I'd really like to see the PP step up. I know it is wishful thinking, but if the flyers are going to continue to play dirty you have to make them pay. You can't go 1-6. Convert just one of those and it is a different game.

3-12 overall in the series. It needs to be better because the flyers are going to give you opportunities.

I don't know why it's considered a disappointment when the teams were 2-2 in the regular season, and the Rangers were a better road team.

Preach.

Hank's numbers from January on are out of this world.

January - 12 games, 1.91 GAA, .938 sv%
Feb - 2 games (heh), 1.92 GAA, .930 sv %
March - 14 games, 2.44 GAA, .917 sv%
April - 5 games, 1.57 GAA, .949 sv%

That's 33 games, half of Hank's season. If a 2.44 GAA is highlighted for a month of 'bad' play from you in a selected portion of your season that equates to over half your games, you're probably not getting outplayed that often in that stretch.

Continue with the hyperbole!

The PP won them game 1 - it could be argued it lost them game 2. Its not going to be firing on all cylinders every game.

Or their lack of PK? 50% is an embarrassment.

That is true, but the 4 on 3 was especially painful to watch. And if wasn't for the bogus embellishment calls they could have easily had two more pps that they likely would have also failed at. Point is that when they get as many opportunities as an undisciplined Flyers team is going to give they really need to do better to take advantage.

One was an empty netter, and you're not exactly using a huge sample size to begin with

Honestly, I didn't see a dive on either play. Still don't after re watching it a few times.

I just think it's funny people think this series will be a cakewalk. Philly has a good team. Yeah we're expected to win, but it's not like an 8th seed against a 1st seed.

Im not too worried about special teams either way.

The Rangers need to assert themselves at even strength. They're a good team when they have the puck, but sometimes they don't show the urgency to go get it. Some traffic in front of the net would help too.

Lundqvist would have been in the vezina running once again had his season not started so poorly. So no, it wasn't a whole season thing.

Also, Dorsett's dive was blatant. Zucc, not so much.

I think it's more to do with how relatively dominant we looked in game one and then we were up 2-0 in the first 10 minutes.

Hoping the lunacy of the WFC will energize the Flyers into taking more stupid penalties.

Yep.

But, as a wise man once said:

Quote:
Iíd suggest the odds are in the Rangersí favor. That doesnít mean the series is assuredly theirs, however. These discrepancies havenít ironed themselves out after an 82-game schedule; a best-of-7 series presents a much smaller window for the trends to correct themselves.
I don't think the series should be a cakewalk. You should never really expect a 7 game series to be (ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN). I had the Rangers as a 65% favorite to begin the series and a 59% favorite now.

Hank played 63 games. 2nd GAA among goalies with 60 or more games played. 3rd sv % with 60 or more games played.

#Mediocre

He also tied for the league lead in goalie assists, but I guess we're ignoring that too?
Get your facts out of here.

He's clearly being outplayed by the other goalie even though they're being attacked by two entirely different teams and are in no way in direct competition against one another.

Rubber meeting road time here... Yeah they took their foot off the gas in the last game and it cost them. That's been a problem for this team going in a decade... They've blown leads before... They've come from behind in other games.

Put up or shut up.

Just get it done. I'd like Nash to show up and not just have a "good effort" game.

A cakewalk would be a sweep. You can win a series in 5 games and battle hard to do so. I don't see how being confident in the Rangers winning this series because they are the better team gets reduced to it being seen as a "cakewalk."
