...before I get to the Rangers, I've got to give it up to my alma mater the Butler University Bulldogs for upsetting the #1 seed Syracuse Orangemen to move on to the Elite 8.
...its too bad this team finally decided to start playing with some passion with only nine games left in the season. If they would have done this a month ago we'd be talking about what seed they're going to end up with not if they're going to make it.
...15th best goaltending? I think not. Lundqvist was out of his mind tonight.
...Captain Clutch citing.
...did anyone else think that Jokinen was a better player than this?
...who knew Jody Shelley would make Anisimov a better player. I don't think we're going to see Brian Boyle back in the line-up anytime soon with the chemistry on the fourth line right now.
...amazing what Avery can do for this team when Torts takes the reigns off him.
...here's hoping Callahan isn't that injured. That guy is a warrior.
...i can't take Redden anymore. Is this guy even trying out there? You're getting paid $6 million a year. At least act like you're interested.
...big night as Boston, Atlanta (in OT) and Philadelphia (in OT) lose. Rangers now just three points out of eighth and five out of seventh.
...Rangers look to keep this going in Toronto on Saturday night.
