They're going to win at least two for that false sense of hope, then deliver a crushing game 6 double OT loss at home.

So yeah this is a win.

I want to believe. I have a hard time believing. I can't believe. Nothing makes me believe, except Henrik Lundqvist. Even if the man does not put us in the game, his desire and determination to win... where you can just feel his soul... it's enough to make anyone believe.

That's my fruit opening.

Now, just battle and play one ****ing hard game, to finish the year or not. There is simply no ****ing better situation to play to the idea of playing as hard as you ****ing can to show some ****ing pride. LGNYFR.

The only sweep I want to see is the Rangers sweeping the next 4 games.

Do it boys!

It would be nice to win one at least. I just don't see this going past 5 and I'll be pretty surprised at this point if it makes it past 4. I'm not really even too enthusiastic about the game tonight.

reason to believe.. Providence Bruins had a 3-0 series lead and lost the series.. lets do the same to the Boston Bruins


3-2 Rangers OT win.. goals by Brassard (OT) Hagelin and Kreider

Just win one ****ing game please. Boston is better but they arent that much better to sweep them in the second round.

If the Rangers get swept and show little heart than we have bigger problems. I dont expect that to happen.

I hope Torts allows Richards to fail, give him close to 15 minutes tonight - instead of protecting him.

It's way to late for power play suggestions but whatever. If I'm Torts and the Rangers get a power play I put out the next line in the rotation.

So if the Brassard line draws a power play I put the Stepan line out next, with the 2 defenseman that are up next. If it's the 4th lines turn that's the line you put out. Same deal with the defenseman. 5 on 5 we are either we aren't getting outworked (most of the time) so treat the power play like a 5 on 5 situation.

I hope the Rangers win tonight but if they don't they don't. I'll say this though. If the Rangers win tonight they can start sowing that little seed of doubt in the Bruins head. They've blown a 3-0 lead before, their AHL team just blew a 3-0 lead. The organization has some issues closing teams out of a series. Do I think the Rangers come back? No way but lets make them sweat a little.

Gunna order a pie, get some cans, kick back and watch this plane go down. It's all gravy at this point.

I'd feel better if Boston and their AHL team HADN'T lost 3-0 leads recently. I think they are going to come out even harder tonight to put the Rangers away to disprove this talk.

Can't hurt. I've been saying that for years, play it 5 on 5, they'll actually have more men on the puck than their PP scheme does (whatever that is). To me, thats the biggest problem. Not enough urgency, no outmanning the other team with numbers consistently (or at all in some cases).

Agree about the doubt.

i would love if this team came out in the 1st period hitting and trying to start some physical play.. but this team is not that physical and soft. so i wont be shocked if the Rangers dont have a physical edge at the start.

Hard to take they blow 4 in a row is just as hard to believe they win the next 4 but if the team that played the Caps in game 6 shows up tonight it's a start. When Steps and Brass are your points leaders this team has huge flaws..

The Rangers would need some series **** to go their way to win this series. They would need to win 2 road games in a row.

That right there is an immense undertaking for this team.

LOL

But alas, just get one at home for the paying fans who endured the lockout and came back to support the team.
