No. Rangers for me to win. Rangers are confident after their huge win versus Toronto and have momentum to their favor. I really hope Talbot is in net and not Losequist. Still with L in net Rangers is my play

What? Momentum? There is no momentum game to game, there is only momentum IN A GAME.

Lundqvist gets the nod. I too would've prefered Talbot. Lund was in for the road loss not too far back to this same Blue Jackets team. That makes this a divisional home stand revenge game. Advantage Rangers. These games are looked at as being worth double points. (what 1 team gains comes out of the others pocket). Rangers are going to fight hard to make sure the balance doesn't get out of whack.

I can't shake off the feeling that Lundquist's contract extension could turn into the one Ilya Byzgalov had with the Flyers. Hope the Rangers made the right decision by giving him 7years, otherwise would be a waste of some $$$s

Bobrovsky has lost 5 in a row vs Rangers. I wish Talbot got the start I'd be all over the PL. I love that Lund = Bryz compare above roflmao. No goalie should ever get a contract more than 3yrs long, The percent of goalies that have careers that are long and prosperous is very slim. Even a possible hall of fame status goalie Luongo was made undesirable due to a screwy contract and a changing salary cap. When stuff like that and big buy outs starts happening it's signs of real bad business isn't it? The crazy thing is that one team watches another team make a mistake like DiPietro or Bryz and then we still see contracts like Luongo and Lund (different class i know). I'm a Leafs fan and I think Bernier is pretty good (not that much better than Reims tho) and I'm dreading the day (way too soon) that they have to resign him. 10 years ago the contracts were so bad no GM would touch the team and now they are signing a losing crew to big contracts all over again. It's a long way from the same as it was but big contracts and an uncertain playoff repeat isn't promising. Anyways the important thing is Bobrovsky should be rusty and is no good against this team anyway. It's actually surprising they are choosing to start him in a hostile place like NY and not wait for a home game against an easier opponent. Huh maybe they don't like him
