Here we go. Rangers having lost two of last three — both against the Canadiens, neither of them very good — with an outstanding 1-0 win over Vancouver in between. It’s one of those “Let’s See” games, in which they’ve done pretty well all season long.
But they aren’t scoring (11 goals in the last eight games) and their power play is awful, and everything is being juggled, and … again, it’s one of those games in which, so far this season, the Rangers have normally responded strongly.
But these are the Flys, who are the best team in the East at the moment, and getting better, and who have handled the Rangers in a pair of 4-1 victories.
Tonight’s lines, to start:
No Carcillo tonight. And by Carcillo, I mean Daniel, not, you know. Boucher in goal.
