Game Observations 1) Nice comeback in the third period after a bad second. 2) They passed up some good shots early in the game which they haven't been doing. 3) Nice to have three goalies that can play. Domingue was solid.
Very nice victory against a solid Minnesota team. Domingue was fantastic in goal for the Blueshirts. Wheeler finally removed his picture from the side of the milk carton and nets his first goal as a Ranger. Laffy and Trocheck with 3-point games, Breadman with a goal and an assist. We outplayed Minnesota in the first and third periods and spotted them the 2nd period. Good win.

I thought for a little while in the 2nd period, this game was going to be a repeat of Saturday. Glad to see they took back over in the 3rd and win the game. Also, glad to see another team besides the Rangers lose to a 3rd string goalie. Keep up the good play Laffy! He's getting rewarded for it too.
As of right now, the Rangers are tied for the second best record in the NHL. Full marks to Peter Laviolette for implementing the right system for the Rangers and credit to the players for buying into it.
