Hey, first of all I am not doing cartwheels after the Rangers 3-1 victory over the Islanders at MSG... but what I will do is give the Rangers credit for the hard work and effort given in most of tonight's game. Nigel Dawes, Scott Gomez (PPG), and an empty netter by Fast Freddie Sjostrom were the goal scorers for the Blueshirts. Solid goaltending by the King tonight and great inspirational play by the youngsters contributed to the much needed victory. Dubinsky hit everything in sight, Dawes created offense, Callahan being... well, just being Callahan, and I want to give a special tip of the hat to Petr Prucha - who was energetic, got into a scrap, picked up an assist, and played a great all around game! I also would like to point out Scott Gomez's play. He said it himself, "I wasn't playing well". Well, Scott, you showed up tonight and here's to hoping it's a kick start for the rest of the season for you. Again, I won't get too excited, after all it was the Islanders (worst team in the NHL). Not only that, but the PP sucked in general (Gomez caught a break when Danis mishandled his shot) and the usual goal scoring drought that has been a problem all season was evident yet again tonight. But, there's a saying, "Winners laugh and tell jokes, losers say deal". Well, the Blueshirts won, got the 2 precious points, and now head to Buffalo in a good mood. Over and out!
Update: You know the drill... I'm away at Quinnipiac again doing some games on the radio. Also, I'm going to the Garden on Sunday for the Andy Bathgate and Harry Howell night against the Leafs! I'll answer any comments when I get back.
