It's beyond amazing, every game, I just think how good Tavares really is. It's unbelievable, how he easily goes through teams without breaking a sweat. And honestly, besides the dumb penalties and players like Pandolfo who can't hit a puck more than two feet on a PK, I feel like it was quite an effort tonight just in how they'd respond after yesterday's loss. Players like A-Mac sacrificing their whole body to block a shot, Hamonic always working hard. It's players like those who this franchise needs to build around (obviously along with JT, etc...) to hopefully turn this team around.
I really Don't get why everyone gets so upset about the Potvin Chants. The fact that Ranger fans still chant his name in any form—still 20 years since he retired—is a tribute to perhaps the best Defenseman ever to play the game since Booby Orr. They know it and we know it. Every time they mention his name in MSG, it's a tribut to a NY Islander that led the Islanders to 4 straight cups. Ranger fans know it was an era that is too good to forget.
