Welcome to the NYR Dupuis -- - -- -- - -
New York is expected to have Pascal Dupuis in the lineup after acquiring him Friday from Minnesota for Adam Hall in a swap of forwards. Dupuis had 10 goals, including two short-handed, and only three assists in 48 games with the Wild.
Not sure he is going to play. Why break up a good thing? We need to get on a role not worry about playing someone just cause we traded for him. The Rangers played like a team 2 games in a row this week and need to continue. 7-4 Rangers with Avery getting the Gordie Howe and Hossa scoring 2 more.
The Rangers are going to win tonight.Something like 12-2.The Rangers are going to win the next 27 games.They will have 111 points.They will their division.Getting back to the game tonight,the Rangers can win this game by just throwing their sticks on the ice.The Capitals should just forfeit the game.They have no chance.Start planning the parade route
I wanna see us play really defensive tonight. Challenge Washington to run the game. They would make allot of misstakes. Lundqvist is hot so I don't expect them to get any easy goals. We got decent depth through all lines and don't expect us to have problem to get on the board even if we aren't pushing for it.
Tom Renney said his plan was to go back with Henrik Lundqvist against the Caps unless the goaltender told him otherwise. Of course, Lundqvist’s legs could always fall off from exhaustion, which would likely mean Renney wouldd still go with Lundqvist, but he’d keep Kevin Weekes extra ready.
OK guys prediction time.... Who will Brashear get into it with first? Will it be:
Avery? Orr? Hollweg? Shanny?
I understand that we dont know if Orr/Hollweg are going to be in the lineup, but i'm just going on what was out there last night. Any guess's
