...got to love all the praise being thrown at Callahan in this preview. You always wonder how your team and players are perceived around the league, so this was awesome to hear.
...i also agree with Hradek that Richards could be the most important player for the Rangers in the playoffs. If he continues rolling it's going to be hard for opponents to just focus on stopping Stepan and Nash. But if he reverts back to his poor play from earlier this season, I don't see the Rangers being able to get past the Capitals.
To further prove how respected Callahan is in the league, check out this quote from the Capitals Jason Chimera on the Rangers captain yesterday (via Newsday)...
“If you ask anyone in the league, you want him on your team.”
I wanna see the Rangers reach another level tonight. This is playoff hockey.
Take it to 'em!
LET'S GO RANGERS !!!
I can't believe I have to wait like 9 more hours for this thing to start. I feel like I'm gonna puke. This Knick fiasco has me so nervous for the Rangers and their series hasn't even started yet. I just want the work day to end so I could self medicate a bit. Ugh...I hate the playoffs...but I love them!
