Versus prepares for Monday night doubleheader

Monday, 04.04.2011 / 12:16 AM / Schedule


The New York Rangers picked up two big points in Philadelphia on Sunday on national television. They'll have a chance to do it again on home ice Monday night.

The Rangers, who moved two points ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes for the final playoff spot in the East on Sunday, will face the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S.

Later in the evening, the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks will battle at HP Pavilion. That match begins at 10 p.m. ET and can be also be seen on Versus in the U.S. and NHL Network in Canada. San Jose trails Detroit by one point for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, while L.A. is tied with Phoenix for fourth place at 96 points apiece.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
