Game 4 @ Philly (Mason to Start)

Mason in net.

What needs to change?

Retribution for Read hit = bring back a 3-1 series lead to the Garden.

Discuss.

More discipline, especially from Poop but that was the case if it was Mason or Elvis in the net.

Would be nice if we could finally take command of a series and have a short one as opposed to another 7 gamer. Rangers haven't had a two game series lead since 2009 (up 2-0 and 3-1 v. the Caps) and a lot of that has been due to their failures in games 2 and 4. Including this series, it's been 7 series since they've had a two game lead.

Edit - To add on to this, the Rangers haven't won a series in less than 7 games since 08 v. New Jersey. So yeah, win this one please.

I could use something that is less heart attack inducing (such as a 5 game series).

Loss. Until they prove they can win back to back playoff games, I will never pick them to win the next game following a win.

Win this and we're in great shape. Sure would be nice to have game 5 at MSG a possible clincher.

Was thinking the same thing after Game 1. Very important considering how they ran out of gas against the Devils a couple years ago. But that was compounded by Torts not rolling 4 lines and only trusting 2 pairs of D.

But gotta win tomorrow before we can really think of closing it out in less than 7. The Flyers are a good team and the Rangers need to do everything to break their spirit tomorrow.

I get the sentiment, and the cynic in me agrees with it.

But, uh what? They won back to back games in the Ottawa series in 11-12 (games 6 and 7). And also twice in the Caps series in 12-13 (games 3 and 4; and games 6 and 7). Granted their backs were against the wall in all of those situations. And those were very different teams from what this one is now.

Got to expect we'll see the strongest all around effort yet from the Flyers tomorrow. They are in a we'll it's not a must win but it kind of is situation. Can't lose 2 in a row at home and go down 1-3 in a series and have any serious expectation of winning the series. This should be the toughest game yet. We pull out the W and things are looking pretty good.

More of the same, really. Continue to be as tight as they were in the D zone. I'm hoping no one goes out of their way to take a dumb penalty against Read. Similar to what Carcillo did to Giroux (which was embellishment on Claude's part, but whatever) don't even put the ref in the situation to make the call.

Score within the first ten minutes, or keep it scoreless. Give them a reason to quit early.

Test Mason. He's seen 10 minutes of live game action in the past couple of weeks, let's see where he is. Let's see where his rebound control is.

Keep doing what we're doing. The Flyers will take their penalties, it's their nature. Get one on the PP, and let's take this back to MSG 3-1. Shed the Tortorella years of countless 7 game series

I feel like if they can take an early lead or keep it tied well into the game they'll start to get plenty of opportunities because the Flyers will become a desperate team and open it up. I expect Philly to come out strong to try an avoid that. They havent had good starts in any of the 3 games, so they will put an emphasis on that, especially being at home.

I think for the Rangers, they really need to bear down early and capitalize on their chances. You dont want Mason to get comfortable and you want to crush the Flyers spirit. The fans will start to turn on them if they find themselves in a 2-0 hole again. First period is huge, but its not everything

Is there any time in the playoffs where the Rangers should be expecting a crappy effort from the other team?

Philly at home after a loss? Rangers up a game with some breathing room? Yea it's gonna be a tough W.

He has played well but I think it's fair to say Henrik has another level, that's how good he is. If he finds it Friday I like their odds.

This has a loss written all over it, so expecting a solid win. Duplicate of game 3, but a bit uglier.

Touche.

But seriously, do we think any pro athletes go into a playoff game thinking they're not going to bring their best that night?

Sometimes they have it, sometimes they dont - just like any other game. Just so happens the playoffs are under a microscope.

When did I say there is? Perhaps you should re-read my post.

It's going to be a tough win, but like others have said, it'd be nice for them to actually win back to back games and have a 3-1 win lead... hopefully win the series and in less than 7 games.

the worst part about a potential 7-game series is that 6 and 7 are back to back, and then second round could start right away.

Wonderful NHL scheduling again.

The scheduling is not much different than the regular season, yet now everything is an issue. I find it fascinating.

The even funnier part about this crappy schedule is that Montreal and Tampa Bay would have played Game 5 today, one day before the Rangers play Game 4.
