Because you need to keep the PK'ers on their heels knowing that there are guys out there that can make plays. Makes them defensive.
Thats why our PP was better today.

I think MZA really did help. Richards looked far more patient and confident with the puck with that second target out there.

Richards
Hags
MZA

Defense still looks like trash, but at least we picked up the 2 points.

MZA was making great passes all night on the PP.

Guy can play offense at the NHL level, it's not a question. Put him on a third line with Arty and someone who's not Rupper.

In Torts philosophy it's all about grinders. He will send Zuca back.

I agree. Playing him over Scott is a no-brainer but aside from the puck movement on the OT PP, he didn't show that much. Again he should be playing, but I disagree that he was one of our 3 best players tonight.

And I laugh out freaking loud if you have Gaborik as a top 3 player of the game. The guy can only get a shot off if he's on a 4 on 3. What a sniper!

I was pretty sure that post said Gabby and then got edited to Richards. Unless eyes are playing tricks on me.

Richards best game as a Ranger, IMO. He created something every shift. Was dynamic. Exciting hockey. He skated with a swagger I haven't seen him skate with. Great game, and a huge reason we won the game.

Idk man. When I'm at games I think its pretty obvious from my seat in the 400's that there is no room to shoot in certain situations.

Richards
Hagelin
Gabby

Didnt see Haggs in the poll so i voted MZA.
THIS is what a PP looks like. Two great, quick thinking passers in Richards and MZA leads to goals. 3 tonight, how long since we last managed that?

On the PP and 4 on 4 MZA makes every one on the ice better as he is poised with the puck and moves it quickly to the open man and tape to tape .
5 on 5 his size probably a problem at times but to have him and use him the way Tampa uses Bergeron IMO IS a no brainer . Move him around the lineup , pick your spots with him and I think he is productive .
BR Had a dominant game and that's in him but IMO playing him and a less grinding more puck possession game with some skill players works

I actually think Zuke will stick and be a PP specialists like he was 2nite.

Honestly Torts will run 3 main lines in the playoffs. So having Zuke on the 4th line where he can be pushed up or just play on the PP is a good idea.

Only thing that scares me is Torts still played Mitchell on the PP......jeebus

Guy has good offensive instincts, but he's atrocious at the defensive side of the puck. He's also far too small to play in a bottom 6 role and he isn't good enough to play in the top 6.

My superstitious habits took over in the 3rd period tonight...so, the reason we won, was because of ME:
