No, I'm not going to talk about 1994 or the Messier signing. But history has a way of making hate run deep. Canucks fans hate the Rangers, and for good reason. It makes these rare regular season meetings special and fun.
-Since December of 2005, the Canucks have only played the Rangers 4 times, winning all 4 of them! 4-1, 6-3, 3-0, and 3-2 scores going back in time. The math says we have outscored them 16-6. Isn't that facking lovely?
-The Canucks are 4-1 in their last 5 at Madison Square Garden.
-The Canucks have won 5 straight road games.
-The Rangers have won 3 of their last 4 games and are 3-2 in their last 5 at home.
Much more after the jump..
-Raffi Torres will play against the Rangers. He missed a practice because he was sick but no matter.
-The Canucks can pull ahead of the Avalanche by 14 points tonight. 14 POINTS
-What the Rozsival trade means for the Rangers' cap (Blueshirt Banter)
-John Tortorella doesn't believe in measuring sticks. Rangers focused for Canucks challenge. (Rangers Home Site)
-Tanner Glass honed his skills by fighting bears! Nice work, Pass It To Bulis!

God damn, this PP goal by Linden in that same game was a sick display of passing:
Go Canucks! Bury these bastards!
