Rangers 2, Bruins 1

The New York Rangers (41-21-2) defeated the Boston Bruins (33-25-6)  by the score of 2-1. For a box score, click here.

3 Stars


1st Star - Boston Bruins logo (For causing Lundqvist to somehow bring his game to an even higher level)


2nd Star - Clendening (For crashing into Grabner at practice causing him to miss tonight's game and ultimately resulting in the emergency recall of Buchnevich from Hartford.)
3rd Star - Arizona Coyotes (For trading the Rangers Lindberg in exchange for Ethan "I've Spent Time In The ECHL This Year" Werek. Full disclosure, I hated the trade at the time.)


Post Game Cocktail Recommendation



In recognition of tonight's bigly response by Buchnevich after his one game demotion to the Wolfpack, I give you President Trump's favorite cocktail, the White Russian.

1st Star - The 5pm Start (Thankfully we didn't have to stay up too late watching this one)
2nd Star - The Walking Dead (A new episode allowed me to immediately take my mind off this loss)
3rd Star - The Trade Deadline (I love this time of year in the NHL as GMs have already begun wheeling and dealing)


Post Game Cocktail Recommendation



With tonight being the Rangers 5th game in 8 days they looked both mentally and physically tired, so I decided to go with The Sleepwalker because that's pretty much what they did against Columbus.

3rd Star - Zuccarello in the shootout (Damn he's smooth)



Post Game Cocktail Recommendation



The only way to calm my nerves after that intense overtime session is with some Ketamine aka Horse Tranquilizer.
