It’s Go Time!

[1]Game 42. [2]

Start of the second half of the season … like the first half, it starts outside of the U.S.A.

The Rangers have suffered half of their regulation losses to Canadian clubs (6-5-1) including a pair of home losses to the Maple Leaves.

They Rangers have lost one in a row—and have only lost as many as two in a row (in regulation) twice this season. They are 5-1 in the last six, 10-2 in the last 12. They are 5-0-1 in the first games of back-to-backs, and 5-0-1 in the second games of back-to-backs, and play in Montreal tomorrow night.

Martin Biron (8-2, 2.06) starts in goal. Brandon Dubinsky (sore shoulder) remains out, which means Wojtek Wolski gets another chance.

This is the first meeting since Dion Phaneuf phaneufed Michael Sauer with a huge, clean hit.

***************************

Got confirmation that Sean Avery’s problems with the Connecticut Whale were NOT due to a spitting incident, as some nit-twit tweeted.

***************************

Unrelated, a source confirmed that the Empire State Building will be lit tomorrow on one side with New York Giants blue, on two sides with Green Bay Packers green and gold, and on the south side in Flyers orange crud … to honor the Packers and the Flyers and Mr. Ed Snider, of course. With a full endorsement from the NHL.
