The Rags might be winning, but they have been outplayed this period.

Devilsfanatic
04-12-2012, 17:21
How are three of the top four shot blocking teams OUT of the playoffs?

The Rangers just need the first goal, then it's over.

guyincognito
04-12-2012, 17:25
Yep, typical Rangers hockey, take advantage of the oversized zones and make you do everything from the outside. I can't see how you can win doing this. Their entire game is predicated on getting the first goal and then falling asleep on top of you

guyincognito
04-12-2012, 17:28
there's the offensive outburst for the period, seems like half of their breakout is off basic clearing plays

when we were actually good? no, we sat on people in the neutral zone and tried to oddman them to death. Rangers play like the 2003 Ducks, they just sit around in their own end not letting you do anything. If they didn't have speed up front and did this, they would blow

Lunqvist has been real.

I think this might be a short series actually :laugh:

guyincognito
04-12-2012, 17:36
well, that's it for tonight. if the Sens can't make this look like a normal hockey game they have no hope of winning. this is a total clusterfuck mess

Moving the blueline back can be filed under another bad post lockout rule change. Just makes teams collapse more because of the extra too to get burned if you are aggressive. It is why I laugh when the hers want bigger ice. Bigger ice makes the game more like soccer.

guyincognito
04-12-2012, 17:39
pretty much all of those rules have failed to do what they were supposed to. another top team that plays Julienball and can't string a nice play together. whoopidy-do.

Only two post lockout rules have worked IMO, the cant change after an icing and faceoff in the offensive zone to start a pp

Well, that's it for that game. Ottawa has no chance if Lundy keeps that up

guyincognito
04-12-2012, 17:46
They scored again? I stopped paying attention. The 3rd period should be epic

Devilsfanatic
04-12-2012, 17:47
It's 3-0. Steven Mastrosimone scored the 3rd.

To a point, they're not letting anything dangerous through, biggest fear honestly is them putting the puck in their own net trying to block everything.

Devilsfanatic
04-12-2012, 17:53
Speaking of Tending, Holtby has been great.

He's there when he needs to be, that's the main thing. I hope they can get a few on him to get some confidence. Sens need a good 3rd.

Getzo5
04-12-2012, 17:55
Speaking of Tending, Holtby has been great.I called it. He`s very confident, obviously enjoying the game.

GIC is right about Lundqvist.

Also, Ottawa is one of the best teams at overcoming 3rd period goal deficits this year. We`ll see. It ain`t over yet I hope.

Nice save by Niemi

04-12-2012, 18:09
Of course the one game that is a blowout is the one offset, where you basically have to watch it during the intermission

Getzo5

4-0 Rags, yeah, thats a game. Le sigh.

i meant in terms of getting a lead in protecting it. they don't play the same style we played.

Speaking of Tending, Holtby has been great.

which is why i picked the blues to lose the series. i don't think they have the stamina to win a 7 game series, playing the style they play. it is tough winning all of those 1 goal games.

Ok, Devils jersey off, Canucks jersey on.Boo.


If Pronger was around, it would be a sweep.Don`t be so sure about that. He started this year as Derian fucking Hatcher. That`s how slow he was. I thought his injury was a blessing in disguise. No kidding.

You probably didn't have to deal with this **** north of the border, but when the NBC Family covered the Olympics - what a fucking disaster

TV timeouts, 8 of 10 times came back late - missing the faceoffs

Intermissions would return and they'd usually already be at the first stoppage of the period.

They would also mis time TV timeouts, and cut to commercial after like an icing, and then cut the commercial short and then middle of a rush the other way sor some ****

What a disaster this is gonna be

We sitting back against bad teams, Pens can't play defense, and Philly sucks against the like we did Philly in 2010. Oh god the Rangers are going to the final

Well, they have to come up with more than "score the first goal and then sit on top of the other team." This allows them to be taken. I don't know if they can beat Boston if that's all they have. The current Julienball team meets the master of Julienball. games go to 9 OT's.

I haven't followed the West that much this year - has Schneider seen enough time to warrant that? I mean this is the top seed in the whole tourney, you're gonna go on the road needing a sweep with your backup?

There's yanking a guy down 4 in the first to not rattle him for the next game, but then there's complete knee jerk - if the team sucks, what makes them think they'll be better for another goalie. And if they are, what if he's not up to task?

LIke I said, I don't watch the west as much as I should b/c I just can't , so I have no idea how capable Schneider is or would be in this same situation

Everyone forgets about Boston. The Rangers really aren't that good and they don't have anything gamebreaking about them. They don't have the hockey equivalent of a QB who throws for 6000+ yards in a 20 game season.

The Giants exploited the **** out of their matchups - they had a smart coach who knew their strengths and more importantly - recognized their weaknesses

I sense that with the Rangers somewhat. And yes, the Queen is the QB who can throw for 6K yards - he can steal a game or a series. We may hate to admit it but in this era of hockey, he's top of the hill.


Boston, I'm not too confident in, they couldn't score but 1 goal on how many backups in game 1?

It's one game, they're the champs. They played great for 2 periods. Third was a little iffy but they're the better team against a team I think could have taken the Rangers, not the favorite, but had a chance against them.

No. Not all. When you give the reigns to Giroux, you're taking a risk, but at the same time those of us who liked Giroux, thought maybe it wouldn't be so bad. He's lucky though that Couturier is a 10 year vet and not a rookie.

04-13-2012, 22:57

I still don't think Schenn is going to be better then Richards and the contract he gave to Bryzgalov is still retarded. Though he did get bailed out of his Pronger contract. In two years they will claim some PCS bullshit and get that contract taken off the books.

It's been two post season games against a team that hasn't played defence in two months. Ask me again about holmgren when he wins a cup. Man is still an idiot. But good on him for taking Couturier.
