Thanks for nothing, Lundqvist (and your Ranger pals)

Less than five minutes to go, Rangers up 2-1 and all they need is for their all-world goalie to make a few more saves to keep them in the playoff race.

What does "King" Henrik Lundqvist do?

He gives up a king softie to Tomas Kaberle (his first in 16 games) from a near-impossible angle that Kaberle somehow snuck in between Lundqvist's skates as he rotated off the right post.

Then of course, Toronto won it in overtime on Nikolai Kulemin's wraparound goal that Lundqvist was too busy flailing around in his crease to stop.

Tough night for Bruins fans and the tank.

The Isles beat Columbus in OT, which is good (the BJs get a point, too), but Toronto is now three points behind Carolina, who got shellacked by Atlanta (funny, but where was that offense against Toronto two nights ago?) and Florida, who is trailing Ottawa.

But the way the Rangers lost this one...a game they about had in the bag after going up 2-0 early, is typical of how things have gone lately. Toronto is not that good, but give them credit- their AHL offense is coming to play every night.

The Rangers ought to be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves. Especially Lundqvist. He let a lot of people down tonight.


  1. I like what you have to say about some prospects, but man you whine alot.

  2. *Shrug* Well, if you don't like the whining you can always hit the road, jack, or cody, or whatever your name is.

  3. I'd hate to see the B's lose out on a top 2 pick because of this late season surge by the Leafs and some tanking from the other teams.

  4. It could happen; some may call it whining, but when you see *how* the Leafs have been winning games lately, the frustration factor is definitely there for Bruins fans.

    But, hey- it's not the end of the world if the Bruins fall out of the top-2 as a result of Toronto's late surge. There are still some good players there at 3-5, which is as low as Boston will go.
