Anyways, the Rangers never come through for the Islanders. Take 2 years ago: a Ranger win over Philly would've set up a battle for the division title between NYI and Philly on the last game of the season. The Rangers got destroyed, the Isles came up a point shy of the division title, and the Flyers were destroyed by Ottawa in the first round. Figures...
hell yeah balej is looking awesome. i thought he had that breakaway in the bag, deked biron out, fell right on his ass, but threw it right in his face BOINK!
congrats to pock. congrats to mess. balej 2 assists?
great to see some of the younger guys take control of the game. is anyone loving Josh Green? hes really looked great to me in the past few games ive seen.
and whats up with Jagr? hip flexor? doh!
Josh Green reminds me of a Grosek in the sense that here's a big guy with pretty decent talent that's done little to nothing in the NHL. He does seem to be putting it together here though, which could lead into some pretty nice upside.
On the Bur..Balej breakaway, I though Biron got lucky with the glove hand, but maybe it was his mask instead. Hard to tell.
Let Jagr sit and Balej take his icetime. He seems to really be flurishing with the extra minutes.
Pock is good...really, really good...to think last week he was playing college hockey and now he has 2 NHL goals.
