eminger -- will replace Zuccarello at one of the point positions on the second power-play unit.

“He has practiced real well and I think he’s getting more comfortable in being one of the point men,” the head coach said of Zuccarello. “In the past couple of days, Zuc has looked much more comfortable, so he’ll take Wooley’s spot there.”

Wolski is out? I thought he was just day-to-day? Is his rib problem that serious?

He only played like 4 1/2 minutes against the Pens, so he either has an undisclosed injury or Tortotella thought he did play that awful.

The pain from a rib inlury can be excruciating even if it's not that serious.

Anyone know what's really going on with eminger, it seams like torts is jerking him around because he doesn't know what to do with him. Personally I'd rather have eminger trying to get his game back than have girlroy who's been playing decent out there.

just looking at the pre-game notes, biron's numbers are a lot better than hank's against the kings. save lundy for NJ and Philly.

With the help we got last night on the scoreboard it would really be nice to start pulling away with 2 points here.

Like others have said I'd also go Biron tonight then Hank VS NJ and Philly.

Let's get a streak going here!

The other matches yesterday went our way, if we don't win on our own - we can look in the mirror and start the blame game...

Am I the only one who can't stand the idea of Zuc playing the point on the power play? He is not a threat to rip a shot from the back end, and if you dont have that threat on the point, the powerplay becomes a whole lot easier to defend against

Well, here we are again -

Caught up in the middle of the East bubble race. Honestly, about a month / month and a half ago I was reveling in the fact that we may not have to be as worried as prior years going into March and April. The Rangers were sitting comfortably above the playoff line with about a 10 point cushion at one point, maybe more. I honestly thought this year might be different. Then the injuries hit. Then the slump.

Fast forward to tonight and the Rangers are in dire need of separating themselves by a mere 6 point lead while having played 3 more games then Buffalo, a team gunning for that 8th, or even 7th spot.

I know the Devils would love to see the Rangers not make the playoffs, hell, I'm sure a lot of teams in the East and around the league would too. If the last few seasons are any indication, the Rangers won't bow out. They won't die. They won't let yesterday effect them. Not with guys like Henrik, Ryan and Brandon. They've been here before and they've failed only once, and by only one point.

Despite the precarious position they are sitting in, I still feel this is a different team then years past. Sure they are young, especially on defense. But there's an attitude I like. Theres a will I see in this team on a nightly basis that was lacking in years past, especially last year. That team didnt deserve to make it IMO. This team does. Very rarely do they not show an honest effort this season. The past few years it was a lot more common. Sure the mental mistakes are still there but you can live with that.

But now's the time to turn the corner. Now's the time to get that mojo back from earlier in the year. The injuries have healed, the reinforcements have arrived and have had some time to get back into game shape. The Rangers have had a good amount of well-deserved rest and have had spirited and focused practices. Now is the time to make a statement, to themselves, to their fans, and to the league - albeit one that might not get noticed with a simple two points at home, but one that's going to be extremely important for the teams psyche going into the last 24 games.

They are teetering on the proverbial momentum fence right now. After tonight the schedule heats up again. 8 games in the next 2 weeks. It's time to jack it up a level and make it your season. Take the guessing games and scoreboard watching out of the mind and just go out there and be as sharp as a tack. Now is the time and it starts tonight with 2 points. A strong two points. And while you're at it beat down the Devils tomorrow in their building and make them eat a slice of humble pie.

LETS GO RANGERS

Wolski (rib muscle) feeling much better today, still hoping to play tonight vs. #Kings. Says tomorrow vs. #Devils almost a definite.
