So, we're playing New Jersey.

Let's kick the **** out of them.

Bring it on. I'd love to wipe the floors with Marty's face.

I would love nothing more than to see him falter.

Maybe THIS will be the wake-up for the team that they have needed. I'm most likely making excuses for them, but who knows?

Getting embarassed on home ice and having to play a goalie who has openly talked trash on your team his entire career? If that's not motivation, I don't know what is.

We need Rucchin back.

We need Ruchinsky back.

Those are two KEY cogs that have been just so extremely obvious in their absence from the line-up.

So, what's the game plan?

Right now? I'd say to wake up first.

The Rangers are going to have their hands full and if they play the way they have lately it's going to be over real quick.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd MUCH rather play NJ than Buffalo or Philly...They're hot, I know, but in terms of offense they don't scare me. I know they have Gomez and Elias and Gionta, but after that not too much. Plus we'll have Rucchin and Rucinsky back, Henke in net...he played great for much of today until the team quit on them and I really don't think this Brodeur is as good as previous Brodeurs. Don't get me wrong, he's a great goalie, HOFer for sure and top 5 in the league right now, but Buffalo is way faster, more dynamic and much scarier...also, and I may get some heat on this, but Buffalo would have way more of a home ice advantage than the Devils...NJ is closer, there will be more Ranger fans there and the Devils sometimes don't even sell-out in the playoffs.
What do you all think?

Well the Devils scare me because they actually have the defensive players and goalie to shutdown Jagr. You know the Madden line is going to be all over him throughout the series and Brodeur is Brodeur. Pandolfo will be shadowing him every minute he's on the ice. And now that NJ has won the division, they have home ice and last change more than the Rangers, so it will be even more difficult to keep Jagr away from their shutdown line. Plus, they do have some offensive weapons that no one has been able to stop. Just look at Gionta. What an amazing season he has had. The Rangers second-line players are going to be the key in this series if the Devils are able to contain Jagr. I hope guys like Prucha, Rucchin, Rucinsky (when he returns) and Sykora understand that they must do their part because Jags can't do it all alone.

It's all you can hope for and possibly the only opponent that can stir the Rangers out of their coma.

I got tickets in section 232 for both game 1 and 5. I can't make the 2nd home game for the Devils, which sucks.

But yeah, I will be in a Cherneski jersey and have a beard so someone better say hi.

All I can say is wow, I don't know if any of you feel the same but if this series ends up in anything short than a sweep for a the devils I will be suprised. This team is on fire right now, they are a cohesive unit and the rangers haven't played as a team since February.

I've heard Friday because the Wings game will be Saturday and NBC wants Rangers/Wings on separate days.

This is what I wanted

the Devils in the first round (although I was hoping for home ice)

I think that catching them at this juncture is actually good. Can't expect thsi team to play that good for much longer as much as you can't expect the Rangers to play this badly for much longer either.

I like our chances.


LET'S GO RANGERS
