The New York Rangers lost to the Washington Capitals by the score of 2-1 in overtime, tonight. Washington now leads the series 3-2. For a box score, go to Yahoo! Sports.
...what? Did you actually think the Rangers were going to allow us to enjoy a stress free Mother's Day weekend? I think you know this team better than that.
...absolutely putrid effort on offense. No pressure, no puck control, nothing. Their effort in the second and third period set offense back a century.
...and the reason for their lack of puck possession? Just a brutal night in the faceoff circle. Especially for Boyle and Brassard who combined to go 11-for-33. Can't score if you don't have the puck.
...hope each player individually apologized to Lundqvist after that one.
...Nash = ARod.
...Brassard has gotten a ton of love on this blog, but it was his failure to clear the puck that led to Ribiero's winner.
...on a positive note, Ovechkin is going to have nightmares about the two-headed monster that is McDonagh and Girardi who were phenomenal tonight. Ovechkin wanted nothing to do with going anywhere near the front of the net.
...Boyle's terribly undisciplined penalty wiped away all the positive vibes from his goal.
...hope Kreider's ready, because I doubt we see Clowe on Sunday.
...i liked Dorsett's game tonight. Very active and deserved more than the seven minutes of ice time he was given. Especially with Clowe knocked out of the contest.
...not even going waste key strokes discussing the power play.no comments
