    Looking back, I see he was a 3rd round pick. Plays like a 1st rounder in my view. Will be interesting how he develops in time.

    True still have our concerns and we all know the up roar that would've happened if they lost to that said "4th string goalie"

    Well that's simply not true. Just "making the playoffs" is not a good enough outcome for this team anymore.

    Looking back on that third period, the first ten minutes of it was an outrageous mika zibanejad show. I mean the dude scored three goals by himself...two passes to people who could have been traffic cones and would have scored, and then that wrist shot on the power play I'm not sure the goalie would have saved it even if he could see it. Outstanding performance from Mika.

    What do you expect? 4 goals each period? They scored 6 goals and won the game, that is fine for now.

    Finally AV put the KZB line back together and they were instantly a huge factor. When we dont have superstar forwards on the team, we need to have 4 good lines that all can contribute. I think this was (atleast almost) the best lines this team can ice.

    Boo is looking like a really good adition to the 4th line. Speed, PK and he has actually impressed me the most on offense. 3 assist in his first game and could easily had 1-2 more yesterday.

    Nieves,Grab,Fast - Nieves might have created the most grade A chances after Zib. They were fast and good. Fast was good. No bad. Goalie stole a few from this line.
    DD,Miller,Vesey - VC had an impact his first 3 shifts and got us a lead early. DD had a good game and had more than 1 good shift, Miller was OK, not bad
    Hayes,Zuc,Nash - least effective but still big goal for Zuc who could have had two. Hayes couple of nice plays, one bad play led to penalty shot. Nash had his worst game of the season. Lacked jump, no good moves to the net, but still solid on D.

    Rolled 4/12 all game. Only 1 guy had a bad game. 1-2 others were OK

    That's pretty good.

    Maybe it was the D? Skjei was good. Staal pretty good, he's graded on a curve. McD was fine, not much O. Shatty typical good PP plus terrible turnover. Smith not so bad, except on Perron, that he should have been benched. Kampfer looked rusty. Overall. not terrible, but needs to improve significantly.

    Hank was good, one rebound was not his fault at all. Let's cut him slack on the Penalty shot.

    AV did not suck or over coach, and managed the forward group well. Coached like his job depended on it, but didn't panic.

    Team came from down 2 in the final period and won going away. Didn't look shaky on the 6-5. Used the tragedy to come together and create something positive.

    Not taking much bad away from tonight. Actually gives us and the team hope.

    All that said....
    Prepare for shocking jolt back down to earth in Tampa. AV may have bought himself a Florida vacation, but he is still on the hot seat and probably needs a win in these next two, to avoid being smoked.
    sg3 how are Ranger fans upset? You called me out before, but I don't think you are reading. Just assuming and generalizing.

    There are a bunch of us who are trying to be objective, specific and fair when we provide analysis. My above post was in response to a useless negative generalization. Now it is time to tell you and longtimefan that if everything always smells like lavender and roses, how do you know when you are standing in shit or at your daughter's wedding? Can you tell the difference?

    Zuc, was thinking the same. Particularly about the lineup, the lines, and rolling 4 effective lines.

    And how about Nieves?!! Pleasantly surprised and how good he looks distributing passes to the net while streaking down the ice. He puts nice pressure on the D. Had a nice game w/o Buch on his line. That is a good sign.

    Fuck me, I passed out drunk on the couch after work and woke up in the middle of the second. Then I took the dog for a walk and came back to see it was tied. I might have to rewatch this one.

    Great to get a W.

    Yea, I thought they did a much better job of rolling 4. Moving Fast to the 4th makes a big difference in that regard and helps take some pressure off of Boo I think.

    Well they were down 4-2 after the 2nd period thanks to their uninspiring play, brutal turnovers, and poor defense. They give up odd-man rushes like they've never played hockey before and they still cannot start the fucking game without almost giving up a goal in the first minute.

    Then, in the 3rd period, they got 2 goals on 3 powerplays against a Vegas team that was on its 2nd night of a back-to-back with a shit goaltender with a whopping 1 game of NHL experience.

    This team still has a ton to prove at 5-on-5, their bottom-6 still struggles to contribute fucking anything, and they're playing a very dangerous style of hockey where they go down early and have to come from behind by multiple goals to compete.

    Only caught the 3rd period which was good but I'm not sold on beating an expansion team with a 4th string goalie.

    True, though most of the forward group played hard and made some plays. For the first time this year Nash's play was very uninspired. Miller started slow, the D certainly wasn't inspired.
    This team still has a ton to prove at 5-on-5, their bottom-6 still struggles to contribute fucking anything, and they're playing a very dangerous style of hockey where they go down early and have to come from behind by multiple goals to compete.
    Sure, and they need to come out and stayed focussed. They have a ton to prove, but they needed to start with beating Vegas last night. There was a lot of good in that game, not mostly bad. That was my point. The wins have to start somewhere. Things were desperate, newspaper says coach has 1 game left and it turned into a character win.

    For those saying it is just one game ... well your a damn right. They need to build from it. We will watch and see. Tampa may spank us.

    This team needs to string a group of wins together. Why would any of us be sold that this is even a playoff team? I'm not. The roster, as constructed has holes and issues. If they get swept in Florida, this will mean little and the shit will be hitting the fan.

    you can win and be unhapppy with your team’s performance for lots of reasons (sloppy, bad penalties, playing down to level of opponents, missed assignments, soft goals) just as you can be happy with your team in a loss (bad puck luck, fluky plays, good compete but didn’t score enough to win)

    so don’t call me a bad fan if i criticize my team in victory. there are a lot of issues with this team worth discussing, and no one should be calling people out here at bsbh for being critical after a victory.

    Seems to be a common theme with a few members around here. I just ignore it. Not getting on your team when they are playing like shit doesn't make you anymore of a fan over those who do. That whole mentality is just ridiculous.
