Congrats on the series win against the Caps men :clap: Talk about a convincing closeout :D. I think this is a favorable matchup for the Rangers. Should be another fun one.

I think this goes 7, Boston always plays us tough, though we were 2-1 against them this year, one was in a SO after blowing a 3-0 lead in Boston and another win was an OT win against them at home when Gaborik had his hat trick, and we again blew a 2-0 lead. But I still think we beat them.

I know playoff hockey is a different beast but it's hard not to love the matchup.

Lundqvist's career numbers against Boston: 21-7, 1.67 GAA, .943 Save % and 6 SO.

I wonder if we see Powe, Staal, and Clowe in this series though. I would love to see Clowe versus Lucic :D

If I was the coach it would be hard for me to put Clowe on the ice. He hits and fights. Doing that after 2 concussions in 1 months time is just too risky for me.

Amazing how all of these low-profile midseason moves have helped out so much in the postseason so far...

Brassard, Powe, Clowe, Dorsett, Moore, Asham, Zuc...we'd be dead in the water without them.

That may be true. I guess you listen to the doctors and the player but 2 in a month is much more alarming for me.

Slats did a great job. He is pretty underrated in my eyes. Brass(9) and Zooks(5) were #1 and #2 on the team in playoff points. I know some smart handsome dude was asking for Zooks from before the season even started, lol. :)

Asham was not a mid season player but he has come up with some huge plays in the playoffs.

In my opinion the 4
things The Rangers must do to win this series are:
1) Play every game the way the did in game 5 against the Caps
2) Key in on Chara hit him and hit him hard every time he's on the ice even a big man feels pain and gets worn out. If he falls even better it's a long way down to the ice for him.
3) Richards & Nash must wake up especially Nash and start scoring.
4) Get the PP going 7% is not going to do it 20% will be decent for this team.

I'm unsure how our D is going to deal with the Bruins size up front on the PP. Lucic and Horton will be hard to clear out of Hendriks way. I can't believe I'm actually saying this but maybe they dress Bickel, not play him, so we have someone who can actually fight Lucic. I know he's not a good D man one on one but maybe on a PK he could clear the net, I don't know, I've always wanted Bickel out of the lineup because he's slow but I just think it's a big job for Girardi, Stralman, Moore and McDonagh to clear that crease out. I wonder if Tortorella would consider McIlrath even though he's never played an NHL game.

SLY WILLIAMS
05-16-2013, 12:41 PM
I would prefer not to rush Dylan. I would be okay with Bickel dressing but as a 7th dman or a 4th liner. I would only put him on the ice to hit or fight if needed.

Ya I think we need some more size with Clowe and Staal(not that Staal is a bruiser but he's a big body that can move people around if need be) both out. I agree with the rushing Dylan thing, but we do need some size. BTW love your Zuccarello sig.

Boston is big and tough so I can definitely see that thinking. We are not a very tough team at this point. I just saw that Dylan and the black aces are on their way home. I did not make the sig but as a big Mats fan I'm happy to use it. :)

We played right into the Bruins style. In the Capital series we attacked a bit more in games 3-7. The scoring was much improved. Yesterday we were content with playing slow. We looked good to start the game. Hank let in a pretty soft goal but played well otherwise. This team is downright scary to watch on the power play. That's how bad we are. No flow. No creativity. No bodies in front.

This just makes Sunday's game that much more crucial. We cannot go down 0-2 and realistically expect to hold home ice again. Our best players need to step up, and it's worrying that they haven't. But we were right in it and that was after being flat out dominated after the first five minutes. Scoring chances favored them. The post kept us in the game 3-4 times. Reminded me a lot like the Game 2 against Washington. And damn, do we miss Clowe and Staal or what. This team needs a spark and it's unfortunate I can't rely on Nash to get it.

One of our big problems last night was we didn't put hardly any pressure on their defense 3 rookies and 1 giant playing almost 40min and we don't bang them into submission, no pressure we have some big bodies to, not as many, so it should be up to them top pound their defense every time they touch the puck make them pay same as with their forward MAKE THEM PAY. When our smallest guy is checking the giant and everyone else shys away we have a problem. Guys like Boyle 6'7" 244 lbs, Pyatt 6' 4" 230lbs Kreider 6' 3" 226 the 3 are not expected to score so they should be pounding their defense of Chara 6' 9" 255lbs Hamilton 6' 5" 199 lbs and Mcquaid 6' 4" 197lbs. The average size difference of these players favors us, Bruins 3 6' 6" 217 lbs Rangers 3 6' 5" 233 lbs.

Mats tried his best to backcheck to cover for McD but I thought it was Brassard that passed the puck not Mats.
You're right it was Brassard.

