If the lines Torts used tonight are used on Saturday and we lose, I would be in favor of firing him on the spot and I'm serious. That's how much of a piss poor job Torts did tonight, a 10 year old could have coached a lot better tonight

anyone else seeing a pattern here......im willing to bet torts isnt
Nope.......Torts was outclassed and outmatched

The team was an absolute EMBARRASMENT out there

Torts has no idea of how to get this team to break down the Caps system

We simply don't have the players that have the balls to go to the net. We just don't have the players nor the Drive to play Smashmouth hockey.....ala the Kings

We are such a One Dimensional team.......which is Play it Safe, Grind it, Muck it

No creativity at all with our team.....unlike all the other teams left on the playoffs

it's pretty sad comming to this point with this team......

Don't understand why Torts wouldn't send a Rupp or a Prust out there for a shift just to **** with Holtby in the crease. RUN HIS ***!

The skaters played a terrible game and Torts was outcoached from the drop of the puck. Its a bad combination and both of those things need to change if we're gonna play the Devs.

Crash the net
Forecheck
block shots
check the Caps
have energy
got beat by speed

I actually feel our future opponents would be a hell of a lot better matchups then both the Sens and Caps.

Agreed and if Dubi is set to go then excellent maybe just maybe sit Mitchell??

Plus as we saw in the first game especially with that much speed on the top two lines they wear down the D of the Capitals

Being a Ranger fan you had to know they wouldn't close it out. It just doesn't work that way for us, even in a good year.

Need more Kreider he looked pretty good to me.

Just ****!

I think Tortorella's "we're just going about our business here, just play the next game" banalities have totally neutered this team. They show no emotion.

To come out and play like that in a game where you can close out a series is embarrassing.

We must remember that this is a very young team, and I really think that first goal, scored so early in the game, completely destabilized us, and took us off our game. Really think we will come out strong Saturday, and it is imperative we score first.
Also, some of our important second tier players (Artie, Step, Hags) must show up, including the captain, who has had a very quite series. Although, it would help if Stepan played with Cally, and maybe with Kreider, who can use his speed.

The winning percentage of teams leading a series 3 games to 2 in NHL history in game 6 is .568. The winning percentage in the series however is .793 and .818 for the team at home in game 7. This shows that alot of the teams winning a series after being up 3-2 are doing it in game 7. This isn't the end of the world.

On what planet?

Devils are going to be way more physical than the Caps. Plus they have just as good of a defense. The only thing weaker about that team is the goaltending.

Kings would kill us. Flat out.

Coyotes would be a serious struggle.

This is pretty much what I would have.

Prust, Mitchell, Rupp would almost never see the ice on even strength.

Prust mainly only play PK.

If they had Dubi, at least you'd have Dubinsky on line 3 and Boyle or Fedotenko on line 4. Much better look.

remember boston last year, 3 game 7s. 1st round against montreal they were up 3-2, lost game 6 on the road, won game 7 at home. conference finals against tampa bay they were up 3-2, lost game 6 on the road, won game 7 at home. sound familiar? we're still in a great spot. every one of us would have signed up for a game 7 at home with a spot in the eastern finals on the line, so lets do this.
