Rangers Finally Beat Islanders
There were a lot of Islanders fans at the game tonight. After the 0-3 run that the Rangers have had, they all seemed to have wangled tickets to see the Rangers fall again. But it was not to happen. The Rangers won conclusively 4-2 tonight, with excellent goaltending by Lundqvist and Jagr playing extremely well (although he does look like a 36 year old man playing a game predominated by guys in their early twenties). Brandon Dubinsky scored a goal, as did Jagr and Chris Drury, who has been on a mini-tear recently. The schadenfreude of seeing all those dejected Islanders fan as I went through the LIRR station on my way to the IRT is a guilty pleasure I am still savoring.
I am no longer linking to the Rangers, as the nyrangers.com website no longer seems to work. Their new general website is rangers.nhl.com, which appears to be part of the NHL's effort to have a more uniform look and feel for each teams website. The problem is that nyrangers.com is totally dead, and trying to go there generates the dreaded "no URL" error. I will start relinking next week if the current website appears to have permanent links.
