Kreider is the type of player who excels with talent around him. put him with stepan or richards. hagelin was a major liability

It's easy to look impressive when you face 21 shots, he is a good goalie but didn't have to do much tonight. We need more shots and that is something Torts needs to fix.

Positives:
+ Lundqvist looks like he is in mid-season form. Fantastic game from him tonight. We will need that moving forward.

+ Nash was dynamic tonight. That said, he was inconsistent tonight. He showed flashes of brilliance, and mediocrity at the same time.

Negatives:

- Top six, overall, was a no show tonight. I thought Richard's vision was questionable.

- Gaborik looked lost. That said, he just had major shoulder surgery, and it's what I expected. Coming back from an injury like that will take time for Gaborik to find his game.

- PP looked completely inept. Go back to the drawing board folks. A PP with Richards, Gaborik, Nash, Callahan and Del Zotto should be running the show. It's the most talent we have had on a PP in years. The game could have been won if we scored on that 5-on-3. It's an issue that has been haunting us for years. Get this fixed EARLY in the season.

- Team looked out of sync. Choppy passes, blind passes, passes not connecting. It just wasn't there.

EDIT: Are we not doing Stars of the Game polls anymore?

It doesn't make sense. But can you blame the people that came up with it. In a very neanderthal-like way people think fighting is the most important part of hockey. That's how you give credit to players for fights.

Kind of what I was sensing. Sort of felt like that is how Boyle was feeling... Good to be confident, but they need to keep a level head.

The guys aren't feeling comfortable with each other. I'm nto sure why but there's just a lack of buzz and energy to this team right now and that has to change by tomorrow or it'll be the same story

On a side note, Tarasenko scored 2 goals tonight.

Can't believe we still passed on him in 2010, ugh.

You do realize that the Bruins are as much of Cup favorites as we are right? Nothing humiliating about this game. There are teams that are bound to start this way. Detroit is getting blown out. The most improved team in the East (Carolina) got blown out. The defending Cup champs got blown out. It's just one game.

Big problem tonight was the boards. The Rangers kept trying to force EVERYTHING in their own zone into the boards, and the Bruins were just waiting there for those turnovers. If they took the time and carried or had outlet areas they knew they could pass to they would have been under a LOT less pressure.

All in all it was pretty much how i expected the game to go. We played against an established team and they looked like they were in midseason form. We're integrating a new top line player, a rookie in Kreider, Halpern, pyatt and seagal....is anyone really all that surprised that a Bruins team that's basically played together for like 3 straight years creamed us?

Regarding the Lundqvist save: that puck was in the net. Just because the legal view says it isn't doesn't make it any less true from a certain perspective. He'll get credit for a save, but it shouldn't contend for highlights of the year.

It doesn't sound like an exaggeration.. It IS an exaggeration. The Bruins have a lot of guys who have been playing during the lockout. Our team is a little rusty but there were good things to take from this game... like Hank playing fantastic. I have little doubt they can right this ship after 1 game with 47 to go.

I don't know if that's it but it seemed guys were jittery. Bad passes and indecision all night. Gabby didn't skate or shoot like he does, and neither did a bunch of guys.

There's no reason for Hagelin to be on that top line. None.

The team will need to sit down with some cookies and get their team mentality composed. They were... lacking dimensions tonight. Dimensions come from identity and with changes to the line up, we definitely sat back a bit too much.

Yes. This does sound like an exaggeration.

Go Rangers!!!
The fact that a professional hockey team making millions of dollars needs to increase its battle level is pathetic. Reminds me of the listless teams of the dark years. This year is supposed to be above that.

Hagelin forgot to take his Ritalin. Kid obviously has ADHD.

Nash played well. McD and MDZ too. Didn't like Staal or Callahan.

Bickel won his battle but Rupp lost his. Segal had some moments.

Forecheck gets the Redden.

Trying to figure out which is more persistent? The weakness on offense and the PP or the complete loss of faith in the season after a single game.

There are several reasons, the question is whether you agree with them or not.

Henke and McD were the best two Rangers on the ice tonight. Just about everyone else had good and bad moments, aside from Hagelin and Bickel. Nash probably learned an important lesson tonight...do not pass to Bickel. Did Boyle win any faceoffs tonight? The ineptitude of the 5-on-3 is what finished the Rangers. Despite being outplayed, they were handed the opportunity to tie the game. Instead, opportunity wasted, and Boston regains momentum. I missed hockey, but, I didn't miss what I saw tonight.
