We're 15 points behind them and they have 2 games in hand. To put that in perspective, the Pens just have to go 20-9 to get a better record than us if we win EVERY game remaining.

15 point difference, Pens with 2 games in hand.
I say let's just knock them out in the playoffs instead.

According to the social poll displayed on the jumbotron it was 59% Rangers but I'm not too sure honestly. I was in a section with plenty of Isles fans but mostly Rangers fans.

Also, Brian Boyle seemed to go full playoff Brian Boyle for these two games. Had a few great hits tonight

Marc stall was an absolute beast tonight.

BEAST

Best game of the season

I thought the Rangers played fantastic defensively and as the game went on got better and better with puck possession and smart decisions. Good system game.

The Panthers are closer to us than we are to the Penguins.

Boyle had like 4 huge hits tonight, no joke. One of them helped generate the Carcillo goal.

I don't know, I think it's relevant.

In the other thread people are talking about dumping Stralman.

We play well when we manage to get up ice. Klein seems to be a possibility to get a top 4 role in the near future. I think it's valid to discuss him.

I am loving the Carcillo acquisition more every day. Pretty decent hockey sense for a guy with as many PIMs as he has. He adds the right amount of sandpaper to this roster and can pot the odd goal. As long as he doesn't take dumb penalties, he can be extremely useful down the stretch.

Staal getting back to what he's capable of is a big part of what could make the Rangers a dangerous team.

Call me crazy but I think Poo has been very consistent. He's become an asset. He looks to be about as good a hockey player right now as he ever has been as a pro.

I think trading Callahan would be a huge, HUGE mistake.

@ Kenjets: I'm a bit concerned about our 2nd line too, but honestly I have no clue how to shuffle the lines. The best combo I can come up with is
Kreider-Brassard/Richards-Zucc
Pouliot-Brassard/Richards-Nash
Hagelin-Stepan-Callahan

Problem now is, you have two lines which really aren't that good defensively, and you break up the Kreider-Stepan-Nash combo, which has been working really well lately. I'd be honestly interted in seeing what Zucc and Kreider can do together though. I'd try this, if we have a meaningless game before the playoffs start.

I think Ranger fans need to temper the expectations a tad. This team is not a contender right now. We will probably settle into being a decent playoff team this season. But there are too many question marks on our third line, too streaky first line, not enough offense coming from our blueline. Not to mention we are a bit undersized and still have too many passengers on this team.

We just beat two mediocre teams back to back. The islander game could have gone either way(despite that we played well). The idea that the Rangers could beat a team like Boston in a 7 game series is laughable. Even if the hockey gods throw us a bone and the Rangers cinderella(while getting the best possible match ups) their way to a SCF: any of the top six teams in the west(maybe except Colorado)would kick the living crap out of the Rangers in a finals series.

Team is still a work in progress folks.

Btw, people that were asking about the stammering "boy" asking questions. I forgot the name of the person but I believe he is transgendered(female to male). Its actually a beat reporter that has covered the team for about 2 seasons.

I have no idea why he was stammering so badly however. He was fine when asking Torts questions in the past. Sounds like he had a stroke.

We're 1 pt out of 4th in the conference and 6 pts behind tampa. We're also 1 of only 4 teams with a + team rating in the east now.

Hm. I thought the first period and a huge chunk of the second period might have been the WORST hockey we've seen from this team in a long time. Surprised to see so much optimism in this thread tonight.

Definitely 2 big points, and they defnitely turned it on after the Islanders scored, which was good to see. Unfortunate that it took them a while to wake up though.

You may very well be correct. Klein seems to have that in him.
