Today the New York Rangers (13-8-2) take on the Dallas Stars (11-7-4). This is Dallas' first trip to MSG since the Rangers beat them 3-0 on November 4, 2003. The Rangers snapped their five game road winning streak by losing to Florida 3-2 in a shootout on Friday night. Dallas has won 4 games in a row. For a full recap go to Yahoo! Sports.
...first some quick news, according to Steve Zipay at Newsday, Callahan is out for today's game and Straka will be a game time decision. If Straka doesn't play then Greg Moore will get the nod.
...everyone keeps waiting for the Rangers offense to break out and this doesn't seem like the game it's going to happen as they run into a very good goalie in Marty Turco who has a record at MSG of 1-1-0 with a 1.51 goals-against average. But hey, maybe it will happen when you least expect it.
...Drury should have a lot of confidence going into this game after his two goal performance on Friday night, hopefully it will carry over into today.
...today's game is actually being broadcast on Channel 9. I think many of us in the 30 and over crowd remember watching the games when we were kids on Channel 9. Very nostalgic.
