The Good:
-Dan Girardi.
-It's over.

The Bad:
- In a brutal game, Hank looked particularly bad. Can't pin a loss like this on him, but he needs to make AT LEAST 2 of those saves.
-Where the **** do these refs keep coming from? There are better officials in Peewee House League. My kids can sue these clowns for my inevitable early heart attack.

The Redden:
-How do you put forth an effort like this in the home opener? Unreal.

I know that the team played terrible, but again the refs did their part in this loss. Atleast one of those 2 goals that were waved off should have been in. The penalties again have been extremely lopsided. They killed our momentum towards the end with the ******** call on Dubinsky. As much as it is the player's fault, the refs lended a helping hand.

Something needs to be done to wake this team up. Regardless of the bad calls, they stopped playing in the second period and only woke up with less then 5 minutes left after MDZ's goal. When you can not even put together 40 minutes of hockey, let alone 60 minutes, you are going to lose games

Three Stars:

1) First Period
2) Gaborik
3) Callahan?

How the **** can the team never enter the offensive zone clean? Every time we try to enter the zone there are defenders taking away space, but when they enter the zone we give them all the time and space in the world.

Once again, this team hardly resembles that hard working squad from last year....complete 180
seriously, Dubi,Cally,AA and Stepan look to be a fraction of what they were last season.
Richards has underwhelmed imo.
Gabby's the only one who looks like he actually cares.
Why can't this team ever be in sync!!! last season everyone was firing on all cylinders except for our superstar..now it's like 09-10, where Gabs is carrying the offense and everyone is just chillen back

Alright then, off with Sullivan's head.

Actually, I don't think it would make any difference. WTF is with the complete lack of anything resembling chemistry?
Please, nobody tell me I should relax etc. You don't relax after seeing something like this.

Only voted for Gaborik. Only player who showed up tonight. Pitiful team performance. 14 shots through the last 40 minutes?

The last 40 minutes looked a lot like what the Rangers have done the past seven games. We STILL, through 8 GAMES, have not put in a full 60 minutes. I find that concerning.

Gaborik, game in and game out, is the only player with spunk, who skates, generates chances, etc. I feel bad for him, he is legitimately giving it his all, and he doesn't have the support around him to do anything with it.

For every great save Lundqvist made (two breakaway attempts by Kessel stick out), he let up a soft goal. The first three goals were all stoppable. I'll give him a pass, obviously, for (a) his performance thus far this season and (b) the big saves he made to keep the Rangers in the game (team couldn't respond or get a lift from any other save). He looked dejected, his head wasn't in the game, and I can't blame him. Must be frustrating to have your team continually not show up to play.

Callahan and Dubinsky continue to be their two worst forwards. Dubinsky in particular. He has been, bar none, the worst player this year. Send a message Tortorella, and bench him (as you have others) to show that his kind of play is not acceptable. I can't be the only one sick of seeing Callahan and Dubinsky on the ice ~ 20 minutes a night... And, of course, after they signed their contracts too...

Richards, earning his $12 million this year, has been incredibly underwhelming. Not generating chances, not gelling well with Gaborik, not gelling with anyone, not carrying it through the neutral zone, and not being the offensive catalyst our PP needed. Huge disappointment 8 games in. Is there anyone in the NHL getting paid more than this guy this year?

And then there is Tortorella, again, the answer was to "shake up" the lines, not change strategy, get the guys motivated, have them show up for at least ONE of the two final periods. Doing a terrible job.

Team is 3-3-2, should be worse, one of the worst teams in the NHL from what I've been seeing.

One good thing today... Sauer looked decent. That's about it.

Agreed.

Stepan looks to be on his way to having that dreaded sophomore slump.

Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov are strange. Only thing I can think of is that they got paid....

Again, the Rangers definitely didn't get the fortuitous calls, but they didn't do anything to HELP THEMSELVES. The referees were not responsible for 14 shots, with limited scoring chances, over two periods.

I entirely agree on the second bold point.

Sick and tired of this team, we try to make every play look like a highlight. Its not like its one game its every game we get out shot every single god dam game. It sickening, really. We need a chance in coaching, and figure out something with Dubinsky and AA if not package them in a deal for a goal scorer. Whats gone wrong with them?

Haha yeah so was his goal.

Something I can't say about Anisimov.

The Pack Line is playing like a 3rd line this season.

Oh dear...so much for the home opener.

Time to unleash Zuccarello and let him play on the 1st or 2nd line.
And the lack of a solid experienced defenseman continues to hurt the team.

I cannot believe the effort this team continues to put forth night after night.

No offensive creativity. No effort in on the forecheck.

I am literally at a loss for words right now.

The Good: The NBA Labor Agreement looks to be almost over.

That particular turnover led to the 3rd goal which totally put the game out of reach.

I have a feeling we are going to see some roster moves just to shake things up... Maybe MZA, maybe Avery. All I know is Torts is going to pull out all stops if he thinks his job is in jeopardy. You do not that that much leeway in New York and I think he realizes that.

Oh also, MDZ better step it up because he got tool'd tonight.

The Good: This game is over.

The Bad: Our lack of creativity in the offensive zone.

The Redden: Our transition game.

In fairness, he came up with huge saves to keep his team in the game throughout the second period, and the team didn't respond. You would have thought two breakaway saves on the NHL's leading scorer would have given a lift to the team. Nope.

I'm not defending the goals he let up, but he stole several goals from Toronto through the first two periods and gave his team a chance. They didn't show up in the last 40 minutes.

After, I think he merely became dejected. And that is on him.
