NEWS & NOTES





QUOTES TO NOTE

It's just an awful feeling out there right now. We are just not getting it done, and I don't have an explanation for it.
We're just so far from where we need to be.
- Henrik Lundqvist


Our puck management is not very good. We're just giving pucks away, not putting the puck down by their hash marks, making them go down and get it.
We are making life too easy for the other teams.
- Dan Girardi


I thought tonight, our guys tried, but we’re not playing very well right now.
We’re not making the right plays. It was the same outcome but two different levels of competing in my opinion.
- Alain Vigneault

Marty for Vezina.

Kahuna Nanu 10-11-2013 11:40 PM

Easy loss, RIP in pieces, Rangers.

Loffen 10-11-2013 11:46 PM

Just take a look at STL's lineup. Talk about balance. Four highly capable lines.

I'm expecting a slaughter unless the guys somehow manage to play hockey again.

NYRFAN218 10-11-2013 11:47 PM

Don't lose by 10.

Riverdale 10-11-2013 11:48 PM

Try not to lose too badly

ajdj10 10-11-2013 11:59 PM

Anyone know in advance whether I should watch the game or not?

You should know by now it won't be worth it. These are the Rangers we're talking about, not a team with resilience or mental fortitude.

On the other hand, if you like the Blues, check it out.

Giacomin 10-12-2013 12:31 AM

A nice win is coming!

Megustaelhockey 10-12-2013 12:38 AM

Being a fan means watching the team you support religiously when they're playing their absolute worst.

Radek27 10-12-2013 12:53 AM

Lets see if this team can remember how to play hockey tomorrow night.

LGR!

DoTheBlue 10-12-2013 01:08 AM

Blues are not named after an animal so this is a win.

What Door 10-12-2013 01:26 AM

STL GF 14 GA 6.

NYR GF 6 GA 20. If you take out the LAK game, it looks even worse.

There's really not much else to say...... but you know I will anyway.

This team is turning the puck over like I've never seen before. And it's not just one or two culprits, it's almost everyone.

Call me an apologist, but I really think we can almost write off this whole first month of the season, and here's why:
-The team has been on almost constant travel since the beginning of training camp
-Nash (shoulder/hamstring/groin concussion), Hagelin (IR), Stepan (rusty/not in game shape) and Callahan (rusty)
-Hank is traditionally a slow starter
-AV's new system

Now, that's not necessarily an excuse for just how awful the team is playing, but anyone can see that this team is mentally and physically gassed. In retrospect, I think it was an awful idea to do the Banff/Western Canada Training Camp/Preseason, given the fact that the team was already going to be on the road for the first month of the season due to MSG Renovations. I know Sather has ties over there and wanted to do something for the flood victims, but the team could have raised money from the NYC Metro Area.

These next couple games, all I want to see is improvement. I still fully expect the team to look tired, I just want them to look a little better mentally each game. If we make it out of this road trip 3-6 or better, I would count us very lucky.....






With that being said, I fully expect the Rangers to somehow come out and crush the blues 5-1. Nash's latest concussion awakened latent telepathic abilities. From the press box, he uses his powers to create a psionic barrier to seal Marty's five hole, then proceeds to slowly drain the life force of the entire blues bench to heal himself for a third period comeback, in which he scores all 5 goals.

Killem Dafoe 10-12-2013 01:55 AM

"alright boys, time to pad your stats."

JohnC 10-12-2013 02:09 AM

Green Blob normally says this but...

Must win?

lol, good one :D

Personally, regardless of end result (a win would of course be VERY welcome...) i hope that the Rangers has a good game, get on top of things, etc.. no more "running around like headless chickens in the defensive zone" :)

Are you religious?
Is anyone here religious?
If you are I think you should say a few prayers.
We might need it.

Well spoken. Hope this is the truth. Several guys have to stand up and step up their game for Nash.

Im not, no. Which in this instance might be unfortunate, hehe

wolfgaze 10-12-2013 03:19 AM

better stock up on the alcohol for this one fellas!

5 4 Fighting 10-12-2013 04:17 AM

I called the 6-0 blowout, calling this one a 4-2 loss.

TimtheDJ84* 10-12-2013 04:33 AM

Actually, St.Louis has 14 goals for and only 4 against.

Lerb 10-12-2013 05:44 AM

It's hard to keep faith but hey, this is the way we've had it for years.

Gotta keep our heads up and keep playing those 60 minutes until we get things in order.

LGR :yo:
