Buy viagra china Here we go again. Buy viagra china For the second straight playoff series the New York Rangers find themselves down two games to none after dropping the first two contests on the road. Buy viagra china While the Blueshirts have shown that they can recover from such a deficit, buy viagra china you don’t want to keep going back to that well because one of these days that well is going to be bone dry.

Buy viagra china The Rangers are tempting fate if they are looking for history to repeat itself because the Boston Bruins are not the Washington Capitals. Buy viagra china The Bruins are a better team than the Caps, buy viagra china have better goaltending, buy viagra china and most importantly, buy viagra china they are a battle-tested playoff team a point that Henrik Lundqvist confirmed.

Buy viagra china ‘‘We’ve done it before, buy viagra china’’ Lundqvist said to Dan Rosen of nhl.com, buy viagra china ‘‘but I think we are playing a better team now so it’s going to be tough to do it.’’

Buy viagra china However, buy viagra china history will not be on the Rangers ide because no NHL team has ever rebounded from being down 2-0 in back-to-back series.

Buy viagra china The first thing I wrote down in my notes for Game 2 was written on Saturday night. Buy viagra china I wrote that the Rangers needed to capitalize on the momentum shifts that were going to occur on Sunday – something they did not do after scoring late in the second period and early in the third period of Game 1.

Buy viagra china The Blueshirts did show resiliency after spotting the Bruins leads of 1-0 and 2-1 with Ryan Callahan and Rick Nash stepping up to score goals to tie the game. Buy viagra china Derek Stepan nearly put the Rangers in front about eight and half minutes into the second period, buy viagra china but his shot hit the post. Buy viagra china

Buy viagra china Boston took advantage of poor Rangers defensive coverage following a faceoff win at the Bruins blue line during four-on-four play as Johnny Boychuk’s wrist shot beat a screened Lundqvist for the eventual winning goal.

Buy viagra china Poor defensive coverage plagued the Rangers all night long as they kept getting caught watching the puck and not paying attention to the weak side.

Buy viagra china That deficiency pretty much ended the game when the Bruins scored 26 seconds into the third period on a play that was identical to Boston’s overtime goal in Game 1. Buy viagra china Dan Girardi, buy viagra china on ice for all five Bruins goals, buy viagra china was caught watching the puck and lost track of Brad Marchand in front.

Buy viagra china ‘‘We felt really good going into the third, buy viagra china and to have that type of goal go in — it’s just two-on-two — it hurts you, buy viagra china’’ Tortorella admitted to Howard Ulmer of the AP. Buy viagra china ‘‘We couldn’t generate anything, buy viagra china and then they’re just going to fill the middle and they’re just going to jam you.’’

Buy viagra china The Rangers constant ignoring of the weak side if one of the reasons why Bruins’ defensemen have scored four of Boston’s eight goals in this series. Buy viagra china Given that Boston’s blueliners have scored 10 of the team’s 30 goals, buy viagra china the Rangers must pay attention to the defensemen and they must not get caught focusing solely on the puck.

Buy viagra china While the Bruins finished off the scoring at 12:39, buy viagra china the Bruins realized that the series is closer than Game 2 showed.

Buy viagra china ‘‘We didn’t play our best, buy viagra china’’ Marchand told Dan Rosen. Buy viagra china ‘‘They had a lot of opportunities that if they would’ve converted on, buy viagra china then it would be a completely different story right now. Buy viagra china I think especially in the second period, buy viagra china they took it to us, buy viagra china but we were able to bounce back. Buy viagra china It’s definitely a very even series.’’

Buy viagra china With the game out of hand, buy viagra china I think Coach John Tortorella lost a chance to “gamble” on a little gamesmanship. Buy viagra china

Buy viagra china Pierre McGuire made a point of a Zdeno Chara slap shot from the point acting like a “curveball”. Buy viagra china Add to that his “knucklepuck” goal in Game 1 and I would have asked the referees to measure his stick to make sure it if legal. Buy viagra china The worst that would happen is that the Rangers would have to kill a power play. Buy viagra china The best case is you get Chara to have to change his sticks and possibly deflect attention from the Rangers poor third period and transfer it on to the coach – a tactic Tortorella uses in his post-game press conferences.

Buy viagra china Speaking of the Rangers coach, buy viagra china Tortorella is confident his team will respond when they return to Madison Square Garden.

