April 2009


Cialis fast delivery usa “For of all sad words of tongue or pen, cialis fast delivery usa the saddest are these: ‘It might have been!'”

Cialis fast delivery usa I know John Greenleaf Whittier wasn’t a Rangers fan because he died in 1892. Cialis fast delivery usa However, cialis fast delivery usa that quote pretty much sums what it means to be fan of the New York Rangers.

Cialis fast delivery usa The list of things that “might have been” are too numerous to list in a mere blog. Cialis fast delivery usa One would need to write book to detail all of them. Cialis fast delivery usa They are as diverse as the Rangers being forced to play “home” playoff games on the road because the circus took precedence at Madison Square Garden to Jean Ratelle breaking his ankle in the regular season – thus rendering him ineffective in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins to the Rangers passing on Mike Bossy not once, cialis fast delivery usa but twice in the 1997 NHL Draft.

Cialis fast delivery usa However, cialis fast delivery usa it seems that the Rangers-Capitals playoff series crammed 82 games worth of “might have beens” into just seven games. Cialis fast delivery usa

Cialis fast delivery usa The Rangers inefficient power play has been a story all season long. Cialis fast delivery usa Had the Rangers power play been average, cialis fast delivery usa the Blueshirts fortunes would have been far different. Cialis fast delivery usa Perhaps they would won the Atlantic Division and been in a position to make a true run in the playoffs.

Cialis fast delivery usa How different would Game 3 have been if Ryan Callahan’s shot did not deflect off Nicklas Backstrom’s stick and stay out of the net? Washington not only dodged the bullet, cialis fast delivery usa but they extended their lead to 2-0. Cialis fast delivery usa How different would the outcome have been if the Rangers ended the first period tied at one?

Cialis fast delivery usa A similar question could be asked in reference to Game 6 when Nikolai Zherdev’s backhander missed an open net prior to Viktor Kozlov scoring to make it 4-1? A 3-2 deficit would have been much more manageable.

Cialis fast delivery usa Even a Rangers win in Game 4 is not without its questions. Cialis fast delivery usa What happens if Sean Avery does not take two of the most foolish penalties a player could take with his team clinging to a one-goal lead in the third period? Not only would the Rangers’ victory been less agita-filled, cialis fast delivery usa but Avery would not have been benched in Game 5. Cialis fast delivery usa Would the presence of Avery in the lineup for Game 5 have made a difference? We will never know.

Cialis fast delivery usa Of course, cialis fast delivery usa had Avery not been benched in Game 5, cialis fast delivery usa then John Tortorella’s action during Game 5, cialis fast delivery usa and subsequent one-game suspension, cialis fast delivery usa do not make the Rangers bench boss look like the biggest hypocrite in the world. Cialis fast delivery usa Would it made a difference if the coach was behind the bench for Game 6? Tortorella finally addressed the issue and offered his opinion.

Cialis fast delivery usa “Sure I regret not being there, cialis fast delivery usa” Tortorella explained to A.J. Cialis fast delivery usa Perez of USA Today. Cialis fast delivery usa “I want to be with the team. Cialis fast delivery usa Do I think that had an effect as far as the outcome? No. Cialis fast delivery usa (Assistant Coach) Jim Schoenfeld is a very good coach.

Cialis fast delivery usa Of course, cialis fast delivery usa the whole mess did take something out Avery in terms of his play in Game 6. Cialis fast delivery usa The Rangers uber-pest was just a shell of himself – something which changed in Game 7 when he was the best Ranger on the ice.

Cialis fast delivery usa “I thought Sean played well. Cialis fast delivery usa Where Sean played is where he has to play – he has to be on edge, cialis fast delivery usa he has to be right there on the edge, cialis fast delivery usa but stay within himself. Cialis fast delivery usa It’s a tough thing for a player …. Cialis fast delivery usa There are some things that go on around him during a game that doesn’t go on around a lot of other players, cialis fast delivery usa” Tortorella said to Steve Zipay of Newsday.

Cialis fast delivery usa Washington’s victory helped erase a “might have been” of their own by exorcising the ghost of last season when they went down three games to one to the Philadelphia Flyers before losing Game 7 at home in overtime.

Cialis fast delivery usa “This is huge, cialis fast delivery usa” Mike Green offered to Thomas Boswell of the Washington Post. Cialis fast delivery usa “We worked so hard the last two years. Cialis fast delivery usa To be put back in the same place – that is not a good building block. Cialis fast delivery usa If you don’t win this game, cialis fast delivery usa you are taking steps backward.”

Cialis fast delivery usa Even though they won the series the Capitals must wonder how their fortunes would have gone if Jose Theodore hadn’t been so awful in Game 1. Cialis fast delivery usa If he had played well enough to lose in those first two games, cialis fast delivery usa it is possible that Simeon Varlamov never plays in the series – and there we have the biggest “what might have been” for the Rangers.

Cialis fast delivery usa What would have happened in the series if Capitals regular backup goaltender Brent Johnson had not been injured? If Johnson was healthy, cialis fast delivery usa it would have been more likely for Boudreau to go to the veteran Johnson considering he had played well during the regular season against the Rangers. Cialis fast delivery usa

Cialis fast delivery usa If Johnson had been in goal for this series, cialis fast delivery usa the Rangers would be preparing for a showdown with the Bruins instead of cleaning out their lockers for yet another early Summer vacation.

Cialis soft Unfortunately, cialis soft for the Rangers and their fans, cialis soft the memory of the 2009 playoffs will last a lifetime as well. Cialis soft

Cialis soft The Washington Capitals became the 21st team in NHL history to overcome a three games to one deficit with their 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers. Cialis soft Unlike Games 5 and 6 when the rangers offered token resistance, cialis soft the Blueshirts played with a renewed purpose and matched the Capitals intensity and urgency. Cialis soft The one thing they could not match in Game 7, cialis soft or the series for that matter, cialis soft was Washington’s ability to score.

Cialis soft “I thought we checked our (tails) off tonight, cialis soft” Rangers coach John Tortorella told Michael Obernauer of the Daily News. Cialis soft “We’re not an offensive juggernaut, cialis soft and that comes back and bites us. Cialis soft We’re just not developing enough offense.”

Cialis soft Truer words were never spoken by a coach. Cialis soft The Rangers managed just 11 goals in seven games and four of those were against Jose Theodore in Game 1 and two of their three goals in Game 6 came in garbage time. Cialis soft Given that output, cialis soft it might be time to recognize that Tom Renney’s defensive-first style did not cause the Rangers offensive woes. Cialis soft Rather, cialis soft Renney had to revert to that style because of Glen Sather’s inability to bring in consistent scorers, cialis soft never mind 40 goal scorers.

Cialis soft Game 7 was a tale of two games. Cialis soft The Rangers did an outstanding job of forcing the Capitals to defend their own zone as the Rangers aggressive forecheck and puck possession limited Washington to two shots in the first period and just 11 through the first 40 minutes. Cialis soft Tortorella’s team worked a perfect road strategy against the Capitals in Game 7 in the first two periods. Cialis soft They kept it a low scoring/low chances game which limited the damage the likes of Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin could do – despite Semin’s tying goal which deflected in off Ryan Callahan’s stick. Cialis soft

Cialis soft “It was probably the most we kept the puck all series, cialis soft” Tortorella explained to Dan Rosen of nhl.com. Cialis soft “We couldn’t develop good scoring chances even with the puck, cialis soft and during the (third) period I think they turned it up a notch and we ended up backing up a little.”

