Sometimes Nothing Is The Best Thing - Rangers stand pat - beat Devils 2-0.

Boom! (Shakalaka!)

Just like that - the Rangers are back!

Glen Sather thought long and hard about busting up the team that leads the NHL East. He thought about offering players and picks to Columbus for star forward Rick Nash.

But for once - Glen did the right thing - nothing. So - the Rangers could go back to playing hockey without looking over their shoulders - without worrying that they were being scouted for possible trades. The team wanted to stay together - they earned the right - and in the end they got their wish.

And so - the team avenged a recent 1-0 loss to the Devils with a tightly fought 2-0 shut down of the team named for Satan last night.

The Rangers let up just 13 shots on goal. 13 shots. That's like one period worth of shots - but that's all we let up. And Hank handled them all.

And on offense we had the dynamic duo of Callahan and Hagelin. The Captain set up Hags from behind the goal line and the Michigan Rookie beat Broduer late in the first. Then - with Marty pulled in the last 2 minutes - Hags showed his amazing skating speed to beat everyone to the puck and feed Callahan for the easiest goal you'll ever see - a point-blank empty netter.

We win - we forget about Nash - and move on. Good deal.
