I never thought we'd be down 2-0 after 2 following game 5. Holtby has been solid back there, but he's giving up rebounds. Have to crash the net and get a dirty one. I still have faith in this team. If not tonight, then we take it in 7... but let's get this done tonight.
I changed my t-shirt under the jersey, may have to switch up beers in the 3rd period too, but have to finish the growler first.... Believe! Let's Go Rangers!!!!
Remember in '94 when Mclean was lights out and the very next game the Rangers got in his face and stayed there? Where is the courage to deviate from the plan a bit and make things happen. I don't buy that they're tired or don't want it. The offense has simply closed it's doors for the year. Every stick has gone to sleep. We saw this in March when the team did nothing to improve...and we're seeing it now. The Defense and Hank have carried this team a lot farther than it probably deserves to be.
We've been in his face but Callahan has choked on like 4 rebounds tonight. Worst game of his career imo.
A supposedly championship caliber team should not **** the bed like this in an elimination game. This team has no killer instinct, an anemic offense and powerplay, and is getting severely outworked. Those problems should give any Rangers fan powerful doubts about the outcome of Game 7.
Did they **** the bed in game 6 or 7 against Ottawa when they were facing elimination? The sad truth of it is that this team only seems to light a fire under their ***** when their backs are literally right up against the wall. They look completely terrible out there tonight. No killer instinct at all. Let's hope they're able to light that fire sometime between now and Saturday...
We're not ******** the bed. We're being outplayed. I don't think you guys have watched any recent championship teams that closely, you seem to have some glorified vision of what a cup team looks like.
Maybe you should watch the ******** accusations that you throw around. I'm quite sure you're not the only who follows playoff hockey
How many Cup-winning teams do you remember that consistantly struggled this badly on offense at this point in the playoffs?
You have your eyes closed if you don't think they're ******** the bed. What aspect of this team (goaltending aside) is clicking properly? What do you see in the game so far that encourages you? For the Rangers to perform like this in an elimination game is pathetic. Yes, they're being outplayed, but their performance has been putrid so far.