Cialis soft The only problem with the way the Rangers played the first two periods was that they were not able to turn the forechecking and puck possession into goals or even good scoring chances. Cialis soft Instead, cialis soft the Blueshirts were limited to just 14 shots through two periods.

Cialis soft The third period was a reverse image of the first two periods. Cialis soft It was Washington who was controlling the puck and keeping the Rangers in their zone. Cialis soft The Blueshirts were too busy defending their zone to mount any offense – which is why they were limited to just one shot on goal in the third period and ended the game with Henrik Lundqvist still in goal as they could not add an extra attacker in the final minute.

Cialis soft “I think we were a little upset with ourselves after the second period and came out in the third and reversed it, cialis soft” Green told Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post. Cialis soft “[Coach Bruce Boudreau] addressed what we needed to do, cialis soft and finally we did it and it worked.”

Cialis soft “I’m not really sure [what happened], cialis soft” added Capitals defenseman Brian Pothier while speaking to Corey Masisak of the Washington Times. Cialis soft “We knew we weren’t playing very well, cialis soft and I think maybe we were in the locker room understanding that 20 minutes to win a series is pretty much what was going for us. Cialis soft We felt we were the better team and worked really hard all year for this. Cialis soft We found a way to squeak it out.”

Cialis soft If you think about it, cialis soft the Rangers did not lose this series in Game 7. Cialis soft They lost the series when they did not finish off the Capitals in Game 5 or 6. Cialis soft During the Rangers Stanley Cup run in 1994, cialis soft Mark Messier reminded his team that the fourth victory in a series was the hardest to get. Cialis soft It is a difficult lesson to learn – one expressed by both a veteran and a younger Ranger.

Cialis soft “We had three chances to put them away, cialis soft” Markus Naslund told Steve Zipay of Newsday. Cialis soft “It’s unfortunate. Cialis soft If we played the other two like this, cialis soft maybe we could have beaten then them.”

Cialis soft Brandon Dubinsky echoed Naslund’s regret at what might have been.

Cialis soft “We know we had them where we wanted them, cialis soft but we didn’t play very well for two straight games and left it all to chance, cialis soft” Dubinsky lamented to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Cialis soft “Game 6 at home is the one that’s really disappointing. Cialis soft We just didn’t play the way we wanted to, cialis soft and that’s really tough to take.”

Cialis soft The signs that the third period was not going to go the Rangers way reared their collective head early in the final 20 minutes. Cialis soft Daniel Girardi’s interference penalty at 1:10 of the third period helped derail any momentum the Rangers built up during the first two periods. Cialis soft The Blueshirts then fell back into their old habit of backing up in their defensive zone – a bad habit that eventually cost them late in the third period.

Cialis soft While fans will be quick to place the entire blame for the game-winning goal on Wade Redden’s shoulders need to watch the replay to see how the scoring chance developed.

Cialis soft It began when Dubinsky fired a shot high and wide to the stick side of Simeon Varlamov. Cialis soft As the puck wrapped around the left wing boards, cialis soft Naslund went in after the puck rather than take a safer approach by peeling back into the neutral zone. Cialis soft Sergei Federov picked up the loose puck at the Caps blue line and was able to skate through the neutral zone and into the Rangers end. Cialis soft It was at this point that Redden backed off as the veteran Capital beat Lundqvist high to the glove side/short side.

Cialis soft “I wanted to get back and not let him get around me, cialis soft” Redden explained to Obernauer. Cialis soft “He made a stop-up play, cialis soft got the puck by my leg, cialis soft I don’t know where it went. Cialis soft But it found the short side. Cialis soft That’s a tough one.”

Cialis soft It was one that Lundqvist felt he should have stopped.

Cialis soft “Maybe I should have kept my glove higher; I sank down a little when he stopped, cialis soft” Lundqvist described to Brooks. Cialis soft “I won’t think of it as a bad goal, cialis soft but I definitely think I could have saved it. Cialis soft I’ve saved shots like that before.”

Cialis soft As bad as Rangers might feel, cialis soft imagine what it is like to be a fan of the New Jersey Devils after their team blew a one-goal lead by allowing two goals in the final 80 seconds.

Buy viagra in canada As the Rangers and Capitals look ahead to the seventh and deciding game on Tuesday night, buy viagra in canada redemption is the key word both teams should be focusing on.

Buy viagra in canada The 2008/2009 New York Rangers have to dig deep into their souls to come up with an effort that will prevent them from being the first team in franchise history to lose a series after being three games to one (after winning their previous 12 chances). Buy viagra in canada The Blueshirts also do not want to imitate the Hartford Wolf Pack who won the first two games of the first round series only to lose the next four games and the series to the Worcester Sharks.

Buy viagra in canada The Rangers have not faced a Game 7 scenario since June 14, buy viagra in canada 1994.

Buy viagra in canada History has not been kind to the Rangers when facing a seventh and deciding game on the road. Buy viagra in canada They have lost all four of those Game 7 road games: 1939 in overtime to the Boston Bruins, buy viagra in canada 1950 in double overtime to lose the Stanley Cup to the Detroit Red Wings, buy viagra in canada 1971 to the Chicago Blackhawks, buy viagra in canada and 1974 to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Buy viagra in canada According to the NHL, buy viagra in canada league-wide history is not on the Rangers side either. Buy viagra in canada Since the best-of-seven format was introduced back in 1939, buy viagra in canada home teams have won 77 of the 122 series that have gone the full seven games (63%).

Buy viagra in canada “I believe in our guys, buy viagra in canada” Chris Drury told Michael Obernauer of the Daily News. Buy viagra in canada “I think this group’s a pretty resilient bunch. Buy viagra in canada When you get booed in your own building all year long, buy viagra in canada you change coaches, buy viagra in canada you go through a lot of stuff, buy viagra in canada make the playoffs the second-to-last game of the year – we’re ready for anything.”

Buy viagra in canada Of course, buy viagra in canada what Captain Drury left out his statement was an explanation as to why the team was not ready for anything in Games 5 and 6. Buy viagra in canada If the Rangers carry over their intensity and desperation level from those two games, buy viagra in canada then they might as well send the Wolf Pack down to the Verizon Center.

Buy viagra in canada Jim Schoenfeld said more or less the same thing when speaking to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News following Schoeny’s one game stint as head coach.

Buy viagra in canada “It doesn’t matter who’s in, buy viagra in canada who’s out. Buy viagra in canada The task at hand is the task at hand. Buy viagra in canada We have to find a way to get it done or it’s over. Buy viagra in canada It’s simple … I think our guys have enough character, buy viagra in canada have enough courage, buy viagra in canada have enough want to get it done. Buy viagra in canada If not, buy viagra in canada what’s the sense of even going to Washington?”

Buy viagra in canada The Capitals have their own ghosts they have to exorcise. Buy viagra in canada Washington was in the exact same position this time last year. Buy viagra in canada After falling behind three games to one to the Philadelphia Flyers, buy viagra in canada the Capitals forced a seventh game at home that went into overtime before Joffrey Lupul’s power play goal ended the series.

Buy viagra in canada Tuesday’s game offers former Rangers defenseman Tom Poti a chance for personal redemption because it was Poti’s penalty that paved the way for Lupul’s game-winning goal.

