About what exactly?

Rangers are following Torts game plan to a tee.

I'm going to give you a preview "Caps made a big play, we didn't."

That is his mantra.

This is what I hate about the NHL. There is no need to dig into a bag of tricks. Be consistent.
The penalty is called on that all the time.
These refs today want to show how clever they are.

Wish the refs could be reviewed, and a fine applied.

I meant about the refs deciding to make a wrong judgement on a non-judgement call.

And also why exactly is that not reviewable? It's a black and white play - no different than 12 men or illegal touching in football which can be reviewed

exactly, they are so preoccupied with getting it deep rather than creating offense, the torts way. keep shuffling those pucks back and forth behind the net until you turn it over boyz!

I would LOVE this. We see players who try to avoid hits and end up getting their shoulder to make contact with the other player's head. If simple mistakes like that can be subject to fines and/or suspensions, why can't the mistakes of referees be too?

Torts is awesome? Here's a question for you: Lines cannot stay together for more than half a game. Why does the power play remain the same when it is freaking pathetic? Richards at the point? Horrible.

Penalties are not reviewable. For most of them, that makes sense since they are subjective. For objective ones like this, an argument could be made.

For all the complaints, I believe that if we win this, which is still quite possible, it's a brillant result that will have a pretty large effect on the Caps' mentality, they have been playing their game very very well and haven't been able to score. Going back home after that kind of 1-1 would be good enough for me.

That is, if we win.

How about not adjusting to the caps speed? How about instead of doing his soft 2-1-2(which isn't working), we clog the neutral zone? Counter attack from the red line out?

How about instead of trying to either loft pucks out of the zone or stretch pass, the Rangers make short passes to the red line?

Nah it makes too much sense. Better to have Hank try to win us the game and the Rangers try to get some sort of deflection off of Holtby by taking shots from the side of the net.
