Buffalo is starting to come around after a shaky start, bu t then again beating both Tor and NJ is not saying much. We should win 3-1

DT said...

Scotty said...

I like these lines. Lets hope they produce.

Agree Scotty there can be real production out of all 4 lines if they all play to their ability

Ronald said...

Maloney on the telecast just made my day. I hope Micheletti loses his voice.

Enroth did NOT have possession of the puck! The replay CLEARLY shows that. HOW IN THE HELL COULD ANY REF NOT SEE THAT!

I'm so EFFING sick of these waived off goals that should count!

Rangers better win this one. They are playing better than the opposition, just like last game.
