The _______, the Powerplay, and the Enroth

The Good -

- Eh. Vanek's shot was a snipe.
- Regehr putting Gaborik into the Tunnel.

The Bad -

- Giving up two shorties, one for each unit.

The Ugly -

- Enroth with three weak goals. That was prime Portlandia for Jhonas.
- Why recall Stuart to kill penalties and only give him one PK shift? Throw Whitmore a bone.

Adam played well.

That's pretty much all I got.

I'll state it again here for more visibility...

I think this game sends Lindy back to the old "ride Ryan Miller for 12 games until Miller breaks down and the fanbase cries to use Enroth" routine.

No problem with the effort, just the results. No finish and no goaltending = loss.

It might. People are building a book on Enroth and it appears high glove and 5-hole are the supposed exploits. Then again, it might not. Tonight was a game that some level of finish up front and they're right in it, crappy goaltending or not. They've got to start scoring.

goaltending completely failed them tonight. They lacked finish, but with a competent net-minder in there things might have been different.

The Good:
I like Adam - Kassian situation, not to fond of Leino with them though

The Bad:
Yes, Enroth had a stinker tonight, hey, it happens to the best of em

The Ugly:
The complete lack of puck control and ability to finish was here before the injuries and is now beyond a slump, it's officially a trait of this team now.

I don't think they make it past the 1st round of the playoffs if they make the playoffs.

Can't score goals to save our life. And when we do, we cough up the lead.

this ^^^^^

this team can't finish.

enroth was horrible on 2 of those goals. he was off his marks on the 3rd, and his 5 hole is brutal.

Agreed. They skated well, but they can't score. With all that talent, someone's got to start popping the biscuit in the basket.

G: Can't fault the effort. It was there. They had a lot of good chances.

B: Not converting on those chances.

U: 2 shorties and questionable goals against in general.

Good:

- This thread title
- Vanek's goal

Bad:

- Stafford can't convert. And won't shoot. And is generally frustrating.

Ugly:

- This team

- Enroth

- Our home record

Effort was good. Adam was good. Kassian was great on the wall. Vanek's shot was nasty. Gragnani actually played very, very well tonight, though nobody will ever give him credit for that.

Enroth was utterly, abominably bad. No way around it.

Fact is, the Rangers are just a better, more talented team than the Bufchester AmeriSabres. With the number of players out, we're just not good enough to beat good team without getting the bounces. Tonight, Enroth's play, couple posts, jumpy pucks, etc lead up to a loss. They held tough for a while but this team at 60% strength just isn't good enough to beat the Rangers when Enroth can't stop a beach ball.

Ennis with 7 shots, Vanek with 5, Stafford with 5, Ehrhoff with 4... and only one goal among them. Blech.

it's pretty funny when you realize we're missing entire lines and then some.

Having those guys to bang up Gaborik and Richards would have been great.

I thought the effort was there (G) but the SH's (B) and terrible goaltending (U) sucked the life out of this team.

And it doesn't help when the team can't finish. (B)

This creates a tough situation for the team... most of the D played pretty darn well (Sekera, McNabb), even outstandingly (Regehr), (G) while the FWD can't finish (B) and then your goaltender stinks up the place. (U)

I think this is where team leadership has to step up....not with words but effort and by example on the ice.

Your leaders cannot be inconsistant. Pommers and Roy and Vanek led last night but sloppy play by Pom on the 2nd SH (followed by Ehrhoff's laziness and Enroth's incompetence) puts a big monkey on the Capt. back. It's become crucial at this point how he and his A's handles it.

Good

Only 6 regular players were out.
Miller got some rest.
adam was on his game for the first period
the leino line was the most effective.
some really close calls.
I liked mcnabb

bad
not a high enough threat on offense.
the powerplay continues to lack intensity.


ugly
where was the energy line?
