The New York Rangers (5-7-0) defeated the Buffalo Sabres (2-12-1) by the score of 2-0, tonight. For a box score, go to Yahoo! Sports.
...if the Rangers could actually finish, this game would have been a blowout. But I'm not going to complain, because that's as dominant a 2-0 win as you're going to see. Coming around Rangers fans.
...so can we stop all this Talbot is making Lundqvist expendable talk now?
...remember how good we all thought Kreider was in the 2012 playoffs. That guy sucks compared to what we're watching right now. So much more of a complete player as he's responsible defensively and has much better puck awareness. And that speed? Lethal.
...maybe Arniel isn't holding Brassard back.
...although he isn't scoring, JT Miller's development is almost as fun to watch as Kreider's. Nothing better than seeing him parked in front of the net screening Miller on Brassard's goal.
...and that's exactly why I have a man crush on Mashinter. Gives the team a nice boost of energy with a fight and they were off and running. Too bad AV only played him four minutes.
...there's the Marc Staal I remember as he looked much more confident handling the puck tonight.
...i need to check the stats, but I think the Rangers have more power play goals in 12 games than they did in the five years under Torts.
...while the Sabres offense is embarrassingly bad, the Rangers defense is a far cry from the swiss cheese unit we witnessed on the west coast.
...you always wonder if a healthy scratch actually motivates a player. In the case of Zuccarello, it does as he's been a different player since watching the Flyers game from the press box. Loving that little eff'er.
...Stepan couldn't score in a whore house right now.
...Girardi played the fewest minutes of any defensemen tonight. I know he's been struggling, but wow.
...btw. what's up with the Rangers new locker room victory song? Do they think they're the Charlestown Chiefs or something?...
