The Rangers should on an 9 game winning streak. The Rangers played a solid 1st period against the Leafs and Gustavsson was afraid of the puck. Lundqvist played his worst game at MSG since his first season. Post Olympic break in 2006. The Rangers blew a 4-1 lead with 12 minutes remaining in the 3rd period against Ottawa.

Last night was reminiscent of Avery two years ago. If he can play that way consistently I can see myself warming up to him again.

40-50 years ago it would've seemed strange to see someone NOT wearing a fedora at the Garden. Check out some old photos. Two things that stand out to me are the hats and the ever-present haze of smoke.

Not to be repetitive but great win. Girardi really has played out of this world and it is gratifying to see him play this well. With the young defensemen we have, his name always seemed to be the first thrown into trade proposals for offensive help the last few seasons.

Avery was good in this game. Very subdued in the postgame, you would think we lost based on his tone. However, good on him and good on Torts for giving him the increased ice throughout the game. I thought he was our best forward through 40 minutes and deserved it. He can be a valuable member of his team even if he doesn't play this way every night. He does bring energy and good forecheck/skating.

Not that it necessarily matters because the team from a couple of years ago was extremely close and did not make the playoffs, but this team is tight and likes each other. The Girardi comments and Boyle's face when Dubi scored tells you that.

I would say that through last nights game he has been the most consistent Ranger game in and game out...I don't recall him having a bad game this season...but then again my mind isn't what it used to be

Interesting stat...of the Rangers 6 losses, 4 were by one goal (excluding Eng against Nyi), and 2 were by 2.

This team hasn't lost a game by more than 2 games this season. That's friggin' impressive.

Where has that Sean Avery been for the last 3.5 years? If he shuts his yap and plays like that, that's a player I don't mind having on my 3rd line.
Definitely. He was skating hard, getting in on the fore-check, and winning battles in the corners. He drew penalties not by agitating, but by hustling and moving his feet. While I do enjoy the agitating nature of his game, it's a double-edged sword where it could hurt the team as much as it could help. If he keeps his game simple like he did last night, I'm sure many anti-Avery people will come around and see his value. They might even consider bringing him back as a stop-gap at the league minimum, which Avery has stated he would accept.

If he can keep this up, I see no reason why he can't get ~12 minutes of ES ice time.

Avery as he was last night is a very solid 3rd line player with an offensive flair. That's how he used to play and that's how he needs to play.

Also I still can't believe how ridiculous Richie's pass to Danny G was. He held the puck on his stick forever and just psyched out every Carolina player around him.

Something I've seen the best players in the league do.

Not to mention, arguably OUR best player, Gaborik, shot terribly wide on endless great looks last season.

Yeah. My girlfriend was watching the game on "Rangers in 60" with me (missed the actual game due to a wedding) and I said, "watch this" and rewound the DVR about 5 times LOL

She had been asking me recently to explain what good puck movement looked like and why we paid to bring a guy like Richards in to do it. After that, she got it.

She's already pretty knowledgeable on hockey. Another lesson in the books.

First, I believe you mean 8 game winning streak. While that could be true, it isn't necessarily true. Everything happens after something before it happens. If we beat Ottawa, maybe we don't learn from it and go on a winning tear.

If Torts calls a timeout before Carolina's goal last night, do we go on to win the game 5-1, or win at all? That's my point, everything happens after previous things happen. If Torts calls a timeout, the game plays out differently. This is just an example.

So should we be on an 8 game winning streak? Hard to say, everything would've played out differently if we beat Toronto and/or Ottawa.

It would have been 9 since we beat Winnipeg the game before Toronto. Regardless, I do agree that things could have unfolded differently had we won those games so it's unfair to say the streak should be longer.
