New Yorkers can find some comfort - at least there's one good thing to watch at Madison Square Garden. Last night, in a 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Jaromir Jagr picked up his 100th point of the season and reaching a milestone in Ranger history. Only five other Rangers have reached the century mark before. Henrik Lundqvist is near his own Ranger record. With three more victories, he will become the first rookie goalie to reach 30 wins.
Jagr's points came on a goal in the 1st period goal, and three assists in the 2nd period. His first assist in the 2nd broke Rod Gilbert's Ranger record for points (97) by a right wing. By the end of the game, fans were chanting "M.V.P." for Jagr, who is the first player to reach the 100-point mark in the NHL this season.
Despite the fact that there are 15 games remaining, the Rangers are clearly bound for the playoffs - the question is who will their opponent be? The Rangers are four points ahead of the Philadelphia Flyers, putting them as the 3rd seed. If the playoffs started today, they would face the Devils in a Lincoln Tunnel series.
