Same powerplay problems as the Rangers have had most of the season.. if they manage to establish the powerplay in the opponents zone (and thats a big if with the dump and chase thing they insist on doing..), we just end up having 5 men practically standing COMPLETELY still..hardly moving at all, and passing between them.. its really sad to watch
All you people who have given up right now and say we won't score, don't bother posting once the game is over if we win. This team has found away to win battles this year, give your team a ****ing chance before giving up.
Agreed. We had chances. It's not like there's no hope.
Every single fan who wants the team to "stay the course"? This is what staying the course gets you. We have no ****ing scoring. Nowhere in the system do we have any real, legitimate scoring. Not the type that we need, really. We need a legitimate sniper.
Stay the course. What a joke that is.
We can only hope Christian Thomas can become that guy. Not holding my breath though
We all know how this is going to play out. The Sens win it with a shutout, then they go on to play the next team in the playoffs and get hosed. Anderson is a good goalie but we aren't testing him AT ALL. He is making basic saves from 30 feet out without screens.
Dont complain about the offense..I told you guys we need a scorer that the playoffs were a different beast where Defense tightens up more than in the regular season and many here said no leave the team as is..now you gotta live and die with it..so dont complain about offense. Its the offense many were comfortable with.
Remember all the stat geeks telling us that, statistically the Rangers were in great shape because they scored more than 3 goals more often than blah blah blah blah blah. The writing was on the wall at the deadline. Nothing was done. Oh well. Just another chapter in the embarrassing history of the NY Rangers.
i'm seeing more energy from the rangers out there...more than there was in game 5...they need to elevate it even more and get a couple here in the second...i feel them close....i know they can do it!!!
