Merry Christmas

Well Santa delivered the Rangers a nice Christmas present and the Rangers almost blew it. The present? The Anaheim Ducks, the worst team in the Western Conference and the second worst team in the NHL. The Rangers won in OT, 3-2, on a power play goal by Mats Zuccarello.

But it wasn't easy. The Rangers were playing rope-a-dope with a one goal lead in the third period when the Ducks tied it with a little over two minutes to go. When you are the Rangers nothing comes easy. However, as the coach often states, "never critique a win." So the Rangers go into the Christmas mini break with a win, feeling a little better about themselvers, but they still have mucho problems.

Hopefully, the return of Klein and Girardi will bolster the D, but what or rather who is going to get the offense going? Nash? Kreider? Right now its the Zucc and Brassy show. But there is still time and maybe Santa will have a surprise in the Ranger stockings. Hope they are large.

But it's Christmas. Forget hockey and spend time with your family and loved ones. Merry Christmas to all out there in Rangerland.
