Man I feel bad for Henrik... the night before against the habnots you could see the team and the defense playing smart and working hard to win the game with the rookie Cam Talbot in net.
Then last night against the kings with Henrik in net you could see the stupidity and the lack of effort because it seems the players just say to themselves, "Oh Henrik is in net we don't have to work as hard" and we lose 1-0.
Lundqvist looked really pissed after the game and I don't blame him. LA dominated most of the first two periods and without Henrik we get blown out. A fluke goal off Stralman's foot and that's all it took... Because the team didn't work as hard as they did the night before... yea 37 shots on the king's back up goalie but only a few were quality chances...
A month into the season and we're playing better but the Blueshirts need to play hard every game even if its against the worst team in the league. Not sure if its a coaching issue or what but still early in the season and we're in the hunt but long way to go and need to get that corrected.
If Hank decides to leave i dont blame him. There must he a certain point in someones life when they get sick of doing everything
Hank isn't leaving, it's the point of $$$
I have a question guys that may be a stupid one. I can't figure why the Rangers haven't already clinched a playoff spot with 90 points owning the 5th seed as of tonight..
Sitting in the 9th & 10th positions are Toronto and Washington at 82 & 81 points respectively. Toronto has 3 games remaining in their season so the most they can wind up with is 88 points if they win out.. 2 points shy of the rangers even if they lost their final 3..
Washington has 4 games remaking for a possible 89 points. Again one shy of where NY sits.. I don't get it?
NJDevils are next with 80 points and 4 games left.. What gives. Have the sites not updated yet after tonight's play or am I missing something..?
I realize their seeding could change as Philly or Detroit Could catch them as they both have more games to play then the rangers. I think Philly has two more and Detroit one more then NY. Or there is an outside chance the rangers could catch TB or the Canadians.
But shouldn't there still be an * that they've clinched a spot at least
They just clinched home ice!
looks like they will get philly. nothing like a good old fashioned new york - philly playoff matchup. last time they both met in the playoffs was in the 97 conference finals.
