Lundqvist has a shutout streak of about 150 minutes. Impressive.

Sabres clogged the neutral zone and then stacked the line.

A speed demon like Gaborik can get neutralized that way. Richards' is (was?) an elite playmaker who never in his career needed to create off the rush. Like Savard, he's always been good finding seams in traffic and setting up one timers.

Inexcusable if you ask me.

There should be a pole. But the only choice in the poll should be Henrik

Still, with the game on the line in the shootout and the pressure on he scored. He got it done when he had to. The same can't be said for Richards. Good players find a way to step up in pressure situations, and Gaborik displayed that in the SO tonight (only reliable SO player we've had this season).

It sickens me the lack of pure hockey talent/sick hands t a lot of players on this team have. Stepan, Richards, even Callahan and others have no sense in how to deke.

Take Richards for example. You can't fake a goalie with a sad, amateur move like that. You have to have some hands! Learn to deke! You're ****ing NHL pros for christsake! I face guys who could make silly moves that I've never seen many of our players do minus a select few.

The reality is, Hank saves. Plain and simple. We are an overrated team that lacks lots of talent. This is what worries me from truly believing we are a true contender to go deep in the playoffs despite our ridiculous record.

If Biron is our number 1 where are we?

Scary thought.

Richards made a gorgeous pass to Callahan that Miller made a phenomenal save on.

Tough crowd. Sabres played outstanding, so did that guy between the pipes for the Rangers. Take the win, move on.

Always said we can use more offense. We have elite Goaltending and a solid defense corps.

Wow, tough crowd. I thought that game was an example of two teams that were playing fantastic defensive hockey backed by two fantastic goalies.

Great first 65 minutes. The shootout once again ruins a ridiculously intense, tightly played game.

Richards played his best game in a while. Looked noticeable on every shift.

PP is still pathetic.

Lundqvist is god.

Our record is not indicative of overall offensive talent. We have the defense and goaltending.

Makes up for last night, where we deserved to win. I'm in disbelief we won this one.

Lundqvist was so far ahead of every other player out there, he was insane.

I thought Richards had his best game in his past 20 or so, but he was still mediocre. Hard to believe you can be in the NHL and think dekes like that pile of **** will work in the shootout.

McDonagh was the only dman that didn't make a retarded/huge mistake.

Every other player was awful. Easily the most angry I've been at this team in the 3rd.

Worst game of the season by a looootttt.
