Only watched the 1st 2 periods, but it was a very complete effort by the Rangers tonight. Everyone was flying, no bad guys here.
Bad: Florida completely demolishing the development of Gudbranson. He scored, but as has been the case for most of the season, he is struggling immensely. Not to mention he's still incredibly raw, the perfect candidate for another season in the O.
Redden: We can't let up after we score. The only negative about this game.
I have always been careful not to get my hopes up with this team in the past, but Im really starting to believe that this team is special and that we can contend this year. For a change, its good to be a Rangers fan, they are playing great hockey and winning games. Lets hope it stays that way for a while.
I'll tell you what: I know he's getting paid to score, but Dubinsky has been outstanding this year on the PK and in his own end.
Something tells me he is going to get white hot in the 2nd half, simply because he'll have gas in the tank.
I've been very pleased with the last three games from Dubinsky. His problem early in the season was that he seemingly refused to shoot. In the first 24 games of the season, Dubinsky only had THREE where he had 3 or more SOG. He's had at least 3 SOG in each of the last three games. That's the first step. If Dubi keeps shooting, the puck WILL start going in. It seems as if he's finally bought into that idea.
Great effort! Gonna be fun to watch this on Wednesday.
I think MSG got it right - Stepan, MDZ, and Eminger all had GREAT performances.
But so many others played well too, tonight was a team W. Even players who have had rough patches Stralman, Boyle, EC, looked good tonight. In particular anyone saying Boyle was bad tonight has their own agenda, he played a very solid game.
Was going to comment on the same thing. He was especially physical too.
The Rangers have at 4 players with at least 20 points on the season (Gaborik, Richards, Stepan, Callahan) and another with 19 (Anisimov). 3 players with at least 10 goals (Gaborik, Richards, Callahan), 4 on pace for 20. 3 of the defenseman are on pace for 35+ points (Girardi, McDonagh, Del Zotto).
This is offensive depth. Not just one player piling up the points. If Dubinsky can get going, this is going to be a VERY dangerous team, even more so than now.
SEEN YOUR VIDEO!
I'm really concerned about Dubinsky at this point. 1 goal in 27 games? Sorry but we aren't paying him 4 mil to only score 1 goal. He's starting to remind me of Higgins where he did everything right but score.
