    Honestly, I don't want them losing but if it keeps them where they are in the standings, then so be it. That said, I want them winning more than losing down the stretch here.

    They dominated the game. They just lost. It's totally fine. Win one lose one is a A-plus strategy now until the playoffs to maintain first wild card positioning.

    Yeah I guess that's the upside of the current situation. They can maintain cruise control and play 0.500 hockey while letting their injured guys take their time and recover slowly.

    Yea - I'd probably prefer to be playing better than .500 hockey going in though. I don't like the idea of sort of limping in.

    Did you actually watch this performance? The NYR played a 20 minute game and were their usual selves at home.

    The Rangers outshot the Lightning 13-3 in the first period and could have had a multiple goal lead if not for some big saves from Budaj, who stopped Chris Kreider on a breakaway 43 seconds into the game and Rick Nash twice from the slot midway through the period.


    "The pace we carried in the first period, [we] should have been able to do that, make the same plays in the second and third, which our guys didn't do," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "Obviously it wasn't good enough."

    They said it

    "We played the right way in the first period. We advanced pucks, we got pucks in their end and we had good possession time and some good opportunities, which we didn't do in the second and the third. We barely had any looks, any possession time. Just getting pucks in deep but not forechecking the right way and not winning any board battles, so the puck is automatically out of their end and there's a good chance it's coming into yours. There's no doubt that our second and our third were not good enough tonight to get a win." -- Rangers coach Alain Vigneault

    I actually am praying they catch the Bruins and make the Playoffs as the 3 seed over there, and knock out whoever they play (Sens or Canadians).. We would roll them in the Playoffs. And since I live down here in Tampa, I'd get to go to the games lol, so maybe that's my bias. But I am all for them making the Playoffs, they don't scare me at all.
