The New York Rangers won tonight 3 to 2. That's it for hockey. The boxing match was as follows:
A total of 94 minutes in penalties were assessed, including 46 in the first period when New York's Chris Drury fought Richards and was given a major and a misconduct. The Rangers were given 54 minutes in penalties overall. Philadelphia's Jason Smith squared off with Colton Orr and Brendan Shanahan , and New York's Jason Strudwick fought Riley Cote in other bouts.
Pre-season is over. Our free agents feel like Rangers willing to take/give a hit. Everyone is whispering the Stanley Cup. Five days away and will be there with bells on!
Look for The Dark Ranger wearing a cape in Section 118 on Thursday - home opener.
