"A Garden of Victory! "

Rangers win forth straight while winning first this month at home.

The Rangers are playing exciting hockey again and after winning their forth straight they were able to get their first win on home ice this month.

I don't know if the Rangers were feeling differently about themselves after the home ice 2-0 shut out loss to the Islanders five games ago, but since then they've been finding a way to win hockey games. Weather it's Lundqvist coming up big between the pipes as he did on the Island following the 2-0 loss game and the following game in Philly as he was a monster in the third or could it be this secondary scoring we've been getting just in time for the holiday season.

Over the past four games the Rangers have put up 15 goals while only giving up 5. Yes, Henrik has been great allowing only one in three of those games but Dury has put up points as so did Prospal and Callahan. With these guys contributing to the offense this Ranger team could make some noise in the Atlantic.

In last night's game the Rangers fell into a 1-0 hole at the 4:09 mark but this lead would only last 2 minutes and 13 seconds as Dury would convert to tie the game at 6:22.

Rangers would move forward from their and connect on their next goal on the power play. V. Prospal first of the night at 4:55 of the second for a 2-1 edge.

The blue shirts would take a 2-1 lead into the third and wasted no time to take a two goal advantage as V. Prospal would do it again only :23 into the final session. Prospals emotions showed scoring as it was the first time he did so in 14 games.

Mr. automatic Mr. leading goals scored in the NHL would stamp this game off with a victory when the Panthers went on the power play and Dury would pressure the puck and was pulled down that lead to the ref raising his arm for an upcoming power play for the Rangers but no need as Gaborik received the push up pass and was able to slide it through Vokoun's legs for a 4-1 lead and wave off the penalty to the Panthers while scoring his first short handed goal of the season.

The eight place NY Rangers put in a complete game at the Garden last night and even in a couple of the team's break downs the King was there to defend for them. An all out team effort supported this win and In a month of ups and downs it's good to see the ups at the end of the month and the downs behind us. The two day NHL Christmas break is a upon us and the Rangers gave their faithful an early gift from their play of late.

Next up is the NY Islanders on Saturday night 12/26 at the Garden, the team that might of awoken a team that was looking to be headed no where fast.
