The New York Rangers (25-9-4) defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins (21-14-4) by the score of 3-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.

...i thought for sure this team was going to get run out of the building tonight, but Torts takes one of his patented early game timeouts allowing the team to refocus and it was all Rangers from there. Teams must dread facing this hard working, never say die team.

...Lundqvist = filthy.

...the Dubinsky short-handed goal looked exactly like the Callahan OT winner vs. the Pens last season, only in reverse.

...i just want to thank the Canadiens again for not only taking Gomez off the Rangers hands, but also giving them one of the best young defensemen in the league in McD. He was a force tonight.

...Rangers needed a spark in that first period and who gives it to them? Mr. Clutch, Brad Richards. 18-of-23 on faceoffs as well.

...might be time for Boyle to take a seat in the press box.

...Rupp kneeing penalty might have been more baffling than the Callahan holding the stick one in the Winter Classic. And Torts might have gotten himself another fine for his post game thoughts on the call. See below video.

...man Stepan needed that one. Just one goal in his previous 11.

...and he can thank Gabby who somehow missed his easiest goal of the season. Or should I say Stepan should thank Fleury.

...Staal looked a lot more confident throwing his body around tonight. Scared the crap out of me.

...power play is brutal right now.

...Hagelin pointless since being put on a line with Boyle and Fedotenko.

...Rangers off until Tuesday when the Coyotes visit MSG.
