In keeping the trend of saying the exact same thing and then having the Rangers win: This is a huge game. If they can keep good puck control and put a ton of shots on net, it would be a hard earned win against a fantastic team. Lets go boys!!!
Carolina got absolutely bombed by Buffalo last game, got scored on 8 times.
I'm expecting a much better performance from Carolina, you know Laviolette is going to have his group ready, playing another top Eastern Conference team and in Madison Square Garden.
Not to mention the return of Matt Cullen who is having a good year.
Things could get dicey for Carolina if the Rangers get off to a good start, because they havent been on top of their game lately. Rangers need to take it to them early and put them away when they get the chance.
Carolina can score in bunches and you don't want to re-ignite that offense. I don't buy that they "arent playing anymore" and just died. they are going to be a top team when its all said and done.
Rangers will also have to play physical tonight to take away some of Carolinas speed.
You couldn't have said that any better. There is no way that Carolina should be taken lightly, regardless if they were blown out by Buffalo in their last game. The Rangers have to play their A game tonight to have a chance to win.
