Straka Strikes Thrice!

Rangers 3, Flyers 2 YAY!! After the winning streak of 5 followed by the losing streak of 7, I'm not going to allow myself to get overexcited about the current winning streak...
Oh, who am I kidding? Three! ¡Tres! Trois! Drei! *throws cat into the air, does a little dance*
Straka scored a goal in each period, here's #3: (click to enlarge this nice photo by Barton Silverman!)
Ranger fans then lost their heads, tossing their hats onto the ice. I always wonder if you can retrieve your thrown hat after the game, or do they just get thrown away?
Henrik Lundqvist was brilliant in net, especially the 2nd and 3rd periods, when he stopped a couple of breakaway chances to keep the Blueshirts lead intact. He did survive one momentary lapse of sanity, when he tried to score from his crease into the Flyers' empty net at the other end of the ice. His 'shot' hit Flyer Mike York in the chest, and York put the puck in past Lundqvist to bring Philly back to within 1 goal. D'oh! Oh well, a minor blemish on an otherwise lovely evening at The World's Most Famous Arena
