I'm going to lose sleep over that call until Game 3 rolls around.

We win this game if not for the 2 gaffes on the 1st and 2nd goals and if the referees don't call that dive.

We can take them.

Rangers are fine. Have a good chance to win both in DC.

What won't happen again? Hank making a mistake or the refs jobbing the Rangers? Both will happen, just hope they don't both happen in the same game in the next two weeks.

The biased refs caused us to lose again. After seeing the Rangers tie it on a PP and having momentum, then killing off the first (BS) penalty, they decided it was time to end the game. Back to back BS penalties in the 3rd = NHL win and Rangers loss.

I seriously hate the NHL refs and league officials. They ruin an awesome sport with their biased calls and decisions. If these idiots were held accountable like all other sports, this wouldn't happen. But too bad ESPN hates hockey and would rather talk about NFL and NBA 24/7.

absolutely infuriating loss. the refs handed this one to the Caps on a silver platter. Not worried about it. We made the Caps our ***** tonight all over the ice and hit them hard every chance we got. They won't last past game 3.

pissed off about the result but its even more annoying when the analysts go on about how well ovy is handling reduced ice time and ****. do u think hunter wants to play some scrubs over his most talented players??!? if their skilled players played with intelligence and consistent effort they would be getting ice time over significantly less talented players.

God, I am trying so hard not to rage right now. I need to buy myself something to feel better.

Wonder how much NHL refs are going for on Amazon?
exactly.

If we eliminate two mental mistakes this game is ours, If we continue to play this way we should be able to take the series. It reminds me of our playoff series last year just in reverse


The Rangers handed the Caps 2 goals on a silver platter....


...But the 3rd goal was the direct result of a terrible call. You can't let everything go for 30 minutes and suddenly start calling ******** stuff in the last 10 minutes of a tie game. That's inexcusable.

Borderline calls by the refs

pretty much sums it up.

Play every night like we did tonight and the series is ours. What worries me is that the Rangers don't play well in DC.

Serves them right.
I'm sorry, but this is an idiotic post.

Of course fans are more interested in winning; not their fault our team dug themselves into a hole early in the game.

Wtf is this? On the post game they didn't shut off the mics of the analysts in the studio and you can hear someone whisper "he's definitely feeling the pressure" during Lundqvists interview.

What he did was beyond diving. After he landed on the ice he literally threw his stick and started flopping like a fish

The Hank mistake. He had a meh game. I don't expect to see it again.

Very confident for Game 3. Capitals are much more inferior than most of our fears pegged them before the post-season.

You know what's nice? Winning faceoffs. Crucial to the possession game and this team's style of play. I am 100% confident that the Rangers win this series. Should have won tonight in spite of Hank being "off". Holtby looks shaky, just need to finish.

agreed ... the home ice advantage for Washington worries me a lot. We need to steal one down there to regain home ice.

Stephen Walkom has been incompetent in EVERY single play-off game this year. He's flat-out terrible.

Brian Boyle should go back on the IR. He was especially bad on draws in the defensive zone. I don't care about the 3 goals he scored, he still blows.

The senators are leaps and bounds better than the caps. Crap loss but hey you can't win em all. Regroup and respond with a win in Washington. Game by game.

I simply am not worried. The boneheaded move by Henrik on the 2nd goal - I can't remember the last time he did anything close.
Beating the Capitals all over the ice tonight, otherwise.

And not a good game by Boyle at all.

They are? NYR just kill a 2 minute PP in game 2 of tie game in 3rd period, and the fans chant a countdown for Ovechkin? Sure....

I'll blame the refs all I want. It's a joke how bad the officials have been ALL PLAYOFFS across the board for every damn series. The NHL really should look into this because it's becoming blatantly obvious.
