  2. lundqvist!!! OY Vey!!!! Got to make that save, looks like lundqvist’s legs a little slow getting them down to the ice, not to mention his stick blade.

  3. Must score or seasons over?

    What do you mean must score?

    Bc Rangers can’t come back from
    A one goal deficit in the next 45 minutes?

  4. Faux
    Because rangers have zero spark…no guys that throw some hits to get the building jumping…no energy from the coach on down…no home ice advantage to see here

  5. Man, I would rather hear MSG announcers talk about what Rangers are doing wrong versus how hard working, talented, and young the Leaves are.

  6. I’ve said it a few times on here. Give Gorton time to fix the mess Darth sather left, not going to happen overnight, going to take time but I have all the faith in the world with Gorton, can’t say that about Darth Sather.

  7. Yes. I hate to say it, but Hanka has to go. Like Girardi, I cherish everything he has done for this team, but at $8.5 million per year, he eating up huge cap space for a rapid decline.

    We can say what we want about Fatso, but he never flamed out like Hank is doing here.

  8. Maybe they’ll try harder and be better in the 2nd lol! Maybe they need to drink more coffee before home games. Hank is just not the same anymore. It uses to be with him in net we had a chance to win every game. Now when he’s between the pipes we have a better chance to lose everything game! Might need to score 5 tonight or it’s loss # 14!

  9. This pattern, in which I saw dead people last thread, will either work itself out before the Spring or hang on us like a Lungbatross.

  10. I like what gorton has done this season giving double bubble every kind of player he wants. No excuses for the jackwagon coach who has this team playing worse and worse every season of his tenure.

  11. Hmmm rangers sucking on faceoff again…someone said at the beginning of the season that would be an issue for the rangers. I wonder who that was? 😉

  12. You like his hair and face??

    What better way to admire his looks than by sitting him on bench. Now.

    Lindqvist has been absolutely BRUTAL

  13. Coming in tonight, Rangers scoring by period:
    34 54 55
    Goals against:
    34 36 36

    Frustrating for fans, but I guess it beats the alternative pattern. The fix is obvious: stop wearing the stupid focus-group, third-jersey pajamas in Original Six matchups.

  14. Not scoring on PP, mediocre goaltending, surprising lack of passion and efforts (so much for tonight tribute inspiration), countless mistakes with and without puck. Good bye 5th in metro?

  15. Hanks letter to his younger self: “and when you give up 3 softies against the leafs during the 2016-2017 season, always remember that it’s okay… your hair is tremendous..”

  16. He does this all the time, usually between much tougher saves. If you’re going to get beat 5-hole on a deflection or screen, at least leave your blade on the ice, make that triangle smaller. Purely technical, easy to do, loss of focus when it’s not happening.

  17. I wonder if Graves would make a good coach. Tell you what, his players would never take a night off. I could see him flipping tables…

  19. No way doodie. You are not putting eye glasses on Hank even if he’s near blind. Those eyes will never be obscured by a pair of frames. Maybe contacts. But they must be a deep shade of blue so as to bring more color out….

  20. A problem with this spot-them-two, save-energy-for-the-end program: you don’t always score when you dominate.

  21. Why no Hank tomorrow? He owns game twos. It’s the game ones he needs to be pulled from, just as period ones.

  22. I know there’s still time but this is a game that you just DON’T lose. The Giants in 2005 after their owner died went out and whooped the redskins. I’m sorry but this is shameful.

  23. So, what is good about a save if rebound of it goes right to the tape of opposed player. Sam is now so surprise and excited when Hank make a save and very casual when puck is in our net. Have to state again, that besides other things, their goalie is better than our in this game…

  24. Klein skates in molasses, sucks worst D man ever.
    Skjel skates like the wind, perfect player, never makes mistakes

  25. Is it me or do the Rangers typically lose special occasion games?
    I still remember jags apologize to Gretzky cause he scored on his retirement game so nyr lost. I thought that was classy move

  26. At this point in their careers Klein is a better D man. He is not playing nearly as well as he has in previous seasons.

    Skjel is very overrated at this point in his career by many here…and so is speed.

  27. Yeah, we always suck on special occasions. You think management would’ve figured that out already amd limited them as much as they could. Though, sadly, tonight had to happen.

  28. Sound of jackhammers in Rangers locker room, trainers attempting to chip off 100 lbs. of rust before heading to Montreal. Smell of alternate jerseys burning also noted.

  29. I rate Grabner’s speed highly. And Kreider’s and Miller’s. Skjei does’t know what to do with his yet.

    Exactly. It’s not just about speed, so many more aspects to hockey than just speed as you well know coach 😉

  31. True, Wick, but you can’t coach speed. You can help players improve their skating and edge control, but some guys got the jets, some don’t. Skjei does, and once he gets some confidence, for the Rangers or elsewhere, he could become something.

    I’d agree with that. You can certainly get guys to improve their speed and get faster, but some guys start off “faster” than other. You also can’t teach size or tenacity…some guys have it, some don’t.

  33. The deserving team win this game, and they were bolstered by 2 softies allowed by Shampoo Boy. Dairy Queen needs to name a Blizzard after Henrik. Going to be a shame when the guy goes into the hall of fame having never won the cup. Just like Eddie Giacomin.

  34. Fast is a classic team guy who makes you wish either that he had the talent of a player like Hayes or that Hayes could play with that kind of tenacity.

  35. Hank probably should have stopped the first one, but not the rest.

    This played lazy tonight. Lost one-on-one puck battles.
    i remember Hayes, Miller and klein just passing to the other team in the offensive zone. SAam called them all takeaways, but they were giveaways. This Av coached team is getting soft.

  36. Tomb I agree. 1st goal was really soft – a bad read. 2nd one Hank coulda/shoulda/ maybe had. Other 2 not so much – perfect deflection by the Captain on 3rd and no chance on the 4th after a great initial save. What happened to clearing the crease? Lousy game but a beautiful tribute to Detective McDonald.

  37. and the Steve Mcdonald extra effort award probably goes to Kreider tonight, but the rest of the team made up for it. no extra effort tonight.

    There is a game tomorrow…………
