A Can of Hollweg Whoop-Ass Special

Though The Dark Ranger will not be able to watch the game or post this evening after the game, check here, here or here for reliable recaps of what we hope to be a win for The New York Rangers.

Even though Islander Goon-face Chris Simon is now fulfilling his suspension for high sticking Blueshirt Ryan Hollweg last season, expect plenty of retaliation for 40+ fights the Rangers & Islanders entertained during the pre-season last month. Put the kids to bed early for this one because it's going to be NC-17.

The official game notes are as follows:
The Rangers face off against the New York Islanders tonight at Nassau Coliseum (7:00 p.m.) and will look to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place Saturday night. The Blueshirts have posted a 1-1-0 record thus far and are currently tied for second place in the Atlantic Division. The Islanders, 2-1-0, enter tonight's contest having suffered their first defeat of the season to the Capitals, 2-1, on Monday in a matinee game in Long Island. Tonight's game will mark the first of eight meetings between the teams this season.

It is especially unsettling that the Islanders have a winning record this season thus far, again proving two seasons in a row that they are a contender and Ted Nolen knows a little something about hockey and working a system. Hopefully, New York Rangers coach Tom Renney is dishing out chemistry to the Blueshirt lines as you read this. According to the Rangers beat writers, tonight's lines are not changing and Coach is giving our veterans and prospects a little more breathing room as we're just in our third regulation game. Here's hoping.

Let's Go Rangers!
