Torts should probably

1) lay off the steroids for a while or what ever he's taking or not taking that make him a maniac

2) coach the Islanders - they rack dishapleen

MacD with Staal and Marty at alts. Could Hank be an alt? I know he can't wear the C but it would be a nice gesture!

Have we retained Carcillo? Glass is a good fighter but a liability defensively.  We need a big body like Boyle in the middle.  A guy that can block shots.  Another thing we lost in Boyle is his prowess in the face-off circle.

In the face off dot - if you're not cheating you're not trying. Rangers want to win em they just need to cheat harder. If the refs are not calling the violation then it's fair game on both sides.

Great Analysis here. I've been watching him struggle this post season and this series has been his worst.  He's been such a warrior for us for so long but his foot work, turnovers and lack of recovery speed hare just too dangerous against a team like LA.  I'm loving our D core and feel good moving forward next season.  Staal's game has suffered since his concussion and near eye loss but he has been solid.  


Offensively Richards has been worse than bad.  Awful turnovers, playing like he's afraid to take a hit to make  play - he coughs up the puck along the boards every time someone gets near him.  Richards remains on 1st unit of the PP and at the point vs an LA team that will kill you in transition - Nash on the PK and not the PP?  the list goes on. 


What this series is going to come down to is:


HANK THE TANK


What does Hank have left in the Tank? 


We can score - we've proven that in 3 of 4 games.  Can we play 60 minutes and not just the first 20 or 30?


One game, Friday - that's all tat matters.  not 2 or 3 games, ONE GAME!

LET'S GO RANGERS !! !!!

@JesseHauser  The thing is, Kreider can't fight with a hand that's just back from being broken.  If they try to goad him I hope he's smart enough not to drop the gloves.  He's proven that his emotions can get the better of him so I hope the team will rally to his side if it gets ugly.

@Rangers_54  He was about to plant his right leg down when it gets hit. He's forced to stay on his left and he looses his balance.  He goes hard to the net and he should have an exit plan but it's NOT intentional.

@SGrumet  He's just trying to rally his team and the fans.  If the situation was reversed and Hank got run we'd be going ballistic.  If they want payback I just hope they go after Kerider and not Hank.  I expect Car Bomb in the line up for Brass as a result

"Obstacles we see as fans"

3 months, 3 weeks ago on Conversation @ http://nyrangersblog.com/

We don't have to win three games in a row. We don't have to come back from a 3-1 deficit. These are just obstacles we see is fair. As players and as a team all they need to do is win one game. One. Not 3 or 9. ONE.

Can this Rangers team with the best goalie in the league and a number of seasoned veterans win one game against a team that's easily frustrated and has a goalie flops all over the ice soon as we pressure on him?

YES WE CAN! LET'S GO RANGERS

My wife flew me all the way from California to see this game.  I want my (her) fucking money back! 

If Nash isn't injured he's fired!  Same with Stepan and many other players who looked like mere pedestrians out there.


Where's the leadership coming into the 3rd period?  Where's even the sense of frustration and push back near the end of the game? WHERE IS THIS RANGERS TEAM? 


Is this just another typical Rangers season - we make the post season struggle to win the first round and then get dominated in the 2nd and go play golf? 


They've done it again.  I get excited and they never fail to disappoint.  


I fully expect a post season injury report to include: Hank (leg, hamstring shoulder)  Stepan (shoulder or hand), MacD (obvious shoulder) Nash (brain).

A little but late but I think we needed the Car Bomb in the line up last night to distract the Flyers from their game. They are so easily pulled into the shit and parade to the penalty box -it's what we needed last night.


I'm sure AV will keep it the same - we'll see.


We get last change - bench management will be key!

We need to test him early and continue to make him work.  If he's not 100% making him really work out will take him off the ice. I'm not saying we need to run the guy but making him face 50 shots with 20 quality chances would do it......wait is that possible?

Another thing the Flyers did effectively was set a trap in neutral ice and at their blue line. There was no easy entry for the Rangers. No stretch passes made it through and we need to find a better entry into their zone in game 3.

We need to tighten up Defensively no matter who we're playing.  The first period vs Canes and the entire game vs Sens are a testament to how important MacD is on our blueline.  


I'd love to see him back in the line up and we need him in the post season for sure. The concern is that there's actually more damage to the shoulder than the Rangers are disclosing.  He could have easily dislocated it without "major structural damage."  Playing hurt in the post season is a given,  I just hope he doesn't get targeted and end up with something considered major.

As compelling as the long contract and money may be, Cally would be going from the bright lights of Broadway and a shot at the post season to a last place team in a city that's 100 miles from nowhere.

My main issue with the long contract is his injury prone body. Cally's most affective when he's throwing himself off a cliff - all out 100% and thats's not sustainable. His body won't support his game and we're left with a guy who's out of the line up and a huge cap hit.

No way the Sharks give up big Joe Thorton. We don't have a player we'd want to trade to acquire him unless it included Staal or McD which I'm not really willing to part with. One player I'd love to have is Pavelski

Detroit is weak in front of their net and in the high slot.  We need to take advantage of this with simple middle drive and exploiting the seam on the 1/2 wall with players moving off the boards down low to the slot.  LGR!!!!!

It was a terrible read plain and simple.  He should have been playing between the dots and in a position to step to the middle instead of cheating to the outside hoping the pass would be off the boards. The fact that he cant catch the player also sux and he doesn't try to take him down  sigh...

It simply looked like a bad read by DZ.  He skated outside the dots and did not adjust or react quickly enough when his man cut to the center. He could not catch him and it cost us.  If the play was reviewed pre-game he should have been between the dots and ready to step up on their center.

Boyle needs some more skating lessons. The guy falls down every shift. And man are we better w/o DelZotto overplaying everyone and trying way too hard to prove himself. Wish he would focus simply on stay at home D. Let's hope we play well during this stretch!

I'm sure I'm not the only one who noticed how ineffective DelZotto was on the PP in Tampa. I thought AV realized DZ had no place on the PP and we were actually better w/o him on point prior to entering that game.

Dump and chase dump and chase dump and chase. Only worked for a few shifts in the second during the long change. We didn't adjust our offense. We'd dump and their D would already be deep in the zone. They trapped us in neutral ice and we never adjusted.

@Trade DelZotto+Girardi4E.Kane The Sharks are playing great hockey but they have never had a playoff gear.  They can win the presidents trophy every year and still  not win the cup because they think they can just keep playing the same level in the playoffs.   They need someone in the locker room that's been deep in the playoffs and knows how rare it is - someone to motivate them to the conference finals and beyond.    If not for Drew Remenda's awful color commentary I'd like them a lot more!
