First off, I don't get the sense that the Rangers will conclude any deal tonight.

           Lots of players still out there, and prices are high.

           So, we're at the end of 1, and hey, surprise, your Blueshirts miss Marian Gaborik. Not a lot of presence out there. Certainly not the pace of the Olympic games, although how could it be, really? The transition jarring to observe tho.

            NYR has nine shots to five, but the PP fizzled. Wondering if Callahan, Drury and Gaborik, sharp from playing the last two weeks, should be a trio. Move Dubi with Christensen and Prospal.

          Milan Michalek had the lone goal at 3:51 of the first, converting a 3-on-2 cross-ice feed from Jason Spezza on the initial shot faced by Henrik Lundqvist.

         Back soon...
