they better not sleep on this team. i knew the panthers were gonna be competitive but nowhere near this level, they are the feel good story team in the league. i had a feeling they would have been a 8th-10th place team IF everything went right. now i would personally rather see them make the playoffs than the leafs. as for us, if we think we are a good team, this is a game we need to win. this year im looking for more consistent streaks. for example we just won 7 in a row then lost, now it would be very nice if say we could even win another 3 in a row (4 would be sweet) before our next loss. that would prove we took a step up as a team. LETS GO RANGERS!!!!
So you used to be a Rangers fan and are now a Panthers fan? What happened?
Moved down to south florida in 95. Still come up for a game a year. Flew up for my avatars retirement game. Have had seasons down here for 15 years now. Have center ice and follow blueshirts most games.
I fully expect the Rangers to come out strong for the first 10 minutes or so. They are going to want to show that last game wasn't the norm.
If they can find a way to pot a goal in those first 10 minutes then I think they will have a good game. If they don't get a goal then FLA will start to catch up and it may be another struggle this game--even if Jose Theodore is in goal.
I predict 4-1 Rangers. Richards, Girardi, Fedotenko, Gaborik, Versteeg.
