1/23: Rangers visit the zoo

Somebody let all the Blues out of their cages and they behaved as wild animals usually do. And on top of that there were 4 monkeys wearing striped shirts. What chaos as Doc would say.

Thought the Rangers played a really good game. Blues got the bounces.

3 stars to come.

This team just isn't good enough to hang with the elite teams of the league. It is what it is.

I stand by my assessment that this game was unwinnable, even though it was close throughout.

A Stanley Cup contender played what was far and away their worst game of the season right before coming into the Garden.

Local kid buys a million tickets for friends and family.

Stifling defensive style.

No chance.

Looked like a NHL vs ECHL team for large stretches.

I'm sorry I don't agree that they played a good game at all.

Coasted half the ****ing game passing the puck to no one. Once Steen scored that (awful) goal, their confidence was shot for 30 straight minutes. I'm floored that they managed 30 shots.

What a game. Can't wait until 11 so I can watch Rangers in 60. Maybe I'll get up at 6 tomorrow morning to watch it again.

It was a 2-1 game. Their defense was phenomenal. But I'm not saying I disagree with you.

Their home record has been the difference between good years and bad years.

And I hate the excuse that "oh, other teams play with more intensity because it's the Garden." Who gives a ****? Overcome that. Be better. Sports is a results-oriented industry.

This team can't beat a good defensive team to save their lives.

Thanks for the goal Nash but **** you for that penalty.

Not the worst game. Every forward sans Nash needs to step it up

Pretty boring game, thought I was watching Torts era hockey there, except that the Blues PP is good.

I thought we played pretty well, the Blues just played better (and played better as a team). The opportunities were there to score a 2nd but once again we failed to capitalize. Our passing was pretty bad all night and it would have been good to see the Rangers going to the net more, in particular CK and Nash

Nice to see what a team with a real GM, a real scouting staff, a real development system, a real coach, a real defense, and a real captain look like. Rangers are totally outclassed in every aspect of this game against a team that is superior in every way. Half the Rangers lineup doesn't even crack this Blues roster.

Team D was shaky again. I dont remember Halak having to face any hard shots. We got outplayed bad. Needed Hank to stand on his head to win this one. I didnt expect them to win this one going in, but it hurts that the Devils get the "Blues" and we get the Blues. This division is too tight for this team to be falling behind like this.

Losing is never okay. Good teams find ways to win no matter what.

They need to be better.

Tonight's game was a lot like earlier in the season when we had a lot of shots but very few chances. Easy game for Halak.
