...no matter how bad this team looks or how out of sorts they may seem you can never, ever count them out. Man I love this team right now.
...hope everyone was as ridiculously pumped as I was watching Stepan all fired up after his goal.
...got to give Biron all the credit in the world for hanging in there tonight. Thought it was over for him when the crowd was chanting for Lundqvist after the second goal. 6-2-0 on the season now. Not bad.
...LaBarbara played the role of Santa Claus tonight by giving Prust his Christmas present early this year. Wow that was bad.
...might be time to sit Del Zotto again.
...Frolov has graduated from the uneffective wraparound to the uneffective spino-rama.
...was it me or did Rozsival throw two awesome hits tonight? Nice Rozy.
...not sure what is going on with Gaborik right now, but he looks like he's really starting to get frustrated.
...another great game by Drury, which included winning some big face-offs late.
...i think Christensen is too good on the shootouts to be benched once Prospal and Callahan return from injuries.
...man, how awesome would it have been if Avery scored the game winner in overtime on "Vote for Avery Day".
...it's gotten to the point where it looks like the Rangers don't know what they're doing on the power play.
...off tomorrow then Saturday afternoon in Philly.
