As Good As It Gets - Ranger's take 4th straight - beat the Hurricane 5-3

My Brothers! Our New York Rangers are playing as well as I can EVER remember them playing. And that goes back a long while - when Dave Pucks was a little Puck himself I can remember watching a black and white TV as Jean Ratelle and Rod Gilbert skated the Garden ice.

Last night - for the 2nd straight game - our heroes surrendered the first goal. And then - for the 2nd straight game - they committed the mortal Hockey sin of giving up a goal very late in a period. And they didn't have their best player Henrik Lundqvist in net.

They won anyway,

Sean Again: our resurgent Sean Avery got the game winner - wristing in a nice rising shot off a wonderful Gaborik-al (yes I'm making up a word) feed in the slot.

Gift of Gab: Marian got a goal and an assist and is continuing to have a great bounce-back season (scoring points for the 10th game - when last year he "pointed" in only 14 contests all season.

Richards - on fire right now and making Glen Stather look like a genius for acquiring him (not an easy task this milenium for Slats). Another assist - another night with points.

Man-Up! 4th straight game with a Powerplay Goal. And a perfect 1-1 on the penalty kill. Win this battle and you'll win a lot of games. Rangers did exactly that last night.

Other Goals For: Callahan - the Captain's catch!, and Sauer,

Other Assists: Del Zotto - Dubinxly - Girardi, Anisimov, Woyitka, Stepan, Boyle and Hagalin.

So enjoy it Ranger Fans because's no telling when this streak will end.
