I actually think the Pens are a worse matchup for the Rangers than the Bruins were. Rangers, in past years, have really struggled against fast/quick teams.

Boston wasn't that fast or quick, just more structured/physical. Don't fool yourselves into thinking Pens are a better matchup. They aren't.

Rangers are going to have to improve, significantly, tomorrow night if they want a chance to win. Personally, I think there is a good chance they lose tomorrow as well.

The team probably won't start to settle down until they get a couple solid practices in. I expect we will look better this coming wednesday.

As I have said prior I could care less where we finish this season so long as we make the playoffs with everyone healthy. In a season like this that is the imperative factor.

Having home ice advantage feels a lot different than not having it... anyway. Not impressed, actually rudely appalled. Get it together, open the game up offensively. You have the tools, Rangers.

Not sure why you said asked Really? as we pretty much just agreed with each other lol. It was a bad game and it mirrored the bad games from last season, so we were off the mark in terms of team D and our break outs blew.

Just finished catching up on the DVR, wish I hadn't. That save by Lundqvist was the only bright spot in a VERY lethargic game. Thought Nash looked good at times but other times not so much.

Constantly losing 1 on 1 battles and faceoffs was the reason the Rangers lost this game. They got schooled in their own system by the Bruins.

That 5 on 3 was atrocious.

All that said, just one game. I'm sure they know they sucked, hope for better things tomorrow night and just thoroughly ecstatic that hockey is back.

Stepan needs some serious work. The guy is just a flat out disgrace out there sometimes.

It's only Game 1 but that was dreadful. I watched nearly every game today. Nobody looked as bad as we did.
The Flyers in the first period did. And the Red Wings were worse. I haven't watched the Canucks game, but I bet you their fans are saying they are awful as well.

Couldn't agree with you more. Seemed like they were playing the game in slow motion tonight...absolutely no forecheck.

Reminded me a lot of the first couple games in Europe last year. They'll figure it out.

The power play I do worry about though...that was awful and unfortunately I wouldn't be surprised if this is an issue throughout the year.

Or the Pens. Did you see them handle the Flyers today? Malkin is in midseason form.

I think the Rangers will lose tomorrow, too. I'm not all doom-and-gloom just yet, but the Pens and Bruins look like they've been playing since October and the Rangers and Flyers look like someone woke them up this morning and made them play hungover.

Nice way of describing it.

Hope the Rangers come out swinging tomorrow. But I'm not putting money on it.

The Flyers looked decent after the first. Their loss looked like a lot of losses the Rangers had last year. Terrible first, fall down 2-0. Then fight and scrap to make it 2-1 and look like you're trying, but send a bunch of weak shots on net and flub a bunch of other opportunities. Like the Rangers of last year they only had a bad first period. They just couldn't come back from 2-0 down. The Rangers last year were RARELY ever outclassed for an entire game (much like the Flyers today weren't), like they were today. I can honestly think of a handful of regular season games I can think of. Montreal 4-0, (probably second one too in Montreal but I missed that game), St. Louis 4-1. A select few games. Anyway, my point is the Flyers, while they were bad compared to last year on offense, didn't embarrass themselves all game like we did.

We lost last year because the Devils got scoring from everywhere in their lineup. Right now, Kreider is the only guy playing in the bottom six who has a prayer to put the puck in the net. The third and fourth lines don't have to carry the offense, but they do need to score every so often.

So, did Hank make the save, or was the puck in?

I know what the ruling was, but what do you guys think?

I think we lost last year because the Devils controlled the puck so damn much they wore us out. every line was out there constantly with the puck.

It was their puck possession game that beat us, not their bottom lines. its not about who scores the goals, its about how the game was played. they dominated us for huge portions of that series.

Glove wasn't fully in the net and ref said no goal so it was the correct call.

Still looked like a goal to me, though.

Puck was over the line, but since the ref had ruled no goal and you couldn't see it cross the line, it was correctly ruled no goal. Over the line or not, Lundqvist looked terrific all game, could have been a lot worse. Rangers looked slow, like they didn't want to play a physical game like the Bruins, and I don't like the way the lines are structured.

Seriously? He was all over the place! The puck was drawn to him and he was taking the puck away from people seemingly at will.

Staalsy too. Really standout bad games from both of them. But, collectively, the team played like ****.

The bright spot was Lundqvist, as it usually is, and I personally believe Nash had a solid game as well. That was about it though.
