Okay, since I wrote in anger last night, here is a short summary of the Rangers' new players.
The same evening (night time for me) as the trades, Rangers played Pittsburgh. And goddamn what a great game, and goddamn what a success for the new players!
Ryane Clowe came from San José earlier in the day. He is big and strong and usually a good sniper, bit not this year, when he has been goal-less. Until last night. He stroke no less than two times, and also got an assist. His first thing in the game was also to give away a nice clean tackle to a Penguin, just to introduce himeself for the Garden audience.
Derick Brassard came to the Rangers in the Gaborik trade, and arrived to Madison Square Garden six minutes before warm-up. He scored too, and also got three assists!
John Moore, defenseman, came with the same plane after the same trade and HE SCORED TOO!
Besides this, the rest of the team played brilliantly, and they could beat Pittsburg 6-1, depsite the Penguins' all great trades in the past week.The thirs player in the trade, Derek Dorsett, is injured, and obviously couldt make any points last night.
Now things starts to feel good again. If the Rangers plays like this, there will be no problem reaching the playoff, and once there, they can go far. Really far. The furthest.
