JETS at RANGERS
MSG, 970 AM

Vic Hadfield Night presented by Budweiser
Legendary Fan Fest: 1:30-3:30 p.m. (33rd St. btw 7th & 8th Ave.)
Doors open 3:30 p.m.
Banner-raising ceremony begins 4:30 p.m.

The legends are in the house.

The Rangers return home on Sunday for a special evening at Madison Square Garden, a celebration of Blueshirts history that culminates in Vic Hadfield's No. 11 taking its place beneath that famous ceiling at the Seventh Avenue end.

"It's going to be exciting for me. When he was in his heyday was when I really started following hockey," said David Quinn, who grew up in Rhode Island rooting for the Bruins. "The New York-Boston rivalry runs deep in all sports. I was incredibly impressed with him at a young age, he had an incredible career.

"It's an honor that is greatly deserved, and some might think long overdue."

Quinn plans to have his players take in at least part of the pregame ceremony, and then of course, they have business to attend to. The Blueshirts will be looking to bounce back from an 0-2 Canada trip, and will do so against the Winnipeg Jets at the rink where the Rangers have been at their best so far this season.

The Rangers have lost only once in nine games at the Garden, going all the way back to Oct. 23, and have outscored opponents 30-12 in their eight victories.

But they have struggled from the drop of the puck over their last two games, allowing the first three goals in Thursday's game in Ottawa and the first four on Saturday night in Montreal. Once they fell behind the Canadiens by 4-0, the Rangers showed some pushback and made a game of it, but still came home with their fourth straight road loss.

"We're pressing, especially when you get down the way we did and as quickly as we did. Guys press," Quinn said.

Henrik Lundqvist will return to the Ranger nets looking to win his seventh straight at the Garden, where he hasn't lost a start since Oct. 21. Alexandar Georgiev spelled him on Saturday and made 36 saves.

Lundqvist will face no small challenge in the 15-8-2 Jets, who kicked off their three-game NYC-area trip with a 4-3 overtime win in Newark on Saturday. Winnipeg stands fifth in the League, second in the Western Conference, helped by a power play that is connecting at a 29.3 percent pace, second in the NHL.

Patrik Laine has plenty to do with that: The Finnish winger leads the NHL with 21 goals, including his five-goal game on Nov. 24 in St. Louis. Blake Wheeler's 29 assists rank third in the NHL.

As for Hadfield, his 262 goals as a Ranger rank fifth in the franchise's history. He will become the 10th Ranger to have his number raised to the rafters; his linemate Rod Gilbert was first, on Oct. 14, 1979, and his other linemate Jean Ratelle was most recent, on Feb. 25, 2018.

Given Hadfield's notorious history of playing pranks on his teammates - "he was really, really bad," Gilbert said - the GAG Line right wing couldn't help but exact a little revenge on Hadfield when they gathered for Jean Ratelle Night. Gilbert was one of the few who knew that Hadfield was next in line for the honor; Hadfield wasn't in on that secret. So at dinner the night before, Gilbert was merciless.

"The night before, we were all together, all the guys, and I said, 'You know Vic, if you had been a little bit nicer, and learned a few more French words, Jean and I could have brought you up there with us. But you don't really deserve it,'" Gilbert said. "He was mad. I got him good."

The following night, Gilbert made the announcement to the Garden that Vic Hadfield Night was on the calendar. "He was white as a sheet," Gilbert said.

His night is now here, and all the legends will be there, including Rod and Jean and Emile the Cat, reuniting the GAG Line once more, on the ice on Sunday, in the rafters forever.

"It's the greatest honor. And I'm so happy for Vic, because No. 1, he deserves it," Gilbert said. "The three of us made a big impact together. It's quite an honor for the three of us. It's like it's unimaginable."

NUMBERS GAME

Laine is the League leader in goals with 21, and tied for 419th in assists with three. Altogether, his 24 points tie him for 46th in NHL scoring. On Nov. 24 became the 45th player in NHL history to score five goals in a game.

The Jets and the Avalanche are the only teams with two players in the League's top 10 in goals, with 21 from Laine and 15 from Mark Scheifele, who scored twice, including the game-winner in OT, on Saturday against New Jersey.

On this date in 1973, the GAG Line combined for nine points, with Hadfield and Gilbert each scoring twice, in a 6-4 Garden win over the Maple Leafs

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Jimmy Vesey - bumped up to play alongside Mika Zibanejad and Jesper Fast - had a goal, assist and three shots on goal in 17:49 on Saturday in Montreal.

The Rangers have been shorthanded only nine times over the last six games - a trend they'd like to continue, as Laine is also the League leader in power-play goals with 10.

Congratulations Mr. Hadfield. Enjoy your day. See what the Rangers have for intestinal fortitude, another in a season of show me games. They need to show some group heart and mental toughness.

Rangers could use a young Vic Hadfield in the lineup these days.

Vic was hurt in ‘74 and Jean was hurt in ‘72, the two best shots at getting the Cup for those guys. I don’t hold it against those three (19, 11, and 7) for not winning the Cup. They gave everything they had and were always gracious with the fans, especially Gilbert. Congrats Vic.

The team looks better with TD and Belesky in the lineup. Scrums like that, where there’s no backing down, gives your team momentum.

Can’t understand Rangers fans who don’t want a gritty 4th line like this one and would rather have “scorers” instead. If you lack scoring it’s because your 1st and 2nd lines suck, not because you lack scoring on the 4th line.
