Adviser finance order viagra To paraphrase the great Mark Twain, adviser finance order viagra “The report of the New York Rangers’ death was an exaggeration.” Left for dead and nearly buried after scoring just one goal in their two losses at the Verizon Center, adviser finance order viagra the Rangers took advantage of some home cooking at Madison Square Garden and evened the series at two games apiece.

Adviser finance order viagra In doing so, adviser finance order viagra the Blueshirts showed the adage of momentum carrying over from game-to-game is a fickle notion at best. Adviser finance order viagra If that were the case, adviser finance order viagra the Washington would have capitalized (pun intended) on their Game 2 overtime victory. Adviser finance order viagra

Adviser finance order viagra For the most part, adviser finance order viagra momentum swings within a game – and in this series – have been keyed by the success/failure of the Rangers power play. Adviser finance order viagra In Game 1, adviser finance order viagra the Rangers inability to convert a two-man advantage shifted the momentum to the Capitals who would go on to win Game 1.

Adviser finance order viagra The Rangers must find a way to carry over their intensity, adviser finance order viagra desperation and forecheck from Game 4 into the start of Game 5. Adviser finance order viagra That is the only way that the momentum from the games at the MSG will carry over to Friday night.

Adviser finance order viagra Last night, adviser finance order viagra it was the Rangers ability to cash in on Jason Chimera’s gift power play that keyed the Blueshirts to their Game 4 victory. Adviser finance order viagra While Coach John Tortorella has gotten a lot of much-deserved heat for his inability to fix the Rangers power play, adviser finance order viagra his willingness to shake things up at the start of the third period was the difference.

Adviser finance order viagra Only Torts knows for sure whether his keeping his top guns (Ryan Callahan, adviser finance order viagra Rick Nash and Brad Richards) on the bench for the start of the power play was a case of holding his stars accountable for their poor power play work or if he was holding them for the second half of the power play – which would match them against the Capitals secondary penalty killers.

Adviser finance order viagra Even with the Rangers eventually regaining a second two-goal lead, adviser finance order viagra nothing ever comes easy for the Blueshirts. Adviser finance order viagra You just had a feeling that Washington was not going to stop throwing pucks on goal because they seem to have penchant for scoring some ugly goals with their third period goal being about as ugly as they get.

Adviser finance order viagra Despite the Rangers inability to protect two-goal leads (something they MUST correct as soon as possible) Washington never seemed to get into a rhythm like they did in the first two games. Adviser finance order viagra

Adviser finance order viagra Katie Carrera of the Washington Post summed it up best: “For the first time in this matchup, adviser finance order viagra and perhaps the past several months, adviser finance order viagra Washington was thoroughly outplayed at even strength — especially in the first half of the contest. Adviser finance order viagra Despite erasing a two-goal deficit at one point, adviser finance order viagra they were never able to establish control.”

Adviser finance order viagra Even though the Rangers “exploded” for four goals, adviser finance order viagra last night’s game was close to the success they had during the 2012 playoffs. Adviser finance order viagra Larry Brooks of the NY Post noted that the Rangers 33 blocks were more than any game against Washington in last year’s playoffs – with the exception of the triple overtime game where they had 41 blocked shots.

Adviser finance order viagra In addition to making the series a best-of-three, adviser finance order viagra Games 3 and 4 served as the coming out parties for Derick Brassard and Derek Stepan.

Adviser finance order viagra Brassard, adviser finance order viagra in his first NHL playoff action, adviser finance order viagra has shaken off his playoff nerves to the tune one goal and four assists in the last two games. Adviser finance order viagra Even more impressive is that he is winning 65.8% of his faceoffs including a ridiculous 88.9% in Game 4.

Adviser finance order viagra “He’s grabbed a hold of it here and makes just a great play on Danny’s goal, adviser finance order viagra” Tortorella said to Dan Rosen of NHL.com in reference to Brassard’s play. Adviser finance order viagra “He’s stepped in here to try and make a difference and he’s made some big plays for us. Adviser finance order viagra I’m not afraid to put him a lot of different positions in a lot of different situations.”

Adviser finance order viagra After scoring just one goal in his previous 22 playoff games, adviser finance order viagra Stepan has notched the game-winning goals in back-to-back games as the Blueshirts win two in a row in the playoffs since winning Games 6 and 7 last year against Ottawa.

Adviser finance order viagra Tortorella spoke of Stepan’s “resiliency”. Adviser finance order viagra It’s always been there, adviser finance order viagra” Tortorella said to Rosen. Adviser finance order viagra “That is what has fast-tracked him into a guy that plays 23 minutes a game in all situations. Adviser finance order viagra It’s because of the intangible that he has. Adviser finance order viagra He has given us some really big minutes here for us to crawl into the series with these two games.”

Adviser finance order viagra Interestingly enough, adviser finance order viagra this series has evolved into a battle of the secondary scorers. Adviser finance order viagra Of Washington’s top three scorers, adviser finance order viagra Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin each have a goal and an assist and Mike Ribeiro is pointless.

Adviser finance order viagra Conversely, adviser finance order viagra the Rangers big three (Callahan, adviser finance order viagra Nash and Richards) have combined for just one goal and three assists.

Adviser finance order viagra With the last change at home, adviser finance order viagra Tortorella has been able to get favorable matchups against Ovechkin. Adviser finance order viagra So much so that Washington’s captain had only three shots in the last two games.

