I don't give a sh!t whose fault the 2nd goal was. This team was pathetic tonight. Here's a fun fact for ya...

Tuesday has the chance to be the 4th time in 5 years we lose a series on home ice and that other year we missed the playoffs. Awesome!

Yes you're right but I was keeping that one out cause we actually made the 2nd round that year and it was back at the meadowlands. Still a wonderful stat no matter how you say it! :koolaid:

believe boys.

things go wrong sometimes but i will support this team. they may play like crap but im still here to support. you know why? hardwork, dedication, and 3 Stanley Cups. I get excited when we win, but I refuse to turn into a whining pissy loser when we lose. everyones loses.

we may lose tuesday, i wont lie. i'd say its a 50/50 game. but i believe we can win tuesday and force a game. is boston out? is new york out? its pittsburgh? maybe we all end up losing, maybe one advances, hey, maybe we advance. ya gotta believe. were not out till were out. seasons on the line tuesday. :burn:

I still can't get over the fact that actually showing up for full hockey games is a problem for a team in the playoffs. I just can't. To hear Parise say the words "we didn't compete hard enough" after a pivotal, possibly series-turning game... I just don't know what to say.


Oh good lord, thank god I turned off the postgame after about five minutes, I would have kicked in the TV. Put that right along with Marty's 'we didn't expect to be tested this early' quote as a reason why this team needs to be gutted once they lose.

But yeah them not giving effort was obvious to anyone who watched the final two periods.

don't worry guys, there must be some sabermetric statistic that is going to prove that we will win the next two games.


My post of the night...cause this actually got a brief chuckle out of me.

That's why I have no hope for this group. If they don't get it now, they never will. They don't deserve it. Any team that can't give effort and compete in the playoffs doesn't deserve to be there in the first place.

Islanders? you are a moron


Get a fukin grip. What are we 12 years old? Did I offend you because I can appreciate watching good hockey even if it's not coming from the team I root for? All i said was it could be fun watching Parise and Tavares on the same line as long as they're not playing against us (should he get traded to the NYI, which i'm not hoping for btw). I'm not an Isles fan but I'll admit that Tavares is one of the best young players in the league and if Zach was paired up with him, it would be entertaining to see. Sorry, i'll go back to drinking Lou's Kool-aid and shouting "Rangers suck!" so I can be considered a true fan.

Another fun stat, we've lost our last five playoff games when facing elimination, the last four of them at home. Our last win when facing elimination was Game 4 against Carolina in 2006. Just to contrast, the Penguins already put up two wins when facing elimination this year.

Sharks and Wings were already gone to the golf field. We might see them pretty soon along with the Nucks, Rags and Pens.

I have to admit I'd be somewhat amused if Florida was the highest seed remaining after this round, which is very possible now. At this point it wouldn't totally shock me to see them troll everyone a la Carolina in 2002 and make a run to the Finals after they beat us and the rest of the bracket blows up.

Better them than the Rangers, Boston, Philly, or Pittsburgh.

I'd be shocked if they don't lose in 4 or 5 games to whoever they play. These panthers are fvcking terrible which makes losing to them even worse.

Yeah well the Panthers could get the Rangers, Boston and Pitt/Philly out of the way without having to play them. And if all the 3-2 leads hold they'd be playing Ottawa while the Caps and Flyers would play each other. They could certainly beat Ottawa, then once you get to the Conference Finals after having two series wins all bets are off.

Using the same logic, the Devils currently have a non-zero chance of winning the cup, if results hold.... and they're pissing it away. So it's really not amusing, it's wall-punching quality.

Seasons over

Was never a fan of hanging the C on Parise. He doesn't need the added pressure. He's not an intimidating warrior type like a Stevens or Dennis Potvin...and he has played hard as usual but the comments tonight leave me scratching my head.

I dont know where the passion went really....but this team just doesnt show consistently that it wants it more than florida.
