Despite the situation at center (albeit temporary), NYR are feeling good positive about puck drop.

Well, well. St. Louis gives J.T. Miller a big shoulder to the chest, and Nash comes over and throws Miller away & tells him to back off

Doesn't sound like J.T. Miller has much support on the team. Must take a lot to piss off Marty St. Louis...

Oddsmakers put NYR at 16-1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2015. And the Ramones had something to say about it.

Ben, great year to be a Ranger fan, a little luck we would have won 2 of those 3 OT games and we hoist the Cup, even though they were better than us.

When it comes to Michael Del Zotto, Hextall knows all.
The new GM of the Philth knows exactly what happened to MDZ in NYC. Or at least he thinks he does.

Douglas Murray gets tossed in a hurry. What's with this guy?
 
Montreal’s Douglas Murray ejected in first game back from suspension. Will he get another?
Douglas Murray is known as a hard hitter – a devastating hitter – but he's never played dirty doing it. Before this month started, Murray had never been suspended before. That's quickly changed, though. Just a week and a half ago, Murray was given a match penalty and ejected from Montreal's game ...

Evening all,

Here's my take on tonight's 2-1 Rangers victory over the Buffalo Sabres at MSG. Second place in the Metro Division - along with home ice, is in the bag.
 
Rangers avoid getting Buffaloed

Never in doubt, right? Well...

So the Rangers win their final home game of the regular season tonight,
2-1 over the Buffalo Sabres.

Wasn't easy, folks. But the Blueshirts will take the two points and get out of Dodge.

Coupled with the Flyers 4-2 loss to the Bolts tonight, Gotham clinches the second seed in the Metro Division - along with home ice vs. the 3rd seed.

Some quick thoughts on tonight's tilt:

61-derful in the clutch: Rick Nash nets the game winner at 18:18 of the third period. Great pass by Martin St. Louis to set it up. Now, Nash is tied Messier, Jagr, and Don Maloney for the franchise record in game-winning goals in a season with 9.

Pouliot's penchant for poor penalties: Benoit Pouliot giveth - scored the 1-1 goal and sometime he taketh away. That o-zone penalty with a little less than 5 minutes remaining in the third period was inexcusable.

Playing without power: Rangers took the collar on the PP tonight. Zip goals on 4 chances. Gotta be better starting next week.

Feast or famine with SOG: 18 shots in the second period. 3 shots in the third. Fortunately, one went in.

Home sour home: Rangers went 20-17-4 during the home portion of their schedule this season. Now that they've got home ice to start the play-ons, they need to reverse that trend in a hurry.

Bottom line: 45-31-5 heading into Saturday night's regular-season finale against the Canadiens in Montreal.

Thanks for reading. Most appreciated.

And also, please let me know your thoughts on tonight's contest and what you think the Rangers need to improve upon, as they head into the play-ons.

Good night.
