May 2013


Purchase viagra online The Rangers better be prepared mentally and physically from the opening faceoff tonight at the Verizon Center because the Capitals are going to look to throw everything at the Blueshirts – including the proverbial kitchen sink – at the start of Game 5. Purchase viagra online Of course, purchase viagra online that is easier said than done given the troubles the Rangers have had at the start of games during the abbreviated season.

Purchase viagra online It is imperative that the Rangers stay focused and concentrate on what they do best when they are playing at their best – be strong and aggressive on the forecheck, purchase viagra online responsible in the defensive zone and stay out of the penalty box.

Purchase viagra online While the Rangers main concern is to stay the course from Games 3 and 4, purchase viagra online the Capitals realize that they need to change their strategy to combat the Rangers.

Purchase viagra online “They kept their two guys coming strong and the third guy was just quick to follow, purchase viagra online” Karl Alzner said to Katie Carrera of The Washington Post. Purchase viagra online “So it made it a little bit tougher for us to get the puck and bump it over like we like to. Purchase viagra online They were a lot better with their dumps as well. Purchase viagra online They made some adjustments, purchase viagra online so we’ll have to adjust now.”

Purchase viagra online You can bet that Hart Trophy nominee Alex Ovechkin is going to look to lay waste to the Rangers after managing just three shots at Madison Square Garden – and that starts with some adjustments from his linemates Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus “JoJo” Johansson.

Purchase viagra online “I don’t think they changed how they play, purchase viagra online” Ovechkin explained to Stephen Whyno of The Washington Times. Purchase viagra online “Of course they put [captain Ryan] Callahan against our line and we all know what he gonna do. Purchase viagra online He try and make physical contact on you. Purchase viagra online Girardi and McDonagh, purchase viagra online they just stay back and try to block the shots. Purchase viagra online If we have our chance to shoot the puck, purchase viagra online we have to shoot it. Purchase viagra online Don’t wait one second — or more — because if I’m gonna be in front of the net with JoJo we still have to shoot.”

Purchase viagra online Lest Ovechkin think that the Rangers are singling him out, purchase viagra online Rangers Coach John Tortorella said the team is just doing what it does.

Purchase viagra online “We’re playing defense the way we always play defense, purchase viagra online” Tortorella said to Jeff Z. Purchase viagra online Klein of the NY Times. Purchase viagra online “Any top line, purchase viagra online that’s any team’s strategy, purchase viagra online to try to keep them in their own end zone. Purchase viagra online No one’s reinventing the wheel here in this series.”

Purchase viagra online Tortorella had a much easier time dictating matchups at the Garden because he the last change as the home team – an advantage he won’t have in Game 5. Purchase viagra online

Purchase viagra online Even with the last change, purchase viagra online Caps Coach Adam Oates knows that keeping his top line away from the Rangers top defensemen is not an easy thing because, purchase viagra online as he explained to Whyno, purchase viagra online “it’s still difficult because they play those two guys so much. Purchase viagra online They play 30 minutes.”

Purchase viagra online While much has been made about the matchups, purchase viagra online it takes more than just one or two players to shut down Ovechkin, purchase viagra online as demonstrated by their play in the games at the Garden.

Purchase viagra online “The last two games, purchase viagra online we’ve had better structure with our forwards in the neutral zone, purchase viagra online” McDonagh admitted to Klein. Purchase viagra online “If he gets through there, purchase viagra online we’re able to have good gaps because of our structure. Purchase viagra online We talk about having to defend in units of five — up the ice in five, purchase viagra online and backcheck in five.”

Purchase viagra online The Rangers will have one advantage in that Martin Erat will not be playing in Game 5 and his availability for the rest of the series is uncertain. Purchase viagra online Oates declined to comments on the results of Erat’s MRI – just going to show that Torts is not the only coach in this series who is keeping injury information to a bare minimum.

Purchase viagra online It is expected that former 2012 first round draft pick (#16) Tom Wilson will be inserted into the lineup on the fourth line with Jay Beagle and Matt Hendricks. Purchase viagra online While he is expected to get the ice time that Chris Kreider got last year, purchase viagra online Wilson is looking to write his own Kreider-like story.

Purchase viagra online The 6-foot-4 and 210 pound RW went from the OHL Playoffs with the Plymouth Whalers to the AHL playoffs with the Hershey Bears and now to the NHL playoffs – all at the age of 19.

Purchase viagra online While the Capitals will be without Erat, purchase viagra online the Rangers will be without Marc Staal who continues to struggle to get back into the lineup on a regular basis. Purchase viagra online After not speaking with the media prior to and after Game 4, purchase viagra online the Rangers alternate captain spoke today.

Purchase viagra online “On the ice it didn’t go particularly well and then as the day went on I just couldn’t see myself getting into a game situation, purchase viagra online” Staal told Andrew Gross. Purchase viagra online “It’s hard to explain, purchase viagra online I don’t really want to try to, purchase viagra online it’ll probably get misunderstood. Purchase viagra online If I’m ready to go, purchase viagra online obviously I want to play I just couldn’t last game.”

Purchase viagra online Gross wrote that Staal did not go into details on the specifics, purchase viagra online but Staal did say that his decision not to play in Game 4 (and presumably any games beyond tonight) had nothing to with what happened in Game 3.

Purchase viagra online It would be foolish for me or anyone else to speculate as to what the problem is. Purchase viagra online Suffice it to say that if Staal’s is not comfortable playing then he is making the right decision. Purchase viagra online The last thing he needs to do it put him into a situation where he is putting himself in danger.

Purchase viagra online While the NHL is making news on the ice with the Stanley Cup playoffs, purchase viagra online the league is also making news off the ice as they continue to release the names of its award nominees. Purchase viagra online You can expect the crowd at the Verizon Center will be vocal in recognizing Ovechkin as one of the three finalists for the Hart Trophy, purchase viagra online along with Sidney Crosby and John Tavares. Purchase viagra online You can also expect a lot of noise coming out of the Western Conference since all three finalists are Eastern Conference players.

Purchase viagra online The other big news has the NHL releasing/leaking that the league will be shutting for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics break from February 9-25, purchase viagra online 2014.

Cialis prices To paraphrase the great Mark Twain, cialis prices “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, cialis prices the Rangers took advantage of some home cooking at Madison Square Garden and evened the series at two games apiece.

