From what I understand, he had a leg injury last season that hampered his game even after he came back from it. So, his stock fell hard. Looks solid, and could be the steal.

Saw the replay of the Kreider goal numerous times, to me, it looks like more than a tip in. His stick was lifted, but it looks like a shot attempt. Beautiful play..........

Nah, he face planted into the boards, really hard I might add, towards the end of the game. Tried o watch it on the re-run of the game, but did not see it again. He went for a check, and face first into the boards he went. Did not look pretty.
Yeah, and how much of the team is the same as last year? No team in the playoffs right now has had as much tunover in players as the Rangers have. Look where we are now. Some teams added key players, but we swapped out several key players on this team, and we are gutting out wins. I love how everyone knows how Torts is but have never stepped foot in the locker room, let alone day in, day out for a season. So ourPP sucks. Our 5 v5 is very good.

Yep. Puck was going into open net. Stopped by Richards.... isn't bad enough he is not scoring?

What I want to know is, where was our answer to the hit on Clowe by Chimera? Then he takes a run at Stralman, no answer? Then he runs Moore and Asham, no answer? This is playoff hockey, and we have no team toughness. Chimera was the game changer, intimidation. Same thing Ottawa did last season against us. Same thing Ottawa did against Montreal, and same thing the Caps just did to us. Not one person stepped up to Chimera. Not one.Then we play intimidated. Like Medvjed below, game or no game, make him answer ......

Along with all the comments here(ie. if Nash can start scoring), what about J. Moore. He is growing before our eyes. Same with Brassard. About Nash, it is not hurting us, because Ovi is doing crap also. Team confidence and momentum has a huge impact. I disagree with a few posters that said the Rangers did not play well the first two periods. I guess I was watching a different game? Now, let's talk about puck luck. If we had more, we would easily have had 3 more goals. Cally's shot through the crease and the corner bar (so close) , and the one Stepan shot that Holtby just caught with his inside left leg. If we can keep the confidence and momentum going we will be ok. Remember the first two games could have gone either way, no matter how we played. LGR!, the roller coaster continues........ Oh yeah, I forgot, Boyle sucks, Asham sucks, and fireTorts......

I was never a big fan of Zucc, although I saw he had great vision, he did not put it all together. Whatever he has done, he has put it all together. He really has a fire inside of him. I was at the Ranger / Panther game the other day, and he was the only Ranger who came to play. It seemed like he was getting triple shifted. Pucks are starting to go his way and in the net also. He is really battling along the boards and in the corners. The way he is playing, his lack of size makes no difference. MUST sign. I agree with everything else. If we can get secondary scoring, we can win it, especially with Hank. We must show up though.

@Betweentheworlds @ivanricov @tygalpin @GraigGiuliani@Betweentheworlds @ivanricov @tygalpin @GraigGiuliani We have a bunch of players who will be fighting for a spot the next few years. I dont think we will miss the picks as much as you think. This is coming from someone who at first did not like the picks for Clowe, but after thinking about it, we have excess players the next few years.

Speaking of Boo!!! " Christoval "Boo" Nieves of the Michigan Wolverines was named the Gongshow Rookie of the Month for February.
Nieves outscored every other freshman in the country during February and is Michigan's leading scorer. The Ranger's 2012 2nd round pick had points in 5 of the 6 games that Michigan played in February. "

@Herman_NYRBlog @Beckfan5 Funny, as Boyle has about the same amount of hits as Cally. Boyle is 7th in the NHL in the hit department, followed by Cally. Just saying.

@DieHardBlue How many teams had as much of a roster turnover as us? JT Miller made the 11th player to make his debut with the Rangers this season.

Nash wilbe big tonight. He will score.
10 months, 1 week ago on Biron Starts, Rest of Line-up Remains Same
IDK but seeing Rupp on he third line gives me a stomach ache.
Could Torts be Ghost Al Rafidain? Yes, the have to develop chemistry on th ice, and that takes time. Not one line remains the same since last year. It may not matter in a pick-up game, but at the NHL level, it does. Team systems take time to learn, and obviously, they have not had much practice time. Basically, all four forward lines have been dismantled and rebuilt. They will find their stride, it will be in time, no worries.

Errrrrr, I thought we were boycotting the first game? Kev, weren't you supposed to cancel my subscription to this thing?
Tension breaker. Now off to work I go. (I am in Fla.)....... Funny, last season, someone at work put the parental lock,on the NHL channel, on the tv in the break room at work. Could not get it unlocked, I tried.(Direct tv and work for big agency). Flipping through the channels, I saw we get MSG network, hah. Anybody coming near that tv tonight is getting seriously F'd up! LGR!!! Welcome back all and as always, thanks Kevin, for keeping us well informed through all this. Keep up the great work.

looks like the players made a decent move here, yet the owners do not want to counter? These are negotiations. Give and take. This just sucks.

You may have better luck asking the oil companies to empathize with the daily driver. It is a lockout though, not a strike.
