Rangers Get Humiliated In Game 3 By The Bruins

I have watched Ranger hockey a long time. What took place Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden will easily rank as 1 of the most disappointing  nights in this fans memory.

Forget any of the stats, that being shots on goal, hits, anything. The rangers showed no will to compete, rare for this bunch, and lost 2-1 in game 3 of the eastern conference semifinals. The bruins now lead the series 3-0 and appear poised to sweep the rangers Thursday back at MSG.

The Rangers were brutal. Pull out the DVR and count how many times the Rangers put on at least a 10 second surge in the Bruins end. let me know if you get to 1 time, that’s how bad the Rangers were.

If not for netminder Henrik Lundqvist it would have been 7-1. Lundqvist stopped 2 brakeaways in the 1st period alone. Chris Kelly and Tyler Seguin both had uncontested chances against Henry only to be stoned by the goalie,

The stats say the Rangers had 24 shots on goal. Really? The stats say the Rangers had  37 hits. Really? What i watched was  a ranger team that hit nothing, passed nothing, shot nothing, and competed at a nothing level.

The Rangers lone tally was in the 1st period on a shot from the point that was tipped in by Taylor Pyatt. That’s it. Again go back and see how many times New York had  a “flurry” on offense, defined by at least 10 seconds of action in the Bruins end.

Boston stayed patient while dominating territory. They finally broke through on Lundqvist when Johnny Boychuck blasted home a shot from the point to knot the game at 1. Every Ranger fan watching this fiasco probably had thst sinking feeling. Only way the Rangers would score again is if Boston made a drastic mistake. they didn’t and the Rangers didn’t.

Daniel Paille scored the game winner with just 3:31 left in the contest. You can guess how many times the Rangers threatened after that. What is less then 1? NONE!

It was that bad from this viewers eyes. I would like to think the Rangers could get a game in this series. After what i saw Tuesday night I have doubts if they could even get a rally
