Our fourth line was our best line the last two games and they played great, but it’s going to be tough to win two games against Philly when the fourth line’s the best line.He's right. Jody Shelley seemed to be the only Ranger with the sense to drive to the net besides scoring the lone goal -- he recorded the most shots on goal for the Rangers during Sunday's game.
That’s what makes my stomach turn today, 48 hours after, is that we had zero top guys show up. And the way we fought to get back into the race, no matter how (anybody feels) about it, we were there and we played a ballsy game against Philly in our building, and we had zero top guys show up in Philly, which is despicable.Torts failed to connect the dots that this has become a pattern. Over the past 3 seasons, the Rangers' seasons have been depressingly familiar -- retooling, free-agent signings, jettisoning of bad signings, borderline adequate defense, erratic scoring, superb goaltending, late runs to get into the playoffs, and finally heart-breaking defeats. It's deja vu, Groundhog Day, a recurring nightmare all over again. In each of those 3 concluding games, the Rangers' defense scrambled to protect Henrik who had no margin for failure. Sunday, he turned away 46 shots.