I agree but they need to pound that defense harder and more often whenever they touch the puck, they need to pay, this is how we wear them out. Getting to the Bruin defense is one of the keys to winning the rookies will start to make mistakes and the giant will get tired he cannot sustain over 30 min per game and the pounding. We of all teams should know this after last year, remember it happened to us.

The Bruins do not force their breakouts up the boards.When our defense men take away the sideboards the bruins repeatedly mix in a chip pass up the middle to a bruins forward who is in stride. That leads to a lot of fast rushes up ice. I have been asking for us to mix in that kind of breakout all season. Last season as well.

To be fair this was probably the second best offensive game of these playoffs for this team. We looked really good up until midway through the third period. At that point we couldn't get anything through the bodies and on net.

The power play finally had some chances, but there just isn't movement or creativity and it limits those golden opportunities. Terrible job by Tortorella to signal out one player when the entire power play had been a joke all season. Starts from the top there.

Hank did not have the best game, but he was left to dry in that game. Our back check and assignment identification were atrocious.

Once again we fall down 0-2. Can we pull it off? Boston is definitely stronger than Washington, although I think we match up better. We need to hold home ice again, but there's a certain point where falling in these holes will spell the end of the season. It's on our big boys to step up (Nash and Cally had great games) or that's all she wrote. I put half the blame on the players and the other half on the coaches. This staff and team never makes things easy and it's time to consider a new direction. The continuous uphill battle is nauseating. It looks like players don't fight for Torts the way you'd like to see.

Ok lets get real our PP sucks, we are not aggressive enough it's about time to do something a lot of people wouldn't expect and that is to bench Brad Richards and insert Michael Haley in the lineup. He's not a goal scorer, PP Quarterback, or Finesse player but then again neither is Brad Richards anymore. This move can't hurt us any more than were hurting now maybe just maybe Haley will be the spark to ignite this team.

fingerbang
05-20-2013, 10:45 AM
You can't use a defenseman on the forecheck every single possession which leaves 1 dman back and then wonder why Boston is moving the puck up the ice so easily. So we play one dman back and our backcheck has been lazy. Not going to win games that way.

Do not take this as a bait.

I predicted this in the NHL forum, in the Bruins/Rangers GT. I claimed that the Rangers would lose in 5, and score about 7-8 goals in that span. My prediction has been about accurate so far, which is strange if you look at this team on paper.

Despite all of the talks about the Rangers this season, I never found them as a legit threat. I don't know why either. I can't quite figure out exactly why. Again, on paper, you've probably got the #2 team in the Eastern Conference.

I for the life of me can't figure out why. I watch quite a bit of hockey, other teams, especially in the playoffs, but I just can't find myself watching the New York Rangers this season. I watched a bit earlier in the season, a bit in the playoffs, and I just can't see this team as a threat. I can't find myself shocked the Boston Bruins are up 3-0.

The Rangers have the best goaltender in the world.
The Rangers have an elite defensive core (injuries have hurt).
The Rangers have an above average offensive core on paper.

Any reason why? Anyone else feel this way? I could see John Torterella being let go.

Brad Richards has 1 goal in 10 games (1 total point)
Rick Nash has 1 goal and 4 points in 10 games (For the record, somehow, I don't think he's been too bad)

Marian Gaborik has been traded

3 of the top 4 scorers are all 25 or so and under. The other being Ryan Callahan, who isn't exactly old either.

You have a hard time watching them because they are difficult team to watch. They play a boring brand of hockey and most would say they underachieve with the talent they have. Over the last handful of years they have barely managed to make the playoffs and when they have they've done close to nothing, last year was the outlier but its looking more and more like a fluke than anything. Also, it pretty hard to be consistently good in this league with a putrid power play and that is on the coaching staff (and thats prolly not the only thing on the coaching staff).

And honestly, I'm not surprised they won a series this year and maybe things would have been different with Staal and Clowe, but in no way did this team instill any confidence of a long playoff run. Everyone who thought the opposite was just fooling themselves.

The tough part of being a fan of this team is knowing they have the best goaltender in the world and dont know how to capitalize on that. Sorry Hank.

We're better. Do we score more goals? The game could have been 5-1. Hank kept us in it again. It's the system. It doesn't work. I'm tired of torts and this team. We go 1-20 on the PP and we improve. That says something. We had a chance to get back in this series. Our only goal was a deflection. No real quality chances


He has to go and no matter what you all say Slats has to go as well

Lets get one thing straight though, we are a much better team with a healthy staal and clowe

I agree,I know injuries are part of the game,but losing Clowe on the PP really hurt,he was the only guy who was a presence in front of the net.
That being said "we're done guys

Torts and Richards will be both shown the door this year. Richards I believe will be shopped and if nobody takes him, he'll be bought out I think, and if that happens I'd expect Slats to follow, you can't cost ownership the money he's cost them with the Redden buyout and this one if it happens. There is a chance that Richards could be moved though, I look at a team like Edmonton as being a perfect fit for him. Throw him with a couple skilled wingers in a run and gun system and he could reinvent himself. Other possibilities could be Toronto and Montreal both of whom have tried to find a #1 center(I know he wasn't this year but he could be under the right system and with some speed on his wings, as well I think the lockout hurt him a lot this year).

