Then its a goal. But if it hits the post and doesnt go in, then its nothing but a missed shot. This argument has come up amongst many hockey conversations with friends of mine. You could just as easily say that it only hit the post because the goalie gave you nothing else to shoot for.

Doesnt mean a damn thing unless it goes in. In basketball if you blow by a defender and miss a layup its the same thing. You have to score

A team that can only muster 1 goal in two playoff games does not deserve to advance in the post-season.

Please. You ring off a shot off of a goalie's head who is standing-up and that's considered a SOG.

They put plenty of muffin shots to Holtby's chest.

Back at MSG - a whole new ball of wax.

Bummer of an ending today, but all the more reason to take the next one.

On a side note, Backstrom is sooooooooo overrated. That guy doesn't scare me one bit in this series. And to think Caps fans were trying to justify him being as good as Toews in the playoff discussion thread is an absolute joke. Shows the average brain size of Caps fans.

So if they come back and win games 3,4,6,7 they don't deserve to win because they didn't score more than 1 goal in the first two games?

Yea me too. You see the Caps and they are so good at passing and catching the puck along the boards that in my head it seems like their sticks are bigger.

There are people on this site that don't have Kershaw on ignore? Weird. Although he's right if we're comparing PPs only. These teams are pretty even everywhere else.

Home line change advantage helps. However... they have to regroup, like seriously regroup... and develop a style that works (and NO, NOT block shots all day long and dump and chase... ok... block shots but quit the dumping )

And take it in with speed.... They bunch up and slow down lots in the O zone.

Okay, but I'm not sure on the relevance.

For **** sake. The rangers got one of the weakest rosters in the playoffs. I mean u got Nash and 15 third liners. U got one great Dman and he is injured. The rest of the Ds are just very average (or worse). And ofc an elite goalie. Torts got this group of players into the playoffs this year, last year and the year before that. There are so many strong teams in this League that dosent make the playoffs like Tampa Bay. Still everyone complains and whine when the rangers loose. Its like its Torts fault that Mcd made a retarded play. Yeah i know he is tired, but its the 4th/OT period. U dnt give the caps a pp in OT stupid. Gods everyones knows that, well not Mcd.

Torts is a good Coach. He has won the cup, he got a plan and he sticks to it (no matter what). Then u say that the pp suck blablablablabla buhu who cares. The rangers play defense first style of hockey (blocking shots, checking, work along the Boards etc) And it Works. We are in the playoffs, we dnt need a good pp as long as we play good defense.

Perhaps u want Joe Sucko as your Coach. He is rly good at offensive tanking hockey that will guarantee u some rly good draft picks. And do u know what? He is unemployed

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.
How do you know that? McDonaugh was flat as a limp balloon when he skated to the box. You can't see that as a coach and think he will play to his full capabilities then you made a tactical mistake.
100% of the 2nd and 3rd pairing is still much better than a player that is so gassed that he can't even hit the glass.
Look, I'm not blaming this loss on McDonaugh, or entirely on Torts, but this cost us in that situation. The game should have been over before the OT started or when we had the PP in OT. That is on Sullivan, and this guy needs to go.
