Cam Ward was absolutely brilliant. I’m not sure that’s even doing justice for just how well the former Conn Smythe winner played. Sure, Henrik was superb as well, but he couldn’t touch the performance that Ward had. But somehow the Rangers won. When was the last time you could say that? The opposing goalie puts on an absolute show, but the Rangers manage to pull out a win. It probably hasn’t happened more than a handful of times in the past 2-3 years.

Tonight we had excellent performances by Marian Gaborik, Sean Avery and Brandon Dubinksy. Only 1 of whom has been consistent throughout this year. Dubinsky has been the Rangers best player from the drop of the puck on day 1 all the way till the halfway point of the season. He only needs 10 more points to match his career high, a truly amazing performance for a kid that has taken extremely large steps this year. Sean Avery on the other hand has had a pretty mediocre season, he hasn’t scored a goal since October, and has rightfully seen his playing time steadily deteriorate as a result. It’s good to see Sean playing well, as it’s something we haven’t seen very often this season. Gabby too looked great, and although he is having a statistically good season (22 points in 27 games), he should be able to give us so much more. If he plays more like he did tonight, he would go a long way towards giving us that.

I’ll take these 2 points and run like a maniac. Great win by the boys in blue. Just like I said they needed to be given a punishing skate, and were. Looks like Torts and I are on the same wavelength here, he read what I was reading and nipped it in the bud right away. They played the way they must in order to be successful, generating a plethora of high quality scoring chances, however Cam Ward was absolutely brilliant in negating all these efforts. On most normal night the Rangers would have potted 4 or 5. That’s all for now. Night all.
