The second goal is on Staal. His shot gets blocked and he dives for the puck instead of getting back. Terrible, lazy play by Marc.

It's not about that. I worry about the construction of the team. Relying on Gaborik and Richards who are perimeter players just is not working for consistent offense.

Go ahead and jump off the ledge. I could use some affordable tickets.

My work in defending Boyle is complete. I must now move on to defending Richards.

Sadly, he gives me WAY less to work with than BB.

Or more like a terrible, lazy pass into Staal's feet by Richards that ruined a 4 on 2.

It's mind boggling how this team struggles to do simple things like controlling the puck that other teams do with regularity.

I'd wager it's safe to say that even without Nash, Rangers have players who are better than the Canadiens, and the fact that the Canadiens played last night and they truly are compromised of players who are smaller yet still dictated how the game was played..that means our head coach didn't have another game plan available for these players today; I think his soul took a shot upon learning that Nash wasn't playing today.

They keep talking about Nash. Wtf, Ottawa is missing 3 and are winning back to back games against Fatso and the Fish.

I feel like when we win, we win IN SPITE of Tortorella's coaching and system. Not because of him if that makes sense. I feel like he is holding back this team from accomplishing so much more with his garbage hockey. DUMP GRIND DUMP GRIND. I'm tired of this clown not using his head and making in game adjustments. Out with the old, in with the new. ASAP please.


Get Tortorella off this team. He already has his cup, get somebody in here who is actually HUNGRY. Someone who can utilize the team's talents...not some clown who collects Americans by the boatload to see them grind, and dump away. Tort's system- Throw out the talented Europeans, and insert grinding Americans/Canadians who play a dumb it down type of hockey. This game was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I am SICK AND TIRED of saying the same things over and over again. No adjustments whatsoever during the game. Just a blank stare from our head coach and empty, mindless pats on the back of people who aren't deserving of ice-time. Such a frustrating team, with the biggest clown of a tactician in John "Powerplay specialist turned dump it in specialist" Tortorella. Sorry but this isn't the first or the last game we will lose like this. We lack the fire, drive, emotion to compete. Look at Ottawa's inuries....look at ours...Scary, scary difference In PAYROLL. AND RESULTS. They are up 3-1 on the Islanders without 3 of their star players. We only have 1 star player out of the line up and we can't even score 2 goals, can't even intimidate a WEAK, TINY Habs team. They were laughing their ***** off with Price @ the end of the game for a reason.

Didn't mean to imply I thought that goal was on Kreider, because it wasn't.

Blame for that goal, IMHO, goes as follows.

1. Richards for gliding back into the play, he could have definitely made a difference.
2. Staal for stone hands.
3. Richards for the terrible pass to Staal in the first place.
4. Kreider. He was gliding too, but it's not his man (hence why he is last on this list)

They should make prison inmates watch a 3 hour highlight reel of the rangers power play. Crime rates will be at an all time low.

Unless Torts was telling Richards to direct the puck in his linemates skates or forcing Boyle to hit the post, this is not really a game I would pin on him. Only thing I disagree with is that Boyle's line got too much icetime, but I guess that's what happens with Nash out and Richards' line unable to complete a pass.

Nash's absence was definitely felt. The line combos didn't really work. And, I'd like to know just how many shots BOTH teams fanned on in the game.

To anyone *****ing and moaning about people tweeting to players. I say, grow up. These people are paid millions to perform and put forth a decent effort, and when they don't and they mail it in, its insulting to people who actually have to wake up every morning, work 8-10 hours or more just to simply bring home $2,000 every two weeks if they're lucky.

We have every right to say whatever we want to professional sports stars.

BB doesnt bother me so much because he is what he is. You cant really get much more out of him. His one good scoring year was a fluke, and we all shouldve known that. Richards was payed to be a difference maker on this team and this year has been complete and utter garbage. He gives the puck away constantly with his errant and lackadaisical passes to noone. I just dont get what the hell happened to him in one years time.

Bingo.

Also, what's the difference between a fan letting Richards have it on Garden ice and doing it online?

Nothing!

It may be a knee-jerk reaction, but I literally can NOT stand Richards. If I'm a NHL team I spend that type of money ONLY on a player who can be a difference maker every game. Ugly.
