Oh, you know, the team beating up on the Rangers.
If the Rangers have been playing like this all season we have no idea who they’re beating. Like Atlantapeg? The Bruins?
Sad times for the Bruins right now, too, btw.
By the end of this game the Rangers just looked frigging demoralized and it had nothing to do with Sidney Crosby, really. Sid was very quiet. Poised and quiet. You can tell he is reeling himself in as he wants to charge through a thousand men, eviscerating them with his broken stick as he puts goals through all of the Vezina winners ever with the sheer force of his mind.
But: like 16 minutes. He is taking it slow. Can still protect the puck like a beast.
We’ll see what happens when he gets his flow back.
But the real story of the game was Kris Letang, who logged all of the minutes, and whose hair is actually named The Flow. Maybe.
He was beyond perfect in everything he attempted and was a +5, with 1 assist.
I mean Crosby was good too. +3 and 1 assist.
LOOK AT HIM HE IS SO HAPPY DO YOU SEE
But he just couldn’t match the class or offensive prowess of Matt Cooke, who embarrassed Stu Bickel for his first tally and also tipped another one in. Think: without Matt Cooke in this game, very little happens. Also apparently Tyler Kennedy was working on passing the puck this game. Man. Things just keep getting more surreal. It’s like someone slipped the Infinite Improbability Drive into the basement of Madison Square Garden.
The team is healthy.
No one died.
Troy and Trina Crosby somehow didn’t create a black hole in MSG with their presence.
We got this beautiful photograph of Jordan Staal and Steve Eminger out of the deal. Is this even from this century?
SO BASICALLY HOW COOL DO WE FEEL RIGHT NOW
We have a very tough schedule here at the end. But with enough swagger, we can get it done.
This won’t be like last season.
