...welcome the the Eastern Conference Finals Rangers fans!!!!!!!!!
...now that's the intensity which was missing in Game 6. Amazing job on the forecheck as well which had the Capitals working hard in their own zone all night. But as always, the Rangers can never make it easy on their fans.
...i'm officially done saying Lundqvist hasn't put the Rangers on his back in the playoffs, because that's exactly what he did tonight.
...the legend of Brad Richards continues to grow.
...a Game 7 is never a bad time for Del Zotto to have the best game of his career.
...it looked like there was five Hagelin's on the ice tonight.
...Fedotenko wasn't on the scoresheet, but he might have been the best player on the ice.
...Staal was easily the best Rangers defensman in the series and that's saying a lot with the way McDonagh played.
...not sure I could have dealt with the Capitals eliminating the Rangers from the playoffs again.
...Rangers now 6-1 with Kreider getting double digit ice time. No problems with Torts sitting him in the third, no reason to take a chance in that spot.
...MSG was rocking tonight. Unreal job by Garden Faithful as always. Could tell players fed off the energy.
...remember when we were concerned about Gaborik in the first round? Me neither.
...man, the power play sucks.
...not that it matters, but still can't figure out why the ref waived off that Boyle shorty. Doubt we'll ever get an explanation.
...doesn't get any better than Rangers/Devils in the Conference Finals. Pretty sweet that the Rangers will have home ice advantage in all seven games. Any chance the Rangers are going to recall Avery?
...off tomorrow, then right back at it for Game 1 on Monday night.
