Here's a thought. How about putting Gaborik with Stepan and Nash and putting Hagelin with Miller and Callahan. A little more balance. Maybe gets Callahan line going. Step and Nash maybe get Gaborik going.
Can't say enough about Stepan. 4 points. Calling out all you Stepan haters (is O'Reilly a distant memory yet?)
seeing good things tonight, huge 5 games coming up.... all playoff teams and need to get points without giving any up
I like Cally with gabby. Or Miller with gabby. Keep Nash and step together, screw around with the other lines.
As good as Miller has been, the Miller, Gaborik Callahan line has been quiet. Small stain on what has been otherwise a great game.
Kreider is really playing with confidence. Looks like the trip to Hartford has really gotten him going.
So what game is Biron getting... with a ton of big games coming up, I would have to guess at Montreal... his 4.5 gaa there being the main factor
Hopefully this gives them some confidence, but the Flyers have not been great this year. Rolling into Ottawa is always fun...
Maybe taking Richards off the top 2 lines has taken some pressure off of him so he can regain his game and confidence.
@rangersfan just keep step and Nash together. That needs to be the one definite. Outside of that, experiment all you want.
@rangersfan steph haters? uh, really? where? sure, he wasnt moving his legs in the first 3 games but went from 0-60 in no time at all.
@ATCRyan Torts "Are you kidding me.... 8 points... we dont do that here. You guys wont be together again for awhile!"....
@AnnoyingJoe have to agree with you there, but i think it can still be a confidence booster.
@AnnoyingJoe don't take away too much from the Rangers. They had mojo tonight. Stepan Hagelin thing was real
@slapshot13j Sit boyle
Hope not, if these lines stay the way they are things might be looking up
@ATCRyan can't like this comment enough...
Looks that way. Splitting up the big 3 has done wonders for everyone except Gaborik.
@rangersfan sit prucha
@rangersfan @slapshot13j I actually like Boyle on the wing there. I think he and Kreider took a lot of the pressure off of Richards to grind along the walls and made room for him to gain some confidence.
@rangersfan i doubt it will happen, but I would sign up for that
