Can Gaborik Deliver?

gaborikScott Burnside at ESPN.com wonders if Marian Gaborik is a player that can deliver the goods after missing on a golden opportunity to score on the crease in the second period of Game 1 Wednesday night…

“But the squandered chance was simply another piece of evidence that suggests Gaborik is one of those players who cannot seem to deliver the goods when the game is played at its most demanding level. Gaborik had four shots on goal in Game 1, including that glorious second-period opportunity. He has now gone 10 straight games without a goal.

This isn’t an indictment of Gaborik’s work ethic. But the playoffs are bottom-line time, so trying hard and being a good guy, opening doors for little old ladies and tossing change to panhandlers, counts for exactly nothing.”

Gaborik on not scoring on Wednesday night….

“Obviously when you get a chance, you need to do everything to score,” Gaborik said after the Rangers’ practice at Verizon Center on Thursday. “So obviously it’s frustrating, but you just have to keep going and create chances and just try and bury it.”

…if the Rangers want any chance of winning this series Gaborik is going to have to re-discover the magic from last year. If not this is going to be a short series.
