The Pope is retiring on Thursday. Word on the Vatican grapevine is that there will be a special blessing for NYR.

Does that mean Biron plays goal?

He's one of the few guys on the team that's showing up for a full 60 minutes - the last thing we need is for him to be all shagged out.

We might miss out on a top 5 pick, the way this season is going.

Plus the lottery...

Entertainment value wise this was the best game the Rangers have played in like 2 weeks.

I just got back from the game and I don't know what to say.

Lundqvist cost the team the game. Simple as that. I know he had no chance on the three first goals, but the team tried to get back into the game. No goalie who thinks they're elite should allow that goal. I know there are a lot of Lundqvist defenders here and you were probably defending him the entire game on the GDT, but there shouldn't be a single person defending him here. He cost the team the game.

There were at least three fights in the crowd, including one between an entire group of Ranger fans and a Devil fan, of all people. He looked like he wanted to get beat up.

Would you really expect anything less from this franchise?

Lol no.

We need Nash and McD to get back, though. Nash is the only forward who creates any offense. And we all know how good McD is.

I did. The week isn't over. But yes, for now I am wrong.

To be fair, sorry for being unable to predict such an anomaly: Lundqvist had a .875 sv%. I'm pretty sure Hank himself knows he must and can be better. For this game, I think he is responsible. People are going to be blame Richards once again, but I think he had a better game than the (disappointing) usual. I don't care how many goals we score, we used to be defensively tight.

Since all the negatives have been told and retold, I'll just that I really like Pyatt. If he gets 3 shots and 18/19 solids minute per game I'm going to be overjoyed. For all the 'we miss Dubi/Feds/AA/Prust', I'd rather have Powe/Pyatt/Halpern gel as second string player and developing Kreider/Mashinter/Miller and I'm starting to believe that this will have better long term consequences.

Last half of the third was fun, they looked like they did not know what they were going to do next...catch my drift, that is why it was fun to watch.

I will be very upset if we miss out on a 3-8 overall pick. I will not even say what I will do if we miss out on a 1-2 overall pick.

Lundqvist has a bad game and claim he is having a horrible year. Pure genius.

Viewed through the prism of missing many key (irreplaceable?) players, I thought tonight was fairly encouraging, PP aside. It's gotten to the point where not only is it inept, it ruins any flow we've developed. I honestly believe, but for the late 3rd penalty, we tie it at 4. As simple as it sounds, maybe we just stick with the lines and defensive pairings regardless of the PP. at least then there'd be continuity.

Columbus can't get the #1 pick with their own pick might as well use ours.

This is the happiest I've been in a Rangers loss all year. (the 2nd period was garbage) We showed some heart near the end of the game. Hopefully they can channel this for the rest of the season. Callahan played like a true captain.

Get Nash back, get McD back, get MDZ back. Put Boyle back on the bench, forget Bickel.

I have to agree. The Rangers did show a lot more hustle throughout most of the game. Still a lot of passengers on the team, but definitely more skating and urgency than what we saw on the road trip.

Love your optimism, but the reality is that we were picked as favorites for the Cup, and the reality is that even with Nash, McD back ,and maybe if MDZ can play like he did earlier in the season, we're not as good as Boston, Pitt, Chicago and several other teams. We have far too many non-NHLers on the roster, and Miller and Kreider belong in Hartford learning the game (I like both as prospects, but Miller seems unused to the pace of the game even though he shows some good instincts, and Kreider needs to get back to what we saw in the playoffs last year, and he ain't goin' to do it playing with Brandon Mashinter and /or Boyle).

I really think we should begin to look to next year. And I agree we need to buy out Richards in the off season, and maybe trade Gaborik at the deadline for prospects/picks. And trade Bickel, Boyle and a 5th for nobody. It would be an improvement.

I agree with most of this. The prospects belong in Hartford. A cup this year is unrealistic but all we have to do is make the playoffs and see what happens.

Torts benching of Kreider in a one goal for entire period is just stupid.
Hank sucked tonight again every rebound was back into the slot not excuse for that..
Boyle is a wastes not seen since Willie Huber
Gabby and Richard flat out awful all night
Powe is a wrecking ball but he has Roberto Duran hands

The good
Callahan was awesome
Girardi is warrior like no other guy is a star
