Time to separate from them!
Igor in net

per Mercogs
Think we can add another touchdown  
chopperhatch : 3/27/2021 12:07 pm : link
To take the football score to 24-3 in the last 3?

Have a feeling this one is going to nasty if we go up by a couple goals early.

agree, chop, that jack the ripper look-alike Laughton (sp?) was clearly spoiling for a brawl

I can understand that. His team got fucking trounced twice. At least he didnt catch Rooney by surprise by dropping his gloves and unloading on him like Morin did to Lemieux. I know Lemieux can be mouthy, but Morin gave him two nice shots to the head...then pulled his hair down to the ice. Hahaha. While yhe latter part was kinda teh geigh, he did drop a couple of hirt bombs on BL.
Agree, it is going to be a nasty one.

Big test for this team.

makes them pay for bad penalty
Mika is such a stud

Hope they don’t let a slow start fueled by COVID distract from the fact that he is a top 5 center in this league at full strength

He’s a championship caliber center
Koneckny is such  
Bricktop : 3/27/2021 1:42 pm : link
a little cunt.
This period is huge  
Ron Johnson : 3/27/2021 2:52 pm : link
Need to put them in the rear view mirror.
How many times can Igor bail  
Ron Johnson : 3/27/2021 3:07 pm : link
Us out
Played like shit all game  
Ron Johnson : 3/27/2021 3:25 pm : link
Philly outworked them
How is Moran  
Stufftherun : 3/27/2021 3:26 pm : link
in the lineup in the first place? He should have been suspended for grabbing Lemieux’s hair and driving his helmet less head into the ice on Thursday.
Considering how bad the Philly defense and goaltending is  
NYerInMA : 3/27/2021 3:28 pm : link
there's no excuse for only scoring 1 goal against them.
No production  
bluesince56 : 3/27/2021 3:34 pm : link
out of bottom two lines. Can’t expect top two to carry you every game

Philly looked to have changed their D system today and the Rangers failed to adjust.

Shesterkin played excellent. He has looked excellent the past two games.
Another Late Tie Breaking Goal Against...

Resulting in NO Fuckin' Points and No Fuckin' Playoffs...
ColHowPepper : 3/27/2021 4:59 pm : link
have you checked out the schedules remaining for PHIL and BOS? Predominant numbers are vs Sabres and Devils. Yeah, you want to push hard to do the best you can til season's end, but based on schedule alone NYR going up against long odds.

Yea, Chytil for all his handke never putas himself in a position to shoot the puck
Kind of a complement to Brett's point  
ColHowPepper : 3/27/2021 5:07 pm : link
as a not positive: I commented at end of the 8-3 win that I thought the last 25 minutes were some very sloppy and disorganized play in our own end, d-men dropping too hard ('prevent d'?) and backchecking disjointed vs Flyers' rushes, even though Rangers won the period 2-1.

Today, I thought Knoblauch may have protected his guys some in response to Mercogliano's question about whether coach was concerned about the high number of shots Igor faced Thurs and today; coach said yeah, the numbers were high, but what %% were high chance shots, so, not really concerned. What I saw today was a cont' of late Thursday night, tons of space as Philly entered our zone, backchecking late to the attacking wings, lot of space between our d-men, anything but tight. fwiw
Wouldn't hurt to bench Lafreniere for a game or two  
Anakim : 3/27/2021 5:08 pm : link
Get his mind right. Let Kravtsov play.
Lemieux to LA for a fourth round pick.  
BrettNYG10 : 3/27/2021 7:05 pm : link
I could take or leave Lemieux, but a 4th seems like why bother?  
Mad Mike : 3/27/2021 7:55 pm : link
I assume that means Kravtsov is in tomorrow.
ColHowPepper : 3/27/2021 11:13 pm : link
Not sure if he's had the practice time to fit in on a line--surely no finely tuned mechanisms 3rd and 4th, so why not?--but hell, the team doesn't want to send another Lias message do, they?

We get so caught up in chasing the Playoffs, which this season was never supposed to be about, so let the kids play. Muddle headed at the top? Sure, the playoffs 'chase' is good experience, but the priority remains player and team development. Are the Rangers over prioritizing skill players vs street smart winners?
