And Gaborik was invisible? What? He was flying, looked VERY good, just didn't score.
totally agree. these guys just need to stay on a line consistently and they'll figure it out. it's getting better. it's a game of inches.

Gabby and Richards seem to be playing bit better but so far off from being a top line. Whoever plays on steps line will lead this team in goals no doubt. If cally and hags stay with step I think hags will lead this team in goals. Kinda scary, but Richards and gabby are dragging Nash down. Holding out hope that Richards and gaborik find their old selves cause it seems that these will be the lines for the foreseeable future.
For now will enjoy this victory over the debbies.

Felt great being there in person, Devils' fans were being sore losers, especially about the Lundqvist interference call. I guess Fatso's a choir boy in that department

Went with Gabby, to me, he was our best player tonight. Didn't score, but could have easily had 2 or 3 points tonight.

I voted the King but that dive... Oh god that's a tough one to watch. Soccer-esque. Can't defend that.

Otherwise, I'd say they have a long way to go offensively. Yeah they had some prime chances but its not even close to enough.

Gabby-Richards-Nash looked good tonight and Hags-Step-Cally is a good line so far. Why break those two up? Miller isn't going to be a goal scorer or premier set up man on this team, this year. He's doing well with Boyle and Pyatt in a grinder role. I like these lines for now.
They really didn't. They got pinned in defensively multiple times and looked soft on the puck. Richards just looks bad. Miller ought to get a shot centering some talent. He might start producing.

Stepan looks good with everyone. Nash should be playing with him.

35% Rangers fans I'd say. Fun game to be at.

We looked very good tonight for the most part, although sitting back on leads aggravates me. Florida next, should grab another 2.

PS you know you're a homer if you were ok with Stepan getting no high sticking penalty.
I was strangely comfortable with it.

As a sometimes-not-an-idiot, I realize that Stepan deserved a penalty there.

As a Rangers fan, I was happy he didn't get one.

Hey, refs make mistakes sometimes. It's much more pleasant when we're not the ones getting screwed by it.

I was actually thankful we didn't score on the Zajac penalty. Bad fan?

To be fair there were several missed calls on both teams. Over all I was fine with the officiating tonight.

Nope...I was hoping we wouldn't convert either. It was a brutal call...definitely didn't want a bogus PP goal to decide it.

Let's get real. Lundqvist absolutely stole this game.

I think Richards HAS been much better the last few games, but I think Gaborik is still invisible. He's been marginally better the last two games, but he still floats around, is softer than a marshmallow and looks like he couldn't care less.

Great to get back in the playoff race, but, while I like Miller's game, even with the mistakes, we are going nowhere with a thrid and fourth line that can't score into an empty net. Top lines get shut down in the playoffs, period.

Here"s the goalscored by tonight's 3rd and 4th lines this season;

Miller - 2 (in one game, and he's the guy I like)
Boyle - 2 (one of which hit him in the ass and went in)
Pyatt - 3 (no points practically in a month)
Haley - 0
Halpern - 0
Powe - 0
Asham (assuming he's back soon) - 1

Teams with good third and fourth lines win in the playoffs -it's why we lost to the Devils last year.

Kreider-Miller-Callahan

I don't even care what they do with the rest of the lines.
X1000

Too much deadweight in our bottom six...

I know it was luck...but I'd love to see a slow mo gif of his ridiculous shaft save on Kovalchuk. That was awesome.
