Only one guy deserves to be a star in this game: That is Henrik Lundqvist.

The rest of the team can be shot out of a cannon. Ironically, the only forward who was playing with any confidence with the puck was Brian Boyle. But being Brian Boyle, he still can't do much of anything offensively.

Reports that the roof of the NVMC was erupted off by Ranger fans are flowing in

Great to get the 2 points, but this is no way to play the game.

Torts has got to go
Couldn't have said it better myself. Agreed on all points. I was telling my friend after the game the other night we will not win a cup as long as Torts is coaching this team. I love torts or maybe loved but at this time he isn't the right coach for this team anymore IMO.

The Poor Isles. Biggest game for the franchise in six years and they cant score a goal and lose to the Rangers.

Rangers have almost three days off but will probably get a tough effort from Philly.

It's Bob vs Lundqvist for the Vezina. Coming down to the wire.

Girardi from Brassard and Del Zotto.

Possibly the 3 worst players this game combine for the OT game winner. I'll take it.

1. Lundqvist
2. Post
3. Boyle
HM: Zuccs, Powe

Nail biter.

We really should have won in regulation, but I'll take it.

Hank deserved the SO.

At this point, I'm looking at the big picture, because this organization isn't a Cup contender, they're far from it, and without this goalie they're closer to a lottery team than a playoff bubble team.

The biggest thing about tonight is we also got a ROW. The fact that we won before the shootout is huge.

I can't imagine being mad after winning a game. Ya'll been asking Hank to steal a game for us and he stole one of the most important games of the season and posted his first shutout. Yes, we were lucky in the defensive zone but it's not like we had much luck in the offensive zone. Take these two points and run.

Sweden is a pretty beautiful country. The landscapes, the people, Lundqvist, the food, Lundqvist, the aura, Hagelin, Lundqvist, Lundqvist and Lundqvist.

sorry, not buying it.

Rangers playing so passive in their own zone allowed the Islanders to dominate territorally.

Swarmed all night because the Rangers allowed them to

I disagree that our D was solid.

I thought they played hot potato all night with the puck and were soft on the forwards.

I thought the whole team played like crap aside from Hank

Henrik looked like an excited kid skating out from the crease after the winning goal. He was probably ecstatic.

Wang is probably ecstatic about it. He knows that he would never get an outdoor game from the higher ups. Now, he can have 41.

Again, you use Sabre stats to prove a point while ignoring the ones that don't prove your point.

It isn't just this game, its the 41 games up to this point so far. Nothing is gonna change. Hank is just ramping his game up as usual at the right time while we are all still praying and hoping the rest of our team does as well. 45-50 mins played in our zone tonight? unacceptable.

And yet... not much got through in reality. 21 blocked shots...
