Kuba sucks. Therefore, we will make him look like Ryan Suter tonight. Clemmenson sucks, therefore we will make him look like Lundqvist.

I think I'm going to try to count how many times we dump it in and how many times we carry the puck over the blueline.

Rangers never win "easy", lucky to scratch out a 2-1 win in a SO... But I love the confidence some of you have and hope I'm wrong...

Kids, let's sit down and play the Scott Clemmensen game!

Scott Clemmensen's career stats @ MSG: 4 GP (3 starts) 1-0-2, 2.02 GAA, .943sv%

Scott Clemmensen's career vs NYR: 12 GP (9 starts) 3-4-2, 2.75 GAA, .910sv%

Dude is pretty strong @ MSG... But who isn't?

Should be an easy win here. So, Panthers win 3-0?

I went to the last one against the Panthers and it was an atrocity. Half tempted to go again, because how bad can it be, right?

Please show us something to be proud of for once.

If they don't win this game they don't deserve to make the playoffs. Let some team who's actually going to fight for the spot take it.

Their PK was pretty bad too, easy entry into the zone. I say Rags win 3-1.
Rangers have trouble getting into the zone. i hope the Rangers dont give up a shorthanded goal....

im gonna say 4-3 Rangers win in Shootout :

Almost a guarantee that they will come out flat, play flat for 2 periods, and wake up in the last 10 minutes of the 3rd when they're down 4-1. Hell, they may even be able to muster a PP goal in those last 10 minutes.

This concept of any team "deserving" to be in the playoffs is silly. As if the universe owes anyone anything. If they get in the POs, they're in. They won't need to "deserve" anything because they actually earned the spot despite how sloppily they earned it, and regardless if it's the 8th seed or whatever. They'll have made it, and they'll need to find their game yesterday if they want to do anything worthwhile.

Anyway..I haven't been able to watch games lately, has Clowe been paired with Callahan at all? I feel that would make a strong line.

A must win situation against one of the worst teams in the league?

My thoughts exactly.

Expectations for this game are extremely low.

I sure hope not, but being a Rangers fan this is how we are all programmed to think.


I'll be at the game, I'm hoping they come out flying and finally show some urgency. 6 games left in the season and tied for the last playoff spot. Come out and play like that!

Maybe you should debug your code.

But seriously, if the Rangers lose tonight, we're in serious jeopardy of losing our spot.

The problem IS the coaching staff, and last night couldn't have made it any clearer. John G's between the benches interview made me want to punch Sully in the throat. "GLORIOUS scoring chances, not finishing, dominating time on attack."

********. We made Markstrom look like a STAR because we fed him 45 of the weakest shots imaginable. We made the Florida D look like GODS because they figured out our "system" and totally shut us down. You can look at the stats and see that we played a really good game and just ran into a hot goalie, but that isn't it at all.

You know what I saw? Endless cycling down low. Every single time the puck would get to the point, it's right back down into the corners. I wanted to tear my ****in hair out. THAT was our whole offense. What happened to just getting pucks on net? What about guys out in front? How many times did the puck trickle out in front of the line, waiting for someone who wasn't there to tip it in?

Torts has this system based on grinding it out and yet fails to implement one of the fundamentals of garbage hockey. He's delusional. Not to mention, this just isn't a grind it out team anymore. We have a superstar first line, a proven stud in Nash, guys who have played well above expectations in Hagelin, Stepan, Callahan, maybe even Kreider if he's used properly. All guys who can score. McD's a competent puck handler, DZ plays with heart. There are your offensive options. You're telling me we can't score more than ONE goal against the worst defense in the league with that lineup? Who's fault is that?

Nobody is playing for Torts anymore, you can see it on the ice. Gabby and Richie have pretty much given up. And honestly, we shot ourselves in the foot. It's way too late in the season to start developing a new system, and make no mistake, that's what we need.

We need a system that fits around and actually BENEFITS the talent of offensively gifted guys like Nash, who last night was reduced to a puck-fumbling, board-crashing nobody, instead of shoehorn them into it. We as a team don't miss guys like Prust, Artie, and Dubi because they were great players, we miss them because they bought into everything Torts was trying to do. This year, the team doesn't, because that isn't the team we are anymore. Before thinking about any trades, we need to think about what this team could do under a coach that promotes and values their creativity. We have nothing to lose at this point.

I'd love for that coach to be Torts, because I don't know who else is out there, but he's just too damn stubborn to change anything. He needs to feel the heat, and get pressured into trying out a new way of playing. The old one's tired and obsolete. It isn't what this year's team is all about. We had a 50 win team based on that, but we also had a significantly deeper bottom 6, which we gave up to get Nash. Why? Because he's a star, he's a catalyst, he's just a gifted player who can control the puck like nobody else and throw his body around. Instead of working around him and coming up with ways to get him to his most productive, we try and fail to do the same exact thing we did last year, with half the talent.

Last night's game, this team's disappointment and downright boring play, is on him. Completely. He needs to face the fact and fix his ****, or go. It's that simple.

I'm ashamed as a fan to say this all still applies. It's not about just "finding a way to win" anymore, getting 2 points. I'm tired of hearing that **** out of Torts' mouth. We need to win. We need to dominate.

If that doesn't happen, we don't deserve a playoff spot. I'd gladly give it to Winnipeg with the hope that some real change in the way we play is coming next year. Truthfully, I'd hate to (by some miracle) make a good postseason run in spite of how ****** we are and be stuck with this for another season. It would be the cruelest practical joke in human history.

If we lose, either the Flyers come within 3 pts or the Devils within 4 pts.

Assuming neither their game or our game doesn't go into OT.
