We are just not good enough...we belong where we are in the standings. An inconsistant team, not enough fire power, and a non-existant power play. we need to get ready for an early exit from the playoffs, if we make it at all. Look forward ot major roster changers this summer.
The second goal really stunk, can't keep retreating when you have a guy right in front of you. It's not like the guy was carrying speed to the outside or anything. Talking to you Wade. That had nothing to do with fatigue, just dumb.
Auld made a nice stop on Naslund at the end of the game. we didnt have many chances but the ones we did he was there to stop them. Hank should have challenged Comrie on the first goal instead of sitting in the net and he should have had the second one, off his arm and in. granted the defense didnt give him any help but i still think Auld outplayed him.
False. We didn't put any quality shots up. We scored an ugly goal. All shots were in close or ****** point shots.
We put quality shots up... Auld was good. Antropov missed on the breakaway, Callahan hit the post, Drury was wide open in the slot and shot it into the pads, and Naslund wasted a few really nice chances. Rangers had their chances. It's like they did 90% of the work and didn't have enough to finish the last 10%
Coming from an Islander fan, caught the game tonight:
You guys have a solid lineup. There just HAS to be more of a contribution from Gomez, Drury, Redden on a nightly basis.
Wade Redden is such a dumb hockey player. His passes are too soft, his shot is easy to stop and he's so inept at running a powerplay. If he was even HALF of the player he was in Ottawa.. you guys would be that much better.
Just getting Gomez and/or Redden working at half to 3/4 efficiency would make you guys such a hard team to beat in the playoffs.. but these two are just so lascsidasical.
I honestly believe Redden's hockey IQ has dropped over the last 4 years. Maybe it's drugs?
