They can't even make a clean pass in the neutral zone. And watching Gaborik pull up every time he's about to have a collision is starting to make me sick.

Well we scored 1 goal so the 2nd goal is what ended it. But 2-0 in the 3rd is a tall task but doable, 3-0 is pretty much impossible. That goal killed any chance we had of a comeback, not that we would have come back if he didn't give that goal up.

Looks like Richards exhausted all his heroism in the 2nd round. He's been very quiet this round.

Haha I've done that too. It feels cheap going 82-0. I always forget to change my new seasons to All-Star or Superstar... Whatever comes after Pro.

SnowBlindNYR for goalie coach next season, he has my vote. Why are we even using Benoit Allaire, the man for the job is right here on the board!!

This pretty much sums it up.

Because there is no reason to get on Hank for tonight. He's one of the best at his position....but you cant be great every night and he cant allow 0-1 goals every night. Expecting him to do so is just unrealistic.

Your frustration should be focused elsewhere. No other team I've ever seen thats gotten this deep in the playoffs before has such an inept offense. That alone shows how great Hank is.

this game really could have been even worse. by the way they were playing i was surprised they were able to kill off a 4 minute powerplay and a 5 on 3.

Just watched the game on DVR. Some thoughts

1. Of all the pathetic games the Rangers have played in the playoffs, this was by far the worst. Last I recollect, you don't win too many games scoring no goals (I don't count the Feds goal - game was for all intents and purposes over by then

2. I get what Tortarella was doing in the third period, resting the "stars" and McD and Girardi - why play them all when you need them in two days and the game is essentially over

3. When John Mitchell is about your best player with Mike Rupp, you're in trouble.

4. Torts needs to go to someone like Anisimov and say "do you like playing for the Rangers? because if you don't show up for the next game, you're out of here".

5. They really need to do something about the officiating - 11 power plays to 3 in NJ? Yeah, I know our PK is good and our PP sucks, but really. And why isn't Kovalchuk suspended a game for a deliberate spear and attempt to injure. I remember Phil Goyette (in the 1960's for you youngsters) having his career ended by a similar spear.

6. Can we watch the national feed for the game. Seems they picked up the Devils telecast - the Devils announcer, Doc Emrick, thenh between periods, Keith Jones discussing the Devils offense and then Milbury discussing the Devils defense. Oh wait, they ARE the national feed.

7. And finally, we aren't winning the Cup with Brian Boyle, Prust (when he returns), Rupp, Mitchell, Fedotenko, Stu Bickel scoring. Every first period it seems the Devils just want the puck more and are more willing to sacrifice. We need for our best players to show up from the opening faceoff and get some scoring chances early, not just try to weather 40 minutes with Lundqvist standing on his head and then we score in the third. Ain't going to happen next time, either.

The Rangers HAVE TO FORECHECK Devils Players NEAR THEIR OWN NET...They have to make sure the Devils are not crashing the net...That is what they are doing it is something we have to do on their end. Fire shots from the blue line and block Marty's view so he does not see the puck and then crash the net for any opportunities.

3-0 is the same as 2-0 with this team, We couldn't get anything going all game, who the hell cares how many goals Hank gives up when we can't even get quality shots on goal? We would have lost if this was a 0-0 game due to the fact of not being able to do ANYTHING in the offensive zone. When we play like crap, 3,5, or even 10 goals against is the same ****, we still played like girls no matter how many goals they scored.

yes. just do what i do when i'm angry. turn the penalties off and check marty when he goes behind the net for the puck. he'll do a back flip and lay down on the ice as if he's dead. then just score the empty netter. it feels good.

One problem with number 4, where is Anisimov gonna go? It's the conference finals, what are you gonna do, waive him?

Put the game difficulty on Rookie? I always score off of faceoffs sending the puck to the right defensemen. They never shoot wide in NHL12 and the top right corner is always open!

Just got back from the Rock, what a waste of money. I knew they could lose, but the lack of effort and urgency was a new low even for the Rangers. No shots in the first ten plus minutes? All they did was dump and no one chased, so many awkward blind passes, and Del Zotto... Holy ****! I actually was hoping they would put Bickel back on the ice in MDZs spot.

Again Torts in game adjustments make about as much sense as Stan Fischler's post game comments. If Gaborik fails to clear the puck and passes behind the net one more time Torts should be fired. Does he even attempt to correct this morons defensive mistakes.

Losses happen, but this was pathetic and for as nice as the Rock is the fans there cheer for guys like Grant Marshall, Sergei Brylin, or Slava Fetisov... I wonder if they even know who they are or why they are cheering? All Devils fans know is the corny "Hey Rangers suck" song or the even more impressive "Rangers suck and Flyers swallow." I feel that I got dumber just from being there for four hours.

This series is men vs boys right now. Barring something unforeseen Hank will need to steal another 2 for us to advance.

Thats the problem i made, i recently switched to allstar and i won a game and lost a game in OT and then got killed by Boston 7-5 lol i suck Lundqvist is terrible in NHL 12, the CPU keeps skating behind the net and coming around the front and putting it top shelf, it's a kids game.

It's easy to just say it, but we really don't have the skill to score any other way.
