Cant blame the refs at all. It's playoff hockey. They let a ton of stuff go, and gave Ottawa two minors for hitting after the whistle, which almost never gets called in the playoffs.

Ottawa bounced back and played a better game. The Rangers were sloppy all night long in every zone. Sloppy everything, minus the tic-tac-toe Boyle goal and the PK.

I expect this team to come out focused and win game three...it's been their pattern all year. My biggest problem remains how they sat back in the 3rd period. That's where they missed Dubi, who is an effective forechecker. The icings were driving me out of my mind.

Coaching lost this game. You could see that the players sat back and didn't forecheck. The coaches' plan was to sit back and play defense and try to squeeze out a 2-1 victory. That's not that players choice, that's what they were told to do. Blame falls completely on Torts/Sullivan.

The Rangers showed complete superiority much of the time. Then for some reason they stop doing it. It was so obvious that they let up, again. Last game they had a cushion of 4 goals, tonight, aah....not so many.

That's all it comes down to. Other than that they displayed clear superiority much of the time.

I wonder if they should not get a handle on how the game is being called, and then simply match the Senators for interference, illegal hits, bearhugs, slew foots. The old "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality.

I cant believe Ottawa fans think the face wash type punches on Karlsson from game one were so devastating.

I need to see the sequence again, but it looked like they were perfectly fine, but the puck took a typical Garden ice bounce, which messed up the clear. Then Ottawa, who KNOWS HOW TO PLAY AT THE GARDEN, overpursued the puck, which seems to work at the Garden, and forced AA to shoot the puck down the ice...a play that might not even be called icing depending on the situation.

Then they lose the faceoff, and a few bad breaks off the shot, bang it's in the back of the net, good night.

The Good: Boyle's offense and the team standing up for each other
The Bad: Del Zotto kicking the puck into our net. Killed our momentum and gave Ottawa energy
The Redden: The dismal PP costing us a chance to run away with the game, especially on the 5min major.

Dishonorable mention: The MSG ice was so bad tonight, thanks to the garbage Knicks. Bad bounces, especially on Ottawa's second goal, surely didn't help at all.

Agreed really can't get mad at the refs (in this context). Sloppy sloppy play from the Rangers.

The 7 min of PK turned the tide. But the Rangers never showed a sense of urgency in grabbing the momentum back. This team has no killer instinct. Disgusting.

The PP at least scored a goal. The Redden was the Rangers being content with sitting back and getting pelted with a one goal lead.

Everyone calm down. They needed DZ to score an own goal, Dubi to get ejected, and hank to lose his stick to BARELY WIN
Why is anyone worried?

We got this. Number one seed. Give this team some credit ffs

Faceofffffffs.

Ice the puck > Lose Faceoff > Let a goal get scored > Lose the game.

Ice the puck > Win Faceoff > get it out > Dont lose game.



It's amazing how the entire season, this team has sucked so bad at winning faceoffs. Torts and Sather have known this and did nothing besides "Send Messier to help teach faceoffs".

I'm not by any means feeling like we're in trouble with the series BUT I am still like "WTF?" that we only traded for John Scott at the deadline. Should've gone for a faceoff specialist, someone who's badass at winning the draw on a consistent basis. A common factor in most championship teams is that they have 1 or 2 guys that can win the draw more often than not.

To be fair it's only the one or two retards who actually come to our board to troll us that seem to think that.

1 goal isn't enough when you're on the powerplay for 18 out of 60 minutes.

It looked like 5 on 5 during that major power play and the Rangers barely mustered any offense.

The Rangers ALWAYS get content and sit back and protect a lead. They do it every game, whether it is one goal, two goals whatever. This is why we don't blow out teams because once we get a lead, we shift into a 1-3-1 trap.

It has been successful for us most of the season. Tonight, we just got burned by a bad bounce (it going through Staal).

I wonder if Stepan realizes the playoffs have started. Would have been nice if he showed up after Dubi was ejected. Oh well.

That being said, he is far from the only one who played poorly. The first PP unit is a joke, we could have won this game in the 1st if they capitalized on the 5 minute PP. Of course Hagelin made a costly mistake, and Staal and DZ were far from stellar.

And where the hell was the emotion after the Boyle goal? Whatever was said in the locker room between the 3rd period and OT should never be said again. I have never seen a team come out so flat and unenergized in OT.

Jason Spezza is #24 in the league at faceoffs. Brian Boyle is #39. Who exactly do you expect the Rangers to get?
