Remember that horrible show on MTV, NEXT? Well, that's what I'll be saying tonight when the Blueshirts square off against their Nassau County rivals, the Islanders.
Instead of seeing how long I can fake-enjoy myself with a terrible date (the Rangers-Islanders game) tonight, I'd rather push the channel and go to something that will actually be enjoyable.
Not only will you see two teams that are actually relevant in the NHL, other than tanking it out for draft positions, but you will see a rivalry that has fire to it.
Watching the seven-game series last season between the Caps and Pens was one of the best series I have watched in quite some time.
What else could you ask for in a late-season game than what the Penguins and Capitals have to offer tonight?
Going into tonight's game, the Caps hold a 2-0 advantage on the season series with the Penguins.
I don't have to hype these two teams up to any NHL fan. It's simple: Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. Or, you can watch a Rangers-Islanders game in the 3D! So cool! NEXT!
Or, if you don't feel like watching good hockey because the Rangers have turned you off completely...the Mets are playing the Astros in spring training.
