Agreed. Dale and Kasper did not look good. Horrible miscommunication leading to a Devils goal. However the replay showed that the Devils player was originally picked up by a Rangers forward. Who was that forward and then why did he let the Dev player go? That is what lead to Purinton being saddled w/ 2 Devils.
Y'all know my opinion of the Ambiguos Russian Defensless Duo. However the way they played last night is not by usual rant against them. Despite Malacough's goal, I thought that they were atrocious. And I don't want to hear Dale bashing until Bobo's giveaway that led to Larionov's goal is addressed.
I neve thought that DeVries would anchor out defense that much. Tyutin came back down to Earth in a big way last night.
