...that was a night of missed opportunities as the Rangers could not bang home anything. They had numerous wide open chances on the doorstep all night and either missed the net or hit the defenseman. Having said that, very entertaining game.
...where has Boogaard been hiding that shot his entire career?
...i was ready to bury Boyle in Hartford before the season started now he could be headed to the All Star game if he keeps this up.
...starting to get tired of Del Zotto's giveaways leading to opponent goals. And that was his fault not Rozsival's on the winner.
...can someone tell Dubinsky he's the league's second leading scorer and the Rangers don't need him breaking his hand in a fight.
...Sauer just gained a whole mess of respect in the locker room.
...Lundqvist is just not good against the Caps.
...Staal and Avery are still looking for their jocks after Ovechkin danced around both of them before Knuble's goal.
...hate to get on the refs again, but man that's a second straight awful game by the zebras. How does Fedotenko's goal not count? He got pushed into the crease!!!
...no points from Frolov, but I thought him and Stepan were a lot better tonight. FYI, as noted by reader Riley, Frolov has only one more goal than Boogaard. Yikes.
...back at it Thursday night against the Sabres.
