The Rangers will win 45-1. Everyone on the team will score a goal except for Michael Nylander who will rack up 19 assists and will take zero shots. The lone goal will come when Kevin Weekes, trying to get in on the scoring, fires a puck from his own crease, hitting the Crossbar dead center. This will cause the puck to riccochet back towards the rangers net. In the meantime, Weekes will have been so distracted by a hilarious joke told by Karel Rachunek that he will forget to make the save.
And Petr Prucha will hop on Nigel Dawes' shoulders to form the Megazord and fight the entire ducks team.
The Rangers looked focused on Rangers Gamenight. Anytime I've seen the Rangers this season they have talked and acted like Stanley Cup champions....Tonight they looked like they were in the right frame of mind. The best quote was from Captain Jagr who said "The coach will tell you different but it's more physical than mental"
The players know what the problem is....
I also think that if Weekes plays well tonight we are going to hear the words "goalie rotation"
I'm not saying I agree with that but you know it's going to come up in the media.
Anyone else a strong believer of the Sam Rosen Effect? That is the belief that when Sam talks about a struggling player he will automatically have a great night. Actually, it doesn't have to be about a struggling player, it can just be some obscure stat or something about the guy playing against NYR like Crosby having 2 ppg against us and he goes on to have 4 in that game.
Tonight for instance, not even 1 minute in, Sam mentions that Selanne hasn't scored in 10 games. Being a subscriber of the Sam Rosen Effect, I knew that Selanne was going to score at least 1 (probably a hat trick though in the end) I just didn't count on it happening so soon.
