Stand them up in the neutral zone and counter punch. They did that a couple of years ago quite effectively against the Caps. Yes, I know, a different Rangers team and a different Capitals team.
Doesn't matter, they need to stop them in the middle of the ice.
Thats not happening with this head coach.

Torts should scratch our best forward now?

No, Del Zotto needs to not be on the point on the powerplay solely for the reason that he has a bad shot. If he wants to get back on the PP he can work on actually hitting the net in the offseason but it's been the same thing with his shot three years running now.

As I believe I said the other day I would like the first PP unit to be
Callahan Stepan Nash
Stralman Zuccarello

This way everyone is on their off wings with the ability to take one timers. Stralman has a pretty good shot and Zucc takes a quick wrist shot as well as being a precise passer.

Gotta love Ranger fans, the guy who scores the only goal is to blame for the loss...gotta have a whipping boy...

Lol, I could not care less if some n00b "berates" me for knowing more than he does. Not that big of a deal so I'm not really worried about that.

Pair Moore and Richards on the point and I think you have some good results. Richards and Moore have styles that, in theory, should go really well together. They both know when to shoot and both get good, hard, low shots on net. I like Moore's shot better, but Richards can feed him the puck as well.

And Moore is fast enough on the back-end to make up for Richards's lack of speed.

The problem is that the ****ing coaches won't do that. I am no Torts hater, but I cannot stand the stubbornness on PP pairings. Del Zotto CLEARLY does not work with Richards. It's painfully obvious. Torts changes up the lines all the time but for some reason we get the same, tired PP units time and time again. I don't really understand that. I mean, Sullivan is supposedly in charge of this stuff, but if that's actually the case? Maybe Torts needs to truly take over the reigns there. I don't really know, but we always get new lines 50 times during the game but we never really see different PP units.

- Nash was terrible again, but he really does look like he's injured out there. Doesn't have that skating/strength that he had in the beginning of the season. If he isn't injured, well...I regret the trade, to be honest. The ONLY thing that could excuse his play thus far is an injury.
- Lundqvist played his best game since game two. Didn't have to make a ton of crazy saves, but he made the saves he needed to make.
Any general observations on your boy Boyle and his penalty?

Boyle has more goals than Callahan, Nash and Richards combined. There is absolutely no way that his single blunder right there is as massively poor as you're making it out to be.

So much goes into losing a hockey game. Boyle is a but a single piece. He also happens to be a single piece of why we almost won.

You're the type of person who was saying the same **** about Gaborik last year during the playoffs, and after the season ended you found out his shoulder was hanging by a thread.
Yeah and until we find out he is playing hurt, I'm not going to assume he is. Also, I rarely got on Gaborik, and I have never gotten on Nash once. He looks tired, not hurt.

This team proves once again that they can't win on the road... 16-6-2 at home vs. 10-12-2 on the road. 0-3 on the road in the playoffs already.

The ten road wins...
Tampa
Boston (SO)
NYI (OT)
Washington
New Jersey
Philly
Carolina
NYI (OT)
Buffalo
Carolina (OT)

So three of them were practically home games and of the other seven only two were against playoff teams.

Honestly, I want to see Stralman and Moore together on the PP. One lefty and one righty just shooting one timers at the net. It wouldn't hurt at this point.

It's between Boyle and Lundy, sadly.

Not only the Powerplay, but how can anyone say this team played good to great offensively whilst getting only 8 SOG through 2 periods?

You don't score, you don't win. If anyone thinks we can get anywhere scoring 1 or 2 goals a game, I have a bridge to sell you. Every goaltender has an off night, can't depend on Hank every game. Same old Rangers.

I am not throwing in the towel on this season, just excited for young guys coming in next season! This is a well assembled organization, drafted well lately. It is going to be exciting. But i'm getting ahead of myself...Bring on game 6, 1 period at a time, 1 shift at a time....Rangers will win!
I agree, I think our best shot at the cup are the next two yrs. We will be able to shore up 3 and fourth lines and get nastier on d. For me this seasons failures might have forced the changes that bring us the cup.

Who said it was? Why does a comment about a poor part of Lundqvist's game immediately mean I am blaming the loss on him (keep in mind I explicitly said earlier in the thread that I did not believe that to be the case -- funny that you conveniently missed that comment)?

Everybody has a piece in this. Nobody is above blame. This "Poor Henrik" garbage is for little kids who still believe in Santa.
Are you kidding? Two goals against on 33 shots is a .943 save percentage. The dude posts a .943 save pct, facing much higher quality scoring chances than Holty did, and the NYR offense mustered one goal all game and a combined 9 shots in the second and third periods. And you're putting that on our goalie? If Lundqvist needs to post a shutout for a win, this team is in trouble. In fact he posted a regulation shutout in game two, and a .974 save pct on 38 shots, and they still lost.

The Rangers have scored two goals over the course of three games and two OT's in Washington and you're putting that on the goalie?
