Rangers Watch: TAM 1, NYR 3
I'm sorry, Shanny. How could I ever have doubted you? The old man had a goal and an assist, almost doubling his point production so far this season.
What a difference a day makes. The Bolts and Leafs are similar teams: high octane offenses but challenged in front of (and in) their own net. Saturday's game should have looked a lot more like tonight's victory.
My biggest nitpick about the Blueshirts tonight was their eagerness to shoot from the outside. I lost count of how many times they passed up a quick shot from the slot for a bad angle wrister. I thought Michael Nylander was in Washington now?
Speaking of, there's no telling which Rangers team will show up for Thursday's game against the well-dressed Caps. New York has yet to string together back-to-back wins this season. They need to beat Washington not just for the two points, but to prove they've begun to turn the corner.
