I am big Talbot fan and would love to see them in the cup this year. My personal opinion, the Rangers played some of the best hockey when Lundqvist had the neck injury two seasons ago. There was a different energy and attitude on the ice with him [Talbot] in net, and that's what is going on up in Edmonton right now. The Oiler have potential.

Lundqvist is going to be the goalie that everyone said was the best, however I don't know how some can say that when he's never raised The Cup over his head. And his time has run out in my opinion.

Frustrated Rangers fan!
Lundqvist the best? The best at what? He does not even crack the top ten list of great goalies. On ESPN this morning they referred to him as "King" Hendriqt Lundvqist - I have asked in the past and will ask again; what exactly is he "king" of?

Agreed ! Henrik will have to move back to Sweden to keep his crown, he is now officially The Baron of Broadway

We have changed his title, after a peasant uprising to : The Baron of Broadway

He is now 35 and playing without a good defense, it is sad that mgm't couldn't find the right pieces in the past 6 years .

But is this the same person who owns the hapless Knicks ? Yes it is !

Question answered.

I was hoping for the Rangers too in that series. The NHL has always been a follow the leader league, and if Ottawa keeps winning everyone will start playing a 1-3-1 trap!!!

The year we played the Kings was some good hockey for the Rangers.

But in my opinion, the best Ranger hockey was played when "The King" was out with his neck injury. He comes back to the ice and level of play went south and we didn't even give PIT a run for their money in the post season. Nash and Lundqvist are the two highest paid players and I don't believe the return on investment is there with those two. Even though the Oilers didn't win last night, just look at that team, their age and salaries are not even close to what the Rangers have, and yet they played some excellent hockey this year.

He is a -5 over the past 2 games, but he was also on the ice for 2 Caps power play goals, so he's been involved in helping give up at least 7 of the past 9 goals.

While he occasionally makes outstanding play, he usually makes horrible decisions when he has the puck - trying to force passes rather than be smart, or just outright turning it over. He plays the man without the puck, when the man WITH the puck skates by where he just was and scores. He generally has no idea where the puck is until the horn sounds to let him know it's in the back of the net. He'll play the man when he should play the puck or he'll play the puck (when 2 of his teammates are already doing that), leaving another man open.

It's not all on him, since nobody else seems to either play their man or the puck with any consistency. They behave like 8-year-olds playing soccer - everyone goes to where the puck is headed rather than playing position and being ready beforehand. Multiple times last night all Pens players were on the same side of the ice, out of position. They were doing the fore-checking for the Caps - chasing the puck all around their own end and getting tired, letting the Caps play the four corners and then when the Pens were so tired they were just standing around, they'd go in for the kill.

Give the Caps credit - they took their time to figure out the Pens' weaknesses and they exploited them easily. They stand 3 guys at the blue line and drop their 2 defensemen back, forcing the Pens to dump and chase but failing to forecheck before the Caps clear it. Pens need to stop dumping it in every time and do short chips between the blue line and the defense. They can't score goals if they can't ever get control of the puck in the offensive zone.

The remainder of the NHL playoffs will consist of one game a night during the Conference Finals (if both series go seven games).

We’re down to four in the NHL playoffs.

After surviving yet another series against the Washington Capitals, the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins have home ice against the surprising Ottawa Senators in the Eastern Conference Finals. Can Ottawa shock the world? Is Pittsburgh healthy enough to get through another series? Is Erik Karlsson literally infallible? We’ll find out.

After surviving a Game 7 of their own, the Anaheim Ducks will look to break through to their first Stanley Cup Final since winning the whole thing ten years ago. In their way are the Nashville Predators, riding the wave as the sexy pick to win the Cup after sweeping the Chicago Blackhawks and getting by the St. Louis Blues in an easier-than-it-looks-on-paper six games

Two rounds to go. Praise to the Hockey Gods.

Game 1: Sat., May 13 at 7 p.m. — Ottawa 2, Pittsburgh 1, OT (recap)

Good God do these playoffs suck.

Anyway - If you Ranger guys don't know (because they don't get attention here) in the IIHF World Championships Henrik Lundqvist is played great for Team Sweden and he will be there #1 goalie throughout the playoff round. .

The top 8 teams are about 100% NHL players. Russia and Finland have a few KHL stars who could easily play in the NHL. These teams will be far, far better than the Olympic teams next year. I watched USA v. Russia yesterday and it was 10X better than any NHL playoff game I've seen this year. As a Blackhawks fan it felt weird cheering for the Wings' Jimmy Howard stop on Artemi Panarin on a breakaway to ice the USA win yesterday. Kevin Hayes scored two in the USA win.

Who is going to play in the Olympics with the NHL players having to skip it. Any ideas?

It will be a combination of European league players, North American junior and NCAA players and maybe a few older players. rumor is that Jerome Iginla and Shane Doan want to play on it before they go into full retirement. It looks like KHL players will play. Pavel Datsuyk and Ilya Kovalchuk just won the KHL Championship for Dynamo Moscow.

USA got eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Finland. Harri Sateri who was drafted and North American rights owned by the San Jose Sharks but wants to stay in Europe for his family, shut out Team USA.
