I really don't want to be negative but in the last three games although we are 2-1, NYR has not been the better team. Needless to say we played like garbage tonight. The game in Pittsburgh was won by Lundqvist and last Sat shootout win vs Wash we were definetly outplayed especially in the first two periods. Seems to me NYR goaltending has to be outstanding to win lately. Agree or disagree? and what the hell is going on!

Agree, but i also dont think this team is perfect yet.

I think it's hard working and guys are coming a long, but I think it is important to remember that this is still a young team and this is still the first year of a rebuild. It's a learning and growing process and there are going to be times when this team is going to play like that.

The record is nice, but I do believe this team has overachieved a bit to this point. This team has won and that's great, but it's also going to lose as well. Younger players are going to need work, and that's going to take time. The real test for this team is when it hits a funk and things don't bounce their way. How they respond to that will be very important because sooner or later, this team will also have a losing streak as well.

I agree also, and expectations are now higher for the Rangers to continue to do better. The last few games the effort has been low, but the team always gave you the impression that they could come back and win in most games. Last night you almost felt that they gave up. One positive was we were able to see Holt play some minutes, and it was good for him to get some NHL game time.

They've definitely played poorly, but is it just coincidence that the poor play comes against WSH and PIT, team's who consistently have our number, year after year?
