I guess I don't really hate them because they didn't goon it up a la NYR and Philly. If Brown pulled his usual douchebaggery I might feel different. It's not their fault the refs missed the Gionta board, called a major on Bernier and set a pick on Volchenkov

I have nothing against the players on the kings, actually I really like some of their players (brown, quick, penner) but after playing them in the playoffs last year I realized that they are a classless organization. Don't hate the players, just the management of the organization. In all seriousness who hires a porn star to sit behind the opposing teams bench and hang her boobs out to distract them? There are other reason which have been mentioned a post or two before this. I've never seen a more obnoxious organization where the one in the wrong is actually management and not the fans

The end of that Kings-Sharks game was so messed up. Same kinda crap that killed us in Game 6 against them, extended power plays and then boom, they sealed the deal. I got some flashbacks watching the end of this game...

Exactly.  I got sick watching the end of last night's game.  Sharks better take 2 at home.

I know everyone's first reaction is to say that last night's game, and the series, is "very even". But I can't help but think about what would've happened if some of those shots that hit the post went in. I mean, obviously Boston knows how to get by the Rangers' defense, they know how to get pucks past Lundqvist, last night was incredibly unlucky. The pit in my stomach was making me think that the Rangers might win in overtime, just because that's what they always do. But Boston got the job done, thank god.

 

But imagine any of those shots that hit the post go in, and we're looking at a 6-2 blowout. I think Boston looked better than what people will give them credit for, they're dangerous as hell. If we were playing them in a series, I think we'd get swept.

Did you know that Queeny is 3-11 in playoff OT?

Marty's record isn't much better.  Among active goalies with more than 2 playoff OT appearances, JS Giguerre has the best record at 12-1.

 

Moral of the story, playoff OT record isn't really an indication of anything.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

That doesn't mean anything, he plays for a bad team who can't score for him. It is obvious he is the best goaltender in the league for the past 4 years. Imagine he was on a better team that can actually score for him. Add a couple of veznias, a cup, and maybe a conn smythe. He is playing for a mediocre team, HE makes it a good team.

 

Regular season:

GAA: 2.25
Save %: 0.920
Shutouts: 45

Playoffs:
GAA: 2.24
Save %: 0.921
Shutouts: 8

 

This is a mind blowing stat.

 

Lundqvist has 18 career playoff games where he posted 30 plus saves. 18 games. 1.49 GAA .941 %

He has a 9-9 record in those games, he is not the problem.

 

The guy is a really good goalie. Best in the world right now. Only the Rangers can waste his career.

I was merely responding to the guy who said the rangers always seem to win in OT..... CMON guys

I meant it more in terms of the Rangers seemingly always scoring when you least expect it, or when they least deserve it, not in terms of their OT performances.

Rangers always score when the other team has like 8 scoring chances in a row, and then they come back and score on some BS...at least that has been the formula vs the Devils lately and a few caps games in the playoffs this year

Agree with this but it doesn't tell the whole story. In games 5 and 6 of the ECF, the Rags actually outplayed us, but Lundqvist sh!t the bed. The numbers look good and we all know he's elite but let's not act like he hasn't had his struggles in big spots

No doubt, but he has consistently been better than the team in front of him.

I notice you don't say what Brodeur's record is - that's because it actually is much better.  16-24 is not great, but it's much better than 3-11.  Brodeur also started 3-11 but is 13-13 since then.

 

Just like Brodeur's early career, Lundqvist simply gets 0 goal support in OT.

If you want to nitpick the percentages fine. The point is Marty's playoff OT record isn't anything to brag about, to the extent you think it means anything.

And by definition, losing in OT means you got 0 goal support.

Released a full press release on why they thought Shanny was wrong suspending Torres. SJ must have known they'd get fined for that and decided it was worth it.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
