"We start over. That is the best thing for us right now is to get on a plane and play.
Some things, obviously, there has to be some discussion on certain situations, but we have to start over." - John Tortorella
Too many times over the past few seasons have we heard the words "We weren't ready to play tonight" or "we better come out and be ready to play".
After hearing that dozens and dozens of times, the leadership of the team has to be seriously questioned. Coach included.
I just dont know what it is with this team. You have to expect a crappy performance like this a few times a season, coming back from a west coast swing, 3 games in 4 nights, 5 out of 7 or something. But this one has no excuse, 4 days to get up for a divison rival on home ice, who you are fighting for a playoff spot with - and coming off of a 9 out of a possible 10 point run to boot.
Its mind boggling. And its happened year after year. The lack of consistency runs up and down this squad and its extremely bothersome. To prove my point, the Rangers will come out tonight and play hard- and they might actually win. But none of it will matter. The only thing thats consistent around here, is that the same sad saps will keep watching and hoping - and you have to start to think when that is going to stop as well.
