Because they accused the Devils of ruining hockey when we won that way. When the Rags do it, it's somehow revolutionizing the sport. But that's the media. They're not paid to be smart.

Rangers were also 3rd in the league in goals scored, led the league in 5-on-5 goals, even strength goals, even strength goal differential, and tied with tampa for the best 5-on-5 goal differential.  Secondly, it was the Penguins and Capitals who tried to play all-out defend, not the Rangers.  Rangers would have much rather played run and gun with those teams.

Why doesn't the media ever give the rags sh!t for their boring play. All they do is block shots and collapse around the queen. That's why henrique's goal was so sweet, seeing four blue shirts laying down on the ice trying to block. So pathetic.

Did you watch yesterday's game?  Did you watch their first 2 series?  Pens tried to play that way and it didn't work.  Caps played that way and it worked til the end of game 5, then got away from it, and lost.  Yesterday was wide-open?  Why would the media give the Rangers crap for playing effective defense?

The worst thing that happened for the Caps was that power play. They would be been better off sticking to 5 on 5, they were in total control.

A lot of people seem to be thinking the same.  They were just playing helter-skelter and had the Rangers running around.  Then, they got the PP, went back to their system of feeding Ovi and the Rangers got back to their PK system.  When the penalty was called I thought, "Too bad this isn't NHL 94, 95, or 96 for Sega."  My wife looked at me like I was nuts and I said, "All you had to do on those games in this situation was get possesion, and hit the button for shoot. No matter where you were, the puck would be on net and you score the empty netter."

The Rags will win in OT now. You just know it.

I'll be honest, I didn't think they were winning Friday night.  I said on a Rangers board and on facebook they had to score in the first or they would lose.  When the first period ended, thought it was over.  When Glencross scored, it didn't phase me.  When they scored, I didn't get excited as I thought they would still lose.  Felt like 1990 all over again, Holtby=Druce.  When McDonagh scored in OT, I didn't get excited, it was more of a sigh of relief.  Last night, thought the same, that they had to score in the first period.  When Kreider had a chance to score that 2nd goal early, (puck was behind Holtby, he got a stick on it, but at a terrible angle and he put it back into Holtby) I thought they may have blown it.  Then, when he scored the 1st period buzzer-beater I thought they had this one.  Even when the Caps cut it to 4-3, was still convinced the Ranges would win.  


2013 makes it 5. I'm not sure how it'll go. All the talk from Ovechkin and Kuznetsov is just that. Every game has been tight. The Rangers better not think they can coast. They took their foot off the gas pedal last night and were lucky Hank bailed them out. It'll probably be another one-goal game. 2-1 or 3-2.

2013 was not 3-1.  The home team won the first 6 games and the Rangers won game 7 in Washington. It was a 3-2 lead.
