You guys are acting like you've never seen a playoff loss before.

The cup winning 2008 Red Wings needed 6 games to beat the 8th seed Predators.

The 2010 winning Blackhawks needed 6 to beat the Preds.
I can take the loss, really don't like what I'm seeing on the ice. They are not playing hard enough. The forecheck was barely there, the offense is almost all periphery and they are not generating any quality threats for the majority of the play.... Don't like it.

Blaming the effort is a cop out. The Rangers had a bunch of good chances. They blocked a ton of shots.

You guys and protect Henrik all you want, but his career playoff numbers are not level with what he does in the regular season. That's a telltale sign.
You have got to be kidding me?! I don't even recall one difficult save Anderson had to make in the last two periods and OT. All he had to do was stand his ground because that's where we were shooting the puck: At him.

We had to block 30+ shots while I don't think the Senators even encroached double digits.

We're not shooting enough. Shooting the puck off the boards is not what I call offensive pressure. Doing nothing with the puck is not what I call offensive pressure.

Any game you lose is a bad game. There are no moral victories in hockey. Not one.

2. Hank choked. Say anything you want about it being a good shot, but a Superstar needs to have that.

3. We score 2 goals on the PP by getting the puck to the net…and then spend the rest of our PP time dicking around the perimeter like we have been doing all season. That is coaching and that is terrible coaching.

Unlike last year, if we blow this every single regular season accomplishment is meaningless. Time to get it together fast.
You don't think the screen made it harder to pick up the shot?

The series is far from over, but through 4 games, there are a bunch of guys who just havent shown up.

Game 5 should be fun. Sens should have all the momentum. Three straight games where they carried the play and won two games in OT.

I told everyone who would listen Carkner a meat-head goon.

This guy can definitely play like he did for Ottawa's old coach.

I cannot put to words how unbelievably angry I am right now, I want to break everything I touch and it's taking every ounce of rational thought not to throw this laptop against the wall.

It isn't any different.

Same story, different year.

Can't score what else is new...

Tired of it. It needs to be addressed in the off season. Do not be afraid to make a trade. They have depth.

Like the Pens and Flyers.

You'd rather be one of those teams right now?

Take a look at the East. Exactly whose spot would you be taking right now?

On to game 5. Winner of that takes the series.

Anyone else down to trade Dubinsky, MDZ, and Stepan for Nash?

All I know is this team has no answer for Karlsson and Gonchar.
They are just DOMINATING the game.

Anybody know the Rangers all-time record in playoff OTs??

I've been watching this team since 1973 and in my recollection..... It hasn't been good.

They've been dominated in the last two games, and even large portions of the first two games. They look like a joke of a #1 seed.

Yea, it made it harder. I believe that in a high pressure situation, on a stoppable shot, a superstar comes up big.

How the hell is Marian Gaborik getting shut down by the Senators, who don't have a shutdown defenseman? Karlsson is fairly average defensively.

this isnt the typical walk to the ledge madness you see on these boards, ive been quite optimistic all season.

the fact that we are lucky to be tied with the 8th seed, who has been basically dominating us, pretty much has me convinced we arent making it past the 2nd round. IF we make it out of the 1st.
We're also 2 goals away from this being a series sweep. Rangers have played this type of close game all year, and have also looked overmatched by superior teams, only to find themselves on the losing end before. It's certainly possible the Rangers lose the next two and have their season end. I still think it's just as likely (if not more so) that the Rangers pull out this series. Just gotta keep the faith.

Does anybody know that kid from 24/7 that texts Torts?


Can you please tell him to stop putting Mitchell on the ice during the last 30 seconds of the power play, please!

Well, Drury's influence on Callahan is quite apparent.

Absolutely unacceptable coaching.
Agreed, there is no reason to have Fedotenko and Prust on the ice more than Gaborik, Richards, Callahan, Dubinsky, Stepan, Boyle. You have a tied game and you put players who have a combined total of 14 goals on the ice? I don't care how crappy those other guys are playing right now. You live and die by your best players.
