Henrik Lundqvist has had more than enough to complain about during his tenure with the Rangers, but to his credit he has kept his mouth shut. That was until recently. It started last week when he questioned the team's toughness and now his frustration boiled over again as he took some shots at the Rangers pop gun offense last night... “We did a lot of good things, but it's getting old. We just have to put the puck in the net, that's how you win games." He added... "Special teams are going to be critical going down the stretch here. Our PK, which starts with me, have to be almost 100% here, because (laughs) we're in a position where we don't have the luxury of a lot of goals." ...as I sympathized with Lundqvist after his toughness comments, I'm again with him here. Yes, the team had a ton of offensive pressure and it's hard to complain about 45 shots, but I'm actually going to complain about the 45 shots. That could have been one of the easiest 44-save performances in the history of the NHL. Very few chances from in close and absolutely zero traffic in front of the goal. I have to assume at this point, except for Callahan, the team is collectively allergic to the blue paint in the crease. I can't figure out any other reason why the team refuses to go there. ...officially time to reunite Hags-Step-Nash. Get it done Torts! 2nd line should be Kreider-Miller-Cally and the third line Pyatt-Richards-Gabby. I thought the top line was awful last night despite Gabby's eight shots and a goal. So many missed opportunities. ...and poor Lundqvist, I almost can't watch his post game comments anymore. The guy looks like someone stole his new puppy. Would be nice if his teammates would bail him out for once, seeing how many times he's done it for them over the years. Here's video of Lundqvist's post game comments...
