Levitra vs. cialis Unless the 2012 New York Rangers channel their inner 1994 New York Rangers, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Blueshirts season will end on Friday night at the Prudential Center – on the 18th anniversary of Mark Messier’s Game 6 guarantee game.

Levitra vs. cialis As bad as the Rangers start was in Game 4, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis their Game 5 start was even worse spotting the New Jersey Devils a 3-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the first period – and less than six minutes after coach John Tortorella had to burn his timeout.

Levitra vs. cialis If this had been a regular season game, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers could speak of a “moral victory” in reference to how they battled back from their horrendous start to eventually take control of the game. Levitra vs. cialis However, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis that is not the case come playoff time. Levitra vs. cialis The only victories you can claim are the ones on the scoreboard.

Levitra vs. cialis Much has been made by the media and fans about the Rangers being tired – despite Tortorella’s assurances that they are not. Levitra vs. cialis Well, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis they may not be physically tired but being mentally tired would explain the Rangers inability to get off to even an average start in the last couple of first periods.

Levitra vs. cialis With the Rangers playing so many tight games during the playoffs, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis and having to grind out a pair of seven-game series to start the playoffs, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis I could see how the Rangers mindset might change. Levitra vs. cialis Instead of playing their game, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Blueshirts pay more attention to not making mistakes which, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis of course, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis leads to the Rangers making more mistakes.

Levitra vs. cialis The one thing you have to give their Devils credit for is their ability to make the Rangers pay for their mistakes – whether they are mental or physical.

Levitra vs. cialis Stephen Gionta’s goal just 2:43 into the game was a play that we have seen repeated over and over during the playoffs. Levitra vs. cialis The system that got the Rangers this far failed them as they got caught with all of their players down low – leaving the point wide open. Levitra vs. cialis To further compound the problem, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis no one picked up Gionta in front.

Levitra vs. cialis I know it has worked all season long, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis but Tortorella has to adjust it a bit so that two forwards play more towards the defensemen and the third forward can drop back in the slot area.

Levitra vs. cialis On the Devils second goal, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis they made the Rangers pay the price after Mar Stall lost his edge on a pinch deep in the New Jersey zone. Levitra vs. cialis As a result, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis it was forward Artem Anisimov battling Patrik Elias in front of the net. Levitra vs. cialis If Staal doesn’t fall and is back to check Elias, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis perhaps the puck doesn’t pinball past Henrik Lundqvist.

Levitra vs. cialis Even with that, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers had a golden chance to cut the lead in half, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis but Marian Gaborik missed a sure goal about two minutes later when he shot a puck over the net – keeping the Ranger sniper pointless in the series.

Levitra vs. cialis The third Devils goal is all on Lundqvist. Levitra vs. cialis There is no way to explain how Travis Zajac’s shot eluded Lundqvist – a shot I am sure he would love to have back.

Levitra vs. cialis “They were opportunistic — a few seeing-eye pucks, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis” Brian Boyle said to Dave Lozo of NHL.com. Levitra vs. cialis “Sometimes that happens, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis but we stuck with it, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis continued to battle and played a pretty good hockey game.”

Levitra vs. cialis A funny thing happened on the way to the Devils cakewalk, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers finally began to take advantage of some Devils mistakes.

Levitra vs. cialis The Blueshirts got on the board thanks to Bryce Salvador’s inability to get the puck deep and Brandon Prust’s good sense not to keep an eye on the puck. Levitra vs. cialis A poorly timed Devils line change later and Prust was able to beat Martin Brodeur on a mini-breakaway.

Levitra vs. cialis In the opening 32 seconds of the second period, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers realized that good things happen when you put the puck towards the net and crash the crease as Ryan Callahan cut the deficit to one as the Rangers finally ruled the day on a playoff review involving a “distinct kicking motion” (unlike Game 3 against Buffalo in 2007 when Karel Rachunek’s second period goal was wiped off).

Levitra vs. cialis Callahan came within inches of tying the game with the Rangers on the power play as his sharp-angle rebound shot ticked off Anton Volchenkov’s stick and off the post.

