The New York Rangers lost to the New Jersey Devils by the score of 3-2 in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals matchup. The series is tied 1-1. For a recap and box score go to Yahoo! Sports.
…seriously, why can’t this team take a 2-0 lead!!!!
…i actually didn’t think the Rangers played all that poorly. The result pretty much came down to Clarkson’s shot hitting the pipe and going in while Kreider’s bounced out. Did feel the Devils came out much hungrier though.
…not sure trying to teach a veteran, 41-goal scorer a lesson while down one in the third period is the best strategy in the Eastern Conference Finals. But that’s just me.
…after tonight’s game I’m convinced Callahan is injured. He’s not even trying to shoot.
…most impressive part of Kreider’s goal is that he proved he’s not afraid to park himself in front of the net to make a play.
…EIGHT blocked shots for McDonagh tonight. Nothing gallant about that right Mr. Cambell.
…assuming tonight was the last third period shift Bickel sees for the rest of the playoffs after being on the ice for the Devils game winner.
…two straight games with a power play goal? That’s got to be a record for the Rangers.
…terrible ice conditions, penalty box doors that don’t open. Didn’t exactly look like the World’s Most Famous Arena tonight.
…does Barbara Underhill run a faceoff school that Stepan can attend this summer?
…tonight was the first time I noticed Prust since his Game 6 fight against Neil in the first round.
…got nervous for a second in the third period when Staal was down on the ice after taking high high from Bernier.
…if players such as Hagelin, Fedotenko, Mitchell and Rupp don’t start chipping in some goals soon I can pretty much guarantee the Rangers won’t top three goals in this series.
…off until Saturday’s Game 3 at MSG South.
