Good morning everyone! There should be plenty of smiles to go along with your breakfast as you all talk about last night’s great win in Tampa Bay! The guys finally looked like a team and Lundqvist finally looked like his Vezina Trophy winning self. Rick Nash finally got himself on the board and Conor Allen made his debut. If you missed our preview of Allen, you can read it here. Will did an amazing job previewing Allen and he was exactly on point with his assessment.
Here is a nice little collection of photos of our team from last week. CBS New York did a nice job getting a good spread of the guys in each of the games. They show their Ranger love well.
Here’s some good news for us about Marc Staal. Hopefully he returns to the lineup soon. Though I’m not ready to send Allen back down to Hartford yet. It will be a huge sigh of relief to get Staal back into our line-up; no one likes to have a team member outwith an injury.
Steve Zipay has a little bit more insight as to the status of Stralman in this article. Stralman is another very important part of the team and his return will be another great milestone for the team on this road trip. His return will help ground the defense just that much more.
Stay tuned throughout the day for more great pieces and info about the Rangers and don’t forget to get caught up on our great pieces that went up a little late last night.
