i read this blog everyday and this is one of the best blogs out there for rangers hockey, i love your insight but can you please give me some insight on why the fuck tortarella would put the 4th line out after the rangers tied the game in the 3rd period?! i cant comprehend that move at all, and its not the first time hes done it all season, after icings hes put the 4th line out there as well, why not put one of the top 3 lines out there? keep the momentum going, the reason this team hasnt won all year is because of the coach, the players dont seem to want to play for him or respond to his tirades, sather went from one extreme to another with renney to tortarella, im thinkin a coach in the middle in terms of temperance and stratefy would be best suited for this team, your thoughts?
