New York Rangers seem to be back on track

The New York Rangers played one of their best games of the season last night and it could not have happened at a better time. Going into the game the Rangers were just two points ahead of the Florida Panthers and in desperate need of a win and in desperate need to play more consistent hockey.  The Blueshirts came out strong in the first period, but did their best work in the second scoring three goals and getting the best of, Martin Brodeur. This win puts the Rangers in great shape in terms of a play-off berth, but they must keep playing great hockey to finish the regular season.

The Rangers will travel to Carolina Thursday to play the well rested  Hurricanes who have not played since Saturday.

Carolina will be a difficult opponent as they have won a league best six straight games and have not lost at home in nine games. Thursday will also be Cam Ward bobble head night and rightfully so as Ward has been great as of late. He is playing much like he did in 2006 when he won the Conn Smythe and the Stanley Cup. If the Rangers can play the same fast and physical game they played against the Devils this should be great tilt.

Hopefully he holds the stick like that against the Rangers...

    The NHL thought it was worth a fine and one game suspension…
