my brain says the caps take this, but the heart still believes in the rangers.
i'd like to see them come out and finally dominate the caps at even strength, as this team is actually capable of. sure, they'll get stuck in their own end at times, but no more constant capital powerplays as we've seen in the previous games @ the verizon.
nash and cally need to step up and contribute. it'd be nice if richards could do the same, but i've written off him at this point.
Win or lose, something has to give. We are squandering away the best years of our superstar goalies career, because we canít construct a functional powerplay. The rangers should have won this series in 5 or 6 games.
There should be NO other goal this offseason but to develop special teams scoring. It needs to be this teamís #1 priority in all the moves they make going into the next season.
I'm expecting out of any game, now is the time both teams big name players will start scoring. Seeing there are more scoring players on the Rangers I would predict a win from them, BUT it's going to be tough because Washington is home.
Hopefully they can pull through, put aside the fact they're away and come out with a much needed win.
Lundqvist gets hung out to dry, shelled 50 shots against. Gets blamed for loss.
Probably not, it'll be a high scoring game, back and forth until the end. Rangers play off of confidence, which they got from that shutout last night and Washington plays at home
Expecting since the Rangers know they're objective that they'll get themselves together and try to end the Caps. Only thing in their way is nervousness. I think they can overcome it though and come out with a 5-4 win in regulation. If it goes to OT, it'll be a nail-biting unpredictable finish.
You have to believe that with Lundqvist's heroics yesterday that our top players will find it in themselves to go above and beyond to win this game for Hank Anything less then a top effort all around is just unacceptable.
