Bad game for Lundqvist, no doubt about that. But even more than goalscoring, the problem for this team continues to be missed assignments in the defensive zone....on the rush, running around while the other team cycles, you name it and its a problem. This teams defensive awareness is every bit as terrible as the 98-04 teams.
The guy had a rare off night, but Conklin wasn't far behind him, I thought he looked terrible, how can you not bail your goalie out........not even once...............it just makes zero sense. This team without henrik would be an even bigger disaster and you got Nicky Know-it-all in the stands booing Henrik? Being shot sounds about right to me.......this whole organization needs this off season to come real bad if you know what im sayin
You can tell the frustration is getting to him. Can't blame the guy at all. That thread on the main board summed it up; He deserves to be on a better team.
It's disheartening to watch this cluster **** on the ice. I can't even imagine being the guy who has to watch all 60 minutes from the crease.
Last night I was able to make it out to the game and I've never seen Henrik so upset with himself. He slammed his stick on the ice and the post a few times after his first mistake which again, I'm not sure I've ever seen from him. He also was heading over to the bench more than he normally does during TV timeouts and when he'd go back in net he'd slam his stick again.
He definitely let the first soft goal effect his play later. At one point he dropped an easy catch and later than that he let up an incredibly soft goal.
I'd disagree with the deserves to be on a better team notion. It's not a right to win a championship, the guy is making amazing money and that's the only thing a great player "deserves".
the fans that were heckling him last night deserve to be shot.
The fans are almost never fair. Redden got booed when they announced his assist and he even got booed when they announced his goal. I'm no fan of Redden but that's not right.
Me and my friend started yelling Redden you suck after any time something went wrong for the Rangers and Redden wasn't on the ice. A few guy around us appreciated it and a few others thought we were serious and agreed with it
