Hitting the post is basically finishing. You beat the goalie yet just miss the goal. You can't ask for much more than that. Not like the players can control physics. We don't have Pronger.

Well guess what, McDonaugh stayed on the ice and ultimately caused this loss. Sure hindsight, but what good is your top defensive pairing if they are gassed?

Oh, you know, we just need to play better. Ran into some bad luck, but you know, it happens. We just have to focus and play better next game.


Ryan, why couldn't you score?


Oh, you know they played well defensively. Holtby was great. We just couldn't score.



Ryan, can you talk about why you never get angry or frustrated


Just the way the puck rolls sometimes


That doesn't even make sense...

Oh, you know we just need to play better

Agreed. Torts will still be here next season. The earliest he gets fired would be after next season. For better or worse, Torts bought a lot of good will for their run last year. Personally, I think we're wasting Hank's prime with this idiot, but Sather and Dolan might not see it that way.

That's the thing... we can't generate effective consistent offense with this style our guys are playing now. Every day I clamor to let them open up the offense a little to get the guys open and gunning...not just standing around and not knowing who to pass to or else theyd get benched....

When did I say that? What the hell does it have to do with the post you quoted?

Lundqvist has amazing games like this, even in the playoffs. However, he has too many ****** games in the playoffs, more percentage-wise than in the regular season. I call him out when he ***** the bed like last game. Today he looked as good as I've ever seen him. Just amazing display. Amazing.

Rangers PP Rank under Torts:
08-09 - 29th
09-10 - 13th
10-11 - 18th
11-12 - 23rd
12-13 - 23rd

I think Torts and Sullivan getting blamed is fair. Team has never had a top 10 powerplay under his reign. Just awful coaching.

We have "the players" this year, too. Problem is Staal and Clowe are both out.

But they don't really matter, I guess.

Defensemen have all lost their brains. Forwards never had theirs. What do you expect.

McDonagh final shift 03:04.
He had been on for 02:03 when Torts decided it was good plan to keep him on the ice after the whistle

Anybody who follows the Knicks knows that Dolan is an idiot. Sather has been here forever and we are still dealing with this crap

The time we were in the top half in the power play we missed the playoffs.

That said, if we are to lose this series, the team needs to consider changing it's playing style. Having a great goalie is less important when you're a defensive and not offensive team.

Powerplay is why the Rangers lost hands down. 5-on-5 they weren't that bad, just no finish. But when you have a PP at the end of the game and in the beginning of overtime against the 27th ranked PK in the league - you need to score.

Same old story, special teams will let the team down and Lundqvist will do his best impression of the being a goaltending god only to come up short.

And the fact that our offense was completely incapable of getting the puck and helping get it out of the defensive zone wasn't a factor?

All I'm saying is you no matter what scenario took place, if the Caps scored, you guys are going to blame Torts (and I do not like Torts as a coach myself). Either McD was out too long and he should have taken him off or McD came off and we have the 2nd/3rd pairing out vs Ovechkin. He can't win.

And it's McDonagh.
