28-27-7: Heading To Break On A Strong Note
Apologies for forgetting to put something up about Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. As mentioned on the last post, I was trapped on a train so I missed it entirely. From the updates I was given by my dad and NYR34, it was another dismal first period, followed by an Avery penalty shot early in the second that sparked the bhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifig rally.
Oh, and the two fights in the game sucked, which I can attest to after watching the clips on Hockey Fights. Why Prust continues to reach out for the boards with his back hand is beyond me, but maybe that is why they brought in Jody Shelley - because the kid can't fight and Aaron Voros clearly shouldn't mess with the big boys. But they lost the fights and the team won and that is all that matters right about now. We'll just have to pray they can carry some of this momentum into the second 'half' of the season.
Let's go Rangers.
*PHW Three Stars
3-Vinny Prospal - one goal and one assist.
2-Henrik Lundqvist - 27 saves.
1-Erik Christensen - two goals and one assist.
Scotty Hockey Three Stars
-Didn't see it so I can't judge but the Ranger Pundit pointed out that the PHW got it wrong yet again by judging purely on numbers and not actual game circumstances. No surprise there, it is why I do my own stars every game.
