Nothing like a Rangers goal to shut up Pierre McGuire.
The NBC Sports analyst was going on and on in the second period about how awful the New York power play breakout was, how it was "free-lancing."
Shortly after his tirade, Ryan McDonagh scored to basically zip McGuire's lips. The goal gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead, but they went on to lose Game 3 to the visiting Bruins 2-1 to fall in a 3-0 series hole.
But back to McGuire. He had Twitter all riled up.
Here are a few good ones:
Pierre McGuire sure is mad. Oh, really Pierre? What team do you play for?

The nerve of McDonagh interrupting a loud, lengthy Pierre McGuire lecture about how he used to coach and what is unacceptable.

McGuire did have a point about the power play. The Rangers are a lousy 2-for-38 with the man advantage in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs.
But he got a little spicy again once the game was almost, comparing the Bruins...
