Some highlights:

Rangers Have Gone From Winning to Whining


"The New York Rangers can't hope to consistently out-skate or outscore
the Washington Capitals, so their strategy is to outfight and out-argue
them.



Or maybe they had already expended it with a long letter
complaining to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, demanding better security
for Game 7. Mind you, this was
before Game 6 had even begun. It read more like a concession speech.
(She apparently didn't read the letter because it said POTENTIAL game
7).



The combativeness with which the Rangers started the series, and
with which they shoved the Caps to the brink of elimination, has
deteriorated into childish
quarrelsomeness. "Daddy, he bit me." Tortorella's wet disputations with
foam-flecked Caps fans as his team trailed 4-0 in Game 5 at Verizon
Center wasn't a matter of competitive ire, but a frustrated tantrumy
child flinging a bottle. And GM Glen Sather's letter to the
commissioner frankly
just sounded peevish.



The letter charges that Washington fans yelled too loud, and that
they made remarks about players being hom0sexuals -- remarks no doubt
bruising to the tender
ears of New York hockey players.



To review, the list of offenses the Rangers have suffered at the
hands of the Caps includes biting, spitting and name-calling. Next,
they will complain the
Caps didn't share their postgame juice boxes."



Kind of makes you understand why the caps fanbase is the way it is.
