The Boys Win 2 at O2 Arena!

Another Win in Prague!.jpg
Rangers 2 Lightning 1
New York won the 2nd of 2 games at the O2 Arena in Prague for a sweep against Tampa Bay, once more dominating puck possesion and shots. (39-19)
Wade Reddon scored a power play goal to tie the game in period 2, off a brilliant pass from new Ranger Markus Naslund. Scott Gomez scored deciding goal about 8 minutes later. Since this was technically a 'home' game for the Rangers, our favorite tune was played after both goals: NY Rangers Goal Celebration Song
Henrik Lundqvist gave up a 1st period goal to Adam Hall, but that was it for the 'Ning. 18 year old (and #1 overall NHL draft pick) Steven Stamkos hit the crossbar with a shot from the slot that gave King Henrik a scare.
Barry Melrose is now 0-2 in his return to coaching from ESPN. (Hang in there, Barry)
The boys get a few days to deal with jet-lag, and face the Black Hawks @ MSG on Friday.
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
