“I’d say revenge is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of this game,” said defenseman Michael Del Zotto. “The guys that are here from last year know how heartbreaking it was, the way our season finished there in Philly. It feels just like yesterday that it happened even though it was quite a few months ago. That memory doesn’t go away.”
...i love that the Rangers are using last year's loss as motivation. I expect a very physical game. There are certain games, as a fan, you get more amped up than normal for and tonight is one of them.
And if you weren't certain where the Rangers are mentally for this game check out this quote from Brandon Dubinsky in today's New York Post...
"I know there are questions lingering from what happened last year with Gabby, but we have a much clearer picture now of what's expected of us in those kinds of situations. We will not allow our teammates to be taken advantage of.
...if this quote doesn't get you fired up for tonight's game, I'm not sure what will.
