2. Speed of Hagelin and Kreider makes a huge difference. Sens had to be back more on their heels and Rangers had much more puck possession.

3. Rangers towards the end were getting a ton of odd man breaks. Need to capitalize.

4. Stepan looked so much more engaged and better. Having a second line that could be dangerous makes all the difference in the world. Anisimov towards the end also looked like a difference maker. Both of them need to do it again on Thursday.

5. The extra day to rest will benefit the Rangers more IMO.

6. I've been defending Dubinsky all season. No more. He looks awful, couldn't score on an empty net, looked like he couldn't even stay upright half the time. Unfortunately, his contract makes him untradeable for anyone of value except as a throw-in or a trade just to get rid of his contract.
He's been bad, but his PKing alone is huge right now

For the first time this season i got carried away after the first period. I was sure we were screwed. Didnt think we could score more than 1 goal tops. No way I thought we were coming back, and I was wrong.
The team showed some kick ass character, and proved me wrong. I am glad they did.
Cannot wait for game 7.

Oh, and I am sorry

Exactly...he and Callahan were a superb PK pair tonight. I'll never understand why Tortorella broke them up as a PK pair this year.

For now like them better apart, gives two different lines some speed. When you have speed, the other team can't pinch their defense so often, because they'll get caught in odd man breaks.

...he lost his PK spot this season too. I think he was 7th Among forwards in SH time this year.

Now wait just a gosh darned minute. If we could find a taker for Gomez (tee hee), we should be able to get someone to take Dubi.

Quick, someone call Montreal, have we got a deal for them. LOL.

Watch the highlights. NBC showed the net cam angle on the last goal. How the **** that is not a kick-in-goal is beyond me... The fact that they credited the goal to Spezza is ****ing disgraceful.

Maybe we can trade him to the Icelanders, that way, he can play like an MVP 6 times a year.

I compared this series to the 1992 one with the Devils. Sad part is that the Rangers in my lifetime just dont have many playoff series to use for reference.

Anyway, that was a nasty series. Kudos to MSG for constantly replaying the series in its entirety. It was horribly back and forth -- both the games and the goals.

JD is right -- when you have Game 7's, you need your "Big Boys" to dominate and set the tone.

Gaborik needs to break out. Henrik needs to be perfect early and stem the tide.

Everyone forgot that he is a great face off man.

He should have never been moved from center.

But we don't need a 3rd line center for that price. He needs to go.

The ref called it a goal. Every camera showed Neil made a distinctive kicking motion.

No cameras showed Neil definitively made contact with the puck. It was equally likely that Lundqvist's own stick caught it.

I don't remember the '92 Devils series. Refresh my memory please, or did you mean '94 Messier guarantee series.

Are you going to defend Neil spearing Hank in the crease, even allowing that puck to magically cross the line?

Wasnt Game 6 of that series the last ever bench clearing brawl? IIRC they changed the rules after that season. What I remember about Game 7 was Messier dominating and Turcotte scoring a goal in the first minute on a breakaway.

1992 -- Rangers best in the NHL, Devils 4th in the Patrick, went 7 games.

It was a war.

I was at the game and at the end of the day the Rangers were the better team tonight. I thought Ottawa was in control after the 1st period. The Rangers kept pushing their game and after the 1st goal to tie it up it started to turn a little bit. I thought Ottawa looked a little gassed.

The officiating again, eh? Sigh. It was bad all around. The Foligno call was more a reputation call because he has had a few of these this year. The last goal while in the context of the rules I don't think he kicked the puck in, the fact that he harpooned your goalie would have pissed me off , shoe on the other foot scenario. Overall, aside from those calls, I did not have a big problem with the refs. Of course, those were two HUGE mistakes.

I mentioned somewhere else that win or lose, Richards was going to be a key factor. He looked terrible in the 1st, especially on the PP. I mentioned to my brother " don't know why he doesn't just shoot the puck", well he did!

Kudos to Kreider scoring his 1st, must be a nice moment for him.

Kudos to Prust for taking a few. I don't think it changed anything though.

Gaborik and Dubinsky...feel sorry for you guys. Not good.

Spezza and Michalek...you won't feel sorry for me, that's for sure! Terrible.

Well, time to take a breather and get ready for Game 7. Whatever happens, it has been a memorable series.

That series pissed me off because the Rangers controlled Richer and Stevens but were getting lit up by super scrubs Kevin Todd and former Ranger Zdeno Ciger (who Devils radio guy used to call "Cee-gar")

Gartner won us that series. Only time he showed up in the playoffs besides game 5 against the Isles in 1990.

In my opinion the refs were heavily favoring the Sens, even with that ****ing skate in goal what the ****. Missed calls galore. Rupp with the roughing penalty? Give me a ****ing break. All in all, I'm glad we pulled through and kudos to Kreider he got his first NHL goal in the playoffs no less.
