2-5-1: Rangers Lose 1-Zip To Penguins
Well, the Rangers fell flat.
I really don't have much new to say as the pattern continues. Hank plays great. Kids play great. Stars play like crap. Rangers try to play possession game and lose possession. When Rangers shoot, they make opposing goaltender look like Ken Dryden. Rangers hugely-expensive power play has no electricity. Rangers lose.
Now maybe all it takes is one good shift, a lucky bounce at the right time that will reinvigorate the team. Who knows? These last two dead-puck losses were both on the road, maybe being at the mercy of us lunatics at the Garden on Thursday will put the Rangers on their toes. I don't think so, but we will see. After all, we will only be playing a trapping team with limited offensive capabilities and a solid goaltender.
Last time Boston won 1-0. Wanna bet that Thursday will be a similar barnburner? I didn't think so. I don't think I will be able to take it.
