Tonight Rangers fans we will be treated to our first meeting with the Philadelphia Flyers, one we've been anticipating for over six months - retribution is in order. Tonight the Rangers enter the Wachovia Center with a different attitude - "You Talkin' to Me?"
If you haven't blocked it from your noggin, the last time we played Philly was the final regulation game of last season for both New York and Philly and it came down to a shootout - Lundqvist vs Boucher (I think) or in other words, an elite goalkeeper (Henrik) vs their third stringer. It was do-or-die for both teams. Whoever won made the playoffs. We lost. As luck would have it, the Flyers fought their way to the Stanley Cup vs the Chicago Blackhawks.
We all recall what happened there. They lost.
So this picture should remind everyone watching tonight that they lost the Cup. Tonight will be a battle of epic proportions - playing Philly always is. The Flyers are currently 2nd in the Eastern Conference (7-4-1) and the New York Rangers sit 7th in the Eastern Conference (6-4-1).
Keep in mind that the Rangers have posted a record of 14-3-2 (30 pts) in their last 19 games at Philadelphia, dating back to a 3-1 win on Mar. 27, 2004. May the better team win tonight.
Boy, I hate those Flyers....and boy do we hate Daniel Carcillo. Expect a game featuring Sean Avery, Brandon Prust and (hopefully dressing tonight) Derek "the Boogeyman" Boogaard to go front and center with Carcilloface, Scott Hartsmelly, and Mike Richardosuck. You want PIMS? Tonight will give you PIMS.
As one of our readers said last night in response to a hopeful Derek Boogaard undressing of Daniel Carcillo, "RELEASE THE KRACKEN!!!!" Hilarious.
Let's Go Rangers!!!!!!