Buy viagra in canada “We were in the situation last year, buy viagra in canada so we have a little bit of experience with it, buy viagra in canada” Poti related to Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post. Buy viagra in canada “That was the first Game 7 for a lot of guys last year. Buy viagra in canada Maybe they won’t be as nervous at the start of the game. Buy viagra in canada We know what we have to do, buy viagra in canada and that’s play a perfect game to win the series. Buy viagra in canada Who comes out and plays the most perfect game is going to win.”

Buy viagra in canada The Rangers have to get ahead of the Capitals and play from the lead for two reasons. Buy viagra in canada First off, buy viagra in canada they just don’t have the offense to play from behind. Buy viagra in canada Secondly, buy viagra in canada there has only been one lead change in this series – Game 1 when Scott Gomez and Nik Antropov scored nine minutes apart to erase a Capitals 1-0 lead.

Buy viagra in canada There is a litany of things the Rangers must do survive and advance into the next round; however, buy viagra in canada there is one thing that stands above and beyond all of the other things – Henrik Lundqvist must return to his status as The King.

Buy viagra in canada “Am I Concerned [about Lundqvist]? Absolutely, buy viagra in canada but we’re concerned about our entire team, buy viagra in canada” Jim Schoenfeld said to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Buy viagra in canada “I don’t think the concern about Hank will last, buy viagra in canada but the team has to play better in front of him and Hank has to be better.”

Buy viagra in canada What started off as the Rangers best chance at stealing this series has turned into the biggest reason why the Capitals are on the verge of rallying to win? Since coach Bruce Boudreau switched from Jose Theodore to Simeon Varlamov, buy viagra in canada the Capitals have outscored the Rangers 14-6, buy viagra in canada with two of the goals coming once Game 6 had already been decided.

Buy viagra in canada One reason for that difference is the Rangers inability to score goals – thanks to Varlamov’s play and the Rangers inability to finish. Buy viagra in canada Another reason is Lundqvist return to the land of mortals.

Buy viagra in canada “He can’t play every game like a god, buy viagra in canada” Alexander Ovechkin explained to El-Bashir. Buy viagra in canada “He can’t save the game all the time.”

Buy viagra in canada While the unthinkable has occurred – Lundqvist being pulled from back-to-back playoff games – it is not all that long ago that The King was in the heads of the Capitals.

Buy viagra in canada “Obviously when things weren’t going well for us, buy viagra in canada maybe he was in our head a little bit, buy viagra in canada” Capitals defenseman Mike Green admitted to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. Buy viagra in canada “But as long as you stayed strong, buy viagra in canada there was gonna be a time where they were gonna start going in.”

Buy viagra in canada In listing the things the Rangers need to do to win Game 7, buy viagra in canada the one thing as the top of the list would be Lundqvist to pitch a shutout. Buy viagra in canada Frankly, buy viagra in canada even if he did, buy viagra in canada all that does is get the Rangers into overtime with no hope of a shootout to win. Buy viagra in canada In the end, buy viagra in canada the Rangers are going to have to find ways to score goals.

Buy viagra in canada As good as Varlamov has been in the series – and he has been good – he has not had to face the same pressure Lundqvist has had to face while the game is on the line. Buy viagra in canada The Blueshirts must find a way to put more sustained pressure on Varlamov early in the game when it matters. Buy viagra in canada This is will require the Rangers stop settling for shots at the perimeter and drive to the net. Buy viagra in canada The Rangers forwards have a bad habit of not driving to the net. Buy viagra in canada They tend to be content with pulling up (or going wide) and looking to make a pass rather than shoot.

Buy viagra in canada An example of this was right before the Capitals went ahead for good on Sunday afternoon. Buy viagra in canada Brandon Dubinsky led the rush on a two-on-one shorthanded break. Buy viagra in canada Rather than look to drive to the net to force the play, buy viagra in canada he faded to the boards.

Buy viagra in canada Speaking of being shorthanded, buy viagra in canada the Rangers must play discipline given the expected loss of Blair Betts. Buy viagra in canada The Capitals power play was 4-29 after five games, buy viagra in canada but was 2-2 in Game 6 with Betts out of the lineup.

Buy viagra in canada Conversely, buy viagra in canada the Rangers power play must score, buy viagra in canada and when it doesn’t score it must be active and generate scoring chances instead of generating momentum changing swings against.

Buy viagra in canada The Rangers tying goal on the power play has to be the blueprint for their man advantage in Game 7. Buy viagra in canada The Rangers were able to get traffic in front of Varlamov as Gomez tipped in Wade Redden’s shot from the left point. Buy viagra in canada The Rangers also had traffic in front of the net when Ryan Callahan beat Varlamov with a five-on-three goal.

Buy viagra in canada As the Rangers search for offense, buy viagra in canada they need to realize that the easiest way to accomplish this is by increasing their forecheck and looking to take advantage of Capitals turnovers. Buy viagra in canada An active forecheck, buy viagra in canada combined with cycling the puck down low, buy viagra in canada and winning the battles along the board, buy viagra in canada the Rangers will be able to get that sustained pressure they need against Varlamov.

Buy viagra in canada Part of Lundqvist playing well requires the Rangers to be smarter in their own end. Buy viagra in canada They need to make sure they make the safe plays when clearing the zone. Buy viagra in canada They cannot afford the mistakes Derek Morris and Nikolai Zherdev made on the Capitals opening goal in Game 6. Buy viagra in canada When in doubt, buy viagra in canada they must get the puck off the glass and out of the zone.

Buy viagra in canada The Rangers have to be very wary of getting caught looking to make defensive plays by simply poke checking the puck. Buy viagra in canada That is a deadly strategy when facing the likes of Ovechkin and Alexander Semin. Buy viagra in canada The Rangers need to step up and take the body and not get caught watching the puck.

Buy viagra in canada While they are at it, buy viagra in canada the Blueshirts also need to be smarter with the choices they make during the game. Buy viagra in canada Marc Staal, buy viagra in canada who had his worst playoff game of his career, buy viagra in canada would have been better off yielding the offensive blue line rather than pinching as Poti’s penalty expired. Buy viagra in canada Once Staal was caught, buy viagra in canada it was a three-on-one for Washington.

Buy viagra in canada The Rangers also have to hope that John Tortorella learned from his one game suspension. Buy viagra in canada No, buy viagra in canada I am not referring to him having an epiphany and becoming a kinder and gentler Tortorella. Buy viagra in canada Instead, buy viagra in canada he needed to use his time at the top of Madison Square garden to learn something against the Caps. Buy viagra in canada Or did he learn something he didn’t want to know about his team?

Order viagra prescription Where do we begin? I guess I could start the explanation with the “ifs and buts” of Game 6 – the points Sunday where the game could changed if a play went the Rangers way but didn’t.

Order viagra prescription The first one occurred when Donald Brashear ended Blair Betts afternoon with a shot to the head – the kind of play the NHL has supposedly staked out a “zero tolerance” stance. Order viagra prescription Instead of the Rangers getting a five-minute major (much like the ones called against Colton Orr this year), order viagra prescription the Blueshirts and Capitals ended up skating four-one-four after Paul Mara and Brashear draw matching minors.

Order viagra prescription Betts’s loss is felt as Washington goes ahead for good as Mike Green’s scores his first goal of the playoffs on a shot similar to the one Henrik Lundqvist yielded to Milan Jurcina to open the scoring. Order viagra prescription The Capitals ended up with a pair of goals in seven minutes, order viagra prescription pretty much putting an end to Game 6.

