Me neither. It almost feels like I'm going to skip this one, there's a limit to the number of crap fests your mental stability can handle for one month.

The sky is falling.

If there's any one thing this team has in spades it's resiliency. They don't stay down for long. That kind of hunger gets you places, and that kind of hunger hasn't been there the past few seasons.

Show some faith in the team, we were right in that game save a few uncharacteristic turnovers that proved costly.

Lesgo Rangers.

so tempting to dish out $225 for a pair to watch this game...never watch my rangers play but man hockey games are so expensive...if hank was playing i will be tempted to go but right now ill watch on my big screen...expecting a good bounce back game from the blueshirts...CUT DOWN ON THOSE STUPID TURNOVERS resulting in odd man rushes...dump chase forecheck...simple but was working before

Accidentally kicked a goal in the net on the first goal. Over handled a puck that caused a turnover which ended up in our net. I can't give him too much blame for the first goal, but the turnover that lead to the second was completely inexcusable.

He was benched the rest of the game.

Turned his skate in while coming in from in front of the net, assuming he had already crossed the goal line, to block a centering pass, and the puck deflected off his skate and went right by Hank.

Then later in the game he over stick-handles in to the offensive zone and has his pocket picked as he is attempting to dish one to DZ, resulting odd-man rush leads to a Sabres goal.

Biron. He better.

The schedule isnt forgiving travel-wise. Biron already beat the Leafs in Toronto this year.

Henrik hasnt been overworked this season, but you want him to be in peak shape and condition for those last four games gainst Boston, Philly, Pitt and Washington.

I think Biron should start this game and the Montreal game. Henrik sucks against the Habs.

That way, Henrik can play back to back games on the road at Minny and Winnipeg, but have three days off before that, and three days off heading into the Boston game.

It's clear as day to me. If Torts does something different, I'd like to know why.

Plus, you want Biron to have a little PT before the playoffs, in case of an injury to Henrik.

The Rangers have a day off between each of the last 4 games. Henrik should start all of them. If THe Rangers clinch home ice, they can stay in New York from Friday 04 April all the way until after Game 2, which should be around the 14th or 15th.

My guess is that if the Rangers open against the Caps or Flyers, NBC will want a Sunday game, so they will start the Rangers on the 12th (thurs) and Game 2 will be the 15th (sun).

Of course, I'm speculating. By the point is to show that Henrik in no way shape or form should feel overworked by the time the playoffs start.

Based on last night, Henrik needs more work to get his game back.

Hank's game was just fine. If not for Mitchell, he would probably have had a shutout. Buffalo was getting nowhere, he had the door shut. Then Mitchell and an open invitation for oddman rushes for the rest of the game happened. Sure, we looked like garbage in our zone for most of the game, but at least they supported Hank. Sure, he could've had the 3rd goal, but he could've allowed a couple before that sequence anyway. We wouldn't have scored any more goals that night anyway.

It's incredible how quickly fans completely ignore 2/3 of the game and base the entire performance of one player on one period, solely because he allows a goal they think he should've had, regardless of the situation it happened.

Funny how somehow that loss i Hank's in so many eyes. Funny, the team scored just as many goals in our own net as in theirs, how the hell is that a loss on the goalie, who had to make highlight reel saves all night just to keep us in it? But no, of course the loss is his when he lets in a goal he probably could've had with some more luck, on the plethora of quality scoring chances we allowed. Statistically, we lost that game with just the right amount as we should have.

Hank had a "bad" game because the team had a ****ing awful game.

4-4-1 with an .889 SVPCT in March.

Yeah...it's all Mitchell's fault.

Based on the last month, really. Over a 10 game stretch Henrik has dropped his SV% from .940 to .933, and upped his GAA from 1.77 to 1.91.

Look at his last 9 games. http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id...12012&view=log

6 of the 9 of them he has been below .900, and only one game did he post above .909

Please start Hank tonight. He should be more than capable of handling this Toronto team. He looked good last night despite the 4 goals and he's only played 55 games this year. He has more than enough rest.

The Leafs are an embarrassment to the sport.

I want retribution. Sauer's injury has derailed the effectiveness of the defense.

I find it interesting the Rangers aren't going to try another call up. I got to admit I would rather see Deveaux or Wellman in our line up than Mitchell. I think Deveaux would look solid with Rupp.

Just want to say:

As I was checking the site, I saw an ad for "Long Island Medium".

I don't watch much TV anymore but has television turned into some sort of "Grand Theft Auto" Rockstar parody or something? My brain did a double take.
