Let's leave the ankle breaking and inside out passes to the guys who can actually do it.
Seriously. Acting like Johnny Malkin out there.

Rangers desperately need an intimidating defenseman who knows how to play back there. Sauer was that guy, it's a such shame. At this point I'd be willing to bring in McI. How has he been doing in HFD?

Agreed. Have played goal since I was 5. Its a change up, but thrown 1/4 of the way from the mound. Just have to hope your in the right position and get time to react.

I saw this coming, one week (less to be honest) of training. Most of our big players weren't playing in Europe, big acquisition so we are not gelling yet. Top it off with two great teams (say what you will, we are playing good teams here) to start the year.

Someone please hide the panic button. Please here seem to be beating the crap out of it that past 24+ hours.

agreed. he sits in his net which allows him to make the spectacular save, but then gets beat on weak deflections

No. Stop trying to further your agenda. MDZ is more than capable. When will you realize how wrong you are?

It's all because we lost our first game after an emotional season last year, a huge offseason trade, a painful lockout, AND massive expectations... A loss in Rangerland will do that, I guess.

bickel will probably be replaced for eminger in a few games. i have no problems with boyle (yet) but i think you should let kreider play on the first line and put hagelin on the third

Alright. Get a goal on that PP, tighten up defensively. Still lots of time left.

Team is definitely missing Johnny Malkin. He can really control the puck well and prevent opposing teams from starting up there offense.

Unfortunate breaks, but we are losing this one because Lundqvist has been shakey (and I hate saying anything against him, my favorite player). But, he needs to find his game tonight. Vokoun outplayed him. That is the difference. Our best period so far. Should be 1 to 1 heading into the second.

Pyatt has definitely been the best player on the 3rd line. He's driving to the net and getting involved. Kreider needs to follow suit. Boyle looks better than he did last night but I wouldn't go as far to say that he's playing "good."

I really hope Stepan starts to find more consistency in his game. It's only game 2 so I'm not too concerned yet but this is a pretty important year for him - he has a much more pronounced role this year, especially with Dubi and Arty gone.

Oh boy.