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

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

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

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

Cialis prices Only Torts knows for sure whether his keeping his top guns (Ryan Callahan, cialis prices 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.

Cialis prices Even with the Rangers eventually regaining a second two-goal lead, cialis prices nothing ever comes easy for the Blueshirts. Cialis prices 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.

Cialis prices 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. Cialis prices

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

Cialis prices Even though the Rangers “exploded” for four goals, cialis prices last night’s game was close to the success they had during the 2012 playoffs. Cialis prices 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.

Cialis prices In addition to making the series a best-of-three, cialis prices Games 3 and 4 served as the coming out parties for Derick Brassard and Derek Stepan.

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

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

Cialis prices After scoring just one goal in his previous 22 playoff games, cialis prices 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.

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

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

Cialis prices Conversely, cialis prices the Rangers big three (Callahan, cialis prices Nash and Richards) have combined for just one goal and three assists.

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

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

Cialis prices 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. Cialis prices An effective power play does not mean the Rangers have to score on every advantage. Cialis prices Rather, cialis prices it means being active in the Capitals zone and being aggressive and getting their shots on goal and traffic in front of Braden Holtby.

Cialis prices 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. Cialis prices Last night, cialis prices outside of Dan Girardi’s power play goal, cialis prices the Rangers power play reverted back to its ugly ways as it had a negative impact on momentum.

Cialis prices Here are my random Ramblings from Game 4:

Cialis prices • 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, cialis prices Braden Holtby was 7-0 following a Capitals loss in the playoffs.
• Unlike some fans and beat writers, cialis prices I have no problem with defensemen dropping to the ice to block shots or break up odd-man rushes. Cialis prices With that said, cialis prices I am still trying to figure what Michael Del Zotto was doing on the Capitals first goal. Cialis prices Rather than go hit the ice with a purpose, cialis prices MDZ seemed to flop to the ice for the sake of flopping to the ice. Cialis prices Then again, cialis prices 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. Cialis prices 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, cialis prices might be a good thing that Shore isn’t Henrik Lundqvist’s coach as well. Cialis prices 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. Cialis prices Two former Rangers could be inserted into the lineup by Coach Adam Oates – Wojtek Wolski and Joey Crabb. Cialis prices With the Hershey Bears eliminated from the Calder Cup playoffs, cialis prices the Caps recalled Crabb and former 1st round draft pick Tom Wilson.
• However, cialis prices could there be a dark horse replacement for Erat? Brooks Laich skated with the team on Wednesday. Cialis prices Laich, cialis prices who is recovering from a sports hernia surgery that no one has admitted to, cialis prices would be more likely to see action in a Game 7 than Game 5. Cialis prices Whyno tweeted this morning that “Brooks Laich clarifies that he had a small groin procedure, cialis prices not sports hernia.” Insert your own joke here .
• Someone needs to put a BOLO for Rick Nash. Cialis prices By the end of the game Nash had been dropped to the third line. Cialis prices 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. Cialis prices Nash is a veteran of many international tournaments as a member of Team Canada, cialis prices including the Olympics. Cialis prices 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, cialis prices although Andrew Gross reports that 12 regulars and Martin Biron did skate. Cialis prices Staal did not address the media and, cialis prices as expected, cialis prices 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. Cialis prices Torts response to McDonagh’s comments was, cialis prices “Mac should shut up.” Freedom of speech might not be dead around MSG (with Knicks and Rangers personnel on a short leash), cialis prices but it might be on life support.
• It was nice to see the Rangers finally with the “game of inches” for a change. Cialis prices After watching a couple of shots clang off iron in Game 2, cialis prices Joel Ward had a scoring attempt just skitter past the post towards the end of the game.

Cialis angioplasty As fans of The Odd Couple know, cialis angioplasty one should never assume. Cialis angioplasty However, cialis angioplasty I think it is safe to assume that Washington goaltender Braden Holtby found Game 3 to be a bit more of a straining game in comparison to his Game 2 shutout.

Cialis angioplasty For the first time in 11 playoff games between the Rangers and Capitals one team scored four goals. Cialis angioplasty The last time it happened was In Game 4 on April 20, cialis angioplasty 2011 when Washington erased a 3-0 deficit as Jason Chimera scored the game winning goal in double overtime.

Cialis angioplasty Some people will claim there is no such thing as a “must-win” game until you are facing elimination. Cialis angioplasty Considering only three teams have ever overcome a three games to none deficit, cialis angioplasty last night’s game was ever inch a must-win game. Cialis angioplasty

Cialis angioplasty “We knew we had to win this one, cialis angioplasty” Henrik Lundqvist related to Tracee Hamilton of The Washington Post. Cialis angioplasty “It was a must-win. Cialis angioplasty We really stepped up as a group and they kept coming. Cialis angioplasty They’re a good team and you have to respect that, cialis angioplasty but we scored some big goals tonight.”

Cialis angioplasty The game’s first star, cialis angioplasty Derick Brassard, cialis angioplasty echoed his goalie’s sentiments.

Cialis angioplasty “It was do-or-die for us, cialis angioplasty” Brassard said to the AP. Cialis angioplasty “We competed really hard for 60 minutes. Cialis angioplasty We stuck up for each other, cialis angioplasty and that’s what we need to do.”

Cialis angioplasty The Blueshirts received an emotional list with the return of Marc Staal to the lineup after missing 27 games. Cialis angioplasty Staal’s importance to the Rangers cause was not lost on the Capitals.

Cialis angioplasty “He plays great shutdown, cialis angioplasty he’s got a great stick, cialis angioplasty he makes the right plays, cialis angioplasty he can chip in offensively, cialis angioplasty” Karl Alzner related to Stephen Whyno of The Washington Post. Cialis angioplasty “He did some damage against us last year in the playoffs. Cialis angioplasty I just like his game. Cialis angioplasty Even if he’s 60, cialis angioplasty 70 percent I think he could really help them out.”

Cialis angioplasty Whyno also wrote that Alzner called Staal one of his favorite NHL blue liners.

Cialis angioplasty The hearts of the Rangers faithful skipped a couple of beats when Staal absorbed a huge hit from Troy Brouwer. Cialis angioplasty Despite banging his head on the boards, cialis angioplasty Staal shook of the hit and ended up playing 17:17. Cialis angioplasty The one thing that was overlooked was how Rick Nash hit Brouwer right after the hit on Staal.

