PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — MSG Television color analyst for the New York Rangers Joe Micheletti joined the Fan Morning Show to preview Thursday night’s game against the Penguins.
Micheletti says that there has been a myriad of different ways that the Rangers have won this season, giving them the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
He said that when the top guys aren’t scoring, guys like Mike Rupp have stepped up and carried the load. And, when nobody is scoring, their goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist has won them a few 1-0 or 2-1 games with his outstanding play.
The Penguins have lost four straight to the Rangers, and will look to turn things around. Something that Micheletti says will be a motivating factor, along with the fact that the ‘Pens’ want to keep their current three-game winning streak alive.
