Rangers 3, Kings 2, OT

The New York Rangers (22-11-2) defeated the Los Angeles Kings (13-12-6) by the score of 3-2 in overtime, last night. For a recap and box score go to

...first Dawes now Rozsival. These guys are really increasing their trade value, which is going to make it easier for the Rangers to open up cap space for Sundin. Just kidding. Great game by Rozsival. Will Renney have Rozsival go first in the next shootout?

...i can't believe I'm saying this, but we probably lose if Lundqvist is in goal last night. Valiquette was on. I can't say this enough, having a back-up who can come in and give you that kind of performance is something most teams would kill for. Heck look at the Kings they'd probably kill to have Vali as their starter.

...we've now scored a power play goal in three straight games!!! Don't get too excited Pearn fans, against Anaheim the goal was awarded to the Rangers for Zherdev being pulled down on a break-away with an empty net and last night Rozsival's penalty shot goal was on the power play.

...another strong game from Dawes, who finally looks like he's finding his game. It only took you two months Nigel.

...Drury looks like he's on a scoring run right now. He's been streaky all year. He went the first 11 games with no goals, then he scored eight in his next 11, then scoreless again over the next 11 games and now he's scored in two straight games.

...four out of four points on the west coast trip so far, meaning we're playing with house money going into the Shark Tank on Saturday.

I was hoping the Rangers would get 3 out of the 6 points on this trip. They already got 4 points. To quote Bobby Finstock at this point "Everything thing else is cream cheese."
