Game #1 Review
After an interesting off season in the Big Apple which saw notable big-name players leave, such as Mario Lemeiux, Grant Fuhr, and Al MacInnis, many did not expect the Rangers to even win one game. After the first night, the Rangers are 1-0, mystifying the pundits. Jon Casey was on his game as he stopped 21 of 23 shots to gather his first win of the season. The player all Rangers fans have their eyes glued to is Nicklas Lidstrom. The highly touted rookie went plus 1 on the night, but didnít contribute to the box score. Fans can expect Lidstrom to start getting more ice game starting as soon as tonight. He will be paired with new Ranger, Lyle Odelein. If this tandem gels, they should play together for years to come.
