I have transformed into the Ultimate Rangers Fan: A Holy Monk of the Patience Order.
I will roam these boards and threads spreading my forced and faked patient and virtuous traits. It is only through these traits will we be able to find peace within what will be a season of hardship and potential heartbreaks.
Got a good feeling that the third and fourth lines win this one for us. Halpern gets one tonight, maybe Miller and Boyle, too. LGR!
Really hope so. This team needs a shot in the arm from them. I know Torts loves to get on the stars for games like Buffalo (and he has every right to), but it would be nice to get some secondary scoring ONCE in a while.
It'll bring this team together a little tighter as well. Its always good to see the bottom line gutting out a goal. Guys like Powe especially, need to start getting pucks to the net off of the board work and cycles they are putting together. Even if its from bad angles or from behind the net. There are opportunities for it each shift.
Throw it at the goalies feet. Get it to the points off the cycle and rush the net.
The focus can't just be board play and knocking time off the clock. They need to start building a net presence. It doesnt have to be perfect.
I'm going to stay positive. Reason's I think they win this.
They almost beat the Jet's once this year.
They haven't lost an 8 PM start this year.
They are are a scorching 2 - 1 - 1 following 1 goal games scoring 14 goals in those games.
They haven't scored 1 goal or less two games in a row all season. So they should at least net 2 and when the Rangers net at least 2 goals according to my calculations they are 13-3-2. That can't be right. That's almost like a legit reason.
