New York Rangers
New Jersey Devils
1) Another staged fight to start the game. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. Maybe it’s hypocritical, but to me they don’t seem as senseless when it’s archrivals playing. I did think Rupp had some good, solid hits, though he wasn’t credited with any, officially.
2) I liked the Brandon Dubinsky-Kelly Clarkson bout better because it was an actual hockey fight between two hockey players, because of what happened in the hockey game. And I thought Dubinsky handled himself very well in that event. And though Dubinsky missed the a few more times and got himself removed from the Brad Richards-Ryan Callahan line, and was partly responsible on the Devils goal, and had one bad turnover at the red line, he played pretty well. (Boy that sounds like a mountain of contradictions). He had a big block and clear moments before Carl Hagelin’s short-handed goal, when it was still 2-1, and he has been good on the PK all year.
3) I thought the refs were calling some ticky-tack stuff ...

The Rangers got rivalry week started off right with a 4-1 defeat of the New Jersey Devils tonight at the Prudential Center. This wasn’t a perfect effort for the Rangers by any means, but an explosive third period, which saw the team score three unanswered goals, carried them to victory in the first meeting with their cross-river rivals this season.
Mike Rupp and Cam Janssen...
… I was very happy to read this! Henrik continues to be a total a class act. We should be very proud that he represents our New York Rangers.
I get some flack that I don’t have enough coverage of hockey on Mentality Magazine. To that I say, here you go.

Ranger Wins the Olivia Munn Dating Sweepstakes
Michael Del Zotto, a third-year defenseman, is flourishing this season and Brad Richards’s guidance is a primary reason.
Its Thursday, it’s a musings day and a game day. It’s the beginning of a three game home stand against divisional rivals. Don’t get used to it with relocation coming though. Anyway, let’s get into it.
Something I tweeted last night: Dan Girardi has gone pointless in 9 games. The entire tweet was a joke but what it did was reinforce how some players really do go beyond stat...
For all the praise being heaped on fill ins like Bickel, Erixon, and Stralman. For all the kudos being thrown at the Rangers and what a great job they do backchecking, blocking shots, getting in passing lanes, etc. The cold hard truth is this. This team will only go as far as Henrik Lundqvist will take them. Tonight, he took them to a 4-1 win that is a very, very deceiving score...
All this time, yet the tide in the Battle of the Hudson still flows full flood toward Manhattan.
Again, it was Henrik Lundqvist keeping the Rangers boat afloat, while Martin Brodeur’s ship ultimately swamped.
It was a night of maximum efforts, attacks that created chaos, shots that rang pipe...

First, here are the unofficial contest results. Three entries had the Rangers winning 4-1 and Gaborik scoring the GWG—jpg30, Alexei and Omar A. They were all over on the Rangers shots, which was 21. So we went to the final tiebreaker, Devils shots. The Devils had 31 shots. Alexei guessed 24, jpg guessed 30 and Omar A guessed 31.
So Omar A is the unofficial winner … unless I...
