This team-if you want to call them that, is too weird for me to get emotionally involved anymore.
I don't think they like each other. Which explains why they don't stick up for each other. The Montreal game at home when they did was nothing more then an aberration.
This group of players just don't gel and every night they prove it to us.

I've never seen a team not ever take on their coach/manager personality. Too many times this year Tortorella seems like he's the only one with fire and that cares. This has not translated to the players.
You would have thought we had a robot as HC.

You nailed it, this is why I would rather watch kids play than over priced weenies who do jack **** and go through the motions night in and night out, players that need to earn a spot rather than just expecting it...............Lgr

I've noticed this too.

I've said it a million times I'll say it again, Drury is not a good captain for Tortorella.

True. Why? Managing the temperament of a team is an art -- one Tortorella has not mastered, imo.

Is Kotalik even going to play?

edit: Nm he is. But If I see him walk the blue line with the puck, I'm going to crap myself.

I see us coming out stale in the first, and it doesn't improve until over halfway through the game. 1-0 Carolina, Hank lets one in early.

To be honest I'm not that excited, nor am I expecting much from this team. We're playing the worst team in the league so expect a lot of complacency, and a "we got this in the bag" attitude. 3-1 Ranger loss.

Hey! Not so fast!!! The Oilers are in 30th. We are in 29th. See, you don't have a chance!

Couldn't agree more, I really have no personal connection left with this current group of players and only watch out of curiosity.

This absolutely is a MUST WIN game.

Look at the schedule

We face 7 tough teams after tonight, then 1 easy team (bolts)

Then we face ottawa after the break, followed by another 4 tough games..

We're probably going to lose the majority of our next 13 games

This reminds me of the Ottawa game after the Devils game. I'll go Rangers lose 2-1 with a goal from Sean Avery.

Relative to other teams...

I know, we get beat by easy teams all the time.

Not every player on this team doesn't care. Watch and cheer for Hank, Gabby, Dubi, Avery, Callahan, and whoever else you think cares.

Does anyone know of a Mac compatible stream? I can only find STs and Vexcast.

The Rangers have usually managed to win these "must win" games so far this reason (remember the "lose and Sather is gone" Islanders game?)
The kind of game where it's the only thing standing between them and total rock bottom.
Considering how flat out bad Carolina is, urgency alone should be enough to win this one for the Rangers.
Not that urgency is ever a given with this team, however....
