I usually have the same reaction as OP, but this time I felt proud. They battled like lions and gave me one of my favorite hockey seasons ever.
This team has been something special, I pray that they will continue to be something very special with some wiggle room after they hopefully buy out Richards.

Not embarrassing at all. Hell, after the 2011 playoffs where we got trounced by the Capitals I was blackout drunk and blabbering/crying like a little girl before the game ended. And that was an afternoon game. That's embarrassing

I took 2012 against the Devils better, learning from my mistakes.

I took this year way better than I expected to. Just stunned silence, really. The bar I was at kind of "rage quit" the game after the Kings scored, so I didn't see how long Lundqvist was really on the ice for, only caught the first couple of seconds of that. Then, when the bar turned the game back on I watched everything until my friends and I left maybe half an hour after the game ended.

Hank's reaction is just downright brutal.

Not gonna embed, but here's the full video from the goal 'til when Hank gets up... from the net cam. Watch if you dare. It's brutal.

I watched the handshake because it's the greatest thing in all pro sports. Once the handshake was over, so was my interest in watching anything else. Off went the TV.

I watched the whole thing all the way through. The goal celebration, the pile up, the hand shake line, the Smythe and the Cup raising. Just makes me want it all even more.

This wasn't as painful as I anticipated. We just ran into an excellent hockey team and lost our good breaks. It happens.

Same. Was definitely disappointed, but didn't feel the heartbreak others felt. I try to rationalize with myself: "Be proud of them, the way they made it to this point. We can do it again."

As the play developed, I audibly said "oh ***k" and I'm pretty sure that's the last thing I said for over an hour as I sat in shock that the season was over that quickly.... My wife was stunned as well but knew not to say anything to me. My mom and sister didn't even bother to try to call me until last night.

I took 2012 hard. I was really drunk and it was exactly 2 years to the day that I lost my dad. When Henrique scored I completely lost it and bawled on my wife's shoulder.

I understand completely how you feel.

The day after, a bunch of my co-workers, who I know NEVER watch hockey told me they were "SO disappointed too" in an effort to make me feel better... Telling me that is like telling a grieving mother who just lost her only child that you know how she feels. I wanted to smack them all.

in a situation like this, i always think of the sidney crosby stanley cup commercial the year after they lost where he comes out of the photograph. I'm sure the team will feel the same. i know i speak for everyone when i say i never want to feel what i felt again.

And this is why I'm dreading tomorrow. People think they comprehend what I'm going through, but they don't.

I didn't miss one game this year. No joke, not one. I watched every single game this team played from start to finish.

I've done that running on a few years now. I've followed this team hardcore for as long as I can remember.

There are very few people who have any understanding as to just how heartbreaking this was for me. It is truly the only thing I've been waiting desperately for, for my whole life.

That being said, I couldn't be prouder and it gives me hope moving forward that we can do this someday.

I strangely was not as pissed as I thought I would be. I sort of wanted to savour this moment of defeat as I have hardly seen any of my teams lose in a finals in a while (seen the Yanks do it twice but it hardly mattered cus they won so much anyway)(The Giants lost to the Ravens but they more than made up for it since). It was a novel experience to see the Rangers in a final (I became a fan the year they won twenty years ago and took it for granted thinking it was easy to win the stanley cup) and I felt I needed to learn how to lose a big game and not let it be the end of the world. That said I looked at Lundqvist as he lay on the ice after he left it all out there and felt like the Rangers let him down. I was angry at Richards and St. Louis and Nash and all these non Rangers that really don't give a damn about the team like he does. And I realized you can't just bottle the fire that Henrik has and make Rangers out of it. Which is sad. I know they played hard but still. I was disappointed because we just didn't have the horses to hang with L.A. as much as I want to tell myself that we were good and we played hard, we just were not a better team than they were but I was glad that our young players got to have this experience. I was especially proud of guys like McD, MZA, Brassard, Kreider and especially Hagelin who really grew before our eyes in these playoffs. And vets like Dominic and Boyler who showed what a strong 4rth line can do when you play them like one. I was so perplexed though at just how much offense we lack despite the system we run. We just don't have that big gun that can win a game for us.

It was tough to watch Hank, and his dream being crushed. He worked so hard and did everything he could for the team, but it just wasn't enough this time.

He really wanted to hoist that cup, and fell just an inch away from it.

But, he is signed for another 6 years. I believe his dream will come through before his career is over.

And Mac is signed long term to a cheap contract, he must be kicking himself. We have a good core to keep together and build on. Maybe Nash can spend the summer at Walter Gretzy's house

Thank you fellow members for sharing your feelings. It's hard to believe it's been a week since Game 5. This will probably strike many of you as odd but this affected me so much that I needed to purchase the photo of this.

a little bit yeah. My advice is to let go of this a little bit. I wouldn't want a constant reminder of what could have been hanging around my house but that's just me. you probably are wired differently.

I don't ever want to hear or see that moment again ever. As soon as the puck hit the net, my tv was off. I never ever want to hear or see anything about it. If we lost fairly I'd feel different, but I'll never shake the feeling that we got an absolute screw job by the refs.

Don't know why anyone would intentionally watch any further after Martinez scored, highlights or otherwise. Might just be me, though.
When Martinez scored, I tried to sleep but I couldn't. I was just thinking of all the missed OT chances we had in those 3 games in LA. We were much closer than every non-Ranger fan thinks

I've never been so ****ing pissed in my life.

When we spend as much time as we do...we got cheated. We got to the finals despite the refs effort in the previous two series to **** us.

****. If we lost because we got beat, I might just appreciate the fact we made it to the best team in hockey. We got screwed, and there's no ****ing way to see the bright side of it.

I'm proud as **** of my team, we didn't lose. We got ****ing *****. Even for the MVP choice.

**** Gary Bettman, I truly hope the ****er dies. He hasn't done anything good for this sport.

He gets booed by every crowd. Wonder why.


...OP, surely nothing to be embarassed, or I'm proud to be embarassed.

My wedding ring got chipped after the goal too. No idea how...
