I thought Championship was going to stop watching? He certainly wasn't around here for the two wins.

Why doesnt he address the issue that we played the 2nd and 3rd period in our own end literally only getting the puck out to center to the caps or deep for a line change?

Exactly my point. This team is relying Lundy to play god-like every frickin game.

I don't think half of these people were here after Game 4.

Not Van. But anyone else. Hell, he'd be better of on Minnesota at this point. This team is just worthless when a big offensive play is needed.

No reason to let this loss ruin your weekend. Right Chris Dru.. Eh Ryan Callahan? Every single Ranger needs to be better in game 6.

Ugh.

Be careful. I said this about Richards the other day and got berated. As I said the other day Richards is the only guy on the powerplay who actually gets the puck and shoots. Everyone else is just standing in place looking around. When Richards has it on the point he fires it. It is ironic since he is a playmaker and not a goalscorer.

Maybe he should. Perhaps it will help his rebound control if he gets mad.

Everyone knows they have zero chance to win this series now right?

They can't win in Washington. Proven fact.

Yep, you are right, their overall play on the road has been horrendous. But with that horrendous play, they've been in OT for three of those. It's one bounce one way or the other in those games. We didn't get one in either of them. To say game 6 doesn't matter because we lost all 3 games on the road is a bit silly.
I wish I had more faith in this team, but I've been let down too many times already to get my hopes up again. It's literally the same crap every year, a "bounce" here and a "bounce" there and we're out in round one.

I wouldn't be so fuming mad it I thought the team put their best effort into it IMO, they did not. They weren't hitting, they weren't putting pressure on the Caps in the NZ, they weren't winning puck battles, and they were knocked off the puck with ease.

Maybe it's reactionary to say game six "doesn't matter" but, to me, the only game that really matters at this point for the Rangers is game seven, and if games one, two, and five are any indication of how the Rangers will play in game seven, well, we're pretty ****ed.

I think we all know this will go to 7.

I am so disappointed in Nash. Bummer...

I do agree...Rib should have been given at least 1 penalty there for either diving or crosschecking and player in the head. Also, the Rangers had a great odd man rush there, that was hard for me to swallow and then the pp goal was hurtful

I tell Rick Nash to look for other players and pass the puck and look to get it back. Or shoot earlier
Moore stays on point on 1st PP unit
Pretty much, but they're so different at home that he gets confidence in his dumb line-up selections and then plays them in DC where they fail miserably.

Yes, that's what prevented us from winning this game.

that's a trademark move, he's been "perfecting" it for a couple years. Surprised you never saw it during the season

Want facts?

In 2009, they won Games 1 and 2.

In 2012, they won Game 3.

Facts.

Be a fan. Not a downer.
