The New York Rangers lost to the Washington Capitals by the score of 4-0, tonight and now have a 3-2 series lead in their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal match-up. For a recap and box score go to Yah00! Sports.
...and that's why you can't sit Sean Avery. I know Tortorella tried to send a message, but all of us who've watched this team all year know the Rangers show no passion when Avery's not in the line-up.
...and the worst part about Torts sitting Avery is that his message didn't even sink in. Selfish penalty by Gomez right off the bat followed by a too many men on the ice.
...have the Rangers hit 10 shots on goal yet?
...it's gotten so bad the Rangers might have to start declining penalties.
...i guess the strategy for the Capitals now is to shoot less, because after only scoring 8 goals on 149 shots in the first four games, they score 4 on only 21 tonight. Go figure.
...does Valiquette get the start on Sunday? Calm down, I'm joking.
...Ovechkin = ridiculous.
...got to give credit to Dubinsky for being the only Ranger who seemed to want to be out there. While Gomez continues to look like he doesn't.
...Drury only 7:21 of ice time. Why is he in the line-up if he can't play?
...another game to just throw out similar to Game 3. I expect to see a much better Rangers team on Sunday with Avery back in the line-up.