As for the rest of the series, I would hope Tortorella would change things up if only for one game and see if they can generate some more offense. Let the players lose and see what happens.

Brad Richards to Edmonton makes little sense. Edmonton has Nugent-Hopkins, Gagner, and Horcoff as their top nine. Richards brings a huge contract, and Edmonton is going to have to re-sign a bunch of top young players pretty soon. Keep in mind they're likely to spend a bit on the backend.

I do think Richards has value though.

Slats really?

Don't get me wrong, I wanted him fired 10 years ago. But if we didn't fire him then, why now? Dolan is ****ing ridiculous, there's still a new rumor every year about Isiah coming back.

The guy is a ****ing hack, Gretzky made that guys ****ing career by avoiding the entry draft. He makes moves a ****ing 14 year old could make. Bure, Lindros, Holik, Kasparaitis, Kovalev rd 2, Gomez, Drury, Richards, Redden, I DONT KNOW HOW THIS GUY STILL HAS A JOB. Even the move that went right (Jagr) fell into his lap and was made in the same EA Sports franchise mode way this guy has made all his moves.

The series comes down to this in my opinion.

The Bruins use the boards to break out but when the boards are taken away they have no problem taking advantage of the open mid ice to break out with speed. The Bruins create a lot of opportunities by breaking out with speed. Their goals often start on the rush where our game plan too often is to try to generate goals from behind the net. We force 85% of things up the side boards which leads to being too predictable. We therefore have a difficult time getting out of our own end and if we do it is not with speed. Then instead of generating most our chances off the rush we try to generate offense from behind the goal line. Lastly to try to help our offense this series we are sending 4 guys instead of 3. That 4th guy has been caught often and that has led to breakaways or 2 on 1s in the other direction.

Our breakouts are too predictable. I feel like that is a theme we have spoken about for a long time. Our PP planning is like throwing a dart at a wall at this point.

We have the talent but talent alone is not enough. You need to play in an organized team manner. The players need to have confidence in what they are doing. The Bruins do. We do not. I'd like our organization to watch the teams (Det, Pit, Chi, Bos, etc) with the best breakouts in the NHL and then find coaches that feel comfortable adapting their systems to our team. I can take some losing but losing in a boring manner is horrible to watch. PS get 1-2 real tough guys that will actually win fights. Dorsett mouthing with Marchand is fine but I would have liked to see a guy drop Thornton or Lucic. Clowe may have been able to in the past but after the concussions I would not want him to try.

Agree here. They're trying to play this Hanson brothers hockey and they don't really have an enforcer.

Remake the lines all together and I'd give McIlrath a chance tomorrow night, give him a game experience and who knows maybe he makes a difference. Adding in Gilroy for Stralman isn't gonna do anything for us.

My lines, with our lack of scoring I'd be recalling Christian Thomas and add legit sniper to the third line. We need three scoring lines to compete IMO and that fourth line can play with Boston's 4th. I know Thomas is a smaller player but he's also got a great shot and a nose for the net. This is just my opinion and none of this works unless Torts free's them up a bit and moves the wingers closer to the Bruins D.

It's not if it's the case. I know we burned a year of Kreider's ELC by calling him up last year so I would assume it would be the same with McIlrath unless there's some sort of minimum on games played.

I think the taxi squad kids were sent home a week ago. As much as I would like to see Dylan play in our next game I would put the chance of him playing at less than 1%.

JT Miller is a better possibility but also unlikely. I think Clowe, Powe, Staal, Gilroy, Hamrlik, or Newbury are more likely to play if needed.

I don't think he burns eligibility with one game. Think it's 5 or something. Clowe and Powe shouldn't play they aren't ready, and Gilroy and Hamrlik aren't gonna help at all. I don't know about Staal but everything I read points to him not being ready either. I don't think any of what I said would actually happen, it's what I'd be trying to see if I could light a fire. Torts will likely bring Bickel in instead. haha.

Word is Richards, is scratched. Asham and Kreider may also be scratched. Looks like Clowe, Newbury, Hamerlik and Haley may be going in.

No truth to the rumor that Torts was also scratched.

Newbury should never have been taken off this roster. He was creating energy for us. Having said that I think we should have tried Richie at wing at some point this year. He's seemed to slow down a bit and having him work 200ft isn't helping. I realize that Tortorella's motive for this move is to be able to physically compete with Boston's 4th line but we also need to score.
