ok they actually didn't play awful, but a loss is a loss. In fact I cannot remember the last time they won.
They still don't protect Jagr enough, they were knocking him down, hitting him all night, the Rangers gave it back alittle but not enough.
I will say DiPietro, what's the deal with him coming out of the net so much, he did that last game too, he should get a delay of game or knocked into the stands. He really wasnt tested yesterday, not many powerplays for us. ::Sighs:: my teams are giving me heartburn.
I thought the Rangers played a good game probably their best in about 3 weeks. They were solid defensivel especially Aaron Ward as usual. He was a great signing, we need a few more players like him on the backline. I didn't agree with the line combos though. Jason Ward and Blair Betts should not be put on scoring lines. They're strictly 4th lines players that have no playmaking ability whatsoever. Renney has put Prucha or even Immonen there instead.
"not a fan of aaron ward...players who win the cup one year with another team never win the cup with another team the next year..."
That's sheer coincidence (may not even be true) which has nothing to do with the player himself. Ward has been the best defenseman on this team by a wide margin. He's a very responsible defender, isn't afraid to take the body, clears the front of the net and he's doing all this with a broken bone in his hand and foot. He, Tyutin and maybe Rozy are the only defensemen worth keeping.
