Rewatch the first half of the second period.

We dictated play.

A few little differences and it could have been 2-0 to the Rangers very early in the 2nd which would have changed how the game looked
I'd agree with being in sync, there's probably some truth to that. Took the Isles a long enough time to get to that point though, haha.

If either team scores before that OT, the way the game was going to be played would have completely changed. I think both teams were pretty stingy in the middle of the ice and especially in front. I don't recall seeing too many free guys hanging around. If there were a goal or two for either side, I'd expect the game to have opened up a bit more.

Nash was pretty bad tonight, IMO.

He came out on fire in the first...and then proceeded to suck it up.

So much negativity after a big win.. sheesh.

I've seen this team get REALLY outplayed. Tonight wasn't great for sure, but it wasn't like we were slaughtered lol.
We were VERY outplayed in the second half of the game.

The Isles fans conveniently ignore the first half of the second and the even first. Some of our own posters like to forget that, too.

We controlled play up until the Tavares penalty, which was about 10 minutes into the period.

We play the Bruins and Devils like that lol. Both own us in puck possession but they never really do anything with it then we score on our one good opportunity. It's how we won a lot of games last year too. Bend don't break, weather the storm.. which is extremely frustrating to watch at times.

Like I said, I don't disagree that we were outplayed, but from an overall perspective, this was actually a pretty standard Rangers game.

And this post is pretty good and truthful.

Pretty much. Sadly, our offense this year compared to last year is pretty significant.

I just re-watched it on MSG and thought the first period was pretty even. No one really did anything.

Also, Capuano looks like he rolls out of a beanbag chair with stale pizza stuck to him and then bathes himself with old coffee filters.

I think it's our defense right now that is the problem. They're scrambling a lot and not getting the puck out of the zone (without taking icings) as well. I think once the D stabilizes it will help our transition game leading to a more effective offense. We need Staal back :\ Don't want to rush him or anything but it's clear we miss his presence a lot more this year than last year.

I would agree. But unlike last year, the Rangers are just not a mentally sharp squad. Too many inexcusable plays. Too many players not willing or unable to get the job done on second effort and third effort. This team is getting reallllllly hard to watch and enjoy. They really didn't deserve to win this game. Only Hank did.

Aside from the Rangers PP opportunity the chances are pretty even, with a 1 or 2 chance advantage for the Rangers. The Rangers spend a lot of that time skating the length of the ice. I just rewatched the whole thing.

I know it is, Henrik is able to win these games. I realize he's a part of the team, but I'm just curious how many games you or any other fans think the Rangers would win without him.

Hank got discredited a bit last season because of how excellent the D was. Well, it's been more or less pretty crappy this season and He's still holding that fort.

Getting Staal and Dorsett back should hopefully offer a significant push come PO time.

Rangers looked slow, tired but had a great will to succeed. A win is a win.

Can't imagine the team prevailing in a series... let alone 4... just calling it like I see it.

Probably as much as the Devils are winning right now without their best player lol. Well, maybe more we do have Stepan and Nash having great seasons.

It's too hard to answer. If we didn't have Hank, we'd (most likely) play a different style of hockey. We'd probably also have a better bottom pairing or depth forwards due to the difference in goalie salary which affect how the team plays

He looks like he's straight out of the 80's, I honestly can't stand the guy at all. I think the team is winning in spite of the fact that he's a horrible coach.
