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.
Completely agree. What is worrying me as a fan right now is not if they can improve their game. It's if they can continue controlling the puck and dictating play once they get into DC. After the regular season and first round, this team has shown nothing to indicate that they won't be able to.
listen, guys. WSH did what the needed to do and escaped with a win. literally, they escaped. after watching our play last series compared to this one, I'm not worried at all. we literally pissed all over them for two straight games. we made a few bad plays and they were opportunistic but they have had no flow, no sustained pressure, no threat to their game at all so far.
the better team lost tonight and it's clear. Holtby should scare nobody. if we keep this play up and a few top guys show up for gm 3, there's really no need to worry. it sucks knowing that we let one get away that we owned but that's hockey and that's why they play the games.
WSH should feel good about the split but lets not jump off a bridge here. they need to do that 3 more times to winthis series and we all KNOW this team wont let that happen. NYR in 6.
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....
But they weren't cheering when the Rangers were creating pressure, going crazy when the Rangers were treating Green like their personal meat pinata, when they had breakaways, and the Garden itself was quiet when Rangers scored the two goals.
Im not worried at all. We take this in 5, I truly believe it. We have been the better team, and flat out dominated them for long stretches tonight. Im usually on the more pessimistic side, but after seeing that game tonight, it reaffirms my thought that we win the next 3.
