  1. Either the Stars are going to score within the first 4 minutes of the game or Lundqvist will shut them out again…until the midway point of the game…

  2. Grabner is not done yet …with scoring. Mika will pick where he left before trauma, Nash is good as he could, Staal notwithstanding, we have finally the original, planned roster, so, future is bright and promising again. Or is it? I’m very excited, for change…

  3. Ho hum. Just another assist by the playmaker Zuccarello.

    For a guy who preaches that certain players shouldnt be judged by goals alone, he’s awful quick to criticize the leader of the Rangers in points.

  4. I don’t want to blame Lundqvist on the second one but even I knew that pass was coming through. He should’ve pushed out to the guy in front’s stick amd limited the shot. Not good all around I guess.

  5. That last is a save that HL has to make. Yeah defensive f*up but didn’t everyone know where the shot was coming from?

  7. The with the breakout pass for the third. And another D breakdown. And more soft goaltending, even if he did keep them at 1-0 for a while. Got to get out of town and get something going in Toronto.

  8. Also what happened to the speedy team supposed to get the puck when dumped into offensive zone? That so rarely works. Why do they bother with that play?

  10. I was going to say the period turned on The’s moronic penalty, but the Stars were handing the Rangers’ asses to them well before that, right from the second set of shifts. The moronic penalty sure didn’t help, though. Starting games well at home seems beyond their grasp for the moment.

  11. I know they have been this season, Norm. But they are all around sucking right now. I don’t expect them to just flip the switch because they’re on the road. These guys have some serious soul searching to do.

  12. I said it the other night, if Lundqvist is the rangers every game goalie now because of the injury to raanta, the rangers could find themselves out of the top 8 in a month.

    IMHO they give up the puck too easily – need to have more patience, not just play cycle game with blind passes behind.

  15. Look – Staal hasn’t found net in 5 years. He can’t keep the puck in unless it comes directly to him. He’s slow. He has a problem getting back and when he gets there, he plays shuffleboard. His next serious hit or even serious bump of an opponent will be his first.

  19. E3, you’ve got the review on this one? Unless there’s another volunteer?

    I’m sorry. I’ve been so swamped at work that I get home late, listening to the radio, and then I’m doing kid bedtime routine through the second period.

  20. This is an embarrassment. Not to us but to themselves. It looks like no-one of these guys every played together before amd they all hate each other. No grit. No nothing. At the very least this game should piss you off enough to beat up some guys. Wtf?

  21. Thunderous boos, even from this usually disinterested, cell-phone jerked crowd. Years ago, three guys would come down from the old blue seats and beat the chit out of anyone in skates and a Ranger uniform who tried to get through the tunnel.

  22. AV: ‘We had a good practice yesterday and I thought we had some good looks tonight. Couple of obvious errors maybe, but the puck wasn’t bouncing our way. I won’t dwell on it. We’ll get ’em tomorrow. That’s it guys?”

  31. I’m just catching up….love Roussel!

    Also love the av and hank apologists here, spare me!!

    2nd stars goal bad play by Holden, all skjel had to do was take the body and separate the star from the puck but he went all staal and no body contact.

    3rd goal zucc just lost

    4th goal shows why skjel is going to be a good NHL D man…in a couple of years. Kid is lost in The D zone. No wonder his partners always have skjelitis.

  33. Can’t bring myself to read everything- too crazy. But I have a serious question. Can Lundqvist go to Hartford for a conditioning stint? Seems like he really needs some work away from the bright lights…I’m also getting really worried that there is something physically wrong with him. Yuck. But at least it’s 7-6 so LGR!

  39. Imagine what it must be like to be a Ranger forward knowing it may take 5 goals a night to get 2 points! I don’t care how bad the D is gotta sit Lundqvist! Focus and confidence obviously gone! 8.5 mil.?

  40. I thought it was suicide when the rangers (sather) extended Lundqvist to all those years for 8.5. I wanted the rangers to trade lundqvist at the time and said so and got killed on here. How is that looking now folks.

  41. AV: “We’re not blocking the passes in front of our net.” A large part of the PROBLEM is that we are pathetically playing shuffleboard and not taking the man in front of Henrik, and AV seems to condone this. I’m losing patience with him.

  42. As this game sets in, I care less about the loss & more about the balless reaction to being intimidated by the likes of Benn and others. This team has no heart, except maybe Zucarrello.
