I am a huge optimist but its extremely unfair to rag on Dantes19 after tonight.

To say this was a debilitating loss is quite the understatement.

Of course, that team is a lot more talented than this year's squad. But it ain't over til it over. The Rangers looked horrible in Games 4 and 5 in 1994 but pulled it out in the end.

youre forgetting the most obvious post if there was an hf board after game 5 in '94...........

Dont give up hope, we have to go and win 2 in a row. Our backs are against the wall and now it is time to show if we are truly the best team in the eastern conference

So i guess people with low post counts know nothing, is that how it works here? LOL and people who use big words are smarter too right? I believe in this NYR team and i don't care what happens i'm behind them, my reality is that we can win any game on any given day against any team.

1-1 in their arena.

Lundqvist at his best is a better goalie than Brodeur.

Lundqvist is a competitor and will bounce back.

4 PP goals this series, better than regular season.

Dubinsky has had a game to knock off rust.

3-0 in games where loses would be season enders these playoffs.

None of these guarantee a win, but plenty of reason not to throw in the towel either.

I'm a fake fan because I don't believe this team has it in them to pull off something that happens like 20% of the time twice in the same playoffs? Because I think that when you lose a game about as bad as you can lose it after pouring your heart into it, you're not going to pour your heart into it again. Because we were garbage in Prudential Center and I see the lack of energy from the long season and from the debilitating loss will be the death of this team in that building? Well I guess I'm a fake fan. Being a fan isn't only about being optimistic 24/7.

You all overrate momentum and such. They will just come out for game 6 like nothing happened in game 5. They are professional athletes they don't get let down after losing games and then just mail it in and not show up for the next game. It's also been happening this entire playoffs, winning every other game and such, playing a good game, then a bad game etc.. Anyway this was the best game we played all series so if anything it's a good thing. Sometimes you get unlucky, refs miss things (gionta high stick), and bounces don't go your way and you lose, whatever. The team played well there really isn't much to complain about. Sure they didn't play well after they scored the 3rd goal but for the vast majority of the game they completely dominated play. We were getting more scoring chances this game than multiple of the other games combined. We held them to few shots. Did Lundqvist play his best game? No. But I mean really the first goal wasn't his fault as the play shouldn't have happened. The second goal was a horribly unlucky bounce (and if you want you can say it was somewhat negated on Callahans goal which was an unlucky bounce off his leg for the devils). The third goal...well yea that's on Hank but McDonagh can't turn that puck over just as he's entered the offensive zone and the 4th goal was just a one timer going cross ice, that's a goal on anyone so really I don't thin he was as bad today as you are all making him out to be.

If we play like we did today, for the rest of the series, I'm confident that we can win the next two games and move on. If we play like we did in some of the other games, well then we will have to hope the bounces go our way for good things to happen but at least we know the guys have it in them to play to this level. We just have to hope that they show up crisp and ready to go on Friday.

ANY team that plays the ways the Devils have against us wins. Even if they're not good at it.
it just seems like they are only capable of urgency when they are down, whether in a game or in any of the series as a whole. they play to break even, not to lose.

funny, i used to scream at Renney for this mentality. Seems worse with Tortorella. although it's not his fault we have hardly any top scoring talent.

As long as Lundqvist is in net, that's all the substance I need to believe in a comeback. It's going to be tedious, ugly, and horrendously difficult. But still possible.

1) He's been at his in 40% of the games this series

2) Why didn't he bounce back from game 4?

3) 0 in the last two games (though on few attempts). We're not scoring **** even with the PP goals.

4) Dubinsky sucks this year, he won't be the difference maker.

5) Only valid point. But how many were following losses like this?

hopefully the devils lack that killer instinct that we've lacked all playoffs long in game 6. devils aint invinceable, they needed back to back ot wins to survive a mediocre panthers team, and brodeur is very beatable. we just need hank to be hank and absolutely cannot fall behind early or else we goin fishing.

Does this team really want to lose to the Devils?

How much does winning mean to them?

We have to THROW EVERYTHING TO THE NET AGAINST MARTY

So because you been here longer and rooted longer, i have no right to tell you to get out of here if you are gonna be negative? That isn't fair bro. I don't care how long you been rooting for the team and i don't care how long you been here and i'm sure your a decent guy but you are just being a bit negative imo.

You said you think they can and then you don't think they can win, that makes alot of sense. And i respect your opinion, i just disagree with it. We can agree to disagree i have no problems with that.

Your opinion on this is truly absurd. I've stood by this team through the darkest parts of their existence. I didn't climb on recently on like some bandwagon fans around here. You have the most limited and unsophisticated concept of being a fan I've ever seen on these boards. What's wrong with looking at reality? Why is that such a taboo idea? Why does expressing doubt automatically me from being a 'true fan'?

The idea that I person has to be blindly optimistic in order to be a 'true fan' is preposterous, and the fact that you can't see that is just sad. I mean, I guess it was easy to be a fan in the '98-'04 years right? And anyone who expressed pessimism at any point was not a true fan? And expressing doubt when Drury scored with 7.7 left would've made a fake, too, I assume?


I will be watching Game 6, and I will be desperately hoping the Rangers win. Expressing doubt about their ability to do so certainly doesn't make any less of a fan than a luminary like yourself.

Thank you. Honestly, when they do poorly I need a place to vent. When they do well, what am I going to right "yay, go Gabby!"? Everyone saw the goal, no need to post it. Also I'm not a Hank hater per se. I just hate the fact that I think he has the talent and technical skills to be Patrick friggin Roy but then chokes. First he likely chokes away the Vezina possibly in the last game of the season. Now he possibly choked away a finals berth. He can be so much more than he is and it pisses me off.

Seems they have more of a killer instinct than we do, just from loose observation on their previous 2 series'.

I dunno how this team will respond to a loss like this. If they build off of it and use it as further motivation then I think we can win both of the next two games. But if they take the likelier route, which is to get down on themselves and succumb to their aches and pains and mental lapses out of deflation and self pity, then this series is over.

Oh well. It'd be great if we pulled out another crazy series ending.
