Why We Love the Stanley Cup Bakeoffs (Rangers Weak on the Puck Edition)

First, full disclosure:

As we might have mentioned previously, the hardwatching staff has been a New York Rangers fan for over half a century. But we’ve also grown to like the Los Angeles Kings a lot over this Stanley Cup Playoff season.

So this is sort of a win/(not) win Stanley Cup Finals for us.

That said, the Blueshirts totally blew last night’s Game 1. After the first period, the Kings pretty much skated rings around them. Exhibit Whatever: Drew Doughty’s deke-for-the-ages to tie the game 2-2 in the second period.

 

 

The Rangers proceeded to go 12 minutes without a shot on goal. So they were lucky to even get to overtime.

During which they actually showed some signs of life, until Dan Girardi went weak on the puck and Justin Williams happened.

 

 

See you Saturday, yeah?