Order viagra prescription The second one occurred nine minutes into the second period when Nikolai Zherdev had Simeon Varlamov down and out of position, order viagra prescription but went wide on his backhand attempt. Order viagra prescription For the second time at Madison Square Garden, order viagra prescription the Capitals capitalized on a Ranger miss at one end to score at the other end. Order viagra prescription Instead of the game being 3-2, order viagra prescription Viktor Kozlov’s goal made it 4-1 and did put an end to Game 6.

Order viagra prescription Of course, order viagra prescription if I started my explanation with Game 6 with those two parts of the game, order viagra prescription I would be overlooking the bigger picture. Order viagra prescription The New York Rangers are now a team that is hopelessly lost. Order viagra prescription They are a team that has completely reverted to their old ways of not being able to recover from an adversity. Order viagra prescription Washington is playing like a team that knows it has its opponent on the ropes. Order viagra prescription Right now the Capitals like look a bunch of great white sharks circling a wounded seal.

Order viagra prescription Despite whatever the players said following the game, order viagra prescription their expressions during the game spoke louder than their words. Order viagra prescription During a break in the second period to fix the glass, order viagra prescription the NBC cameras panned the Blueshirts bench and they did literally look like “dead team skating”. Order viagra prescription

Order viagra prescription Frankly, order viagra prescription the Brashear hit on Betts shows (literally and figuratively) can do whatever they want to the Rangers without worrying about retribution. Order viagra prescription The bottom line is that the Capitals are toying with the Rangers.

Order viagra prescription The Brashear hit should, order viagra prescription once and for all, order viagra prescription show why Colton Orr has to be in the Rangers lineup – especially when the likes of the Brashears of the world are also in the lineup. Order viagra prescription While Orr may or may not have dissuaded Brashear, order viagra prescription you can bet your last dollar that he would not have gotten away with it if Orr was in the lineup. Order viagra prescription Perhaps some old time hockey retribution might have prevented the Rangers collapse following the loss of Betts.

Order viagra prescription Interim coach for the day Jim Schoenfeld called out some players on his team for not being ready to give it their all to end the series at the Garden.

Order viagra prescription “We had some guys who were locked in and ready to go, order viagra prescription and we had some other guys who wanted to test the water, order viagra prescription” he said to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News.

Order viagra prescription John Tortorella spoke earlier in the series about the need for the Rangers big players to step up. Order viagra prescription While Rangers nation is waiting for that to happen, order viagra prescription they are not getting a lot of contributions from their support players on offense – something the Capitals are getting in spades.

Order viagra prescription “You have to get scoring from everyone in the playoffs, order viagra prescription” Tom Poti told Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post. Order viagra prescription “You can’t have your big guys scoring night in and night out. Order viagra prescription You have to have your grinder and your role players score some goals, order viagra prescription too.”

Order viagra prescription The problem with the Rangers is they are pretty much a team made up of grinders and don’t have any big scoring guys to rely upon. Order viagra prescription Even with Alexander Ovechkin and Mike Green starting score, order viagra prescription in the last two games the Rangers have been beaten by the likes of Matt Bradley, order viagra prescription Jurcina and Poti (a goal and three assists).

Order viagra prescription The Rangers are at a point where every mistake (physical or mental) is being taken advantage of by the Capitals. Order viagra prescription Zherdev follows up a Derek Morris turnover with a turnover of his own that leads to Jurcina’s goal.

Order viagra prescription Washington makes it 3-1 directly following a Rangers power play as Marc Staal gets caught pinching at the end of the man advantage and forgets about Poti coming out of the penalty box.

Order viagra prescription It is no coincidence that the beating the Rangers psyche has taken has coincided with Henrik Lundqvist’s inability to be The King. Order viagra prescription While Game 5 could be explained away by his teammates poor play, order viagra prescription Game 6 is squarely on Lundqvist’s shoulders.

Order viagra prescription If you listen to the NBC announcers, order viagra prescription the Capitals have discovered a flaw in Henrik’s game and are shooting high to the glove side. Order viagra prescription Quick memo to NBC, order viagra prescription you can pretty much beat any goaltender high to the glove side if you places your shots properly. Order viagra prescription Take it from me I know because I have given up my share of those goals. Order viagra prescription Lundqvist has a propensity to give up these goals because he is a butterfly goaltender and you beat butterfly goaltenders with high shots.

Order viagra prescription Ryan Callahan beat Varlamov high to the glove side for the Rangers second goal of the afternoon. Order viagra prescription Does that mean the Rangers have found the rookie goalie’s flaw or was it just a good shot that beat a good goaltender?

Order viagra prescription The problem with Lundqvist is his facing the same dilemma that all goaltenders go through. Order viagra prescription When goalies are off their game, order viagra prescription they tend to fight the puck because they are trying to do too much in order to right themselves. Order viagra prescription In Lundqvist’s sake, order viagra prescription he is reverting to the butterfly too fast in an attempt to make saves. Order viagra prescription As a result, order viagra prescription he starts battling the puck and looking “to find the puck” rather than being in position and letting the puck find him.

Order viagra prescription “It is not a fun feeling to sit there [on the bench] knowing that, order viagra prescription obviously, order viagra prescription you want to be on the ice, order viagra prescription” Lundqvist explained to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. Order viagra prescription “It is hockey. Order viagra prescription It happens. Order viagra prescription You just have to deal with it. Order viagra prescription I have to look over the game and see what I can do better.”

Order viagra 1 “It’s not the work that’s hard, order viagra 1 it’s the discipline.”

Order viagra 1 That Anonymous quote pretty much sums up the state of the New York Rangers as they look ahead to returning to Madison Square Garden for Game 6. Order viagra 1 If they win, order viagra 1 then the Capitals series becomes a building block and a stepping stone for the next round. Order viagra 1

Order viagra 1 If they lose, order viagra 1 it is on to Game 7 in Washington and a chance to be part of hockey history – and not in a good way.

Order viagra 1 The Rangers inability to play disciplined hockey has pretty much be a problem all season long. Order viagra 1 That is why it is almost amazing that the Rangers have the NHL’s top penalty killing unit.

Order viagra 1 Killing penalties is all about discipline and sacrifice. Order viagra 1 You have to be willing to sacrifice your body up to block shots while still be disciplined enough to play within the penalty kill system.

Order viagra 1 The problem is the Rangers have not been able to carry their penalty killing discipline into their power play unit. Order viagra 1 They get no traffic in front of the net, order viagra 1 there is no player and puck movement in the offensive zone on the man advantage and they do not get enough shots on goal. Order viagra 1 Then again, order viagra 1 the same can be said for the Blueshirts when they are at even strength.

Order viagra 1 “ If we don’t discipline ourselves, order viagra 1 the world will do it for us” – William Feather.

Order viagra 1 If we apply Feather’s quote to the Rangers-Capitals series, order viagra 1 if the Rangers do not stop taking undisciplined penalties, order viagra 1 Washington will eventually do it for them by making the Blueshirts pay with power play goals against.

Order viagra 1 Coach John Tortorella tried to instill some accountability for his player’s action by benching Sean Avery in Game 5. Order viagra 1 Give Avery credit because he seems to have been saying all the right things.

Order viagra 1 “I totally stand behind what Torts did, order viagra 1” Avery explained to Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Order viagra 1 “The team comes first.”

