Maybe if they came ready to play (coaching problem) they'd beat them.
Torts deserves blame for the inability to change stuff during a game, but I never understand why it is the coaches job to get players "ready' for a game. These guys are professionals, if they need someone else to get them 'pumped up' the really need to have a look at themselves, especially the leadership group.

This is a point that is really overlooked IMO. Last season almost everything went right for the Rangers, just about everyone played out of their skins. Even with that, we only just finished ahead of a Pens team missing Crosby for a large chunk of the season and struggled to put anyone away in the playoffs.

This season the depth is gone and players have come back down to earth. the compete levels shown are disappointing, but overall the Rangers are about where they should be expected to be in the standings
