Great effort from the boys last night after a shaky first period.
As Dan Girardi repeatedly turned the puck over as if he was being paid by the mafia, as Marc Staal had the awful turnover that led to the Montreal goal, and as Brady Skjei continued to excel in this series, all I can think is please tell me why we need more stay at home liabilities, er, I mean, defensemen instead of puck movers.
Also, Lundqvist was tied for your first star, but I didn’t think he was that good. First goal was really soft, second goal wasn’t that much better, and he didn’t really face much pressure after the first period.
Vote totals were much better! Almost 50 voters.

Game 5, Eastern Conference Quarter Finals
Series tied at 2-2.
Rangers vs. Canadiens -7:00 PM MSG, USA, 98.7 FM. Online streaming is available on nbcsportss.com or the NBC Sports app. Be warned, it’s not Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro anymore. It’s Chris Cuthbert and… Pee air.
The Rangers bounced back in a big way in game 4, putting forth an effort that would have seen them sporting no less than a 3-1 advantage had they put it forth over the entire series. That being said, they still only scored 2 goals, the PP is still 0 for the series, and Stepan, Hayes, Zibanejad, Miller, and especially Kreider have to be much better.
I’ll be watching tonight’s game on a delay because of parenting responsibilities. Doesn’t RR Jr. know that it’s the playoffs!? I didn’t even edit this part from the last game. Clearly, this is a HAV.

HAV at it. Go Time post will be up at 6:45.
Carp is going to be writing his own review today, which saves me the trouble (not that I was going to anyway). UPDATE: Carp’s review can be read here
If they had that effort over the last 5 periods, we would be no worse than 3-1 and maybe even we would have had the sweep.

Game 4, Eastern Conference Quarter Finals
Montreal leads series 2-1.

After one of the most listless and pitiful displays I have ever seen from the Rangers in the playoffs, the Rangers try to rebound to avoid going down 3-1 in the series. After lamenting that the team played only 50 minutes in game 2, the team showed us how little they could try by doing nothing for all 60 in game 3. What has been a legitimately excellent series for Lundqvist has been overshadowed by the poorness of the team in front of him.

There you heard it. E3 is putting the team on his third person back and has declared we are heading back to Montreal knotted up at 2 all.
Clean slate, grab it!!
Why bother writing a review when their effort on the ice is even more half-assed than this blog? They’re an embarrassment.
