Oh well. A goal that doesn't get through 95% of the time, a terrible play by Del Zotto and then the Rangers D letting Parise whack away at rebounds. As if they were just waiting for their turn to get the puck. Like I said on Wednesday, I expected a split in NJ (although did want last night's game). Rangers win the next 2 and move onto the finals. Queue Triumph with some Fenwick and Corsi numbers and an explanation about why the Rangers won't win 2 in a row.

love the fact that petey had the balls to bench a vet like sykora instead of a 4th liner. and it paid off nicely. also. its nice to see the refs "anticipating" the rangers dirty tactics (even though they missed a few)

zubrus is in beast mode and is skating very well too, zach is wi8nning everything too. thank God for fayne and greene. totally enjoying this series. although I hold my breath every time kovy is in our end, and actually glad when he leaves the ice now

is there a way to guarantee him and clarkson only get O-zone starts???? lol

JJ and henrique are bailing those two out defensively!

good game marty :koolaid:

You really are annoying.. you know what..
In the last game, the devils hit the shaft of the princess, they hit the post and kovy had him sprawled out defensless 2 times and didn't lift the puck. Its a game of inches, if those don't got the way rangers way, and they don't 95% of the time. Then the game terrific game by the princess is gone, '95% of the time.

Why don't you and that Queen of goalie have a glass of whine together. What bitch post.

The fact is the Rags broke down and lacked discipline while we continued to out hustle along the boards and kept up the forecheck.

95% of the time when you out shoot a team 5,000 to 3 you win the game.
95% of the time when you play the entire game in the other teams end you win the game.

100% of the time when you outscore a team 4-1 and walk all over them.. YOU WIN THE GAME.

There should have never been a rebound on that Parise goal.

True, but the d can't just stand there and watch.

The fact is the Rags broke down and lacked discipline while we continued to out hustle along the boards and kept up the forecheck.

How is it a bitch post if it is all true? The discipline didn't break down til the game was over.

OK, so Lundqvist making those saves is because Kovalchuck didnt lift the puck, but Marty's save on Gaborik in game 2, where he kicks his foot up and isnt even looking at the puck is all because of Marty's skill?

Maybe they're getting burnt out a tad? Torts is treating his top defensemen like they're Lecavalier/St. Louis/Boyle. The minutes were lower today and it looks like he gave up on Del Zotto. This attrition strategy can only last so long. Not saying they can't win this, just saying the attrition strategy can only last so long. First series they were down 3-2, second series they were 30 seconds from being down 3-2 on a team that probably could have finished them. Keep it up and eventually you're gonna lose the coinflip.

The second goal was an example of what happens when the Rangers get cute, instead of footracing for a random puck catching a team flatfooted, Del Zotto tries to move the puck across all the lines and Anisimov got destroyed by Zubrus for that loose puck. If they get drawn into that kind of game because their D starts breaking down, they are DONE.

hey NEWSFLASH i was being sarcastic retorting you're claim that all those goals were 95% chance.. NO.. they were 100%, b/c they happened and went in.. if you want to start talking about all those 95% of times, you are opening a can of worms. The bottom line is the rangers have been completely man handled in this series and are lucky to be 2-2. so STFU and be happy.

Del Zotto needed to be sat last night. He was off. His grandmother died Saturday while watching the game, and I honestly don't think his head was in the game. Torts should tell him to fly home today see his fam, come back and get ready for game 5.

They just can't seem to take the bull by the horns when it is there. Game 4 against ottawa, 2-0 lead and blow it. Then have a lousy game 5, fall behind in game 6, but they come back and get it done. After the 3 ot game against washington, they couldn't build off that emotion. Have another big win in game 5, which should have delated the caps and then the Rangers come out flat in game 6, but firing on all cylinders to take game 7. That is why you see Rangers fans still confident. When they look like a team that is done, the kick it up a notch and win.

Did they kick up a notch when they scored the luckiest goal of the playoffs with 6 seconds left to save their season? The team is on their last leg, I have never seen a team play this bad and make it this far.

Ban him already or ignore him totally. I have been following this forum since a few days and he is really getting on my nerves. Why nobody banned this guy since 2002?

TG: "The crowd tonight had the fewest number of Rangers’ fans that I’ve ever seen at a Devils-Rangers game at Prudential Center or the Meadwlaonds. It was probably about 15 percent Rangers’ fans—if that much."

Do I need those? I don't. The Rangers have not outplayed the Devils in any game. How can you be confident of them winning 2 in a row? Only if you're completely delusional and ignoring everything that's happened in this series so far.
