Got outplayed that period. Hopefully the PP on a fresh sheet of ice can get things going. Seeing as the Rangers can almost never win a faceoff, why don't they just assume they'll lose it and play accordingly?
Call against Boyle was awful, might as well just instruct all goalies to run into people, instant PP.
Glad to see that the referees are in mid-season form.
Not a bad period in spite of what the stats say. With six minutes worth of penalties, it really wasn't possible for the Rangers to establish any pressure. At even strength I think the play is actually relatively even.
Let's gain some momentum off the PP to start the period and see what happens.
Only problem I have is these line combos. Top 2 lines have 3 of 4 wingers out of position. Two players (Callahan/Stepan) who never had any chemistry. and a player (Hagelin) who has no business being on the 1st line. imo.
