This is a necessity, not a luxury, heading into the playoffs.
MSL is supposedly a hard forechecker, and Zucc doesnt exactly shy away from a scrimmage if there is one to be had, I dont understand whats there is to cringe about ? Didnt Zucc get into it right there in the first period ?

This was probably the most intense hard fought game we've had all season, and I can literally find nothing wrong with what the team did in terms of pure guts and determination

@AGrossRecord: Lundqvist says he would have skated down to confront The Bob if scrum became six on five. It didn't. "Lucky him," Hank says.

Imagine... if we make the playoffs in a seeded position we're going to have a full series against either Columbus or Philly... should be entertaining.

Lack of physical play...yeah, we have Kreider. Too bad he almost never shows it.
He's really cooled off after a fiery playoff run and hot streak early this season. I know he's a rookie, but that kid should be scoring and hitting a lot more!

He is by the way team leading in points by now. And that with five games lesser played.
Yes, I'm a proud Norwegian.

What a game! Loved the emotion. Loved the immediate response after they scored. Loved Hank's play. Loved Danny's save at the end.

Voted for:
1. Nash (obvious reasons)
2. Hank (was an absolute wall when we needed him to be)
3. Taco (continues to play well and beat McKenzie. Also loved that he pointed to his visor to say "I can't start this but let's go")

I didn't get to watch the game bc I had to work last night, but I'm still lolling that one of the poll options is Beaver Richards.

I'd like to request next PGT poll you name Boyle - Tin foil Boyle.

He cooled off because he was getting 1 to 2 penalties a game from his rough play. He hasn't found the line just yet but he'll get there imo.

The guy I'm most impressed with this year is Zuccarello. Easily.

Up till this year, my impression was that he could be decent NHL player but not much more. He's really changed my mind on that.

He's continued to get better and make everyone he plays with better. Still remains to be seen if he can do that with MSL, but we're early days there.

And it's not so much his skill, which though impressive is not the only thing it takes to be a success in New York. Watching Zuccarello you have to be impressed with the rapport he has with his mates. There is no doubt how much they like and respect him. He's a leader on that team now. Someone counted on to deliver results in pressure situations. And like any great NY athlete he seems to thrive on the pressure.

That is a singularly rare quality in New York. Being a successful athlete in New York.....is just different. It's tougher. I know many of you don't think that but there is a whole lot of precedent and current performance which bears out this fact.

In any case Zuccarello has proven that he is special. He belongs. Lock him up. Long term.

What has impressed me the most is how he has shown a physical side I never knew existed. Size won't hold him back. He goes into high traffic areas and won't back down from anyone. He's all heart.

Word for word, exactly how I feel. He's a special player who finally 'figured it out' this year. Let's make him a career Ranger.

Was Dave Maloney fired for pointing out Lundqvist was to deep in the net on that bad goal?

Yeah. I agree rage.. An excellent quality. But he's going to need to back it up...and he'll need some help there. Hopefully last night sets a marker for how well this team stands together. Guy's like Kreider, Boyle, Dorsett, and Girardi need to be ready. It's coming.

I guess after a game where we have 2 players initiate fights, many scrums and had a lot of physical pushback, you still needed to find something to complain about. Onto the MSG brass. Really graspin at straws.

I like the BJ's. I like their style and they have some players who don't mess around.

The only turd is Comeau. Once a turd, always a turd.
Ahh, you mean just like Daniel Carsillio?

Because it was a Ranger who did it. It would have been a goal if it were the other way.
