665 Game 7: Lightning at Rangers … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8900339 align=”left”] Game 7. Lightning at Rangers. As I mentioned thrice during the Washington series and prior to Game 6 in this series, this could be our final “It’s Go Time!” of the season. I hope not because this has kind of been a crazy place these last…

932 Game 6: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8894097 align=”left”] Game 6. Rangers at Lightning. I think I may have mentioned during the Washington series once or twice, or thrice, that this could be the final “It’s Go Time!” of the season. I think it’s a coin-flip game, and I predicted 1-1 after two, 2-2 after…

732 Game 4: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8887216 align=”left”] Game 4. Rangers at Lightning. Pretty close to a must-win for ya boys. Not technically, but, you know. Going down 3-1 again and coming back against this explosive team probably isn’t happening. As Marc Staal said, they will need to play their best game of the…

733 Game 3: Rangers at Lightning … It’s Go Time!

[polldaddy poll=8882850 align=”left”] Game 3. Rangers at Lightning. A big-boy pants game for the Rangers at the Arena That Changes Names Every Five Minutes, after they spit the bit in Game 2 — a game in which I didn’t think the Lighting was terrific either, but the Rangers messed…

They had every right to be annoyed because neither team played particularly well, but the Rangers’ decision-making and…
