Three embarassing loses. This season is done without help from the outside.

Los Angeles - Shootout victory. Hank plays back to back, again plays well, again wins a shootout. Joe Micheletti tells us 4,000 times what a young, hard-working team the Kings are.

San Jose - We shock the hockey world with an OT loss. The Rangers fall behind early but get their skating legs back midway through the first, and then it's a very exciting game from then on.

The trip gives everyone ammunition. Pessimists point to three more games without a regulation win, optimists are happy with three points.
Its not even a prediction.

Implosion. Lose all of them.

Hank demands Renney leave as coach. Sather Fires Renney, Sundin signs for 1 million seeing Renney has left. They hire Wayne Fleming.

We win the cup...yay us.

We beat the ducks 3-2. PPG by Naslund. Goal by Drury! Dawes nets one. (That's just being hopeful lol.)

We beat the kings 5-1 in regulation.

We lose 4-2 in regulation to SJ. We try in the final minutes but they get the ENG.

Edit(Saturday 1:30am) - Change in heart... We beat SJ 3-1

If I've learned anything from watching the Rangers play for 15 seasons, is you can't predict anything with them. I can tell you what's probably going to happen on Det, or Pitt's next trip. What's gonna happen on our road trip? The real question is which team is going to show up.

Anaheim: They come into the road trip completely asleep and look awful. They get blown out without getting anything going offensively. The defense is once again nowhere to be found.

Los Angeles: They start out slow and fall behind quickly, but they come out strong in the 2nd period and eventually pull off a shootout win.

San Jose: They play the Sharks tough but still lose in regulation, some people will be happy with their strong performance but others will act as if the sky is falling b/c we lost to San Jose.

I'm hoping they take four to five points but in reality, I see them taking two to three.

Depends what team shows up.

We could run the table or just as likely get eaten alive, no telling with this team atm.

Predicting this team is like trying to predict your future great great grandaughters birthdate; fuggedaboutit

It depends on Sather. If he wraps up his dealing quick the Rangers may have a chance to come out and play as a team. If he drags it down all the way to freeze, so will the team do. As of now Rangers are in distress. Players do not know what tomorrow will bring... The only ones who's okay, are Lundqvist, Zherdev and Kalinin. The rest are not sure what happens to them. No good...
My prediction - two points total. I think Sather will drag it down all the way.

You think the Rangers can't beat the kings? but they'll take down San Jose . Just picture Detroit who just won the Cup and then went out and acquired Marion Hossa. Now picture a team better than that. That's what we'll be facing on Saturday night.

Yes, I do...because the Rangers are a very strange team you can expect very strange results

I predict 1 serious injury to the Rangers, with perhaps a second one of lesser worry.

3 regulations loses with an embarrassing blow-out by The Sharks. By the end of the trip Kalinin will be a - 23, Rozsival - 18 Drury - 10 & Redden with a - 9.

Beat the Ducks in a tight one, then lose to the Kings and Sharks convincingly.

As much as it pains me to say it, 3 losses.

Ducks and Sharks are simply better and the Kings, well we've seen how well the Rangers play against "Weaker" teams this year.
