I’m going to hijack this thing from Josh for a couple of quick musings:
1. Bob Hartley now looks silly for his goalie flip-flopping. I said it at the time that by benching Kari Lehtonen for Game 2 he was introducing a negative energy into his own dressing room. And we’re seeing evidence of that tonight. Lehtonen has looked shell-shocked.
2. You can count on seeing Colton Orr tomorrow—for obvious reasons.
3. Michael Nylander just put the finishing touches on a hat trick. He was at the optional morning skate today and he’ll almost definitely be there for the optional tomorrow. There isn’t a Ranger who works harder.
4. Oh yeah, Henrik Lundqvist is on his way to a shutout. It’s a pretty favorable state of affairs for the Rangers when that becomes an afterthought.
It’s so loud in here I can’t hear myself think.
