If you have been perusing this blog for any period of time you would know that I am not a guy who puts much stock in wins and losses. To me, it will be always about the quality of play on the ice. My theory is, if the team plays good solid hockey, and sticks with their system, then they will, en masse, win more games than they lose. With that said I do feel that the Rangers did not play all that well tonight, probably did not deserve to win, but I am very happy that the Rangers did win tonight. Why? The simple fact is, they showed guts. They didn’t play as hard as you would like, they didn’t execute the gameplan like they should have, they didn’t play smart hockey. However, they did continuously come back from 1 goal deficits, and showed a tremendous will to win at these junctures. Twice tying the game mere seconds after going down a goal. Of course, to be fair, they were helped by some terrible goaltending by Brian Elliot, but sometimes you get games like this. Not every goalie in the league is at the same caliber as Henrik Lundqvist, that is why he is being paid what he is being paid. When the other goalie craps the bed, you have to take advantage. Tonight, the Rangers did.

They were led by Marian Gaborik who had 2 assists, and numerous goal scoring chances generated by some hard work. The on again off again superstar needs to play like this with more regularity as he has been held off the scoresheet far too often this year.

Ok, that’s all for now. Going to catch some z’s.