Cialis angioplasty Not too many people would have been willing to give the Rangers good odds to win a high scoring matchup against the Capitals. Cialis angioplasty Those odds would have been even steeper if you were betting on the Rangers to win the battle of the special teams while losing the five-on-five game within a game.

Cialis angioplasty The Rangers managed to dig deep and find a resilience they have not shown since last year’s playoff run. Cialis angioplasty It would have been easy for a team as fragile as the Rangers to not bounce back every time the Capitals countered. Cialis angioplasty However, cialis angioplasty the Blueshirts managed to fight off the Capitals comebacks.

Cialis angioplasty “Every time we had a goal they would come back and kind of deflate us, cialis angioplasty” Rangers nemesis Mike Green told Whyno.

Cialis angioplasty The Rangers were able to climb back into the series because they finally had a clue on offense. Cialis angioplasty While they still had a tendency to settle for play on the perimeter, cialis angioplasty the Rangers offense kicked into gear when they got it into their thick heads to attack the Washington net.

Cialis angioplasty Brian Boyle’s goal, cialis angioplasty which was a byproduct of a power play, cialis angioplasty ended the Rangers goalless streak at 124:06. Cialis angioplasty It was the type of goal that shows the benefit for driving to the net rather than playing to the perimeter.

Cialis angioplasty The other three Rangers goals were pretty much carbon copies of each other as the Rangers cycling and forechecking paid off because Rangers forwards put themselves in perfect scoring positions by going to the slot.

Cialis angioplasty While the Rangers were 1-6 on the power play, cialis angioplasty for the most part the Blueshirts were more active and were playing with a purpose and a heartbeat with the man advantage. Cialis angioplasty The Blueshirts “official” power play goal was a result of the perfect recipe for power play success: faceoff win plus player movement plus puck movement equals goal.

Cialis angioplasty All of the Rangers positive work on the power play could have come undone if the penalty kill weren’t 3-3. Cialis angioplasty They were aggressive when they needed to be and were patient when they needed to be – especially on the power play at the end of the game as the Capitals pulled Holtby for a six-on-four advantage. Cialis angioplasty

Cialis angioplasty The Rangers effort in the final 1:54 brought back memories of last year’s Black-and-Blueshirts mentality.

Cialis angioplasty “If anything, cialis angioplasty [the Rangers] did a really good job, cialis angioplasty obviously, cialis angioplasty protecting [Lundqvist], cialis angioplasty” Coach Adam Oates explained to Whyno. Cialis angioplasty “We probably just could’ve tried to figure out a better way to get to the net, cialis angioplasty just to start the process of now they’ve got to recover, cialis angioplasty maybe there’s a rebound, cialis angioplasty second wave. Cialis angioplasty Probably a little too cute with it.”

Cialis angioplasty If Rangers fans didn’t know any better, cialis angioplasty Oates’ lament to Whyno could easily have been made by John Tortorella in reference to his team’s power play.

Cialis angioplasty With the special teams battle turned upside down, cialis angioplasty so to was the five-on-five play as the Capitals’ forecheck game pinned the Rangers in their zone far too long for comfort. Cialis angioplasty I was glad to hear Brian Leetch echo the sentiments that I have been extolling for some time now.

Cialis angioplasty While Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti seemed at a loss to explain why the Capitals were pinning the Rangers in their zone, cialis angioplasty Leetch explained that since the Rangers forwards drop down low to protect Lundqvist and clog the shooting lanes, cialis angioplasty the Washington point men are open – which leads to the Rangers chasing the puck in their own zone.

Cialis angioplasty Here are my random Ramblings from Game 3:

Cialis angioplasty • This was the one game where I wanted NBC to cover because I needed to hear what Pierre McGuire had to say about Alex Ovechkin’s embellishment of Brad Richards’ slashing penalty. Cialis angioplasty The only problem I have with the penalty call on Richards is that it should have been high sticking, cialis angioplasty not slashing. Cialis angioplasty However, cialis angioplasty Ovechkin should have been hit with a diving penalty much like Derek Dorsett was in Game 2 and Sidney Crosby should have been assessed in OT of Game 3.
• Derick Brassard Stat #1 – The Elias Sports Bureau reported that the last time a Ranger scored three points or more in his playoff debut at Madison Square Garden was Sergei Zubov in 1994. Cialis angioplasty erick Brassard Stat #2 – The AP reported that Brassard was the first Rangers to score four or more points in his Rangers debut since Doug Bentley did against Boston on January 24, cialis angioplasty 1954.
• What is up with the Daily News running a trumped up story about Bernard King “dissing” Carmelo Anthony instead of the rangers Game 3 win – like Newsday and the NY Post. Cialis angioplasty needless to say, cialis angioplasty my buck went to the Post today. Cialis angioplasty I urge everyone to do the same thing if the Daily News is going to lead with non-stories instead of hockey.
• The Rangers inability/unwillingness to cover the Capitals point men makes Mike Green more dangerous that Alex Ovechkin. Cialis angioplasty They can’t continue to leave Green alone for shots from the point.
• What is with all of these Nicklas Backstrom commercials for Geico? Does he have dirty pictures of the gecko and the cavemen?
• Darroll Powe received a concussion after being hit with a Joel Ward elbow. Cialis angioplasty Do not expect a suspension because it will be termed an inadvertent elbow along the same line of Michael Del Zotto’s hit to James Neal. Cialis angioplasty It is the second concussion Powe has received at the hands of the Capitals – the first came after a collision with Matt Hendricks on February 17. Cialis angioplasty Powe’s injury should pave the way for the return of Ryane Clowe, cialis angioplasty if he is healthy.
• The NHL changed its playoff format in 1987 to make all series the best-of-seven. Cialis angioplasty Since that time, cialis angioplasty Washington has won the first two games of a series six times – and all six time the Capitals lost Game 3. Cialis angioplasty In addition, cialis angioplasty they ended up losing four of those six series. Cialis angioplasty Of course, cialis angioplasty one of those series victories was against the Rangers in 2011.
• If the Rangers big guns are going to continue to struggle offensively, cialis angioplasty they are going to need scoring from their secondary players – as well as continued pinching of their defensemen. Cialis angioplasty Prior to the game-winner, cialis angioplasty Derek Stepan had only one goal in 27 playoff games. Cialis angioplasty Richards is now without a goal in his last nine playoff games and Rick Nash has just one goal in seven playoff games.
• Last night’s victory was the Rangers seventh straight at home – a stretch that has seen them score 30 goals in those games. Cialis angioplasty The Blueshirts will attempt to win two playoff games in a row for the first time since the Rangers defeated the Ottawa Senators in Games 6 and 7 last year.

