Callahan with the Hat-Trick

Standard Spin: It's all looking like roses for the NY Rangers these days, the team is first in the East and 2nd overall.  Saturday they manhandled their Philly rivals 5-2.  Ryan Callahan had the hat-trick, with 2 goals on the powerplay; he now has 10 PPGs on the year, which is good for 4th in the NHL.  Equally impressive was Marian Gaborik who had a goal and 3 assists - factoring in on 80% of the Blue-shirts' offense. 

Other Game Notes: The combination of Giroux, Hartnell and Simmonds continued to click in the loss, with all 3 players recording a point - Simmonds with a goal and an assist. (2/12/12)
