...when your team is full of grinders and rookies there are going to be times when you go through scoring slumps. Especially when your only real sniper is completely lost. So I'm not going to get too crazy right now. I think if they can get Gabby going the whole team will get energized and the goals will start coming.
...love the never quit attitude but this team has to be ready from the drop of the puck or they're never going to beat teams like the Flyers and Habs.
...not sure benching Gaborik is the way to go. He doesn't seem like the type of player who responds well to it. I guess we'll see.
...last night it was MZA from Stepan, tonight it's the other way around. Looking forward to that combo for years to come.
...Drury may be playing his way to the press box once Callahan gets back.
...Rangers are now 1-3-0 since trading away Rozsival. Just sayin'.
...power play is just dreadful right now. It's like Perry Pearn is running things again.
...i think most fans would have liked to have seen the goalie rotation reversed this weekend. But does it really matter when the team isn't scoring?
...McD the only + defenseman with a +2.
...Avery knocked Carle the F out!!!
...seven shots each for Boyle and Stepan, maybe Torts can room Gabby with those two on the next road trip.
...off until Wednesday when the Maple Leafs come to MSG.

Yes. Yes. A thousand times, yes.