Derph generic tablet viagra Only once in their 86-year history have the New York Rangers erased a two games to none deficit – in 1996 when they spotted the Montreal Canadiens the first two games of their Conference Quarterfinals battle. Derph generic tablet viagra What made that accomplishment even more incredible was that the Blueshirts had dropped the first two games at home.

Derph generic tablet viagra In that respect, derph generic tablet viagra the 2013 Rangers have an advantage because they have the opportunity to start their series comeback Monday night at Madison Square Garden. Derph generic tablet viagra However, derph generic tablet viagra unless the team finds a way to revive their moribund power play the series may never switch back to the Verizon Center.

Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers and Capitals entered the series as two evenly matched teams that were separated by just one point. Derph generic tablet viagra However in terms of their power plays, derph generic tablet viagra Washington’s man advantage scores a TKO in the battle with the Rangers inept power play.

Derph generic tablet viagra It was apparent midway through this game that two teams were already facing “overtime hockey” because Henrik Lundqvist and Braden Holtby were on their games. Derph generic tablet viagra Of course, derph generic tablet viagra it didn’t hurt that the game within a game that is the “game of inches” were going against the Rangers. Derph generic tablet viagra Anton Stralman rang a shot off the pipes three minutes and change into the game and then Rick Nash hit the post in the final four minutes of the second period as his bulrush drew a Rangers power play.

Derph generic tablet viagra There it goes again, derph generic tablet viagra the Voldemort of the Rangers: the-thing-that-must-not-be-named. Derph generic tablet viagra It is the thing that has the Rangers in a 2-0 deficit rather than even, derph generic tablet viagra or dare I say, derph generic tablet viagra ahead two games to none.

Derph generic tablet viagra While the four blind mice, derph generic tablet viagra er officials, derph generic tablet viagra blew the delay of game call in the final minute of regulation, derph generic tablet viagra did it really matter? The Rangers squandered the power play that Nash drew and then they wasted the golden opportunity the Caps gave them when Washington was called for delay-of-the-game early in Overtime.

Derph generic tablet viagra Then when Ryan McDonagh was sent off for his own delay penalty, derph generic tablet viagra even the most diehard Rangers fan knew that the end was near.

Derph generic tablet viagra The Capitals were able to force the Rangers into that penalty because of the Blueshirts habit of dropping their forwards so deep in the defensive zone, derph generic tablet viagra that they are unable to prevent back passes to the point. Derph generic tablet viagra While that style helps seal off the shooting lanes, derph generic tablet viagra it also tends to put the team back on their heels as they are forechecked into turnovers, derph generic tablet viagra mistakes, derph generic tablet viagra or penalties – which was exactly the case in Overtime.

Derph generic tablet viagra I don’t normally agree with Barry Melrose on too many things, derph generic tablet viagra but ESPN’s analyst was dead solid perfect in explaining the Rangers power play woes on ESPN News following Game 2.

Derph generic tablet viagra “This is a power play with tons of talent … they’re not getting shots through, derph generic tablet viagra” Melrose explained. Derph generic tablet viagra “They play a very stagnant power play …. Derph generic tablet viagra It’s basically five guys standing still.”

Derph generic tablet viagra Contrast that with the Capitals game-winning goal and you see the difference in the two power play units. Derph generic tablet viagra Washington moved the puck and themselves and opened up a shooting lane for Mike Green. Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers? They continue to settle for keeping the puck on the perimeter as they over-pass in an attempt to find that mythical perfect power play shot.

Derph generic tablet viagra Here are my random Ramblings for Game 2:

