Just win, baby. The Rangers took care of business at home tonight as they disposed of the Senators, 2-1. The third period was a roller coaster ride with the Rangers clinging to a one goal lead. It felt like Senators took about 100 shots in the last ten minutes of the game as the Rangers were clearly playing defensive hockey. I can’t tell you how many times I saw Alfredsson, Spezza, Karlsson, and that jerk Neil take open looks at Henrik. Without fail, Henrik stopped all comers and the Rangers stymied the potent Ottawa attack. The Garden was rocking and the Rangers are advancing.

The Rangers won’t have much time to regroup as Game 1 against the Caps will be this weekend. The Caps impressed a lot of people with their play against the Bruins. The Rangers will need to figure out Braden Holtby and slow down the dangerous Alex Ovechkin. The Caps and Rangers split the season series at two games a piece which included a non-contest on April 7th that the Caps won, 4-1. None of that matters now and the Rangers must win another four games before advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.
