Blaming Hank is pathetic. All the cursing out the team is bad, but blaming Hank is just blind rage.
This game would have been 10-3 like the Pens/Flyers game if it wasn't for Hank. You think we win 1-0 the other night without Hank's 39 saves? That shot that Hank "should have had" was a SNIPE. We got out worked, out played and have NO offense to speak of. Didn't deserve it.
Please. The Sens only had a few really good scoring chances.
All 3 goals were stoppable.
1-7 career in overtime.
Cant blame the team at all. They gave him a 2-0 lead.
The last goal was def a softie but its a team loss because our best forwards dont feel like showing up in the playoffs. Its really hard to watch us (a number 1 seed) struggle against an 8 seed without their captain and arguably best player.
On their heels most of the game, Richards showing rather low hockey IQ, Stepan MIA, Dubi and Anisimov already are looking for apartments in Columbus, Gaborik nothing to show for, Boyle held in check... uff.
PP once again costs them the game... yes, 2 PP goals in the first were results from good bounces, they goals weren't scored with authority and/or plays.
After the 1st OTT goal I wanted to rip Mitchell's head off mofo. Way to backcheck.
Dont worry boys we'll get it back in game 5. Rangers were tired tonight for whatever reason. See you for game 5 at the Garden. LGR!!!!!!!!!!
You are an excellent fan.
Staal was great. I thought Dubinsky played well (I know I'll get flack for that). Team is lacking snarl. Only Staal played really tough. We grind but we don't punish at all. Bad forecheck. Losing lots of battles. Getting outworked. Henrik is phenomenal. That goal was an absolute snipe. Gotta come back with a whole different game plan next time. Boyle and Rupp can't be your most dangerous looking offensive players. And if we're gonna burn years on Kreider's contract and lose anyhow, we might as well let the kid have some PP time.
Hey... Let's sit back on a lead some more! Worked against Wash last yr! Worked in game 1 (it did actually) and in game 2! Let's keep it going!!! Score 2, heck, even 1 and sit back and reap the rewards!!!
