Ugh, those were just horrific defensive breakdowns.

First Goal: Richards takes a bad penalty and Staal tries to make a fancy outlet pass rather than just clearing the puck when he has the chance.

Second Goal: Bickel makes a terrible play going out of position and getting neither the man nor the puck. I don't understand why Bickel's on the roster. Eminger should be playing over him.

Third Goal: Just bad luck with the puck nicking off Girardi's skate.

Fourth Goal: A sloppy change hangs Lundqvist out to dry.

Fifth Goal: That was an uncharacteristically terrible play by McDonagh. He chased the puck up the right wing boards when he should've been covering the front of the net.

I know Pittsburgh has a lot of firepower, but the Rangers really did it to themselves with their sloppy defensive game. I just hope Kreider doesn't have a concussion.
