No Miracle On 34th Street

Coincidence? While the Rangers were on Sunday night the Sundance Chanel  was running back to back the great Christmas Classic, "The Miracle on 34th Street." What a great Christmas movie. And then there were the Rangers giving their best performance of "Disaster on 34th Street." Folks, this is no longer a slide, it's a landslide.

How bad is it? It's now 3-9-2 in the last 14. Eleven losses in fourteen games. Lundqvist was pulled for the second game in a row, the third time this season. The Caps blasted us 7-3 and they look to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. We are playing like the worst team in the conference.

Tonight a chance at redemption. The Ducks come in with old friend Carl Hagelin. The speedy Swede may be a tad too fast for our aging and hurting D-men but it's amazing what a couple of hard hit checks can do to a speedy forward. Do we still have guys who could administer those shots?

Anyway, we are getting close to the magical season, Christmas. Yesterday was my birthday and we had a jolly day with my clan. Mucho fun, a lot of food and plenty of noise. That's the way it should be at 85. Now maybe tonight the Rangers will give me a belated birthday present. That would be nice. Maybe I'm asking for another miracle. Hope springs eternal.
