I don't know about you guys, but I see this as a pretty important game for the Rangers tonight. With a decent Columbus team and the Caps waiting in the wings, its not hard to envision a loss tonight turning into a four game losing streak and sending half the fanbase back into the utter panic they've been in and out of all year.
I've heard both the coach and players both say that the heavy November schedule prevented them from solid practicing, and that the days off after Sunday night's game has enabled that. So that obviously means Rangers 6-1 over the Sens tonight right? Seriously though, coach and team need to back that up tonight with a strong performance.
I know many fans were saying that its been hard to sit on Sunday night's loss for four days waiting for another game, and they wished the Rangers had come right back and played Monday, but I think the Rangers were just drained Sunday night, and everybody needs a break from work, even if its playing hockey. As a fan, sometimes I need a break too.
Larry Brooks says the Rangers "are at a crossroads", but aren't they always with Larry?
