...really disappointed with the Rangers effort tonight. Sure the two fights were great, but the Rangers were not at all physical while the Flyers took every opportunity to take a shot at a Ranger. Legal or illegal.
...man the refs were god awful, how was Boogaard's tap to Shelley's leg a penalty and a lunging blow to the head of Fedotenko not?
...nice to see Prust stick up for Feds, but as Mike Keenan said in the post game the Rangers were reacting all night instead of being proactive. That was the difference tonight.
...bad giveaway by Del Zotto ends up costing Rangers tonight.
...second straight game Lundqvist gives up a bad goal at a crucial time. And to make things worse it was against Zherdev.
...someone needs to put Frolov's picture on the back of a milk carton because this guy has been missing since the start of the regular season.
...offense looked eerily similar to last year's. Which isn't a good thing. Where was the forecheck tonight?
...man I miss Blair Betts.
...Dubinsky keeps rolling along with his team leading eighth goal.
...bad game for Eminger, who, as the Rangers only physical defenseman, needed to come out taking the body and came up empty.
...despite the horrible officiating bad penalties did the Rangers in tonight.
...no time to dwell on this one as the Rangers head to The Rock tomorrow for a date with the Devils.
