Gotta stay out of the box. Their power play is lethal. Even though we were 5-for-5 on the penalty kill last game, you don't want to press your luck against them. They may seem despondent, but they always play with a chip on their shoulder against us. Today is no exception.
Keep both win streaks alive: go for four and Isles continue to be win less at the Garden.
Their D is flailing. Drive to the net, hard. Don't be unselfish. Fire away. SOG is the name of the game. Fall behind, no worries: Isles lead the league with most goals allowed in the 3rd.
Last year on Feb 14th, Lundqvist played one of the best games of his career and we beat the Bruins 3-0. Interestingly I thought we played much better on Tuesday, but Lundqvist wasn't the superman he was in that game and they got more bounces than last game. I want to see Lundqvist get a shutout. Seriously we're superior enough to the Islanders for that to happen.
Today is Gaborik's birthday. 31. He was born on Valentine's Day.
Maybe he will pot a few tonight.
Actually Gabby has never scored a Valentines Day goal for the Rangers. However the Rangers have an extremely good record on Valentines and have lost only one Valentines Day (or day before/after) game in 7 years.
