Game 1: Rangers/Lightning - Prague
Rangers win 2-1. Ok, maybe I was wrong about not putting Drury on the wing. That Gomez/Drury/Naslund line looked scary good. Naslund looked about 7 years younger, and Gomez was doing Gomez things all game. Naslund at one point in the third had a move where heput everyone's jock on Mars before he clanked it off the pipe.Hank played solid, but the story of the game was Mike Smith, goalie for the Lightning. Is he a member of the FBI Witness protection program? Mike Smith, c'mon, I don't buy this name. Regardless of that, he's actually a very very solid goalie, made some brilliant moves. Good win by the Rangers, taking a 2-1 lead in their season opener.
