...now that's what I call a successful road trip. Wins against two of the better Western Conference teams. I can't say it enough, man it's fun being a Ranger fan right now.
...here's to hoping MZA to Stepan...goal becomes something we're going to hear a lot of over the course of the next decade. I had a smile on my face for about 10 minutes after that one.
...the Biron signing continues to be the biggest off-season move.
...was that really only Avery's second goal of the season? Why did I start an All Star campaign for him? I kid Sean, third straight solid game from him. Please Torts keep him with Gabby.
...speaking of Gabby, the guy just can't buy a goal. He's getting closer now, which hopefully is a good sign.
...as good of a start Girardi had this season, I never thought he'd be in the All Star Game, but after these last two games I'd be pissed if he wasn't.
...thought McD (+2) looked a lot more comfortable tonight.
...Gilroy's continued solid play probably has fans excited about his increased trade value, which I think is ridiculous. Why would you trade a proven defenseman in favor of a lot of question marks. No guarentee MDZ rediscovers his game, it's only been two games for McD, Valentenko has no NHL games and McIlrath is at least two years away. Keep the kid and re-sign him for cheap this off-season.
...unreal game from pk, especially on the four minute high stick to Avery late in the third.
...couple days off then the Habs in town on Tuesday.
