Happiness Returns – Rangers Win A Hockey Game

It wasn’t exactly pretty – but the Rangers hung tough and beat the Winnipeg Jets on the road.  A first period goal by Zuccarello (nice rebound put back) and a second period goal by Brassard, (a power play goal!).  And the game winner – Kreider on the breakaway where the puck and then Kreider himself ended up in the net.

We’ll take it.  Lundqvist getting better with a 0.941 save percentage. 

What Did We Learn?  The world didn’t end.  We won.

Assist “Sisters”:   Assists for Brassard, Stepan, McDonagh, Nash, Yandle and J.T. Miller – who is lucky to be alive after Byfuglien cross checked his neck.  I hope the league suspends him.

Did Special Teams Determine The Outcome Of This Game?  Happily yes!  We were 1 for 3 on the powerplay and killed off 2 as well.  That was the difference in a one goal game.

Where Do We Stand?  We’re still first in the Metro, and now tops in the East as well.

Oh My - What Will Happen Next?  Thursday Minnesota come to town.

Non-Sequitur of the day:  It’s my sister’s birthday!