Order viagra 1 “I made a mistake. Order viagra 1 I took two bad penalties. Order viagra 1 I put the game in jeopardy. Order viagra 1 It wasn’t something I did intentionally, order viagra 1 but that’s no excuse. Order viagra 1 I did it.”

Order viagra 1 Rangers fans might be wondering why the same treatment wasn’t doled out to Markus Naslund who took three penalties in Game 1 – and they would be correct in questioning the coach’s motivation. Order viagra 1 Both players took a pair of third period penalties, order viagra 1 with the only difference being Naslund’s second period power play goal.

Order viagra 1 Of course, order viagra 1 there are mitigating circumstances that favor Tortorella’s actions towards Avery. Order viagra 1 The feisty winger has racked up seven minor penalties and a 10-minute misconduct in just four game and the Blueshirts (and Avery) were fortunate his two third penalties were not double-minors or worse.

Order viagra 1 While the message behind Avery’s benching seemed get through, order viagra 1 it did not resonate enough for the team to change its actions – despite Scott Gomez’s comments.

Order viagra 1 “At this point we all know what Torts is going to do, order viagra 1” Gomez said to Jeff Z. Order viagra 1 Klein of the NY Times. Order viagra 1 “It just shows you it doesn’t matter who you are, order viagra 1 if you’re not on the same page he’s going to sit you. Order viagra 1 We’re all in this together.”

Order viagra 1 The one question to ask is how are the Rangers supposed to toe the discipline line when their own coach can’t? It doesn’t matter what the fans did to Tortorella or the Rangers bench, order viagra 1 the coach’s actions were completely uncalled for. Order viagra 1 If the Rangers bench were “under siege”, order viagra 1 then they should have called over Verizon Center security. Order viagra 1 If the situation were that bad, order viagra 1 he should have taken his team off the bench until order was restored.

Order viagra 1 “Talent without discipline is like an octopus on [ice] skates. Order viagra 1 There’s plenty of movement, order viagra 1 but you never know if it’s going to be forward, order viagra 1 backwards, order viagra 1 or sideways.” — Author H. Order viagra 1 Jackson Brown, order viagra 1 Jr.

Order viagra 1 By about 5pm on Sunday we will know which way that octopus was going. Order viagra 1 For the Rangers sake, order viagra 1 it better not be towards Washington, order viagra 1 D.C.

What is better viagra or levitra If you were ever going to draw up a game plan to defeat the New York Rangers, what is better viagra or levitra all you have to do is study what happened in Game 5 last night in Washington because the Blueshirts followed that game plan right down to the final word – which just happens to undisciplined.

What is better viagra or levitra Coach John Tortorella tried to send his team a message about accountability and discipline by benching Sean Avery after the Rangers agitator took two bad penalties in the final 10 minutes of Game 4. What is better viagra or levitra Of course, what is better viagra or levitra that plan backfired as the Rangers continued their undisciplined ways – right down to their coach who blew a fuse in the third period.

What is better viagra or levitra Whether he was goaded or not, what is better viagra or levitra Tortorella was 100% wrong for throwing a water bottle into the stands in the third period and then following that up by grabbing a stick and pointing it at the fans behind the Rangers bench. What is better viagra or levitra Expect Colin Campbell to do to Tortorella what Torts did to Avery.

What is better viagra or levitra With that out of the way, what is better viagra or levitra let’s take a look at that three-pronged game plan.

What is better viagra or levitra Step 1 – Take an undisciplined penalty in the opening minutes to derail any chance of a quick start. What is better viagra or levitra Check – Scott Gomez takes a retaliatory penalty at 1:16 of the first period.

What is better viagra or levitra Step 2 – Let the Rangers inefficient power play continue to struggle. What is better viagra or levitra Check (in a big way) – Not only does the power play not produce a goal in four chances on the night, what is better viagra or levitra it gives up a shorthanded goal five minutes into the start of the game.

What is better viagra or levitra Step 3 – Henrik Lundqvist turns back into a mere mortal. What is better viagra or levitra Check – Matt Bradley’s second goal of the game from below the right circle pretty much ended the game by the time it was 12 minutes old. What is better viagra or levitra A team that has only scored three goals in the last four games is not going to erase a 2-0 deficit, what is better viagra or levitra especially when the power play is zero for its last 18.

What is better viagra or levitra Friday night’s game is as bad as it gets. What is better viagra or levitra Contrary to Joe Micheletti who kept repeating that it did not feel like a 2-0 game, what is better viagra or levitra Washington was not the team waiting to be had – it was the Rangers who were waiting to be had. What is better viagra or levitra Even if Micheletti were correct, what is better viagra or levitra the Rangers were in no position to take advantage of everyone. What is better viagra or levitra

What is better viagra or levitra “Something has to give with our top guys. What is better viagra or levitra I’m not trying to insult them. What is better viagra or levitra We have some great guys in that room, what is better viagra or levitra” Tortorella related to Howard Fendrich of the AP. What is better viagra or levitra “This is a game where your best players have to be your best players, what is better viagra or levitra and it won’t happen until our best players are our best players – not kids.”

What is better viagra or levitra The Rangers made the fatal mistake of giving a desperate team a chance to get back into the series. What is better viagra or levitra The best time to eliminate a team from the playoffs is in your first chance. What is better viagra or levitra The longer this series goes, what is better viagra or levitra the harder it is going to be for the Blueshirts to close it out – despite the post-game words of Bruce Boudreau.

What is better viagra or levitra “They only have to win one. What is better viagra or levitra We have to win two. What is better viagra or levitra The pressure’s all on us, what is better viagra or levitra” the Capitals described to Fendrich. What is better viagra or levitra “You look at the odds, what is better viagra or levitra the odds definitely don’t favor us.”

What is better viagra or levitra The worst part is the idea the Rangers knew they had to step up their play and they failed miserably. What is better viagra or levitra They did not heed the advice their captain offered up after winning Game 4.

What is better viagra or levitra “I think we should go in there thinking we’re down 3-1, what is better viagra or levitra” Drury told Larry Brooks of the NY Post. What is better viagra or levitra “We have to be as desperate as we can to match their intensity.”

What is better viagra or levitra “We have to match them.”

What is better viagra or levitra As the game unfolded, what is better viagra or levitra it was evident that Drury’s admonition would go unheeded.

What is better viagra or levitra “We weren’t as ready as we needed to be, what is better viagra or levitra” Marc Staal said to Steve Zipay of Newsday. What is better viagra or levitra “We’ve got to score at least two goals to win against these guys . What is better viagra or levitra . What is better viagra or levitra . What is better viagra or levitra but we couldn’t find a way to do that.”

What is better viagra or levitra The question to ask is why weren’t the Rangers ready? Was it the coaching staff? Was it the players? Was it a combination of both?

What is better viagra or levitra In the end, what is better viagra or levitra verything that could go wrong did go wrong last night for the Rangers. What is better viagra or levitra If there was a bad play to make, what is better viagra or levitra they made it. What is better viagra or levitra On the first goal Derek Morris falls down at the point and Drury tries to step up on Bradley at center ice, what is better viagra or levitra rather than play the angle. What is better viagra or levitra

What is better viagra or levitra Lundqvist makes his first mistake of the series and the Rangers were down 2-0. What is better viagra or levitra

What is better viagra or levitra However, what is better viagra or levitra Alexander Ovechkin’s highlight reel goal in the second period boiled down the Rangers night. What is better viagra or levitra The Blueshirts were too busy trying to poke check the puck rather than step up and play the man – which was indicative of the Rangers lack of physical play while the game mattered. What is better viagra or levitra

What is better viagra or levitra Let’s face it; the only thing the Rangers did right all night long was go to the right locker room at the end of each period. What is better viagra or levitra Their effort, what is better viagra or levitra or lack thereof, what is better viagra or levitra was totally not acceptable.

