Am I the only one that find that Lundqvist is looking a little sluggish the last couple of games?

He most definately is. We saw him being better than that.

Too busy carrying his team. He's made some huge saves. Rangers are pathetic. They need a new coach who's more offensively minded.

If the Rags can't handle the Bruins' 4th line...

Tick, tock

Looking for a hole in Rask with 1:36 to go?

Bruins are way too balanced for a lot of teams in this league. And they have some great depth.

Bruins sweep their way to a conference final...do not want.


Habs would have been a much better matchup.

Watching the Rangers play makes me sick. It must be hard to be a fan of this team. So pathetic offensively. Bye bye Torts.

Three Bruins mistakes trying to get the puck out of the zone. Will the Rags capitalize?

Or capitulate?

Would be something if Ottawa could come back in this series and beat Pittsburgh....Bruins are a great team....but not sure a team would have had such an easy route to the Conference finals facing Leafs, Rangers and Sens...Wasn't easy against Leafs but yet...it should have been much easier.

I tell you...not sure how it's going to end, but anybody see the comparision with their Cup run not too long ago? Tough 1st series...talk of firing Julien....win in OT and the rest is history. They were playing much better as the series progressed...as they are doing now.

And Bruins keeps coming back, coming back and coming back...How many times they have done it this year in the 3rd?

One of the Rangers' biggest weakness is one the Habs' biggest strength. Has anyone realized that they can't seem to hold the puck? like ever? They can't sustain pressure because their dmen don't have the vision to hold it and set it up. Markov and Subban I find excel at that part of the game. They can enter the zone, but hold the puck until their forwards get set up. The Rangers play hot potato with the puck. Get in, get rid of it. Its so painful to watch.

Imagine if the Bruins go really really far.....So not only you make a Raycroft for Rask trade. Not only you give them Hamilton and Seguin for the future. But you also give them the Cup or make them Cup finalist by losing a 3-goal lead in the 3rd....

Leafs are actually Bruins "B".

Eh...Bruins winning another Cup might send me off the deep end.

They're a very well coached team. Julien deserves a lot more credit than he receives....as much as I hate him.

Which brings the question....how the heck did they win against the Caps? The Capitals should all be fired for losing to that team...even with Lundqvist.

I... don't know. The Caps have a leadership issue.

I just hate the brand of hockey the Rangers play. So bloody passive and hope your goalie bails you out.

Richards should be bought out.

Actually, it's great for us 'cause it should push us to become much better. With Detroit coming in...Leafs and Sens improving, we will have no choice but to adapt and improve. And use the Bruins model whether we like it or not. Which is....have the greatest mix you can. And the greatest possible depth. Boston loses their D's, come in Krug and Bartkowski and nobody remembers who's missing. Of course....it helps when Chara is there. But he has his share of trouble and yet...they still win. Mix of talent, size and grit. Not sure anybody would disagree with that.

And Julien, well...I was amongst the few who said it to Bruins fans in their Cup run, even against us...Julien is the coach for them. They should give him a 10-year contract. Incredible how stupid some were to want to fire him in his 1st cup...and even this year.

In theory, yes..you're right. But I can see the Habs doing what they always do and completely ignoring other teams in the division and trying to do things their way...."We CAN win with a soft team!".

Bruins fans have just never liked him for some reason. He's a great coach. I used to really like him until he became a Bruin.

I would rather improve because of those other things, than have to see the evil ones win another cup. Two cups wins for them in recent history means we have to win two to be even.
