What a great game thus far. Let's hope we can keep the energy going!
i think the rangers just play better when it's a hockey game without all the b-s after the whistle and tough-guy tactics. the devils, and the canes yesterday, seem to play pretty clean, straight-up games. the rangers can hang in games like these. it's the bostons and pens and flyers that play ...chippy...who give the rangers fits.
I like the chances we're getting but they're giving up too much, the d has been real aggressive standing them up but all it takes is a chip or bounce and it's bad news. They need to be more responsible in their own end.
Plus we have the D and goalie to take the chances and come out ahead often enough. Opening up the offense a bit would be a dream come true. Could use a bit better offensive depth though. Pyatt and Boyle really aren't top nine contributors.
I never knew much about Pyatt before his arrival, thought he could do more after seeing him get his first goal earlier but nothing. I wonder what he believes his role to be, whether he is capable of offense (at least more than zero).
