It will definitely be tougher against the Ducks and Pengies, but not a bad time for that test.

No doubt about it. I'm of the opinion that these were games they NEEDED to win. Now let's play some actual good teams.

Hank was Hank, Step, Hags, Kreids, and Zucc all with impressive games. Overall a great team effort.

Pyatt's 43rd offensive zone penalty was the only real negative.

Worst contract of the off-season. With Clarkson being a close 2nd.

Just a terrible contract to give to Clowe

I'd rather the Rangers win the games they're supposed to then to lose them.

Win streak.

Need to beat some better teams now. Ducks and Pens are going to be tough. A good litmus test.

I'd be happy splitting those games. Although being at home, two wins would be nice and it shouldn't be impossible. Anaheim is one of those western teams that really dominates at home. Still a good team overall. And the Pens are the Pens. Need Hank on his game for that one.

Was getting worried about Stepan, hopefully this is the confidence game he needed. Team looked rough till the first goal but coasted from there. We beat 2 crap teams in a row fairly dominantly. We're ready for better teams and the team is feeling good and confident. Feel bad for Hank, deserved a SO but still was fantastic.

I'm becoming more hopeful here. I know we're not playing the best teams here but the last three games we have gotten better and better. Hank has looked better, "dat line" is just wow, and Hags is back and firing on all cylinders. I think we're shaking off some of the rust and getting more confident. I have some hope here for this season.

I disagree on the Ducks, I believe they're a middle of the pack team and are playing way over their head. Horrible special teams will be their downfall.

Stepan started slow last year too. Everyone was down on him the first few weeks and then he went on to be the most valuable offensive player the rest of the way.

I wouldn't be upset if they lost both, but they have to play well. That's all. You can't beat every team, and as long as they are beating teams like Carolina and Buffalo dominantly, and losing to good teams strongly I will take that compared to the start of the season.

The wins against good teams will come if this team is legitimate.

Their PP will improve. It's been a bit up and down so far, but they're too skilled to be struggling this bad for much longer. They have two of the best, most unique players in the league and young depth throughout their lineup.

Stepan's holdout was the reason he started slow. He was always going to need few games more than anyone else to get up to speed.

Guy almost always starts slow anyway, sans his first game hatty (ironic). He's been getting a ton of chances the past few games, just was having trouble finishing. This hat trick could give him the confidence to go off,

Good to see them wake up. Lines are clicking and they're out working everybody, winning tons of loose battles.

The defense is playing great.

Hell yeah. Given up two goals or less six games in a row.
