Sigh, another game where I can't fully cheer for one team. I thought I would be sad to see the Jets move to the West next year, but at the time I really didn't realize how much I actually hate games where I cheer for both teams. I want NYR to win this one, but in OT!
Pretty good win last night. But some lucky breaks with the referees I might add. I do not see how the Rangers got a 5 on 3 from the 1st period fight??? I will take it of course - but it had a profound effect on the game imo. Cally should have gotten an instigator - at least - to even things out. And 2 penalties for the same offence??? One or two of the other Canadians penalties were also questionable - but so were a couple of later "compensentory" calls on the Rangers. But all in all I think the refs had a part in the win. Which really hurts me to say as I think we get shafted 70% of the time... And I dislike refs because of this.
We looked a bit shaky on D (and in goal I surprisingly will add) with Sauer gone for most of the game. MDZ (and Eminger) surprised and both had very good defensive games imo. MDZs goal was a beauty & "The Brich" had a nice clutch goal.
Regarding tonight - expect to see the same lineup but with Biron in goal. Would be great to get 2 more points here to close out the homestand. Jets have some key players out - as do we. Expect to see a highscoring game. 6-4 maybe - with Gabby (2), Richards, Stepan, Boyle and Girrdi with goals. A fight or two as well.
Oh - and this week was nice with only a 5 hour time difference between Poland (where I am currently) and NYC. Now back to 6 hours again. Kinda sux...
