I thought so too. One of his better games, regardless of what the box score says.

Finally win a game and everyone is still rustled.

Even in victory, the Rangers lose.

This. Although certain individuals stepped up. Team is total incoherent. I mean the one goal we did score could have been disallowed in another game. Not to mention, Canes played poorly.

I think Torts has lost a good portion of the bench. Gaborik has completely given up(I guess he knows a trade is happening)...

I'll say it again, this team has too many systemic problems that will be righted in time for the playoffs. Torts is completely ineffectual at this point.

talk about this game.. not other stuff..please
Im not saying kreider was great but he he had some good games. injuries were a factor the bone chip and jaw injuries. He has worked down there for awhile and has been pretty unstoppable since he was sent down

Both goaltenders were pretty damn hot today.

I would wish people would give credit where the credit is due.

With the way they've been playing, is a 2-1 shootout win really something celebrate?

We were getting chances tonight because we opened it up. I'd like to keep that up but knowing Torts and his ADD I think that's too much to ask.

I didn't know you get more points from a 6-0 blowout than 2-1 SO?

Decent effort ending with 2 points. Almost got that elusive 2nd goal. One day. One day.

A wins a win and two points are two points. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction

Am I the only one who thought Richards played well tonight? Yeah he was stripped of the puck by Semin, but he was constantly generating offense for the first time in weeks.

I'd say so. Short season, avoids a 4 game losing streak etc.

Gotta start somewhere.

Hank
Richards
Miller
HM: Callahan, Stepan, Delly Z

The Good: Offense? Happening? What?
The Bad: Still can't finish. Powerplay makes me cry.
The Redden: McDonagh. Seriously, he's been dreadful the last 5 games or so. His poor play has been a big reason why they have trouble getting out of their own zone, because he used to be really important to that cause.

Made some great moves in the 3rd and OT.

Big win, hats off to Hank. He stole this one for us. Richards also looked more like himself tonight, and that's a good sign. Good thing we have Nash for shootouts, he's such a weapon

Yes, he was good tonight, lets hope it rolls into tomorrow.

I think he played a solid game. And Semin got the puck because he played really well that situation, he back checked way too well there. Good shots, playmaking, good passes.. Definitely better. Not brilliant by any means, but definitely better.

It's ok to have a win like this every once and awhile, but this team is still offensively challenged. Less than 1 goal a game over the past 4. They got lucky today. Talk about missing the big picture.

I agree. But I'm skeptical it's a sign of things to come. Sully was still giving credit to "the forecheck" when quality passing, and skating it into the zone was creating chances on the rush. So I'm not sure they even realize what they were doing.

Two points is two points, but the manner in which they were obtained is not encouraging.
