Rangers go for 3-1 lead in semi's against Devils

Tonight is Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Ranger fans like me are hoping beyond hope that the Blueshirts can finally take a commanding lead in a playoff series this year.  So far the Rangers have yet to hold a two-game advantage in this year's tourney.

Rangers' forward Brandon Prust won't be in the lineup tonight, serving a one-game suspension for a high hit in Saturday's game against the Devils' Anton Volchenkov.  The suspension has heated up the tension between these two longtime rivals, and a war of words between the coaches erupted earlier today.

Henrik Lundqvist

The Rangers bounced back on Saturday after a home-ice loss last Wednesday that evened the series at one game apiece, scoring three goals in the third period in an almost mirror image of Game 1 last Monday.  Henrik Lundqvist was spectacular in goal for the Blueshirts, proving once again that he is a force to be reckoned with in the NHL.

So let's hope the Rangers can take command in this one tonight and arrive within one game of their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance since their championship year of 1994.  I Believe!

Let's Go Rangers!
