thanks! Girardi has been great for this team at times, no one is denying that. He's made horrible decisions in his own zone throughout the playoffs as well.

I wrote this thread in anger, and should have retitled: "Cost us the Game". The Ranger forwards are largely responsible for that, but nevertheless Girardi's decision right there was simply unthinkable for an NHL-level hockey player. It was so devoid basic hockey sense it's unfathomable! It was as if the MSG janitor was on the ice during that play.
