The Rangers pounded the Florida Panthers last night winning 6-1. I’m glad they took that one last night because it’s a tough road ahead for the Rangers. They play Dallas on Tuesday, St. Louis on Thursday, and Phoenix on Saturday. The game against the Stars is at home while the games against the Blues and Coyotes are on the road. Also with that win last night the Rangers pulled within one point of the division leading Flyers. The Rangers have one game in hand on the Flyers.
Also don’t forget that 24/7 is airing on Wednesday at 10 PM EST on HBO. With both teams playing really well it’s going to be awesome to see how both teams act and prepare for each game. As much as I have a dislike for the Flyers I don’t think it would be as fun to watch 24/7 if they were tanking their season. I really hope there is points at stake for the division lead on January 2nd just to pump up the hype for the game.
