...with the Islanders, Washington and Winnipeg winning last night, sort of a big game for the Rangers tonight.
...despite where they are in the standings, I really do like the way this team has been playing after the deadline, so if they can clean-up the defensive breakdowns, I really don't see them having a problem getting in.
Well then the team that plays their heart out better show up tonight to play and leave that other team at home.
@TheNYRBlog Absolute must wins the next 2. Anything short of 4 points will seriously damage their hopes -- certainly of avoiding the Pens.
@TheNYRBlog I'd be more concerned about NJD than the Jets, but I'm most concerned about NYR winning games, that's all they need.
I agree Kevin. We've been playing excellent during the deadline, except for those d breakdowns. Without those, could've easily blanked TOR. And we ran into jesus christ in net against the Pens. All winable games. Only things I think need changing are we NEED a finisher on the 3rd line. Brassards passing skills and Hags ability to strip the puck off others and forecheck is going to waste because Boyle just can't finish for them. ALso, my god Pyatt needs to go.
A win tonight puts them in 6th...Is that right? Rangers have a game in hand on the fishsticks which doesn't catch up until next week's back to back. Washington will win the SE and the Rangers have 2 games on the Jets. Plus Ottawa is finally running out of steam. I think the Rangers are in good shape as long as they don't take periods off.
@TheNYRBlog good blog Kev!
Interviews like that are why I love Torts. Don't know why he gets so much hate around the league (and in our own fanbase...). "Oh, he swears!"
@sensiblemadman Nice work!
@tygalpin No people don't like him because he doesn't treat the press like kittens and puppies like most other coaches do. He tells it like it is and doesn't answer stupid questions. I, for one, applaud him!
@tygalpin I don't think it has anything to do with swearing its the fact that this team is loaded with talent and they're in eighth place behind teams like the islanders and senators. The play this season has been frustrating and his line choices have been questionable this season
@TheNYRBlog scratch that... no I don't.
@TheNYRBlog I'M SORRY!
@sensiblemadman Damn you!!!!!!!!!
