By now you've read the critiques and the wrapups and the stats, and well, as mentioned several times here in the past week or so, your Blueshirts are back at .500, having dropped the first two on this four-game homestand, the longest of the year.
Not many stick salutes going on at center ice this fall, with the Rangers winning just two of eight on Broadway, and collecting just five of a possible 16 points.
Not a recipe for the playoffs,
Caps had just 10 shots in final two periods and cashed in four of them. Sorry, despite the breakdowns, Henrik Lundqvist absolutely needs to stop one of them, no?
On the upside, Marian Gaborik should be back by Thursday or Sunday. The Sabres visit Thursday, having skated tonight agains the Devils. Ryan Miller could return for Buffalo tomorrow. The Oilers, in for the Sunday matinee, are struggling, pounded by Canes 7-1 yesterday.
Two wins, or even three points is doable. In fact, it appears to be a must.
Anyway, practice at noon, followed by the FWC, Fabulous Weekly Chat, at 2.
