Bandwagon City vs. Blueshirt Nation.  KFC and the know-nothings against a storied original six franchise.  Seven battles eight.  Doesn’t matter how you slice it – tonight’s game is beyond huge for both teams.  The Rangers need two points to avoid joining the Devils on the wrong side of the standings.  The Isles need to sharpen their mental game and get ready for competitive bump of playoff hockey.  Plus there’s that whole next-door-neighbor, historic hatred, rivalry revival angle so yeah, I guess you could say that tonight’s going to be just a bit more special than the average night at the Coliseum.
