Rangers have 12 ROW in 21 games.

THAT is a huge indicator of how well this team has played. No ******** shootout wins - only one.

I'm starting to get that "special" feeling...

Hagelin
Not quite their full roster, but I'll take the win.

Love the kid. He'll break out. I think Torts' message has come across.

Torts wrongfully made him the scapegoat of the two losses, after Dubi played his two best games of the season.

He'll be back.

Disagree. That was Anisimov and Girardi.

MDZ was pedestrian/below average. He had that 1 bad giveaway but also done couple nice things out there.

We are all wondering the same. The comments about the strength of his defensive game go only so far, I think we can all agree. That's just trumping something up in an attempt to make us forget the elephant in the room.
Exactly. He isn't getting paid peanuts anymore, 4 mil he has to do a better job scoring.

Thank you Shanahan, you DO love the Rangers.

Gaborik, Callahan and Richards the stars for me. Honorable Mention to Hagelin, another monster game by him.

The Good: The goal explosion and so many players stepping up to the plate and delivers tonight. That we managed to score multiple PP goals.

The Bad: Anisimov, Girardi and MDZ playing some weak hockey tonight. Dubi contnuing to be invisible.

The Redden: Our 5 on 3 is horrible. The turnover to the 3rd goal was horrible. That we didn't manage to shut the door when we have the 4-1 lead.

Ugly win, but we'll take it.

Nothing like only being two points back and playing four less games.

The Good: Mitchell, Gabs, Brad Money, Cally, Hags
The Bad: Last 6 minutes. Bad goal to end 2nd period
The Ugly: I would not be fazed if this was Anisimov's last game.

Meh....one dumb giveaway by MDZ, but a killer pass to Gabby for the GWG. He played physically and did fine against some very good forwards. Pittsburgh has forwards that can make a guy look bad.

This is how you know Michelletti is a homer.

He's saying Girardi "is great, once again."

It was probably his worst game of the season.

I disagree with the Girardi was bad tonight crowd.

We're used to him shutting everything down. He did as good a job as we could have expected against 3 very, very dangerous lines.
