09:33 AM ET 06.15 | The Rangers have zoned in on Alain Vigneault as their next coach, a well-placed league source told The Post last night. Vigneault, who brought the Canucks within one victory of the Stanley Cup in 2011, is believed to have met with Garden owner Jim Dolan yesterday, even as Mark Messier confirmed his candidacy to succeed John Tortorella behind the Blueshirts' bench. The Blueshirts had not yet presented an offer to Vigneault, who impressed president/general manager Glen Sather in their meeting on Tuesday at La Quinta, Calif., as The Post reported. But a contract proposal is expected to be forthcoming, what with Vigneault last night withdrawing his candidacy to coach the Stars, who had been keenly interested in hiring him.

Apparently Paul MacLean does know Jack.

I don't know why but I think he has a breakout game tonight....

He'll be a good choice for the Rags.

I can tell you this much: I won't miss Three Fingers. Hopefully, he disappears into the WC now that the Red Wings are in the East. I won't have to endure his facial expressions as often.

The Bruins only came to steal one so far from out of it. But it hasn't been so mouthy lately since they lost :)

Yeah. our top cheerleader is silent. Being a Bruin fan also, I like the backlit limelight. Bombastic buffoons are embarrassing.
