now that I can post, Did that remind anyone else of the Parise Team USA goal from the VAN Olympics?

But holy crap, my house was shaking.

We both agreed that Lundqvist was pretty average tonight but it's all forgotten. Let's focus on the positives now.

When Staal scored the game winner, one of the first things I thought of was how so many Rangers fans were giving up on him around January/February when he just returned from his concussion. An alarming amount of posters thought he was an expendable piece. Tonight's game showed exactly why he isn't... not just because of the game winner in OT, but because of the game-saving play he made on the 3-on-1 on the 3rd. Staal has been and will continue to be the backbone of this defense.

I can't stop thinking on how many guys turned of the telly, went to bed to wake up tomorrow and see a 3-2 Rangers series lol.

I am staying awake now, have to go to work in 2 hours, going to watch the preds game till then
How was that a BS goal? Boyle can't control the puck: goes to the caps player into the slot he scores point blank.

Opportunistic, but certainly not BS or weak.

The Rangers played poorly for the last two periods of that game.

They didn't show any desperation on our PP on the game winner. Staal makes a great individual effort(granted the team finally decided to screen the goalie).

This.

Hank had a meh game by his standards and still won. About time we help out our goalie for a change.

Let's hope we take this in 6 and let the Philly-NJ series go on a bit.

Don't get ahead of yourselves people, if Richards was one step further back or the Caps don't take a penalty we're all drowning our sorrows right now. We're still going to lose the next game and have a tough game 7 ahead of us.

This was not a well played game by the Rangers. They need to be better, take this as a HUGE opportunity for game 6.

Caps are NOT out of this series by any stretch. The Rangers need to have a more decisive game(like game 1).

Also the "throw everything at the net" strategy is not working against Holtby. They need some crisper plays.
38 on net

25 blocked

63 shot attempts.

A .950 save percentage still is 3 goals.

The Rangers controlled this game and were unlucky to be down 2-1

When you have a goalie stopping everything, you don't try to be to fine with your shots. You throw the kitchen sink at his head and crash for rebounds.

That pretty play BS gets the Rangers in trouble.

Awesome win.

But if we're gonna go all the way, Lundqvist MUST be better. He's been average in 3 out of the last 4 games.

When they show the bench you see him running around going nuts for both goals in a Lundqvist jersey. If I can find it i'll post it.

He played outstanding save for blundering the puck on the point(something he has had a problem with his whole career)that one shift.

I swear if he could develop just a little bit more ability to corral the puck or some lateral skating he could be a solid point shooter.

I honestly was sitting back with my hands on my head, swearing and *****ing and watching them chip at it, I didn't even know it was in until they raised their arms. After watching it, it was like a gift from the hockey Gods themselves man. Rangers need to stop giving me heart attacks. Epic Epic Epic game.

Not luck...last minute hard work and perseverance.

Totally agree.

Heroics is a great word, but used negatively...this is how this team has played all year...despite they haven't scored a goal this late in a playoff game in twenty years.

I feel like this is most people's anthem on this board...everyone looks for the negative. Always with the negative. There were so many positives with this team tonite. Pocket Rockets (AA) was terrible and gave up several turnovers as well as several terrible moments in their zone against their boards but several positives...who would've thought that Stralman would be our next best defenseman after McD.

Quote:

Simple answer: Of course...this is the playoffs

This is how the first and last goal was scored. Crisper plays is something they've tried all year, especially on the PP...they've been TERRIBLE when trying to be perfect and pretty. I love scoring goals off rebounds, especially from under the blue line...thats how all three goals were scored...Stralzy from a terrible angle...Richards banging in the junk in front of the net and Staalzy (haha Stralzy & Staalzy) from the point with plenty of oomph.
