The New York Rangers (9-3-3) defeated the Carolina Hurricanes (5-8-3) by the score of 5-1, tonight. For a boxscore and recap go to Yahoo! Sports.
...most fun I've had watching this team in a long time. Everything is clicking right now. Heck they even scored a power play goal tonight.
...Avery proved tonight he can still be an effective player in this league if he uses his speed. Now it's up to him to have this type of performance on a consistant basis forcing Torts into giving him more ice time. BTW, Rangers still undefeated since his recall.
...you literally saw a monkey come off Dubinsky's back with that goal.
...great job by Girardi getting our All Star write-in campaign started off on the right foot.
...wonder of TSN still thinks Richards is an early season bust after that performance.
...Gaborik went pointless tonight but this is the best we've seen him play in a Rangers uniform. And he's scored 42 goals for the Rangers so that's saying alot.
...everytime Rosen mentioned Hurricane defenseman McBain's name I couldn't help but think of the Simpsons character.
...lots of credit goes to Torts. He's finally got his team with his type of players and it's working.
...oh yeah, Hank was kind of awesome tonight.
...beyond impressed with this make shift defensive unit that has now held opponents to just nine goals during this six game win streak.
...off until Tuesday night when the Rangers visit the Fishsticks.
QUOTES (via Blueshirts United):
"Six in a row is great, but we can't be satisfied. That's what we talked about coming into the game, youcan't let off the gas pedal just because you've strung some games together. Keep your confidence, stay confident with the wins, but just keep trying to approach every game the same."
"(Brad Richards) made a great look and I had a decent shot---not anything crazy, but more getting it in the right place in the right time. It was a really good pass and Brad is a great player, but that's a play we are looking for. The seam play, when guys come up the half-wall, it's up to the guy on the weak side---where I was---to get open to create a lot of confusion for the penalty kill."
