***IN THE SLOT*** OUR PRIMETIME PLAYERS OF THE NIGHT
DANIEL PAILLE-LW-BOSTON BRUINS
It really hurts win the other teams fourth line beats you, and that is what happened to the Rangers last night. Boston left wing Daniel Paille, who had 17 points in the regular season, scored the game winning goal on a bouncing, flopping puck that Henrik Lundqvist lost sight of with only about 3 minutes left and that was the game. Paille, also, had an assist on the Bruins first goal, so it was a big night for him. Paille is a grinder, and at 29 he is not going to get any better, but he has given the Bruins a 3-0 lead in the series, and the Rangers look beaten.
