Outworked and deserve to be down 2. They are being outworked by the Devils PKers. They are angling the puck in their own zone like it is a grenade.

i really wonder sometimes if this team even practices, nobody can shoot the ****ing puck, nobody can handle passes or skate in traffic, i mean this teams focal point of the offense is dump it in, play the boards and somehow thats going to turn into a goal, i cant remember the last time i saw a guy playing the boards kick a puck out to the front of the net, or score with his back to the next and 3 sticks between his legs. ***** getting pathetic, sather goes out and gets powe and makes lineup changes looking for more offense and whatever how about hiring somebody to coach the ****ing powerplay its literally this teams biggest downfall, with the talent we have on the first like and puck movers in del zotto and mcdonagh on the backend this team should be able to score on the powerplay like a video game, teams with far less talent score far more often on the powerplay because they have coaches that know what the **** their teaching.

It seems like all we do on the pp is dump and chase. Obviously that doesn't work! Also, it looks like a group of strangers playing together no matter who's on the ice. Pathetic.

Or the team needs to create momentum on the power play even if they don't score. They don't do anything that's positive. That flash of Kreider, Miller and Staal was the best thing of that period.

Misread the play behind the net on the first goal, and on the second goal you can't fault him, but you need to make him a big save.

This is one of the worst starts to a season he has had in his career. They need better goaltending out of him to start to climb the standings.
Yep.

Someone should tell the Rangers that lose one - win one - lose one isn't a great way to make the playoffs. 2-0 lead should be all the devils need, Rangers just aren't good enough. Game over.

If they could get a quick one to start the 2nd, I'd be happy. Just to shut those ****ers up....

This looks like a pre-lockout Rangers team

It's carrying over to even strength. You can see their body language. Also, for some reason they are dumping the puck in when there is a short pass to be made to a forward that can carry the puck in. This is all coaching. These players are playing in a very rigid system and they are scared ****less.

Incredible is a word you used to describe Miller? He missed a shot, fell on his head and looks tentative to say the least. He got better as it went along, but his skating wasn't impressive and he looks like it is his first game. Kreider at least is skating well.

When will this clown Torts hire a PP coach, how many games have been lost and years have gone by without this problem being addressed. Amazing Torts, Sather gets you any and every toy possible and you still can't hire a coach to fix the teams biggest flaw.

They need to score in the first 5 minutes of the second and shift the momentum or it's going to be rough coming back.

As frustrating as the power play is, the goals they gave up were worse. A careless giveaway by Del Zotto in front of a bunch of stiff white shirts, and Nash turning circles in front of the net with nobody around him trying to find a puck.

The PP was bad last year - it's a problem, but the difference between this team and last year's team are the goals that they just let in.

As soon as the puck bounced off of Steps stick early in the first powerplay I said to my dog.. Its gonna be one of those nights buddy.

Then Nash knocking the net off as the puck slides in?

On a side note. JT looks like a keeper. He outplayed Richards, and Step in his first NHL period.

Incredibly sloppy and inconsistent so far. One trip to the CFs and now they think they just have to show up.

They don't make plays. If they don't dump and chase, they just enter the zone and make a quick pass to the wing and they're caught. They don't create anything.

Who's it up to to hire a PP coach? Torts or Sather?

Let me see if I'm doing it right....

Lundqvist sucks. OMG OVER THE SHOULDER AGAIN...man, can't make the big save anymore. Maybe Rangers can trade for a goaltender, I hear Vancouver has a spare one.

Rangers were simply unlucky on the powerplay though. I mean, one legit scoring chance in eight minutes and it didn't go in! What are the odds on that man.

At the game on line for the bathroom, more embarrassing flower play. The devils shorthanded have a much higher chance of scoring.

Right now yes. Yes Hank is better but its obvious the lockout screwed him up. Biron looks more ready than hank right now

The team sure as hell plays better in front of Biron than they do in front of Hank.

The PP is absolutely the most damning and frustrating thing about this team. It literally needs to be torn down, dragged out, burned, buried and rebuilt from the bottom up.

As for MDZ... I constantly can't stand him. I called him brainless earlier in the season and took heat because he was 'playing like our best d-man'. I honestly think MDZ is a disaster waiting to happen in most games and it's just a matter of whether it will or not. He has all the skill in the world and literal bricks between his ears.
Yes, you deserved to get criticized because you were wrong. One bad period ALL SEASON for MDZ and he's a disaster waiting to happen? Come on.
