We were so bad tonight I thought...Lacked any offensive consistency as usual and we had no aggressiveness at times. Too many penalties consistenly killed any rhythm and allowed them to score their first goal. We then proceeded to allow 2 more bad goals.

We need Staal and Clowe for this series. Girardi cant do it all alone.

MDZ was not good...Just annoyed, we need to rebound and win the next one

And?

That's not his job.

Caps definitely weren't at their best tonight. Too many slow, purposeless passes that resulted in turnovers. Also they had a real hard time behind their own goal line tonight.

At the same time, the Rangers didn't look at the top of their game either. Especially Lundqvist.

The good:

Rangers 2nd and 3rd periods.. Really though, we were the better team.

The bad:
- The ref *literally* costing us the game since the bs call on Asham was capitalized on for 1-1. Without it the game would have been completely different.
- Hank on 3-1
- The shooting in general.


If you look away from the fact that we let in 3 after a series of extremely unfortunate events, we didn't play a bad hockeygame. If we ignore the fact that hitting the goal seems mysteriously challenging all of a sudden.

Also Nash 8 shots.. would have been dandy if he had gotten at least one in

If today is anything to go by the series is far from over and a win at the garden is more than likely

Anyway. Horrible.
Is it even possible to make an in-game camera that's small enough not to impede the view of the net (for shooters) yet strong enough to handle a direct hit from a puck travelling at 125 miles an hour?

Not to mention all of our strong scoring chances.

TWO.

Hagelin on a breakaway, Hagelin's shot off the crossbar.
Nash and Cally in front of the net on the PP. Moore's reviewed shot. Nash just missing the top corner. Nash with stickhandling in front of the net. Stepan's 3rd attempt after two blocks.

There were plenty. I didn't even list them all.

I said I didn't think the goals the Caps scored were soft on Lundqvist's part. Holtby just saved those types of chances and Lundqvist didn't on two occasions. Thus, Holtby outplayed him.

I miss Staal so bad. Still wearing his jersey to every game (and I have many others)

I'm a bit saddened how underrated he is by some people here

A rant.

FWIW the Asham penalty was ********. It led to Washington's first goal. Sometimes I find our broadcasting team to be very annoying. Instead of out and out saying that the referee making that call ****ed up big time they make excuses for him--in this case comparing the Asham call to the boarding call given to Beagle in the first period. The reason Beagle got called was for hitting someone after an icing--something frowned on by the league for good reason--injuries from such plays--particularly concussions. There was no comparison and it was a **** call.

Which brings me to the Moore non-goal. Apparently no one in Toronto reviewing maybe goals has ever taken a physics course. The puck was in Holtby's glove. Holtby's entire glove was in the net. Sam and Joe arguing that there was no definitive evidence that the puck crossed the line makes them look like a couple yokels for the second time tonight. Whatever the league thinks the call defies science and apparently one can conclude that Micheletti for one at the U. of Minnesota never took a physics course either. I wonder what Sam's excuse is.

Both of them shilling for the league.

I still think Nash might be injured, and not letting on, like Gaborik last season in the playoffs. There's just something missing from Nash's game, no confidence.

If you can't make a pass or give off a quality shot, you shouldn't be playing professional hockey, and his job is to knock people down on their *****, not the other way around.

Pretty much my exact thoughts on this topic. I'm generally pretty pessimistic when it comes to my sports teams, but I didn't see anything this game that indicates that the Rangers can't win this series.

According to NHL Situation Room blog, replay showed puck never completely crossed goal line. Was not called inconclusive.
It wasn't a goal.

I don't mind losing if the referees didn't have to play such a hand in it. Do they rotate the refs every game?

Shocking, another two minute lapse. This looked like the the rangers pre-trade.

Now, I didn't get to watch the game, just listen, but I assume he was still being use on the powerplay to... you know, play offense.

That's obviously not his fault, but if Torts is being stupid, Girardi has to recognize that and tell Tortorella to take him off the powerplay

Ha I think going so long without him has lead a lot of us to realize how much he's needed on our blue line.

It doesn't help that we couldn't score one real goal. We get a lucky bounce, grab a quick 1-0 lead and continue to play like trash.
This is taking "Lundqvist can do no wrong it's all the team" matra to a whole new level. The Rangers probably had fewer quality shots, but they had good chances too. Honestly if Holtby faced no shots he would have outplayed Hank. I don't care how many bad shots we had on him. I'm sorry "the best goalie in the NHL" doesn't get to give up GARBAGE goals because he did the unthinkable and made some nice saves when the team played well. This wasn't ****ing Biron in net or some rookie. It's like saying "I bought you jewelry yesterday, so it's ok if I cheat on you today". No it's not ok, I don't care how many good saves he made. Most saves weren't even that ridiculously good, lots of shots from bad angles.

Can we stop complaining about the refs?

If this team was good enough it could have overcome it.

One game isn't indicative of anything, good or bad. If we won, I doubt so many people would be taking a one game sample as proof of how we were going all the way. A lot of this board loves to hate the Rangers.
