It’s Go Time!

[1]Game 77. [2]

End of a three-game road trip and the final back-to-backs of the season.

Ya boys are 2-0 on the trip and 4-1 in their last five. Only five games remain after tonight, every other night starting Friday at home vs Montreal, then Boston at MSG Sunday, at Philly (paging John Scott) Tuesday, at Pittsburgh next Thursday (could be a nasty game depending on what’s at stake and what’s sewn up) and home for Washington next Saturday.

Because they have the tiebreaker in their pocket, if the Rangers go 3-3, the Penguins will need 10 of the remaining 12 points available. If the Rangers go 4-2, Pitt has to go 6-0. If the Rangers finish 2-4, the Penguins have to get eight points in their final six games.

Henrik Lundqvist starts his season-high seventh straight game in goal.

Atlanta has lost four of its last five, and close to being toast. Oh, yeah. Dustin Byfuglien.

********************************************
Congratulations to our ticket contest winner, Jim. No, not that Jim or the other Jim, but the other Jim.

Had to check a bunch of IP addresses and email addresses because of all the Jims in the pool. But the winner Jim was one of 24 entrants who nailed the score, 3-2. Nobody had Fedotenko with the game-winner, so we went to the tiebreakers and Jim had the shots on goal exact at 32-26 Rangers. Two others, Len and Zubov, had the 3-2 score, the wrong GWG and 32 shots for the Rangers, but Len had 27 shots for the Wilds and Zubov had 28. So it was that close.
