Looks like the Rangers weren't quite as good on faceoffs tonight:
Richards, 7 of 15 (47&); Stepan 9 of 20 (45%); Boyle, 9 of 18 (50%); Halpern 2 for 2 (100%)
I had to miss the game, but super psyched for the win. I've read about it, and I await the highlight videos. Glad Stepan managed to net one again, and amazed at the unique game Hagelin is putting together. Sounds like Nash was pretty good tonight, right? What else did I miss?
Seems like we go into a shell in the last 5 every time we have a lead. Other than that and the first minute hard fought game, and the pp looked better today, actually moved the puck in the third
@JoshKaye -- I didn't know you make music !
The worst thing Torts can do is keep Asham and Halpern on the bench completely now that Powe is out. Asham maybe isn't as important but Halpern has looked good and I'd feel better with him out playing than him on the bench doing nothing.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG that looked ugly... I hope hes okay.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG he is standing on his head, but if we keep getting opportunities they will start to go in. Hopefully.
@slapshot13j i think it was just insurance if Nash couldn't go
@AnnoyingJoe More inclined to believe it was a dodo.
@cb1 so does he go back down tomorrow?
