...it's hard to get too mad after this game. They played real hard and had 41 shots on goal. It was just Mike Smith's day I guess.
...despite being happy with their overall effort, I can't help but still be frustrated with this offense. With 12 minutes to go in the third period and the Rangers down 3-2, I had absolutely no confidence that they would comeback. I'm starting to wonder if these goalies have our number or we just can't shoot. I think Renney needs to pull out the 'Shooter Tutor.'
...it was good to see Jagr get on the score sheet, even if his goal was really a pass. He must have been inspired by Friday's 'Video of the Day.'
...not that I'm concerned about Lundqvist, but since he was given the night off against Toronto, with the exception of the Tampa game, he hasn't been the same. The second goal he gave up, even though it was on a mini break away, had to be stopped.
...3 days off until the Islanders are at MSG. Renney better get these guys going.
