No, I’m not sure you can say that about any game at this point. However…..take a look at the Eastern Conference after the Devils’ come-from-behind win last night against Montreal, and the Rangers are now squarely outside the playoff picture with 30 points.
With that in mind, you don’t want to pass up an opportunity tonight against the promising but still vulnerable Penguins.
Some quick thoughts after the morning skate:
I asked Tom Renney about that today and here’s what the coach said.
“I’m hoping we have the opportunity to have more than one look at him obviously. If we do that that means it’s worked or there’s reason to believe it will work….As long as I believe there’s reason to pursue it, I’m happy with that.”
Naturally, Renney isn’t one for making promises, but unless Immonen starts teeing the puck up on a regular basis for the likes of Crosby and Malkin tonight, one would hope this is not his only audition.
