1. Martin St. Louis – A statement game appears to be in store.

2. Henrik Lundqvist – Ben Bishop has been lights out for Tampa, which means Lundqvist will be looking forward to this goalie matchup.

3. Anthony Duclair – He’s back in tonight but what does he have to do to stay in there?

 

 

EYE ON THE ENEMY

Ryan Callahan will return to the Garden 11/17 (NHL)

1. Ryan Callahan – I think the reception will be warm at first, then turn to boos when the game starts.

2. Ben Bishop – The early Vezina favorite in my estimation.

3. Steven Stamkos – If I need to explain, you live under a rock.

 

 

 

FULLTILT FORECAST

The forecast is now at 8-9 – not good.

Everything says the Rangers should lose this game. That and Ben Bishop seems to own the Blueshirts.

Logic be damned, I’m going with the Rangers tonight.
