Did not expect NYR to go on the power play after that
why it’s a clean hit by Trouba and an attempted tantrum by Lawrence
Maybe have a little bit of awareness out there domi. Trouba is a headhunter
He’ll get away with that one based on Domi’s head changing position right before contact.
Can’t help but be happy it was Domi though.
I'm not saying it's a bad call, it's just not ever called that way
Especially with such a garbage player like Trouba
This is why you have to do something about the first hit. Then he has repeat offender status and you can give him an outrageous sentence this time.
Instead he skates (no pun intended) on both. This league doesn’t actually give a shit about brain damage.
These announcers really want the Rangers to lie down and just take shit from the Canes
Refs not letting these guys play the game
DeAngelo saying “let’s do it” to Reaves is something everyone wants to see play out
Gonna be honest, this game feels over. Doubt we’ve got 3 goals in us given this series so far.
“Why has their been no carry over from last game?”
Uhhh…did she miss the guy instigating a fight after last game getting his head removed tonight?
And now we’re missing yawning nets with clean shots. Fuckin a Necas is bad
Rangers got dominated this period and came away with a goal advantage on it. And now a late PP.
Well, we can make the Finals without having to win on the road so the plan is still a go
Know this feel bro
Copp having a hell of a night
Looks like we have a best of 3 on our hands
Carolina being the dirty team but all you sickos in here who hate the Rangers for playing physical are silent
lol at that resulting in a NYR PP
Credit to y’all for using the Domi thing for motivation, but uh….come on
He’s been starving for attention since playoffs started
Domi at it again
what a little weirdo
Almost saw some WWE shit
Domi was terrified of Reeves
You gonna pretend like Reaves wasn’t slashing him in the legs 2 or 3 times?
I am yes
Have been against the whole “let’s add grit” POV the Rangers went with this past offseason, but it’s finally paying dividends in this series. Carolina isn’t matching their physicality without taking penalties (though I’ll admit the Rangers got the benefit of some calls tonight as well).
Either way, a more physical series clearly favors the Rangers.
I really hate this narrative and try to resist it too. One of my Canes friends is insistent that an “enforcer” is what we need to get through the playoffs and I just don’t buy it. We’ve definitely added some playoff experience/grit type guys in Ian Cole and Derek Stepan, but it hasn’t materially changed our playoff run. Like I get the desire to have it given what the Lightning have done with some of their additions over the years, but it just shouldn’t matter. Of course as long the league changes the rules for playoffs maybe in just full of shit.
Feels like Carolina should have spent more time adding grit over insurrectionists
Carolina and Toronto are in the same spot the Lightning were 5 years ago. The lightning kept going with the fancy. Once they got their 3rd and 4th full of gritty players, changed everything
Tampa had 2 conference finals and a SCF appearance before they broke through, not seeing the Toronto comparison
The Columbus series was the monstrosity and to their credit, didn’t blow it up
I feel like Florida may have just gone through that process that Tampa did getting run out of the playoffs. Question is how they respond to it.
Carolina is an interesting one. They’re a very well put together roster top to bottom that seems to be good at everything but not necessarily great at anything. I’m not sure they have the top end talent to deal with Tampa/Colorado (nor do the Rangers). They haven’t showed the depth scoring or toughness to make up for it. Kinda remind me of a few old Rangers teams that are just a really solid B+ across the board.
Florida reminds me of the Caps under Boudreau. Regular season juggernaut, amazing core, not all that tough defensively or getting scrappy goals
Probably a corsi monster like we were and the analytic nerds will convince themselves they don’t need to change
Did not see Calgary getting whipped like this
Yeah did Edmonton *actually* turn the corner as a franchise?!
Edmonton colorado is going to be amazing
Edmonton Colorado going to be a lot of fun
mixed feelings about Evander’s resurgence but he’s playing fucking great
Awful human but I’m not going to let that prevent me from rooting for Mcdavid
The lack of an elite scorer who can manufacture their own shot has been a glaring weakness the last few years under Brind’Amour. Not saying it’s his fault, but as we’ve improved each year we've hit the same ceiling when it comes to scoring. This year we got some elite goalkeeping from Freddie Andersen that masked some issues, but the PP has been shit since the break and at 5v5 we just don’t have the top end skill to consistently beat playoff teams.
Kassian trying the Forsberg deke is hilarious to me
this series is incredible
Holy shit I love this series
Smith looked like the Iceland goalie when Russ hits the knuckle puck.
