NHL Rangers at Columbus please Rangers do this one for me
I think that it’s weird that I mostly consider Wayne Gretzky a Ranger for some reason. Everybody knows he is the Jerry Rice of hockey no one will ever sniff his records ( lets do it Kane ) but I know he was an Oiler and a King. When I was just starting to get into hockey I really was specific team follower not much about the whole league. I have two sporting events when I was younger that really stick out to me. One is the earthquake during the 1989 between the Giants and the A’s and the 4 game sweep of the 1992 Lord Stanley’s Cup between the Penguins and the Hawks. We were on a yearly trip back to the home country of Pennsylvania when my uncle turned it on and I was hooked for Penguins hockey. I was young. Young kids always pick the winners, just like young kids were all Cowboys’ fans in the 90’s even though the whole team was filled with cock filled hooker feinds. One more thing that always sticks in my mind is when the Rangers won the cup in 1994 where they won it in 7. It was an awesome series against Vancouver but that’s not why I remember the series. It’s because of when they handed the cup to Messier and his stupid face.
If we were friends I’d make fun of him for that still to this day.
On to the game
The Rangers are riding pretty high right now winning 8 of their last 10 games and they actually hold the same record against Columbus in as many games. This one for me is a nice cross your fingers game. I think both teams are really good but Columbus right now is slumping a little dropping 5 of their last 8 games. They are holding onto the second rank in the division but just barely over Pitt. The money line was set pretty good on this one considering that Columbus hasn’t been too good of late. I’m going to be taking the Rangers +125. It’s going to be a great game.
