If they split this road trip theyll be 2-3-2 - 6 points
Not the end of the world considering they've traveled 16,000+ miles in 4 1/2 weeks.
Im just looking for them to get their game together, and getting into good habits, win or lose. If they come back with at least 4 points im happy. It would be a good start to take at least 1 out of there tonight.
I would so sign for that right now. Get us to MSG with that.
By the way, anyone else dumbfounded how ridiculously well Higgins has seemed to fit in here? Not to mention Weise finding a spot on one of the best teams in the NHL and not being able to crack our 3rd or 4th line grinders...
I think Canucks fans are just as dumbfounded as Rangers fans. Higgins has been terrific since day one and has been one of our better players in this young season. Not sure why but I guess he's just found the right team at the right time.
Weise hasn't done much so far to be honest but he seems to have a surprisingly heavy shot and he's working hard. It's unclear whether he'll stick over the long run.
Those of you expecting a loss shouldn't. The Canucks, and especially Luongo, have had a well documented history of horrible Octobers and this October is no different. They have yet to play a decent game this season and it sounds like the Rangers are sharing their penchant for bad penalties as well.
I expect a close one tonight that could go either way. Looking forward to seeing that top line for the Rangers, Richards is one of my favorite non-Canucks.
Good luck and *%#$ you for '94... still not over it.
