POTG: Henrik Lundqvist, with Erik Christensen and Derek Stepan close behind.

The Good: Basically everything.

The Bad: Fedotenko getting hurt again.

The Redden: Having to hear Benanati and Laughlin go on and on and on and on about Derek Stepan's hit on Mike Green.

Boy I'll tell ya though, when you're getting goals out of Eminger, you know it's your night.

Im a little surprised seeing someone calling him snakebitten. He is getting calmer on the PP and making great passes. Good to see him grow into the pace of the game. Points are good, but setting others up for points is just as good. Zucc!
Snakebit does not mean he isn't playing well, or not making things happen, in fact it's the opposite of that. It means he just can't finish on his chances.

Rarely is he not making something happen.

Why? Who else is going to take his spot?

We only have 6 DMen right now.

Girardi, McDonagh, Sauer, Del Zotto, Eminger and Gilroy... the latter 3 of which will get full playing time until Staal is back.

I would say his game was very much the oposite of that, he played well, made good passes, and were on the ice for 3 goals. Yes, he did have a some shots, but Zucca was always a playmaker first, scorer second.

I was stuck watching the Comcast feed, and those two could not stop talking about Sauer.

Still, EC is the obvious choice, but Henrik played the kind of game I have been waiting for about a month. The key to the game was the first stop on Ovechkin. Then he made a few more. His rebound control was excellent.

Rangers grab a lead, and then leave the rest up to Henrik. That's how it should always be.

For the life of me, I have no idea why we own the Caps, especially when you consider they have the same team that destroyed all 7 games in 2009.

Who needs Gaborik? Trade the bum (JK)

You would think that if there was ever a postgame conference where Brooks and Torts would be able to get along it would be this one.

Seemed to me like he started getting a lot more ice time as the game got out of hand. I don't remember seeing him much in the 1st period. I could be wrong though.

Stepan says he was just battling Green for puck but knows he might have gotten him high. "It's not like I was trying to make a dirty hit."

Had a good feeling about tonight. Might be the first time all month I've had a good feeling! But Christensen is the POTG in my opinion. With Stepan and Henke close ties for 2nd. Just an overall great team effort tonight.

I'm not going to argue semantics.

I agree, he played a good game, and I'll leave it at that.

Zuke struggles to put the puck in the net on golden chances as of late. It's annoying, but he still makes plenty of decent plays. I like him at the point on the PP.

He's the best PP point man we've had for a long time. I like him there as well.

Well, again, that is his game. He even says himself that he is more of a server than a scoring type of player. I see that some people say he needs to score more, but he isnt and never was the scorer, he was the server. Would i like him to score more? Hell yes, but if he makes other people score i dont really care as a goal is still a goal no matter who does. What I think he can give this team (as time goes by and he gets his shoulders down and relaxes a little more), is a prime passer that will make his team mates better by exellent passing.

He's probably the most creative player we have on the roster. I like his vision as well. He's a damn nice little player. And the goals will come.
