It's full of trolls. To the brim.

Dwight King is better than Kreider.
Rangers don't deserve to win because Tortorella is their coach.
Rangers are the luckiest team in the league.

A very small sample of the garbage that is said there.

Stay far away.

Not surprised at all by the result so I don't get the point in overreacting now. Just come out fast get the first goal on Wednesday and all is right again.
The thing is, we haven't "come out fast" ONE TIME in this series... not once.

No forecheck, no offense. Random shot by Feds goes is not offense. Hank wasn't great, but this isn't on him. It's like the team was playing with house money tonight and they gambled it all away right off the bat.

Another 2 out of 3, another 6-7 game series. Nothing comes easy, but this is GREAT experience for the youth of this team. Getting to play in some big time games.

Yes, Richards and Gaborik. That's about it.

Both are cold right now. Besides that we have Callahan who's good but has a broken finger, Stepan who has the consistency of a richter scale in southern California, a rookie, and 7 grinders. I think you're overrating our talent to be honest.

This blaming the refs thing is getting old! Yes they are inconsistent and damn near suck the majority of these playoffs but you and I know that and so do the players so they need to game plan around it, that's what they are payed to do! Plus the refs had zero input in the outcome of this crapfest! The Rangers out right stunk up the joint this game and actually did the same most of the last game, minus Lundqvist. This team was lucky going in 2-1 and it showed. They have been seriously lacking in a dominating type game in this series. They looked tired and beat and seem to more or less wish for a goal rather than actually work for it. They have been playing a dump and chase game (as with most of the season) but minus the chase. Granted Marty has been diminishing the effect of the dump and chase game but adjustments need to be made and they haven't been. Outright horrible performance by all tonight! Del Zotto has been horrible and Lundqvist was lackluster tonight and it obviously showed. The puck, obviously, needs to be played more in the opposition zone and it hasn't been.
Strong first post. Pretty much covered all my thoughts on the game.

I thought Gabby was one of the more dangerous players on the ice for the Rangers this game. He was engaged and was shooting when he had the chance, but the Devils were draped all over everyone all game and the penalty calls were "interesting" to say the least.

Oh well, on to next game... back at MSG. Last change in effect, home crown in effect.

We all knew this would go 7.

LGR.

I feel very confident that a team with players like Gaborik, Richards, Hagelin, Callahan, Step, Kreider, and DZ should be able to generate more than 2 damn goals every other game.

I'm not expecting a Canucks offense by any means but the struggles to even break 3 are becoming legendary.

if we win the cup we might be the team with the lowest scoring average in the playoffs to ever to win the cup. i think they showed a graphic on tv a couple days ago and so far i think the 45 maple leafs are the only team to score less goals and win the cup.

Well that was ugly. It is difficult to understand why they come out not ready to play. Maybe they are just worn down. They made Uncle Daddy look like a world beater again.

Dump Chase, Dump Chase. Falls right into Brodeur's hands. Torts system is a joke and his inability to make adjustments is killing us. Yes, we have a severe lack of depth with too many grinders with stone hands and pudding brains, but our offensively talented players also are made to look like grinders (except Gaborik, weak as ****). Our forwards should take a look in the mirror, a college kid with no professional experience is outplaying ALL of them.

but thats the thing, they wont win the cup continuing to play this way. too little margin for error to survive for 16 wins. when every game and every series is as close as it can possibly be its eventually gonna wear you out. we desperately need a game like the devils had tonite, get 2 early ones and basically coast from there.

Looking back at the tape, we really just played horribly all around the whole game. We got all the little things wrong offensively, and weren't able to maintain any kind of sustained pressure all night long.

If they needed a horrid performance to get them fired up, this was it.

Has Torts just given up on Anisimov, with this team struggling to score you would think that he would be getting more shifts and ice time then mitchell, and way more then 6 minutes a game?

The horrid performances in games 1, 2, and 3 didn't seem to do the trick.

Kind of crazy they are now 6-0 in games 1 and 3 combined, and 0-6 in games 2 and 4 combined. I still feel good. I would say we will come out hard early, but that's never the case haha. We got this guys, talk about this one tonight, and move onto Wednesday which will be a better day.

it does really help that we have such a great home ice with a great atmosphere. that's where most of our big playoff wins come from.

Yep. The way they played tonight is how everyone THOUGHT they were playing last game. Last game they were significantly better in the first two periods and unfathomably better in the 3rd- this game was just atrocious all around.

1 and 3 weren't horrid performances and 2 was not nearly as bad as this. Fact.

OK maybe 1 wasn't horrid and at least we had the lead in 2, but 3 was absolutely brutal. I'm willing to call that the biggest steal of Hank's career.

No way. 3 was the same as 1- outplayed in the first, more even in the second, and then we put on a clinic in the third. There were more good things in the 3rd period of game 3 than in all periods of this game.

This we were just thoroughly outplayed all game. No hustle.

The biggest steal of Hanks career has to be against Vancouver this year.

I would feel ok about being tied if I felt there was a chance we could come out storming the castle in game 5, but I feel violated after that. It's hard to imagine even competing with this team after witnessing that.

I don't know what's worse, this game or game 6 against the Caps.

Whatever, on to the next one. Let's win one at home.

I honestly didn't want this to go 6 or 7 games but it looks like that's the hand we're dealt so let's beat these ****ers.
