If you're a New York Rangers fan, you have to be elated about tonight's win over the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 3-2 in OT. When Chris Drury deflected a shot past Nikolai Khabibulin - not only did it give the Rangers the win, but it also stuck it to the NHL and its garbage rules.
I'm sorry... but this game, in my estimation, was embarrassing for the NHL and the powers that be. I hope Gary Bettman watches a tape of this game to see what a travesty the post-lockout rule changes have caused. There's no more hiding the facts, the fans of this great game are not stupid. You can not tell me or the fans that this is what we want to watch night after night. This one really takes the cake!
As for the Rangers - unbelievable! That's all I can say. I tip my hat to the Blueshirts for persevering through this "butchering of a game". As for the NHL, go look at yourselves in the mirror. You might not like what you see. I certainly don't! Over and out!
