For some people around here goaltenders are Stanley Cup winners or chokers with no middle ground.

By comparison, how are the Rangers top scorers this season doing in the playoffs:

Derek Stepan: 3 points in 10 games
Rick Nash: 4 points in 10 games
Brad Richards: 1 point in 10 games
Right -- so far in his playoff career Lundqvist is looking like he is going to have Cujo like support from his team.

The Rangers just don't score!

I get the feeling that Tortorella isn't going to be there an awful lot longer.
