Rangers Making A Statement

The Rangers are rolling, make that steam rolling through the NHL, with their 11th win in their past 12 games, a 4-1 beating of the top team in the NHL, the Anaheim Ducks. The Rangers were impressive. Their defense was solid, the goal tending great and the offense timely. Goal scorers were Brassard, Nash, Zuccarello and an empty netter by Dominic Moore. Nash continued his hot streak and Zuccarello ended an eight game drought.

Tonight is another big test as the Rangers take on the LA Kings, defending Stanley Cup Champions with a chance at revenge. In reality, one can never truly get revenge after losing the Cup, but it would be satisfying to say the least. While the Rangers are hot, they are only in fourth place in the Metro behind the Caps, Isles and the Pens. It looks like a four team dogfight down to the finish in the Metro.

JT Miller continued his strong play with two assists, Nash is on fire, Zuccs is waking up, the defense is solid as a rock and Lundqvist is in mid season form. The team on ice is rolling. The team off ice is stagnate. Staal needs to be resigned, now. The Stealth has to come out of his mid season slumber and sign this guy and don't lose him to the Hurricanes. Sign Staal now.

ICINGS: The T/Birds mini streak ended with a thud. a 7-1 loss to Ward Melville, the number one team in the league. The T/Birds had a 1-0 lead after one but couldn't hold W/M the rest of the way. The T/Birs are now 6-8-1.
