So, I heard the ref was from Boston and is a Bruins fan? Nice. I remember when we had that **** happen against the Flyers last season.

Defense was pretty good overall.
Thought Nash played well.
Bottom two lines played well for the most part.
Zucc was alright.
Brassard didn't do much - bad turnover at the end.
Stepan was invisible again other than the goal he did not contribute at all
Callahan was extremely bad.
Lundqvist had a poor game. 45 saves but at least one of those first two can't go in. first one he put in himself and second was just soft.
ARE U KIDDING ME WITH THESE OT LOSSES!!!!!!!!! i swear to god im not watching anymore ranger overtimes, im f'ing done. what is lundqvists playoff ot record? its gotta be god awful. we are the most unlucky overtime team ive ever seen, CAN WE GET 1 F'ING BOUNCE IN OT???????????????????? i keep watching cuz i think "we're due, even by accident we're bound to win an overtime game". so sick of this $hit
It's truly at the point where I knew they were going to lose when it went to ot. I wonder what the all-time playoff ot record is for this franchise. I am assuming it isn't good.
Bad pass by Brass, BAD pinch by Mac, and Chris Rooney makes the game about himself, again. Those 2 late penalties late in regulation and the one in OT shouldn't have been called.
Alas, **** happens. On to game 2.
EDIT: and Hank needs to have those shots that went in. The first one was flukey as hell and the second was a clear shot that he stops 9 times outta 10. However, I'm not too pleased with myself either if I'm Rask.
I can't believe we lost to sh...ty, slow, untalented team like the Boston Bruins. If we had played like this against Washington, we would have lost in four. The Rangers just didn't want to win this one. Pathetic effort by the whole team, except maybe McDonough.
Just a frustrating loss. We hung in there early, took the lead, and then just let them climb back into it. Horrible pass by Brassard but other than that he was good. Hank was very good but I reckon he wants those first two back. mcD was the best D man except for the pinch.
The good: McD, MZA, Brassard, the Boyle line, I though Kreider looked better as well, goalposts
The bad: stupid passes, inconsistent refs (no they didn't cost us the game, but consistency with calls is needed) cally, nash (lifted at times but we need more), those knucklepuck goals
The Redden: the ******* horrible PP
Need to shake this one off and come out strong in game 2. Based on today this series is winnable.
When will we ever stop making charitable donations to opponents in big games? The Bruins were there for the taking and we handed them this game. It was a total team effort fail, including Henrik allowing 2 softies. The PP continues to be an utter joke. Richards and Callahan made better passes to the Bruins than Bruins did. These OT failures are so frustrating.
