Alright, I've had enough of this losing streak. Somebody has to step up and be like enough is enough. I want to see them crashing the net, SHOOTING the puck on the power play, and get in the other teams' face a little bit. However that probably is wishful thinking with the Euro style of our team..
What a horrible game. Terrible, terrible job by the Rangers! What a shame. Something needs to happen because this team has just lost, I believe 5 games in a row, correct me if I'm wrong, and back to back leads in the 3rd down the drain. THIS IS NOT GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just got sick to my stomach watching this 3rd period. I love Lundqvist but there were 2 of those that my little cousin in pee-wees could have stopped. This all goes back to coaching, and while Renney has done a good job, I think he's starting to lose control of the team. They didn't play with any desire or intensity in the 3rd period. The good teams, the championship teams, when they have a 3-0 lead going into the 3rd, they go in for the kill and those games end up 5-0 or 6-1. The Rangers don't have that killer instinct, and outside of Shanahan, they just don't have any desire. It's really tough to watch, especially in back to back games.
With Christmas coming up, here's my wishlist...
-Call up Dawes and Callahan (and LET THEM PLAY MORE THAN 3 SHIFTS PER GAME) They can't be much worse than Hossa and Orr. -Let's see what Montoya can do (this could spark Lundqvist and make him realize that if this kid does well he could be splitting time with Montoya) -Let Pock play on defense, and possibly give Baranka a shot.
They said in 2004 that the kids will get a chance, well, let's see it.
