The way I see it we can't get on the team for lifeless, heartless play and then get on Girardi or Torts for this.

He was fighting for the full 60. Something more players need to do. It really sucks but it's part of that..

This brings me back to the 24/7 special when DZ gets suckered by Kopecky (I think?) and Rupp jumps all over him. The first question DZ asks the trainer is who jumped in for him. These things matter within a team. Seems like last years' roster was willing to do anything for each other. I miss Dubi.

The lack of response after their best defensemen gets slammed is what hurts my head.

To everyone saying "why was he out there?!" Remember that you're down to 5 defensemen, and really at that point in the game 4 because Marc is sick and HE'S the guy I wouldn't expect on the ice at that point in the game. Bickel, Stralman, and Gilroy are your remaining options. Bickel I'm pretty sure has never worked with the PK unit, Gilroy hadn't played on the PK until today, and Stralman is sort of a last resort. You want to keep some sort of pride in the game....

The game was a complete joke from every aspect. Let's not get carried away on these injuries, but if we're going to be missing MDZ, Girardi, and McDonagh for a long period of time that might be it for this year. Can't afford big time injuries like that during a lockout year.

Literally the only POSITIVE that would come out of major injuries for those 3 guys is that we'll probably get McDonagh for a bit of a discount when it's time to re-sign him this summer...

WHO GIVES A ****. The game was over, put out Thomas, Gilroy and Stralman. Anyone but your top players. Although Callahan hasn't played like a top player since before last year's playoffs...

Pride was long gone by that time.
The game was a low point of low points. When you do not deserve good luck, you do not get it.

Too much analysis going on at the micro level. It is at the macro level that the problem is. Something very wrong with this team.

Players need to start protecting themselves from hits like these. Was this hit worthy of a 2 minute penalty? Yes. Was it worthy of a suspension? I don't think so. However, McD knew Pac was coming, and he turned his back to the play. Lots of player pull this **** and they need to stop.

It wasn't suspension worthy, but wasn't clean either. Would have liked to see one of the guys stick up for the best skater on the team there for sure.

i think its borderline suspension worthy, however being that mac hit him earlier, the hit was clearly premeditated.

also no practice tommorrow, which is good since everyone really played their ***** off tonight and really need some rest, and what does it matter their play clearly dictates they dont need to practice.

Good lord, folks. Forget about worrying about a suspension for Pacioretty.
That is not going to help the Rangers. They missed the opportunity to make him pay right now, right here. Water under the bridge.

Now, all that we can do is hope that Ryan McD will be getting better soon.

That was my favorite Rupp moment while he was here.

Somebody on this team should have stepped in tonight. Absolutely anybody.

So...are we turning into the Buffalo Sabres in regards to not stepping up to protect our players?

Yep.

You can't win with this board.

You're either heartless, or stupid.

People saying it wasn't that bad of a hit are clueless. McDonagh was facing the boards. Not only did Pacioretty not let up on the hit see McDonagh was facing the boards, he also clearly left his feet. Just unnecessary.

But what's more upsetting is no one responded. In a game where we ended up losing 3-0 guys like Mashinter, Bickel, and Boyle should've stepped up and they did not. Only Boyle got in Moen's face at the end of the game when he crashed into Biron. The team is playing awful you think someone would step and drop the gloves at this point. We really do miss Prust.

This was the Black and Blue New York Rangers. Everybody wanted a piece of that ****. The New Jersey Devils flirted with the idea of out-toughing us on our home ice and that game plan lasted all of three seconds.

What the hell has become of this team? I understand that the guys on the ice at the time of the hit were really not amongst the toughest - Richards, Gaborik etc. though seeing one of them jump in might have kick started our season - but why did Mashinter or Bickel or Boyle not do anything at any point to redress the balance? Has Torts neutered all these guys? Have they given up caring? Take an instigator and a game misconduct if needs must, even if you end up giving up a powerplay that costs the team 2 points! We just got bullied by a team that gets bullied, and the players' disinterest has been evident far too many times this season already.

Lets not try to lick our wounds by posting videos/laughing at Pacioretty's injury against the Bruins.

I remember that one. Rupp was great.
i just did not think that losing Rupp (or Prust) meant no balls.

Yeah, you aren't. I'll reiterate again because I've seen a few of them lately.

Posting that injury as a means of ridicule isn't acceptable. Don't do it again. This goes for everyone.

Shameful.
FWIW, that's just how pacioretty looks.

Whatever happens, not here to discuss or defend max, i'll let league decide but I hope Ryan doesn't have a concussion and whatever the case is, I hope he has a full recovery.

I think the most concerning thing is I can't decide which of your last two questions are more accurate. Could be either.

Pretty embarrassed to be a Ranger fan.
