Hmm..

(Rangers Improved Defense + Mike Dunham) - (Gaborik and Dupuis Holding out) = Not many goals for the Wild.

I say 3-1.

Lundmark, Nedved and Carter for the Rangers. Brent Burns gets his first NHL goal for the Wild. We always seem to be scorched by rooks.

Watched the Wild/Hawks game on Wed. and the Wild looked out of it. They lost 1-0 looked like they really missed Gaboril and Dupis. A few more games like there season opener and Gaborik and Dupis will have them in a good situation to get their cash.

Well this should be an interesting game. One team that's all offense vs another that's all defense.

The loss of Gaborik and Dupuis has really taken something out of Minnesota. I watched them on Wednesday, they're still as hard-working and resilient a team as you'll find (even Daigle was busting his rump out there), but they seemed to be missing a certain confidence and swagger they had last year.

A lot of people thought that they would tighen up more defensively without Gabby and Dupuis, but I think the absence of those two and Ronning kinda forced them to open up, as everyone else needs to step up offensively to pick up the slack. Guys like Walz and Laaksonen can't focus solely on D anymore, they need to generate offense. They're powerplay looked horrid.


It looks like they got a good one in Brent Burns though, the 'experts' opinions notwithstanding.

If the Rangers come out strong, get on the board first, and play a full 60 minutes, they should be fine.

I see a 3-1 victory, two by Kovy, one by Nedved, with Brunette scoring for the Wild.

I predict a Rangers victory, but the Blueshirts had best watch themselves on special teams. The Wild's offense, while suffering mightily without Gaborik and Dupuis, still sports a pretty aggressive power play. The Rangers got killed with a combination of bad penalties and bad penalty killing.

Half an hour to go...Bring It On !!!

LET'S GO RANGERS !!!

Off topic, Fleury had a cold start to his NHL career. Eric Belanger scored a shorthanded goal on the first shot M-A Fleury faced in the game.

1-0 Wild.

To quote WFAN:

"The Rangers were running around, running around their own zone...the Wild had atleast 3 shots there before the puck went in on the rebound...."

Soooooo....looks like the system is in place and working like a charm ? Anyone watching the game, did it look as bad as it sounded ?
