Have to give this game 110%. We need to score at least 3 goals in this game.
I've got a good feeling the Capitals pot 3 or 4 tonight. They're on fire. Ovechkin is playing his best hockey in a long time. If the Rangers can't put together a responsible defensive game, and put at least three in the net, this one will be lost.
Exactly, and it's not even just that but they're not even focusing on their other aspects. There should be absolutely no reason they can't make good crisp passes to other team mates. I can't count how many times this season both have just dumped the bed entering the zone and completely missed with their pass to an open team mate. Like no pressure they just pass 5 feet behind the guy for no reason.
These are supposed to be your leaders and they're just not stepping up at all. No feeling of responsibility for the salaries they make and the obligations that are implied with that type of salary. So many high paid players act like this.
The team possesses the necessary skills required they just need to build some confidence. I'm sure the fans and "experts" weren't the only ones who had the Rangers pegged as favorites to win it all this year. They were probably coming out like they were going to be unstoppable and quickly realized that they weren't prepared. Since then it seems to have been a constant struggle to gain some confidence and hold on to it longer than a couple of games. I still think it's possible but only time will tell.
They should look at it this way: Tonight is the first game of the rest of the season. Start anew and just focus on working as a team and winning period by period.
I don't know what you're talking about. Putting him with two snipers (Boyle and Pyatt) should have yielded a lot more positive results. Not every rookie is lucky enough to be paired with these two offensive dynamos.
I stand totally corrected. He should have 50 points right now. Since he can't perform with those studs, I say demote him and put him on a line with Richards or Gabs until he can get his act together.
