Step has looked real good since he "ended his holdout" 3 games ago. He deserves the hat - nice job Rangers - vacation's over.. the Ducks fly into town Monday
Only bad thing about tonight was Pyatt got a point. With his speed ( SLOW ) he still looks way out of place.
yeah baby 6-7 and we're in the playoffs, you got to love what this Metro division is all about---now the true test Ducks, Pens--win those and this is a real team!
Flip on the Miami game. Unreal football game.
Great effort by the rangers. Big week coming up with the ducks, pens and BJs.
At least it can't get worse than the last time we played the ducks :)
Kreider with 3 more assists. He has woken up this dormant offense. Kinda strange that their line didn't get much time in the first or it could have been more.
Seriously...how many 1 goal games has hank had and how many hat tricks has step had? Like 132 to 2!? Give the kid the #1!!!
@BrendyJohnson He's like a smaller version of Martin St. Louis.
@KreiderisTheChosenOne I don't think Lundqvist should play against Gabby.
@NYR44 It's all Hank now
@AnnoyingJoe they look ok. Canes really suck though.
@Kevin DeLury Agreed. Playing well against some bad teams is tough to get too excited about.
@Easy_Kreider nah, just need to play buffalo and carolina more often
@Kevin DeLury Well, he went over and gentle pushed his chest. If you're going to stand up for a guy do it. Don't do it just for show.
