Before the gamne started we were alerted of a terrible tragedy.Alexei Cherepanov,the Rangers top prospect died in Russia while playing for OMSK of the khl,he collapsed after a shift with former Ranger Jaromir Jagr.They apparently revived him 5 times but had problems with the ambulance being later and the defibrillator.A terrible tragedy,just 19 yrs old.RIP Alexei Cherepanov.
The Rangers stuck first on a surprise Brandon Dubinsky goal,this kid and his line continues to impress.Rangers had a good first,skating really well and Henrik didn't see many shots.Only bad thing is the first line just isn't clicking at the moment.
6:37 into the second Aaron Voros who is playing really good scores a PP goal to make it 2-0 Rangers,Dubie with an assist.John Madden of the devils cut the lead in half at the end of the period with the devs taking control of the play.3rd begins and Voros in front of the net deflects a Mara shot by blowdeur for a 3-1 lead that would hold up.Brandon Dubinsky with an unselfish play at the end opting to pass to Callahan for an empty net goal.Rangers win 4-1.Now all this talk about Voros being Avery's replacement and while I like the guy 5 games doesn't make a season,if he keeps this up consistently i would be thrilled.Still Avery > Voros.Brandon Dubinsky now has 7 points in 5 games,what a start for this kid,he is amazing and lets not forget Henrik who is now 4-0 and the Rangers 5-0 with a chance to break their record for best start on wednesday against the sabres.Knock on wood.
Soup for Voros,Dubie and Henrik
No soup for the first line
Next game:wednesday against the sabres
