When the Rangers are on my watch I don’t even need to see the games. They win anyway. When I covered them last April they won. When I was around for the Atlanta series they swept. When I was there for Buffalo they nearly knocked off the beast of the East. I’d like to think I’m the Sean Avery of the Rangers beat, only with less scar tissue and without a handful of Hollywood starlets on speed dial.
Seriously though, I was out tonight covering basketball while the Blueshirts were on the ice in Toronto. What happens…well, six goals, including two by Petr Prucha and one by Blair Betts? Eh…what? At this rate, Joey Kocur may end up on the scoresheet vs. Montreal.
Because I was out, I Tivo-ed the game. I just finished watching it and I realized: dutiful reader, stf, was dead on. You guys have absolutely nothing to complain about, so it’s been quiet around here. Drury made one of those plays Hockey Gods make; Jagr just destroyed it on the PP; Shanahan unleashed his deadly one-timer; Prucha had an impact after Renney gave him precious PP minutes. All was good on the Rangers front.
Heck, even Straka and Roszival shot the puck!
I’ll be back in the morning after the skate. It’s optional, but I’ll see what’s going on before heading down to the Garden. Talk to you then.
