It may have taken six months, but the Brad Richards/Marian Gaborik combination has finally become what we all hoped this past offseason.Richards looks like the playmaking center the Rangers thought they were getting when they signed him to a nine-year deal, while Gaborik has rediscovered the magic from two years ago.So why is it clicking now? I guess sometimes it just takes time to build chemistry between two great players. Or maybe somehow, having a speedster like Carl Hagelin on the line helps take the focus off the both of them. Too be honest, I could care less, as long as it's working. And by the looks of the plays we've seem the last two games, this might just be the beginning of a beautiful relationship...