Derph generic tablet viagra • Call me a mark, derph generic tablet viagra but I always enjoy any hockey game Mike Emrick calls. Derph generic tablet viagra I know he can get a bit annoying when he repeats his pet keywords (e.g. Derph generic tablet viagra pitchforking the puck), derph generic tablet viagra but the man has an encyclopedic knowledge of the game that is only second to his passion for the game. Derph generic tablet viagra I also don’t mind Ed Olczyk as the color analyst – so much so that I would like to see him work on MSG. Derph generic tablet viagra However, derph generic tablet viagra as for Pierre McGuire, derph generic tablet viagra I’d be willing to cough up a Benjamin Franklin to the first place who rings a puck off his head.
• No offense to Braden Holtby, derph generic tablet viagra but why does every goaltender the Rangers face – especially in the playoffs – turn into a Vezina Trophy winner? Why can’t one of them look as bad as Marc-Andre Fleury did in allowing that bank shot game winner against the New York Islanders on Friday night?
• While the Rangers would have spit-the-bit on the ensuing power play anyway, derph generic tablet viagra how did four officials miss that delay-of-game penalty at the end of regulation? It is calls like that which give pause to the conspiracy theories Rangers fans hatch against the NHL. Derph generic tablet viagra It is a black and white call that leaves no room for interpretation. Derph generic tablet viagra Frankly, derph generic tablet viagra I’d like to see the NHL give officials a little leeway, derph generic tablet viagra especially on plays like that where a player is trying to clear a rolling/bouncing puck. Derph generic tablet viagra Instead of calling the penalty, derph generic tablet viagra keep the faceoff in the defensive zone and treat it like an icing – the offending team is not able to substitute players.
• While I am on my officiating soapbox, derph generic tablet viagra I detest it when referees eliminate a power play by calling an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for diving. Derph generic tablet viagra As far as I am concerned, derph generic tablet viagra it is one or the other. Derph generic tablet viagra If it is a penalty then I don’t care if a player dives/embellishes on the penalty. Derph generic tablet viagra Referees don’t call penalties on players who stay on the ice after blocking a shot and then miraculously skate off the ice on their own and never miss a shift.
• If Derek Dorsett deserved the diving penalty, derph generic tablet viagra then why wasn’t one called on Rick Nash when Nicklas Backstrom took him down in the neutral zone in the second period? If there is no penalty Backstrom, derph generic tablet viagra they Nash “must” have taken a dive to try and draw a penalty.
• Here is why I hate McGuire so much. Derph generic tablet viagra On the play where Dorsett was called for the dive Pierre said, derph generic tablet viagra “Professional players don’t fall like that”. Derph generic tablet viagra Wow, derph generic tablet viagra I could have sworn NBC and McGuire have covered Pittsburgh Penguins games because a certain #87 dives as much as Greg Louganis.
• Rangers are now 1-9 in their last 10 playoff games at the Verizon Center. Derph generic tablet viagra The lone win was Marian Gaborik’s triple overtime winner nearly a year ago (May 2, derph generic tablet viagra 2012). Derph generic tablet viagra In those 10 games, derph generic tablet viagra the Rangers have scored nine goals (just one on the PP) while allowing 23.
• Game 2 was the first time since 1933 that a Rangers playoff game ended scoreless after regulation. Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers and Montreal Maroons played to a 0-0 tie. Derph generic tablet viagra According to the NHL playoff format at that time, derph generic tablet viagra the series was a two-game, derph generic tablet viagra total-goals series. Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers were eliminated when they lost the second game 2-1 – thus losing the series two goals to one.
• Looking ahead to Game 3, derph generic tablet viagra it will not surprise me to see the rest of the Rangers walking wounded return to the lineup. Derph generic tablet viagra Brian Boyle and Derek Dorsett skated in Game 2 and I would look for Ryane Clowe and Marc Staal to be dressed for Game 3. Derph generic tablet viagra On Friday, derph generic tablet viagra Coach John Tortorella said that urgency is more important than conditioning in terms of players getting back into the lineup. Derph generic tablet viagra “If we don’t win, derph generic tablet viagra we’re done. Derph generic tablet viagra So I don’t give a damn about the conditioning, derph generic tablet viagra” Tortorella said. Derph generic tablet viagra “If I think a player is gonna help us, derph generic tablet viagra he’s going to play.”
• The Rangers have to get more traffic in front of Holtby and get more shots ON GOAL – especially on the power play. Derph generic tablet viagra When they have the man advantage, derph generic tablet viagra they have to stress movement of players and the puck as a means of opening up shooting lanes and they have to throw a lot of rubber ON GOAL.
• Tortorella needs to get Brad Richards off the point on the power play. Derph generic tablet viagra He is too tentative with the puck. Derph generic tablet viagra The Rangers need someone who is more decisive and willing to shoot the puck. Derph generic tablet viagra While has hasn’t scored yet, derph generic tablet viagra Rick Nash has stepped up his effort. Derph generic tablet viagra Richards, derph generic tablet viagra not so much.
• At the same time, derph generic tablet viagra forwards have to go to the top of the crease and stop setting up at the side of the net. Derph generic tablet viagra Going to the top of the crease will draw at least one defenseman’s attention – which opens up the ice and sets up the next bit of advice.
• Working the offense from behind the goal line, derph generic tablet viagra and more specifically, derph generic tablet viagra from behind the net is still a good strategy. Derph generic tablet viagra The only adjustment they might want to make is not trying as many stuff-in wraparounds. Derph generic tablet viagra Instead, derph generic tablet viagra they might want to take an extra stride or two so that they have a little more room, derph generic tablet viagra and a better angle, derph generic tablet viagra to shoot.
• The Rangers also need to stop settling for long-range shots. Derph generic tablet viagra They need to start driving to the net with the puck. Derph generic tablet viagra That will draw defenders and open chances for rebounds and loose pucks. Derph generic tablet viagra It also might draw more power plays. Derph generic tablet viagra Look even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then and if the Rangers keep drawing power plays they are bound to score on of these days.

Brand name cialis The optimistic glass-is-half-full Rangers fan looks at the team’s Game loss as extension of the cliché that hockey is a game of inches. Brand name cialis An inch here and inch there and Carl Hagelin tallies a hat trick and john Moore’s goal that wasn’t a goal turns out to be the game-winner.

Brand name cialis The pessimistic glass-is-half-empty Rangers fan realizes that the team’s fortunes were doomed as a result of their inept five-on-three power play that paved the way to the Capitals victory.

Brand name cialis Stepping back and looking at the big picture, brand name cialis the pessimistic Rangers fan, brand name cialis which is kind of redundant, brand name cialis wins the Game 1 debate because Capitals fans can bemoan the same lament of opportunities that were “just missed” chances. Brand name cialis However, brand name cialis there is no arguing that the Rangers inability on their power play proved to be a momentum/game changer – a belief that both sides signed off on.

Brand name cialis “Anytime you kill a five-on-three, brand name cialis especially in playoffs, brand name cialis the momentum goes the other way, brand name cialis for sure, brand name cialis” Jason Chimera told Stephen Whyno of The Washington Times. Brand name cialis “If they get a goal, brand name cialis they’re feeling it. Brand name cialis If we get a kill, brand name cialis obviously the crowd gets into it or we get into it. Brand name cialis Everyone’s pumped up. Brand name cialis It’s a good way to create momentum for us.”

Brand name cialis It is one thing for a team not to score on their power play, brand name cialis but it is another thing for that power play to be so incompetent that the momentum shifts as a result

Brand name cialis “That’s what the playoffs is about: Momentum swings and trying not to get hurt when you lose the momentum, brand name cialis” Ryan Callahan explained to Mark Giannotto of The Washington Post. Brand name cialis “I thought tonight we got hurt when we lost it.”

Brand name cialis Most fans are conditioned to see momentum as something that is carried over from game to game. Brand name cialis While that might be the case in some instances, brand name cialis more often than not, brand name cialis the idea of momentum and momentum shifts are confined within the framework of a game.

Brand name cialis Teams that are able to stem the tides of momentum shifts are the teams that win in the playoffs – especially when you have two evenly matched teams. Brand name cialis Contrary to what might be written, brand name cialis only one point separated the Southeast Division champion Capitals and the sixth seed Rangers.

Brand name cialis The difference in Game 1 was that the Blueshirts not only didn’t seize the momentum of the game during their two-man advantage, brand name cialis they served up to the Caps on a silver platter in a 46-second stretch that proved to be the margin of victory.

