Stepan is so hungry every shift. He's so smart though. He's very pesky on the forecheck. What a player.

The opportunity that Avery is getting with the team. How is he supposed to prove anything with 5 minutes of ice time?
It is interesting to me that the pro Avery crowd is using this argument. When it was MZA getting low TOI that same argument wasnt valid for some reason, and they were calling for Avery to take his spot.

Big game from the G.A.S. line (named via Mike Rupp tweet)

Lundqvist was also very sharp and made some huge saves to keep the Rangers alive.

5 in a row feels good and I hope the middle 2 lines can work themselves out.

As Rupp said, Gaborik-Anisimov-Stepan are now the GAS line.

I agree, to an extent. I honestly didn't even see many things the refs missed that should have been called. The only one I had beef with was Konopka running over Lundqvist and obviously the high stick on Gaborik. Maybe an interference at some point. It's just weird watching a game with so few penalties.

Stepan and Anisimov are total tweeners. Why do we even have them?

NYRfan68 said it a few minutes earlier. So either Mike reads these boards, or NYRfan68 is Mike Rupp...

Avery hasn't been noticeable but it's not like he's playing horribly either. I expected him to have more jump, though.

I'm an Avery fan but lack of ice time isn't a good reason as to why he's been so quiet. Deveaux has been making his presence felt with limited ice time. Christensen, however, is back to being invisible, huge shock there (cue the sad trombone music).

Lol, I beat Rupp on that by 4 minutes...
I coined it on the last page.

I thought that the Konopka thing could have been called either way. Konopka was going hard for the net and may have made contact anyway, but he definitely was aided by Gaborik's push. I've seen that kinda thing called and that kinda thing let go.

The high stick on Gaborik that went uncalled was baffling. I missed the hand pass as well, so I can't blame the refs too much on that one.

Someone else said it back in the GDT itself. That the gas line fueled the team. You lose.

The GAS (Gaborik-Anisimov-Stepan) line? They fuel us

I totally agree with you. Neither MZA nor Avery should be getting less ice time than Christensen or Deveaux

Rangers carried the edge in play, but I will chalk this one up as 2 points and that is good enough, even though I hated how it looked so lackadaisacal at times. They looked they were firing on 3 of 5 cylinders, or 6 of 8, or whatever.

Gabs Steps AA in no particular order. All 3 played very good hockey. Hank was solid. All in a all though not a great game.

We're not the wings, so not every game of a long win streak is going to be a pretty one.

End of day, 8-3-3 and moving up in the world. Time to go beat the 2nd best Staal.

1. Stepan - all over the ice
2. Gaborik - doing his job, getting in position and putting the puck in the net
3. Arty - doing the dirty work on the GAS line

HM: Hank, Girardi

Reality is Avery is going to be unnoticeable most nights. His contract will run out at the end of the yr, ahh well.

With that said he should be on the team. IF someone else goes down he could have an old school Avery night here and there

Feds has been quietly effective. Not scoring a bunch but he's reliable
