halak is not starting

Should be a good game. Hopefully the rangers can show that they can contend with the leauges best, and maybe even beat them too. If halak is not starting, the rangers have the ability to win this by a good amount.

John Gianonne is the worst color guy in the history of color.

LI Joe said...

he's not doing color he's doing play by play

Paul said...

are we done with this damn Boogard experiment? How does he get as much time as grachev and stepan?

LI Joe said...

paul - he signed 4 yrs so lots more fun to come

The last ten minutes, especially the last 2, seemed like the Rangers could care less if they won. The forecheck was non-existant.

High stick my ass!

Ryan said...

pretty terrible they cant produce on offense especially when biron gives up just 1 goal tonight... the inconsistency of this team is pretty frustrating

Chris said...

Two reasons we lost that game...

1: Boogaard
2: Bill McCreary

Ryan Taussig said...

Almost forgot to type this too:

Possession my ass!

Time to try 4 forwards and 1 offensive Dman on the PP. Second consecutive game with a 5 minute major PP and Rangers did nothing with either opportunity. No sustained pressure whatsoever. Couldn't even keep the puck in the offensive zone.

Rangers need more shot attempts. They're looking for perfect pass, perfect shot, perfect lane opening. Not going to happen. This is the NHL. Pretty basic, get the puck towards the net and chances are some will go in.

the last game the rangers had a decent sized lead so they were willing to just let 5 minutes run off the clock
