Rangers Part Deux: 5-2 W

I thought this was actually a pretty good game. The Penguins pulled away in the third period but for most of the time there were some nice offensive displays. Marian Gaborik looks to be feeling it just as much as Crosby lately, being all over the place and finding all sorts of ways to obtain the puck and put it in, and I believe he is the league’s leading scorer right now in points and goals. Crosby again delivered a great performance (2g, 1a) which was only overshadowed by Mike Rupp’s hat trick.

I just wanted to take a minute to commend Ray Shero on signing Rupp. When it happened over the summer everyone was scratching their heads because we already had plenty of fourth liners. Shero obviously had a good feeling about it because a player just doesn’t switch teams and eclipse his career high in goals in a season by accident. We’re not even halfway through the year and Rupp already has 8 goals, two more than his career high of 6. That’s a pickup that deserves mentioning, not that Shero hasn’t already had some good ones.

It seems like the Penguins are rounding back into form as guys continue to return from injury. I have a good feeling that at the latest Malkin will heat up when Crosby cools off.
