You wonder what it would be like if the Rangers played more games like last night.
Tom Renney would never tinker with his lines. There would be Wade Redden jerseys sprinkled around Madison Square Garden. People would come to this blog solely to hear me wax poetic on the beauty of the Rangers’ power play.
Yes, it’s a stretch. But the Rangers are afforded a rare crisis-free day after they manhandled the slumping Penguins last night. No line changes at practice. No real news. I’m telling you—this isn’t good for business.
But fear not. Tomorrow is another day. And the Canadiens are not the Penguins, which is a nice way of saying the Rangers holiday might be short-lived if they don’t at least match the effort level of last night.
