Watershed game for the franchise tonight. Emerging Islanders vs mostly struggling Rangers. Sounds like a bad movie from my youth. The Rangers can not come out soft and docile tonight. They have to be hard on the puck from the moment it drops. Let's Go Rangers.
So glad the rivalry is relevant again. The last time we played an important game against the Isles was in 2007 when both teams were fighting for a playoff spot, similar to tonight's game. Hope it's a good one!
Hey guys! New to this board but have been hanging around HFB for some time. REALLY looking forward to tonights game although it means I have to stay up to 3:30 AM... Hoping for a strong showing from Hank and some allaround good hockey. Cheers!
Alright settle down there. Its important but its not like game 7 of the SCF....
I remember when Glenn Healey came over in 93, he said that to the Islanders it was always more than just another game...as a long time fan I can say that unless it's the playoffs the Rangers don't approach Islander games the way the Isles do.
