Can you freaking believe this kid?  College drop out to broadway hat in a matter of weeks.  NCAA champion to dark horse Conn Smythe joke before he’s played 10 games in the NHL.  If this isn’t our year to revel in Lord Stanley’s glory, well, let’s just say that the future still looks as good as a tuxed up Lundqvist.  Holy hell, New York.  Screw the Lin hype, it’s Kredier time, baby!

The Rangers are now a quarter of the way towards their Washington redemption, and after watching this first game I have to admit I’m not the least bit scared anymore.  The Capitals may not be as offensively explosive as they once were, but Dale Hunter’s admittedly efficient grind ‘em down style is perfect for the Blueshirts match up wise.  That’s our brand of hockey baby, and we play it better than anyone left standing.  No one scores the back breaking game winner half way through the third like we do.  Case in point, Chris Kredier why just this afternoon.  As long as Lundy and the D keep their game going strong and stuffing everything down low, I’m nothing but confident in the blueshirts beating the Caps.  In fact, I might want to revise my prediction back to New York in 5 after watching that one…

So the Rangers are doing their part to recreate the magic of ’94.  How’d those Knicks end up playi…oh nevermind. @Osgood_StoolNYC