Brand name cialis In terms of goals against, brand name cialis the Rangers were pretty consistent (34-38-36). Brand name cialis However, brand name cialis it seems like that whenever the Rangers lose it turns out that their play in the second period proves to be their undoing. Brand name cialis I don’t know that as a fact, brand name cialis but it sure feels that way to me. Brand name cialis

Brand name cialis Prior to the third period, brand name cialis assistant coach Michael Sullivan told MSG’s John Giannone, brand name cialis “We actually played a pretty good second period.” Putting aside “coach speak”, brand name cialis there is no way you turn a 1-0 lead into a 3-1 deficit and say you played a pretty good period. Brand name cialis I would hate to see what a bad period would look like.

Brand name cialis The key thing for the Rangers is to focus on what they did right in and make sure they correct what they did wrong in Game 1. Brand name cialis The Blueshirts main objective is to gain a split of the first two games at the Verizon Center. Brand name cialis While it is always better to win that first game because it sets you up for the possibility of returning home up two games to none, brand name cialis a win on Saturday afternoon will go a long way to help erase the memory of Game 1.

Brand name cialis Here are some random Ramblings on Game 1:

Brand name cialis • If the officials are going to hunt for calls to make like they did on Jay beagle in the first period and Aron Asham in the second period (the one that the Caps scored on), brand name cialis then the NHL might as well save everyone’s time and advance the Capitals to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Brand name cialis While the Rangers did not the five-on-five “mini-game”, brand name cialis they are not going to win a battle of power plays.
• With that said, brand name cialis the Blueshirts looked very confident killing penalties when they were in aggressive mode and put pressure on the Capitals – it even led to a Hagelin shorthanded breakaway. Brand name cialis By the way, brand name cialis Hagelin was, brand name cialis by far, brand name cialis the best Ranger on the ice last night.
• On the downside in the special teams battle, brand name cialis the Rangers need to find a way to win faceoffs because they were horrible last night. Brand name cialis It showed how much they miss Brian Boyle and his 56% faceoff record.
• If my wife Roe has her way, brand name cialis that guy who blows that horn at the Verizon Center will be blowing out of another orifice if she ever sees him – and I believe her!
• While Steve Oleksy made a gorgeous pass to Marcus Johansson on the eventual game winning goal, brand name cialis Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi have to do a better job of communicating so they don’t let any forward sneak behind them.
• Speaking of Oleksy, brand name cialis the rangers have to capitalize (pun not intended) when Adam Oates sends out Oleksy and Jack Hillen. Brand name cialis John Tortorella has to use the last change advantage at the Garden to the fullest against that pairing.
• On the rare times that Rangers forwards do meander in front of the net to screen Braden Holtby (especially on the power play); they need to stop facing the point because they are in no position to bang home any rebounds. Brand name cialis There was one point in the second period where Callahan was in front and was facing the point as he jumped as a shot was put towards goal. Brand name cialis It was nice that he was in front, brand name cialis but since he was in the air and facing away from the goal he was in no position to pounce on a potential rebound. Brand name cialis Then again, brand name cialis that would require the rangers to hit the net with their shots.
• I forgot where I read it online, brand name cialis but some writer mentioned that Holtby is weak on wraparounds. Brand name cialis Granted Hagelin’s goal did bang in off John Erskine’s skate, brand name cialis the Blueshirts might want to treat Holtby like Martin Brodeur – work the puck from behind the net and direct as many pucks on net as possible – bad angle shots included.
• Case in point: John Moore’s goal. Brand name cialis I know it was a goal, brand name cialis you know it was a goal; even Holtby knows it was a goal even though he said he had the puck in his blocker hand. Brand name cialis The bottom line is that the officials and the league office in Toronto got the call right. Brand name cialis You could not tell “exactly” where the puck was. Brand name cialis You have to wonder if there is a way for the NHL to put tiny camera on the underside of the cross bar or something that would give a real close view of the puck in those type of situations.
• I love Henrik Lundqvist as much as the next Rangers fan, brand name cialis but he can’t afford to give up weak goals like he did on Chimera. Brand name cialis It wasn’t the reason the Rangers lost, brand name cialis but it sure made that hill to climb a lot steeper than it needed to be.
• Rangers entered the game with an 18-2-1 record when scoring the first goal and a 13-0-1 record when leading after the first period. Brand name cialis So much for statistics. Brand name cialis Hopefully another statistic will bite the dust – this one courtesy of Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Brand name cialis Brooks wrote that the Rangers have not won a playoff series after losing the first game since their Second Round win over the New Jersey Devils in 1997. Brand name cialis Of course, brand name cialis that state is a bit misleading because the Rangers weren’t even in the playoffs for a lot of those years. Brand name cialis However, brand name cialis they have lost the last four series since the lockout where they have dropped Game 1.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Yogi Berra would be very proud of the New York Rangers-Washington Capitals playoff matchup because he would be able to say that it is a case of “déjà vu all over again” as the two teams meet for the fourth time in five years. Viagra for sale in gibralter Unlike last year’s seven game battle, viagra for sale in gibralter the seventh and deciding game will be at the Verizon Center, viagra for sale in gibralter not Madison Square Garden.

Viagra for sale in gibralter In the case of the Rangers and Capitals, viagra for sale in gibralter familiarity does indeed breed contempt. Viagra for sale in gibralter Why else would Nicklas Backstrom feel the need to stoke the fire on the series while speaking to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post?

Viagra for sale in gibralter “Obviously we felt we were better for seven games last year, viagra for sale in gibralter” Backstrom opined. Viagra for sale in gibralter “We know they’re a good team and we played them before. Viagra for sale in gibralter It’s going to be a tough battle. Viagra for sale in gibralter I think we’re ready and they’re probably ready as well. Viagra for sale in gibralter It’s going to be, viagra for sale in gibralter I think, viagra for sale in gibralter a long series.”

Viagra for sale in gibralter If he doesn’t back up that opinion, viagra for sale in gibralter it is going to be an even longer off-season.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Honestly, viagra for sale in gibralter I am not that big of a “bulletin board material” kind of guy. Viagra for sale in gibralter If you need something like that to motivate you to win at this time of the season, viagra for sale in gibralter then you have already lost the battle.

Viagra for sale in gibralter With that said, viagra for sale in gibralter I like the response that Dan Girardi gave when he was asked for his take.

