I say, I got nothing to worry about…
Because the Rangers play Thursday. And they will win on Thursday.
They will win because I’ve felt in my bones all along this would go to six games.
I’ve felt all along that they will win.
It’s game like last night they need to have that proverbial glitch in the matrix. It’s something that’s off but it will rectify itself.
In 1994, I had one guy telling me, “No doubts, no doubts” in game 5 1994 Stanley Cup Finals.
In 1994, I had a guy telling me during Game 6 of 1994 Stanley Cup Finals, “Not. To. WORRY!”
The Rangers lost both those games. But they won the games that mattered, of course, and went on to win the Cup.
But just because there was a fucked up game in Montreal last night doesn’t mean that there is a momentum “shift” or any of that crap.
Let’s talk about Momentum Shifts with this video.
Yes, I know I’m looking at shit that happened 20 years ago. But like that year, we cannot deny that this is a special time to be a Ranger fan. It’s a special time for the Rangers. This is a special team.
They’ll have motivation in the form of Henrik Lundqvist, who was pulled just before a game-tying rally, only to have his replacement give up three more goals in a blow out. But when Rene Bourque says that Lundqvist hasn’t been “much better” than Dustin Tokarski…well, to say that shots have been fired would be an understatement. This has been a dirty series, a hard fought series.
I just can’t help but think…
The Rangers play Thursday.
They’ll win Thursday.
Finish the damn thing.
