Deja Vu All Over Again

- This seems kinda familiar, doesn't it? It's like a second opening day of the season, and once again, the Rangers open in Philly. Assuming that Jagr plays with his groin, Kaspar with his toe, Tyutin with his visa, and Betts with his knee, it will seem even more familiar. Because with Weekes in goal and Prucha sidelined, the Blueshirts will field the same lineup as on opening day #1, with the exception of Petr Sykora in place of Jamie Lundmark. [EDIT: I guess I'm assuming that Hollweg will play rather than Nieminen, but that actually may not be the case.] Jamie Lundmark? That seems sooo long ago! Lundmark actually started the Rangers back from a 3-1 defecit with a second period goal, his final one before being traded.

Just watched the Flyers lose to the Devils in a shootout. You know those Bud Light commercials with the guy who dares to stay at work until 5:05.....on a Friday? They should have one that goes "I'm going to watch the Devils on Fox Sports.....with the sound on!" Man, those guys are unbearable. "Oh, Marty, Marty, Marty," gushed Chico after he shut the door on the Orange Crud. It's a scheduling break for the Rangers to get the Flyers on the second night of back-to-back games right off the break, and I'm looking for a big effort from the Blueshirts. Renney has done everything right, at least in terms of preparation, and I think he'll have his team ready, at least mentally; and I'm looking for a sharp performance by Weekes.

- Lundmark has six goals total for the season, along with 11 assists.

    You're right -- i feel better already! The idiot Flyers did a perfect job in giving us a wakeup call. After that, we were toying with them at times.

    Your boy Betts looked pretty good in his return.
