This one needs to be short, almost 5 am here, and I need to wake up early, yikes. Anyway, I felt the Rangers played a pretty decent game when going toe to toe with inarguably the hottest team in the NHL, and arguably the best team in the NHL. They almost pulled out a win, and probably would have won if not for taking 9, count em, 9 penalties, at least 3 of which were unnecessary. The Caps absolutely blitzed us on the main advantage, as we blitzed them, and they beat us. I can’t be too unhappy because I felt like we played a fairly good game, however when you hear about the Devils getting my boy Kovalchuk, this loss feels especially painful. It’s not that we are super far out of the playoffs, the problem right now is games in hand. Every team we are fighting against has at least 1 game in hand, and most of them have 3. If those teams all pick up just 1 point per game in hand (as most of them tend to do, produce at a PPG rate or better), the Rangers would be 2 points ahead of the 13th place (in the East) Islanders, and would have a top 6 pick in the draft. That’s not good folks, not good at all, especially with the insanely difficult schedule we have coming up. That’s all for now, I need to hit the sack.
