Everyone played fantastically but Dubinsky I thought had a super game. He was throwing the body all night, scored a goal and got a PP assist. The penalty on him was BS definitely. I thought Erixon looked good and I can't wait for him to fill out and get more experience.
This game should be great for our confidence. **** on all game by the refs, manage to get the win, and pound some Debbies into the ice? That should bring back our swagger.

Also, was it just me or was NBC's audio screwed up? Sounded like I was listening through a transistor radio.
It was the same for me too. It was better during the second period... but the first and the third were pretty bad. On the Youtube video of the fights from the main boards the audio was clear. Idk it was weird.
Our depth players stood tall tonight. Zuc was outstanding. Dubi and Cally had a strong game.
Hank struggled, but got the win. He needs to get into a grove.
Staal looked horrid for most of the game. He was getting beat constantly in the corners. His skating was not good. I think pairing him with Bickel is not a good idea. You can't pair two poor skating Dmen together. I know Staal's skating is not this bad when he is on his game, but its just hasn't looked good this season.
Del Zotto needs to start learning to shoot the puck. That pass on the PP was awful. He has a wide open shooting lane. If he shoots that puck low, that puck probably rebounds where he wanted to pass the puck to in the first place. If he wants to be an effective QB on the PP, he has to learn to make better decisions. I thought he was solid defensively though.
Gabs was horrible, the worst player on the ice for the Rangers. He made Hags look a lot worse than he was actually playing(I thought he was good aside from some defensive blunders). He needs to get his crap together.
I LOVE BEATING THE DEVILS!!
I agree with all of this. To add, Brodeur was out of position when MDZ passed that. He could have scored with a SOG.
