Agree 100%.

If you think penalties ONLY happen because you are just so much better than the other team then you are delerious, some players are lazy and hook, others try to get an advantage, it's the playoffs....know how many penalties were NOT called for both sides?? players try to get away with stuff, the Caps were just getting caught

The Rangers had a few oppertunities that they cashed in on, otherwise we'd be down 3-0. We have never this year been an offensive team capable of scoring 4 goals a game....if you think we can do this well then it's a waste to type this..

Not really. I never said anything about us winning or being swept. I'm tired of all the people who just bash the team and have nothing else to say about them.

Exactly. This entire series has been razor thin. This board has become the WFAN of sports boards. I hate having a rooting interest in the games because they have been so good.

Yeah, scoring 4 goals and winning a playoff game does mean that we played good. Maybe not perfect, but good.

I hope Powe is okay, if it is a concussion, 2nd one in less than 6 months is not good. I hope he gets thru it fast. If he is out on Wednesday, I hope Clowe is back in, if not then insert Kreider, but I really think Clowe will be in on Wednesday, which could be another huge boost for the Rangers. And I know I am in the minority (or even the only person), but I really like Pyatt's game in the playoffs, I did not like him in the season and thought when Rangers got healthy he should be scratched. However, Pyatt is strong on the puck along the boards and has made some good passes, I am fine with him in the lineup.

I completely agree with every single word.

The Rangers played their best game in game 1 of the series. They had the best result in game 3. They are far different concepts!
I did NOT see that coming!

Agreed wholeheartedly. Games ebb and flow particularly this time of year.

How about the play of Moore and Brassard tonight?

Also like what Dorsett has brought to the team particularly after being out for so long.

For all of the Boyle jokes and undue criticism, guy was fantastic tonight.

Who says "only?" I have given specific examples of penalties that came off of hard play and forecheck. All you have done is say that our team sucked. I get that you want to take the easier route (be lazy and just yell about ****), but you should try being objective.

We had a very good half in the 1st, a very good half in the 2nd, and a complete period (for once) in the 3rd. Keep throwing water on the win. It's cute.
Am I missing something? Sometimes penalties are drawn in large correlation to play away from the puck as well. Players get away with a lot in the playoffs and fortunately for us, the Caps were penalized.

They were one shot away from winning game 2

This series could easily be 3-1 Rangers.

20 seconds away from a bang bang play from Ribeiro to Ward to Backstrom for his 2nd of the night. By the grace of god that puck didn't go in somehow...net was wide open. Anyone catch the play?

Can we get a co-GM who can work free agency and just let Sather handle trades and RFA contracts?

Earlier, on the GDT, I predicted 4-2 Rangers , but Hank decided to prove me wrong. Great game from Hank, btw.

This. jeez. It was a good win, they weren't perfect, and have things to work on, but they played pretty well tonight, especially compared to Game 2. The series has been close so far.
