Not much. Most of it is him just being a mediocre player.

And don't even get me started on Brandon Burlon.
Don't forget that future hall of famer Santini will be joining them soon.

Much like Tim Erixon, who was being discussed in another thread, I still have faith that Larsson will develop into a fine player. As is often the case, though, people fail to understand how difficult a young defenseman's development path can be. And obviously the predictions of perennial all star nominations were ****ing ridiculous.

Worth noting that the Rangers offense is out of the bottom-10 for the first time this season...

Agreed, really thought they would have played both.

This also puts them into the positive goal differential for the first time this year

Feel pretty happy for the Rangers fans that went.

Must've had a helluva time. Very jealous.

Probably had trouble picking it up.

They're actually even. A lot of standings include the "goal" earned by a team in a shootout win as an actual goal. Currently, they've scored and allowed 136 goals.

IIRC, this is the first time this season the Rangers have had a positive GF/GA differential.

I just hope that the Rangers show the same type of awesomeness on Wednesday when I go to the game.

Was at the stadium, was a fun atmosphere. Cold as ****.


Glad they pulled it out. There were actually slightly more devils fans there IMO, but didn't matter after the first thank god. I walked the stadium the entire game, plenty of open seats. Probably 70% capacity, maybe less.

Tough to analyze each teams game. You could tell the goalies were fighting it. It was just a weird thing for them. It was a big surprise seeing the snow, but it was a blast.what a second. Awesome that Marty blew it. Couldn't stop a bowling ball

Only gripe: I know it's cold, but people take your damn hats off during the national anthem. Drives me nuts.
Thank you. Was thinking the same thing. where were you?

Yup, mentioned the empty seats in the Yankee Stadium thread.

I think Wednesday is going to be even worse because the Devils put in a pretty decent showing. I don't think as many Isles fans are going to go and I also don't see a lot of Rangers fans going to both.

Hideki Zuccarello? He should be Dustin Pedroia or Jose Altuve.

Gotta say though, walking in, with it being so cold and such a big game... And seeing that rink in the middle of the stadium with all of the snow... One of the best sports experiences of my life.

With the snow starting to come down unexpectedly and the Rangers lighting them up in the second. One of the best stretches of Rangers hockey I've ever had the pleasure of being in attendance for. Glad I brought the flasks lol

Also something about Marty being old.

That's awesome. Never was a fan of Mac but love him for saying that.
