It’s pretty sad that as soon as the Rangers missed their few early chances (Stepan, Nash) and Henrique scored you knew the game was over. Have they battled back to take a lead all year? Toronto and that might be it.

8 min of PP in the first. 0-5 total. Unacceptable.

Hank and Gabby = time to wake up. Neither was “bad” but your best players need to be your best players.
.............and the Bolts.

Well, he can't do it to Stepan so, Boyle or Hags will do.

Dat multi button off to the bottom right... it's really not hard to use.

And some of these comments. I hate this nonsense as much from fellow Rangers fans as I do from Devils fans. Ugh.

I don't care if the team finishes 1st, 4th, or 8th: if you don't win it, it's all for naught.



Actually, during the regular season, both the Kings and Bruins had better power play units. Only Los Angeles was better than us on the PK by 1 place.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, 82 games are a better measure of a team than 4 rounds of best of 7. The first format just isn't exciting.

As for Vancouver, they got steamrolled by LA. Everyone did. Team got as hot as a team could get at precisely the right time. They barely made it into the playoffs before that.

And New Jersey , the team that got further than us? They were a single goal away from a first round exit. One unlucky bounce.

Don't ********, the playoffs are a crapshoot. You can play the odds and statistics all day, and we can forget that the almighty LA Kings nearly missed the playoffs altogether, but there's a reason they say anything can happen in the playoffs.

Ignoring that, what you're arguing makes zero sense. They didn't win it all, so abandon what worked well?

You know, it'd be neat if we could get the first goal for a change. I mean how often have we done this? Twice? Bruins and Flyers?

Lundqvist needs to play better. He's been below average all season. Three wins in eight games. He's given up the first goal of the game in every loss this season, some too early into a game.

People can yap and moan about the individual players, but this team lives and dies with Lundqvist. The skill the Rangers have on paper doesnt match the coach's strategy, so naturally the offense suffers. If the team concept is collapse, dump and chase and block shots, then the goalie is the guy on top of the totem pole.

It happens. I'm not too concerened except that it's a short season. This team was winning the Cup after 7-1 in 2010 and they didnt even make the playoffs.

The schedule has also been abnormally tough because the league stacked prime matchups early on to develop interest.

Seven games combined against the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th best records in the EC last season. Those are the teams gunning for the Rangers. No surprise.

4-5-0 isnt too bad.

Keep Miller and Kreider up. Let them run loose.

I turned the game off half way through the 2nd. Glad I was able to enjoy the rest of my evening without torturing myself. I honestly don't believe this team is worth my time anymore.

The Rangers had a game last night? Look like Kitchiner. Oh, wait, I bet their PP would have scored a goal.

Ohh nooo... hahaha, i read it in my school library and was laughing my ass off, and everyone was looking at me, and then I realized that I looked like a dick because there is a mute student using sign language on skype like right next to me and everyone thinks I'm laughing and making fun of him.

It's easy to point the finger at our top line not producing, and I agree that they have to be better. Richards while scoring isn't doing enough, Nash is the opposite doing a lot but not producing and Gaborik really is invisible for too many time.

But the real problem of this team currently is the bad play of most of the other players. Hagelin and Stepan were important pieces of last year's successful team but they are simply brutal this year. Of course missing Cally doesn't help and apart from Pyatt none of the other additions have done anything of note. Kreider and Miller looked good, so there is hope, but this team desperately needs more players stepping up.

Last night when the lines were broken up, our two big guns were wasted with Stepan as a center. He really needs to get back into form fast. Oh and of course a bug stop from Hank is needed. None of the goals were mainly his fault, but right now we need him at his best to win games.

I still think the issue is this team only has two guys who have capable shots. Kreider and gaborik. But gaborik spends half his time acting like a ninja hiding in a corner and Kreider doesn't get that many chances.

Honestly apart from them who is any sort of threat to score from more than a foot or two away?


That's the major cause of everything. Nobody wants to shoot because nobody has any confidence that they can. The rest of their game isn't great, but not shooting and being able to score on shots amplifies all the mistakes elsewhere.


If this team could score just one or two more a game everyone can relax and not play so tight.

Well they haven't this year. Nash seems to have given up on shooting and just does his power move to the net. Which is a great move, but he can't be a one trick pony.

Richards seems to have no confidence at all in his shot and looks for pretty passes all the time.

Staal might be the only guy willing to shoot from more than a foot away. At least it seemed that way against the devils.

Best part of the game - watching Kreider score and fatso lose his shutout. He was like "what the hell just happened" after that goal.

Would be easier to take if they'd put together some more wins, but yeah it wasn't horrible, just frustrating
