Nope. Not at all. He was the best of the group last night by far. I'm one of his biggest critics but I have to admit he impressed me last night. Then again, Henrik made all of them look good last night.

Does anyone have the MSG+ highlights of the game? I want to see what Chico Resch had to say on the replays of the Ranger goals.

He has never had a better glove hand in his life! He stole that win last nite.

Credit Avery for sealing the win, eliminating any last min heroics by Kovy.

Gilroy played well last night, getting into the offensive flow more, and he made a great pass to Drury for his goal.
Henrik was spectacular, but I still think his greatest game ever played was against the Stars a few years back.

Rozsival has been playing absolutely dominating defensive hockey for the past 10 games or so. He's been really really strong, so much so that I'm not sure I want to trade him if he keeps this up...

Too bad the rest of the team can't hop on his boat. We have been TERRRRRRRIIIBBBLE defensively the past 5-10 games.

They are on nhl.com I guess, but I cant watch them whole, because it freezes half way through.

thanks for clarifying that for me since being only 10 rows up you must have seen Avery spear Kovalchuk and throw punches first. I guess that was missed on the three replays that I saw. All Avery did was talk, although that got him a six game suspension once and obviously these refs don't know what an instigator is after watching Peters square off while Prust still had his stick in his hand.

Most players, except obviously for the stars in the league, would get at least an additional 10 for continuing to punch the guy when he is on the ice AND punching a linesman in the process.

These games are simply awesome for players like MDZ and Gilroy. Playing against Parise and Kovalchuk and holding their own gives them valuable confidence. Even in games when the Rangers are getting destroyed it's awesome to see them both playing PK and logging big minutes.

This game was perfect in so many ways. I agree, Rozsival has been pretty lights out as of late. Keep it up buddy and you won't be hated. Now if Redden could take that sort of cue...

Here's the thing though. The guy has always clearly been capable of playing really well when he's on his game (i.e. the Buffalo series), but he never maintains it for any long stretch of time. If he plays well enough for them to trade him and maybe even get something of value back for him then great, but I don't see any excuse for not getting rid of his contract if it's at all possible to do so. Besides, if they move him they actually would have the cap space to nab Kovalchuk.

Would Kovalchuk even sign for a team that has Sean Avery on it?

I'm surprised to hear that coming from you, Inferno.
IMO this is EXACTLY when you trade him -- when he's recovered some of the credibility that landed him that contract, and right as teams are rearming for the playoff run.

His upside has always been quite high, the problem remains consistency. Don't let a 10-game stretch make you forget about the other 70.

Henrick mentioned that he had a conversation with Benny Allaire the day before the game. Thought that was interesting since he played a little bit further out in the crease and had such a dominating performance.

Hank needs space and confidence that he can play at the top of the crease where he can really dominate. Hope he keeps it up.

Should also mention that if this is true (that a conversation with the goalie coach helped him) it shows that the efforts of the coaching staff do have a positive effect from time to time.

You're mistaken like most other.
My thread was saying Lundqvist Sux Way Too Often. I never wanted to rid of the guy. The fact he played lights out against NJ still doesn't answer inconsistency question that undermines his elite goalie status.
I am still sure that CJ has something to do with Hank coming out of slump (Olympics is another factor).

I'm sure it does because he lost the 2 games right after CJ's 2 starts.

Why do you keep insisting on something as ridiculous as the backup goaltender having a material effect on the starting one?

Come on guys Hank is so overated and he is a prima donna, he is not even a top 15 goalie...his glove hand has to be the worst glove hand of all time for goaltenders, He is not a team player he just leaves the bench all the time after he gets pulled and goes into the locker room and goes on facebook with his cell and writes blogs about how he doesnt like torts

Actually its totally coachable. If he plays farther away from the goal line he cuts down angles.

If he has confidence in the D he can do this.

Wait, was that sarcasm?

You know, they were saying something about how Henrik has adjusted his equipment and mentioned the glove. I thought they said along the lines that he can now close it as opposed to being a firm open face blocking device.

This game was the first same I watched that saw him snag pucks like that. Several times during the game as well. Usually he has to cradle the puck like a lacrosse stick.
