The New York Rangers (22-9-4) defeated the Florida Panthers (19-12-7) by the score of 4-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports....unreal start to the game for the Blueshirts, but looked like the team started focusing on the Winter Classic as soon as they built the 3-0 lead and relied on Hank to take this one home. Can't blame them but I hate seeing them take their foot off their opponent's throat. Looked like Renney hockey out there....and speaking of Lundqvist, I'd say he's locked in going into the Winter Classic, wouldn't you?...Dubinsky is officially back folks....everything going right for Del Zotto right now. You know, other than taking a sucker punch to the face....great response by Rupp to Del Zotto sucker punch by seeking Kopecky out and pummeling him....so much for Richards slumping. 1g, 1a and a +3 tonight....stupid Rangers winning tonight so I can't complain about them waiving Avery....combined +3 for Stralman, Woywitk...
