The New York Rangers are playing some solid hockey against the Carolina Hurricanes and J.T. Miller is taking his game to a whole new level.

The Rangers are playing quick while exploiting Carolina’s lack of physical play. At the end of two periods the Rangers are out shooting the Canes 31-18.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: Chris.Wengert@elitesportsny.com
