We were in total control of that game and quite frankly it was bad luck that they tied the game. I honestly do not remember the Rangers ever blowing a 2 goal lead in the final 2 minutes like that during my time as a fan dating back to 98 or so. Maybe I'm forgetting though.
Got the 2 points move on
Yeah, I agree. It truly was a lot of bad luck, and honestly, I can't believe they won. I give them credit for keeping their composure and coming out of this with a win.
SEEN YOUR VIDEO!
Yeah, I dunno, the Rangers didn't play a good last 10 minutes but those two late goals were more "flukes". The Bruins got good bounces on both of them and that doesn't usually happen multiple times in a row...
Rangers got too careless with the puck and stuff after the Bruins first goal and didn't really do a good job maintaining possession, but at least they got 2 points out of the whole deal...I'll take it, and it probably gives Torts a good example to yell at them about being tougher at the end of games
I absolutely blame the players on the ice for making that a much harder game than it needed to be... but I don't get why people keep doing things like posting "Oh man, Hank's gettin' a shutout!!!" or posting a PGT BEFORE the game is over... don't test the hockey gods man, don't test them.
Pretty good game from this team other than about 5 minutes in the 2nd period and 12 minutes in the 3rd... A win may be a win, but giving Boston a free point could come back and bite them in the ass at the end of the season if they're jockeying for a top playoff spot. Whoever pointed out the players not looking too excited despite the win going into the dressing room -- good, hope Torts rips them a new one. No excuse for having a three goal lead in the third, and giving it away in the last 2 minutes.
I want Richards bought out, he is just brutal. No energy, no skill. Horrible decision making...what the ****?
We have this season and next season to evaluate Richards. If we start to notice any sort of decline, then buying him out could be a possibility. Will see if it gets to that point, still far too early to make decisions on that.
Hank had an awful 3rd imo. but was amazing the first two periods.
Not what I saw. They outshot us 40-29 in the game, he had no chance on the first goal, second goal was blown coverage in front of the net, and the third goal was a broken pass that went off of someone's skates right to Marchand. It is what it is. He clearly outplayed Rask and was one of the only reason's we even made it to OT.
Anyone who thought we outplayed Boston and actually deserved that 3-0 is delusional. Rask literally gift wrapped 2 goals for us. The Stepan one wasn't terrible, but it's one he should have had. And it doesn't get any worse than the goal Stralman gave up.
Bruins got a point out of it, and honestly, they probably deserved it.
Pretty frustrating that we keep giving away points to the Bruins. We blew 2 leads against them and pretty much gave them 2 extra points in the standings. Just hold the leads guys, hold the leads. Ughhh
