While i agree it is a huge game for us and pivotal in the standings, you have to remember we play Boston 2 more times after this. So, it is not the end all be all.
I think I just love beating the teams we are competing most with in the standings. The teams that are the most talented and highly regarded. Philly was near the top for awhile leading up to the winter classic. We just kept beating them. It has really made the difference in the separation between where we are and where Philly is currently in the standings. Same will probably be the case with Boston as to who finishes 1-2. Just keep winning season series. Take another in Boston before you play both of the remaining two at home in MSG.
bad feeling about this one, i'm sorry to say. i'm feeling like it's going to be a blow out. goalie change and everything. i just hope the rangers keep their composure and move forward. a bit of a gut check. but i have faith in this team. just a bump in the road.
