Rangers net go-ahead goal, by Ray Haddad at flickr

  • Rangers 3 Pittsburgh 0: If New York pulls off the impossible, coming back from a 3-0 deficit, the turning point will be a Henrik Lundqvist save in the second period when Pittsburgh had a penalty shot. Lundqvist’s save was only part of his great night as he made huge saves every time the Rangers needed one.

    Jarmoir Jagr played like this might have been his last game on MSG ice as he scored two goals while taking a vicious hit on the first one. Brandon Dubinsky scored on a great play very early in the third to give New York a 2-0 lead. Give Tom Renney credit for finally realizing that benching Backman was the way to go. Strudwick didn’t do much on the stat sheet, but he didn’t commit any stupid penalties either.

  • Detroit 8 Yankees 4: Ian Kennedy continued the trend of Yankees’ starting pitchers showing they can’t keep their team in the game. Hughes is on the DL, Kennedy can’t pitch, what do the Yanks do now?
