Can't wait till they get scored against 1st and lose the game. I'll be right here fellas. It will happen and it will happen with a large frequency.

Yes, I enjoy being right. I am incredibly childish and I don't give a ****!

I'm right. The rest of you are wrong and I'm just so damn awesome...and clever. I'm so smart, and funny, and sexy, and brilliant, and I'm right. Don't forget that everyone. I can put two and two together and get four. I'm so proud of myself. Allow me to bask in the glory of being...right. Always.

Since nobody else wants to pat me on the back and congratulate me I'll just do it myself.

And when you think about it...the Devils managed to score first three different times. @ 0-0, @ 1-1, and @ 2-2. That's pretty damn impressive that they ended up winning tonight. I think we're on to something here.

Oh, I'm still right.

Positives:

~ We got 2 goals from the backend, congrats to Danny G on his first of the season, and Daft Punk's first since the opener.

~ Kreider continues 1st line caliber play. Rad. Obviously, he's our best producer per-game, thus far.

~ Zucc is a much better player since his benching.

~ Just thought of all the great jokes if Zuccarello ever gets a SC ring.

~ Ryan "MacTruck McDonagh is 3rd overall in NYR scoring with 11 points [4, 7], with an assist tonight; 1 point ahead of the Manimal.

~ People are so busy arguing about trivialities, no one is crapping on Boyle for no reason. Once again our best guy on Face-offs, tonight by far, at 60%. :-)

~ I hear that they're renovating the Garden!

I would have no idea what Daft Punk was if reddit didn't exist, haha. I'm glad Staal has a truly safe visor though, obviously. Hopefully his goal this evening can spark a little offense in him, that would be a big help. I thought he looked good tonight.

How can you get on Hanks case THIS MUCH after a soft goal when he's been outstanding in the past few games he's played in?

LOL after rewatching the game: that amazing save on Ryder in the 1st pretty much cancels out his "soft" goal so there you go.

Well if he didn't let any goals in we would have won by 2-0 or even more.
Same with every other game.

How can you blame Girardi on the 3rd goal? He played the 2-on-1 pretty good, and his shot block would've put the puck to the corner, if not for McDonagh, who also was responsible for the 2-on-1.

By and large this was a good game that showed improvement from both teams since the ugly early days of the season.

These games are always touted as Marty vs Hank, and rightfully so. Both teams tested the opponents goalie and both goalies made some great saves.

But at the end of the day, Marty made enough big saves to win and bested Hank this time around.

I'm not too disappointed, the team is playing well as a whole and has done nearly a complete 180 from the debacle at the beginning of the year. Its not often that we lose the goaltending battle and with the way Hank has been playing it's still not something I expect to see very often.

A lot of people going a bit overboard with some comments about "must win" game against Montreal after loosing this one. Please, it's November. The Rangers looked good again last night generating a ton of scoring chances and again looked like the faster team out there! Marty just played great and it is tough to win when the other goalie plays to the level Marty did. I think we all got a taste of what it is like when Hank steals games for us.

Couple of negatives though- Pouliot. What on earth is he doing basically axe chopping the legs out from under the devils defenseman behind the net in the 3rd period. The puck is literally 200 feet from his goal when he took that penalty. Offensive zone penalties are inexcusable, especially in the third period!

Brassard- where on earth is he right now? I'd honestly like to see Brassard play with Miller and Pouliot( insert Nash or Hagelin here once Nash returns) as our 3rd line but I have to tell you, I'd really be tempted to scratch Brassard once Moore comes back if his play does not improve. He needs to be given a message that cruising around the perimeter of the ice not winning lose pucks and getting bumped off the puck so easily is not getting it done!

I'm sorry that this fact has made you so upset, but take it out on the NYR, not me.

If I told you that the it was "When the Rangers get scored on first they win the majority of the time", would you have started this argument with me? Probably not, because it's a positive towards the Rangers.

This board doesn't like to hear anything bad said about the Rangers. Even when it's staring them right in the face.
I really want this argument to die, but I have a terrible character flaw I can't have someone have the last word when they have no idea what they're talking about.

1) I concede "tend to lose" was a poor choice of words. I actually realized that after posting it. I used "tend" as a derivative of "tendency" but made it sound like a weak trend. "Usually lose" this season is better, hell "almost always lose" this season is better.

2) There are 2 incredibly frustrating things about arguing with you. One, is that you seem to not understanding statistical concepts that someone that has hit double digits in age should be able to understand yet feel the need to say you're 100% right. Two, is that you seem to think that people are disagreeing with you about the Rangers losing most of their games this season and/or in general or just don't want to hear bad things and are therefore mad. Meanwhile, every poster so far has flat out AGREED that they lose usually when they don't score the first goal. So either you're not wasting everyone's time by not reading their posts, have a reading comprehension problem, or perhaps, you're throwing a little strawman in there just so that you can be RIGHT and WIN your argument 100%. It's like arguing with a little kid.

I had two cups of coffee and my body is still not ready for this thread.

Also, still mad about the loss. Dovols, plus.

As far as the game goes. It's just incredibly frustrating, especially with 2 games coming up. If we win 1 of those games it will be some feat. That said this is the most impressed I've been with a Rangers offense in years. Only thing that was missing other than finish was a PP. This is the type of team I've been yearning for. Fast skating, good passing, creates good chances off the rush and forecheck. When Nash comes back, IMO this team will be really good. I'm holding out hope that Brassard didn't forget how to play hockey and Nash will wake him the **** up. We give up more chances against than in recent years, but honestly since we've started playing better we haven't been giving up more goals, even though Florida and NJ scored 3 each (bad offenses can score 3 sometimes, especially when they get great bounces and bad goals against). What people have been saying about the D being good enough and Lundqvist being good enough to not play the Torts system seems like it might be right. I still want to see the D play like it did for most of the Pitt game. I feel like the D hasn't been that good since then against worse opponent by far.

Please stop blaming the refs and linesman...starting to sound like Devils fans.

And luck...well teams make their own luck, nobody was complaining about luck when CBJ scored an own goal.

Soft goal by Hank, lettting a 4th liner beat you again...hard to say that the Rangers deserved to win here.

I had to re watch this game after watching it live. But the rangers had many scoring opportunities in this game. I felt that we were the better team. Our third and fourth line looks out of synch . Poul. Looks absolutely lost and bass. Hasn't been noticeable much.

I thought DZ had another good game and I was surprised to see Jägr so effective this game , should be interesting to see if he can keep it up for 82 games.

Only thing I would change is mash. Guy looks out of place and out of position a lot. You can see the effort, but he seems to be not good at reading the plays in the NHL .... Shame cause I love players that can hit and fight but he looks like he can't keep up with the pace

A big hearty LOL to the people blaming Girardi for the 3rd goal. That was on McDonagh, who made a bad read in both the neutral and defensive zone on that play.

Its tough to win hockey games consistently when a full 1/3rd of your forward corp is utterly useless. Brassard, Pouliot, Mashinter, and to a lesser degree Miller (he gets the benefit of the doubt because he should be down developing).
