There are two professional teams that call Madison Square Garden home. These two teams are completely on opposite sides of the spectrum right now. The Rangers are just rolling along while the Knicks are resembling a rowboat with only one oar rowing.

I could just go on and on about the Knicks problems. These problems were still there when the Knicks took on the Wizards on Friday. The ever powerful Wizards, who have a whopping zero wins, made the Knicks look pretty inept, even though the Knicks won. Enough said, we'll see how this plays out.

The team in the other locker, the New York Rangers, are pretty fun to watch. They are scoring, they are playing defense, they are hitting and their goaltenders are fabulous. They play with a plan and they play with emotion. They look like a mature team and when they are down, they don't panic.

Last night against the Panthers, the Rangers rested Lundqvist. Biron was in goal and he got the win in overtime. Biron is 8-2 on the season, not bad for a backup. Tonight with Lundqvist back in net, the Rangers beat the Penguins 3-1.

I am very glad to see that Marc Staal is back and plying like we know he can play. Tonight he took a huge hit and it didn't rattle him. He just came back and flattened a Penguin. He is definitely not gun-shy.  With tonight's win, the Rangers are 6 points ahead of the Flyers for first place. Keep it up and maybe some of your winning attitude will rub off on your roommates.

Did you see that Kris Jenkins told Mark Sanchez to grow a pair. He let loose on Sanchez and Jenkins even thinks that Sanchez shouldn't even be starting.  Wow, that's huge from an ex-teammmate.
