Why are some people getting all righteous about the fact that the kicked goal wasn't the game winner and doesn't matter? As I see it, that goal happened with 3 minutes left in the game. Should it not count, the Rangers have a better chance of tying the game and getting to OT. Obviously you don't want to blame the loss entirely on the refs, but that particular call was bogus and it still would've been bogus if the score was 5-0 at the time. However, it was only 1-0 and the game was still within reach. Complaining about the officiating does not mean people are blaming the entirety of the loss on the refs. How could anyone not complain about the phantom call on Boyle and the even worse call on Kreider.

Overall, aside from not finishing, this game wasn't as discouraging as people are making it out to be. The fact of the matter is that our two best goal scorers aren't playing. We carried the play 5v5 and had a lot of chances and Budaj played VERY well. Just because he's a back up doesn't mean he's a sieve and should always be scored on at will.

I really liked Kreider's game. He was the best forward on the ice tonight. Richards wasn't as effective as he's been, which is a bit forgivable because he's being keyed on as the most dangerous player. It's too bad Kreider's shot in the opening minute didn't get a lucky bounce and go in off the cross bar, if it had, this would've been a much different game.

They just need to take the positives from this game and go onto the Island tomorrow and try and finally finish.
