Rangers Get The Blues

Okay, trying to deal with the loss - moving forward. Tonight we head out on the road - where we seem to do better than we do at home anyway.

We play the St. Louis Blues. And getting the Blues seems appropriate somehow - because our consecutive point game streak came to a crashing halt Thursday night as we wasted some of the best goaltending we are ever likely to see in our lifetimes in a 2-0 loss to Ottawa (the 2nd goal was an empty netter - so the usually flawless phantom goalie, Mr. M. T. Nett let us down)

The Blues play over in the Western conference - where they are 20-19-7 (to our 22-18-7). Out West that is good enough for 13th place.

They have scored eactly 120 goals and so have we. Of course - that number looked better last week before we were shut out twice. And the Blues let up 131 goals to our 125. So they are a lot like us.

They are coming off a 1-0 shutout of Minnesota.

Dave Pucks Predicts: I don't, really. No idea what we're going to see from the hockey club tonight. Hoping for the best.
Loose Pucks: my 11 year old son Pucks Junior is playing in his first ever game in a floor hockey league on Tuesday night. I hope the little guy does well.
