That's not a soft goal. All you people who have never faced a shot of that speed/caliber should shut their mouths. It was a ****ing laser, and Hank got a piece of it, WHILE being screened.
If you've never played goal, and faced semi/pro shots, please refrain from commenting. Thanks!
It's pointless. The boards has jumped off a cliff and aren't interested in details, let alone any sensitive input. Let them have their illusions if it makes them feel better. Always Hank's fault it he allows a goal.
Rangers don't like they did their homework for this one. The Leafs are skating circles around them.
The Rangers don't do homework. That's the problem. "It's about us. We worry about the Rangers." That's all well and good against most teams. But teams that have speed kill us and we never make ANY adjustments cause Torts refuses to.

It's not that they were completely out-hustled and worked, which they were, it's the manner in which they were. Allowing yourselves to get dangled that many times, and fooled by that man behind the back passes means they weren't ready.
I'm not freaking out though, one bad period and I'm sure they'll come out ready for the 2nd.
Saw the first period prior to boarding this plane. Will see the final score when I land. The Rangers were a step behind the Leaves the entire period. Sure hope they can ramp it up for the next two periods. Hank should ha e had that goal, but was great not to give up more. LGR!