What is better viagra or levitra Simply put, what is better viagra or levitra the Rangers cannot afford to play from behind in this series. What is better viagra or levitra Each player needs to take a long look in the mirror and find that something extra they had in the first period of Game 4. What is better viagra or levitra Once they find that something, what is better viagra or levitra they need to go and produce a 60 minute effort – something they have not done in the playoffs as of yet.

What is better viagra or levitra In a previous article I mentioned that momentum is like a pendulum and the key to winning is limiting the pendulum swings. What is better viagra or levitra Unfortunately for the Rangers, what is better viagra or levitra that pendulum is swinging too high.

Viagra pfizer online I know winning playoff games does not come easy, viagra pfizer online but these one-goal victories are taking its toll. Viagra pfizer online Is it too much to ask for the Rangers to win a laugher?

Viagra pfizer online While the schedule might say Friday night’s game is only Game 5, viagra pfizer online you can expect both teams to treat it as Game 7 – and it won’t be the first time the two teams have done that in this series.

Viagra pfizer online Paul Mara realizes the Rangers still have more work to do before they accomplish their goal.

Viagra pfizer online “We’re in a great position here but Washington has played extremely well in all four games and we can’t let our foot off the gas pedal, viagra pfizer online” he told Andrew Gross of The (Bergen) Record.

Viagra pfizer online Down two games and entering into the unfriendly confines of Madison Square Garden, viagra pfizer online the Capitals knew they had to play with more urgency and treat the game as a seventh and deciding game. Viagra pfizer online They did and the won Game 3.

Viagra pfizer online With the possibility of losing two games at home and returning to the Verizon Center back on their heels, viagra pfizer online the Rangers opened up Game 4 playing with a purpose to their game as they took the body early and established their home ice advantage. Viagra pfizer online As a result, viagra pfizer online the Rangers took Game 4.

Viagra pfizer online As the Rangers look to finish off the series and get some rest before doing battle with the Boston Bruins, viagra pfizer online they have a couple of things they need to address prior to Friday night.

Viagra pfizer online First and foremost, viagra pfizer online they must try to stay out of the penalty box. Viagra pfizer online The number of undisciplined penalties is reaching an alarming rate. Viagra pfizer online It is no coincidence that the Rangers have won the three games where they have matched the Capitals power play. Viagra pfizer online Given the ineffectiveness of the Blueshirts with the man advantage, viagra pfizer online the easiest way to maintain that ratio is to stay out of the penalty box.

Viagra pfizer online If they are able to stay away from the penalty box parade, viagra pfizer online they have a much better chance of completing their next task. Viagra pfizer online The Rangers must play from in front in Game 5. Viagra pfizer online As seen in Game 3, viagra pfizer online they do not have the fire power to play from behind. Viagra pfizer online Another quick start forces the Caps to play catch up and it helps take the Verizon Center crowd out of the game. Viagra pfizer online Part of getting and staying ahead of Washington relies on the Rangers matching the Capitals intensity level.

Viagra pfizer online The Blueshirts cannot afford to have any more periods like they did in the second period on Wednesday night. Viagra pfizer online As good as Henrik Lundqvist is, viagra pfizer online no goaltender and no team is going to able to continually survive a period where they are outshot 19-5 (and 30-10 during the second and third periods).

Viagra pfizer online The Rangers have to be careful of getting caught backing into their zone too much. Viagra pfizer online They were guilty of that in the third period and it helped set up Alexander Ovechkin’s first goal of the series. Viagra pfizer online When you think about it, viagra pfizer online Ovechkin scoring might have been the best thing that could have happened for the Rangers. Viagra pfizer online You knew he was eventually going to put a bulge in the old onion bag so it was best it finally happened and the Rangers won.

Viagra pfizer online John Tortorella has to stress the need for the Rangers to produce an effective forecheck – which was a key to their fast start in Game 4. Viagra pfizer online The Rangers came out hitting and it helped keep the territorial battle in their favor. Viagra pfizer online When they stopped forechecking and playing a physical game, viagra pfizer online they got pinned into their own end. Viagra pfizer online

Viagra pfizer online The Rangers to seem to get into troubles with the penalties as a result of committing turnovers at the Washington blue line. Viagra pfizer online The Rangers have to make a concerted effort to get the puck deep – which serves a dual purpose. Viagra pfizer online It enables them to set up their forecheck and eliminates the turnovers that lead to penalties or worse, viagra pfizer online odd-man rushes against.

Keyword order viagra Unfortunately, keyword order viagra any recap of Game 4 would not be complete without a discussion of the undisciplined penalties the Rangers continue to take. Keyword order viagra It helped to cost them a chance at winning the third game and it will cost them a chance to win Game 5 if they don’t heed their coach’s post-game warning.

Keyword order viagra “We are going to have to improve in a number of areas, keyword order viagra starting with our discipline, keyword order viagra” Tortorella told Andrew Gross of The (Bergen) Record.

Keyword order viagra While Mara did take a pair of bad penalties, keyword order viagra the Rangers coach was directing his ire at Sean Avery who took two incredibly bad and inopportune penalties in the final 10 minutes of the game. Keyword order viagra

Keyword order viagra Avery is like the little girl with the curl. Keyword order viagra When he is good, keyword order viagra he is good. Keyword order viagra When he is bad, keyword order viagra he is bad.

Keyword order viagra As you might imagine, keyword order viagra Avery was part of the post-game discussion.

Keyword order viagra “I don’t know if you have to hurt a guy, keyword order viagra or what the criteria for a high stick is for the league to review it, keyword order viagra” Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau related to Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post. Keyword order viagra “They’ll look at it. Keyword order viagra And if they deem it’s [worthy] of a suspension, keyword order viagra they’ll give him one game. Keyword order viagra He plays hard. Keyword order viagra Sometimes he plays too hard.”

Keyword order viagra Boudreau pretty much summed up Avery’s career in that final sentence.

Keyword order viagra Tortorella was asked for his reaction to the Avery penalties, keyword order viagra but the Rangers coach quickly cut of any discussion of the matter by saying it was something that would be handled in the locker room. Keyword order viagra One has to wonder if Tortorella even has to saying anything behind closed doors. Keyword order viagra I have a feeling that the Ranger veterans will be addressing the matter. Keyword order viagra

Keyword order viagra If you reviewed each of the penalties on their own merits, keyword order viagra they are not grounds for a suspension. Keyword order viagra However, keyword order viagra when you add the two of them together and then add in his minor and 10-minute misconduct at the end of Game, keyword order viagra and then factor in it is Sean Avery, keyword order viagra you can expect NHL Vice President Colin Campbell to sit him down for a game.

Keyword order viagra Fans can try and rationalize that Avery’s hot on Milan Jurcina was an accident, keyword order viagra but the bottom line is Avery has to realize the position he is in. Keyword order viagra Like it or not, keyword order viagra Avery and the Rangers have to realize that there is a target on his back and he will not be allowed to get away with things that other players do while other players will be able to take liberties against Avery without penalties being called.

