Del Zotto-J. Moore
Cam Talbot - 2-1-0, 1.96 gaa, .929 sv%, 2 so
Sergei Bobrovsky - 4-7-2, 2.79 gaa, .910 sv%, 0 so
- The Blue Jackets have lost four straight.
- Marian Gaborik is pointless in the last four games.
- Sergei Bobrovsky has gone 2-6-0 with a 3.01 GAA over his last eight starts and is 0-3-1 with a 2.98 GAA in his last four against the Rangers.
- Brandon Dubinsky is goalless in his last four games.
- Artem Anisimov is pointless in his past three games.
- Fedor Tyutin is a -3 with just 12 hits in 11 games this season.
- James Wisniewski is pointless in his last two after a five game point streak.
- Let's just hope Gaborik doesn't duplicate the output he had the last time he faced the Rangers back in 2007...

Mar. 21 Rangers vs. Blue Jackets at Columbus
Not sure if this was seen or posted before, but Dubinsky comments from earlier about Torts and him being fired:
“Not really. I think my relationship with Torts fell apart the last year I was there and I just felt like his relationships with some of the other players could be doing the same thing so I guess that sums it up as to why I wasn’t completely surprised that it happened.”
Great win. A little concerned about seeing them almost run out of gas in the 3rd. Under Torts they were one of the best conditioned teams. But AV is pushing all the right buttons right now so we take the 2 points and rest up for Sunday.
and they said owning Rangers for fantasy was a bad decision....
Not the best showing... but huge two points in a back to back with Talbot in net.
Panthers on Sunday... keep it rolling
@shoot_the_goalie Not surprised. In a way I miss Torts - his interviews were priceless and his love for the game and sheer passion were great assets. and now that he is not here and I'm not pissed off about his regimented, lack of depth coaching style I can see his value as a coach and appreciate how good he is. But you can't be a great coach if you don't know how to work with your players personalities. They don't have to love you but they do have to respect you. You have to have a rapport with your players that is so tight that they would give their last ounce of blood to win a game for you. These guys lost all respect with Torts and threw him under the bus
@KreiderisTheChosenOne i give up...
@Trueblue99 Back to back games - 3 in 4 nights and 4 in 6 nights. Even Torts' Rangers looked tired after that much work. No worries
@AnnoyingJoe Oh baby!!!
@Betweentheworlds I will describe: Pouliot is eating bacon. Boyle's head is on a scale. Yep, 55 pounds.
@Betweentheworlds please post your lotto numbers. You're hot on your predictions!
@shoot_the_goalie we never score on the EN... ever
@Betweentheworlds Oh, and McDonagh scores on en.
@Betweentheworlds If they score an EN, I'm gonna ask you to post your mega millions numbers.
@Betweentheworlds Nope. Now I want my money back. heh.
