Rangers Watch: NYR 6, TOR 1
An impressive victory by the Rangers, but let's be real. The Leafs failed to show up for the game. Still, it's two points New York desperately needs to stay in the pack in the Eastern Conference and help to dig them out of the hole they created for themselves earlier this month.
Jaromir Jagr exploded for four points, and Peter Prucha scored two goals after a 17 game drought. December 1st was the last time anyone on the HBO line earned a point. Tonight, the checking line of Ryan Hollweg-Blair Betts-Colton Orr opened up the scoring en route to a rout of Toronto. It was a long overdue for the hard working, hard hitting trio.