Keyword order viagra “I think that was intentional, keyword order viagra” Brian Pothier told Dan Rosen of nhl.com. Keyword order viagra “That’s Sean Avery and we know what to expect out of him.”

Keyword order viagra “I hope not, keyword order viagra for his sake, keyword order viagra” Pothier said in response to whether or not Avery’s high-stick on the Caps blue liner was intentional. Keyword order viagra “With four minutes left I think I give him a little more credit than that.”

Keyword order viagra It is very possible that the Rangers are not in the position they are in if Avery did not return to the team. Keyword order viagra However, keyword order viagra he is back to skating that fine line of being a detriment to the team or a catalyst to victory.

Keyword order viagra “In the grand scheme of things, keyword order viagra the Rangers seem to be a better team with Avery in their midst, keyword order viagra ” Darren Eliot wrote on SI.com following Game 3. Keyword order viagra “His energy can be contagious and his antics distracting to the opposition. Keyword order viagra But in the short-term, keyword order viagra sometimes his hockey energy is pure fourth-line talent and his antics a detriment to his team’s cause.”

Keyword order viagra If you think about it, keyword order viagra you can add Eliot’s comment to pretty much any Rangers pre-game and post-game analysis.

Viagra fast delivery There is an old adage in baseball that momentum is only as good as your next day’s pitcher. Viagra fast delivery In hockey, viagra fast delivery you could adjust that adage to say momentum is only as good as your goaltender’s next performance. Viagra fast delivery If that is the case, viagra fast delivery momentum is clearly sitting on the Rangers bench. Viagra fast delivery To be precise, viagra fast delivery he is wearing Rangers jersey Number 30.

Viagra fast delivery As he did in the first two games, viagra fast delivery Henrik Lundqvist was the Rangers best player and was probably deserving of the first three stars of the game, viagra fast delivery never mind just the first star.

Viagra fast delivery “He’s amazing, viagra fast delivery he’s our heartbeat and he gives everyone confidence that is playing in front of him, viagra fast delivery” defenseman Paul Mara raved to IRA Podell of the AP. Viagra fast delivery “He’s awesome. Viagra fast delivery We love him. Viagra fast delivery He’s the king.”

Viagra fast delivery While Mara gushed, viagra fast delivery Brandon Dubinsky succinctly summed up the team’s feeling about The King while taking to Podell.

Viagra fast delivery “He’s like Tina Turner. Viagra fast delivery He’s ‘Simply the Best'”.

Viagra fast delivery One has to wonder of Lundqvist has gotten back into Washington’s heads again.

Viagra fast delivery “It seems like we are throwing everything at him and he’s making great saves, viagra fast delivery” Mike Green said to Podell. Viagra fast delivery “They’re playing well, viagra fast delivery but the good thing is it is not over.”

Viagra fast delivery The player’s frustration at their inability to beat Lundqvist extends to their coach as well.

Viagra fast delivery “Somebody is going to have to score on this guy, viagra fast delivery” Bruce Boudreau lamented to Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post. Viagra fast delivery “You can nitpick all you want, viagra fast delivery but we took 39 shots. Viagra fast delivery When you outshoot a team 19-5 in their building and you’re down 1-0, viagra fast delivery the other goalie is doing something right.”

Viagra fast delivery It is a cliché to say it, viagra fast delivery but Lundqvist is “in the zone”. Viagra fast delivery As someone who played goal in a weekly pickup game many years ago, viagra fast delivery I know exactly what Lundqvist is saying in the following exchange with Dan Rosen on nhl.com.

Viagra fast delivery “When you’re confident you are not fighting (the puck), viagra fast delivery” Lundqvist explained. Viagra fast delivery “You’re a little more relaxed and you let the puck come to you. Viagra fast delivery A couple of time in the second [period] I just waited and at the last split second and saw it and could react to it. Viagra fast delivery Sometimes you fight it and you open up and that creates holes. Viagra fast delivery When you’re confident you are more patient and you let the puck come to you and then you can react. Viagra fast delivery That’s big.”

Viagra fast delivery The Capitals should know a thing or two about rallying back from a 3-1 deficit in a series. Viagra fast delivery Washington fought back from such a situation last season in the opening round of the playoffs as they forced a Game 7 at home, viagra fast delivery which they lost to the Philadelphia Flyers on a Joffrey Lupul overtime power play goal.

Viagra fast delivery “It’s not done yet. Viagra fast delivery We were in this situation last year and we came back, viagra fast delivery” Alexander Ovechkin explained to Corey Masisak of the Washington Times. Viagra fast delivery We have that experience, viagra fast delivery and it was a good experience. Viagra fast delivery We know how to come back. Viagra fast delivery We’ll go back to our home and our fans and go back and win that game.”

Viagra fast delivery While Washington did manage to force a Game 7, viagra fast delivery NHL history is not on their side. Viagra fast delivery Only 20 of 229 teams have erased a 3-1 deficit to win the series. Viagra fast delivery The Capitals franchise does have the distinction of being one of those 20 teams, viagra fast delivery turning the trick in the 1988 Patrick Division Semifinals when they rallied to eliminate the Flyers.

Viagra fast delivery If trying to accomplish something that has only happened 8.7% of the time isn’t hard enough, viagra fast delivery Washington is facing some other steep mountains to climb. Viagra fast delivery The Capitals have not advanced out of the first round of the playoffs since they reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 1998. Viagra fast delivery During the stretch, viagra fast delivery they missed the playoffs five times and lost in the first round the other four seasons.

Viagra fast delivery In addition, viagra fast delivery the Rangers are 12-0 when they have been up 3-1 in a best-of-seven series. Viagra fast delivery In fact, viagra fast delivery this year’s matchup is following the same path the Rangers took in defeating the New Jersey Devils last year. Viagra fast delivery They won the first two on the road, viagra fast delivery lost Game 3 at home before taking the fourth game and then closing out the series on the road in Game 5. Viagra fast delivery Ranger fans hoping their team completes the déjà vu all over again feeling on Friday night.

Viagra fast delivery As good as Lundqvist was, viagra fast delivery Dubinsky had as great a game a forward can have without scoring a goal. Viagra fast delivery He was superb on faceoffs, viagra fast delivery winning 15 of the 17 draws (88%) he took – including the faceoff that led to Mara’s goal in the first period. Viagra fast delivery He played nearly 20 minutes, viagra fast delivery drawing the most ice time among all Ranger forwards. Viagra fast delivery He was active physically in all three zones and was a big part of the Rangers six-for-six penalty killing effort.

Viagra fast delivery Yet despite his efforts, viagra fast delivery Dubinsky was not named one of the games three stars. Viagra fast delivery Ovechkin was the second star for his goal and 11 shots. Viagra fast delivery Captain Chris Drury, viagra fast delivery who scored his 17 career game-winning playoff goal was the third star.

Viagra fast delivery Drury’s effort despite the injury to his hand/wrist injury was not overly looked by his teammates and his coach.

Viagra fast delivery “Dru’s been awesome for us and he’s battling through some things (with which) a lot of players probably wouldn’t be on the ice, viagra fast delivery” Mara – the team’s Most Valuable Playoff Beard, viagra fast delivery said to Rick Carpiniello of the Journal News. Viagra fast delivery “But he’s our leader, viagra fast delivery we follow him, viagra fast delivery and he’s come up with clutch goals for many years now. Viagra fast delivery And he was huge for us tonight.”

