Lundqvist, Girardi and Del Zotto were brutal and let us down today. The rest of the team played a good first 40 and fell apart after the 2nd. This series isn't over, but we Henrik needs to be better and that's the end of it.
Girardi was a -5. And the PP, despite being better, is now 2 for 36. It's not even funny anymore, it's just sad.
It's just... I mean, what the ****? For real though.
Ugliest game we've seen from this team in the defensive zone in a very long time. I mean, what the **** were they doing all game!? It was ridiculous.
I really wanted a split in Boston because (even before the series I was thinking this) I think there is no way the Rangers take both on home ice. I don't have the confidence in this team at all right now... and I haven't in some time.
That series win against Washington buys Torts some more time, but holy **** Hank is going to have to be perfect the rest of the way for the Rangers to have the slightest chance.
Anyone still think that Dan Girardi is this teams best defensemen? Is there anyone out there who still doesn't think Marc Staal is the integral piece in this teams D corps?
I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but, truthfully, I didn't expect the Rangers to get really far. Yeah, yeah, anything can happen in the playoffs..but we are talking about Torts, Sully, dump and chase, playing safe here.
Last season, most people on here said our PP did us in in the postseason. For crying out loud, I'd offer both my nipples for that very same PP now (17.8>5.2).
Coming back from 2 series being down 0-2?
Look at the bright side, guys, this is the beginning of the end for Torts. Next season, I expect the Rangers to **** the bed for a bit which will make Torts and Sully get the pink slip.
