If you think the PP is beneficial you gonna have a bad time.

He has a bad shot and isn't a good passer. It's really unacceptable for him to be out on the powerplay except for taking faceoffs.

I really don't get why the one guy that shoots every chance he gets on the PP is not out there on a 5 on 3, nevermind every other powerplay....

I thought it was common sense to put a guy with a 99 mph bomb on the PP... Guess not though.

most inept PP in the league. What a joke

we don't deserve to advance. Things need to change. I don't give a crap about mediocrity. I want the Cup, and this ain't gonna do it.

Think about how bad our powerplay is and then wonder how 7 teams were worse in the regular season.

The real danger is that we know there is a Ranger penalty coming up soon, and that Capitals powerplay

Entirely true, but I guess he at least tries to use it.

I see you have your usual optimism. I hope you're not like this at parties.

Random person: "Kershaw, what do you do?"

Torts after game 3: Moore is running our PP!

Torts for game 4 and 5: Nahhhh, nevermind.

If this powerplay costs us the game....

Seriously. I was so disgusted with that **** powerplay. Not one good look. Cally taking bad angle shots, what else is new? Where the **** was Moore and why were Girardi, Beaver, and Del Zaster out there for so long?

There is no reason for Boyle to be on the powerplay.
Last year, we had Callahan in front of the goal, and he was top of the league in powerplay goals. It doesn't make any ****ing sense

I hope you're either joking, or just irrational out of frustration. We have very talented players, but they have no idea how the hell to work a freaking power play. They constantly stand still and don't shoot. I saw Richards hold the puck for about 5 seconds when he had a decent lane to shoot and look for a deflection, but he just held onto the puck. I understand if you have a player directly in front of you to pass it, but with that, you move yourselves to create a lane.

The Rangers just aren't capable of creating any sort of consistent offense on the power play. It's like they throw crap on the wall and hope some of it sticks rather than finding something that works and to be consistent with it. This isn't like the Isles power play yesterday where they had numerous quality chances but couldn't punch it in, this power play looks plain bad. And this is on home ice, too!

Cally has been in front of the net a TON this year, including in this series.

If they continue playing like this, it's probably 50/50 on who wins. Which is fine.
