Holy crap. I'm seriously pissed about this game, very fricken angry. But some of you guys are ridiculous. Enough with the cliff jumping. Saying you're done with the Rangers and you want them to not make the playoffs? Come on, we're all fans here. We all get upset when they let us down, but you can't give up on it.

That being said, I was very angry with the performance. They played down to the Panthers' level tonight, they let the Panthers dictate the pace of play. Cally was a logo sniper tonight and also seemed to play pretty uninspired--not what I like to see from the captain.

Want to know how they played? They played like a team who KNEW they were playing the worst team in the league tonight. They can talk about treating all opponents equally all they want, but it was clearly a night where they underestimated their opponent. That led to an uninspired performance with extremely sloppy play.

Concerned with Nash and Cally tonight. Both didn't look good. Hank made two amazing saves in the 3rd but aside from that he looked off. I know we all want to defend him no matter what, but the fact that those goals were deflections does not make them unstoppable. 9/10 Hank stops both of those deflections. I think his performance had a lot to do with seeing such little action, it's very hard to get a rhythm going when you're seeing no shots.

That being said, the Rangers' fate is still in their own hands. Win 1 of last 2 games and we're in. I guess I'm the weird one here, but I'll be rooting for them to make the playoffs no matter how they get in.
