Funny to find ourselves extolling the defensive play of Poti. That goal 68 seconds in was a killer in the Rangers first playoff home game in 8 years. I know the puck was bouncing but a defenseman has got to have the sense of whether there's an enemy forward cruising around behind him. Maybe if he had made the play we wouldn't be crucifying him right now but there have been a number of mental errors from him practically every game. In the regular season a player sits in this situation just to let him know and get a grasp on what he should be doing. We're out of games to play around with and Ozo should sit the next one but I don't think I'm going to be calling for Renney's head if he decides to play him.
