[I]QUOTE(S) TO NOTE:



“I think the game boils down to the power play, which gives up a two on oh and they score, obviously. They were the better team in front of both nets.”

— [Head Coach] Alain Vigneault looking back on the 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night

Wild are coming off a thorough thumping of the Lightning on Saturday night. Won't be an easy contest at all. Especially given how well Kuemper has played in these hand full of games. I think he has three shutouts in his last five games.

Find the right gear, Rangers. You'll need it tonight.

Both Chris Kreider and rookie Kevin Hayes were absent from the power play drills. Hayes was the last skater on the ice and may be scratched.


Asked if the 6-4 Malone, who has been posted in front of the net on the power play, would dress, Vigneault said: "At this time, I would say yes."

Good to see Malone back in the lineup (as of now). Love the way he's been playing, same with Stemps and Girardi. Nothing but good things to say about them.

Hayes is a good player, he just needs better game IQ. He needs to know when to take the shot, when to make the pass, etc. Too many times I've seen him hold it because there wasn't a clear enough pass and wouldn't take the shot, ends up going behind the net and opportunity gone. Although, I have seen improvement since his first game.

That play is exactly why Hagelin is not a long-term top-6 player. Loose puck in the slot, and instead of the quick strike shot, you corral it and allow the goaltender to slide back into position before getting your weak shot off? Should be 1-0 Rangers right now.

Yeah, I really don't see him turning into anything more than a handy 3rd liner

Spot duty in the top-six is fine, but if you've got that guy penned into either of your top lines, you're making a mistake. He's always going to be the weakest offensive player on any line, IMO.

And I'm not trying to run him down, either. Effective third liners are quite valuable... at the right price.

God damnit Kreider. He's gotta learn how to use his strength and speed. This happens more than it should.

It happens when you are dealing with aggressive power forwards. It's something he'll work on over the course of his career, but the old saying applies here — rather tame a tiger than paint stripes on a kitty cat.

So Nashty
10-27-2014, 07:45 PM
stupid hit but kreider was literally stopping as they bumped and the minessota player went flying. cant fault the guy for playing hard. I rather see that than a player shying away from contact to win a puck battle.

Mike
10-27-2014, 07:45 PM

Too strong? I hope you're not using that as an excuse, because I know a 12 year old that could have pushed a stopping Brodin into the boards like that.

Exactly. Rather tame a tiger than paint stripes on a kitty cat. Rangers have been wanting that type of physical player for years. Now that you have it, you can't expect perfection. In order to play that hard, you will cross a line now and then. It's a matter of how often, and how well he learns.

Kreider is getting a reputation around the league of being reckless.

Yup. He'll learn, hopefully. Takes time with aggressive power forwards like that. Gotta learn your own strength, and like they covered on the broadcast, exactly what you can and can't get away with.

There's a lot of nuance to this game you just have to learn with experience. Going skates-up on Price last season, for example, was another one of those situations you just have to learn.

Valriera
10-27-2014, 07:55 PM
Can't agree with the bad penalty thing - that defenseman stopped way short of the boards in an attempt to get Kreider to barrel into him. He succeeded, and then got wrecked. Watch the replay again, the guy stops ten feet short of the boards and Kreider even tries to get out of the way. Soccer players do that all the time, except they're not running nearly as fast as these guys skate. Boarding penalty, fine, even game misconduct to enforce an important message, fine, but there's clearly no intent on this play to do anything but get the puck.

Meh - I just saw the replay again, I take some of that back. I still think Kreider was trying to get out of the way but he had plenty of time to see him turn around. I still don't think it was as terrible of a penalty as most but definitely a lot less of that defenseman's fault as it looked. MB.

Not really. Brodin didn't play it that well, but he didn't stop. He was slowing to try to intercept the puck, where Kreider didn't actually reduce speed at all. He just let all his energy go forward through Brodin, who was in a really vulnerable position.

I don't know if he'll be suspended over this, I doubt it, but the onus is still on the hitter in a case like this to be fully aware of the fact that they're essentially in the "warning zone" for hits on players — especially players whose numbers are facing you.

TwoMinutesForNothing
10-27-2014, 08:01 PM
The call on Kreider was correct, however I think it technically should have been interference on Brodin. He stopped way short of the puck and cut Kreider off on his route to the puck. Obviously they would never call it on that play though.

Shane Falco
10-27-2014, 08:01 PM

It's not even "dirty". It's just poor awareness — something John Moore has in spades.

John Moore was the last player suspended by Player Safety. That bodes awful for him, but I hope it means the end of him on the team. He is no awareness and dishes out very reckless hits because of it. That elbow... c'mon, that's not just awareness.

I felt that way last season. Moore is meant to play a checking role. He doesn't complement offensive players. He's a great player on the cycle and grinding out goals, but that warrants a spot on the 4th or at best 3rd line with comparable players. Mueller at least has a shred of offensive skill in his body.

You realize he has three shutouts in his last five games, right? This isn't a scrub. He's a good goaltender.

Of course I realize that. But 4 shutouts in 6 games is an extreme hot-streak / abberation even for the best goalies, and there's no reason we shouldn't be able to score a single

Girardi is a AHL journeyman. He's basically a shot-blocking Blake Partlett.

Staal is missing assignments, especially from behind the net to covering the slot. The revolving door of bottom-pair D playing top-4 minutes doesn't help though.

Brassard and Zuccarello are playing like total shit. They're much better than this, especially Zucc. Cut the shit.

Where's Marty? Isn't he a future hall of famer? Does he know the season started? Not only is he consistently a non-factor who rarely touches the puck during his shifts, but when he gets prime opportunities he's missing the net! Bear down and focus, damnit. You've done it 1000 times. Put the puck where it belongs.

McDonagh needs to play like McDonagh. He can be a Doughty/Suter impact player and right now he's playing like Joni Pitkanen. Come on Ry.

Nash is overdue for a goal. If he doesn't score tonight he'll have 8 goals in 9 games. That's inexcusable.

Lundqvist is playing like he's a mere mortal. We know he isn't. Get your mojo back, Henke!

I don't usually give up til we're dead in the water. While we're not playing up to the potential we were when we made the cup final (see: Made Cup Final), we have good pieces and are missing even more. We've had some turnover and need to find new chemistry. A bad stretch does not make a season.