Viagra for sale in gibralter “We’re not getting into a war of words, viagra for sale in gibralter” Girardi responded to the AP. Viagra for sale in gibralter “They’re playing really well. Viagra for sale in gibralter Like us, viagra for sale in gibralter they had a really solid April. Viagra for sale in gibralter We expect the series to be hard-fought, viagra for sale in gibralter with a lot of hitting.”
Smart man that Girardi, viagra for sale in gibralter he is going to let his actions speak louder than words.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Both teams enter the playoffs from similar standpoints – they each relied on red-hot finishes to secure their playoff berths. Viagra for sale in gibralter The Capitals overcame a 2-8-1 start under rookie coach Adam Oates as they thundered home at a 15-2-2 pace to win the Southeast Division. Viagra for sale in gibralter

Viagra for sale in gibralter While the Rangers were not as hot as the Caps down the stretch, viagra for sale in gibralter the Blueshirts still finished up the regular season on a 10-3-1 run as they earned the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference – and given the teams in the first two spots, viagra for sale in gibralter that is a good thing. Viagra for sale in gibralter As a measure, viagra for sale in gibralter the Capitals went 11-1-1 during that same time period.

Viagra for sale in gibralter While the Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens each have their own woes, viagra for sale in gibralter both teams feasted on the Blueshirts with the Rangers only garnering a 6-1 win over the Penguins late in the season and tallying only one goal in three losses to the Habs.

Viagra for sale in gibralter As a result, viagra for sale in gibralter the Capitals might have been the best matchup for the Blueshirts given the other two alternatives. Viagra for sale in gibralter The Rangers went 2-0-1 with Washington winning the final game of their series in a shootout on March 24.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Obviously the Rangers must find a way to neutralize Alex Ovechkin in the series. Viagra for sale in gibralter He was held without a point in both Rangers wins and scored a goal and an assist in the Caps victory. Viagra for sale in gibralter Keeping Ovechkin at bay is easier said than done because it has been his resurgence that keyed the Capitals drive to the Southeast Division title. Viagra for sale in gibralter The Caps captain scored 22 goals in his final 21 games as he grew more comfortable with his shirt to right wing.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Rangers Coach John Tortorella will have to work extra hard, viagra for sale in gibralter especially when the Blueshirts on the road, viagra for sale in gibralter to get his preferred matchup against Ovechkin. Viagra for sale in gibralter Ideally, viagra for sale in gibralter he would use the tandem on Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi. Viagra for sale in gibralter However, viagra for sale in gibralter with Oates controlling the matchups with the last change at home, viagra for sale in gibralter Torts might have to split his top two defensemen to cover all his bases.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Even if the Rangers manage to limit Ovechkin, viagra for sale in gibralter they have another task that is equally as important – stay out of the penalty box. Viagra for sale in gibralter The Capitals led the NHL with a power play that connected at a 26.7% clip – which is was too close to doubling the Rangers man advantage numbers (15.7%). Viagra for sale in gibralter Simply put, viagra for sale in gibralter the Rangers need to make this series about five-one-five play despite what happened in the season series.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Believe it or not, viagra for sale in gibralter but the Blueshirts had the better of the power play battles during the regular season as they scored a power play goal in each game (3-9) while the Capitals scored just once in 10 attempts. Viagra for sale in gibralter Of course, viagra for sale in gibralter that one power play goal came in Washington’s lone victory.

Viagra for sale in gibralter If I asked you who led the Caps in scoring in their three games against the Rangers, viagra for sale in gibralter Nicklas Backstrom’s name would probably come up after Ovechkin. Viagra for sale in gibralter With his goal and assist, viagra for sale in gibralter Backstrom was tied for the team lead against the Blueshirts. Viagra for sale in gibralter The other name would not be among your first 15-20 guesses as defenseman Steve Oleksy also scored a goal and an assist.

Viagra for sale in gibralter For the Rangers, viagra for sale in gibralter Derek Stephan proved to be the go-to guy as he scored a goal in each of the games – including PPGs in the first and third games. Viagra for sale in gibralter Four other Rangers also posted three points against the Caps: Brad Richards and Carl Hagelin each had a goal and two assists while Ryan McDonagh and Rick Nash each had three assists.

Viagra for sale in gibralter You can take all of those stats with a grain of salt and pretty much wipe the slate clean. Viagra for sale in gibralter Each team has pretty much been transformed from what they were at the start of the season. Viagra for sale in gibralter Heck, viagra for sale in gibralter the Rangers have reshaped their team twice during the 48-game season without so much as a benefit of a pre-season – with much of it coming after the trade deadline.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Prior to the deadline, viagra for sale in gibralter the Blueshirts were averaging 2.26 goals per game and were stumbling with a power play hovering around 14%. Viagra for sale in gibralter After the deadline, viagra for sale in gibralter the Rangers offense jumped to 3.61 goals per game and a power play around 20%.

Viagra for sale in gibralter It was no coincidence that Washington turned their season around after their horrid first 11 games. Viagra for sale in gibralter During that 2-8-1 stretch, viagra for sale in gibralter they were averaging just 2.27 goals per game. Viagra for sale in gibralter During their final 37 games, viagra for sale in gibralter the Capitals offense jumped up to 3.21 goals per game.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The biggest key to the Rangers success against the Capitals, viagra for sale in gibralter and really any team, viagra for sale in gibralter is to keep the puck out of their own end. Viagra for sale in gibralter Far too many times the Rangers get pinned in their own end to the point of being caught out of position – which leads to goals against. Viagra for sale in gibralter

Viagra for sale in gibralter The reason is simple, viagra for sale in gibralter the solution not so much. Viagra for sale in gibralter The Rangers forwards spend a lot of their time in the defensive zone collapsing down below the circles as they look to block shots and clog the shooting lanes. Viagra for sale in gibralter The problem with style is that it leaves your opponent’s defensemen open at the points. Viagra for sale in gibralter

Viagra for sale in gibralter As a result, viagra for sale in gibralter the opponent can ease the Rangers checking (and backchecking) by rotating the puck to the point. Viagra for sale in gibralter That forces the Rangers forwards to have to scramble to get back into position to cover the defensemen. Viagra for sale in gibralter If the opposition is moving the puck quickly enough, viagra for sale in gibralter the Rangers find themselves scrambling because the puck can always move faster than a player.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The Rangers are not going to completely change their defensive system so they have to be extra mindful of the back passes to the point. Viagra for sale in gibralter The forwards are going to have to be more active in two areas: deflecting back passes with their sticks and getting out to the defensemen quicker to put more pressure on them – thus interrupting or slowing the puck movement.

