...hey at least it wasn't eight goals.
...i thought the Rangers actually played a solid game tonight, but they're just not making the big play when needed. Or they're making the big mistake that costs them. I.E. Rozsival backing in on Rupp's second goal instead of stepping up.
...Gaborik is only 25 games into his Rangers career and I think he's already my favorite all-time Ranger. Not just because he can score at will, but he's not afraid to go to the net and get dirty. I loved seeing him mix it up with Crosby tonight.
...you think Avery looked comfortable on the first line? Too bad it took Torts so long to figure that one out.
...nice to see Higgins finally bury one.
...Henrik, I've got three word for you: high, glove, side. Figure it out.
...i guess Drury and Callahan don't want to play in the Olympics.
...a hat trick by Mike Rupp?!?!?!? Isn't this the same guy Orr used to beat the crap out of when he was on the Devils?
...18 goals in the three games since Redden went down. Maybe the veteran Mathieu Dandenault was the better guy to bring up.
...with the loss the Rangers are officially a .500 team. Feels like they're a lot worse.
...the Rangers are off until Saturday when they head up to Buffalo. I'd like to see Torts really shake things up a bit by maybe sitting Callahan on Saturday.
