My point was not to slag the game the Habs played, but to defend the statement that Tortorella made: both teams were unimpressive. Put it this way, if that Marc Staal shot that got blocked and lead to the 3 on none game winning goal had been placed an inch to the right and had ended up pin balling off two players and past Price, would Habs fans be praising what a fine game the Rangers played? No, you'd be in this thread lamenting that you lost a sloppy game on a bad bounce. That is my point, both teams were bad, the Rangers were worse, and it is not arrogant to say that.

Anyway, I will end my input there. I did not come to puck a fight, just to get the Hab fan reaction to the game. I responded when I saw an opinion that I disagreed with, that's all.
Disagreed. Both teams were really impressive in their defensive play. The offense on both sides had trouble making a dent and imposing themselves.
