Ryan Murphy went from goat to hero in last night's 3-2 OT victory. Got a few emails from fans about the captain after the tilt. Some were upset with his play. I think Murphy has been stellar this season and just had a bad third period Sunday.
As I mentioned to some, imagine him on another team running circles around the Rangers? No thanks.
A busy week ahead for GM/coach Steve Spott with all his Super Series duties. He's off to Montreal today, back Tuesday, then Val D'Or Wednesday, in Guelph Thursday and home again Friday. Life of a coach in demand is busy.
Still no Andrew Crescenzi sighting with the Toronto Marlies. He is with the team but has yet to play a game. The Rangers still have 10 days to get their OA protected list down from eight to four. My guess is that the four will include - Nick Czinder, Domenic Alberga, Crescenzi and Jeff Braithwaite.