Buy viagra china “We don’t want to lose two games here, buy viagra china no one does, buy viagra china” Torts told Brett Cyrgalis of the NY Post. Buy viagra china “But there’s no give in this team. Buy viagra china There will be no give in this team. Buy viagra china We need to go win a game. Buy viagra china Not look anywhere else, buy viagra china just try to win our first home game this series.”

Buy viagra china Here are my random Ramblings for Game 2:

Buy viagra china • First off, buy viagra china it is amazing that a storied franchise like the Boston Bruins would have resort to that low-rent “Woo” cheer following every goal. Buy viagra china It is cheesy when the New York Islanders do it and even more cheesy for an Original Six team to do it. Buy viagra china If the Rangers ever did that at the Garden, buy viagra china I would be extremely tempted to burn all my Rangers gear.
• Sunday’s game was the first time Lundqvist allowed more than four goals was a 5-2 loss to Anaheim on March 9, buy viagra china 2011. Buy viagra china It in the ensuing 151 games (regular season and playoffs), buy viagra china Lundqvist allowed four goals only 13 times.
• Lundqvist has now started 29 straight games against Boston.
• The Rangers power(less) play is in full playoff mode. Buy viagra china They are 0-for-8 against Boston, buy viagra china goalless in their last 19 attempts, buy viagra china and 2-for-36 in the playoffs.
• The Rangers have allowed 20 goals in the playoffs, buy viagra china with 10 of them coming in the second period. Buy viagra china When you factor in the three overtime goals, buy viagra china the Blueshirts have allowed 13 goals during the long-change.
• Many fans are calling for Brad Richards to be benched. Buy viagra china Unless Ryane Clowe or Darroll Powe is ready to get back into the lineup, buy viagra china you can forget that idea. Buy viagra china Kris Newbury is not going to get the job done either. Buy viagra china The Blueshirts are better off with Richards in the hopes he somehow finds his [playoff magic. Buy viagra china In the meantime, buy viagra china keep him off the power play – especially on the point.
• Speaking of Richards, buy viagra china Ron Duguay spoke with WFAN’s John Jastremski on Saturday night. Buy viagra china Duguay believes that Richards’ problems are all mental and that he needs to relax. Buy viagra china Much has been made about Richards slowing down and losing a step or two. Buy viagra china That is possible, buy viagra china but there are also ways to make up for that through smarter play and better positioning.
• Richards also spoke about Nash’s offensive struggles. Buy viagra china Duguay pointed out that teams are much more diligent about checking the opposition’s top players – much like the Rangers did against Alex Ovechkin. Buy viagra china Players like Nash have to learn other ways to score.
• Much has been made about Tortorella’s comment about Carl Hagelin’s play on the power play. Buy viagra china The only problem with his comment is he should have extended it to all of his players except Lundqvist and Martin Biron – and the first ones at the top of the list should have been Tortorella and Mike Sullivan.
• While Pierre McGuire is like a hungry dog with a bone when he fixates on a player or topic, buy viagra china kudos for him questioning one of the referees when Zdeno Chara broken a Rangers forward’s stick. Buy viagra china McGuire correctly questioned why the referee along the icing line, buy viagra china and only a few feet away, buy viagra china did not call the penalty while the referee in the neutral zone had to make the call.
• Heading into Game 3 the Rangers have to be much more diligent with their defensive zone coverage. Buy viagra china They must spend as much time worrying about the weak side play as they are on the puck – especially the way the Boston defensemen are getting involved in the offense. Buy viagra china The Rangers have to be quicker and more aggressive on their forecheck as way to slow down the Bruins breakouts. Buy viagra china When the Bruins do break out, buy viagra china all five Rangers have to know what their defensive assignments are.
• During the interminable pre-game show Mike Milbury said, buy viagra china “I haven’t heard John Tortorella take responsibility” for the Rangers power play woes. Buy viagra china Funny, buy viagra china but I don’t recall Milbury ever taking responsibility for the mess that he made on Long Island. Buy viagra china Milbury deals away Chara, buy viagra china Bill Muckalt and a 1st round pick (Ottawa drafts Jason Spezza) and acquires Alexei Yashin who is signed for a 10-year/$90 million contract. Buy viagra china He deals Roberto Luongo and Olli Jokinen for Oleg Kvasha and Mark Parrish. Buy viagra china He then drafts Rick DiPietro first overall to replace Luongo, buy viagra china thus passing on the likes of Dany Heatley and Marian Gaborik. Buy viagra china Hey Mike, buy viagra china for moves like that you deserve to beaten with your own shoe.
