I don’t know what else to say. I’ve said it so many times in the last 12 months. This is what the Rangers are.
And nothing sums it up better than the following linescore.
In their last seven games, over 21 periods (not counting an overtime), the linescore looks like this:
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 3 3 3 2 3 0 0 0 0 0 0.
Actually, I have a lot more to say. I just don’t have time to say it today. Plus it would be a lot easier to list the players who played OK in Montreal than to list those who didn’t. You can start with all six defensemen, who were putrid.
I’ll stop back later.
Here’s Larry Brooks’ story from Montreal, where Capt. Sean Avery had some interesting things to say.
