In two preseason games the New York Rangers have scored 8 goals and are 1-1. In Friday's win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the Rangers got four goals from four different kids including outstanding games from Anthony Duclair and J.T. Miller and a very solid performance from Cedrick Desjardins who stopped all 13 shots that he faced. There was a lot to love about Friday's win. The Blackhawks played all of their big guns and the Rangers only played some of theirs and yet the kids won a 4-1 game on the road. You have to love that. I hope we get to have some more smiles for tonight's game against the Flyers. The Rangers will be playing Philly again tomorrow night in Philly so this is a fun little two-game series right smack dab in the middle of preseason. I likes it.

Mike's Bodily Fluid to Watch: Blood
Because there will be blood, you can guarantee it. I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE.
Wayne Simmonds on the rivalry with NYR: "I don't wanna say we're gonna be out for blood, but we're gonna be out for blood."— Flyers Nation (@FlyersNation) September 26, 2014
Oh, Wayne Simmonds, you scary.
Yay! More Anthony Duclair and kids!
Seriously though, watch all of the players tonight, especially the kids and the guys fighting it out for spots on the bottom six. I don't know about you, but I'm looking for another four goal night from the guys. I think we should make it a tradition.
Let's go Rangers.
