Entering Game Three, the Rangers find themselves in a very similar situation. They come home down 2-0, after dropping the first two in Boston, the second one in epicly poor fashion. Just like last round, the Rangers find themselves in need of holding serve at MSG and sending the series back to Boston tied at two games a piece. This team did it once before, and they are perfectly capable of doing it again. This series is far from oer.

    Lots of Nash/Chara juggling. Clear what both coaches are doing.

  2. Jeff P says:

    After period one, I can say that the Bruins are objectively a better team this year.

    • Dave says:

      They’ve been playing .500 hockey since March, so I’m surprised the Rangers look so outmatched.

      • Jeff P says:

        To me, Rangers look tired – also surprising, since they are rolling 4 lines much more than before under Torts.

        If not for Lundquist… This game should have been 4 or 5 to 1 for the Bruins by now.

  3. Jerry says:

    Dave do you know the announcers of this game who are doing the play by play

  4. Dave says:

    Side note: Pierre was dead-on about the PP in the first period. I never say that, but he was absolutely right.
