Donald Brashear vs. Shawn Thornton

Well, I didn't get to see the game today as I had a couple of bball games to score in Park Slope. On what otherwise was a good day for the Blueshirts, who prevailed 3-1 over the Bruins to reach 50 points and continue an upswing, here we see $1.4 million waste Donald "Huggy Bear" Brashear get dusted by a couple of Shawn Thornton rights.

Well, at least they got the first three with a three-point game from Brandon Dubinsky. Erik Christensen added a goal and helper as he continues to flourish at his fourth stop. Not bad for bargain basement. Most encouraging is that Marian Gaborik isn't scoring but the Rangers are finding ways to win. Others are stepping up. And Henrik Lundqvist was strong again stopping an early penalty shot en route to 29 saves- improving to 8-1-2 over his last 11.

Lots to like headed into Tuesday's Battle of Hudson at MSG. Does our team have a shot? We'll get a better idea of where they are.
