I'm just glad we don't have to play them again until potentially the playoffs. That team never gives up.

I really understand the frustrations and complaints, but this isn't the kind of thing that is going to happen often to this team. Boston is the one team you don't want to meet in the playoffs. But even if the Rangers do meet them, they can beat them. Think the Rangers will be a well-oiled machine come April and May.

I think the Rangers can beat Boston, but playing them in a long series can wear you down, they are very physical. But I'm not sold on Tukka Rask, nor do I think their defense is any great shakes, though before the playoffs start, we need to see what teams do about trading at the deadline. Boston has about 5 million in cap space after off-loading Tim Thomas.

You're definitely right. Now that I've calmed down I can admit I was being perhaps a little too harsh. There's some things to take out of this game, including the easy schedule coming up and the likely increased focus against the Isles. But either way it's not acceptable blowing a lead like that. I have faith it won't happen again though. I expect a pissed off team Thursday.

As a suffering native New Yorker Bostonite, I feel your pain. His "hearts of lions" rant was uncomfortable to listen to. In that video, even Brick looked like he didn't want to be next to Jumping Jack.

And now there isn't even Kathryn Tappen to make things more bearable.

We've won 6 of 8 and 3 straight. Fix the PP and Richards will be producing again.

Guess what certain individual is skating pretty well out there?

We match up well with them, play well in Boston and Lundqvist's record against them is scary good. I'd rather play the Bruins than the Penguins
even if Boston's scored 9 goals against Hank this year

Blowing a 3 goal lead definitely hurts. But bahston is the real deal and you can tell, but at least we got the 2 points. My hope is that next time the rangers have a 3 goal lead, they will know EXACTLY what to do to not blow it having been in the situation before.. then again who knows

Him mocking people who call him a homer is what sealed the deal. The idea is that he wouldn't react the same if the Rangers did what the Bruins did.

He's very good about his homerism. He credits the Rangers and their players. But he's also great at using words. Chara was battling Hagelin along the boards for like a second on one dump in and Edwards said that Chara was "throwing him around like a rag doll!" when Chara really was just pressed up against him. It's great strategy. He's a huge homer who at the same time is able to identify the other team's strengths.

The B's second goal was a hand pass. But whatever it is what it is, still get 2 points. Lucic should be suspended.

I've had meltdowns of epic proportions before. That's the thing, they're almost all heat of the moment. I guess the loss to the Flyers when half their team was missing was not one that calming down would help. However, when most Rangers fans calm down they'd take the win against a great team like the Bruins and run. 2-1 against them. Not too shabby.

I'm less impressed with the Penguins for the playoffs than the Bruins. Talk about a top-heavy team with a meh goalie, that's the Pens. We lost 6 in a row to them, now that the team is playing much tighter defense and has more speed, I think we'd make short work of the Penguins in the playoffs, not so the Bruins, even though we're the Bruins least favored match-up.

Rangers carried the play the entire game, and figured they had it in the bag.

Bruins were still hungry.

Happy to get the win, but that never should have gone that far.

Nash may have silky hands, but he scores with his feet and his skating. What he can do while keeping the puck is incredible.

Hank stopping 3 of 4 is big. No less that what you'd expect.


The captain comes through in the clutch with a great fake-shot/snipe. It's a shame SO goals don't count to stats, he could use some points for his play.

Ha, it's a funny time to talk about playing tighter defense, but I agree most of this game despite spending some time in our zone the team didn't allow the Bruins any chances. This was not a terrible defensive game, just a couple of minutes.

I truly believe we saw the 2 most talented teams in the east play tonight. The Pens a few amazingly great players, but too many meh players and their goalie is blah. That said there's not a team in the league that I want to play less. I'd prefer to play Chicago is they were in the east.

It would be interesting to see how the Rangers would look against the Pens later in the season. The Rangers have much more consistent tempo. They are also better getting the puck up ice. I think our bottom six and D is better than theirs. If we can dictate the tempo with the Pens, I think we could beat them handedly.

Bruins(also the Devils)are way different in the sense that they can forecheck just as well we can. Either one of those teams are a battle, especially getting the puck out of the zone.

The Rangers love to hard around in the Dzone and the wings let the puck move in hopes that the opposing Dmen will either:
a)not handle the puck well, and have the wing pressure up high.
b)Dman isn't covering far side, and the puck rolls out of the zone.

That stuff doesn't work against either the Devils or Bruins. Both teams can own the far side board. The Rangers need to get better puck support along the wall against those teams. They got to intercept those pucks, or either of those teams will make you pay.

Gaborik is one of the biggest culprits when we play those teams. He is always WAY too soft supporting the puck along the wall.

Stepan? He has been pretty solid most of the last few games.

Almost everyone is playing well right now, though. Looking more like the team effort from last season with a little bit more skill and speed. Defense still needs to work on their consitency, but for the most part, it's been a great run the the last 2 weeks. 6 out of 8 says it all.

The best (or worst?) thing about Edwards' homerism, which I really shouldn't care about but I have to, is the way he emphasized that the Rangers were technically 8th in the Eastern Conference. A quarter into the season...a couple of points out of 4th through 6th...he made sure to make a point of it.

Glad I don't have to listen to that fool the rest of the season.

Not that it will end this way, but if the season ended today, we'd be facing Boston as the 1-8. Since if we climb the standing but don't win the division, the best we can be seeded is fourth, there would be a good chance we'd meet the Pens in round one or two. I think we'll beat them easily. This isn't the same team that lost to them early, Crosby is fragile, and we have had trouble with speed team, but that will abate now that we've traded Rupp and demoted Boyle and added Powe, Kreider and Miller.

Steps has looked a lot better when paired with Hags and Nash the past two games. When that line was first getting going, he didn't look that great.

I'm still not going to judge one way or another. If that line can play well for like 3-4 more games, I will say he has turned a corner.

Everyone on these boards is killing Richards, but Gaborik looks more out of place on this team than anyone else, especially is a grinding game. He needs to step it up big time. He's also killing the power play.

Amazing, however, how the defense and bottom six have gone from liabilities to strengths almost overnight with the addition of Miller, Kreider, Powe and Gilroy instead of Bickel and Rupp.

He hasn't made a single mistake out there. He hasn't been on for a goal against. He is playing how your prototypical #6 guy should play. Quietly effective, not making any noise. Only played 4 mins.
He got manhandled a bit physically today.

Well, to be fair, Richards was a disaster tonight.

Gaborik was equally terrible.

I see we're now back to blaming Gaborik for things.

Hi Marian, 111 goals in 232 games?

I suppose if he ends the season with 20 goals I'll be seeing nothing but trade proposals all summer.
