keep throwing the body

skate with your head up

be aware of who you are on the ice against

Stepan and Anisimov actually look like legit home grown offensive threats. It has been a while since the Rangers can claim that.

i was at the game last night ... i could not believe how great sauer played... the guy is a stud deffensively.. tortorella cannot take him out of the lineup until he plays himself off the team... the team that was put out last night was 21 million under the cap (no drury, gaborik and lundqvist)... I liked what I saw last night from the entire team (especially sauer)

p.s. avery is the best

Great all around effort by the Rangers. Defense was tight, blocking shots, stepping up at the blueline. Good forecheck and decent amount of offensive chances. Biron looked solid should've been a shutout, I am pretty sure the Leaf's goal was scored off a hand pass.

ok so are they finally going to keep Sauer in the freaking lineup full time or what

Leave Eminger on the freaking bench and just play Gilroy until McD or Valentenko are ready or until they find a suitable lefty Dman

I have to say the doom and gloom with injuries blow but they seem to have 3 set lines going forward. Hang on until Gabby is ready

Dubinsky, Anisimov, Callahan.........looking good , looking good
Avery, Stepan, Fedotenko............gotta like the chemistry
Boogaard, Boyle, Prust............Prust did a good job last night but he is best served here

Now the 1st line. We all know we need a #1 C but reality is they have to fill the spot with whoever until they get to Free Agency or the deadline.......Richards or Parise top choices of course

So Frolov and Gabby C by either Christensen or Drury..............White is a filler and should be sent down to save space at some point. Its going to happen just depends on when

I don't know about 60-70 for Artem, but the kid made the one step I thought he'd have to take to become a real player in this league; his skating.

Its almost like watching a different player this year. I think if, at age 22 he can step up and get 20 goals 50 points it would be great. Won't make re-signing him cheap, though.

That entire line of Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan need to be given long term deals this offseason.

I just rewatched the game from the TSN feed and the announcers were absolutely raving about how impressive the Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan line was, shift after shift, and also about how far Anisimov and Del Zotto had progressed individually.

It's great to see these guys get some well-deserved recognition from non-Rangers fans, and it reassures me that we're all not just lying to ourselves--they really have come a long way.

Then again he's super young. At that age your body is kinda made of rubber.
Stepan, without a doubt, needs to work on his skating in the off-season. If he can improve in that area, he'll be racking up assists like a mad-man. When he had that semi-breakaway that led to Fedotenko's goal...the defenders caught up to him fairly easy. If Stepan had a quicker first step, he should have been able to turn that into a full breakaway for a prime SOG. However,his effort on that play has to be applauded.

Toronto came in flat and we took advantage of it peppering them with SOGs. The final difference in shots came from blocked ones. Girardi, MDZ and Stall blocked like 15 shots total or so. Regardless, I doubt Lundqvist could hold up the way Biron did.

He's been doing it all season and did so at the end of last year as well.

Right. Because Biron is clearly the better goalie. Every time you open your mouth about Lundqvist it's hard to take you seriously.

While i agree some added foot speed would help, on that play, he had to reach behind him to get the puck in control. His body was off balance at that moment to really push off going forward.

I agree. I think he needed to make one step, not just to become a real player, but to step up while Gaborik's injuried. Him and Dubi are the guys, along with Cally.

How 'bout that homegrown talent clicking. I'm not saying they're superstars or they're extremely dominant, I'm just saying when was the last time we seen three players that came through our system play together and just be an extreme bright spot for the team. I love it.

This.

I find it ridiculous that you even compare Biron to Lunqvist let alone saying that Lundqvist cant hold up as well as biron?

Are you insane?....the team actually played fairly well in front of him last night....thats a lot more than can be said for the previous games when henrik was in net

even fans who hate us admit he is one of the top 5 goalies in the league

Lindqvist is a cold fish. I wanna zap him.
Johnson is a better goalie.

Games like this is why it is so maddening to be a NYR fan.

The team was obviously as upset and disheartened as most of us were after the first four games and collectively were determined to have a strong game.

They played with intensity, commitment, and passion; just as they have so many times over the years after a stretch of poorly played games.

The game was a template of how they need to play, but the question remains whether this was a one time thing, the beginning of a short stretch of passionate play before reverting to form, or the beginning of a long term change in attitude. We all know what it is like to play against teams that work hard every night no matter what the circumstances. The Rangers have not been such a team and, having been a NYR fan for decades, remain scepticle that they will become such a team until shown otherwise.

Also, over the last few years the team has often seemed to play better without Henrik in net; knowing that he isn't there to cover up their mistakes seems to make them play harder. Will they show the same battle level with Henrik in net?

In baseball they say that momentum is only as good as the next game's starting pitcher. For the Rangers I would say momentum is only as good as the next game's intensity level. Which Ranger team will we see against the Bruins and the Devs?

Boy did the officials screw things up last night. I hate the new NHL where if there's stick play or any type of contact, it's a penalty on a defensive player.

He used to be top 5. He is in 3rd dozen at this time. Biron may not be better goalie, but he is hot while Hank is cold. Following your logic if team plays well we will get a W every time. It is false. Team did play well, yet with Hank is net we would get a point at best.

One game is hot? How can you compare the two goalies?
