I just realized we may get the secondary crew tonight because the Bruins/Hawks are on NBC at 12:30.
So hopefully no sixty-something year old jock sniffer with an on-line thesaurus who screeches like a schoolgirl every time the Rangers get scored upon.

In fact I think their secondary crew might be better than their primary crew.

Katie Carrera ‏@kcarrera 2m Philipp Grubauer will start for the #Caps vs NYR. It’s his 14th start in 20 games.

Grubauer was pulled on Friday in Columbus. Why do the Caps always have goaltending issues? Al Jensen. Pat Riggin. Pete Peeters. Bob Mason. Don Beaupre. Clint Malarchuk. Ollie Kolzig, Byron Dafoe. Semyon Varlamov. Tomas Vukoun. Michael Neuvirth. Braden Holtby. Grubauer. The decades change. Same problem. The Flyers and Caps.

This is another game the Rangers should win. It won't be easy but the Caps are playing terrible hockey. The Rangers are firing on all cylinders right now. The PP gives them momentum and feed off of that.

What are our numbers against Grubauer? Not good, right?

Yeah, hate to be a spoil sport but I can't get past that. Momentum comes to a screeching halt.

Oh well, let's go boys !

Nope, not good at all. The only bright side is that it is a small sample.

IMO we're a better team than the Caps and playing much better now. Barring luck or Grubauer (sp?) playing out of his mind we should win this game. I'll be really disappointed if we don't.

The Caps are playing terrible right now (means nothing) and we seem to have good mojo going. There's no real dire consequences to losing this one but I feel it's a big game for us. A win is a large step towards establishing believable forward momentum while a loss, though not negating the other recent positives, is a backwards step toward getting back on the seesaw. As long as we're on the seesaw, I would much rather be sellers, or at least not let Glen buy. I have anxiety about us being firmly entrenched in a race for #7-10 in our division and moving assets for some waste of a rental.

Every step we take AWAY from the seesaw, towards establishing believable progress the less anxiety I have and the more I can actually sit back and enjoy watching us win hockey games. Right now it's bitter sweet because I can't tell if we're just pretenders and it makes me cringe when we win games and I think of Glen licking his chops while he thinks of something stupid to do. Not because I don't want to win games. I just don't want to be stuck on the carousel. If we can keep this going though and turn it into a significant stretch and not just a small streak, it will be a lot easier to celebrate our victories and enjoy each game.

I agree, or at least I hope. Also hoping Stepan has another strong game.

I am counting on you guys to come out strong tonight. We need to hit rock bottom in hopes to get a new GM and Coach. It helps no one if you guy lay an egg and let a drowning team get a little air.

Rangers looking like a together squad. Only downside is the back-to-back.

They are fun to watch now. Four decent or better lines.

Stralman probably has the best shot amongst our dmen. I really wish he still had/used that slapped he had in cbus.

Kreider is still playing well despite not scoring. The guy doesnt get many passes from his line so hopefully stepan's big game in ottawa turns his season around
