That is exactly what tonight is for the New York Rangers as they take on the New York Islanders in Long Island.
The Blueshirts are riding a 6-game winning streak while the New York Islanders are one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League. With that said, however, it is more than likely that the Islanders will be up for tonight’s tilt in front of their fans.
While the Islanders’ will be more than pumped to play tonight’s match, the New York Rangers are an extremely hot club right now. They are scoring goals, playing smart defense, playing responsibly and having success on special teams.
This is a much different Rangers’ club that the Islanders will be playing compared to the team they faced back in October. Back then, the Rangers will still trying to figure out how to mesh well and what kind of team they were going to be.

When the New York Rangers selected J.T. Miller 15th overall
in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, many, including myself, were unsure of the quality
of that selection. Players with bigger
name recognition and reportedly higher upside were still on the board when the
Rangers took Miller. Thus far Miller is
doing everything he can to quell the doubters and reward the Rangers for...

Exactly one month ago, when the Rangers and Islanders met for the first time this season at the Nassau Coliseum, the Blueshirts were just returning to the U.S. after their lengthy European road trip that opened the season.

Lots of excitement as the Dan Girardi All Star write-in campaign began yesterday with numerous tweets, Facebook messages and e-mails encouraging others to vote for the Rangers underappreciated defenseman or just letting other Blueshirts fans know that they had voted.

The Rangers have not lost a game since recalling Sean Avery from the Connecticut Whale on October 31. Contrast the 4-0 record with him in the lineup against the 5-3-3 record with him off the ice, and it looks pretty good for the agitator. This continues...

Brad Richards is taking to life as a big star in New York quite well.
He's showing up in Page Six for squiring starlets around town on his nights off and leading the Rangers to wins when he's working, something that's known as Jetering around these parts. Well, it's not really known as Jetering, but it should be especially when the Rangers are as hot as they are right...
I wasn't going to start a new entry, but it looks like I should.
Nino Niederreiter is definitely IN, but Jack Capuano will not release the name of the one who sits until closer to game time.
Evgeni Nabokov will be back in goal tonight. According to Art Staple, his only win this season was against the Rangers. We need another one tonight.
