@Betweentheworlds The Rangers still controlled the game which is a great sign. I think they will be fine on the road. Hasn't been an issue for them this season.

@Rangers35 Richards just jumped the boards to early. Hank didn't need to stop either.

Looking at the shot differential, I actually feel pretty confident about this team. If they continue putting pucks on net like that, things will even out and goals will come. Hank wasn't great, but neither was the rest of the team. We are still the best road team in the league so we do know how to play on the road. I'm not worried yet.

I don't think Kreider will be the same this offseason if he does get to play. After breaking a hand, you get hesitant to shoot. We saw that happen to Zucc for a few weeks when he came back. He definitely won't have his wicked wrister which is one of his most useful attributes.

@Say my Name Berube forgot that Torts ain't the coach this year. Him and Holmgren must have gotten the memo late that the Rangers have a different coach lol.

@Say my Name I believe that was initially coined by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V who presided over the only period of actual imperial expansion of the Holy Roman Empire in the mid 1500s which was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire. It was corrupt, German, and a loose conglomerate of kingdoms and principalities. He conquered Spain and established the Hapsburg dynasty of monarchs who would head the Austrian (later the Austro-Hungarian) Empire until its collapse during WWI. He was simultaneously King Charles I of Spain and Lord Charles II of the Netherlands. During his reign, the Spanish conquistadores invaded South and Central America and wiped out the Aztecs and Incas. Sorry for the history spew-out. This happens to me sometimes.

@PharmerBern Fast hasn't been bad at all. He's generated speed and created chances. Also he protects the puck well.

@GiveGartneraCup @JoeyKocur Last time Emery played the Rangers I think we scored 4 goals on him. The current Ray Emery is not the 07-09 Emery who beat us each time we played Ottawa. He's gotten sluggish with age and really just serves as a locker room presence at this point.
I hope that during the Sens next game, Chris Neil is looking for someone to injure and inadvertently trips and falls jugular-first into someone's extended leg, cleanly cutting his neck "accidentally" on their recently sharpened skate blade. He's like Matt Cooke, only he never ever gets disciplined for doing anything e.g. the Boyle incident in the playoffs, the Boychuk and Kelly cheap shots, the kicked in "good goal", and now this. I was so glad that time when Del Zaster hit him back that DZ became a hero for me until he started sucking. Its as if the NHL is rewarding this a**hole for playing dirty by giving him free goals and cash. WTF!

@BrendyJohnson Way to jump the gun too early. MSL gets chance after chance but can't bury it and some of that has to be attributed to bad luck.

@Say my Name @DanielDHizzyHizgilov @McPhee37 Two wins away. Yeah I get it, I'm just really p.o'ed that we were the ones who ended up shorthanded after Staal got headhunted and sucker punched while defenseless on the ice. Instead of us getting a pp and having more drive to score a tying goal and get a point, we end up shorthanded and lose.
@BobDunne @Say my Name @dsclaw88 @nasoov @McPhee37 @mando24179 @ObviouslyTwoPointsAreGreat @BulldogLine Meanwhile, it lost us the chance of tying the game late and potentially clinching.
@Say my Name @DanielDHizzyHizgilov @McPhee37 I totally agree with you. This game though was the wrong time to do it, and Ottawa gambled on us retaliating and got lucky.
@McPhee37 Hilarious that while you are calling for fighting, fighting handicapped the Rangers at the worst possible moment. The best retaliation is a goal and a win, not a black eye and a penalty on yourself.
It does warrant a suspension not for the type of hit or the result, but for the intent and the premise behind it. There was absolutely no reason to hit McD high there. Kassian already was applying pressure on McD and Burrows only needed to go after the puck. He could've even tried a low hit, but no, he went up with intent to injure. That is the type of stuff that drives casual fans and Americans in general away from this sport. People who aren't fans will see a play like this and instantly stereotype hockey by this. Not suspending Burrows for this sends a bad message to the players and sends out the wrong image to potential fans.

Diaz looked like what Del Zotto was supposed to be. Quick, crisp passes and shots that could actually hit the net (lol). I like the new #4 from what I've seen so far. Why did MTL and VAN give up on this guy?

@JMK8363 What you want Kreids to do is what Pou was doing on that line when they were hot. AV shouldn't have split them up.
Great job Nash. He shouldn't be fighting every night but the emotion and physical play was great and that should continue. As long as he doesn't get injured, I'm totally fine watching him play like that.
