Is it just me or does Loffen always guess our score right whenever we win?

We were due for something good to happen anyway, especially after all the crap that transpired in Anaheim.

Staal was an animal tonight. Played with anger (I wonder why? ).

Him and the rest of the team really stepped it up physically. Not those tiny Brandon Prust hits that get credited, but huge hits. Boyle was really throwing his weight around. As was Doug Murray, good god.

Lundqvist was unbelievable.

McDonagh, for the first time in his career, had me at the edge of my seat during the 3rd and OT, and not in a good way. He was still solid overall though.

This team is the unluckiest franchise in the NHL. It's amazing. I have watched plenty of SJ this season, and the Dan Boyle that showed up tonight was better then usual. We easily are the team that most injured players return for. I honestly don't want things to go too well, because it's more then likely the hockey gods will decide another one of our best prospects in years should pass away.

Nice goals by San Jose by the way. Have the Rangers ever had more then one goal in a game like that?

Yeah, it was nice to see Staal play with a little bit of an edge tonight. If he would consistently play meaner he could take his game to another level.

CSN showed a closeup of Staal mouthing off after the tussle with Clowe. He wasn't a happy camper, that's for sure.

yeah, he was a trainwreck late in the game. Sauer made a really dumb turnover in OT as well.

Congrats on the win and thanks for keeping the Sharks from earning two points.

Hope Preds can return the favor by beating the Sabres on the 20th.

Why because Hank had a strong game? No one said he doesn't have great games. He needs to have a few every week and then we will turn the corner.

Great game for Dubi, the top 4 D and Feds.

I'm not sure who was worse, the refs or Brian Boyle. Next game Aves should be back in and Boyle should sit and watch. Both Prust and Feds played like warriors and Boyle was just awful (again). He needs a rest.

1. The POTG was Hank, I just wanted to vote for "the other" Dubinsky....

2. HUGE 2 points tonight. We needed that with Buffalo and Carolina losing in regulation and the Devils, Isles, Leafs, Thrashers all getting points.

3. Watching Thornton tonight makes me realize how much of a difference a true #1 center can be... maybe we do need a Brad Richards type player. I just worry about the money and trying to resign our RFA's with Drury and Redden still on the books.

4. Our defense is going to be really really good in a few years. Staal and Girardi are already solid. McD and Sauer could be a very good pair for years to come. Hopefully MDZ comes back next year with a vengeance and then we have Valentenko/Kundratek/McI/Pashnin or a veteran presence holding down the fort. I like it.

5. Is there any chance that the Rangers trying to block every shot is leading to all these deflection goals we're giving up? It's getting ridiculous to see all these pucks go in off our players. When Hank sees the puck, he seems to stop the puck.

6. I liked seeing Gaborik getting physical. He got physical behind the net cycling the puck that helped lead to EC's goal and I liked him standing up to Eager. I don't want him fighting, but it's good to see him with some "guts" and "jam".

7. Brandon Prust = Animal

8. I have been more and more impressed with Dubinsky and his ability to control the puck on the boards, behind the net, in the slot. The guy uses his body extremely well, protects the puck and makes the play. Think he learned anything from Jagr?

9. Bottom line: Big win. Huge 2 points. Gotta keep it going Tuesday against the Isles. You know they'll play hard. Have to match the intensity.

He only got about 7 minutes. Not a very good game. A strange miss on the penalty shot. The deke had the goalie fooled, but lost the puck. He barely played in the third (50 seconds), and was not on the ice in OT.... Probably was getting cold on the bench.... My guess he would have scored in the shootout if he had played more inn third and OT.

2 more lousy deflections. the rest was all hank

he looked completely in control in the shootout other than that filthy move(s) by boyle.

no doubt about it, tonite it was all henrik lundqvist.

huge 2 points, I am quite happy as this was a tough game against a very good and deep team
Pretty much this for me as well. The officiating was crap as usual. Well, McCreary was on the ice, so what would you expect? The deflection curse continues.

The TOI was low for his whole line.
While they are definately our most creative line, they are hte biggest liability defensively.
I dont think its anything they did wrong, but when San Jose is rolling the likes of-
Thorton-Heatley-Pavelski-Marleau-Couture-Clowe-Mayers-Eager-Wellwood

thats alot of skill and alot of muscle for zucca-step-wolski to deal with.

Henrik Lundqvist is something else. Please don't hate me for saying this, but as I told my buddy who I watched the game with, I still cannot believe that you guys did not win that shootout at the end of last year. He's a monster. I knew that the game was over when OT ended. Anyways, good luck and hopefully you get into the playoffs. I want to see what type of damage Hank could do. With Staal and Lundqvist, I think you are one elite center away from being a legitimate Cup contender. Maybe Brad Richards could be that guy. The depth up front, most notably down the middle, was the biggest difference between the Sharks and Rangers tonight. With that type of goaltending, you don't need much more offense.
