Picking Up Where They Left Off

The New York Rangers smoked the Philadelphia Flyers tonight 6-1 - showing no ill effects of the 2 week Olympics layoff. Kevin Weekes was sharp in goal - actually carrying the team in the first period of play - and Jaromir Jagr and his balky groin scored 2 goals and added an assist.

Important playoff cog Blair Betts returned to the ice and slotted back with his twin brother Jason (don't call me Dixon) Ward and scored a goal to boot. The energy players played with energy and the defense was superb in the last two periods.

All this spells good times and optomism that the commencement of this run wasn't simply a fluke.
