I hate this ****ing guy. **** the two wins they got. Wish they would have gotten swept. Maybe we would have seen this guy gone.

Hey Torts - SUNDAY IS AN ELIMINATION GAME you jerk off
Waitaminute. If he acknowledges that it is an elimination game, then maybe they play with desperation and heart to grind it out for a win. What a weird statement.

Torts should of just came out and said he won't this loss ruin his weekend. If we lose Sunday I doubt it'll ruin his Mother's Day either.

Fair criticism and outbursts of anger and passion are fine, but this "world is ending" mentality that are displayed by some is just over the top and not fair to the team.
Washington to the ECF?

No, it's our ineptitude and incompetency that is making Washington look like All-Stars. I don't see Washington going through Boston. Boston hits, they get chippy, don't have problems scoring goals, don't take a period or two off, and they score on the PP.

I don't see it. We came out and played OK to start the 2nd. Period was even until that ******** call. Look, I am not blaming Boyle at all. Far from it. I'm blaming the team mentally breaking after that horrendous joke of a call. They need to be mentally stronger. But that goal definitely deflated them for the rest of the game until OT.

They have changed, literally all of them since his rookie season, IIRC.

I'm not sure they'll ever get it right before he retires.

Detroit's captain scores in overtime.

Must be nice to have one of those...

I just wish he would come out and ask for Torts to be fired.

Exactly.

I think the Nash "half spin-o-rama" is proof enough that he's playing hurt. Or at least not 100%. He had done that move in the regular season as well, but not EVERY time like he's doing now. Other times, he'd make his patented power move to the net, something he has not done once this series. A Rick Nash at 100% makes that power move. A Rick Nash at 80% or less even? Not making that move, maybe he doesn't have the burst. I suspect we see news about Nash's groin come the end of the season.

Hope Clowe is okay, but if not I hope Kreider gets plugged back in. Think Torts might go with Newbury though to get a center on that fourth line.

No. That's what every other coach in the league would do to get his players fired up. It's different in NY.

It would make me so happy to hear Henrik threaten to leave unless Torts is fired. Might be our only chance at this point.

I think we win this game if it's on home ice, to be honest. Not having the crowd behind them to help with that ******** penalty and ******** goal broke them mentally.

I'm mad that this team broke mentally after the last two games where they showed amazing mental strength.

FWIW, I thought we played a solid OT. It was back and forth and some of the best, most exciting hockey I have seen from any team in any year. It sucks to be on the losing end of that OT.
Completely agree. I also believe that the refs tilted the ice in the third, whether that was because they thought they called too many penalties on the Capitals or they made a decision to swallow their whistles. I believe that if a team continually gets away with interference and tripping, that team gets a lot of space and can tilt the ice with possession.

At the Garden, Washington wouldn't have gotten away with nearly as much crap as they did.

I have a feeling Philly is going to offer him a pretty penny. The fact that they love scoring goals should also be enticing.

Yeah. I don't want this at all. We are the New York Rangers, not the ****ing Jets.

Don't need that broken ********.
