Two top 5 offenses in Boston (during their hottest streak of the season) and Detroit (albeit at a cold streak) each scored 1 goal against Columbus this season. No I wasn't happy with it going into OT and this team still needs a scorer or two, but let's keep things in perspective.

i understand that a wins a win, but it should have been an easy win for us. To let a team like Columbus tie it at 2 and take it to overtime is absurd. What's even more absurd, is that we owned them in 99.9 percent of the game. It just urkes me that we didn't win a little easier.

Didn't catch the game, but how did Hagelin look? He got 19 mins at even strength, but is still not entrusted on special teams.

The reason I'm asking is beside my impression that he makes every line he plays on "go", I've looked at his underlying stats which are pretty freaking good.

He only plays ES, where he is leading the team by far in points per minute (scoring at the same rate as Jagr and D. Sedin), his +/- is far superior to his linemates' and to top it off he's been very clutch. 8/9 of his goals have been when the score is tied or only a goal separates the teams, 8/9 goals have been in the 2nd or 3rd period with 5 of them being in the 3rd.

One of his more impressive games, in my opinion. Looked a lot better in the offense zone with possession than he has previously - was strong on the puck, had good body position on defenders more often than not, and made intelligent short passes.

His play on the rush/chasing down pucks was as impressive as it normally is - it was the improvement in his play down low that really impressed me. I've felt it's been pretty much the only weakness in his game up until now, and although it might just be Columbus' awful team defense - it looked much improved tonight.

I realize (even though I'm an engineering student) that stats aren't necessarily a good reflection of actual play, but I've been amazed when I've looked at the team metrics these last few days. They basically all show that Hagelin has been our best ES forward, and it's almost not even close.

Columbus beat the Blues last week. Boston lost to Winnipeg and Minnesota. There are no easy games.

Maybe if Sather can find anyone who can win a face-off,the Rangers wouldn't have been in OT.

Dubinsky isn't untradeable but I'm not in a hurry to get rid of him. Right now, playing on the 3rd line with Boyle and Prust--it's not likely he's going to score a lot of goals.

The Rangers do continue to win and he continues to contribute in other ways than scoring goals--so it's not really as if his game has fallen off the cliff. He's always been a good playoff player and you need guys who can grind in the playoffs. He is a Torts type of player.

Boyle was 61% on FO's last night.

Not all of us cried about the bounce against NJD...it happens both ways over the course of 82 games.

Thought the team showed good character they could have just played for the skills competition after the late tying goal but didn't.

Sorry but lucky teams don't lead the conference, and lets not forget Boston and Pitt lost yesterday so they extended their lead.

What a friggin' joke, why have instant replay if you have an incompetent moron reviewing it, who can't see with his own two eyes the puck crossed the goal line with 00.2 left and rifled the back of the net with 00.1. That almost cost us one point. Also watched Nash most of the night, he's 7.9 million waste of time, I'll pass, and thank God the Flamers took Pavel Kubina, otherwise we might have, the Flamers are collecting 6' 4" d-men that suck!

I love how on the OT winner Del Zotto circled around the back of the net knowing exactly what play he wanted to make happen -- tapped his stick on the ice immediately, got the pass, and then executed.

That's a poised 21-year-old.

Funny thing watching the game was I never thought they were in the game, but we just couldn't generate quality scoring chances, Mason was very beatable, if MDZ's goal counted, which it should have, we would have won easily...

MDZ is filthy, one of his best games yet. Looking very Leetch-esque out there.

Maybe I'm just crazy for having faith in Dubinsky to keep building on his .68 PPG in the playoffs.
Nobody "deserves" anything...a bunch of guys were traded in 94 and got us the cup who were important members of that team...Gartner was a very good Ranger.

I'm not advocating trading Dubi or Staal, but if the "RIGHT" deal comes along that sets this team up for a Cup run and doesn't hamstring the Cap in a year or two then you take a long hard look.

I think you have to take into account that Carl is still a rookie from the NCAA used to playing like 50 games a year. I have no doubt that he'll eventually be a fantastic PKer for us, but no need to burn him out in his first pro season.

1. Del Zotto was an absolute stud tonight.
2. Stepan was fantastic on the forecheck and had the puck a whole heck of a lot, not sure what people are complaining about with him.
3. Hagelin, his usual self, love this kid.

I thought the Rangers dominated the game, and if not for some over-passing and bad bounces (or ticks of the clock) the game wouldn't have been in question.

Don't worry, the NHL more and made up for that lucky bounce we had by stealing our goal at the end of the period.
