I believe we are a better team than Atlanta. The Devils are the Devils and not only do they own us but in a rivalry series like that anything can happen and it takes so much out of you. That's why I really wanted to play Atlanta. All we need to do is steal a game down there and come home and have a 3-1 lead baby. I'm actually going to be rooting for the Fishies tomorrow. It would be really exciting all of us being in it.

Careful what you wish for, but at the same time I for one DID NOT want to see the Devils in the first round.

I hope Vinny and CO. destroy them though i think their goaltending will have to come up big to beat them.

As far as Atlanta goes, it should be a fun matchup. Maybe the best for the Rangers IMO. Both play similar skilled styles and if the Rangers can get the ball rolling against them i think we can see some good things.

LETS GO RANGERS!!!!!!

They have nearly 30 more goals against their team than we do. We play our defense, we win this series. Virtually identical in goals scored for both teams, so I think the offenses are about as equal as can be.

LET'S GO RANGERS!

I just bought two tickets for the first playoff game in Atlanta. Now I got to figure out how to get there.

Its crazy that here we are 20 minutes ago rooting for Atlanta to win and now they are our worst enemies and we want them to lose every game here on out.

Actually the headline's will probably read..

"A-Rod win's it for Yankee's in biggest sporting game of night".. and then up at the top of the paper, you might see something like "Local hockey team to play in playoffs vs Braves?"

Thrashers don't scare me. Our offense is pretty much equal to their offense, and I give us the edge on the defensive side of things. If we play solid D and Henke continues to shine, then we'll take this series. Just glad we don't have to play Brodeur.

Atlanta had a dominating start to the season (12-3-3), faltered a bit, then got Tkachuk and played much better.

Since their hot start, they are 31-25-8 with 179 goals for and 197 goals against.
