Opening Night Win!

Opening Game WIN!.jpg
Rangers 2 Lightning 1
The Boys traveled to the O2 Arena in Prague in the Czech Republic for the first of 2 games against Tampa Bay, and Brandon Dubinsky's 3rd period goal was the game-winner.

Henrik Lundqvist faced down some close-in chances by Vinny Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis, to keep things tidy while his teammates struggled to beat Mike Smith at the other end of the ice. Way to go, King Henrik!
Captain Chris.jpg
Before the start of the 2008-9 campaign, coach Tom Renney named Chris Drury the 25th captain in New York Rangers history, replacing the departed Jaromir Jagr.
Scott Gomez and (new free agent arrival) Markus Naslund are the alternate captains.
Naslund opened the scoring for New York, who outshot Tampa Bay 41-19.
Ok, thus begins another season of blogging my hockey team. =)
Kinda weird to start the NHL season overseas, but what the heck, this is a cheer that transcends boundaries, culture and language:
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
