Rangers are obviously good enough to win the series.

So what will be the trigger for game 6, how will they bury that MSG ghost. As we know they don't play all that well in front of their own fans, another mental issue.
I refer back to Brad Richards' BS quote about how they play better on the road because they don't have to "impress" the fans.

Go get a win at home by any means necessary - that'd impress me as a fan.

You found the time for that yet didn't watch the game. It's puzzling. Have fun tomorrow night with "life".
your right I did post 1st....but it wasn't to you....and yet you were the 1st to quote me....have fun wasting time with "life"....yesterday was a Friday night....today is a Saturday morning...

I think Bylsma is one of the most overrated coaches in the league. When the Rangers went up 3-1, he broke up the Crosby/Malkin combo which had been killing us. I hope he makes that blunder again in game 6.

The game was shaping up to be a heavyweight fight (pun intended) between the Crosby and Brassard lines even after the Rangers made it 3-1. And Bylsma, for some reason separated Crosby and Malkin. They were never really a threat again.

Crosby and Malkin didn't play most of the game together even before that. Sporadic shifts and after TV timeouts, but it wasn't like game 4 where they were together all game. Malkin was with Jokinen for most of the 1st. I didn't really understand it given how overwhelming they were two nights earlier.

Brassard's line was matched against Crosby? Was it very effective? I didn't get to see the game.

Yet, you said you're not watching the next game, either. Which is on a Sunday night.

"Initially" you said the Pens have more Cups than the Rangers. They don't. You elaborated later via an edit.

sorry this is what I said initially "the penguins have won more cups and have been to the finals more times in way less time than the rangers"

the part "in way less time" wasn't edited

They weren't matched against each other, but they were the 2 lines that were generating offense consistently.

The Pens turned in a dominating performance when Malkin - Crosby - Kunitz played the whole game together. The Rangers had no answers. I hope he overthinks and separates them going forward.

Putting Crosby and Malkin together in turn would mean Malkin was getting double shifted, right? Or did Sutter move up to 2C?

I have to admit, I thought they were dead going into last night. Of course now they give me some hope... I hope they don't come out tomorrow and crush that hope. I hope the crowd at the Garden is loud from the first minute until the end.

That's fine, but they still haven't "won more cups". It's false.

What you probably meant to say is that the Penguins have "won more Cups in the last 20 years than the Rangers have". That would be correct.

Saying they "won more cups in way less time" is just a false/factually incorrect statement.

I hope they compete tomorrow night. If they do, the Garden will be behind them. First goal will be crucial.

the Rangers have been around since 1926 and have won 4 cup

the Penguins have been around since 1967 and have won 3

The Rangers have existed for 40 more years and have one more cup to show for it

That doesn't qualify in way less time?

Let alone there was a 54 year gap between cups here....the Penguins went 17 years between cups and won 3 total cups in less the 20 years

I get it now...well you said something along the lines of how I could find time to be a Debbie downer this morning and not watch the game last night....I was saying today is a lazy Saturday morning where it doesn't really matter what I do where as yesterday is Friday night and had better things to do....to each their own

Note to Brad: Last night's performance was more impressive than the crap that you and your teammates have pulled on home ice.

If they lose tomorrow because they are putting unnecessary pressure on themselves to impress the fans instead of playing a simple game, they have no one to blame but themselves.

Here's the thing, Petey:

I understand what you're trying to say, but you're saying it incorrectly. Put it this way, I can say the Rangers won more cups in less time than the Penguins (1928-1940, 3 vs. 1991-2009 3).

See how that works? It doesn't, unless you associate a timeframe with it.

Was brought up earlier but it looks like Brass is a big game player. Small sample size but in 6 elimination games as a Ranger (games 6 & 7 v. Washington, games 4 & 5 v. Boston, Game 7 v. Philly, and last night v. Pittsburgh), he has 3 goals and 6 assists. He definitely comes to play when it's on the line.

I re-sign that entire line if I'm Sather.

Pou, Brass, MZA. Moore & Boyle, too. Brad deserves better than a buyout, but it would be beyond stupid not to.

If Stralman's deal is reasonable (which it won't be), I'd sign him too.

Take a run at Legwand (I think Detroit will sign him before 7/1). Pass on Stastny at 7+/per.

Which leaves in a hole at #1 C, as usual. Maybe an Eric Staal deal? IDK. Every team in the league wants to be strong down the middle...

He's nothing great, for sure. Still have to replace Brad with a top 6 guy. Roy? Not much out there. What's the other option? Stepan #1, Brass #2, Miller #3, Boyle #4? I'm not loving that.
