Lundquist

Wow. What a great kid this guy is. After reading through last nights game thread I thought I'd post this. How can ANY Ranger fan knock the game he had. Even with the OT loss I thought he should have been first star. Hey, if you don't want him, we'll take him.

Who's knocking him? The first goal was a fluke, second goal was a great deflection and the it took an absolutely perfect shot to beat him for the 3rd goal.

Lundqvist is a BEAST!

Come on guys, lets try and really concentrate on the name spelling...here's a phrase to help with HL's name:

"Lundqvist - there's only one U "

Seriously!

I was too depressed to read the thread last night, but were there people harshing on Henke?!?!?!?!?! He was fantastic. Two deflections (including one by his own player) and an absolutley perfect water-bottle-popper were the only three to get by him. I'll say it again - he was fantastic. I'm just as upset as everyone else, but that was one of those games where the team outplayed the other guys and the bounces just went wrong for the Rangers. It happens.

I very much suspect that we're about to see the Blueshirts go on a 5-7 game win streak (including this weekend vs the Flyers).

The Rangers didn't really outplay them. The Flyers physically dominated us, that's why the Brashear line played so well.

Agreed that Brashear's line was better on most of its shifts than the line across from them, but I thought the Rangers' lines won most shifts against the other Flyers lines.

I mean, if you're a Flyer fan, don't you feel like you stole that one?

Considering having a 2-0 lead with 10 minutes left to play, yes the Rangers handed the game to them but I believe the Rangers didn't outplay like many are saying. There were constant turnovers in the nuetral zone for the Rangers and when the puck got deep in the Rangers zone, there were Flyer bodies flying all over looking to lay a hit...keeping the puck pinned deep.

The Flyers also out shot the Rangers 40 - 30.

Yes we have Henrik to thank for the game being 1-0 going into the third. Philly dominated in pretty much every other aspect of the game.

That being said, I'd start Weekes against Pitt.

There were ppl in the thread last night that were saying lundqvist completely choked in the third period and lost it for us. Dont worry though, there were more than enough ppl willing and able to shut those guys up

I think that would be the smart thing to do, give henrik some much deserved rest.

I agree, give Lundqvist a breather.

Anyone posting that Lundqvist had anything to do with the loss is probably just a 12 year old Islander fan posing with a ranger screen name. No body in this league saves any of those shots unless they are blessed with pure luck. I don't think any of the 5 goals in the game were savable actually. Get a life, Henrik bashers.

the first pitkanen goal was def a fluke...but a goal is a goal...the Richards goal was beautiful...and Jani's GW was absolutely a blast...the rangers had them most of the game...but in the last 5 minutes they got lazy...especially after it went to 2-1. They sat back trying to defend the lead...you can rarely do that anymore. The Flyers got away with a win on that game. LundQvist is a wall and was the only reason the flyers didnt tear us apart in the final minutes...and true Weekes needs a game here...

well i think we also got a couple big breaks from the refs last night too. once a quick whistle waived off a goal when lundqvist never had control of the puck. later, a slapshot from the blue line that found it's way into the net was also waived off due to a "phantom" offsides call. they were never able to show a replay that confirmed anyone was offsides imo.

Not at all.

The Flyers were better in all aspects of the game, albeit not by large margins.

Flyers had more shots, more chances, more hits, more blocked shots, less giveaways and won more face-offs.

All in all a well played game by both teams. The refs missed a few things, but I liked the way they let both teams play a physical game. Both teams had some big hits.

Yes, Lunqvist has earned the starting job but what about weekes. As much as we would all like, you cant just leave him to rot.

Lundqvist earned his breather. Weekes has already used up his breather which he had earned earlier in the season. Plus Henrik is a rookie and Weekes is a well traveled Veteran.

not sure if anyone else saw this...from John Buccigross'
recent article where he lists his 2005-06 NHL All-Star teams.

"G - Henrik Lundqvist: If he played on the Senators, he'd have 30 wins and seven shutouts."

If I were a Flyers fan, I wouldn't have been happy with how they played the first half of the game. The second period they started to turn around, and the third and OT they played very well indeed. The first period they were totally passive, almost timid. Esche had to come up big to keep from going further down. Shows that the Rangers need much more of a killer instinct. Too many players think 'pass' rather than 'score'.

I think it has to do with people having very high expectations on lundqvist. He is an amazing goaltender, but only human.

I think it's more a reference to the short time span in which the Rangers lost it. The tone of your message indicates to me that you weren't the least bit surprised because the Flyers were the better team. But, you had to be wiping at a bit of sweat from your brow over this one. We're talking 5 and a half periods of scoreless hockey for the Flyers during a stretch of games that nearly brought a comfortable Atlantic division lead down to a point. 10 minutes to go Rangers fans are thinking shut out and Flyer fans had to be a bit concerned about the state of their team. 10 minutes later Pitkanen has his hands in the air celebrating a 3-2 OT win. Now, I'm sure there's a greater sense of being robbed amongst Rangers fans than there is the sense of having stolen something amongst Flyers fans. But there had to be some nail biting and concern going into that game and particularly late in 3rd still down 2-0.

I think you're absolutely right. Unfortunately for us Rangers fans, this is exactly the sort of win that turns around a losing streak. The next game for the Flyers will be telling.
