I think it's tough to lay the blame on Torts' line combinations. Fact of the matter is, the boys weren't playing hard. i dont know what changing the lines will do for a team that was, for maybe the first time in 2 months.....Lazy.
well i really thinik torts should have realized who was trying and put them on a line, like he usually does...kreider had/has jump and was looking great out there, so i dont know why torts took so long to move him up....
i hope torts watches the tape...sees this and juggles his lines to get kreider up to one of the top 2 lines...look kreider is the Xfactor, he is like the secret weapon, he looks well rested with so much jump...he will make a difference in game 7 if he is really given a chance!
What's that be completely ineffective in the offensive zone and pray for a bounce off a Caps' ass? There were 0 minutes of this game that they should try to emulate. A complete disgrace of a performance. A joke. They embarrassed the organization.
Traffic in front is often "lucky".
They played well in the last ten minutes. Really, I don't think this game was nearly as bad as it's being made out as. Oh yeah, it was bad, but the Rangers still had their chances and stretches of solid play. Torts' stubborness and refusal to adjsut lost us this game.
SEEN YOUR VIDEO!
I thought this was the worst performance by the skaters in a LOOONNNGGG while. I dont think they hustled at all.
I also think ridiculously outcoached is kinda funny. Home team gets last change. they are going to get the matchups they want unless you want to play the keep away game. only issue i have with torts were the lines, and i dont really think they were as awful as everyone else.
good? no. awful? no.
C'mon Inferno, even you have to admit that the lines Torts rolled tonight were horrorshow material. Vampire Hunter can play the matchups all he wants, but the away coaches can make adjustments too. Our coach made none, and that's where the game was lost.
I can accept the loss tonite but I cannot accept the effort. It's like they didn't even try. Absolute ******** performance by the Rangers tonite. The fact that they even scored that goal is ****ing insulting! You had 59 minutes before that to show some ****ing desperation and you wait untill the final minute!!?? Pathetic.
That being said, the season is not over. Game 7 here we come...again. ****ing Rangers play better with the gun to their heads anyway...
Oh, I drive myself absolutely crazy during football season because I have to wait a week. Even when my team wins, I go crazy waiting because I want the next game to happen already. And it's of course worse when they lose. Drives me up a freakin' wall.
