Rangers Watch: NYI 2, NYR 4
I had the distinct pleasure of watching tonight's game at Madison Square Garden, where the familiar "Potvin sucks" was second in popularity only to taunting Rick DiPietro. Emboldened by their team's win over the rival Islanders, after the game chants could be heard on Seventh Avenue, aimed at anyone in visitor colors.
Oh, how I miss games at the Garden!
The Rangers really are a better team than the Islanders, despite being down 1-3 so far in the season series. Tonight the Blueshirts didn't allow Brendan Witt, Chris Simon, et al to throw them off their game. They contained their emotions - even after Colton Orr made quick work of Simon in the only fight of the night - stuck with their game plan and didn't allow themselves to be outworked.
Tomorrow I'm off to the NHL Store to complete my Manhattan hockey tour.
