I didn't imply they'd fight. I was referring to Lucic taking liberties on our players, as he's done in the past.

I'd consider if the Isles lost tonight in regulation so that we're locked into 7th at the worst. If they get a point though, you gotta go with Hank.

If the isles lose tonight then we should be losing intentionally on saturday.

Hey, who am I to disgree with a Ranger fan about the Rangers. If you want Boston, go for it and hopefully Torts play's Hank tomorrow.

Instead it's non existent. Teams know this. They kill penalties aggressively, which makes us lose confidence. That also take liberties at ES because they know we CAN'T make them pay.
How is this different from last year? I can give you last year's PK as a strength that we are missing this year but instead our 3rd pair D now is better compared to last year's (especially when Staal returns)

Not lose intentionally, but definitely should rest some of big guys. Didn't we play Pittsburgh once the top seeds were all set and Stepan ending up getting knee-on-knee'd by Orpik? We don't need another situation like that heading into the playoffs. Call up all our AHL guys and let them get some experience against the Devils lol. Not gonna happen, I know.

People seem to forget we are 4th in the league with goals against. That does count for something

Knocking off Pitt would be indescribably glorious. They are the only team that makes me actively cheer for the other Atlantic Division teams.

Kind of amazing considering Hank and the defense are not as good as last year.

Considering I missed both games in Raleigh this year, I didn't find it right to put myself in the group of fans who were there.

Goals only matter in the regular season. Playoffs are all about the fights.