Levitra vs. cialis The Rangers struck even earlier at the start of the third period as Brodeur got caught unable to play the puck out of the trapezoid. Levitra vs. cialis Gaborik threw the puck towards the net and Marty did the rest as Brodeur stumbled his way to Gaborik’s first goal and point of the series.

Levitra vs. cialis With the crowd revved up and momentum fully shifted to the Rangers, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis but a funny thing happened on the way to the Rangers improbable comeback victory – they eased up on the pedal.

Levitra vs. cialis “I felt when we tied it, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis we stopped making plays, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis” Tortorella admitted after the game. Levitra vs. cialis “Whether they picked up – I think we helped them a little bit. Levitra vs. cialis Where I thought we did a really good job of making plays and controlling some of the play tonight, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis and then I just felt we started batting around a little bit and allowed them to gain some forechecking. Levitra vs. cialis I didn’t think we were in real trouble. Levitra vs. cialis But they score a goal. Levitra vs. cialis They make a big play.”

Levitra vs. cialis That big play was a result of a team breakdown defensively. Levitra vs. cialis It started with four of the five skaters focused solely on the puck and continued when Carl Hagelin was late to picking up his check on Ryan Carter and culminated with Lundqvist not making an attempt to pokecheck Gionta’s centering pass.

Levitra vs. cialis “I thought we had the puck and I didn’t see their guy come back door, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis” Lundqvist told Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Levitra vs. cialis “I needed to look around in case something happened, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis and I didn’t.”

Levitra vs. cialis There are two schools of thought. Levitra vs. cialis The first says you want to make sure you are beaten by your opponent’s best players. Levitra vs. cialis The second says that you should never let the other team’s best players beat you.

Levitra vs. cialis I am not sure what is worse; getting beaten because of the play Devils stars like Zach Parise, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis Ilya Kovalchuk and Elias or getting beaten by the play of Devils “foot soldiers’ like Carter and Gionta?

Levitra vs. cialis If the Rangers are going to take anything out of this game as they look forward to a true” must-win” Game 6 it is the idea that when they maintain puck possession and keep their level urgency high, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis they can match the Devils goal-for-goal. Levitra vs. cialis

Levitra vs. cialis They need to bring those two aspects of their game to the table right from the opening faceoff so that they can play with a lead. Levitra vs. cialis In the Blueshirts last 13 playoff games, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the team that has scored first has won all 13 games – so that makes getting off to a fast start on Friday night an imperative.

Levitra vs. cialis The Rangers are going to need their best players to step to the forefront. Levitra vs. cialis While it is great to get secondary goals, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis this is the time when your best players must lead the way. Levitra vs. cialis

Levitra vs. cialis Callahan did his best Mark Messier impersonation and needs to bring that same ferocity to Game 6. Levitra vs. cialis Gaborik showed some signs of life as well and his goal, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis as flukey as it was, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis could be the start of a streak for him. Levitra vs. cialis Derek Stepan needs to get on the scoresheet and find a way to earn his first points of the series.

Levitra vs. cialis Quite obviously, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers need Lundqvist to return to being The King. Levitra vs. cialis They can’t afford another game where Henrik is just a mere mortal.

Levitra vs. cialis Most of all, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis Brad Richards needs to be a force in this series. Levitra vs. cialis When your best chance to score is on your goaltender – as he Richards almost did eight and half minutes into the third period – then something is off.

Levitra vs. cialis If Game 5 showed us anything, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis it is that any shot on goal is dangerous when you get bodies to the front of the net. Levitra vs. cialis I still maintain the belief that Brodeur is beatable and susceptible to wraparounds and quick plays from behind the net to the slot.

Levitra vs. cialis Most of all, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis the Rangers must have a long-term memory to reflect back to what they did in the final two games of the Ottawa series and in Game 7 against Washington.

Levitra vs. cialis “Sure, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis you spend some time when you’re struggling in the game and learn from your mistakes. Levitra vs. cialis You can also spend some time with some of the good things you’ve done to get ready for our next game, levitra vs. Levitra vs. cialis cialis” Tortorella stated.

Levitra vs. cialis “We’ve been here before. Levitra vs. cialis We were here before earlier in the Playoffs. Levitra vs. cialis And so we’ll just take the next game. Levitra vs. cialis It’s all we’re looking for is our next game.”
