Make the Playoffs and lose to pittsburgh, or dont make the playoffs and hear it from your islander friends, but Torts gets fired...I will take either.
my problem with this team is you couldn't pay them to adapt. Markstrom, LIKE MASON (another bs loss) WILL NOT be beaten high. so what do we do? shoot high. Markstrom has a weak 5 hole and has a hard time with rebounds. What do we do? stay away from the net. They just keep doing what doesn't work and I just don't get it.
Just will throw it out there... Fla has the worst PK in the league, and the Rangers go 0 for 3. joke
Just wondering... who honestly sees the Rangers beating Carolina on Thursday? That is a game they lose 9 times out of 10.
This pisses me off so much, we could have been in 6th place, but now it looks like we are stuck in 8th, if we even make it. Fuck you torts
Torts loss. period. Nash 19 goals 21 assists PLUS 16, but yeah, he's worried about tee time. ridiculous.
losing to the panthers aint Nash. its fucking torts and his insistence on being right, no matter how wrong he is
We will have the 8th seed and promptly be ousted by Pitts. This is what this team has been "playing" for throughout the season. We will probably wait until a shootout on game 48 to decide whether we are in or out.
Disgusted by the performance tonight... No excuse for 0 points out of this game. Torts can go to hell, fuck him
absolutely no need to pull the goalie in that scenario either. I can't wait till sabermetrics catches up with hockey and coaches start to realize that pulling the goalie is probably only a good idea with about 20-30 seconds left
what a GD awful game for Callahan - what a choke job tonight. Everyone looked nervous expect ZUCC...what a useless penalty by Richards that cost the game - there was a fucking guy back you don't need to take that penalty...
I guess Nash was out late last night, he was trash tonight... and has been for a couple of games now
when pyatt has more ice time than Nash, u have to ask questions. Torts has been shoving pyatt down our throats all year. i just dontt get it
We suck... what a joke... Glorious opportunity... I blame this one on Torts... As a coach, do something, he left with a timeout in his pocket and a horrible loss. Losing the season series to the PANTHERS.... fucking joke
@Zelrio you clearly didn't watch the game. those two goals were garbage deflections that nobody would've saved.
@Josh6 didn't Brassard score on the PP? so 1-3, lol
@AnnoyingJoe Torts received a text message, saying play it out until the game at the Garden against the devils... need to build it up
@AnnoyingJoe Torts is a joke, as is every coach in NY sports besides Coughlin. For me Rex Ryan is an awful coach and so is Girardi. Just add torts to that list, he is a scumbag also
@Josh6 whos nash
@Josh6 He has reserved some tee times as per usual.
@AnnoyingJoe deservedly slow, he was trash tonight
@Josh6 I am biting my tongue because everyone on her knows how I feel about him...
@Josh6 fuck that. he's their best player, besides hank
@AnnoyingJoe the only player torts doesnt play based on their "play" is DZ (who is the worst player on the team) and Nash was awful tonight. I think this team looked past this game and got burned. The usual this year, and its a disgrace
