The New York Rangers (0-2-0) lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins (2-0-0) by the score of 6-3, last night. For a box score, go to Yahoo! Sports.
...since the Rangers didn't bother showing up last night, I won't bother doing a game recap.
Trouble scoring, trouble clearing the zone, 1/2 the D flat footed....... what's the matter with you guys this is NYR hockey. We have been watching this for years now. Adding one player does not change this team. We're skating in circles. 2 games in and i'm not going to panic. Torts needs to find a way to get the team on track and he will. ....hopefully.
Hit on Kreider has me concerned tho
Nobody needs to flip out.
You know what the Rangers' record after 3 games last year was?
0-1-2 (and the Leafs started 4-0)
This team can still be the class of the East.
Bruins and Pens are good teams and this conference will be a battle all season.
If you don't believe that, then you're foolish.
Full disclosure, reason for no recap is Adam was supposed to do it but fell asleep during the game and didn't do it. Then I was too drunk when I got home from the game & too hungover this morning to do one myself. And to be honest I was so drunk at the game I don't remember much about it,
I love this site with a passion , it's my homepage on every device I have and don't even change it in the offseason but I have to admit I was disappointed no recap , I signed on first thing today o see about a Kreider update , I know hasn't been ne but atleast let us know that . Preach on brother but don't forget I count on you !! Please don't make me go to there official site for news I despise it !! Thanks lets go ranges
No offense, but man up bro. Are you not going to do a recap after every Rangers loss because you're mad? Even with the 1st game's recap, most of the points were pretty exaggerated. We go on this blog to see your analysis of the games, and we respect your opinion enough to want to know what you thought of it. To just say that they didn't show up at all is kind of a cop-out. And it's not true. At all. Again, not trying to start anything, this is just my opinion. Cheers
Problem is everything went right last year and it may be the opposite this year . Hank vezina,Kreiders playoffs , hagelins reg season, mcdonagh emergence . What if hagelin has soph slump and Kreider can't adjust and how many goalies win bacK to back vezinas? Are they closer to the NYR of 2010 or to the NYR of 2011/12? Probably in th middle sumwhere , they gave up a lot of depth for Nash , well c lets goboys !!!
I missed a very important first goal for a brand new New York Ranger we brought in this offseason. That's right. Taylor Pyatt has officially arrived!
Actually, this would be my fault. I somehow managed to sleep through the game. As for the good news, I managed to sleep through the game.
There's no way this lasts all year. But I hope they watch these game tapes and get as disgusted as we are. What happened to our defense? Same guys, different players. Ugly weekend, screw it on straight boys!!!
So its Nash and Lundqvist aaaand....WTF? Del Zotto looks like a boy among men. Logic says don't panic but man they look lost out there. Their 3rd and 4th lines are too slow, can't keep up. Biron looked decent. They need to get organized, back to last years lunchpail mentality. Having Nash doesn't instantly make you the ''80's Oilers.
10 minutes left on the 3rd period, the fans we're yelling "LETS GTFO of here".
Its only 2 games, its not like the sky is falling... Right?
@KevinDeLury Fell asleep? kind of like the Blueshirts Defense eh?
@tookish190 after what, four years, 300+ recaps. This is a mulligan. Stick around, they don't happen very often.
@tookish190 Not sure how long you've been reading the blog tookish, but my recaps have always been and always will be hyperbole.
@tookish190 no offense tookish but im on Kevin's side. he is a fan first. I would have done the same thing. This blog, I feel, is my source of info from a fans perspective. I like feeling and seeing other fan's perspectives when i come here. My opinion. Your are going to get a visceral reaction, so i don't see anything wrong with no recap. I just wanted to defend kevin, not attack you, since everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect yours.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG None yet.
