New York Rangers Game Day Thread: Rangers vs Canadiens, Game 1
Eastern Conference Finals!
Mike's Player to Watch: Henrik Lundqvist... and Batman
The Rangers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in seven games because they had Henrik Lundqvist in their crease. There were other players and other factors that contributed to the Rangers conquering the Pens in seven but there was no factor more important than Henrik Lundqvist being a better goalie than Marc-Andre Fleury. In this series the opposing goaltender is a very different breed than Fleury was. Price, like Lundqivst, is an elite goaltender, and this series could come down to which goaltender plays better than the other. If sh*t gets real, the Rangers should look to Batman to come up big with some hand-to-hand combat that Liam Neeson taught him in Tibet or whatever.
Let's go Rangers. Let's go Batman. Let's go playoffs.
