Gabby is the only forward I even notice doing anything out there.
Uhhh lol wot? Aside from passing the puck OUT of the zone on the powerplay under zero pressure from anyone... he did what? One decent rush up ice? He's been standing around in the defensive zone. I just watched him sitting there and letting Stepan run all over the ice for him. He's done next to nothing in the offensive zone (who has?).
Sam is so senile he can't even call it like it is anymore. This Rangers team is getting their ****ing ass handed to them this afternoon and Sam and Joe are chatting away about 21 year old Beau Bennett and Crosby.
MSG broadcasters tend to get fired if they criticize the team.
Wow, what a terrible period. Can't believe I dragged my arse out of bed at 4am for this.
How are we only 1 goal down? Thank you goal-post.
There is no chemistry in this team right, the D are scrambling everywhere and the forwards are just a mess.
McD's hit was dangerous, the NHL will look at that for sure. If Girardi is going to take a roughing minor against Crosby he might as well do it properly and hit him.
Nash can't skate after blocking that shot. It's going to be a long morning...
Playing the Rangers equals Veteran level on NHL 12:
a) when on the rush, just go 2 on 2, make a nice cross-ice pass and you'll have one heck of a chance.
b) when in the zone, just try to keep the puck down low or behind the goal. 5 Rangers will come at you, you can pass to your dmen at the blue line, they'll have all year to shoot. Ideally, you have 2 guys in front of the net to deflect and make Hank look like an ass.
c) Neutral zone: Never mind. They won't get through anyway.
d) OMG, they're in your zone on the PP?!?!: Just wait for them to lose the zone themselves.
That said, only improvement possible here (at least I hope), LGR!
for all the Debbie Downers out there right now...last time I looked the game 1-0, the Rangers are ONLY down by 1 goal. It is not that bad. Come out with a strong 2nd period and Rangers can easily take this game over. This is not a special team they are playing, it is just another NHL team; every team has strengths and weakness, just as the Penguins do. I don't care who is on their roster, they are just another team! Go get em rangers!!!
