Zidlicky looks tired and should NOT be playing the minutes he is. He drags us down in the third period the past few games. Harrold should play the PP.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

Compare NBC's crowd coverage to CBC's. NBC didnt do our crowd justice. The goal horn sounding distorted all night demonstrates some funky audio engineering by NBC. Amazing atmosphere at the Rock last night.

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."

I had four Rangers fans in front of me in the back of 228. They paid $100+ to sit with their hands on their laps as they helplessly watched their team get outplayed and outclassed for a full 60 minutes. It was humorous.

There might as well have been no Rangers fans there because they pretty much had nothing to make noise about about all game long.

Yea, me too. I don't think its a case of him being tired though. I think its a case of him looking for a passing outlet/shooting lane before he has the puck. He's done this everywhere he's played apparently.

I think a lot of times the puck was bouncing.

fun fact: Only 4 Rangers forwards (Anisimov, Gaborik, Stepan & Richards) have more assists in the playoffs than Marty Brodeur... lolz

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.


zach parise is a great hockey player and just blew past him...this is not too dissimilar to what's been going on the entire series. Lundqvist wasn't there too bail you out this time though.

indeed, the rangers D letting Parise whack away (then again the goalie should've squeezed that) but the Rangers D is getting worn down and beat up. So expect a lot more of that as the Devils continue to assert their physical dominance.

it wouldn't shock me if the devils had twice as many quality scoring chances as the rangers in the first 4 games.

Rangers fan counting chances for his blog had it at around 60% NJD at 5 on 5 through the first 3 games. He never posted a total for the 3rd period last night, but here's the totals:

1: 12 15
2: 8 7 (missing 3rd period)
3: 17 7
4: 9 6 (missing 3rd period)

so that's 46-35, 56.8%. I imagine it's about the same if we had the 3rd periods of those games, where NJ was ahead, but the Rangers didn't put up much of a fight last night - wouldn't be surprised if they only had 2 or 3 chances, NJ had that on the power play at least.

Harrold is playing the PP and while not ideal ZIdlicky should be getting these minutes because no one else can take them and play like he's playing both ways.
