The San Jose Sharks throttled the New York Rangers tonight by a score of 9-2 behind four goals from Tomas Hertl. If for whatever reason you want to view a box score of this butt-whooping, click here.
Hard to believe the Rangers actually led in this game…
Paging Brendan Shanaban…. only to add insult to injury, Nash got his bell rung thanks to a Brad Stuart high elbow that caught Nash on the chin prior to Richards making it 1-0. Given this is concussion number 2 in eight months, expect him to miss some time.
I know its only the third game with a new coach in a new system, but the effort the Rangers gave in the second period should only happen in games played in September, compared to San Jose who looked like a team playing in mid April with a playoff spot on the line. Were some of those goals a little fluky?Yes, but giving up 4 goals in 4:16 shouldn't happen, period.
Given the way the Rangers were playing in the second period, I thought Vigneault should've called timeout after San Jose made it 3-1 to settle his team down. You could sense that third goal was an inevitability.
Liked Boyle sticking up for Nash, only problem was that it was 2 periods and 6 goals against too late.
That third period…. LOLOLOL.
