...now that was a hockey game. Tough, nasty, end to end action. And of course a second straight Rangers win.
...looks like the injuries have really forced the Rangers players to step up and play like a team. Loving every minute of it.
...you can't over-emphasize the importance of what Avery did in the first period. The Bruins bench just explodes after Stuart blasts Fedotenko, then two seconds later Avery steals the momentum right back by sticking up for his teammate. It's about time this team started sticking up for each other.
...did I really say I would have been fine with Biron in there tonight? No way he makes that save on Caron in the third. Expect the King back in there tomorrow night.
...Anisimov continues to be the Rangers best player.
...despite the goal, I'm just not impressed with Frolov right now.
...great to see Staal redeem himself after his penalty helped the Bruins cut the lead to one.
...what was up with the refs jumping in early on both the Boogaard and Prust fights? Terrible.
...i said Callahan was a warrior last game, but he brought that word to another level tonight with the way he took on Chara all night. Fun to watch.
...another player that was fun to watch tonight was Prust. Let's just hope he's ok after the stick to the face.
...happy with the win, but still way too many penalties. None in the third so hopefully that's a step in the right direction.
...right back at it tomorrow night at MSG against the Devils who sat Kovalchuk as a healthy scratch tonight.
