Rangers Hope To Continue Their Winning Ways

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

“I can’t explain how as a professional athlete everything rolls off your shoulders and goes in the right direction when you’re winning,” Brad Richards said yesterday after the Rangers worked in preparation for tonight’s match at the Coliseum against the Islanders. “Let me tell you, it’s not about playing great hockey for 58 minutes, getting 60 shots and losing 2-1.

“It’s about making important plays at important times, about taking care of the details that decide games. We may not look great for 60 minutes, we may have breakdowns, but we’ve been making the important plays, and we’ve been winning.

“And the more we win, the more confidence that breeds. We’re not a cocky group and we’re not getting ahead of ourselves, but we are [9-3-3], and that means something.”

The Rangers go for their seventh straight victory tonight against the 4-7-3 Islanders, who have won just once in 10 games (1-6-3) since defeating the Blueshirts at the Coliseum on Oct. 15, but are trying as hard as they can to get a reasonably high draft choice in exchange for Evgeni Nabokov.
