Game 5: The Edmonton McDavid’s

The Rangers are back at it this afternoon, taking on Connor McDavid and whatever cast of characters the Edmonton front office has put around him. I kind of feel bad for McDavid, as his talent is being wasted because Peter Chiarelli and crew have no idea how to assemble a supporting cast of characters. Imagine McDavid as your Iron Man, leading the charge, but his supporting cast is just a dozen Hawkeyes.

As for the Rangers, they are fresh off a dramatic win against San Jose. It was one that was unexpected, and also one that will likely be few and far between. Today though, we get the ideal top pairing of Skjei-Shattenkirk. We also see Howden on the second line, a reward for his great play. This is as close as the lineup will be to ideal, given the makeup.

Rangers Lineup:

Oilers Lineup: 

Blue line TBD, I guess.

Crazy Prediction: McDavid doesn’t get a point.

Game time is 1pm.

    I like the speed kills Zib Kreider and Jesper line. As bad as the Rangers defence had been, Edmonton is just as brutal and Talbot hasn’t been anywhere near as good as Henk.

    My fearless prediction…the Rangers win their second game in a row.

    Unless they find some offense somewhere, they are doomed to lose every game like this. Torture. And what is up with Kreider? Chtyil looks lost to me. Not sure why he’s up over Lias.

      Fair points…I would trade Kreider tonight….Chytil needs to pick it up

        Quinn intimated in postgame he’s moving Chytil to wing. Smart move…

    Good skate … both teams similar with the exception of McDavid ( that guy is the real deal ) … Staal with a nice play for once , forwards looked a little better in the D-zone , bone head play by Hank heading the puck that was over the net which almost cost a goal and had to make a huge recovery save for no reason. We’re gonna see lots of effort and coming up a bit short . Bad no call on the Hayes play right to a penalty from Names and the game winner as a result

      They did a pretty good job of bottling McDavid most of the game. But like Crosby, give him an inch and it’s all over. Biggest problem for us is we have a completely nonexistent offense. Mika good today, but Kreider, Vesey, etc all MIA. The defense/Hank were good. I like Claesson…
