We've got grown men dropping schoolyard insults at professional athletes because they're mad.

But I need to grow up.

Boring and frustrating game.
No speed or effort from either team. Can't say anyone deserved that win.
Looked like Montreal just sat back and waited for defensive mistakes by the Rangers. Good road game by them I guess, but no fun to watch.
I feel bad for those who bought a ticket for this game.

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)
I don't have an issue with Staal's shot attempt. I don't know why he left his feet in the Offensive zone like that. Just not smart.

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.
I fully agree with this btw. I'm tired of this boring dump and chase style.

I though Staal got tripped.

Also thought a lot of Rangers were getting held up behind the play and getting interfered with off the puck, similar to a Devils system.

That said, still a lazy effort.

Haha can't say anything these days. You don't play this **** for this long without not being bombarded about it. It's the fact that he continues to go out there with 0 ****ing urgency and 0 improvement.

It's so unfair watching the Blackhawks. Toewes, Kane, Hossa play their part every single ****ing game. Meanwhile we have bums like Richards and Gaborik who might get lucky every other game at best.
I think it's more a case of player development, when was the last time they groomed an elite star over the last decade? They should be giving Kreider and Miller huge ice time whilst Beaver continues to sweet F all.

This. If Staal just keeps skating that's probably not a goal.

Or is there something I'm missing here? People are pissed that we lost. Havn't you ever been a die hard fan of a professional sports team before? Overreacting? Sure, but it's normal. Insulting people's IQ is ridiculous go somewhere else then if angry fans make you shake your head, because clearly you're in the wrong thread.

The best part is that we were like 7-3 in our last 10 going into tonight. Fans show up ready to boo. That's NY.

Clearly Montreal had a plan; to ice the puck whenever needed. We had no plan and since Richards never wins the draw to start the PP would it be a huge mistake to put Halpern out there to get possession instead of every PP lasting 1:40? Torts has his boys and they are playing like crap. Very frustrating game and the Canadiens made the Devils of the 90s look like the Oilers of the early 80s. BORING!!!

It was a ****** performance and I didn't watch the game past Montreal's 2nd goal, but up to that it was a ****tier Montreal performance. Both teams looked like they had ECHL offenses there.

Oh and why the **** was Nash out?

As a hab fan in peace I'd just like to say that Montreal was lucky to get out of that game. The Rangers kept them to the outside for pretty much all of the game.

Obviously the Rangers didn't play their best, Hagelin was dangerous. Gaborik was skating well. Boyle was smashing anything that moved. Lundqvist made some big saves.

Richards may not be playing well right now, but at least you didn't trade one of your top prospects to get him, then have to deal with him being useless at every facet of the game and then having to buy him out.

Richards will come around.

If I died and went to hell and all we did there was read HFNYR post-game threads after losses - I wouldn't be surprised.

Keep talking trash to Richards - I'm sure he doesn't realize he's struggling and a bunch of armchair coaches giving him the business is going to turn it around.

Not really. Obviously it would have been great if it was called an icing, but that goal should have never happened. I have no idea what McDonagh was doing there.
