I honestly would have expected more of this team. I mean you can always run into a hot team/goalie but Rask made what, 2 good saves? Overall it looked a lot like NYR 2012 playoff hockey - just not that good.

The Good: Lundqvist, McD, Del Zotto keeping firing from the blueline on our PP - not that he'd ever hit the net, but it's nice to know somebody cares. Pyatt was decent. That Nash guy has a little skill as well. The PK.
The Bad: Staal was very inconsistent, bad turnover to Seguin. Bickel, but ya know, he's Bickel. I don't think the timing of the fights was too good. The refs were bad, but I'm not gonna use that as a excuse. The call on Boyle was borderline ridiculous, however.
The Redden: Y U no forecheck? The PP. Gaborik, Kreider, Hagelin. Lucic mouthing off to the refs because of a 2 minute penalty after hitting Hagelin from behind into the boars.

The Outlook: Can a team with Nash, Richards and Gaborik be that bad offensively over a longer period of time? The answer is no. They'll turn things around. Better start doing that soon, season ain't that long and home ice would be nice.