Viagra fast delivery Rangers coach John Tortorella also explained how important Drury’s effort was for the team and for the captain himself.

Viagra fast delivery “He is an easy guy to pull for, viagra fast delivery” said Tortorella. Viagra fast delivery “He is an important guy in the locker room. Viagra fast delivery He is much healthier, viagra fast delivery improving the last couple of days. Viagra fast delivery I think he has things figured out. Viagra fast delivery Is he all there? No. Viagra fast delivery We have to make a decision here: Do we take him out or stick with him and give him ice time in certain situations and see what he can give us versus bringing another player in. Viagra fast delivery That was the call, viagra fast delivery” Tortorella explained to Pierre LeBrun of espn.com. Viagra fast delivery “I felt Chris was healthy enough to add, viagra fast delivery Chris felt healthy enough to add, viagra fast delivery not just to put the uniform on. Viagra fast delivery He was honest with me and I thought he did some good things for us. Viagra fast delivery Oddly, viagra fast delivery he scores the winning goal. Viagra fast delivery That will help him.

Viagra fast delivery “In playoff hockey, viagra fast delivery the locker room is a very important thing as far as camaraderie. Viagra fast delivery I think that was very important for our team for Chris to maybe do something like that for us to band together with him.”

Viagra fast delivery Momentum is a funny thing. Viagra fast delivery In most sports, viagra fast delivery momentum shifts from game to game. Viagra fast delivery In hockey, viagra fast delivery momentum changes from shift to shift. Viagra fast delivery The second period was a perfect example of how momentum can change at an instant. Viagra fast delivery

Viagra fast delivery Drury scores a goal along the goal line to make the score 2-0 in favor of the Rangers and the Garden is on fire. Viagra fast delivery The next shift Mara takes a bad penalty and the energy drains out of the building and the Capitals spend pretty much the entire period on the Rangers zone.

Viagra fast delivery Think of momentum as a giant pendulum. Viagra fast delivery The key to winning for the Rangers is to keep the pendulum’s swings as tight as possible. Viagra fast delivery The more exaggerated the swings, viagra fast delivery the worse it is for the Rangers – especially against such an offensive team like the Capitals.

Viagra samples As the New York Rangers start their preparations for Game on Wednesday night, viagra samples they need to put Monday night’s result out of their minds. Viagra samples However, viagra samples what they must remember is how they lost an opportunity to put a stranglehold on this series.

Viagra samples Prior to Game 3, viagra samples John Tortorella offered this warning in a discussion with Jay Greenberg of the NY Post.

Viagra samples “We have fought and handled surges pretty well and what they have brought [at] us offensively. Viagra samples Our puck possession needs to improve. Viagra samples We haven’t had the puck enough this series.”

Viagra samples That pretty much sums up went wrong for the Rangers in Game 3. Viagra samples

Viagra samples The Blueshirts did not handle surges well – in fact it was just the opposite. Viagra samples The Rangers reverted back to their mid-season form of not responding to adversity. Viagra samples It was the old quicksand formula where the more the Rangers tried to struggle, viagra samples the more they seemed to get nothing done.

Viagra samples The Rangers puck possession was nowhere near where it needs to be. Viagra samples Some of that has to do with the Capitals making a concerted effort to protect their rookie goaltender. Viagra samples Some of it has to do with the Rangers sitting back and reacting, viagra samples rather than acting. Viagra samples And some of it has to do with Washington having elite players like Alexander Ovechkin, viagra samples Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom who can take over game. Viagra samples The only Ranger who has the ability to take over a game is Henrik Lundqvist. Viagra samples Unfortunately, viagra samples we are in the midst of the playoffs and the Rangers can’t win games 1-0 via the shootout. Viagra samples In other words, viagra samples The King needs a little help from his friends.

Viagra samples The first thing his friends can do in Game 4 (and beyond) is stay out of the penalty box and avoid a battle of power plays. Viagra samples Not only does the Rangers power play grind games to a halt, viagra samples but constantly killing penalties also throws ice time out of whack.

Viagra samples This return of discipline must carry over to the Rangers defensive zone coverage. Viagra samples The Blueshirts have to concentrate on not getting caught running around in their own zone. Viagra samples Rather than drop down to clog the slot, viagra samples the forwards must remain with their checks at the point – thus eliminating Washington’s ability to relieve pressure with passes back to the points.

Viagra samples One of the considerations the Rangers might make is revisiting the positive things they did defensively. Viagra samples The Capitals have 110 shots on goal – an average of nearly 37 per game.

Viagra samples The Rangers need their few offensive threats to step up their play and increase the quality and quantity of their scoring chances. Viagra samples It is one thing to merely get shots on goal; it is another thing to do it with a purpose. Viagra samples The Rangers have to find a way to get some open ice like they did in Game 1. Viagra samples One of the ways to do that is to be more aggressive with their forecheck. Viagra samples

Viagra samples Nik Antropov needs to use his size the way he did as a member of the Maple Leafs when Toronto played against the Rangers. Viagra samples He is the only forward who has the size/ability to come close to matching the way Ovechkin can physically dominate offensively.

Viagra samples While Nikolai Zherdev has been cut some slack at the start of the series because it is his first appearance in the playoffs, viagra samples it is time for him to step up his play. Viagra samples He might be the only Ranger whose offensive abilities can come close to matching Ovechkin’s. Viagra samples Zherdev was active in his first couple of shifts Monday night, viagra samples but he missed the net on his first three good scoring chances.

Viagra samples “Our game-breakers have to be better, viagra samples” Tortorella explained to Greenberg. Viagra samples “IF you think you are boxing me in and want to pick on Nik, viagra samples this is his first playoff series and this is part of the process. Viagra samples We have to help him, viagra samples as coaches understand how hard you have to play. Viagra samples Our responsibility is to clue him in.”

Viagra samples While Tortorella was speaking exclusively about Zherdev, viagra samples he needs to broaden his “game-breakers have to be better” to his entire team.

Viagra samples Game 3 is proof that you can’t shut down the Washington Capitals. Viagra samples At best, viagra samples you can hope to contain them. Viagra samples However, viagra samples it is hard to do that when you can’t maintain any sustained offensive pressure of your own.

Viagra samples The Rangers have to dictate the pace and tempo of the game from the opening faceoff. Viagra samples The best way for them to do that is to play with some urgency – something that was lacking during Game 3. Viagra samples While Wednesday night’s game is not a “must-win” game, viagra samples they need their play to reflect that type of attitude.

Viagra samples A lot has been made over Sean Avery’s game last night. Viagra samples The Capitals did a good job of staying away from reacting to him. Viagra samples Even his attempt to get Simeon Varlamov off his game went awry. Viagra samples Of course, viagra samples it might have been more productive if Varlamov spoke English.

Viagra samples Avery must skate a fine line because it is obvious that the target on his back has grown since returning from his suspension. Viagra samples He must take heed that when he goes over the line and acts like an ass he is only making himself a bigger target.

Viagra samples Game 4 will show whether or not the Rangers loss on Monday night was an inevitable occurrence given their five game winning streak dating back to the final three games of the regular season (which were pretty much playoff games in their own right) or was the loss a glimpse into the future of this series.

Viagra samples One final note to the Madison Square Garden Network and Cablevision – lose those stupidly ridiculous ads on the Plexiglas. Viagra samples They go beyond annoying and distracting. Viagra samples Those ads, viagra samples along with distributing thundersticks, viagra samples reeks of amateur hour.
