Rangers got their act together after a shaky start. Nothing fancy, just solid fundamentally sound hockey. Now up 2 to 0 in the series, the next problem is that the Rangers now have to play the next two games at Madison Square Garden. Unlike Jerry Bob and Phil, the Rangers seem to play better on the road. When the Rangers went down 3 games to 1 (at MSG) against Pittsburg, despite it being their fifth game in seven nights, people were booing this Ranger team. The Rangers have not lost since that game. They are now on a five game winning streak, with four of those wins coming on the road. If the Rangers plan on heading to the Stanley cup finals, hopefully they can muster a win or two at the Garden. Things are looking good for the American team, though with the topsy-turvy nature of this years playoffs, being overconfident is the last thing that needs to happen. If he continues playing at the level he is playing, IMHO Henrik Lundqvist should be invited to play with the 2015 Dead. Uh, he might want to call in sick for the show in Montreal.
This is why NY fans are great. Lovem hatem is the motto. David, The broadway blueshirts are hot. And Henrik will party all night long with these wins. When a team gets on a roll they win. Even if they get out played. The puck bounces their way. A skate deflects a stick falls and hits the puck etc etc. Ive seen it year after year. Canadians appear out of gas and its driving me nuts that my Black and Gold lost to them.