Viagra for sale in gibralter In the offensive end of the ice, viagra for sale in gibralter The Rangers need to get bodies in front of Braden Holtby and make his life difficult when it comes to seeing shots from the point. Viagra for sale in gibralter Of course that strategy does require the Rangers to shoot more and to be more accurate with their shots. Viagra for sale in gibralter They also need to be more selfish with the puck and not look to set up the perfect play when a shot on goal is just as good. Viagra for sale in gibralter Sometimes your best passes are shots on goal.

Viagra for sale in gibralter As you might imagine, viagra for sale in gibralter both teams are difficult to beat when they get the first goal. Viagra for sale in gibralter Washington was 17-8-1 when scoring first while the Rangers were 18-2-1. Viagra for sale in gibralter

Viagra for sale in gibralter The same can be said with in terms of the two teams being difficult to beat when they lead after two periods: Washington is 19-3-0 and the Rangers are 16-0-0.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The Rangers task would be much easier if they were healthier. Viagra for sale in gibralter Then again, viagra for sale in gibralter that could and should be said about all teams in the playoffs. Viagra for sale in gibralter While the NHL’s regular season was only 48 games long, viagra for sale in gibralter teams are still recovering from injuries and assorted bumps and bruises.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The Capitals will be missing C Brooks Laich who is expected to miss at least the first round of the playoffs following a sports hernia surgery in early April and RW Joel Ward should be ready to play after recovering from a knee injury.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The status of Brian Boyle, viagra for sale in gibralter Ryane Clowe, viagra for sale in gibralter Derek Dorsett and Marc Staal are all still up in the air. Viagra for sale in gibralter Of the foursome, viagra for sale in gibralter Staal’s absence is the one that hurts the Rangers the most. Viagra for sale in gibralter A healthy Staal would give Tortorella another weapon to defend Ovechkin and would limit Oates’ ability to get Ovechkin on the ice against a non-lockdown defender.

Viagra for sale in gibralter With Ovechkin playing right wing, viagra for sale in gibralter the heavy duty of defending him falls more on the left defenseman. Viagra for sale in gibralter While McDonagh is more than capable to the task, viagra for sale in gibralter it would be much easier in terms of matchup if Staal could play. Viagra for sale in gibralter Staal has been quoted as saying that he is “probably” not going to play one. Viagra for sale in gibralter If I were a gambling man, viagra for sale in gibralter it would not surprise me to see Staal in the starting lineup for Game 3 at the Garden – if not sooner. Viagra for sale in gibralter Remember, viagra for sale in gibralter Staal’s return to the lineup last year for the Winter Classic seemed to come out of leftfield.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The loss of Clowe and Dorsett should not be overlooked either. Viagra for sale in gibralter Both players would provide much needed size, viagra for sale in gibralter grit and, viagra for sale in gibralter as Torts is fond of saying, viagra for sale in gibralter jam in a series that shapes up to be another war. Viagra for sale in gibralter Clowe would also provide the Rangers with someone who thrives on winning board battles and battles in front of the net. Viagra for sale in gibralter It also robs them of someone who has 65 games of playoff experience.

Viagra for sale in gibralter From all indications, viagra for sale in gibralter Dorsett would bring the same style of play and intangibles that Brandon Prust brought to the table.

Viagra for sale in gibralter While fans like to bemoan all of the things that Brian Boyle doesn’t do, viagra for sale in gibralter the Rangers miss the one thing that he is the best at among the Rangers – winning faceoffs. Viagra for sale in gibralter Boyle’s 56.4% faceoff percentage is the best in the series and he is one of the forwards who receives heavy rotation killing penalties.

Viagra for sale in gibralter The possible return of these three forwards would go a long way in supporting the top two lines. Viagra for sale in gibralter With the return of these skating wounded would deepen the Rangers to the point of having four solid lines – even if Tortorella’s penchant is for rolling three lines.

Viagra for sale in gibralter One knock I have seen people level against the Rangers is the playoff inexperience of their best offensive threat. Viagra for sale in gibralter Yes, viagra for sale in gibralter Rick Nash is 0-4 when it comes to playoff games. Viagra for sale in gibralter However, viagra for sale in gibralter those same people fail to take into account all of his International experience.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Nash won Silver Medals in the world Juniors 92002) and World Championships (2005 & 2008) and Gold Medals in the World Championships (2007) and the Olympics (2010 – also played in 2006). Viagra for sale in gibralter In 54 International games as a pro, viagra for sale in gibralter Nash has 53 points.

Viagra for sale in gibralter I have come to the point where it is time for me to put or shut up and make my series prediction. Viagra for sale in gibralter I thought long and hard about taking the “safe” way out and predict the Rangers in six or the Capitals in seven, viagra for sale in gibralter but that is a gutless to go.

Viagra for sale in gibralter As a result, viagra for sale in gibralter my prediction is the Rangers win the series in six games. Viagra for sale in gibralter The four days off were just the elixir the Blueshirts needed to get bumps and bruises healed while giving some extra time for the walking wounded to return. Viagra for sale in gibralter It would not surprise me to see all of the injured players back in the lineup by the end of the series.

Viagra for sale in gibralter I also base my prediction on the one trump card the Rangers can play in each and every playoff matchup they are in. Viagra for sale in gibralter They enter any series with the best goaltender on the ice. Viagra for sale in gibralter Henrik Lundqvist got close to the Holy Grail last year and has to be even more determined to take the final steps to the Stanley Cup.

Viagra for sale in gibralter I also base my prediction on the resurgence Brad Richards had at the end of the season. Viagra for sale in gibralter B-Rich can go a long way to make Ranger fans forget his dreadful regular season –sans the last few games. Viagra for sale in gibralter He can also go a long way in ending the calls for the Rangers to use their final buyout on him this summer.

Viagra for sale in gibralter Lastly, viagra for sale in gibralter I base this prediction on the 2013 playoffs being Rick Nash’s Breakout Party. Viagra for sale in gibralter During the regular season Nash’s third period play offered a glimpse into what Rangers fans can expect as he takes the next step onto the NHL’s brightest stage, viagra for sale in gibralter the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
