Montreal is frustrating Boston the same way that they frustrated us. Look out.

I don't know how the Rangers won that last game, after they scored the 2 goals, it was Pittsburgh the rest of the game. Plus Rangers are not a great OT team. I mean the Rangers had to score twice in OT just to beat them, lol.

What about Boston? 4 Goals in less than 9 mins? Damn.

I want to see the Rangers win, but still have this dark cloud over my head with the whole trade thing. Not seeing #24 on that team anymore is really killing me.

The Rangers, frankly, have everything you need to beat the Penguins. Three wins and their necessary mission for this season is over.

Gotta say, as much as I really would love seeing Richards lift the Cup again, the MSL factor is pretty much the perfect antidote to it. Fantastic conflict.

Fleury has still been letting in a softie here and there, and the Rangers bottom 6 seem to be doing pretty well. I think Rangers take this series, but who knows with Crosby and Malkin on the ice.

If Fleury just played like an average goalie, Pittsburgh would win this series. Unfortunately, he is a mess. For proof, just look at the OT goal from game 1.

MSL lifting the cup again would basically be saying, it's ok to screw other people to succeed and to get what you want. So he is sending a great message to these young players.

So people back to MSL bashing after the shut out last night.

Rangers get rid of their best PP goal scorer and they wonder why the PP has struggled.

I am torn. My head says let Rangers get to ECF and get swept by Boston (so we get their 1st), and I hate Pittsburgh. But, for one time, and 1 time only I want to Pens to win the series (then get beat in ECF).

Are they ripping into St. Louis. I stopped checking the thread after they ripped into Lundqvist for giving up a breakaway goal to Crosby.

And they're not flukes. Fleury is looking dangerously not-Fleury-like.

Yeah they want the trade reversed.

Rangers PP went 0/5 tonight, and has become a train-wreck.

You guys saw what Cally brings to the PP, and that imo, is what is missing from the Rangers PP.

Let's be honest, the PP was complete **** in the playoffs even with Callahan. Tampa is the last team to be talking about a good PP from what we saw this season. I can't believe Nash still has people defending him.

I was crying after seeng the first 2 periods of the game 3 and did not watch the end.
Don't see the Rangers getting anything going in GM 4 or 5 ..

So - with Tampa out and NYR getting blown out by MA Rofleury "my playoffs" will be over quickly

Rooting for Anaheim in the west - but they are not in good shape right now, too ;-) (as COLORADO already out)

Every single team I cheer for got wiped out in the 1st round. The second isn't looking much better so far.

I'm not picking anybody else.

Don't know if I agree, it was around 30% which is excellent, but when you only play 4 games it is not a big enough sample. Looking at the regular season both of Tampa's PP and PK had gotten better since the trade deadline.

As per Nash, it has gotten to become a joke now.

Our post-trade deadline PP was really good, on the whole, if I remember right. I think next year we'll split time a little more evenly between two units, although Stamkos might play on both of them.

The most persistent problem with our PP, I think, is zone entry. We relied way too much on that bust-in-and-then-leave-it-at-the-blueline move, and it was pretty predictable. That's something the coaching staff has to tackle.

The Rangers are a joke. Always try to get the most hyped name out there. Always end up shooting themselves in the foot.

One of my biggets peeves is our zone entry, both on PP and even strength. I never get the feeling we're doing it with any confidence, and sometimes it looks like without a plan (e.g. just dump in, half ass chase).
