Good game overall. even being down 0-2 they outplayed the Leafs all night and finally the goals came
Del Zotto is being pretty awesome this year...he's not perfect but he looks like he's taking another step forward offensively and he's moving the puck with authority and reading the play really well in terms of when to jump up, etc. Torts is giving him a lot of icetime now and he's handling the right side pretty well. Still could clean things up defensively at times but he's been pretty solid, and I feel like that pairing is becoming the "offensive pairing" while McD and Girardi are the "defensive pairing"
Fierrero looked pretty good in the time he got, I think he stays up. Still woud like to see the lines rolled more but with the Rangers having to play from behind all game it makes sense
Nice to see the 3rd line get a goal and generally they all seemed to play pretty well
Lundqvist was solid, though he didn't have a lot of work. Not a lot he could do on those goals
Gaborik is lighting **** on fire. Nash is 1000x better than I expected him to be, what a talent he is. I feel blessed to have him on our team. Enough said. Richies best game so far, Staal played great minus being out of position on the 2nd goal. Our defense still needs to work on their positioning as its easy to see its not there yet. Hank is coming along. Lets hope this is the start of a beautiful thing.
Also I maybe in the minority on this one but the Gabby-Richards-Nash line should be broken up to spread out the offense on this team unless Hagelin steps up to be a true goal scorer. We cannot have Rupp on the as our 3rd line rw. It will sprwad things out and IMO create a more balanced attack. I think that line should only be used for pp situations and late in the game 3rd period down 1 goal moments.
