Lundquist is having a bad game. It happens. Can you [mod: people] relax? We're still outplaying them and the only reason they've caught up is because the refs suck so hard that NASA should get in there and harness the suction for infinite clean energy.

Emery was real good in the 2nd, keep getting those chances, and they will get two more by him. D and Hank need to tighten it up. Don't quit on this one yet guys.

NYR don't generate enough goals on rebounds and goal mouth scrums with the build of this team any more. I'd advocate going for one in the third, but that's not what the team is built for any more.

God the rebound on that 3rd goal was just awful. It was barely even moving, dude couldn't have covered that?

I don't care when his new contract starts. When you pay him that kind of money, you expect him to play like a player who deserves that contract.

Hank needs to realize the situation, and step up. Emery realized the situation. He knew that he couldn't give up any more goals if his team was going to have a chance, and he played a great period. He stood on his head, while Hank played like a lazy bum.

Callagraves is a guy that thinks we're worse than our record, despite the fact that we have one of the best goal differentials in the league, one of the best possession teams in the league despite our horrible start, and we outplay the other team on a constant basis. I take his opinion with a grain of salt.

Henrik is not getting outplayed.

My only criticism is that he could've poke checked that 1st goal. Otherwise he's been fine, it's the skating of this team that has them behind right now.


So you thought it was good that he was standing outside the crease like that? Really?

He didn't give HIMSELF a chance.

This should be nothing new to us, to be truthful. Consistency is and conditioning seem to be our weakness for years now.

As far as Nash, I see why folks call him overrated. With his talent, he should be one of the best players on ice. Yet he's invisible way too much.
That first goal is the one he should have had. Need to take away the ice on a break-away, he was out of position to start with, almost past the first post.

We are definitely not outplaying them. Their forecheck was way more effective than ours in the 2nd period.

See what? Why do you think the Flyer threw hit right into his pads from that angle? Have you ever tried swallowing a puck with the pad when you make a kick save? You can't do it. Where do you think it'll end up? In the stands?

this is the issue right here. Flyers have stepped up there game. Lundqvist had hardly any work last game...

he NEEDS to make a big save or two. he's a superstar in his position, but i'm seeing time after time, when it counts this guy does not come through...

Apparently nobody cares when his contract starts when its pointed out that its next year, but everyone cares when they mistakenly say he's on it this year day after day after day.

I've said it all season. He really hasn't been that bad. I think he's had an okay season, but for a player that just got a contract with a yearly salary higher than any other goalie, he needs to step up and play like he deserves the money he got, otherwise it was a bad investment.

How quickly those "only Staal and G came to play" faded out. Easier to pin the game on one player.

It actually hit his stick. And plenty of goalies eat up those rebounds. Hank's rebound control has been horrendous since he has been a Ranger.

But he's your Swedish hero so he can do no wrong, I guess.

My friends swears that it hit the shaft of Lundqvist's stick on the rebound. Thoughts?
