The New York Rangers (24-9-4) defeated the Florida Panthers (20-12-8) by the score of 3-2 in overtime, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

...something special happening here Rangers fans. In a game the Rangers could have used any excuse they wanted for not having their "A" game they fought through an anticipated slow start and refused to lose. How can you not love this team right now?

...Marian mother effin Gaborik. Guy was dancing out there in the third period. Deserved to score the winner.

...was happy to see Callahan's leg tip in Richards apparent goal saving me from another night of embarrassment.

...you know you're playing well when an ex-President is showing up to your games. (See video here) 

...while he should have had the second one, Biron just keeps on winning.

...i know Barch missed the game for Florida, but for a game that was supposed to have a lot of bad blood I was sort of disappointed there was no fireworks.

...going to be real hard to take Stralman out of the line-up when Sauer & Eminger are healthy.

...first big mistake by the young Bickel on the first goal, but I did like his aggressiveness and it didn't look like it effected his game.

...Torts understandably not fully comfortable with Staal just yet as he was stapled to the bench in the third period and OT.

...Rupp looks like he left all his goals at the Winter Classic. How did he not bang that home?

...speaking of Rupp, I really like the fourth line of Rupp-Mitchell-Prust, not so much Fedotenko-Boyle-Hagelin.

...AA now pointless in six straight.

...dare I say Dubinsky is starting to earn his salary.

...right back at it tomorrow night in Pittsburgh.
