The Rangers take on the San Jose Sharks in a Sunday matinée in the 1st and only meeting between these clubs this season.
The Sharks have been the NHL’s road warriors, with a record of 17-5-3 away from the HP Pavilion. Seriously, their arena is named after a computer. Meanwhile, the Rangers have been utterly hopeless against the Western Conference this season, posting a 0-7-2 record at this point. That’s 9 games, 9 losses.
So, I guess that means the Rangers are 29-17-5 against the Eastern conference? That’s pretty good. I’m not sure what that means, but I think it means something.
Henrik Lundqvist will start — so says Sam Weinman on the Rangers Report
On a side note, I really like the Sharks organization because their owner, Kevin Compton, is a benefactor of the Duke Hockey program and a real class act. He hosted the team in his owners box at a Sharks game a few years ago, and I must say that the arena, although named after a computer, is actually very nice. But, while there, I was viciously attacked by S.J. Sharkie, and I want vengeance. (See picture). For my sake, I hope the Rangers come out with the same intensity they showed against the Sabres.
