It seems that this game the Rangers are playnig a much better TEAM defense. They seem to be backing each other, and are actually crashing the net to get rid of the rebounds instead of leaving Hank by himself like normal. I think the Avery trade has done something to this team before he has even arrived. Maybe they realize that won't be the last trade, or maybe they just feel like a new team.
you think we played a good period fellas? i sure didnt, we just played less sucky than the wings. wings were awful out there, particularly their goalie. Rangers were coughing up pucks all over the ice. Had Hasek not given up 3 incredibly soft goals, we would be trailing 1-0. Im not trying to be mister negativity. we have a few great scoring chances, but the wings are playing REAL bad, im not so sure its because of us, seems more like theyre just having an off period...lets hope it continues.
although I wasn one of the very few, if any, who wasn't all too impressed with Malik last season too...Rozsival's a good player. Just wish I didn't see him out there on the first first PP unit every time.
