Rangers need to score first. Oh so important in this game.

Not expecting good things tonight.

Maybe because they're defending champs and the best team in the league again?

The Hawks give their fans a reason to be happy.

That's not our problem, that's the Rangers' problem.

the hawks roster is down right scary. they have 3 guys who are better than our best player and they have 3 of them !! wait.... we have "best player" ? uh.... who is our best player again ? oh right, the little norwegian. so sad.

i expect rozy to score tonight just to irritate me.

if we lose by less than 2 its a win for us. hows that for lowering the bar.

oh how things have changed.... used to be we always had a chance with hank in net, now i cringe when cam doesnt start.

The Hawks are the Hawks but they haven't been so hot the past 13 games (i.e. not completely dominant). I think we have a legit chance to win this, assuming we can score on more than 5% of our shots - which is a stretch.

I don't know if we'll win or lose, but I think it'll be closer than everyone thinks.

Please dismantle that 3rd line or Zuke will end up a healthy scratch in five games. It's not working. Didn't work at the start of the season, and don't work now. Why set our top producer up to fail?

If you exclude McDonagh it's more like 6

Of course their GDT is jovial, their team is the ****ing mother-****ing Blackhawks. They just finished one of the best calendar years in the sport's history.

Because we apparently have to shoehorn Callahan into the top-6 whether he has earned it or not.

We also have to put our best goal scorers on the same line for some reason.

The only reason I see as to why Zucc should be on the third line is that it would likely be even worse without him. Put him back in the top 6 and we have two really good lines and one bad instead of one good and two OK ones.

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash - Really good
Kreider-Richards-Zuccarello - Really good
Pouliot-Brassard-Callahan - Not that good

vs

Kreider-Stepan-Nash - Good
Hagelin-Richards-Callahan - OK
Pouliot-Brassard-Zuccarello - OK

I prefer the former over the latter. Apparently AV does not.

Before so many of you jump off the ledge, know that the Islanders beat the Hawks last week.

This is what the Rangers GDT always look like. Place of happiness and crushed dreams

What I want to see tonight...

Continued good puck possession from the Zuccarello line.
Solid counter-attacks from the Nash line which involve the other forwards.
More of Kreider driving to the net.
Better play from Stralman.

Both the Devils and Islanders played very competitive games against the Hawks recently. Why would you say we can't. Rangers 4 - 2. Empty Netter for Brian Boyle.

He's been great most of the season but the CBJ game was probably the worst he's played in a while. And not just because of the turnover.
