I’m not the only person “to have this reaction to last night’s loss in San Jose”:http://njmg.typepad.com/rangersblog/, that while it was still a loss, it was one in which the Rangers at least showed more than some of their wins this season.
I know, no one’s interested in moral victories. But go back to that debacle in New Jersey a week ago Friday. If you were told then that the Rangers would claim four of six points on the West Coast and at least play the league-leading Sharks tough, my guess is you’d have taken it.
So the ship has steadied since then. We at least know that. The next six weeks or so is when the Rangers clarify what exactly they need before the trade deadline, which, given their precarious cap situation, does not necessarily mean they’re going to get it.
The team is busy sleeping off the flight back from California, but will be back on the ice tomorrow. We will be back from vacaction to check in then…