Adviser finance order viagra With the series shifting to the Verizon Center, adviser finance order viagra the Rangers will have to shift their focus in terms of shutting down the Capitals high octane offense. Adviser finance order viagra The easiest way to do that is to force Washington to defend and for the Blueshirts to stay out of the penalty box. Adviser finance order viagra And, adviser finance order viagra above all, adviser finance order viagra they will have to keep the monster (Ovechkin) in his cage.

Adviser finance order viagra The Rangers will also need to have an effective power play in Game 5 because you can expect Washington to rededicate themselves to defensive hockey. Adviser finance order viagra An effective power play does not mean the Rangers have to score on every advantage. Adviser finance order viagra Rather, adviser finance order viagra it means being active in the Capitals zone and being aggressive and getting their shots on goal and traffic in front of Braden Holtby.

Adviser finance order viagra In Game 3 the Rangers power play was active and did not suck the air of the Garden and served as a means to change and hold momentum in a positive way. Adviser finance order viagra Last night, adviser finance order viagra outside of Dan Girardi’s power play goal, adviser finance order viagra the Rangers power play reverted back to its ugly ways as it had a negative impact on momentum.

Adviser finance order viagra Here are my random Ramblings from Game 4:

Adviser finance order viagra • Sky Kerstein of 106.6 WJFK-FIM tweeted that in the last 14 games (regular season and playoffs); the Capitals are 1-9 when Ovechkin doesn’t score and 5-0 when he does.
• Six times Washington has lost Game 4 to even a series at two games apiece – and they have lost all six series.
• Prior to last night’s loss, adviser finance order viagra Braden Holtby was 7-0 following a Capitals loss in the playoffs.
• Unlike some fans and beat writers, adviser finance order viagra I have no problem with defensemen dropping to the ice to block shots or break up odd-man rushes. Adviser finance order viagra With that said, adviser finance order viagra I am still trying to figure what Michael Del Zotto was doing on the Capitals first goal. Adviser finance order viagra Rather than go hit the ice with a purpose, adviser finance order viagra MDZ seemed to flop to the ice for the sake of flopping to the ice. Adviser finance order viagra Then again, adviser finance order viagra he might not have had to do that if Steve Eminger didn’t get caught making a hit in the neutral zone.
• It is a good thing that Eddie Shore is not Del Zotto’s coach. Adviser finance order viagra Shore hated when his goaltenders would go to the ice to make a save – so much so that he would tie them to the crossbar in practice in order to break them of that habit.
• Hmm, adviser finance order viagra might be a good thing that Shore isn’t Henrik Lundqvist’s coach as well. Adviser finance order viagra The King needs to resist dropping to the butterfly when there is a lot of traffic in front in attempt to look over the screens it might have made a difference on their third Caps goal.
• Stephen Whyno of The Washington Times wrote that Martin Erat’s “upper-body” injury is an injury to his wrist. Adviser finance order viagra Two former Rangers could be inserted into the lineup by Coach Adam Oates – Wojtek Wolski and Joey Crabb. Adviser finance order viagra With the Hershey Bears eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs, adviser finance order viagra the Caps recalled Crabb and former 1st round draft pick Tom Wilson.
• However, adviser finance order viagra could there be a dark horse replacement for Erat? Brooks Laich skated with the team on Wednesday. Adviser finance order viagra Laich, adviser finance order viagra who is recovering from a sports hernia surgery that no one has admitted to, adviser finance order viagra would be more likely to see action in a Game 7 than Game 5. Adviser finance order viagra Whyno tweeted this morning that “Brooks Laich clarifies that he had a small groin procedure, adviser finance order viagra not sports hernia.” Insert your own joke here .
• Someone needs to put a BOLO for Rick Nash. Adviser finance order viagra By the end of the game Nash had been dropped to the third line. Adviser finance order viagra One has to wonder if maybe he is playing hurt because it shouldn’t be a case of him being overwhelmed by the state of the playoffs. Adviser finance order viagra Nash is a veteran of many international tournaments as a member of Team Canada, adviser finance order viagra including the Olympics. Adviser finance order viagra Nash needs to put away the spinoramas and concentrate on going to the net with a purpose and shooting the puck a beat earlier than normal to try and catch Braden Holtby and the Caps off stride.
• Marc Staal was not on the ice for today’s optional practice, adviser finance order viagra although Andrew Gross reports that 12 regulars and Martin Biron did skate. Adviser finance order viagra Staal did not address the media and, adviser finance order viagra as expected, adviser finance order viagra Tortorella would not discuss Staal’s availability for the rest of the series.
• Gross did write that Torts addressed Ryan McDonagh’s comments after the game in reference to Staal’s decision not to play because the blueliner was not able to play at an acceptable level. Adviser finance order viagra Torts response to McDonagh’s comments was, adviser finance order viagra “Mac should shut up.” Freedom of speech might not be dead around MSG (with Knicks and Rangers personnel on a short leash), adviser finance order viagra but it might be on life support.
• It was nice to see the Rangers finally with the “game of inches” for a change. Adviser finance order viagra After watching a couple of shots clang off iron in Game 2, adviser finance order viagra Joel Ward had a scoring attempt just skitter past the post towards the end of the game.
